The Story Of Us Prologue Have you ever experienced that love
The Story Of Us Prologue
Have you ever experienced that love at first
sight feeling? Where you just look at someone... And suddenly all
of the world's problems seem to go away? You're probably
sitting there shaking your head and thinking Is this chick on
something? And trust me, if I read this a year ago, I'd
be right there with you. But... Then I met Aaron. And that's
when everything changed.
I had just started freshman year at Saint Mary's school. I
was the new kid, butting into a school where everyone had known
each other since kindergarten. Scary, right? Yep. I already knew
two girls, but they were really annoying and not the type I could
survive the year with as my only friends. I was on the lookout
from the start for new friends.
At the time, however, I had only been in school for a week, and
hadn't had any real luck insta-bonding with anyone yet. That
afternoon, I was planning on trying out for the school play, so I
was hoping to meet some people that way. Unortunately, before the
after-school tryouts, I had to survive through our
school's monthly mass. The mass, I had heard, was two
hours of torture, with our ancient preist and being forced to be
silent the whole time. I was not looking forward to it,
especially since the only people I had to sit next to were the
only two girls I knew, Maria and Bethany.
As Maria, Bethany and I settled into our seats for the mass, I
spotted someone. And not just a someone... A cute
someone. He was sitting in the front row alone. I stared at the
back of his head, questioning why he wasn't with the rest of
the school. I was pretty sure he wasn't in my grade since I
had never seen him before, but then again, I hadn't seen a
lot of people. When the mass began and everyone began to quiet
down, I saw him stand up, and go up and say the call to worship.
I looked down at the program in my hands and saw that his name as
Aaron Thomas. I tapped Maria on the shoulders and pointed at
"Who's that?" I asked her. She snickered and rolled
"Aaron Thomas, the geek of the tenth grade," she
"He's cute," I said quietly. She gave me a wierd
look, but didn't say anything else.
All during the mass, I thought about Aaron. He really was cute..
He was tallish, with hair that was shaggy and chocolate brown,
hazel eyes, and tan skin. I couldn't tell whether he had abs
or not because the school's uniform hid anything worth
showing off, but I didn't really care whether he did or not.
All I knew was that I wanted to get to know him.
After the longest two hours of my life, the mass finally ended,
and we went back to homerooms to get ready for dissmissal. I
tried to spot Aaron on the way back, but I couldn't see him.
Sighing, I sulked back to my homeroom to pack up. I'd
probably never see him again... Might as well forget about
Boy, if only I had known how wrong I was.
