Their Days: Sam & Erin’s Story #1

This is the first post of the revised and edited version of ‘Believing Sight Unseen: Their Days’ – written in message scenes, replacing previous posts in narrative/message format.

Early May

 

Sunday

Sam:

Sites like this are not my thing, yet somehow your photo appeared to me. By chance, by fate, I wouldn’t know. All I know is that as I go about my daily life my thoughts keep coming back to you. What can I say, other than you’ve captivated me – I just had to sign up, just had to say hello. I’m Sam and spellbound by your smile.

Erin:

Oh my goodness, do you really mean that? I’m Erin, by the way.

Sam:

Hello, Erin, l can’t quite believe you got in touch. I’ve not done anything like this before so I’ll just be me and write the way I feel. Is that alright with you?

Erin:

I like the way you write – it’s refreshing to chat to a guy who seems interested in me. Most men on here are only interested in one thing!

Sam:

There must be plenty of men who’ve been awed by your looks, your sensuality, your charms. I can’t imagine you ever having to try too hard, or being alone. You being here at all I just can’t think why. You’ll have your reasons, and I’ll not pry.

Erin:

I find that a lot of guys who would like to be with me are far too immature. I’ve always been attracted to the more intelligent male and I like older guys too as I feel I’m treated much better by them, though there are always exceptions to the rules. What about you?

Sam:

For me intelligence and looks only go so far, it’s who and how you are that really matters. You have something, you intrigue me, and if you don’t mind me saying, it sounds as if you’ve been let down a time or two? Men say they cannot help but be what they are, though some do try to be as women want, but I’ll not deny it isn’t always easy! Sorry, I’m probably talking too much?

Erin:

No, not at all. I don’t think you talk too much. I like reading what you have to say. It’s all so real and insightful, I feel as if I’m connecting with you and I’m enjoying it.

 

Monday

Sam:

I wonder how many lives your smile will light up today, how many pulses you will raise.  How many will stumble for words on speaking to you, asking how you are, how your evening was, wishing they had been with you. I’m smiling now, thinking all these things too.

Erin:

You have made me smile that’s for sure – I wish I could be that infectious!

Sam:

You’ll think this a strange thing for me to say, but I feel your presence. Where my thoughts go you go too – us walking bare foot in the grass, our feet anointed by the sea as we stroll along a beach, hands held beneath a sky of blue… I know, I know, too much, too soon… to think of you like this.

Erin:

You know how to give me butterflies, don’t you? I enjoy your thoughts – I have the same sorts of things running through my mind too, though I don’t have the words to capture them as you do.

    1. Hi – yes, this is how ‘Sam & Erin’s’ story starts and will continue here for a while. The ‘His & Hers Raw Lines posts were random, some from this story …. and some from what will be a more edgy ‘Sean & Ellie’ story which I’ll start posting from the start in a week or two. I’ve just got to make sure I keep the two story lines separate!

  1. Wonderful and familiar all the same! How do we get past the superficial and trust that the human on the other end of a site is real and authentic and looking for meaningful connections. Thank you for sharing this today at the GDG. – Stephen

          1. Self publish e-book and POD paperback – I’ve been working with an excellent free-lance editor for a while now and just about to start inquires for a professional book cover. More background info can be found via the ‘Believing Sight Unseen’ link at the start of this post.
