When I was a kid, maybe 11, I read a book called Catkin with this part about faeries and falling into the faery queen or whoever the lady was's deep green eyes. Being an early onset fantasy buff, I loved it of course. The same kind of scene set-up pops up all the time, in book and song, mostly in romance.
But it's never happened to me. I have never 'gotten lost' in someone's eyes, nor 'fallen into' them. And I make eye contact a lot, mostly because it's the only halfway reliable way to tame my ADD enough to hold a polite conversation. So I've always kinda wondered if it was just a massively popular over-dramatization or something, the whole thing with eyes that writers and my sister seems to have. (lol)
Hahaha, little did I know.... The object of my affection is big on eye contact while talking too, 'it's his thing' as he says, so we were looking right at each other as usual while he was telling me and another girl this story in class today, and I started to look him straight in the eye, instead of focusing on his whole face like usual. At first he seemed a bit suprised, but then you could tell he'd lost track of what he was saying for a moment, and wow...... I completely didn't see anything but his eyes and kind of hear his voice in the back of my head, which I finally had to drag to the front after a moment of forever because he was rounding up his story. And yeah, wow. Just.... wow. That was one of the strangest and yet best experiences I've ever had with a person, never mind this kid. I just hope he feels the same. ^_^
