This Kiss
By Amanda A., Grade 9, Fredericton High, Fredericton, NB

Man, did I ever love the mornings at school. My bus came really early in the mornings so I had lots of time to hang out with my friends (and I always took time out of my bus schedule to see how the boys were looking). Well the bell just rang so I had to go up to my home room class. Oh... there he was. He was such a nice guy, and man was he ever nice looking.

I hate this weird feeling that I had every morning when I wanted to talk to him. I was so nervous and my palms were sweaty. I hope that he didn't notice. I didn't know what to do. Should I have talked to him or wait forever for him to come and talk to me? The anticipation is practically killing me. I wish that I could find out if he likes me or not. Darn, the bell just rang and I have to go to my next class. Maybe I will talk to him tomorrow.

It was a brand new day and I was ready. I was going to face my fears and talk to him. Here it goes. I walked over to his desk and I tried to say something to him, but nothing came out of my mouth. I tried to say something, but I couldn't. My mind was a blank. What was I going to say. I went and sat down in my seat. I kept thinking to myself, "he must think that I was stupid or something." I felt so stupid, urrggggg... I had the chance to talk to him and of course, I blew it again.

Then one day, I got to my desk to set down my things. I take a seat for a second, then I look up, and guess who it was. It was the guy that I have been talking about all along. He was standing there and looking right at me. I said, "Hi", hoping that I didn't screw that up. He said, "Hi", back to me. I was so nervous and I hoped that I wasn't blushing or anything. but I bet I was. We were talking for a couple of minutes and my dream came true. I could see that he felt a little bit less nervous (if that was possible). Then he said "do you want to go to the movies or something this weekend?" and of course with no hesitation I said "YES". The bell rang and I gave him my number, and told him to call me. So we went to our classes. He called me and asked me if I wanted to go to the movies with him on the weekend, I said yes.

It was finally the weekend and it was time for me to get ready to go out with him. Man, was I ever nervous. UHOH! I had no idea what to wear. I was so nervous but confident that I wouldn't screw up too bad. We got our tickets and we bought food to share. We took our seats and watched the movie. He put his arm around me and we cuddled a little bit. I had a feeling this would be the best date ever. When the movie ended I told him that I had to call my parents to come and pick me up, but he said that he could drive me. I had finally reached home, he walked to the front door, and gave me a kiss. I felt like I was Cinderella and he was my prince charming. This was the night that I had been waiting forever - since I was a little girl. Our first kiss, and I had a feeling that it wasn't our last.
