It still feels like a dream
(Carpinteria, CA, USA )
Back in 8th grade I had crush on a boy in my 5th period History class. We would always flirt with each other. Then towards the end of our 8th grade year he just stopped going to my school and I never heard from him again.
It is the end of my 11th grade year and i was on the bus on my way home when there he was, stepping onto the bus right in front of me. At first I couldn't believe it, I was so happy. Then right behind him was a girl that i go to school with. They sat right in front of us and the whole ride home was awkward and quiet.
A couple days later he wrote me on Facebook telling me he had missed me and hadn't seen me in forever. We began catching up. He told me why he left my school then he told me something that made my heart drop...he was dating HER! I didn't understand why I was jealous, I mean I shouldn't be I, don't even know him anymore, yet I still was.
I had wanted to date him all through middle school and I hated the fact that I never got the chance. I wanted to be in her place. As we started talking more and more feelings started coming back and he admitted he liked me in 8th grade too. He told me that his girlfriend was treating him like crap and it hurt me to see him sad.
A few days later he told me to go outside my house, there he was, standing there, he wrapped his arms around me and whispered in my ear, "she isn't the one for me, and i never got the chance to be with you like i wanted to... Will you be my girlfriend?" I didn't even have the chance to reply, before I knew it his lips were pressed against mine.
He asked me to be his girlfriend on 02-24-10. Who would have ever guessed that we would have fallen in love <3. It still feels like a dream and I keep waiting to wake up.
