When I first saw her, she was eating her lunch on the bench.

When I saw her again a couple of minutes later, she changed her pose and was thinking deeply.

She looked at her phone every minute. But she didn’t do anything with her phone.

She seemed waiting a message from someone.

But it was just my guess.

I sometimes do the same thing. I check my phone,

but don’t do anything because I wait a message from someone.

It sometimes ends up bringing pain, but it itself is beautiful

because at least the moment of waiting has hope and expectation for future joy.
