It’s an ugly ugly day out. Cold and pouring rain.
I drank too much coffee and I’m feeling on edge.
I get onto the subway platform in Union Square.
I just finished my daily round: Starbucks, Barnes and Noble. Whole foods.
I didn’t even really get past banter with anyone today. Not many attractive women and I’m not quite in the mood.
As walk the length of the subway platform, I see a cute girl.
Not in the mood.
I see another cute girl. Not in the mood to walk over to her.
Then I see this amazing hotty. Mediterranean look, olive skin, and a body to die for.
She walks past. I consider.
All I’m going to do is stand next to her, I decide.
I walk to the other end of the platform. By the time I get next to her, the train has already arrived.
It’s crowded and we both get on the train, nowhere near each other.
Doesn’t matter, I think to myself. All that matters is that I took the initiative. I put my feet in motion when I felt attraction.
The train arrives in Brooklyn and I get off my stop. She’s slightly in front of me.
Her low-cut blouse is teasing me, exciting me.
We step off the train and move with the crowd. I can tell she’s aware of my presence.
I decide I am going to do the bare minimum: stop her and tell her she’s really cute and then be on my way.
But there’s no good place to stop her. Crowds of people are moving like a wave.
I have to stop her before we get out into the rain, I think to myself.
Before the final set of stairs I pause, she’s now behind me. I wait for her.
I stop her and stutter a bit. “I know this is random, but I just had to tell you how cute you are.”
Her face lights up with a smile. I introduce myself. I banter a bit with her.
I ask her how her day is. She says she’s having a rough day.
She asks me how I am. I say something about my awesome weekend.
I invite her to have a drink with me.
We step out of the subway and into the driving rain, under my umbrella.
We find a bar and the adventure begins.
