Sunset Prologue Theres always that one who will steal your heart. They will give you the world and much more. They will make you feel loved. They will make you feel safe. And then their gone. Your heart broken. Lost. Sad. Lonely. And no matter what they did to hurt you. you know you would take them back in a split second. They would always have a place in your heart. And you can do anything about it. You can’t forget them. You can attempt to hate them but know deep down you don’t. This is what I call a first love. We all have one. A first love. If you don’t yet you will one day. It’s a sweet n’ sour thing. Something you love to have but hate that’s its gone when it’s over. Lots of people don’t want to fall in love. And I think their missing out on a wonderful experience. I know the heart break sucks but I think it’s still worth it. I don’t regret any of it. Every moment. Every kiss. Every hug. Every fight. I want to remember it all. Because this person who I consider my first love showed me what it was like to view the world from a different perspective. He showed me what love is. He showed me things my parents tried to keep me away from. He made me try new things. Good and bad. He helped me experience life in a way most people consider bad. He also took me down a road in life that I never thought I would take (but got off of). A road that they warn kids in school not to take. The low road. What churches consider sin. The road your parents would ground you for if they knew. And this is the experience I’m about to tell you. Because one sunset, I meet Ryan Thornton.
Sunset ch 1 I Was laying on my best friends bed as she looked in the mirror putting on makeup. She was getting ready to go see her boyfriend and invited me over for a bit before she left. "You know you don't need make up. You look better without it" I said to her. She shrugged and continued to apply her eyeliner. Trish was 15 years old, 5'10 tall and skinny. She had pale skin but it looked good on her. She had long black hair and what they call sunflower eyes. Trish was really outgoing. The type of person people want to be. Some people think we are sisters. I can see how sometimes, but other times i cant. I was 15 years old and tall but only 5'7. I had brown eyes and long brown highlighted hair that seemed to never stay straight like Trish's did. I had slightly tan skin and I was skinny. I was the type of person who cared about there looks but not to much. Trish cared a lot about her looks which is probably why she always looked like a model. In the end, I envied her. She had the looks, the confidence, the lasting relationship. But for once I got lucky. I had just gotten a new boyfriend. Ryan Thornton. My confidence was high for once and I was also starting to care more about my looks. "So who's this guy your dating? The one you didnt bother to tell me about last night and I had to find out on facebook that he asked you out yesturday." Trish said. "Ryan" I said. "How did he ask you out? Where were you guys? Give me details! " She said. I gave her a run through of the previous night. How Ryan came over for a movie night and at the end of the night, in my driveway he asked me out under the Christmas lights. I also told her how he lifted me off my feet and kissed me. Just telling her what happened last night gave me butterflies in my stomach all over again. My mind went back to me and Ryan's first date. I remember a week before he had canceled the date to try to get back with his ex. Two days later he told me if I wanted, the date could happen again since him and his ex wouldn't be getting back together. But he'd understand if I didn't want to rush into anything after he had just canceled on me. I agreed to go though. And it turned out to be one of the best decisions I've made so far. Ryan was perfect. Ryan was 18 years old. He was 6 foot tall and skinny. Buzz cut hair and light skinned. He was outgoing and really funny. He had a job at a pet shop and he drove! Which is a huge plus compared to my ex boyfriends. And he was mine! "Earth to Katie!" Trish said as she waved her hand in front of my face. I came out of my thoughts and said "yes"? "I have to go on my date now ill see you at school tomorrow." She said. I got up off her bed and walked with her out of her house. Her bf and his mom were waiting in car for her. I said good bye and walked the 2 houses down to my house. I was lucky to live so close to my best friend unlike some girls who there best friend lives far away. I crashed on tmy couch and fell asleep for the rest of the day ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ It was Friday and I was sitting in my last class watching the clock Tick away slowly. I was going to spend the night at my friend Liz's house so I could stay out late and see Ryan. My teacher Mr. Montgomery was going on about poetry and assigning us a poetry project for the weekend. But I was only slightly paying attention when Ryan texted me. 'Can't wait to see you babe'. A huge smile spread across my face. I was so excited. After school I went home with Liz. She let me borrow a outfit of hers and helped straighten my hair and do my makeup. Ryan would be coming over after work and taking us to a festival. Then Liz's boyfriend would meet up with us later. Around 7pm there was a truck pulling into the driveway and not long after a knock on the door. Ryan was here.
One of the nicest things a guy has ever done for me is sent me a sloth meme over text when he was trying to convince me to hang out. It was a sloth in front of a sunset, and it said "It's a love story, baby just say yes." I'm not kidding you people. True story.
