Over the past few months I had anticipated this very moment. I imagined seeing him, not being able to form a sentence, let alone a single word…wondering if he would walk up to me or would I approach him. Would he look the same? Who would he be with…what if he’s with her? I came back to the present as we pulled into the parking lot. I immediately felt like I was going to pass out. I took a deep breath and put my hands over my face. I hadn’t even noticed that Blair had got out of the car and walked around to my side, she opened the door and held out her hands. I took her hands into mine and stood up, I could do this. Blair smacked me on the butt and we started our walk towards the bar. I turned around and looked at Blair, gosh what would i do without her, she smiled at me and caught up and grabbed my hand. I gripped it hard and was not letting go. We opened the door to Lou’s (probably the most popular bar in our little town) and I immediately started scanning and….nothing. He wasnt there. I couldn’t believe it, oh thank goodness. I let out a huge sigh of relief followed by an excited eek! Blair laughed at me and led me by the hand to two empty bar stools. One drink led to two and two led to three, we were having a blast catching up with all of our old classmates.
“Well, time to break the seal,” I said to Blair as I rose from stool.
“Right behind you, sister.” Blair said as she got up to follow me.
I was rounding the corner towards the bathroom when I froze. Blair slammed into the back of me almost knocking me over.
There he was.
Our eyes met, and he smiled at me. I stood there frozen. He started walking towards me and before I knew it he was less than a foot away from me. I could feel his breath on me and everything around me was muffled. I just stood there staring at him, or not even really at him just in his direction, I wasnt even sure that this was really happening. My daze was interrupted by Blair jumping in between us. Blair’s back was to me and she was screaming at him. I took a step back unsure of what to do. Blair’s reaction was so unexpected.
