Pain is temporary pride is forever


Sitting in the open gym alone cellphone by my side watching my kid brother practice basketball. It wasn't until i was fully paying attention to my surroundings when I notice a guy quickly yet gently walking to my side. He softly muttered a, "hello". I look up and before my eyes stands a tall, lean, most attractive guy I have ever seen. Speechless I reply back with a soft "Hi" He sat next to me so gracefully. We started conversing back and fourth about ourselves. The basics, "Do you play any sports?" or. "Any hobbies?" Until that one question that completely nearly broke me. "So, exactly how old are you?" He asks curiously. "Thirteen" I reply. "Sixteen" he murmurs with a low rumble. A three year age difference seemed like a lot until he asked, "Can i have your number?" I felt shocked! No way in a hundred years would i have guessed that he would ask that one simple thing. We exchanged numbers and when our siblings practice was over we said our goodbyes and ended with a friendly hug. Five seconds passed and with a buzz of my phone a text message read "Hey:)" I automatically assumed it was him. We got so much into conversation i looked at the clock. 3:30 am. We have been talking for nearly seven and a half hours. That next day there was a basketball game for my little brother. With delight my crush stood by the doors waiting for me. We got our seats and as i yawned he asked if I wanted to lean on him. I did so and he put his muscular arm around me. That's when I knew I was in love. We started hanging out as "just friends" until one basketball game. Cheering and routing for our siblings he took me outside to get away from the screaming and supporting parents. It was snowing and when i turned to him to ask to go back inside, we kissed. My mind compeatly out of thought he stared at me. Did that make us official? Were me and this sixteen year old guy dating? I wanted to tell my parents. Although, I was worried they wouldn't approve of the age difference. After a coupple months passing by, I finally decided to cometo truth about my secret boyfriend. It took time before they could adapt to the fact their thirteen year old daughter had a highschool boyfriend. To this day me and my true love are still together. But also facing the hard parts about the age difference. Although we manage to accept and to this day will never forget the day that changed my life.
