Recently I went to see a band with my girl friends. It was a fun night and the music was rock covers so we could all sing along and spill beer down our arms. I pushed down to the front and positioned us right in front of the band. [...] I could feel someone looking at me and turned to the left where I locked eyes with a very, very good-looking guitarist. He had green eyes and we had one of those stares where you both dare each other to stop looking first but you can't. One of those stares that make you want to drop to your knees in front of him.
I broke the gaze eventually and looked at my friends who were both wide-eyed. 'What was that?!' they mouthed and I fanned my red face with my hand.
The rest of the gig it was hard to take my eyes off him. It was clear that we fancied each other and he even sang along to some of the lyrics while he was staring at me.
After the gig I tapped him on the back and he turned round; his green eyes again. I said, 'I have two questions for you. One, was the cute girl standing next to me your girlfriend?'
'What's the second question?' he asked.
'That doesn't matter now.' Pause. Then in my beery bravado I said, 'You would though, wouldn't you?' and he said that I should come to the gig next Saturday and he would guarantee that she wouldn't be there.
I didn't go, but I did think about it.
