His laughter rather than make her all the more embarrased, surprisingly calmed her. She didn’t exactly want him thinking she was mentally disturbed,, gosh. She didn’t want anyone thinking that. Good thing he took it for a joke.
The only problem now was that she needed to occupy herself with something and her drink was drained…
So, stricken by an unknown force that made her unable to get up from her seat, she couldn’t help looking at her glass and willing it to fill.
“can I buy you drink ”
“what ,” she replied..acting like she had not heard him. Mehn, I can’t have him thinking I’m desperate for another drink.
” I said, can I get you a drink? Maybe red …”
” are you planning to get me drunk and in bed with you? ” she interrupted.
Oh my gosh, she thought to herself… I was thinking aloud when she saw the expression on his face and actually put her head on the table covering it with both hands like it would make her invisible.
“I can still see you.” he said.
and because there was the trace of a smile in his voice, she looked up and said,
” I know. ”
” I’m sorry, I think a lot of things and most times, I’m thinking it aloud. ” she continued
He was quiet… Watching her. .
She couldn’t even look at him, all she wanted to do was disappear and since there was no magic way out, she had to do it the hard way. She picked up her purse and walked out of the bar and he didn’t even come after her or say a word.. Not that she wanted him to ….after all she wasn’t used to any that.
