It was his beautiful smile and gentle energy that drew me like a moth to a flame. I couldn't understand why someone I didn't even know had this effect on me.
The first time I saw him we were lining up to embark. His hair was long, too long in my opinion. But as he looked around our eyes met; I noticed a sweetness, a gentleness, an unassuming nature to this tall, dark stranger.
It's amazing what you can read in a glance, a quick glimpse of someone's aura.
I forgot all about him as my friend and I made our way through the embarkation process to finally board the ship.
