The random story
Once there was a poor boy, who loves to travel. He visited various cities with just his bag pack. He could defend himself with krav maga and always helped others without them knowing it. This was the way he made sure that he never got into trouble. When people did find out that he was the hero, he would be humble about it. The rewards and gifts he accepted were never more than what he could eat at the moment.
The boy grew up to be a good man, a gentleman, who was rich with knowledge. He never had to depend on others and never thought twice of being careful for the sake of someone else. His mother found that he was a gift from God. He took care of her, even when he had nothing and he kept doing so even after he became someone respectable with a profession. Still she wishes for him to be happy for him to see that there is more than just knowledge in the world to fill his heart with joy.
The man has grown and has decided to live a few years in a city with a huge library, where he could feast on knowledge till his hearts content. The first day he entered the library, he bumped against a lady who was holding a stack of books. He couldn't see her face, but he heard her voice: "Oops!"
He replied with: "Are you all right?"
She smiled: "I am fine, thanks for keeping the books straight for me."
The second day he saw a lady on a horse racing up a hill with a couple of friends galloping after her. He didn't notice them at first, because he was reading a book while he sat against a tree. But her voice made him look up. She was laughing and said sarcastically to a male friend behind her: "You are definitely a man who is like God?"
One of her female friends teased the guy: "You don't have to be a God to get my attention. You surely can outpace me, right?"
The third day he saw her walking alone through the village reading a book. He walked next to her and said: "Do you like the story so far?"
She didn't look up from her book and said: "It depends, do you like horror, detective or thrillers?"
The man smiled: "Those are interesting genres to read, but aren't you reading a romance now?"
She blushed and put a bookmark between the page where she left off and closed the book.
The man: "That was one of the books you carried out of the library."
She looked up and said with uncertainty: "Were you the man, who levelled my books for me?"
He smiled: "Yes, I was."
She smiled: "Thank you, kind sir."
They stared at each other both mesmerized by each others smile.
The staring was disturbed by a scream from a woman. She ran up to the woman and saw that a little boy was hanging with one hand on the edge of the roof. Than she saw the man jump up onto the roof and pick up the boy. The woman was saying: "Thank God! Thank you, sir!"
The woman hugged her boy, after the man carried the boy down.
The man smiled: "I am glad that I could help."
She stared at the man and thought: "He just jumped and climbed up?"
She smiled and walked away, while the man was still talking to the woman and the boy.
When he was done chatting, he looked around and saw her walk away.
In the past, the poor boy was super cute so every woman or lady would talk to him and be kind to him. When he grew up, that never changed, woman loved to approach him just to talk to him. But never has he ever approached a girl on his own or let stand a lady when he became a gentleman. Except today, he did it twice with the same girl/lady.
He ran after her and said: "Wait! Are you hungry?"
She looked up and saw something fly over his head possibly a little bird? She shook her head, but before she could look again to see whether it was a bird he said: "I am hungry, lets go and eat there?"
He showed her his hand and waited.
She gathered her thoughts, wondering what just happened than she realized he asked her whether she was hungry. She was stunned and surprised, but instead of replying: "Yes, I am hungry."
She replied: "No, I am fine thank you."
She smiled kindly and continued her walk, while her stomach growled.
He heard the growl and smiled: "If you don't want to eat there... We could eat sandwiches in the park? I'll buy some sandwiches, which ones do you like?"
They were standing at the bakery stand and the local baker said: "She loves sandwiches with salmon, lettuce, pickles, cheese..."
The man made a face of disgust like a little boy: "Fish bleeeh..."
She stared at the cute face from the man and started to laugh.
The baker stared at her surprised and said: "You made her laugh, there must be something interesting about you. So you don't want fish on your sandwich, let me guess beef?"
The man: "Yes, please. A salmon sandwich for the lady and a beef sandwich for me."
She looked up: "Wait... You don't have to buy that. I can..."
She sighed, while she took the sandwich from the man's hand.
They walked to the park and sat down to eat.
He stared at her, while she took small bites from her sandwich. He was smiling the entire time.
She swallowed and noticed the smile: "Hmmm?"
He shook his head: "Nothing, you are just cute when you eat."
She turned around with her back facing him and finished the sandwich.
He laughed, when she turned around he stopped.
She smiled: "You are an interesting man."
He smiled: "You are an interesting woman."
Days passed and they kept meeting each other during a part of their daily lives, but both of them had their own lives to keep and own paths to follow. She was ready to leave the village, because she finished her research. She wasn't suppose to be in the village for longer than a year, but she was. He wouldn't have stayed so long, just for books. He would have been bored and moved on to another village. They stayed a few months longer to see each other,
The man: "Where are you going?"
She was wearing a coat and a huge bag pack on her back. She stared at him and smiled: "Going home."
The man: "Home?"
She nodded: "Yes, home."
The man: "Can you wait for half an hour?"
She shook her head: "No, I can't."
The man ran away and she shrugged her shoulders. She walked out of the village and headed to the trainstation, there she waited for the next train.
Half an hour later, a huffing and puffing man arrived at the trainstation. He was wearing a coat and a small bag pack.
She stared at him: "Where are you going?"
He smiled: "Home."
The train arrived. She stood up: "Home?"
The man said to an old man at the ticket window: "The same trainticket she has."
The man paid for the trainticket.
They got on the train and she shook her head: "You should follow your own path."
He smiled: "I am, at the moment I want to travel with you. You are my life now. You are my home."
She smiled: "Idiot!"
