From across the road, our eyes met that summer.
We both took the same bus.
She took it to work and I took it back from work.
Our timings on and off the bus were the only thing that coincided.
That and our eyes which coincidentally met as she boarded & I got off.
It was a love which seemed star crossed.
She worked days, I worked nights.
Tentatively, one day I approached her.
“Er! Hey, care for a coffee?” I asked.
“Sure. Just for today or every day?” she answered.
And just like that our summer romance became real.
