Day 6, 2021


This boy I’ve been secretly admiring finally chatted me up.

I couldn’t contain my excitement. I let out the cat to my sister and she laughed, “ewu.”

I left the job I was doing to vibe to a conversation that might grow into an eventual relationship. I mean, I can’t be too hopeful, right?

Ask me why I never shot my shot? I’ve been taught a terrible lesson by my last relationship. Before the baba, my ex cork gun, I don run shoot am. Las las, it ended in absolutely premium tears and heartbreak and near depression for me.

So, when this current showed up on my timeline and I liked him, the cliche words rang in my ears every time I saw his picture or his post (he’s very intelligent! Ei!!), “once bitten, twice shy.”

I allowed myself to have patience and be hopeful that my presence would be noticed.

I commented on posts, reacted accordingly, reacted on pictures but never commented, etc. I even began to make absurd posts because I realized he loved them and that he always laughed as he dropped lengthy comments.

Conversation :

Crush: Hello, Kachi, good morning.

Half second later,
Me: Hi, Steven. Good morning.

Crush: ๐Ÿ˜Š Thank you. How are you doing?

Half second later,
Me: I’m fine, thank you. How are you, too?

Crush: Very well, thanks. You slept well?

Me: Certainly did.๐Ÿฅฐ Thanks for asking. And you, too?

Crush: Yes, I did.
I’ve been following you a while now and you are interesting.

My heart picked a rope and started skipping.
Me: Oh. Wellโ€ฆ I’m glad you find me interesting. Thank you.

Crush: Who wouldn’t? Come on. May I ask where you draw inspiration to write from?

Minutes later we were still talking about me and him. I felt so good. If he kept up with this, we’d certainly talk tomorrow. And maybe, if he liked me enough he’d ask me to be with him. I proceeded to allow my imagination wander, getting chills, feeling butterflies and making secret wishes.

Much later,
Crush: I wanna ask you something else. Can I, please?

Me feeling cozy and cute and gasping for breath that I lost from laughing too much,
Me: Sure, why not?

Crush: There’s this girl that follows you, too. She’s always in your comment section. Her name’s Angelica.

My heart stopped skipping, carried chair and sat down, picked a fan and activated fanning.

Me: Ohkayโ€ฆ?

Crush: Are you guys really cool.

My heart dropped fan and turned on the AC,
Me: You could say that, yes.

Crush: Lol. I don’t know the right way to go about this. Can I request for her WhatsApp number? I texted her on messenger for a while now but it seemed she’s not active there. I feel embarrassed to ask her in a comment section.

Me: Ohhhhkkkkayyyyy. The right way to go about it is out of my inbox. Bye bye.

Crush: Whoa, whoa, hold onโ€ฆ

Hold on where? On to what? I’ve just been shot in the chest.
