The reason I ran into Marius was because I was watching someone else.
I saw the man with the bright red vest, speaking his words of passion, looking more beautiful than anything I had ever seen in my entire life. His brown hair tossed in the wind, his bright blue eyes sparkled with passion and enthusiasm. He spoke with bravery and power, speaking of a glorious new future that all would delight in. He looked well off and looked incredibly intelligent, with a bright personality and genuine caring for all those below him. Simply looking at him made my heart tremble.
I was watching him walk away, wondering if I should follow him and talk to him. I wondered what it would be like to talk to him, to ask him about himself and his plans. Would he ignore me and stride forward, or would he find the time to speak to me? It was in my steps to follow him and in my indecision that I ran into Marius. I almost completely forgot the revolutionary the moment I looked into Marius' eyes. Almost.
Sometimes when I am about to go to bed, curling up next to my Marius, I wonder what would have happened if I had run after the boy in the red vest.
What do you think would happened if she had gone with Enjolras? Review and tell me what you think!
