That night, I can’t even sleep. I was left clueless of what’s happening. Do his actions say that probably, most probably, he liked me too?
I went outside my room and went to the canteen of the Olympic Village. I want to eat, to get rid of these thoughts.
The canteen was 24/7 open. I didn’t know actually why because yeah, athletes should be getting enough sleep right?! HAHA Well, it’s just 11pm.
Anyways, there are still a lot of people in here, especially there in the bar section. If you enter the canteen, the first you’d see are stalls of different countries presenting their different dishes and cuisines. There at the end part, is the bar section and you could see lotsa athletes there drunk, and dancing. Hey, I’m restricted there!
Since I am here in London, of course I would like to taste their food so I went to their stall. In fact, their stall is the biggest. Nothing different from American food though, so I was kinda disappointed. I wanna try Asian meals!
I went to the Chinese stall. I asked myself, ‘why am I doing this alone?’ hahaha. Oh yeah, I realized all my roommates are fast asleep already, too tired for their events. While me, just cheered and cheered so I guess I wasn’t tired at all. I’m suddenly craving for noodles.
“One wanton noodles please,” I asked. While I was waiting I felt hands on my shoulders, gently massaging it. ‘Feels good’, as I closed my eyes. Then I realized I didn’t know whose those hands are from so I instantly turned around to face whoever it is.
“Hi,” YEAH Nathan’s voice. He greeted with his husky voice. Since he’s close behind me when I turned around we were just inches apart. My heart beats faster.
“O-Oh, hi!” I smiled a bit. I’m quite nervous.
“I didn’t know you like Asian dishes,” He smiled back. He removed his hands off my shoulders and he also ordered.
“Give me a wanton noodles please,”
He then faced me, “Why are you alone here? Where’s Michael?”
“U-hm, probably in his room, or with his girlfriend, I don’t know haha” I laughed.
He carried the tray and pay for our orders. I followed him towards the table.
As we started eating, it felt kinda awkward because I don’t know what to say to him to start conversation. Uh-yeah, maybe I’ll just ask him about why he gave the bouquet to me, to clear things out.
“Uhm” we said in unison. I blushed.
“You go first,” I said
“No, ladies first” It seem like an order but then his voice is so sweet.
“Uhm- I just wanna say you did well in the relay” I smiled sweetly.
I saw him gulped. “Yeah, and you did exceptionally well in your event too, congrats” OMG IS NATHAN ADRIAN BLUSHING?
“Yeah, you too.” I answered. It felt awkward actually.
“What do you wanna ask?” I asked him to break this very AWKWARD silence.
“Uhm I just wanna say you did well too haha.” He giggled.
“uhm, Nathan, why did you give the flowers to me?” That made him stop. Did I just ruin the moment? :O
He didn’t answer instead he held my hand.
“Let’s get outta here.” He dragged me out of the canteen.
