We were sitting on the porch swing four months away from High school graduation. Reality was slowly sinking in and in my heart I knew what I wanted to be. Unfortunately I have kept this a secret. I couldn’t even tell her until today.

“So have you thought about what you want to do? You keep saying you don’t know but it seems you are too afraid to tell me. It’s like pulling teeth with you at times and it’s getting a bit fucking old.”

I glanced at her and paused.

“I will be back in a second.”

I went upstairs to open up the drawer to the nightstand. I stared at my notebook for a few moments and the fear for a moment disappeared. I came back to the porch swing and handed it to Allie.

“Open it up to page 15 and read.”

For the last year I watched your face illuminate. For the last year I have wondered what it would be like to kiss your lips. For the last year I have hidden a secret. For the last year somewhere at some point I have fallen in love with you. I was never afraid to feel but always feared the fall. For the last year I have thought about our future not just mine. For the last year I have imagined my life with you.

“This is beautiful, so what are you trying to tell me Ben?”

“I want to be a writer and I love you with all my heart.”

Allie was speechless.
