So, here I was storming to the parking lot: livid.
“How dare he?” I thought as I am angrily trying to find where did I park this car???
“How dare he make me wait? How dare he not even call to find out where was I? How dare he make me so uncomfortable..” etc, etc, etc. I had a few choice words for him!
I finally found my car, unlocked it, found the headphones, angrily grabbed it, slammed the door shut again and was making my way back until I thought,
“No, I am not going back. Forget him.” Stormed back to the car, angrily pulled the handle (ugh! its locked!), unlocked the car, got inside, slammed the door shut, started the engine, rolled down the windows and noticed that I had an unread text message. So, I turned the engine off and read the unread text. It was from a friend who I told about the meeting and where I’d be and what time I’d be there and such who texted to find out if I made it there ok. Great, a listening ear! So, I called the friend and went off. Told him everything that happened. He asked me where I was now and I told him in my car about to head off.
“Yes, I am sure!!!!!” 😐
“Ok, just calm down and drive back safely.”
So, I started the car again, backed out of the parking space, and was going to drive away until I was convicted that this is not right.
So, I started the car again, backed out of the parking space, and was going to drive away until I was convicted that this is not right. 😐 No. Not now conscious. Not now. Yes: now. Ugh! I cannot just skip off like that. If that was me and someone did that to me I would never speak to them again….ugh! Why must I have a soft heart?? So, I parked the car again, angrily grabbed my phone and headphones, slammed the door shut and walked back to the piano room.
Back at the piano room and was getting ready to open the door when I realized that Lawrence was playing a song. So, I just stood outside and listened to him play. I do not recall how long I stood there listening to him play but I did. Just stood and listened. That moment would be my forever stolen moment with Lawrence. There was just soomehing about watching him play that made me less angry…anyway.
When he finished I walked in and he was quite shock to see me!
When he finished I walked in and he was quite shock to see me! (Lawrence told me later on that when I left he had no expectations that I would return. So, when I did he was surprised!).I told him I really liked that song he was playing and he got all embarrassed realizing that I was outside the whole time listening to him! 🙂
“I got the headphones.” I said showing it to him.
“Its ok. Let’s try something something.”
“Something like what?”
“Ever wrote a song before?”
“Well, let’s write one now.”
So, turned out I did not even need the headphones after all! Lawrence stayed on the piano and we just fooled around with him playing songs and asking me to name them. Then, he played random melodies until we found “the one” to write a song too. Lawrence suggested we compose a love song together but we ended up writing a song about trusting in God. In between just teasing and having a good time, we managed to throw in a few serious conversations here and there. Overall, it was a really good day and when I checked my phone I realized that the sun was almost setting (!!) and that my friend blew up my phone trying to find out where was I?? (remember, I was suppose to leave home!)
So, I did my “Cinderella” act and told Lawrence its been real but I gotsa go!
This time, he walked me out and walking next to him I had a huge smile on face and how come not? I was walking next to this fine guy who I think I just fell in love with!! Got to my car and apologized to my friend letting him know I am on my way home…for real this time!
