I was perched on a bench and noticed this couple coming my way. The guy strutted in a self-assured sort of way, which probably had something to do with the fact his girlfriend was an amazingly pretty woman. By the many heads that turned on her wake, the boyfriend and I weren't the only ones who noticed. She was lovely all around, except for the fact she looked totally self-conscious and very uncomfortable with the attention. I looked on, thinking what a pity it was that such a pretty girl would be intimidated by her own looks. What a waste.
