I hung out with my friend and his gf for a bit earlier today and we talked and chilled and other stuff and then talked and chilled and laughed and laughed and laughed. After they left around 11 I found myself still in too giggly of a mood to go to sleep, so I decided to see how well I could jog around campus while in this state.
As I was passing the third of the route which borders a densely forested area I saw a deer. I didn’t think much of it aside from “oh neat, its like a wild pokemon but in real life” and continued along my way.
Could you believe this adorable motherfucker started running by my side for a good 5 minutes. I’ve never seen deer on campus regard humans with anything but caution and yet this guy decided to come along on my trip so jubilantly.
Unfortunately once we reached a major road which divides that section of campus from its more developed region s/he halted and just stared as I ran away.
I waved goodbye but I doubt deer understand human hand gestures. Locking eyes with it though felt so magical, I felt like the connection was so mutual and it was just beautiful.
eheu I hope that deer has a good life
