In the blink of an eye by Iga
It was a day, like any other. I left work at 8 and went straight to my car. I always take the same road home. But this Tuesday was a bit different.
When I got to the highway I was driving behind an Opel Insignia, which was maroon-burgundy colour. I was doing all the same moves as he did. And after a few minutes, he switched on the emergency lights for a second as if he wanted to give me a sign or something. I didn’t know what was going on. Then he changed the lane to the right and he slowed down a little to be at the same line as me. I looked at him, and my heart started beating faster. I remember it as if it was all in slow motion. He was looking straight at me, smiling a bit. I know that it was just a second, or even less, but I can say, for sure, that he was incredibly handsome. Then again he went faster to be in front of me, and put the lights again to get my attention. Both of us went to the same exit from the highway, and he stopped on the next lane to be next to my car. And again – this glance. He smiled, and we went in other directions.
The next 15 minutes of my road home were as if I was compelled or something. I couldn’t focus. The whole situation maybe took 5 minutes. But when I think about it right now, it was really something that I will remember for a while.
