Lovers at school sometimes cannot find a good place to date. They have school works but wanted to be together. William and Grace’s decided to go to the library. Is this a good decision or not? Let’s see
I wanted to see William again after the “billiard class”. I know he is a hardworking guy so I decided to meet him in the library.
I stepped in the room he usually stays and saw him. I politely said hi to him and sat across him. The distance is not too intimate or extraneous. The library was quite, I can hear the sound created by the pen in my trembling hand. Besides that was William typing on his silver laptop or writing on his scratch paper. Sometimes, he was holding his chin, staring at the screen as if he was stuck in a difficult problem. He was listening to the music. What song did he play? With him sitting close to me, I cannot concentrate on the paper I read. I stood up, approached a computer and searched for other papers to read. For a while, I missed him again so I went back to my seat. I did not know how many minutes had past.
We stayed together until the library closed at five. We took bus home together. He was sitting next to me. We were talking and laughing as if we were already a couple. William was supposed to take off the bus one stop earlier than me. Sometimes I also took off there because I was afraid of crossing the street without the traffic light. The former stop had the traffic light and the two stops were pretty close. In fact, this time, crossing the street was a mere excuse because it was still bright outside. I mentioned it only because I wanted to spend some more time with him. William took my excuse seriously and insisted on taking off with me and sending me home. So he did.
It was a relatively warm day so I went to the library as usual. Though I did not have projects to do, I still needed to put myself in a learning state. I love this room in the library. The bookshelves around the wall created a perfect environment for learning. After the noon, the sunshine flashed through the colored glaze falling on the table. I felt I was in a church instead of library which made me feel peaceful.
The sudden sound of high heel broke the peace. I looked up and saw a girl in red coat and grey furry hat. It was so Grace that wherever she went, there cannot be tranquility. I was surprised by the fact that I was delighted with knowing much about her. “Hi”, still the mesmerizing smile, I smiled back.
It was not a good idea to stay in the library with beautiful girl. I could not fully concentrate myself to the work at hand. At first she was reading something in her tablet, underlying something on the screen. Later she brought out Plato’s book and read. I knew it because she ever showed her thoughts about Plato on Facebook. I ever tried to read the paragraphs but I failed. I shall never understand what this kind of book talking about I was supposed. But Grace can. She sometimes smiled, still the mesmerizing kind as if she found some interesting thing. If we were not in the library, I must have asked her about the content and let her talk with the smile.
Time went fast. To me concentrate myself, I plugged in my earphone and listened to some music but I still could not stop thinking about her so I stood up and went to the vending machine to get some drinks. In the following hours I was in a flow with my work until I heard the librarian announcing that the library would be closed at five.
Now let’s answer the question: whether library is an efficient place to date or not? The answer is yes and no. If you want to study, go to the library alone. If you want to date, library may be a good place to stay. Anyways, it is all your choice.
