Reading this prompt would bring the memory of my first crush. I’ve a few crushes when I was young from TV stars to a few boys in school. My first crush was a boy I met in seventh grade his name is Juan. He’s tall, blue eyes, a beautiful smile, and his voice was deep and romantic. When I saw him for the first time I was in love. All the girls were in love with him too. I saw him with a few girls so I was surprised when I received a note from him saying he wants to talk to me. I was excited and for the first time I felt pretty. We talk and I still remember when he told me I have pretty eyes. He asks if I want to be his girlfriend. Imagine my surprise I can even talk and of course I respond with a yes. That was a Friday afternoon. I went home excited and my mom was happy for me. I want the weekend to go fast. I can’t sleep, eat, or study my mind was around Juan.
Finally Monday came and he was waiting for me. He was cute and his smile melts my heart. He grabs my hand and we walk together. I can’t believe I was his girlfriend and I felt the jealousy of the other girls. I don’t want to get into detail by the end of the day my heart was broken. I felt stupid and embarrassed my cute relationship last only for a day. I cry until my eyes were dry off.
After this experience, I promise myself I would not have a boyfriend in school. Never, ever, ever. My second boyfriend came a few years later I was 15 and he was a neighbor but that’s another story. In the meantime, one day I was watching TV and I saw this gorgeous young man. Oh my I want to marry him. Who doesn’t? Who remembers David Cassidy?
Who was your first childhood crush? What would you say to that person if you saw him/her again?
Thanks for suggesting this prompt, Bailey T.!
