Lost & Found: Valentine Blog Hop!
Decided to resurrect my blog on Saturday, saw this on Sunday and signed up!
If you click on the badge it'll take you to the list, have a browse :) It's all about love - a true story; fiction; poetry; or a special song. Must be worth a bit of blog hopping! I plan to visit everyone (might take more than one day!)
I was 16 and working at a Little Chef in my spare time while I was at college. And I met 'Him', the first boy that made my stomach turn somersaults. He was 2 years older and had that typical bad boy look and attitude. I went to a Catholic all girls school - how was I not going to fall for Him? Sadly He belonged to someone else so we remained friends. He left a few months later and life moved on. Had a few casual boyfriends, but none that made me feel like He did.
He came in to eat 6 months later and those butterflies just went into overdrive. He asked me out. I said I couldn't, I was dating someone. He said he would never ask again,
One Thursday I got a phone call from work to ask if I could go in and cover as they were short staffed. After hours clearing up I was catching up with the other girl Joanne as we tended to work opposite shifts; and we started chatting about Him. How I wished nearly every day I hadn't said no and we wondered how He was doing.
That night a car crashed into Joanne's back garden. It was packed with teens. One died. Him.
My first love. The last words he ever said to me. And dying in the garden of the person I was working with the same evening. Was just too much.
Sounds like something from that Fake or Fiction TV series? Only it's true and breaks my heart whenever I think of it.
