Hey everyone, hope you have had an amazing day. I’ve had a rough day, I’m still thinking about Rose… I miss her so much, words can’t describe what I’m feeling right now. But, in order to cheer us all up, I’m going to talk about my incredible girlfriend!
I met her in September 2017. It was the first day at a new school, and we were both starting 8th grade. I was the first person in our classroom, and I choose a seat in the very front of the class. A few other people walked in, and then there was her. The most beautiful girl I had ever seen. She took a seat in the back of the classroom, diagonal from where I was seated. I tried not to stare but my eyes just kept wandering back to her.
There was something about her that caught my attention. It wasn’t her clothes or her hair, her style or her glare, it was her eyes and her smile. Wide and wondrous. Filled with adventure. She was perfect in every single way, and before that moment I didn’t think perfect existed.
The first time we actually met was at recess the following week. It all started when a friend of mine asked me to hang out with her. I thought nothing of it, she was in a different class there was no way they’ve already met. I was wrong.
Another friend of mine introduced me to her and the other boys that were there. Her name is Shaylah. That day was incredible. And so were the next 3 months. It all got real on Nov. 11th, when I finally told 2 of my best friends that I had a huge crush on her. Then, a week later a different friend got a girlfriend. She was in a good mood and wanted to play truth or dare. Of course, she asked the classic “Who do you like?”. I answered honestly. The next dare was a lot riskier, “I dare you to tell Shay I like her.”. I’m not sure what I was thinking at that point, probably that I would never have the nerve to tell her myself.
The next day was a Monday, so school was starting back up. She replied to the like “Wait, Kayla? Our Kayla? Kayla Z? Hmm, tell her I need to talk to her.”. And that morning, the girl that gave me butterflies whenever she said my name, asked me to be her girlfriend. Me. Of all people, me.
Later that day, we told our friends and they told their friends. By the end of Nov. 21st, 2017 everyone in 8th grade at our school knew we were a thing.
Shaylah and I have been dating for just over a year now. We are very happy together and she still makes me queasy whenever we are alone, but it’s great feeling now. She’s an incredibly smart girl who makes me the luckiest girl alive.
