Subway Encounters: When Two Hopeless Romantics Cross Paths

As I sat at work, all I could think about was purchasing a new book. My mind needed fuel and my heart needed reassurance.

The clock strikes 5 o'clock and I begin to gather my belongings. Dashing off the elevator down the street to the 23rd Street subway station -- I make it just in time. I run on the N train anticipating getting off at the next stop. The only thing on my mind is Strand Bookstore. I guess you could say it's my special hiding place when I need to get away.
I rummage through the books trying to find one that speaks to me. I google reviews on Amazon for pretty much every single book I pick up and eventually put back down. While walking up and down the aisles, I stumble across two books -- one I have had my eye on for sometime now and one that the title immediately caught my eye, The Lovers Dictionary and My Heart is an Idiot. I'm pretty sure you can guess which title caught my eye first.
I gasp and run in line. With ten other people ahead of me, the line actually moves quicker than I had anticipated. I purchase my two books, spending more than I had planned -- but I am pleased.
I run into the subway terminal hoping that the R train is there as soon as I arrive, but as I'm running down the steps -- the train is pulling off. It always happens that way.
While I wait, I pull out The Love Dictionary and start reading. I'm immediately enthralled by the diction and imagery the author conveys through his writing. My heart flutters every time I turn a page.
A young man standing beside me taps me, but I don't feel him until he taps me a second time. I look at him and he begins small talk -- which I'm not much of a fan of, but he's friendly so I oblige.
He sees me reading my book and says, "you're a hopeless romantic aren't you?"
I reply saying, "I guess you could say that."
giving me a smile of endearment he says, "I've been down that road before."
I chuckle.
he says, "don't worry, it gets better" and goes on to ask about the train we are waiting for.
I don't know this guy and he doesn't know me, but the mere fact that he reassured me that it gets better was enough to make all my worries and cares disappear.
I don't think we meet people on accident. Whether they are in our lives for five seconds or five years, they are there to teach us a lesson.

It's up to us at the end of the day to decide whether we will take that lesson and do something positive with it.

I was romantic once, I think I still might be at the heart, but things get in the way, and priorities shift. I'm glad you're finding some peace @jordanhamilton good things have a way of finding good people.
most definitely! @christianmordi as I've gotten older I've slowly, but surely learned the art of being patient. it's hard, but it's worth it.
this is amazing!! i love friendly people and sometimes small talk from a random is exactly what we need, like a sign sent from God to remind us its all ok!
yeah.. I think we have all been down that road, relationships come with time, we just have to be patient and enjoy the ride until then
Awesome card, I loved the gif of the two waiting for the train!

Jungkook No Longer Baby Boy (+19)
Que tal peeps! WE ARE STILL COUNTING DOWN TO JUNGKOOK'S BIRTHDAY IN THE AMS COMMUNITY. THIS IS A QUICK FANFICTION THAT CONTAINS MATURE CONTENT! Jungkook has always been like a little brother to you and you always looked after him, especially when the guys picked in him. You were planning a special birthday surprise for him with the guys. "He should be happy he gets a cake." Yoongi scuffed. "Well well now lets not be too mean Yoongi...he is the youngest." I said while writing down ideas. You and the guys came up with a plan. You and Jin would bake a cake and cook food. Hobi and Tae would clean up while Namjoon and Yoongi decorated. "Namjoon please don't break anything." Hobi laughed. Namjoon rolled his eyes and laughed. The next day it was super hot in the office and all you wanted to fo was take a shower. You rushed home and jumped into the shower. Jin would be shopping for food with Namjoon while the others bought decorations. Jungkook would be at the library volunteering so everything should be finished then. The water felt so good as you allowed it to hit your skin. You had your relaxing body wash. You inhaled the lavender scent and lathered up your body sponge. You began cleaning and singing when you seen a pair of eyes looking in the small crack of the door. You paused thinking you seen something else. You didn't know if your mind was playing tricks on you. Then you looked back and no one was there. You finisjef showering and walked down to your room. You noticed Jungkook's door was cracked. This was strange cuz he always locks his door. You pay no mind and get dressed. The crew arrived and you all get to preparing the surprise birthday for Jungkook. You were pleased how everything played out. Namjoon only broke 3 things which is good. You walked to your room to get an extra present you brought for Jungkook when you noticed your pantry drawer was opened. Your neatly arranged panties were all a mess. You picked up the present wrapped in shiny red wrapper and seen that Jungkook's door was cracked wider. You walked down the hall and heard odd noises. "Yass gosh noona..." You peeped your head in without makjng a sound and saw Jungkook with your panties in his hand. He was licking a pink pair with a red pair wrapped around his man hood. Jungkook was stroking himself. You found yourself shook for a moment. But then you began watching out of enjoyment. Your breathing goth heavier. Jungkook slowly his hand motion and grinned. "I know you are watching me noona." You covered ur mouth. But a gasp escaped ur wet lips. "Jungkook why do you have my panties? "Noona you know I want you. I made that clear last week when I spanked the hell out of you. Remember you made me promise not to tell." You walked into his room and closed the door. "Shh boy that was a mistake." "A mistake?" Jungkook said while raising his eyebrow. He smiled while looking at the gift I had. "Nice wrapping but do you know what I really want noona?" Jungkook smirked. Jungkook walked closer to be still hard as a brick and stood behind me allowing his hard on to rub between by cheeks. He let out a groan. "I know you been with all the guys nonna, they brag about it. I want you now." Jungkook said. "Jungkook...look those days are behind me. I'm no longer group banging trash." "Okay I will just spread the word at work." Jungkook laughed. "Fine Jungkook." I hissed. Jungkook pushed me on my stomach while sliding my shorts to the side. He was happy to see I had in no panties. He stuffed a pair or my panties he had in my mouth and plunged deep inside me without mercy. The pink wet panties muffled my scream of pleasure. Jungkook pounded me hard and fast. "Noona you were all wet from watching me?" Jungkook smacked my butt hard. "ANSWER me. You like watching me wack off?" I nodded as he pulled me hard into him. He switched so we were facing the mirror and began pounding me hard hitting all my spots. "Look at that little face. You love it noona. Yoongi said you like it rough." I surprised Jungkook and pusjed him back on his butt. I climbed on top of him. "You gotta do more to get me off little baby boy." I said while grinning. I began riding him hard and fast while pulling his hair. He began sucking my right breast as I rode him. "Yass that's a good baby boy." I moaned. I could see he was coming to the edge and so was I. The room echoed of slapping skin. "Noona yasss! Oh shit!" Jungkook moaned while exploded in me. The explosion made me go over the edge. My vision was so blurry. Suddenly the crew busted in "Happy Birthday Jungkook!" "Shit looks like we got to the party late." Yoongi blurted.
