Playing Games - Chapter 19

 

 



  Chapter 19


                                                             THE TIME

                                       

                                        I WORE A BLACK AND WHITE 

                              DRESS, PLUS THE SMALL BLACK BOOTS

                                                     ON MY DAY OFF


 And then there was this one Saturday when I had the day off, but which was still while all those lot that was giving me so much grief by playing with my feelings over Matt so I would end up really liking him more and even more then I had, were all still there.  And like always, I went out on that day then stopping in.  So while going in and out of shops too just see what’s, what, but who had also decided at the time to nip round to see my friends at Wacky’s, well as I was approaching their shop well who should I see outside talking to  Lynette who if I haven’t said already, was the Manager of that shop, but Deek, my Manager.  As he was talking away to Lynette over something, but which, I had thought then, instead of ignoring them both, nodded first, then, who went strolling in to say, “hello,” to Roxie, who was yet, another friend of mine from that shop, leaving, Lynette and Deek, as they were, outside her shop. 

 Now, as it was such a really lovely day on that day, that I decided to wear a dress, a Black and White dress, which was unusual for me to wear, since I normally wore a top with leggings.  Because, before I had popped in and Deek saw me approaching them both, from a far, but, who came more and closer and closer towards them, well lets just say, shortly after I said, “hello,” by nodding slightly to them, that, Deek stopped talking to Lynette for the moment and shouted over to Matt, who could have been near to the till serving?  “Who knows there?  Because all Deek had shouted over to Matt, was,  “Matt, don’t forget to do what I told you to do?"  While at the same time, had glanced over slightly towards me, with a smile upon his face.  So, really what I’m leading to this!  Did Deek truly try to get Matt’s attention, of reminding him to do something for him?  Or not?   

 As for myself though, well, I could only think at the time, that I couldn't turn around, because something just told me to hide myself away from Matt’s sight, before he could ever seen me properly, with his big Brown eyes and if he was then, well, giving me a nice smile.  But who knows now, as I didn't back then.  So, before I had thought Matt could have seen me, dashed straight into Lynette's shop, to say, “hello,” to Roxie, only while talking away to her and having a little laugh, what I didn’t really expect to notice was, shortly after Deek went straight back to work, had and thought, Lynette had looked like she was carrying on with her work, that who should I see hanging around her?  But Matt!  

 Only, from where I was standing now, still trying to chat to Roxie, couldn’t help myself from noticing that where Lynette was trying to sort out the price codes to some items at the front that there was Matt on the other side of her, talking away, with his head bent slightly,  to Lynette.  But, had he?  Because, the way he had looked, was simply like, being in a little world of his own, while he was just  trying to gazed around, but who, at the same time, tried not to look in my direction, while I was still laughing with Roxie.  But who knows on that score! 

All I do know is that’s how it looked to me when I had finally decided to go and said my “byes,” to Roxie and Lynette not forgetting Matt, as I gave him a little nod to indicate bye Matt, followed by with a little smile.  Because as it was Matt well while I was smiling at him just couldn’t help myself from looking down like as if  he’s already made me feel I was going shy in myself.  Only, all this was because of noticing Matt was giving me one of those lovely looks of his which made me think that it could have been that he was around there.  And even though that was just my wishful thinking to think he could have only been hanging around there because of me well really that was how it looked.
