[1: 1,989 of 10,000] Worth Waiting

In Short Story on April 11, 2020 at 6:48 PM


Carly was intensely browsing the books. Taking one out of the shelves, flip the back and go through its pages to examine, put it back, and then select another. Out of her sight is a gentleman amused of her. He noticed her subtle mannerism of quizzical look, gently brushing her hair to tuck in her right ear, he watches her stack of bracelets slides back and forth as she chooses one book to another.

She’s getting frustrated, she dreamt of a book but couldn’t find it in a pile. All she remembers is a blue cover, she loves reading and knows she recognizes it, but couldn’t possibly dig it out of her brain. Suddenly, she feels an energy that someone is watching her, she turns around and saw a man staring at her. James knew he’s caught, so he won’t let this moment pass and walk towards her.


“Do I know you?” for some weird reason, even the guy in front of her looks familiar but couldn’t bring herself to remember him too.

“I don’t know. I’m sorry, it may be weird, yet it is weird, let’s call it as it is, I was watching you. You looked disturbed,” and he let go of a confident and charming smile.

“Oh! I dream about this book, and I know I recognize it, but I couldn’t seem to find it.”

“Maybe I can help you. What do you remember about the book?”

“The cover was blue, and there was a ‘J’ in the author’s name. It’s about destiny.”

“You mean you’re looking for ‘Worth Waiting’ by James Byrne?”

“Oh, my God! Yes! You’re right, and you’re James Byrne!” Carly was like shell shock that everything became so clear instantly. She doesn’t believe in coincidence either.

“So, why are you dreaming about my book?” he smiled again.

“Okay, now I’ll be saying something weird, I was told by my spirit guides that I have to be mindful of my dreams, and I thought they were saying something important, so I have to find the book.”

“Well, you won’t find it in this section, it’s the next one,” and pointed the area.

“What are you doing here?”

“I just finished a meeting with some people here because I’m having a book reading for my new book next month. Are you free for coffee or cocktails? I can give you a copy of my book, I think I have one in my car when we’re done with the drinks?”

Carly blushed, and it didn’t go unnoticed, and James’ heart beats faster. He couldn’t explain that he’s falling in love fast to this woman that he doesn’t even know her name. He already checked the ring finger, thankfully no engagement or wedding band there. Now he just has to find out if she’s in a relationship.

“So?” James’ tone asked encouragingly.

“Yes! It’s quite late, a cocktail is okay instead of a coffee or else I’ll be up all night. I’m Carly Gil,” extended her warm hands, which he immediately responded with an assured handshake.

“Pleasure to meet you, Carly Gil. Shall we?” and he leads the way.

When they’ve reached a cozy bar next to the bookstore, Carly couldn’t resist being amused. She has sent out her manifestation of the right man that she’s supposed to marry and here she is with one of the most eligible bachelor writers. It could just be her imagination but he looked smitten of her and she’s going to milk that feeling.

“Will you tell me more about your spirit guides?”

“They’re pretty cool and I think I finally get their masterplan!”

“Tell me more.”

“Do you acknowledge the Law of Attraction?”


“I think I just attracted you,” Carly completed the statement with such conviction and James felt it.

“Are you feeling what I’m feeling?” James inquired.

“Like we’ve known each other for so long and we’re in the perfect moment of the sweet spot of rendevouz?”

“Yes, exactly!”

“Then yes, I’m feeling what you’re feeling,” and she smiled giddily.

The Universe has a plan for every dream brought to its attention. The right moment will come and it will be nothing but magical.
