Elly the Enigma

I took Elly* to the cinema today. We have been spending quite a bit of time together these last weeks before I go. She asked me to help with her assignment at university and while originally it seemed she wanted me to DO her assignment I ended up making the english as good as possible.

Most of my friends were saying I was wasting my time and what was I getting out of it. I have taken her to the Roma St Parklands to play some guitar and we also had a few dinners together. I really enjoy her company and for better or worse I could see her as a serious girlfriend. I just hope I don't destroy the friendship that I have done in past infatuations.

Now just for a little background, Elly is the korean girl I met at the backpackers bar about a year and a half ago. I have been attracted to her pretty much from then on but she always seemed a little distant and unemotional with me. I was always feeling that if I touched her she would feel uncomfortable. We only saw each other a few times then and I even took her to my work christmas party where everyone thought she was my girlfriend.

So fast forward to now. We went to see Spiderman 3 because all the sessions of Pirates - At World's End were sold out. We had to wait an hour so we strolled around Southbank. What surprised me was she walked arm and arm with me at her initiation. Later in the theatre she wrapped around my arm and rested her head on my shoulder. I know this all sounds tame but these "change of events" almost make me want me to reconsider going to Japan.

*Elly is NOT her real name. It is in fact the name she told me for about a year before she said what her real name was. I was duped!
