A Chance Encounter

What did I know? I was just 22 and heartbroken. I had just begun working at my first real job and settled into my own place. The “reality” of a grown life soon became evident and the shadow of loneliness became my roommate. I was lost; but tried to compensate for my lack of experience with effort. Then I met you. The handsome pilot at the bar. The girl in the leather skirt walked away; and I was next in line. You seemed quiet and introspective. You showed interest which is all I needed. The rest is history as they say. I often replay the moment in my mind; as if I could alter the course of events. Thirty years have passed and I have survived you. I wonder how that girl in the leather skirt is doing?
