The boy in yellow…
The universe doesn’t always get is right when it picks your first love. And to be honest I’m not even sure if he was.
What I do know is after that party for weeks this extremely tall, blonde guy would stand by our table on the good hall and just look at me.
He would say nothing.
I find out later he was pledging and he was not allowed to speak to girls.
I won’t give him a name.
Out of respect for what I’m about to share …
How do I even say all of this
How about the before?
The weeks before he was free to talk to me when I met not one but two men who in rapid succession would introduce me to things I didn’t learn in high school and also in doing so break my heart.
They didn’t know.
I think there is an assumption if you’re in college you come with experience.
Not all of us do.
So to my Kiefer Sutherland look alike. I had never spent a night at a hotel before. I had never really made out. You get the idea.
It was a night but you armed me with a little knowledge then disappeared.
Then there was my sweet brown eyed boy. You and I would break each other’s hearts on and off for four years. You never thought you were good enough for me. I never believed someone like you could want me. You tried so hard to impress my Dad and I will love you for always for that. You were a heartbreak but you don’t count because you were worth it.
I think I’m ready to introduce you to the boy in yellow….
