I had no intention of getting up early this week-end, so I pulled the covers over me, closed my eyes to sleep some more. The buzzer of the outer door phone went off so I got up, and went and answered it.I recognised the voice and pushed the button in that would open the door. A minute or so, Nicky was at my front door. He is a friend of mine. We always go out together at the week-ends. I said to him, ''For God's sake, do you know what time it is?'' He came in the door. ''Am I too early?'' He asked.
''It''s only 07:30 am,'' I told him. ''That's pretty pushing it. Go put the kettle on. Is your girl working again early today?''
He nodded his head, ''Yes, she won't be back until late afternoon. Overtime you know, we need the extra money.''
''Who doesn't,'' I said. ''Life is getting harder and harder. And you know me, I love my sleep.''
''I know that,'' he said, '' but staying asleep is not going to get you the girl you're after. You have to make your move or someone else will beat you to it.''
''That's true what you said, I'm treading carefully and not rushing in too quickly.''
''You saw how she acted last night,'' he told me.
''Some women are like that. You should know that; having that girlfriend of yours They're very sensitive!''
Nicky brought two cups of coffee over that he had made. Set them on the coffee table. ''So what plan you have tonight?'' He asked me.
I looked at him and said, ''Time for the big move. I will tell her how I feel, not beating around the bush. I'll just say that I love her and want to be with her.''
''Just like that?'' Nicky looked surprised. ''That's not very romantic, is it?''
''Okay, Nicky, I know what you're getting at. I'll say to her, 'My interest in you is very strong, and I would like to date you.''
''Come on, mate, there's no bite in those words. Too old fashion. This is modern times now!''
''What would you say then Romeo?''
Nicky said, ''I would look her straight in her eyes and then say, 'My God you're beautiful. I can't let you get away because I will not find someone like you.''
''Rubbish Nicky. Unromantic. I will take her out for a walk under the moonlight, and then snog her.''
''You've lost the touch of being a real romantic person.''
''Watch me when I see her again, you'll see who's romantic or not. All this talk about go easy, talk nice, be polite. Okay, Nicky, I get your point. I'll do what you say.''

The End.
