It was a beautiful spring afternoon. Flowers bloomed everywhere. Different shades of red, orange and violets could be seen. Birds were chattering on a nearby tree. She was sitting at the edge of the highest hill. Legs hanging down, she was admiring the breath taking scene. The clouds seemed to touch the mountains. It looked as if they were whispering to each other. She could hear water flowing in the river. A cool breeze blew and a strand of hair fell on her face. Everything was so calm but she was restless. She was thinking of her life, of her stupid fantasies about her many imaginary boyfriends. Among all, there was a boy named Mike. She was hopelessly in love with him but didn't have enough courage to confront him. He on the other hand didn't seem to notice her. This made her heart ache. The thought of him with other girls shattered her heart. While she was lost in her thoughts, someone covered her eyes from behind. She was amused. She thought she recognized this person. She remembered his cologne from bumping into him and passing by him often. Suddenly, she recognized him and her heart started beating fast. \"Mike\" she said and turned to look at the familiar face. She looked into his deep blue eyes that she admired so much. She almost got lost in his eyes but then took a step back to get a better look at him. He was wearing an all black outfit. A black shirt which was a perfect fit and it outlined his muscular body. His sleeves were folded upto his elbows. This was the first time she was looking at him so closely. She took in every detail about him. She stood there speechless. After few seconds passed by  She asked, \"How did you know I was here?\" Mike replied, \"I looked for you but couldn't find you anywhere. Then I thought you had to be here.\" Mike was looking at her. She was wearing a light blue tank top and black pants. She had let her hair loose. Every few seconds wind would blow and a strand of hair fell on her face. She gently tucked it behind her ears. He said, \"You are beautiful\" She blushed lightly, smiled and said 'Thank you'. She then asked, \"Why were you looking for me?\" Mike looked at her for a while. He was wondering how to put it in the right words. He said, \"I just wanted to spend some time with you.\" She bit her lips lightly but didn't say anything. She wanted to hear what he had to say. He sensed this and continued, \"It's been a while since I wanted to tell you. I have noticed the way you look at me and the way you behave around me.\" He looked at her but she stood quiet and blushed lightly. Taking it as a sign to keep speaking he said, \"I know you like me and care about me. I care about you too. You may think I haven't noticed but I have. I don't know when but I have started loving you. I can't bear to think of you with anyone else. I really love you, Leslie.\" Leslie stares at him with her eyes wide open. Her heart skips a beat. Everything happened so suddenly she couldn't think of what to say. She just went into his arms and hugged him tight. She took in the smell of the cologne which she had just smelled from a far. In the matter of minutes things had changed so much. She felt as if she was dreaming.

 She hears a sharp sound of something crashing. She looks around. There was pitch darkness. Slowly she takes in her surrounding and realizes she was in her bed. She turns on the light. It was 3 in the morning. She sees broken pieces of a flower vase. Perhaps a mouse was running around the house. Then she remembers everything that had happened. She recalls every detail and smiles to herself. She then shakes her head in dismay and says, \"I really was dreaming.\"
