The wind blew those glossy blond tresses. The sun glistened upon her olive skin as she took a seat beside me. She mumbled a “Hello” while the most strikingly gorgeous smile formed on those luscious lips. I stared at her in awe, completely dumbfounded. She timidly stared at the ground while nervously playing with her fingers. My eyes met hers, my mouth scrunched as I studied every detail on that stunning face. Her almond shaped eyes that sparkled with mischief. Their deep, ocean blue colour had me mesmerized. Those long, thick lashes that could shelter thee from a thunderous rain, Or that dainty button nose that she anxiously kept rubbing.

 My gaze fell upon those rosy, full lips. Oh, how they complimented those strong cheekbones. The way her eyebrows arched as she gazed at me.  Her lips parted as she uttered in the most melodious of voices “excuse me” “Are you done?”

  I snapped out of my trance as I motioned for her to wait.  My hands raced, my eyes transfixed on that flimsy piece of paper” as I put the finishing touches to my masterpiece. “Here you go, a beautiful portrait of the beautiful lady”
