Livin Room '02
I was with my then best friend and a hanger on. We had spent the afternoon/evening in our local cocktail bar and decided to head off up the road for a dance.
At the bar my friend got talking to this guy who was with a group of mates and his grilfriend. I thought it was a bit weird the amount of attention he was paying us, despite his girlfriend standing there looking a little lost and bored. He seemed sweet, we joined their party and spent the evening together having a giggle.
Halfway through the night my friend and he went to the bar downstairs and we later found them sitting on the sofas, my friend smiling but crying at the same time. I ran over to her and asked if she was ok, she said she had never been happier before in her life and looked more relaxed than I had ever seen her. She went to the toilets and I sat in her seat. The man started talking to me.
He asked me about my uni course and everything and said he could tell I was creative. Then he held my hand (hate it when strangers touch me) and looked me in the eye. He lowered his voice and told me stuff about myself I had never shared with anyone else. The strange this is though, it made me feel relieved. I ended up crying as well, no idea why. Then he told me the one thing I needed to hear, the one thing that I knew that could make me happier but had been too scared to do.
