If you missed Part I, https://lennonliberated.com/2020/04/24/southside-chronicles-part-i/
Guests were sprinting from their cars with umbrellas in hand to the front doors of the church. Thunder rolling loudly as the windows rattling dominating the church bells ringing. Large dark eerie clouds were moving in slow motion in the sky.
Joey tightened his tie admiringly in the make shift dressing room while his groomsmen played poker drinking whiskey neat. He couldn’t help but reminisce in his mind of the first time he saw her. Her legs went up to that beautiful chin. He was hoping she would notice him looking at her. She continued walking with her head down as if she had been scolded. His heart was beating rapidly, licking his lips he began sweating profusely as he deliberately walked right into her. The heavy books dropped to the floor scattering as people stepped over them as they continued walking to their classes.
He apologized as he lowered himself to the floor hoping that she would make eye contact with him but instead she dipped down without even looking at him. She rushed grabbing the books as her eyelashes flickered.
Clearing his throat while handing her a book, “I’m really sorry. Maybe I could take you out for a milkshake some time to make up for my clumsiness?”
It seemed like hours before her piercing ocean blue eyes finally met his. She blinked a few times and looked back down at the floor shaking as she grabbed the last book. He gently touched her elbow to help her up as a gentleman should. Glaring at him with those eyes he repeated “Can I take you out for a milkshake some time?” Her high cheek bones were flushed.
