Metting The Love Of My Life
After being homeschooled for two years (7th and 8th grade) I went back to public school. Now being in high school I wasn't sure what to expect. I wasn't sure if my old friends would remember me or not, or if I would have to make new ones. It was hard at first but I got used to it. I joined a program called JROTC also known as Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps, I then joined Drill Team (after school program to become more involved in the program) this was the first time meeting Steven Matthew Karr. He tried to talk to me, but I didn't know what to say! I was a very shy person then... Soon I quit Drill Team right before Christmas break. That meant no more seeing nor talking to him. Sophmore year came and I decided to get back on Drill Team, this time I had to be at school at 5:40 A.M. This also meant I got to see and talk to Matt again! We talked for about a month, and every night on facebook. He told me I was beautiful and how great of a friend I was! I asked him if he would sit with me on the bus when we went on a JROTC field trip, he said yes!!! I was so nervous! He held out his hand like he wanted me to hold his hand, I was so nervous I don't know what I was thinking I grabbed his hand! I know my palms must have been sweaty considering he let go and wiped his hand off, I thought that maybe I got the wrong impression and he didn't want to hold hands. Then, to my suprise he grabbed my hand! We held hands for such a long time, we both kept having to let go and wipe off our hands. I could tell he was nervous just like me! We got back to school and talked about the day. I wanted him to ask me out! His friends kept on at him to ask me out, he finally got them to leave him alone. But, it wasn't like we were by ourselves... he kept comparing a poster to a picture of Military ribbons. He kept pacing back and forth and I just kept watching him and then he whispered "Will you go out with me?", my wish had come true. But, what did I say? Well if you are wondering I said, "What did you say?" What?!? Why did I say that! Why did I not say yes?! He said it a little bit louder but, still he whispered. So I kept on saying, "What did you say?" He finally stoped whispering, and asked me. Of course I said, yes! I mean why wouldn't I; he was handsome, sweet, believed in God, and treated me like a lady! He was perfect! It was official! Matt and me were finally together! Of course I never thought that me and him would have been together this long! But we have been and we are still going strong! Even though now we live about 70 miles apart because of my family taking in my grandpa, and there were no houses big enough and in our price range... I only get to see him once a week but, it has made us stronger! We have been together for 1 year, 8 months, and 14 days! He is the love of my life and my best friend! I don't know what I would do without him!
