The Perfect Beginning
Ok, I just wanted to get something off my chest. Iguess you could call it the perfect beginning. But anyway, here goes:
We had been friends for what seemed like forever. We had helped each other through our own relationships and also through some drama of life. We had common interests and we supported each other in everything we did. It wasn’t like we were close in a way that we knew everything and anything about each other but we were close enough that it felt like we truly knew each other. At one point in our lives we were both single. I knew that he was either looking for a girlfriend willing to recipricate the effort he put into a relationship or no girlfriend at all. I was look for the same, it never even crossed our minds that it would be a perfect macth. It was a complicated time for the both of us. We gree closer and people began to notice things and say how we were cute together and would be a cute couple but we both brushed these comments off. As expected the thoughts began to linger in my mind and I started to imagine what things would be like if something ever did happen. I never, for a second, thought he might be having the same ideas. At the same time, he decided to like someone else and make it very obvious. This killed me inside, I’m not gonna lie. But that ended and once again we were back where we always ended up, close friends but nothing more. We became so close that doing things couples would normally do seemed completely normal. One day we were stuck at school after everyone had left and it was beginning to get cold and dark. We were sat in the parking lot and he put his coat and arms around me to keep me warm.I laid my head on his shoulder and i felt completely at home. As we looked at the stars, we talked about the screwed up world we lived in and how on earth we were going to survive it. He turned my shoulders so we were nose to nose and he looked me deep in the eyes. Without saying anything i knew what was about to happen. He leaned in close, pulled the hair out of my face and kissed me. At first it was gentle and soft. But it became deep, like we couldnt get enough of each other, we were the only people in the world as the night time melted away. It didnt last long but it didnt have to. We stayed there for a long time in silence, just watching the stars and hearing the crickets chirping around. Finally it was too late to ignore the parent calls and i was just about to pick up my things. He grabbed me quickly, yet softly, once more before i could get up. He said to me, “I want to survive this world with you and i dont think i could do it anyother way”. At that moment i realized that I had loved him for what seemed like forever. And finally, he loved me back.
