She walked back from class. Her steps slow and clumsy. It was a warm and sunny summer day. She decided to walk through the other buildings and dorms to get to her own. Perhaps a glimpse of other people's lives is what she needed.
There wasn't much to see, until she stepped into the last dorm before her own. The minute she laid her foot into the lobby, she saw them in a distance. He was studying with his fiancée, and they both seemed peaceful and content. His hand on the back of her neck, stroking her hair gently, with his eyes focused on his text book.
Noticing movement, his eyes shot up from his book and met her own. She had a determined look, and suddenly, her steps were filled with confidence. She swayed, slowly; her eyes focused on the guy across the lobby.
He looked up again from his book, only to notice that her eyes were still fixated on him. Starting to feel a little curious and a little uncomfortable, he looked back at his book and tried to ignore the female walking towards him and his fiancée.
As she got closer, he decided to look up one last time in an attempt to understand what was happening. His eyes met hers. The corner of her lips barely curved up in a small hint of a smile. Her eyes seductfully locked onto his. That very moment, his fiancée looked up in time to catch this exchange.
As she walked out of the lobby and back out into the street, before the door shut behind her, she could hear the fiancée’s clumsy accusatory questions screamed behind her. She grinned and walked back to her dorm room, peaceful and content.
