It had been 10 years since I walked through the doors of the old high school. I wasn’t sure how I made it through the four years I had to be here, so I wasn’t quite sure why I was about to enter the doors again on my own free will.
After months of encouragement from my friends, hair and nail appointments,training and anything else I could do to make myself look better, I agreed. I was almost positive I could survive one night of reminiscing about my non eventful high school career. The thing I was having the most problem with, however, was the chance that I might run into Jeff.
Jeff was every girls dream in school. He was quarterback on our football team, and he would melt you with his smile. He was all of that, yet he was my best friend.
I didn’t date anyone serious in high school so I was considered a threat to anyone that Jeff was dating. Even though we both stood our ground that we were only friends, and that wasn’t going to change. The girls would eventually break up with him and blame it on me.
It continued this way all 4 years. Things changed on graduation night. We both were attending the same party and decided to drive together. I was leaving a few days later for New York and He was leaving to go to California. It was a night to celebrate.
We partied,drank,danced and laughed until about 2am, then we decided to call it a night. On the drive home I realized that he had turned down the dirt road that ran behind our houses.
“Jeff, did you forget where we live?” I felt the butterfly’s in my stomach as he pulled the car over. The next thing I knew his lips were on mine. It was a kiss I had always imagined and wanted. It was perfect.
That was the last time I saw him, that is, until tonight.
