My Lost Love It was ever so dark that evening. It hurt to look at her. It was like looking at my heart barely beating on the floor. I couldn’t stand it. Love never hurt me this much.
I can’t believe this happened. Why me? Why her? Why us? In an instant it was over. I remember the first time we met. It was actually kind of funny. She was walking her dog.
Actually, the dog was walking her. I was reading a poem and walking along. When all of the sudden, we collided. The second I looked up into her eyes, I fell for her harder than an avalanche off of Mount Everest. I think she felt the same way because we didn’t look away for what seemed like 5 hours.
We talked in the park for about an hour and a half. She told me her name was Kristeen Thorne and told me that she was a new student at Orangeville High School; the same school I attended. We found that we had six out of seven classes together, which was a very good thing. I asked her to go out with me that Friday night. We went to the movies first, and then we went to Vinnie Vicci’s Italian restaurant.
The date was perfect and the person I was with made the date seem like Heaven. We dated non- exclusively for about one month. On our one month anniversary, I gave her my letter jacket which I earned playing varsity football. And while I did that, I asked her to date exclusively. She answered my question so fast I didn’t realize that she said yes.
We started going out together almost every weekend and talked on the phone all night and walked with each other to class everyday, and I gave her a ride to and from school everyday. We had been going out for about 3 months. The student body voted us cutest couple of the year. We had to get our pictures taken for the year book. We went to the spring dance together and were voted the king and queen of the dance.
Then the school year came to an end. That summer we spent most of the time together. We went to Kyber Lake for the Fourth of July weekend. My dad let us borrow his boat for the weekend, and we stayed at a camp ground. On Friday, when we got there, I took the boat for a test drive to see if it was still running.
It’s was working. I took her to the little secret cove that only I knew. We stayed in that cove for about 2 hours just talking and kissing and gazing at each other. At that time, the only thing I was hoping for was that this moment never would end. When I looked into her soft blue eyes, I was completely under her spell. We would stare into each others eyes and then kiss.
Her soft, tender lips caressing mine, and all I could do was watch the magic. She had this touch. It was like an angel touching my soul. We went back to camp about 9 :30 p.m. On Saturday, some friends came and camped with us for the rest of the weekend.
We were on the boat most of the time at the lake skiing, tanning, and show- boating. The summer flew by faster than light. When school started, our feelings had increased. This year we only had 3 classes together, but it didn’t affect how much we saw each other. The first few months of the school year went by really quick. Matt, my close friend, was having a Halloween party at his house. We decided to go as Romeo and Juliet.
Everyone thought our costumes were cute. Matt, the smart person he is, did not allow any beer at this party, but Kristeen and I promised each other we would never drink at parties. We all partied our hearts out, but in the end, Matt had one heck of a mess to clean up. As the year went on, we kept the romance alive. It finally got to our one year anniversary on December 17, 1998.
For our anniversary I gave her a 1 karat diamond necklace, and she gave me a 24 karat chain and in the middle of the chain were both of our names connected with two hearts. Christmas came around and everyone was in a holiday mood. My family celebrated Christmas with a family reunion, and Kristeen’s family went to Sacramento to visit her grandparents. When everyone came back to Orangevillie all of our friends exchanged gifts. I gave Kristeen a 1 month old tan cocker spaniel, it had a bow around its neck and was put in a hand woven basket, for Christmas. She gave me a fluffy blue Tommy Hilfiger feather down jacket.
I spent Christmas with her. We went to the park. It was snowing. The snow, so white, made me realize what I had. I was the luckiest man in the world.
I had someone who cared about me. Someone who understood my problems. Most of all, I had someone who I could snuggle with in the coldness of the harsh winter. I had true love! New Year’s Eve came around, and our relationship couldn’t be going any better than it was. Matt, our party hardy friend, had another one of his parties. We counted down the New Year, and we sealed 1998 with a long, sweet, tender, romantic, never-ending kiss which carried over to 1999.
After the party, Kristeen and I stayed to help Matt clean up his house. We felt sorry for his unfortunate break up with Lauren. After we cleaned house, Kristeen and I couldn’t help but kiss each other. You know that feeling you get when your with the one you love and you just started a new year, and how you can’t keep your hands off of each other. It’s that feeling you get when you …
