Charlie felt his stomack rumbling and remember he hadn’t eaten something yet! He went by the stand and bought a hot dog. After he finished that small but filling meal, he saw the ice cream stand. He hadn’t tasted ice cream for a long time so he felt a bit excited when he decited to try one for dessert. He went with strawberry flavour and it tasted delicious!
While he waited for more people to arrive he decided to practice some soccer. He had actualle been pretty good at it when he was a kid, around 8-9 years old. But later when he became a teenager, he started to find things like gardening much more interesting.
The sun started to set and a eating contest was about to start. “Oh, free food” Charlie thought to himself and laught a little. Of course he wanted to enter the competition so he lined up with the other three.
Fortunately, Charlie isn’t a bad looser and he congratulated his opponent afterwards. The man was very polite and the two of them chatted for a while. Then the man said goodbye. He had to go home to his family. A family. Right. One of Charlies greatest dreams: To get his own family and rais his own kids.
He tried to shake of the sad feeling that had popped up inside him. He met a lovely lady next to the skating rink. She was very nice and Charlie forgot his worries for a moment. Her name was Elin and was married to Johan, the man Charlie met at the gym.
“Oh, my husband mentioned you” she said and smiled. “You are new here, right? Welcome to Aurora Skies”.
“Thank you” Charlie smiled back. They chatted for a while. Then Charlie felt for another snack, so he excused himself and headed to the food stall.
On his way over to grab a plate of fries, he stopped. In front of him he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen! His legs started moving forward to the woman without him beeing fully aware of it. When he stopped right next to her he couldn’t come up with anything to say.
“Yes, can I help you with something?” The woman lookt at him with a little friendly smile at her face. Finaly Charlie pulled himself together.
“Hi! My name is Charlie and I’m new in town” he said and smiled back. “I just wanted to introduce my self.”
“Oh, hi Charlie! Nice to meet you”. They shook hands and the woman introduced herself as Fjord. “I’ve head that someone new moved in at the lakeside” Charlie couldn’t have imagine how fast rumors spread in a small town as Aorura Skies.
Fjord proved to be a very excitable and she was really passionate about her career. She worked in the muic buissnes as a background singer, and loved it. They talked for a long time. About his move to the town, her job, his job, the public garden, art, music. Yeah, about a lot of random stuff. During the whole time, Charlie couldn’t stop staring into her beautiful eyes. He felt all warm inside, despite the cold evning air. But as the night went on, he didn’t said anything to Fjord. He didn’t even attempt to flirt with her.
