“Just do it,” she suggested.
She was in the canteen and I’d apologised for rushing off earlier - as good an ice-breaker as any I supposed. I also decided to drop the cool image (as if I had one), and say
“I felt a bit shy. You took me by surprise and - you’re very pretty - and - well I’m not usually shy (I lied) but yeah, sorry I rushed off.”
She’d laughed: “that’s ok, I wasn’t offended.” Then we discussed lectures and music and poetry and
“Do it!” she said suddenly. “Go up the mountain and read poetry. Just do it.”

    Thanks Christopher - yes, based on true, but embroidered a bit. Haha, in other words a load of rubbish ;) I reckon there'll be six or eight of them, but you know how these things expand! :)
