Chapter 30 – Blind Date #8

Day 46



Gosh, I’m looking good.

Damn girl!

Feminine, youngish,

Oh, baby I’ve got it!

Attitude. Wit.

My makeup just right, the perfect outfit.


Self-confidence, style, my smile.

Leather boots, joy,

“Well, moi!”


“Moi, Anna!”

Uhh, not bad. Score!

Blind Riku is a sight for eyes sore.


But yay a little chubby.

So cuddly!

New smart shirt, nice smart mind.

And kind.


He eats a huge plate, I just have a salad.

We talk non-stop.

But it’s slow. Slow fella.

It’s way too serious.

There’s no chemistry.

He’s just another Finn-mystery.


He asks why somebody like me is divorced.

“We just grew apart.

It’s sad.

Good guy, but a marriage turned bad.

He’s moved on, I will, too.

And what about you?”


“Out of a long relationship, me.

She was too active,

I just stay home.

Can’t do sports with my eye,

Nor drive.

Enjoying a quiet time.”


“I see.

Well, maybe you’re not for me,




“But company would be good.

Real love. Understood?

Maybe a few kids

To refill my home with bliss.”




“It’s early, but late for me.


To catch my train and sleep deep.

Here’s a nice hug and I’ll pay.

May I see you again, bae?”


“Well, in that case…

You’ll have to write more!

I know I just do

Require it to soar!”


Ten days go by, Riku sends a hi.

That’s way too odd!

“All the b💘st!”   I respond.

I just sigh.

I’d die. I cry, “By😘!”

Obs. Day 46 after moving out. 



Author: TinderellaAnna

Anna is a character. Half-fictional, half-inspired in many, many true events. Half-European, half-Latin-American. She is happy, she is strong, she is a mom, a teacher, a friend. Despite the divorce - not of her choice - she is determined to be joyful, grateful, hopeful, sweet; believing that life is for sharing and that he is somewhere out there. But he will have to be as lovable as she is. After all, better alone than in bad company. Sigh: but better in good company than alone...
