The young man good looking and eloquent spoke of his mantra of love and relationships.
It seemed to her like a test ride.
She listened carefully but she had to wonder how it is about hearts, to peep in, stay and walk away, it must take a lot of heart, and cause a lot of hurt.
Perhaps it is a generational thing.
Perhaps it is just a defense, a mask, a put on.
Yet, she said, ‘I am sure there is someone for you. Being so eloquent, a man of words, young, ambitious and handsome to boot.

Then I saw her smile so positive and knew it is all just fine.
Maybe I am overthinking!, I chided myself.
