some kids are actually gonna be like this you do realize that
You want to know what’s weird? One day you wake up, it’s a completely normal day… You go fill your car up with gas, you go to lunch with your mom, you check your phone. You have the same text messages from your friends, from the guys tryin’ to holla… Nothing it different. It’s the same thing that happens everyday. You feel the same, you might have a smile on your face but you feel normal.
But then you go through that same gas station drive thru and it’s like the world just started spinning. You catch his eye… A person that you’ve known for years and its just like all of a sudden you feel the pull. The pull tells you to track down his phone number and to ask him to hang out.
Really though? Me…. Making anything that resembled a first move? Not my style. But I did it anyways. I was scared when I asked, I won’t lie to you. I’m still scared honestly. I was like, “oh, he’ll make some excuse up not to hang out with me…” But then my phone lit up and he agreed that we should.
Now between the point of him accepting and until we did hang out, I was scared to death of him flaking out on me. How stupid does that sound?
Back to the weird feeling. I’ve felt something like this before in my 21 years of existing. But this time it’s just different. When this kid sat next to me on the couch I felt so oddly complete. I was so happy. I literally had the best time of my life doing nothing.
But the most intense feeling came when the night turned into morning. I had spent several hours laying with him on this couch, his head on a pillow in my lap, sound asleep. I could see the curve of his lip and his steady breathing. That was when the feeling swelled inside my chest and that’s when I knew that I had to have him. He had to be mine.
This sounds so weird to write. It almost sounds like I’m obsessed…. Maybe I am. But whatever I am, it’s the happiest that I’ve been in years. Even if it never turns into something more that night will forever be my favorite memory.
