“The Pitch”

 

 

It wasn’t how

he pictured it

the reaction he got

can best be

described as

slight,

he hadn’t ever

faced up to

anything as

foreboding

and as intimidating

in his life

as this,

he saw it going

in multiply directions

some very good

ones

a few really bad,

but each

and every one

initiated

a strong response

of some sort,

he tried to

prepare himself

for each possible

scenario

but not a single

one

offered him

a chance for

a rebuttal,

so

he framed

and polished

his presentation

changing a word

adding a pause

making sure

he can project

his point

in a strong

yet unrehearsed

manner

as far as he

was concerned

this pitch

could change his

life

forever,

he had planned

this meeting

for the last hour

of the work day

but as he

was heading for

his office

with two coffees

in his hands

she came around

the corner

and for some

unknown reason

he deviated

from his plan

and blurted out

“I Love You”

and as time

stood still

for him,

he noticed the clock

behind her

was 9-minutes slow,

one of the

just poured coffees

was an inch

fuller

than the other

one

and her face

didn’t have

a look of

excitement,

surprise,

or even

confusion,

it actually

didn’t change

at all

“That’s sweet”

“Is one of those?”

“Coffees for me?”

she said

reaching out

to grab the one

that was an inch

fuller

than the other,

he just stared out

blankly

and nodded

“Yes”

as she

grabbed the coffee

and left…
