Summer Melanie Moreno CP English 1 Mr. Kuchar It was a cold january day back in 2008, that was when she first laid my eyes on him. You could say it was love at first sight but that may not be how others saw it. This is a story about a girl named Kelsey Her best friend Declan had text messaged her to go to the local park where every one hang out. When she arrived he was already there with 3 people Randy, Stephanie and Oliver. Oliver is Declan’s older brother and that day was the first time they met. She remembers how he was wearing a black sweatshirt blue jeans and sneakers.
They didn’t talk that day though, not yet. That very next morning she woke to a message that made her smile, it was from him. Apparently he had gotten my number from Declan because he just had to talk to her. So they started talking and it went on for months, all the way up until June. That was when her best friend crystal started talking too him. Never had she told anyone that she had feelings for him so she could understand why she began to like him, but it still hurt me. I couldn’t believe he had started talking to her friend so I called him to talk. Hey oliver, how are you? I mean we haven’t talked in a few days and I heard that your now talking to Crystal, like what’s up with that? ” said Kelsey. “Hey, well yeah you could say we were talking I mean I like her alot. ” said Oliver. Just like that Kelsey had felt like she had her heart was ripped out of her chest. “But what happened between us I mean I thought we had something, I can’t be imagining this can i? ” “We should talk later, i’ve got to go bye” She realized that the phone call had left her more confused than before and she regretted it more than anything.
One thing she did not regret was her love for him. She waited days for his call until suddenly she decided that she would call him, “Hello, Oliver? hey yeah its me Kelsey how’s everything going? ” exclaimed Kelsey. “Hey yeah everything is good what about you? Look I’m sorry I didn’t call you back the other day I’ve just been thinking about our situation. But hey want to hang out today, I have the house to myself everyone went out. ” “Okay around what time should I be over? ” “Come whenever your ready, i’ll be waiting. ”
She rushed to get ready in excitement for my big day ahead with Oliver, but than realized that conversation had left her with more questions as well. Did that mean he and crystal would stop talking? What had he decided on their situation? These were all questions she decided she would have to ask him today. She took a right and was on cozzens lane, this was the street he lived on. She made her way up the driveway and proceeded to call him to open the door. When their eyes met he ran up to her with arms wide open for a big bear hug.
She than followed him into his house straight into his living room. When we got there he looked into my eyes and led her to the couch. He than leaned in and softly kissed her lips and it was everything she had ever hoped it to be. That was her first kiss, and she than knew he would be her first love. They spent the evening together until she had to leave. When she was walking out the door he kissed her gently on the cheek and whispered “ Don’t tell Crystal any of this I don’t want her to get mad at me” Thats when she realized he didn’t want to be in a relationship, he had just used her.
While she walked home the tears she had held back streamed down her face in embarrassment and disappointment in herself . She felt used and betrayed but than realized she too had just used him. She never told Crystal what happened that day, maybe it was because he asked her to keep it a secret or maybe it was just because she felt she would never be able to forgive me. For the rest of the summer she continued to go to Olivers house whenever his parents weren’t home. It was going fine and she was content with what was going on up until fall and school started again.
That was when we had stopped talking. He became all she could think about, she just couldn’t get him out of my head. All her friends had knew that they had something going on and were curious as to what was now going on with her. It was like nothing she did mattered anymore unless he was there by my side doing it with her. She had just wished everything would be okay and he’d call her again as if nothing had happened. But that isn’t how it happened, she waited months and than when summer came along again she received a call. Hey stranger how are you? ” Oliver said with his deep voice that surprised kelsey. “Hey why didn’t you ever call me? Its been nearly a year! ” “Im sorry I know that was wrong of me but my parents took away my phone and I was busy with sports and school that I never really had time so i didn’t want to bother you of course” “Okay I understand” “Yeah so want to come over, my parents are out of town” “Yeah sure i’ll be right over” it was as if it was summer of 2008 all over again.
That day she realized that some things never changed, just like their relationship. She just became sick of not being official and decided that we would stop seeing each other forever. He had manipulated her in to thinking that this was what she wanted and the reason he hadn’t called was for her own good. Oliver cared for no one but him self. That day she decided not to go to Oliver’s house. That was the last time they had ever spoke. But she knew if could go back and change a single thing she wouldnt, she just choose not to live a life like that anymore.
