She is a young girl, its the happiest day of her life, no not the day she marries, she is much too young for that, its the day she realizes that she has fallen for that young man, she realizes that maybe, just maybe her attention might be reciprocated.
She met him for the first time few weeks back, just a normal young man, full of hopes and dreams, he seemed interesting, with a head that had lots to pour out, their first discussion, though virtual, she laughs to herself, yes they have only communicated virtually, the met in the small world of twitter, now their daily conversations are via blackberry, that first convo stretched out into the night, they talked about all and sundry, made sense of each other lives, and tried to learn as much as they could, she didn't really feel the crush then, he just seemed to her as another person, another friend, someother person that can impact her life as she matured into a woman, it wasn't until, they started talking indepth, into their hopes and dreams that she realized, she was crushing on him,- she laughs to herself again- crushing, haven't felt that since secondary school, that sudden rush of only one person to her brain, the constant thought, constant fluttering heartbeats, smiles that creep up into her lips, when she realizes that its him she wants to talk to, looking up his tweets on twitter, envy when he flirts with another, she smiles to herself, that's when she knows she is crushing, good thing is that, when it isn't nurtured, a crush can die pretty fast, she doesn't think she wants it too though, maybe she should tell him.
So during the nights chat! She let's it slip, sweetheart ( flirting on messenger is constant) I think I'm crushing on you, as she says it her heart elevates, hoping that it won't come crashing down, expectant, and she gets a reply...................
He goes "looooooooool"
Thump! Thump! Her heart drops, the smile slides away just as slowly as it crept up, She realizes her mistake, it is twitter, she met him on twitter, it is not that serious!!
