After a long workday, the first thought that came to my mind was as follows: “Must get some rest, so I need to look for ways how to have fun. I want to meet someone, but who?” I continued to think who I would like to meet most, and the first person who come to my mind — a girl named Lāsma! Why exactly Lāsma? Because she was the first person who addressed me. At the moment, when I began to think what to do, Lāsma sent me a text message: “Hey! What are your plans for tonight? I’ll be at the club “Piens”, maybe you want to catch up? It’s Wednesday — so it’s time for wine, are you up for this challenge?”
At the first moment when I saw the words “Lāsma” and “to meet” in one message, I thought no longer and began to polish my shoes. I replied to her: “Tonight I’m going to have a party with the President of Latvia, but maybe at some moment I will be free ;)…”. Of course, I didn’t have actual plans, but she doesn’t need to know that. She answered only with the ambiguous “haha”. It made my blood circulate more rapidly through my body.
Wednesday at the club “Piens” — a great atmosphere, good music, a lot of people and wine. And Lāsma is there. On my way to the club I wrote here: “Are you still at “Piens”? I am on my way…” I received an answer that shocked me quite a bit and changed the course of the evening: “We are at the bar, I am with my roomie, we are waiting for you to join us! ;)”
Her roomie… This was the girl named Liene, with whom I had one too many drinks in an event a long time ago, however it was exactly enough to want to conclude the evening together. At that time, I did not have the money for an apartment where to bring a girl back without being ashamed. So, we went to her apartment and had another drink. It was a big mistake at that time, because we had known each other just for a few hours and only thing uniting us was the amount of alcohol in our bodies. This spontaneous activity was followed by a long and awkward morning in the bed. The drunkenness was gone, and the conversations wasn’t flowing at all. When I finally got home, I was ashamed of myself, I never wrote back to Liene and our contact ended there.
Until now. Of course, if she finds out that I am seeing her roomie, she won’t give any good comments about me. Sitting in a car, I thought how I could get out of this situation and began to think about a solution. A thought popped into my mind that I could write to my friend who could distract Liene, allowing me calmly to speak to Lāsma and get to know her more closely. I called my friend, who is every Wednesday at “Piens”. This time was no exception. I explained the current situation and gave him a task to distract Liene. I asked what type of whiskey he does prefer and told him that I owe one. After a while, he reported back to me saying: “I found a girl named Liene. We drunk, now we are dancing, and her friend is alone at the bar. Act!” The best message ever written by a friend!
When I entered “Piens”, I immediately went to Lāsma. I didn’t see Liene anywhere near her. Lāsma greeted me with a passionate kiss. I wondered whether she missed me, or it is because my friends have been neglecting and not paying attention to her. My plan was as follows — have a quick conversation with Lāsma, she finishes her drink and we go somewhere else. In my mind “somewhere else” was my bed. She really agreed to come along, just said that she will quickly say goodbye to her friend and come. In order not to be noticed, I said that I will already go and warm up the car. As a safety guarantee I took her jacket and purse, to assure that she will have no chance of disappearing on me.
I went to the car and was happy about the great plan. I drove closer to the entrance, Lāsma sat in the front. Then suddenly the rear doors of the car opened and Liene got in together with my friend. I was having a little panic attack, I had no clue how to get out of this situation. I sat and looked in the rearview mirror, but it seemed that Liene was having a lot of fun. It seemed that she did not even recognize me, which slightly made the whole situation better. At this point, I realized that I still have hope, just need to get rid of the joyful company at the back of the car.
It’s Wednesday evening and there are not many options to party, therefore the only place that came to mind was “Skyline Bar”. We went there. As soon as we arrived, my friend and Liene got out. This was my chance. Left alone with Lāsma, I immediately asked, “Maybe we go to my place?” Lāsma hugged me, kissed me on my cheek and replied, “Thank you for a wonderful evening, but I already know what will follow and I am not a short-term entertainment option. Have a nice evening, it was interesting to get to know you!” She got out of the car and closed the door behind her.
I sat still in the car just for a few minutes, thinking about what just happened. It became clear to me that the girls had talked about me among themselves, and Liene had told everything she thought of me. I felt a bitter disappointment knowing that there will be no nice ending to this evening together with Lāsma, and I regret that I will not get to know this beautiful and intelligent girl closer. Then my thinking process stopped, my mind restarted, and I began to see everything clearly. What else could I do, I haven’t done anything harmful to anyone? Except, my trick for tonight, I’ve been fair to both girls. If it is not in the cards, it is not! There are many more long legs in the world, beautiful smiles and attractive women. Each ending is the beginning of something new and better.
