Uni[versity] assignment - to write popular fiction. So this is Twishite-esque.

It was not yet another average teen romance. For one, he was not a teenager; he had the appearance only, the gray pupils of his eyes penetrated her very soul. She was lost in memory, thinking about every minute detail. It was only a split second of spilt Sprite, but maybe the stain from it would last long enough for him to think of her in a fond way.

She watched the bubbles in her latte pop one by one, as she sat in the coffee shop. It was not unusually busy or unusually empty; it was just another normal lunchtime. Sitting by the window, she then watched the world go past her. She saw him again.

It had to be him. He was the same height, and even wore the same clothes as when she first saw him. She picked up her latte, ran as fast as she could and fell to her knees in front of him. “I’m here to declare my undying love for you!”

He blinked at her in utter confusion. “Undying? I don’t even know your name... Who the hell are you?” He helped to pick her up from the ground and tried to avoid creating a scene.

“I’m the girl who spilt my drink all over you and oh my –“ She caught a better look of his eyes. They were an almost midnight blue protecting the soft gray of those seemingly fragile pupils. The whites of his eyes had a soft sheen to them, making them seem to have a breathless glimmer in the daylight. “I’m in love...”

He smiled at her, almost chuckling, as though this was a routine; he just seemed so familiar with it all. He took her by the hand and waltzed her along the street, weaving in and out of passing people. He whispered to her mid spin “I am not like other guys, but I think you already know that. I saw my parents die, tragically and brutally when I was young. Do you think you can still love a tortured soul?”

“Always, love."

Its completely naff in every way, but in a deliberate way. Its shallow and superficial, but I get the feeling that was your purpose. Well done.
