*Chapter 1 - Girl meets boy*


In 1987 a small boy {aged 5} is told off at a party for putting his hand upon a small girl's knee.... the girl and boy went to the same nursery and go through Primary School not really noticing each other, preoccupied with childhood 'stuff', however their lives continue to cross paths. Appearing in each others family photos and attending the same youth clubs and activities.....


...they progress to the same secondary school, catching the same bus as they live in the same town. The girl 'notices' the boy but is a typical shy 11 year old and the boy is already a second year {would he notice her back?}


.....Fast forward 5 years:
The girl notices the boy once more, remembering those feelings, she blushes as the boy makes eye contact - he winks! The now 16 year old girl's heart flutters - did he mean that? He is like, the most popular boy at school! {Although now he has left school - he is a college boy} The girl notices she is starring, 'Opps look away quick! ....but hang on, he is starring back...and he is smiling! What does this mean?'


After what seems like hours the girl moves towards the boy, he signals it's ok by waving her over. 'Surely, he can see my body shaking?' They start talking - it's not awkward! The girl feels like melting.... the boy asks the girl to meet him again.......
June 1999: 16 & 17
