Prompt: Tonight

At First Sight

You will fall in love tonight. She will (he will) sit down two barstools down. She (he) will be one drink soberer than you, though you won’t be all that intoxicated yourself. She (he) will order a drink and sip it distractedly. She (he) will seem to be waiting for friends. Maybe you’ll even try to start a conversation, though you may well be unable to get up the confidence. If you do, she’ll (he’ll) be perfectly pleasant, but totally unresponsive. Eventually she (he) will head off with her (his) friends.

And tomorrow night you will fall in love again.
