The Stolen Thunder

with 17 comments

Their eyes met. She was smiling.
He had put on weight and was low on confidence. He passed a smile, hoping.
It went unnoticed but her gaze was steady. Perplexed, he looked intently, following her line of sight.

He turned.


The nation’s latest heartthrob adorned the wall behind him.

He felt his thunder being stolen.

  8. (Job still sucks and my creativity and originality has gone for a hike so stealing yours 🙂 )

    Our eyes met. I frowned.
    I had put on weight and was low on confidence. I hoped he would ignore me.
    I sighed and slowly lowered my head only to find a pair of red converse in my line of sight.
    I looked up.
    The crazy calm in his eyes abated thunder in mine.

    • Stupendous!
      And this is no stealing. It is just inspiration. Ain’t it? 🙂

  9. Happens sometime with me. I never see whose around me. It might just be possible that she psyched out 😉 and was not noticing the heart throb?
