via Daily Prompt: Generous
“That’s so generous of you, thank you.” “You’re welcome, it’s nothing…” Lila eyed the stranger curiously, drinking in her energy that seemed to instantly alight across the airwaves between them. “I’ve never seen you around here before, are you new?” “Yes and no” answered Tara. “I grew up here, then I left for a long time, now I’m back.” Tara’s wry smile told Lila there was more to the story, but she stopped herself from asking. Instead she got lost in her head for a minute, allowing that alluring feeling of familiarity and wonder to fill her up with warmth. She felt strongly like they had already met. She loved feeling this, the intriguing attraction that you just can’t put your finger on. Those moments when there is no denying the magnetism. The universe, in all its eternity comes tumbling into your world, colliding two souls in the midst of their journeys. The moments that make you wonder; “Have we all been here before?” The sound of Tara’s voice broke her spell and Lila came back to the moment. “Well, I’ve got to go, Tara said, maybe I’ll see you again?” “Absolutely” responded Lila, thinking to herself, I’m quite sure of it.
