The sun was coming through between the buildings.
I could feel it touching my face.
We were sitting on the terrace.
The terrace was looking down a bit down at the street.
There was a man with his dog.
Talking to some other guy.
I overheard one of them speaking about some things.
They were both drinking some beers.
My friend and I were also talking about things.
However, we were drinking red wine.
We were expressing what we were feeling.
The tension of our hearts needed to be released.
The dog was walking around.
He even came to us.
I petted him and he decided to lay under my legs for a short while.
Until there was a pigeon that caught his eye.
The dog was still young and he had a lot of energy.
I couldn’t have guessed about it any other way.
‘What is his name?’
I asked the owner the name of the dog.
Just being respectful and friendly.
Not really sure it was ‘a him’, but nobody would get mad about it, if it turned out to be perhaps a she.
But these were the words that the owner of this dog spoke to me.
In the middle of a sentence he said something about his girlfriend.
From my perspective that wasn’t really friendly.
Since we were just talking and there was no reason to mention her.
Of course it could be that he wanted to make it clear that he was taken.
Although I was doubting it a little bit.
He spoke about her even twice.
But perhaps it was just my mind that was questioning what was happening.
All I could think of it.
That it wasn’t about him, being taken, or perhaps even being in a relationship.
Just that my vibes were probably saying ‘I am single’.
Although I wasn’t bothering him with it.
I don’t even think that was something he was feeling.
Of course a simple talk can lead to something more.
But then again, he isn’t that advanced, to understand all of this in the time we were talking, to gain that perspective.
Because, simply he was mentioning his girlfriend.
I don’t want to be too negative.
He even said goodbye when he left.
With his dog of course, perhaps even going to his girlfriend.
I am just honoring that conversation, or little small talk I had with him.
To understand that I am beautiful, that a guy feels the urge to something like this.
And of course, to get confirmation that I am also very single.
