Hey! I’m picking you up from your home tonight. Remember, you lost a bet in the game of poker we played the day before yesterday. That’s how you owe me a date. You always keep losing bets and never seem to learn. Alright. Alright. Quit whining, hurry up and get ready. It’s going to be a super long night, so don’t you dare make me wait. Stand by the lamp post which won’t ever stop flickering. I’ll be there in few minutes. Promise. Don’t you go anywhere. We are going to explore city lights at this late hour. It’s a good thing to not live in a big city. Because big cities don’t sleep and there’s always rush. But ours’ isn’t a big city. It’s tiny. Roads are too small, but at least they’re empty. I can’t wait to race against eastern winds in this drizzling rain. Wait, did you pack something to eat? Go right now and get something, anything to eat. I’m hungry and all the shops here are already shut. Today, a friend in college mentioned there being a wishing tree on a hill just in the outskirts of our city. You’re supposed to tie a thread around the tree while you focus entirely on your wish. I’ll take you there. You can wish for anything you want, and maybe I’ll pray for something too. Can you see the stars above? Thank God, we don’t live in some big city. Or else we wouldn’t have known these starlights and the moonshine as we know them now. I’m almost there, I’ll be right there. You can hop onto my bike and then we’ll go live the most amazing night of our lives, together.
