ShortStory: Hey Stranger…

While crossing the road holding an umbrella in one hand and my handbag on the other shoulder, I bumped into a thoroughly drenched stranger. 
I looked closer at him, and I couldn’t believe how good looking he really was. 

It looked like he had just left the office and was running late for a meeting. I looked at him once again, smiled, and decided to create some small talk with him.

“Hey stranger, it’s raining!”
I laughed the minute I made that statement. 

He looked at me, and around at the pouring rain and laughed loudly.
“Oh, really? Whatever gave you that idea?”

I looked at him and laughed even louder.

“Yeah, I’m fully wet, and you caught that, huh?”
I smiled at him. 
“Yes, it’s a little tough not to notice!”
“Would you like to share an umbrella with me?”

He gave me the brightest smile while considering what to say. 

“Hey, stranger,”
“Come on, get in!”  I told him as i tilted my umbrella toward his direction.

He gave me a million-dollar smile. “Thank you, beautiful stranger!”
“So, which direction are you headed to?” I asked him.

Right after I asked him that question, it starts pouring even heavier with lightning and thunders. He got even closer toward me under the umbrella each time lightning struck. 

“Right now, I’ll just walk with you wherever you got to go and then, I’ll just steal your umbrella away, from you!”

I laughed and said, “I wouldn’t blame you for stealing my umbrella, at all!
“I’m just glad that we’re headed in the same direction, the winds are taking us.”

I flinched every time lightning struck, which was followed by a loud thunder roar. 
He held on to my hand every time I flinched. 
I looked at him and smiled. “You caught that I’m afraid of lightning, didn’t you?”
He looked at me, straight into my eyes, and gently said: “Yes, stranger!”

“You have absolutely nothing to worry about, as I’m right next to you!”
I smiled, “Thank you for showing me that you care, and that’s worth a million words.” 

While walking towards my car, just as I was about to get in, I turned to look at him.
“Hey stranger, could I ask you one more question?”

“He smiled, “absolutely!”

“So…, what’s your name?”

      Hunk’s Name,.. now that’s something to think about. How does George Michael or Robert Downey Jr sound?
