That day in history, the day we connected, you, with your acne prone face and soft flaxen hair, me, with my frizzy brown curls and wire rimmed glasses. I didn’t know then, that in just a few years, you’d be my savior, my lover, my tormentor, my teacher.
I knew it was impossible; that your loud, obnoxious self could ever want me, an annoying, yet shy girl. But, I still found you impossible to resist. Back then, I only wanted you to be happy.
