The first encounter is crucial and could tell us what’s in store for the future, but desire or fear often clouds judgment in that situation.Red: Hey, how is it going?
Green: (Who do you think your are, dude?)
Red did not know it at the time, but he was in for a tough ride.
When he had first seen Green, Red had seen the love he was looking for. He was always falling in love at first sight however, and he perhaps should have known better, yet he knew it was just a matter of time before his feelings would be shared, and he thought the time would come soon.
When she had first seen Red, Green had seen all what was wrong with him, and it was a lot more than what she was used to. She always knew directly what was wrong with the men she met anyhow, yet she was sure one day the One would come. She just had to keep waiting, and she did not think the wait was over.
The problem was, neither Red nor Green knew who they were. They thought everything was fine with them, they had friends, they were working, they liked to party, life was great. Of course, they were looking for someone, but they were sure this someone would come one day like in a fairy tale, and everything would be fine. They did not think they had to learn anything. In fact, Red thought he was quite a daring guy, and Green thought she was quite a cool girl.
So, why was Red so afraid to talk to her as soon as he saw her? Why was Green so stupidly grinning at him each time she was meeting him in the hallway, then fleeing?
The day Red summoned the courage to say something to her, it is no wonder it did not exactly went as planned!
