Once he entered the restaurant, he spotted her and she was greeted by him with a smile and pleasant hello.
She was a beautiful, intelligent, and a free spirited young woman that he met at a convention a few days ago.
Though he was nervous, they began conversing with one another and they were hitting it off really well!
The waiter brought them their coffee and a few muffins.
They got so caught up in their conversation, that he sipped his coffee too fast and forgot that it was still very hot!
He jumped once he felt the temperature of the beverage and as a result, a little coffee dripped down his chin and some spilled on the table too! Oh no!
He panicked and was so embarrassed about what just happened!
To his surprise, she reached over and started softly wiping his chin with a few napkins, helping him clean up the mess.
She asked if he was okay and told him that she is clumsy at times and has a habit of spilling things too, so don’t feel bad!
Whew he was relieved!
The conversation continued and they scheduled a nice dinner for that upcoming weekend.
Turns out that he suggested a dinner spot that happened to be a favortite restaurant for the both of them!
He knew this would be the start of something wonderful!
