I fell in LOVE

With a pair of shoes.
Wait! Not just a pair of shoes, Sperry Top-Siders that are black with clear sequins and purple silk inside...
It was freaken love at first sight.
I mean seriously it was like I was falling in love with someone, which is freaky because this is a shoe not a human being that can love me back. Although I could have sworn that at one point in my entranced state I started hearing the Sperry calling my name.
IDK for all I knew it could have been my mother who was whining in the background because she was tired and, of course, naturally bitchy.
Of course.
My mother referred the shoe as a "Michael Jackson" shoe. I was like "Uh, hello? Didn't everyone copy his style, even now." At first I admit I was a bit wary, when isn't anybody when they're in love? And casually asked the shoe salesmen for a pair in my size only to later found out they had no more in that size but to look around because they had a lot of other shoes. I was like, "Thanks." but surprisingly I was incredibly hostile, the now continuous burning in my chest when in the presence, thinking, or talking about this shoe gave me then lit... What I really wanted to tell the douche was, "Fuck you!" I was dishearten but I still managed to drag my mother to Dillard's from Journey's and there I saw them again.
And here is another one of my reenactments by yours truly (note: I embellished a bit, if you don't like it, suck it)
Mother: I don't know why you're so hell bent in searching for these ugly shoes, your don't even have enough money right not (Christmas money my godparents and my own general savings, I told you I would help you buy them but you'll have to wait until my next paycheck. You can wait a few days. If you see them here and they have your size it's only going to hurt you even more when you have to leave them here.
Me: I know, but I need to just see if Dillard's has them in the first place (secretly I just wanted to put them on my feet, see if the connection rang true... kind of like a kiss).
I should warn you this is going to get weird.
My mother entered the shoe area filled with many designer brands like, Uggs, Coach... that's all I can think of on the top of my head.
And them I saw them.
Here plays the song "Reunited" by Peaches & Herb:
Me: (Like Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City) Hello, lover!
Black Sperry Top-Sider: (says my name), I am so glad to see you again...
Me: Me, too! I thought I might not see you again (I blush shyly). I mean I hoped but apparently I wasn't the only one... (a hint of jealousy paints my voice)
Sperry Top-Sider: Shhh... No more words, my love, please just take me!
Me: Right here? Right now? I don't even have my size yet. I'm not that kind of girl that just takes a shoe from the display rack and puts it on my feet in front of everyone!
Sperry Top-Sider: Hurry than (it begs)! Before I'm all gone.
I hurry to the salesmen and ask for my size and soon I have them in my hands and hardly a second later they're on my feet.
I feel on cloud nine, I see fireworks, almost a rush to my head!
And then I choke up a bit.
Sperry Top-Sider: My love, what is wrong? Do you not feel right with me? We fit perfectly, don't we?
Me: Yes, we do. You're perfect. We're perfect. Together we are one... but not right now. my mother was right, I should have never came, now I have to leave you here where anybody can just take you away from here! I don't want to let you go!
Sperry Top-Sider: My love do not cry (it says soothingly). This might not have been the right time but we have met, you should be happy, I know I am. We will meet again. If it is meant to be we will be together one day.
Me: I hope so. I won't be able to rest until you are on my feet again. I promise, my love (I tell it earnestly).
Sperry Top-Sider: Please don't forget me, (says my name).
Me: Never!
I give them back to the shoe salesman and tearfully flee out of the store, my mother rolling her eyes as she follows behind me.
I wait a few days for my mother to get her next paycheck only for a monster storm that consumes the whole Midwest arrives and delays my leaving the house whatsoever. Yet when I finally do come back to Dillard's there they are again, waiting.
Sperry Top-Sider: Oh, my love... you have finally come back for me.
Me: Just like I promised! I would have been her sooner but there was this terrible snow storm-
Sperry Top-Sider: Yes...
Me: What's wrong? You're distant.
Sperry Top-Sider: I am so sorry, my love. (pick up the Sperry's and head for the salesman) I had no choice! Please believe me!
Salesman: Oooo, sorry. That's our last pair.
I look at the size, they're 6.5
Here plays "Grenade" by Bruno Mars.
Sperry Top-Sider: I had no choice...
Me: I don't blame you, my love. Those Cretans (I says murderously)! I swear to you Sperry I will not rest until I find you again in my size and you are mine! I swear it!
And here I am now, a week later with still no Sperry's, they're all sold out for now though Macy's should have a new shipment soon...
And there was my story, a story about two lovers, separated indefinitely.
