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.

I lie in bed that night on my side, looking over into Noah's cot. We share the room. There's no need, we have like three other bedrooms ready for the siblings of the future. I don't know why Noah couldn't sleep in there for now. My mum still checks on her at night so it's not so that that can be my job from now on. My mum says she wants us to bond. I don't mind, in fact I quite enjoy it, but how we'll bond from sleeping I'll never know. She's dreaming about pretty colours and lights and I'm probably going to dream about that boy from the castle.

That's what I thought anyway but I can't even sleep. Not just because of that boy, that would be really quite embarrassing, but just because I don't want to sleep. After thinking about whether my mother was planning another baby yet and about all the things I should be studying, my mind wanders to him. 

What is his name? That boy has a name and I want to know what it is because either it's something beautiful and exotic and cool which makes him 10X more attractive or it's something like Sid which really puts me off him all together. That boy might have a girlfriend. That makes me feel a bit intrusive. I shouldn't be at home thinking about somebody's boyfriend. I don't know why I'm so infatuated. There was just something about him.

I wander over and pick Noah up as she sleeps, bringing her back to my bed. I hold her, watching her little eyelids flutter. I love holding her. I don't know why, I just do. I'm pretty sure every woman loves to hold babies. Then again, I'm pretty sure everybody sees an attractive stranger in public, but not everyone sits and thinks about them.
