An early May weekend, a Sunday, Sam messaged Erin, their first words posted (#1) – now continued on …
For us to have begun to share our thoughts and feelings means a lot to me. I can’t explain why we feel like this, can you? I’m just glad we do. Perhaps it is fate, its touch, a chance for us to… well, let’s see?
I have a good feeling about us too but, lovely as this is, let’s not go and get all carried away too soon. Can we just enjoy this moment and take things a little more slowly please?
Erin, you are something more than beautiful to me. You permeate my mind, you occupy my dreams. There is no speed control, no neutral – it’s just the way it is. I sense I could tell you everything of me and you tell me almost nothing in return, yet you’d draw me in, day-by-day, ever closer to you. Please tell me, however did I get to feel like this? I don’t know a thing about you.
Sam, I’ve never known a man who could express his feelings as you do – this really is a first for me. I certainly got more than I bargained for when I replied to you! Oh, and by the way, I don’t see how you can sense I’ll not tell you anything about me – you haven’t asked me anything. What’s a girl to do?
Hello, Erin, I guess I’ve been holding back a bit. I didn’t want to seem too pushy. Yes, I’d like to get to know you, who you are, what you do, what makes you tick, if that’s okay with you? As for me, Sam is my given name. I’ve just turned fifty and I’m single, but I haven’t always been. I feel like a thirty-year-old in my head but, as for the rest of me, I try to keep in shape with a run, a swim and yoga a few days a week. I’m a scientist, and work where and when I’m needed, usually abroad. I’ll be in Brussels next week for a few days, but I should be back by the weekend.
Of course you can get to know me. I like that you want to so it’s very okay. You now intrigue me even more. You look much younger and I can see you’re in good shape. Your job sounds important – it must be exciting jetting off to work. I’m not as clever as you obviously are – I do admin for a charity and the most I get to travel is in to London every day. I’m free and single and will be out with the girls next weekend to celebrate my birthday!
