Did I ever tell you how we met? I'm strolling through Union Square in NY on a warm sunny day enjoying every second of it when I see him from across the park. He's sitting with two boys of whom I can give a description of niether. Chase is the only one that sticks out on that day. I made a bee line straight toward him, sitting down within perfet adoring range and I did just that for about a half an hour. All I wanted to do the whole time is go up to him and talk, say something, anything! But he was with two others and questions remained plentyful, was one his boyfriend? Was he gay? Had he noticed me? Would he even think I was cute? Just then it happened, he got up and started to leave! I could feel my heart starting race, how could I stop him? Was this the only chance I would ever have to say something? The angst piled up as he walked further and further away. I knew I had only one choice, follow that boy! Ok ok, so I'm being a bit dramatic but heh, it's a good story right? I did actually follow him from a safe distance for a bit not really knowing why. I figured if he went into a store or a bar that I couldn't go in after him because stalkers don't make good boyfriend but I thought If I knew what neighborhood he lived in maybe I would bump into him at some later date. Well that was pretty much that, I finally walked off on my own after he walked down into one of the subway stops. But I couldn't get him out of my mind the whold way home, what was his name? Where was that subway taking him? Would I ever see him again? Cut to later that evening; I was in NY by myself for work so I really didn't know a lot of people so I decided to check the city out a bit on my own. I had read about a party at Bowery Bar later that night so I took a walk from my west Village hotel room and walked east toward Bowery. I must have been in the bar for all of five minutes, not even enough time to get a drink, when I see him. It was the boy from the park and this time he wasn't getting away! And thus began our New York love affair. [link]
