Playing Games - Chapter 1


"Oh Boy!  "Who's that?"




           "HELLO! "WHO'S HE?"

 The first time I met him was when I walked into work and even though our eyes didn’t meet, something had told me how was this tall, dark hair, mysterious stranger was going to start something off in my crazy life?  But how!  All I do know was when I had walked into work that day and noticed this guy, leaning against a table with his arms folded looking like he was in a world of his own, while Deek, who was the Manager was at the till.  

 Who I secretly thought a times, that he looked a bit like that Actor, "Ardal O' Halon," when he only played the character of "Father Dougal McGuire" from that old hit, comedy series of "Father Ted," but who was slightly shorter, with brownish hair, showing some pozy, tall, but ever so plain, lanky girl something on the till, while I still couldn't help myself, from noticing that guy, from the corner of my eye, that was learning against that big table, near to the entrance and wondering, 'oh, he seems really nice' to myself.  

 But saying that, well, only time will tell!  "Oh yes!  "Only, time will tell, if that guy was going to be nice or not!  As for myself, well, being a shy person as I am, wouldn't have thought, for one moment then, that anyone like him, would bring my shyness above the surface, like I was when I was must younger.  Because of wondering when I looked at him, he's nice!  But, still who couldn’t seem to bring myself to go up to them, let alone speak to them.  

 Though, while coming back out from where I had got myself already for my shift, was told by our Deputy Manager, "that we’ve now have two new people starting today," "the one, with Deek, is called Liz, the other, is Matt."  For whom, must have been him, that I noticed leaning against that table, with arms still folded and looking slightly down, because as there weren't anyone else around, when I came wondering back out, from our staff-room with Fazz, who was the Deputy Manager, back then!

 Only, if you must know seeing him as I did, had told yours truly, not to look at him even after I went up to this new girl Liz, so that I could introduce myself to her, just still couldn’t exactly look up at him.  Not to mention, as I was walking past him so I could make way towards the fitting-rooms, had still told myself not to turn and look at this guy.  But who which, had definitely brought a slight smile upon this girls face for sure while I was hiding myself around the corner of the fitting-room.  As it was only then, that I only decided to look at him, because of knowing no one could see me!  Which, once again, that was how I met this so-call mysterious person, who I had wondered even after knowing he was going to be a member of us, that was he going to start something off in my so-call crazy life?  

 Because, for one!  It was him that truly brought this girl smile right back, since her Manager had got stitch up, right good and proper, by those, who was in change above of the place.  Which of course, meant, it was only him, that each time he made me laugh and smile at the same time, but who I didn’t realise then, that I would also, end up falling, madly in love.  And even though, we did seem to get along like just good friends do, from when he started, didn't take that long, for all to sort of make me feel, that they were now starting to be a bit a bit funny with me, as in not like, ha-ha!  But, how they all seem to joined in together-like, as like a bunch of flaming Barstards trying to make it harder for me for not to be friend with Matt.  

 Especially, shortly after Fazz had decided to leave us, made me wonder that maybe, it was best for all, that me and Matt just won’t be able to be friend’s.  Not because I wanted to,  "No!  But, how they truly made it harder for me to continue of trying to be friend with him.  Only, all this, as I said, didn’t really happen until, Fazz had decide to leave, because what I can vaguely remember, was just before he had, well what I noticed was Matt had still showed signs of his funny sense of humour around me.  

Which, got to admit, was so nice to see, as well as, he had seemed to act like he really cared of what I thought, of him for maybe, wanting to go for Fazzs' job, as a Deputy Manager!   Because, all he kept on asking me was, “would you mind so much Sandy, if I went for Fazzs' job?"  Over and over again!

 And even though, that was then, and this is now, after it’s only been now, what sixteen years, since Matt had left, but which, now I’m no longer working there myself, due to the place had closed down in January 2012, which makes it roughly, for me, fifteen years, that those feelings that I was starting to experience over Matt, as still not changed one bit.  Which, of course meant, discovering then, that I really had ended up loving him so much! 

 Probably even more so now, then ever before, because what I liked about him, in the first place, was how he had first acted all stupid-like first, while he was around me, then it was around the others!  As well as making thought he could have been slightly shy.  But sadly again for me, at the same time, how he had always singled me out, as well as, no matter how he treated me at times, just still couldn’t help myself from liking him even more, because of those times that he really made me laugh, which was really nice!
