Our eyes meet and it feels as if the world around us has faded away. All I can see are his beautiful eyes that completely pull me in and make me forget everything else. Something in me pulls me towards him, but I fight it this time. Those eyes are so familiar to me and I feel my heart start pounding violently in my chest.
It can't be him. There is no way it's him. He's just in my imagination. He's only in my dreams.
I hear my mom call my name so I tear my eyes away from this beautiful stranger. A part of me protests my actions but I ignore it.
"We're leaving now, honey. Did you make sure to grab everything you need?" I nod my head mutely and put the pack of assorted chocolate candies in the shopping cart.
"This is everything," I whisper, my throat feeling constricted. My mom nods before telling me to wait for her as she checks out. I take in deep breaths, but it still feels like something is blocking my throat.
I glance back at him one more time and see that he's still staring at me with his intense eyes. This time when I take in a deep breath, it works. I feel like I have never been able to breath better.
I swallow nervously before I quickly turn around and follow my mom to the check out lanes. I can still feel his stare against my back so I walk faster.
"Oh honey I was just coming to get you, we're done here," my mom says. I nod and we start walking towards the exit. I take a peek at him, but i make sure I don't stare into his mesmerizing eyes. I force myself to continue following my mom and I force myself to look away again.
