Holy shit. Okay, yesterday I flew into Hawaii (Oahu specifically). I wanted to grab Poké to eat and bring it with me to eat on the beach. I pick the place closest to me. I walk in, and there’s several workers behind the counter (it’s like a Subway layout). When I’ve constructed what I want in my head, I go to start my order, but it all goes out the window because the girl taking my order was so beautiful. I literally forgot how to say anything. And I was too shy to make direct eye contact. I couldn’t stop stuttering when I pushed myself to talk. Once I’m at the beach, all I could think about was how I had wished I had gotten her number. I go for a swim and I try to take a nap and the thought wouldn’t go away. So I convince myself to do it. What did I have to lose? In the likely event that I was rejected, I would just never see her again. I walk back to the Poké place and my legs feel like jello. I quickly walk past to scope the inside. It’s busy and full, and it’s such a small space. I sit down outside and anxiously wait. I wait partly for it to get less crowded and not busy, but mostly because I was nervous as fuck. I also had to time it right so that I wasn’t interrupting her from helping someone out. When it was empty as it was going to get inside, I finally went. I approached her and asked her if I could talk to her on the side. I walk to the corner of the place and she follows. She looks at me with a worried face and asks me if there was something wrong with my food. And I told her not at all! I said that I thought she was pretty and was wondering if I could get her number. She hesitated slightly and I told her that she didn’t have to if she didn’t want to! And she said that normally she would say yes, but she’s leaving Hawaii soon. I told her that I was only here for 7 days! And she’s like where did you come from? I told her Washington and I think she was saying that she’s going to Washington! She gives me her number and tells me how flattered she is and that I was extremely courageous to come up to her. I couldn’t stop smiling long after it all happened lmao. So yeah.
