Kiss, Crush, Innocence
Cafetalk asked us to write a column about our first love. When you are (starting) to get old like me, memories are often lost in to time, long forgotten, never to be remembered again. However, I will never forget my first love, my first kiss, and the innocence of childhood love.
At the time, I was 6 or 7 years old. My grade school was just one block from my house, I was lucky, I did not have to walk far to school. I was also lucky because I got to walk by Kris’s house every day on my way to school. Kris was the same age as me and in the same class as me at school. I remember her pretty smile, her blond hair and her blue eyes. I liked her from the moment I say her. You could say I had a crush on her – and I think she liked me too. One day after school, we were walking home and talking to each other as kids often do. Suddenly, I got a burst of courage and I asked her if I could kiss her, and she said yes! It was just a quick kiss, sweet and innocent, but it filled me with joy. My heart pounded and I knew I was in love.
Sadly, our first kiss was also our last kiss. I don’t remember why we never kissed again, but it was a special moment in my life. If you were to ask me who the second girl I ever kissed was, I couldn’t tell you, I’ve completely forgotten, but I will never forget my first kiss, my first love. Kris will always hold a special place in my heart.
