“40 minutes on the subway! 40 minutes hoping he’d notice me… Why now!! Why does he look up at me when I’m literally about to step off the train! Urgh… And now I’ll probably never see him again!…. mmm, If I stay on for one more stop, would I seem weird?…Probably… If I ask for his number, would I seem too easy?…. Urgh… Why do all the cute guys always seem so busy or lost in their thoughts…or… reading… Urgh, damn that book! I should get off… But I really don’t want to!”
