I Went To My 20th High School Class Reunion

I had heard all of the stories from older friends about their 20th high school reunions that were disappointing and nothing had changed since they were in school but I had changed so I wanted to go to mine. I was born with Charcot Marie Tooth, which now is known to be the most common neuropathic disease there is even more common than Multiple Sclerosis, and spent my whole childhood and adolescence being very insecure and unhappy. I never felt like I was attractive or desirable and then when I was 16 my family moved to a small town, from a town 100 times larger, and I instantly was one of the most popular girls in town and I was able to "reinvent" myself. I hadn't achieved the confidence I had at 38 that I was starting to learn about when I first moved to the small town but still was going to the High School that I had been going to in the larger town so I went through high school in sort of a dual identity situation. I had the well known role of shy but good student at the high school in the large town and then the after school popularity at the sites in the small town I inhabited after school and on the weekends, like the local swimming hole. After I was out of school I continued to grow and came "into my own" as an attractive smart person and began a whole new life. I was eager to go to my 20th high school reunion because it was my chance to meet the "boys" I was scared of in high school that I now had the confidence to deal with. There was a "boy" I had known ever since 6th grade when his family had moved to the town I was born in and went to school in my whole life that I had always had a crush on, and he liked me a lot and we were friends, but he was cute and popular so we never dated or did anything socially when I was in school but I always wanted to know him better. I went to that 20th high school reunion with the purpose of showing all those kids what I had become, it was a necessary thing for me to do for my own opinion my self worth. The following is my "story book" presentation of what happened at the "meet and greet" party at a local bar the night before the official class reunion event. I hope you enjoy my story and would love to hear your comments, some of my friends have told me that they wish this had happened to them at their 20th high school reunion.

SHS Class of 1975 Reunion

All of my life before this experience I thought something like this was going to happen, just didn't know the details until it did. And how could I have ever have expected that this was it?

"When he walked in the door it took her back 28 years to when the brash young boy was first walked into her classroom. She was attracted to him then, just as she was now drawn to the gorgeous man now standing in front of her.
During the course of the evening they both visited with each other as well as all of the other classmates gathered for their 20 year high school reunion.. Not paying that much apparent attention to each other yet aware of each other’s presence. Just as it had always been. How could two people be so distant to each other when it had always seemed so apparent to everyone else that they were really drawn to each other? As the evening progressed more and more people left and eventually they discussed leaving together. Still cool though.
They made small talk as she drove her sports car home and eventually they were touching each others hands as they pulled in her driveway. They walked in the door together and went to the couch. A few small moments of talking occurred where they admitted they had had a crush on each other since the fifth grade. Then they tentatively kissed and it was good! From there the clothes were ripped off and they make mad frenetic passionate love. It was as if their bodies were made to make love, every part fit perfectly, Even at 38 they both had hard bodies and youthful looks to match, neither had ever been married or had children.. Was it fate, or just circumstantial evidence. The felt like they were 10 again with all the experience and passion that living 38 years will give a person.
They spent all night in each others arms and in the morning she dropped him off at his brothers house as she had an obligation to fulfill that morning so she couldn’t find out what the natural progression of their relationship might have been.
Was this all it was destined to be or will there be another chapter?"

Feedback please.
