Not the typical guy
John Stills was not the typical guy Jane would normally like
But there was something in John that drew her to him somehow
Every time she sees him, there’s a feeling of lightness, a sense of calmness
“Perhaps his smile?” asked Jane to herself in wonder.
The glancing and blushing
Not long after they first met they were invited to a common friend’s party
There Jane couldn’t help but notice John’s constant glancing at her while she was dancing with her friends
Her friends noticed it too and teased her till she blushed which heightened the teasing, the giggling, the laughing
Yet before the party ended, John finally mustered enough courage and asked for her number which she gladly and eagerly gave.
Hi! Hello! How are you?
The next couple of weeks became days of constant text messaging
“Hi!” “Hello!” “How are you?” were the common messages each would receive
Jane could not believe still that John might be also interested in something more than just being friends
And she got herself carried away by her daydreams of one day becoming Mrs. Stills.
The Sudden Change
But one day Jane had to fly home for some important matters that needed her attention
John promised her that when she gets back they will meet again and he will cook something for her
So Jane expected that John would keep in touch and would wait for her return
But a month had passed and John did not even text her to ask how she was.
So Jane wondered why John did not even care to ask how she was doing
She couldn’t think of a reason that might have made him be mad at her
“I couldn’t find any reason for his sudden silence,” sighed Jane while wondering what must have happened in her absence
And then one day Jane found out through a friend that John met a new girl named Janice, and he has been seeing her, so it seemed.
“Well, what else can I do?” asked Jane, “But to forget about John and move on.”
“I guess guys are just like that – they move on easily and forget quickly,” muttered Jane in dismay
“It’s such a shame though,” said Jane.
“It ended before it could even begin.”
