Who would not be amused to see a man who has greyed a bit, lost some hair, with face wrinkled of worldly cares, look around with adolescence peeping out of his eyes?
But when she realised that his adolescence was actually seeking her, her face paled and then reddened; then his eyes sought her out and he rejoiced finding her heart filled to the brim.
For most women, it is like that. When after many years, a woman is sought out by a man’s eyes, and when she is sure they were indeed seeking her and her alone, she will find her heart brimming. That is of course one good thing about women.
