“ Café late please” I said as I stared wide-eyed on to the ‘menu board’ hung behind the counter. “sure…would you like some sugar with that?” the coffee man asked, “yes…..please” I replied as I gave off my best smile, whilst thinking of other things. Something had caught my attention as I walked into coffee shop, a man and a woman talking so gracefully with one another. I couldn’t stop but wonder if they have always been together or if they had just gotten to be with one another. The way they looked at the other was interestingly different, as though they shared a secret, something in which was never told to anyone but themselves. As the coffee man handed me over my cafe late I thanked him graciously and walked back outside to where these 2 couples were seated and placed my self very gracefully on the table across from them. I placed the coffee on to the table, opened up my bag, got my pack of cigarettes out and placed them neatly next to the ashtray. Now I was ready to ponder my thoughts, with the tender taste of the coffee at my finger tips.
I looked across to the table I masterfully placed my self next to. A desire to see them together for just one more time, just once to give me the fulfillment I needed to believe that such love really did exist. I noticed that they were seated with 2 other people, another couple, and the difference between the two was very noticeable, as a result of that coincidence, my couple stood out even more. Looking up I come to notice that the female member of MY couple stood up to leave the coffee shop. My heart sinks, the thought of them leaving gave me a sense of despair, incapable of thinking of what I should do next, dumbfounded I stare at them with no shame. To my great surprise, the female just walks off and the male stays, and as I stare to no avail I notice a glimmer in his eyes, and I follow his stare to notice that he is carefully eyeing the female, as though she were a new love, a woman like no other, the savior of his humanity. I shy away immediately, cause I no nothing of what Is going on, or understand this kind of emotion, yet I am swept away by the grandness of it all. I fumble deliriously with my cigarette pack as I try to get one out. “I just need a smoke” I thought to myself. I sip my coffee slowly as I inhale a long deep breath of my life saving cigarette.
Thinking about it again and again, I wonder if I should go up and just tell them a couple of words, just anything to have the pleasure of interacting with these two magnificent creatures. My phone rings and brings me back to the harsh reality that I live in, I am late, and I have to rush, I need to leave, and yet I wait and ponder what I will tell those great couple. Then a miracle happens, a complete and marvelous act of GOD (swt), the couple sitting with them get off the table, bid them farewell and just leave. This was my chance, there was no other chance, I had to leave too, I had to get on my way, back to my life. And so I did the great leap. I placed my cigarettes in my bag, put the bag on my shoulder and headed towards them. “Hi….” I said shyly to the great couple, “I’m so sorry to interrupt, I really don’t mean to invade your privacy. But I just wanted to tell you both that I think you guys are the perfect example of soul mates” I blurted out, worried that they would turn on me, ask me to leave, be rude, anything to make me feel like I am not worthy of entering into their world. “Yes, we are” the female answered back, with a joyous smile on her face. “People always ask us that, and we always say yes. We think people need to feel like love is still real and that it does exist. ” she looks at me softly as she speaks those words to me, yet there is a sense of intelligence beyond my comprehension behind those words. I couldn’t help the next thing that came out of my mouth, staring at the two of them and looking at how the man was still smiling at his female, i perused my next statement “I love the way he looks at you, I love how he follows you with his eyes, he gives off a sense of utter love for you”. He looks at me with a knowing smile “I have been accused of that before” he starts to laugh, and gives his female a tender touch of their hands. I stare at them, with a plastered smile on my face, not knowing what to say or do. And to my surprise, my next question popped up without my control “so …..how did you guys meet?” “what is your love story?” I was going mad to know, there was nothing more than when my whole body vibrates and my heart sings to me and tells me ……They are soulmates….alert alert……
In the mean time, i would recommend you to hear the same songs i was listening to at the time while also reading the books i was devouring and the movies i watched.
Amazing: the Mixes (the love of my life George Micheal, and therefor he has to be on this list cause i lived for his words)
Middlesex: A Novel (Oprah’s Book Club)
The Virgin Suicides: A Novel
The Lovely Bones
Life of Pi: Deluxe Illustrated Edition
DVD – movies:
Kill Bill – Volume One ( this movie killed me with disgust)
Kill Bill – Volume Two (strangely enough i could not stop watching part 2 of it?!)
The Notebook (Limited Edition Gift Set) (I can’t even begin to explain how this movie moved me, let alone with Maggy and George story being told to me in real life)
13 Going on 30 (Fun & Flirty Edition) (Very light movie and lots of insights to it)
Love Actually (Full Screen Edition) (Now what a movie, so many love stories happening at the same time, i watched in on several occasions throughtout the years to take a deeper look at all the different events taking place.)
50 First Dates (Widescreen Special Edition) (Now this movie also came at the perfect time during the Maggy and George phase, it should how people have the ability to tolerate one another if they truly belong together and want to be with one another lovingly)
I think on the need to know basis, i am totally hooked on to movies, music and books….if not for those 3 things i would have not known what to do with my time and how to relate all those things as messages to my life.
To be continued…..part 2 Two People i met in Montreal
