This is Dream Date number 14.
I have been dancing so hard that my clothes are wet. I think of a German friend of mine who, whenever we go out dancing together, makes me wait until I’ve dried off before he’ll let me go home. In case I get sick. So I sit down on one of the couches they have in the bar and I text him, saying “Hey. I thought you’d want to know, I’m out dancing and I’m totally wet but I’m waiting until I get dry before I go home. You should be proud of me.” And he must be awake because straight away he texts back “I am so proud of you sweetie. Have a good night.”
Something makes me look up from my phone and I see that you’re looking at me. You’re sitting at the other end of the couch. I hadn’t noticed you before. Now I notice you. You look nice. I smile at you, which is a thing I never do. I never smile at people in clubs. Sometimes I look at people for too long and they turn away and I wonder if maybe my eye make-up is too much but I never smile at people. But I smile at you. And you smile back. You say something that I don’t catch over the music so I lean towards you and say: “I’m just drying off for a sec before I go home. I’m really sweaty.” And you say: “Do you wanna spoon, though?”
I think about that for a moment. I say: “Ha. That would be so cool. I would love that. Imagine if there was a place here where you could spoon. So, when you’re done with dancing, you could just spoon. That would be so great!” You say: “What do you mean?” I say: “If they had beds here or something. We could all just spoon. It would be so great. Why don’t they do that? They should put in beds so that we can spoon!” You look at me. You say: “But do you wanna spoon?”
I say: “Wait. Are you asking me if I want to spoon? Like… now? Like… with you?” And you say: “Yeah. Do you wanna… go somewhere and spoon?”
I say: “We could… go to my place if you want. We could… I mean… we could spoon there… if you really want to.” You say: “Are you sure?” I say: “Yeah.”
You say: “I’ll just tell my friends.”
I say: “I’m gonna get my bike. I’ll meet you outside.”
