Letter one 6/11/18
I know you find it strange that this letter was hand delivered to you by my sister. I could not trust that your parents would get a hold of it and you would never get to read it.
Please forgive me for taking so long to write to you. It took me three days to get all my feelings together to write this letter.
When I first met you, I didn’t like you very much. I thought you were stuck-up and arrogant. I used to call you poo-poo head when you weren’t around. I was six, what did you expect?
But I digress…
It wasn’t until high school when I realized how I really felt about you. You were dating Tommy at the time and my heart reconciled itself that we would never be together. It just wasn’t meant to be. Then the day came that he broke your heart. There you were, sitting on the swing hanging from the old oak tree behind the school, crying your eyes out. I was afraid to approach you. I didn’t know what to say, how to make you feel better about what happened. I felt… useless. I was about to walk away and leave you to your misery and sorrow, but I just couldn’t. The urge to make things better, overwhelmed me.
I went over to you and said the stupidest thing I could have said. I said; “Are you okay?”
A floodgate of tears came and I was so shocked and scared. All I could do is hold you and try to reassure you that everything would be all right…
The next thing I knew, we kissed under that tree. It was my very first kiss… It was so… nice.
I know you know all this, but I had to write it all out. I needed to remind me of the timeline between then and now…
I didn’t leave of my own volition. My parents found out about how I felt about you and they sent me away to live with my aunt. I know my parents and yours had a confrontation about us. It was all over town. I found myself on a bus a few days later.
My sister tells me that you’re not dating anyone. You just sit at home and languish. Please, don’t.
Languish… not date!
Soon, I will be of age to make my own way and my own decisions… all I ask, is that if you love me like I love you… wait for me.
I await your reply.
Keep this letter in a safe place. Don’t let your parents find it.
