Just so that you know…

… that I was glad to meet you again, less than 24 hours after our first movie date last night.

I didn’t mind the least the pricey dinner over at your work place. I’m elated to see your glowing smile when your colleagues teased you, presumably over me. You seem to enjoy the attention, the joke. You introduce your friends to me enthusiastically.

I love being the one you show to your friends as your date.

“I’m sure they will ask me who you are when I next come to work”

“So, what are you going to tell them?”

“Nah, I am not going to tell them anything”

“Oh…”

“Can I tell them you are my date?”

“Would you?”

As we leave the restaurant, I smiled goodbye, you waved farewell.

Then we went to the movie, and somehow you mood turned sullen. And I have no idea why.

Did I spend too long waiting for my coffee? Were you just tired after a long day? Was it my teasings and flirtings made you uncomfortable?

Was it just me or do I sense your reluctance when I hold you hand in the cinema? Your apparent yawn and rush to catch the train?

And why you suddenly dropped subtle hints that you want to go home with me, when I know fully well you are going to your friend’s place? Pre-arranged, I was told, at 3 p.m. today.

Jealous, I was. Nah, just a natural reaction. I am not fussy over such things. But I am confused. Mixed signals? Uncharted expectations? Moving too fast?

I shouldn’t judge. Afterall, it is only the second date. And my fascination of you remains.
