subject line: hello. December 07, 2015 by Hannah Brencher starbucks, usa Hello stranger, You were sitting next to me but I was too afraid to say hi. I have this fear you would blow me off before I even opened my mouth. To pay you a compliment was all I wanted to do. The way I’ve grown up-I’m not supposed to see you as beautiful but I can’t help how I feel. A problem is.... that I am a girl and so are you. I hope that you have a good life, even if I never uttered a word to you.
