Blind Date by SBK
A/N: 2nd installment for the Richonnefics’ Date Night Series. Hope you like it.
Rick Grimes checks his watch once again, not liking the anxiety that rolls through him. He’d been talking with the young lady he was meeting for two weeks and should be glad they were finally going to see each other face to face. He specifically took the day off from work just to ensure that he wouldn’t have to rush or even get called away unexpectedly although the latter could still happen. The profession of a sheriff’s deputy could entail round the clock service if needed.
He takes a sip of his coffee, frowning as it has grown too cool to appeal to him any longer. He hadn’t realized he’d been there that long or maybe it wasn’t as warm as it should’ve been initially. He shakes his head, knowing he was distracted and why. He checks his watch again and searches the crowd for a blue dress. She said she’d be wearing a blue dress.
His eyes pop as he spots the color blue but frowns when he realizes it’s a gray haired grandmother with two kids. Nope. He didn’t really give her any identifying features about himself only that he’d be in a ball cap and jeans. He starts as a woman in a blue dress steps up to the coffee/tea counter of the sandwich shop. He tries his best to zero in on her voice, knowing he’d recognize the intonation of the woman he’s been conversing with but the noise surrounding him interferes. He decides to take in her other features to see if anything would resonate.
She waits for her order, turning to face him, her eyes zeroing in on his. He gives her a nod and turns away to search the area again. He cringes inwardly as he hopes she isn’t Michonne. For some reason, he wasn’t expecting a blonde with blue eyes. He already knows he wouldn’t be able to contain his disappointment if he is wrong.
He takes a deep breath and looks at his phone, contemplating calling her but doesn’t want to appear over eager. He decides to give her a few more minutes before he takes his leave.
