She chased it down the road. She wasn't paying so much attention to what was going on around her, but just held on to her things, while she ran.
All of a sudden she felt something, grab her arm, and pull her away from the road. She got a glimpse of a car, that rushed by, where she had just been seconds ago. She stopped and looked for a moment, a bit stunned. Then she noticed the hand letting go of her arm, and turned her head to look at a young fellow, with a worried look on his face. He was really pretty, and had this soft dark hair. At least it looked soft. It was a bit wet from the rain.
"Are you okay?" He asked her. She found herself blinking, in order to wake up. "Uhm, uhm.." She stuttered, a bit insecure. Then she shook her head and looked at him. "Yes, of course." She added. He sighed and looked kinda relieved. "Good." It was a little silent. "What happened?" He asked. She took a small step further in to the sidewalk. She wanted to get a little away from the road. She saw her umbrella and picked it up, then looked at him again. "My umbrella. It flew out of my hands." He looked very serious and listened to her. Then he nodded. "Well, you should be more careful in the future." Then he smiled. An unbelievably cute and charming smile. Friendly. She couldn't help, but smile too. "I will, and thank you very much. I would probably have gotten hit by that car, if you weren't there."
"Yes, that would've been a shame." He said. She took a small look around, and wondered if she should call her parents. They'd probably and most likely, go nuts. She turned her attention to him again, when he asked about her name. She smiled kindly at him. "My name is Vanessa. Vanessa Lawliett." He repeated the name to himself, before he told her his own. "Nice to meet you Miss Lawliett, my name is Damon Woods." She wondered a bit, why he called her 'Miss Lawliett'. "You can call me Vanessa." She said, with a slightly confused look on her face. "Well, I didn't know if we were on a first-name basis, but okay Vanessa."
They stood there for a while, which was nice. But then she remembered, that she had to call her parents. "Thank you again, Damon. But I have to go now. Maybe we'll meet some other time." He said okay, and let her go. She could feel him staring at her for a while, before he turned around and walked away. She took her phone out of her pocket and called her mother. "Hey mom. There was a minor accident, but I'm on my way home... no...mom, calm down. Nothing happened.. yes... cya later, bye!" She hung up and sighed. She knew how they'd react. In fact, she wouldn't be surprised if her mom had already briefed her father on the case.
