Wonderstruck

Do you ever just see a beautiful stranger? Not just a stranger that looks nice, but a really beautiful stranger who just captures you with the way they look and the way they act and makes you think about them at 2 am. A beautiful stranger that leaves you wonder struck and makes you somehow want to see them again and be with them forever yet at the same time, make you want to stay away from them so they remain this mysterious beautiful person that's in the world that would never hurt you.
I should have gone with the latter.

Rose's point of view

I go into my room that night feeling dreadful for too many reasons. He's right. Anything he does will not be okay with me and I'll be angry with him and that's not because he's doing anything wrong, it's because I can't handle it. I log onto my computer, send him a friend request and while I'm waiting for him to hopefully accept it and accept the silent apology that goes with it, I look up Enchanted by Taylor Swift. I'm still shocked that he's a Taylor Swift fan and I wonder if he calls himself a Swiftie because I wouldn't be able to help but giggle a little if he did. 

There I was again tonight
Forcing laughter faking smiles
Same old tired lonely place
Walls of insincerity
Shifting eyes and vacancy
Vanished when I saw your face
All I can say is it was enchanting to meet you
Your eyes whispered 'have we met?'
Across the room your silhouette
Starts to make its way to me
The playful conversation starts
Counter all your quick remarks
Like passing notes in secrecy
And it was enchanting to meet you
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you
This night is sparkling, don't you let it go
I'm wonder struck blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew I was enchanted to meet you
The lingering question kept me up
2am who do you love? 
I wonder until I'm wide awake
Now I'm pacing back and forth, wishing you were at my door
I'd open up and you would say 'Hey, it was enchanting to meet you'
All I know is I was enchanted to meet you
This night is sparkling
Don't you let it go
I'm wonder struck blushing all the way home
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew
This night is flawless
Don't you let it go
I'm wonder struck dancing around all alone
I'll spend forever wondering if you knew I was enchanted to meet you
This is me praying that this was the very first page, not where the storyline ends
My thoughts will echo your name until I see you again
These are the words I have vowed as I was leaving too soon
I was enchanted to meet you
Please don't be in love with someone else
Please don't have somebody waiting on you

I can't help but beam. I feel a smile almost glowing on my face. He said he felt that way about me. I mean, I had to hear it through a popular country star but the point is that's how he feels about me and I realise now that that's how I feel about him. 

I click back onto Facebook to see that he has accepted my request but hasn't sent me anything. I can tell he's still angry but he's waiting for an opportunity not to be. I send him a message. 

I was enchanted to meet you too. 

It was risky. It was cheesy and cringey and not me, but for a moment I let myself get lost in this side of things that could be imaginary and is definitely dangerous and I send it because it's the truth. 

He sends one back.

Please don't have somebody waiting on you. 

I smile to myself and reply again. 

I can't think of a way to cleverly quote the song back to you. So I'll just say, I don't have anybody waiting on me.

He replies:

Other than me. 

That's when the fear of something so special just being in our minds takes over me again and I just reply with a smiley face and shut the computer down.
