An Angels Touch
Where do I start? We all come from different backgrounds and everyone has a different story to tell. Well, mine is just another story but to me it holds a special place in my heart. I firmly believe that one person came into my life and left a bright shiny light in my heart that will never burn out. She is truly an angel
It was Oct. 2002, about a year after the Sept 11 attacks on America. I was 18 years old. I was a wild one and most often was out and about smoking weed or finding myself getting into some sort of trouble. After high school, I attended the University of Akron and failed just about every class, so I decided it was time for a change and I was going to join the military.
The next day I was sitting in my recliner playing Xbox (halo, love that game) and I got a phone call from my buddy Rodney. He had set me up with a friend of his girlfriend. I was down to meet her and hang out but I told him I had to go to the recruiter so I couldn’t go. He somehow convinced me into going and skipping out on going to the recruiter.
Later that night I met up with Rodney and his girlfriend to go pick up Tiffany. She had to work late so we picked her up from work. Erica (Rodney’s girlfriend) went inside to get her, about 5 minutes later I see her emerge out of the darkness and behind her was the most beautiful woman I had ever laid eyes on. She had these blue eyes that seemed to light up the night. Her smile was breathtaking and to be honest, at that moment I was really glad to have skipped out on visiting the recruiter.
I was still in awe as she opened the door with her bubbly smile that made me grin. I tried to gather myself as she introduced herself with some sort of weird gracefulness that I could not comprehend but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Our conversation was as if we have been friends since we were children. We decided to go grab a bite to eat so we went to a restaurant that I used to work at that had amazing food. We sat down and the topic of conversation was farts. I have no idea how this became the topic but I was intrigued. The way tiffany carried herself was astonishing to me, nothing like I have ever seen before. She was very open and honest which to me is among the most rare and best qualities to find in a person. We laughed so much my face was sore. I felt a connection that I never thought I would feel.
