The Cuteness In…Him

Him: -walks up to her- You’ve turned me down a lot whenever I ask you to go out to eat or just hang out.

Her: I know –sighs and looks down as she walks around him- I’m sorry

Him: -studies her- What is it?

Her: -walks to the sink- You’re a great guy. Don’t get me wrong. I would love to go out and eat o-or go to the movies…or just hang out….

Him: But…?

Her: -picks up a plate- My parents would never let me

Him: Your parents love me though. They would trust me to take care of you while we’re out

Her: I don’t know…. –tries to occupy herself with the dishes but fails-

Him: I’ve even talked to your mom. I brought it up with her and asked if she didn’t allow, and she said it is up to you. She’d let you go, no problem.

Her: -darts her eyes to him in surprise- really? –pauses and brings her eyes back to the dish in her hand- That doesn’t sound like her…

Him: She just wants you to be happy

Her: I want to be happy too…but I don’t know what it’s going to take to get me happy…permanently

Him: -pauses and hesitates before looking to the counter- what about a boyfriend?

Her: My parents would never let me date –casually replies-

Him: -shrugs and steps closer- Like I said, they love me –says with a little more confidence-

Her: -doesn’t really hear him- …and even if you’d get past my mom, there’s always my dad. He would forbid me to date anyone

Him: I think it just depends on you

Her: -glances at him and quickly looks away embarrassed- ….I-I just realized what we’re talking about

Him: -studies her- You really doubt yourself, don’t you…

Her: -slowly nods and sighs- Yeah. I doubt if I’m good enough for any guy I know, of even anyone I will get to know. I doubt whether they guy who thought he knew me so well and loved me would stay with me if he found out what I’m truly like. I doubt if I’ll ever be good enough to make the cut. I doubt-

Him: -puts his hand over hers, cutting her off- Stop doubting yourself. You’re wonderful the way you are.

Her: -looks down- You don’t know that. You don’t know me….

Him: -wait for her to look at him- I know you well enough to know that you are perfect in my eyes
