She sat there on the steps in front of her house, head rested on her legs, gazing at the door of the house across the road. She had seen a tall girl walk into that house earlier. The tall girl had been frequently visiting his house nowadays. He always had a pleasant smile on his face whenever he opened the door for the tall girl. Even his mom seemed to be fond of that girl.
She remembered the first time she had seen him. Her family had newly moved into that street and he with his mom had come to her house to get acquainted. The moment he had seen her, he had stretched his hand out and introduced himself as Keith. She had stood there looking like a frozen sculpture, staring at him, until her mother had reminded her name was Kim. He thought she was a shy girl and had told her so. By then she knew for sure that she was in love with him.
Now she looked at the tall girl walk out of his door. He too was right behind her. Kim couldn stop smiling to herself looking at him. He was such a handsome boy. She had made up her mind that she would ask him to marry her someday. Suddenly Keith was standing very close to the tall girl and whispering in her ear. The tall girl was giggling as she walked out of the gate. Kim felt like crying. So she told herself to be brave and put a smile on her face.
Since the tall girl had already left, Kim decided to put up a brave front and go to Keith's house to tell him about her feelings for him. As she walked across to his house she decided all the things she would tell him. She was praying that the tall girl would never come back here again. She rang the bell and stood there memorizing all the words she would tell him. But when Keith opened the door, she forgot all her memorized lines and stood there just staring at him. She was very nervous now. Looking at her dazed face, he realized something very serious was running in her mind and called her in. She shook her head and told him that she would prefer sitting on the swing in the porch. She sat next to him staring down at the floor, busy fidgeting her fingers.
"So whats running in your mind sweetlin?" he asked her.
He would always tease and call her with such sweet nicknames. That was what had made her confident about his love for her. But now there was that tall girl in his life and he had hardly spoken to her since a week.
She sat there, her mind gone all blank.
"Who is that tall girl Keith?", She asked
"She is my special someone sweetlin" he replied.
Now she was fuming with anger at Keith for calling the tall girl special someone.
"What am i then?" she asked.
"You are my darling!" He replied.
"You know i dont like that tall girl. I love you!" She quietly said tears rolling down her pretty cheeks, staring at the floor unable to look at him.
Keith hugged her tightly and told her,
"My little angel, you are just 9 years old. You are too young to learn anything about love. one fine day you will grow up and learn the real magic surrounding it"
Little did he know that she would always consider him her first love ....
When you are young, Love is innocent,
In your teen, love turns into excitement,
As you grow older, you learn that love becomes a commitment!
Happy Valentines day people! :)
