Love must be in the air because when I get back to the frat house, I notice that my roommate Josef has cleaned up his look a little and is actively flirting with a girl in the foyer. I wonder if she lives in the sorority house with Kim.
Kim catches up to me as I’m riding my bike back to the frat house. We race briefly until she beats me by quickly passing me. I don’t mind though, because: one, I find out that she lives in the sorority house up the road from the frat house and two, slow and steady may not have won me the race, but I’m still rewarded with a nice view as she speeds up ahead of me.
Kim and I chat for awhile before saying our goodbyes. As I turn to leave, she looks a little disappointed. I know she probably expects me to ask her out or at least exchange cell numbers with her…but something about that seems a little typical to me. No…if I want to pursue this girl, I have a feeling that I’m going to have to approach it in a very different and unexpected way.
Laurence: I’m so sorry…I didn’t mean to offend you. I…I just think you have pretty eyes…and …I don’t know…the artist in me just wanted to capture them on paper. I swear that it was an innocent question…I swear!
