there's no real
love in you

Sometimes, the way people talk may not be the way they carry themselves when they are with you.
Have you experienced that before? I have.
Yesterday, I went to meet the seller of the item which I ordered online. Yup, she's a girl. The reason why I agreed to meet up with her to collect the item, although she's a stranger is cos:
1) She's a girl. (Not a guy)
2) Our meet up place was in Tampines MRT
The meet up place was fine, at least it's not a secluded and private area where she could just take my money and run away, it's at a big open and very crowded public venue. We agreed to meet at 630pm, and it was peak hour time, just the time that people return home from work.
Also, I was going to meet my project group at Bedok, so that's really convenient for me. I wouldn't have to bother about extra charges like the postage fee.
When she replied my order email the other day, she gave me her phone number.
I noticed that she told me to SMS her, so I did.
I told her what time and date I wanted to meet, and asked her where exactly was most convenient for her.
She replied, outside Guardian. At first, from her messages she sounded really sincere and kind, like a really sweet sounding lady.
Her SMSes were peppered with ^_^ and [: or (:
Judging from the way she talked, and the way she asked me questions like, "You still in school?", "Still schooling?" and "How's school life?", I would have thought she was about 20 plus.
On my way there, we exchanged conversation through SMS, and I thought she was really cheerful, personable and friendly. I couldn't wait to meet up with her, to see how she was like.
However, when I met up with her - I realised I made a mistake!
The last SMS she sent me was, "What colour top are you wearing?" so that she could recognise me.
I replied, orange with a white cardigan.
When I went up to Guardian, and waited at exactly 7pm, I realised that I was the only one there. I was looking out for a lady..
"Hmmm, have you reached yet?" I messaged her.
"Yup, I'm here already. ^^" she sent back.
I looked around. And suddenly, I saw a really petite girl come up to me. She looked about Sec 1.
She came up to me and looked up to me, and suddenly, when I always knew that I was very short, I felt quite tall.
"Oh, I'm so sorry!" I apologised, not really knowing what to say. "I didn't know you were here, So... This is the item?"
She looked at me wide-eyed as though I was silly for asking such a dumb question, yah of course this is the item lah, else I pass to you for what?
"Erm, it's 5.90 right?" I double-confirmed. I looked into my wallet and checked. "Just right, I have the exact amount!"
She took the money, handed me the item and walked away.
I immediately walked off too, kinda awkwardedly but not really wanting to be there cause the whole situation seemed so awkward. Haha.
After I walked off, I opened the package and checked it. Yup, it was right.
Oh wells. What an unusual first time meeting, just to collect my purchase.
I might ask for mail postage next time.
