She was upset, lonely, depressed, scared and many other things words could not describe. She went away for the summer and the first day that's when it happened. She met someone who made her smile. Not just a fake one. After a couple of days of getting to know him, she would laugh continuously, and she found herself smiling whenever he was around. She began to realize it wasn't a fake smile or laugh.
Scared is what she felt when he reached for her hand for the first time. She wasn't used to feeling this way. Months went by, she liked him more and more. Soon she was meeting his parents, and hanging out with him after school and on weekends. This was the first time she has liked someone THIS much. Her parents talked about him a lot and invited him out with them during family events. This is the first time in a long time that she has been happy and has been herself. He asked her out and she said yes, and he called her beautiful. Butterflies are what she felt when he kissed her for the first time. This is the first time in a long time she's been looking forward to classes so she can see him in the hallway. This is the first time in a long time she has been okay. This is the first time in a long time she has been loved to be herself.
