The girl on the street

I was walking home at about three AM, taking in the cool, crisp night air and smiling to myself. As I came up to Hudson St., passing a Hollywood Video on my left and Blockbuster on my right, both lighting the street more than the streetlamps were, I saw a girl.

She was standing at a bus stop, which was odd for this time of night. The busses don't run that late, and she was alone, so she wasn't just passing the time there.

She was very pretty, with light skin and dark hair, and bright blue eyes. She wore a long black coat over a white shirt and a short black skirt. Her shoes were strappy heels that added about three inches to her height. Even without the heels, though, she would have been about 5'10".

She caught my eye, and looked me over for a moment. I smiled, and she smiled back, but there was something more than just a friendly smile in the corners of her mouth.

I didn't slow down, just kept walking. It was already late, and I wasn't interested in stopping right then.

I passed by her, and had gone about four paces when I heard, "Hi."
