Taken Aback- Part 4

To this day I still don't know if A.B. looked over his shoulder as he walked into the business building, I was much too determined to keep my eyes focused on the dorms ahead of me and now that it's been close to a year ago I find it hard to care.  I can't believe a whole year has passed since the two of us came in contact with each other; a lot has happened since then.  There is a large part of me that wishes I could travel back to the time when I typed out my first reply and yell at myself not to hit the seemingly innocent enter button.  The other part of me, the reasonable part, is so grateful that and blessed because of that one moment.

A.B. was in class and I was home in my apartment, laying on my bed exhausted, reviewing the awkward situation that had just happened.  Before meeting A, I had told myself that if he didn't like me one we met that it would be okay.  To me it seemed that A.B. didn't like me, and I definitely was not okay with it!  I had begun to like his personality and after seeing him in person I knew I was attracted to him.  But don't worry, I had just blown any opportunity that I might have had with him.

He must have been bored, or maybe I had made a better impression then I thought, but as my phone vibrated and I saw that it was from A.B. my spirits lifted.  He didn't say "it was good to meet you" or anything of that nature, but instead he commented on how boring his class was.  We chatted the night away  about silly unimportant things and there was no need to worry about the encounter earlier that day.

Not long after we met, maybe a couple days, A.B. randomly called me.  I answered the phone with a little hesitancy.  It was obvious that he was slightly out of his comfort zone but we managed some small talk and then he asked!  "Kelsey, are you doing anything this Saturday?"  Well I was planning on washing my hair, doing some homework and painting my nails.  Even if I had been doing something I would have gladly canceled my plans to go on a date with A.  I casually play things off not wanting to seem overeager but I gladly accept his offer.  A.B. and I will be going out on Saturday for ice cream!  I hang up the phone and all that I have left to do is patiently wait.
