A Love Story {Part 2}

A Love Story

If you didn't get a chance to read part 1, you can read it here.


As we walked, I nervously looked this way and that to see if I could catch a glimpse of him somewhere.  Finally we rounded a corner and headed down the street where the guys dorms were located.  I saw a car I didn't recognize full of stuff, and I could see someone pulling out suitcases and boxes.

My breath caught in my throat as I realized it was him!

We continued walking, my parents probably amused at my attempts to be nonchalant on this walk in which I just “happened” to be participating.

As we got closer to him, my brain started to feel paralyzed.  We finally came up beside his car, and my parents greeted him and asked him a couple questions about his summer.  I hung back behind them, looking like a shy schoolgirl, and I didn't say a word.  I might have mumbled a quiet “hello”, but I can't remember for sure.  He didn't say much more than that to me either.

As we finished our walk, I was excited and nervous at the same time.  Dozens of thoughts were swirling through my mind, and I carried on mental conversations with myself.

“He hardly even spoke to me.”

“Well, you weren't exactly acting like you wanted to talk.”

“Well, I didn't know what to say, and besides my parents were standing right there.  Besides, maybe he doesn't even like me anymore.”

“Well, he sure was cordial enough to your parents.  And he smiled at you.”

“Oh!  That smile!  Yes!  He smiled at me!”


Back at home, I continued my thoughts.  What was he thinking?  What would this year be like between us?

I didn't have to wait long to find out.  The next day was Wednesday, which meant we had church that night.

I came in with my parents and we sat in our usual spot.  He came in and sat right behind us.  I had enough courage that time to turn around and speak to him, although I can't remember a lick of what either one of us said.

During the sermon, I have no idea now what the pastor was preaching about, but for some reason he mentioned a verse that was talking about dove's eyes.  Then he said, “I saw some people here tonight that were making dove's eyes at each other.”

When he said that, I glanced over my shoulder, and there it was.  That smile.  And dove's eyes.

He still liked me.

This was going to be a great year.
