Amanda watched the clock tick, tick-tock, tick tock… She sighed. It was such a beautiful day and such a beautiful weather but her heart was very lonely still.
She missed being in-love, she missed the passion, she missed the desire of being wanted, she missed caring for someone, being there for someone, she missed him so badly:”The One” who was yet to come… She desired him so desperately… She sighed and asked herself; When was it going to be midnight ,so her luck would change… Tick-tock, Tick -tock..
Joshua looked out the window… His friends had always told him ,he was a hopeless romantic.. He believed that there was one person for everyone.. The One… He believed in fate, in destiny, he believed the stars would be aligned someday and he would meet her… He figured it would be on a full moon day.. He wondered if he was such a dreamer.. Life had been cruel to him… Why couldn’t he find love? Why was it so difficult for him to be happy, for him to care for someone, to adore someone, to pamper someone… He wondered and pondered… He looked at the clock and sighed..it was still early, why wont time just go quickly, he starred at the clock…Tick-tock,Tick-tock
Mary was looking for something casual because she did not have time to date.. She was a workaholic and she lived so far away from eligible men, so her friends would always say. Her colleagues described her as sweet but yet she could not find love. She would often smile and tell them, she was married to her work that’s why she was single and was certainly in no rush. She was only going to marry for love and in any case, most men she had met didn’t possess the qualities she was looking for. She pondered sometimes about what men really wanted from women, she was lost to what it was.. She needed a modern man who just loved her as he loved himself, was successful and was a great conversationalist . There were too many boring men out there who only talked about sports. She was a hopeless romantic but most times the men she had dated didn’t have time to discover that and ran away from her because she couldn’t give them the attention required. Her tiny secret ,was she was a virgin at 30 and was not going to give it away, just like that, plus she had heard men today expected women to know everything in bed: It was such a hassle! So for now ,Mary was content being married to her work until Dumo came along.
Dumo had been exchanging work emails with Mary and wondered how she looked. He didn’t know why he was so drawn to the person he was corresponding with but each time they exchanged emails, he just smiled. He also was simply drawn to her name. She seemed like an enigma and he always loved a challenge. He was looking to settle down with someone extraordinary. He did not want a woman who would sit at home. He needed a match intellectually; he wanted to be stimulated by her mind not just by her looks. He always believed that love was something that would grow and was willing to be patient for the right one.
Walking in Mary’s office Dumo’ s heart was racing. He just hoped that once he saw her, he would know. However, Mary was not in the right mood for her prince charming ; she was on the phone, engrossed with texting her mum and Dumo walked in and smiled because she wouldn’t even raise her head to acknowledge him and when she did, Mary wondered what he was smiling about but noticed he was dangerously handsome and looked great in the suit. She gladly stood up and introduced herself…
