She walked slowly into the room, not knowing where her eyes would go first. Thinking too much, not able to stop her mind thinking of thoughts she really needed to switch off for now.
She moved silently amongst the throng of people, listening to words, to sentences, to conversations about so many things, none of them interesting her, so she kept moving, her eyes darting from side to side, trying to blend into the room without anyone noticing that she in fact wanted to be anywhere but where she was.
She moved past the bar, and took a tall shiny glass of champagne and kept moving without pause. Then it happened, the one look, the one movement of the eye that changed the whole atmosphere of the room for her.
Was it possible? Was she dreaming? How could this vision possibly be real? She grabbed hold of her glass tightly, suddenly frightened that she would drop it, her hand trembling, her body tight and beginning to feel like it would fall beneath her.
She walked closer, observing a little more, trying to determine if in fact this incredible vision was for real. It was, it was what she had been thinking about, dreaming about, and wishing for when she entered the room in the first place, of course not realising that any of it was about to be found here, here in this place full of uninteresting people. But it was about to happen, she was about to come face to face, body to body with the “one”, the one she had struggled so long to find, she knew it, they hadn’t officially met yet, but she knew that it didn’t matter, they were meant to meet, meant to be here tonight, meant to have their eyes meet. She moved a little more briskly now, towards the end of the room, towards the “vision”, trying to work out in her mind how she was going to make this meeting official. Then she paused, turned her back and walked slowly backwards, knowing she would bump into them any minute, trying to be subtle, and then Wham!!! Laughing slightly inside herself, knowing how silly she was being, but loving it, and she turned around to greet the “one” knowing that her plan had worked………………………………..
