PR- Too Young To Know
- It was about three weeks later I was walking home from school. I always walked home from school. I always took the same path, always walked by myself, and I actually liked it. It gave me time to think about all of the wonderful things I was going to do when I have the opportunity to get out of this place. I stopped at the convenience store on the corner of Jefferson and Lexington and I went in and I bought myself some candy because my grandmother had given me a little extra money that week and when I stepped outside he was on his way in and we almost ran into each other. It felt so right. He smiled at me again and asked me if I was in a rush or if I would mind if he walked me the rest of the way home. As we walked home he held my backpack and I held his hand and he told me all about him. He was from a small town right outside of where I was from. He was amazing. He made me laugh and he walks me straight to the door and he gave me a hug and then he kissed me and gave me this barrette for my hair and I still wear to this day.
