I noticed her when I was waiting the subway at Sörnäinen.
The station was quiet and the monitor showed four minutes before our ride would arrive. Her face was familiar to me as I had seen her many times before. I assumed she also recognized me although we had never talked.
I thought it would be stupid to just stand there silent for four minutes and pretend not to notice her on the empty platform so I approached her. I blurted out something idiotic like: “I guess I just have to say something to you since there i
s absolutely nothing else for us to do for four minutes.”
She smiled.
We`ve been living together for 14 months now.
