Cliched, High School Sweethearts :)We were friends that decided we liked each other enough to go out. Made out countless times and then his friend tried to get me in trouble and kiss him too. Rumors were spread and my boyfriend broke up with me because he thought I cheated on him. He didn't speak to me for 2 whole weeks. Our friendship was completely ruined. Finally I got up the courage to call him and start some meaningless conversation. I just wanted to be in his life again. Just be his friend. 2 weeks later our friendship was restored, mainly because he was able to hear my side of the story, not the rumors that were going around. We would talk everyday and the old feelings started to emerge. I wanted to be with him again.
One night we were betting on a football game between the Panthers and the Cowboys. I always pull for the Panthers and I will always hate the Cowboys (he loves them) so his terms were if he won he got $10. If my Panthers won I wanted a kiss :) we agreed on the terms and my heart was pumping throughout the entire game. Well my panthers unfortunately lost :(
The next morning I was talking to him on the phone and of course he was gloating so I called him a stupid head (yeah I was a cool kid back then lol). He told me that I wouldn't say it to hid face and my response was "you wanna bet on it?" :) so we bet on it. I asked him what the terms were and he said "the same terms from last night". So the moment I saw him in the hallway and just went up to him and said "stupid head" and smiled really big because I knew I was going to get a kiss :) but he just smiled back at me and walked to class. The ******* was making me wait and I just smiled and went to class also :)
The next time I saw him was at lunch and I was so anxious. But he barely paid me any attention so in my mind I felt that he wasn't really wanting to kiss me and I wasn't going to be pushy and make a scene. In my mind I deserved it for putting him through hell even though I didn't do anything wrong. So lunch ended and I was gathering my books to go to my last class of the day and he comes up beside me and he just said "Alyssa, I think I owe you this" and he grabbed my chin and gave me the kiss I will never forget. The cafeteria noise all faded away. My friends standing around staring melted into blobs of color. My knees were weak and I dropped my books. He released me from his spell that was that amazing kiss and I didn't know how to recover, so like the dork that I am, I started blubbering like an idiot and he laughed and smiled at me. The rest of that day I didn't pay attention and I just looked down and smiled to myself. Everyone was asking my friend what was up wit me and he just said "she was kissed, that's it". But it was more than just a kiss. Looking back on it now I know that kiss would have changed the rest of my life.
I did not know at the kiss that I would be with him for the rest of my life. I didn't know that this boy would turn into the man of my dreams. I didn't know that 5 years later I would be married to this boy, turned Marine, turned man. I didn't know that I would marry my high school sweetheart. That kiss changed my entire life. And I'm the luckiest girl in the world because of that one amazing, knee weakening, breathtaking kiss :)
