I Was 14..

My first kiss took place near the end of my freshman year of high school. Since middle school I had been friends with a girl named Shelby, and in October of 9th grade I happened to meet her best friend, Jacie Albin. Over the course of a few weeks of hanging out at lunch (with Shelby and a bunch of our other friends), and lots of texting and talking on facebook, I developed a HUGE crush on Jacie. Unfortunately, when I mentioned it to Shelby, she told me that Jacie didn't feel the same way about me, and that I should get over her so neither of us got hurt. I was heartbroken, naturally. But I took Shelby's advice, and tried to bury my feelings for Jacie. She and I were such good friends already, and I didn't want to ruin that. A few months went by, and I went through brief periods of having minor feelings for other girls at my school, but underneath those, Jacie was always on my thoughts. At the beginning of Spring break that year (some time in April), I told Jacie how I felt about her. I was braced for her to sadly tell me that she didn't like me in the same way, and I only really wanted closure on the issue. But her response (after acting surprised that I liked her, as I'm sure she knew), was "Confession.... I really like you too..." It turned out that Jacie had liked me just as long as I'd liked her, but she hadn't told Shelby. Shelby, at this time, was in Mexico on a cruise. We discussed openly whether it would be too wierd for us to go out, and agreed that it wouldn't. We went to a movie a few days later, and during the movie, though she was sitting next to me with her head on my shoulder, I texted her and said "Look over here." She took her phone from her pocket and read the message, and slowly turned her head towards me. I leaned in, and we kissed, and it was the best moment of my entire life. I never technically asked her out, but we were a couple by the time we had left the theater. We've been going out for three months, and they've been the best three months anyone could experience. ♥
