She came into my life when I was at the ripe age of 16. Everything was so awkward and new then, I never thought I would even outgrow that stage. I was five foot nine, had overgrown black hair that yelled to be cut every day, and piercing green eyes that made me stick out like a sore thumb. Socializing was never my strongest point but I managed to merge myself into several social circles.
When it came to girls, I was at a loss. I never considered myself a ladies man and I was sure that half my friends were convinced I was gay. I don’t blame them though; I never had a single relationship in my 16 years of life. Not even a sort-of-kind-of girlfriend back in elementary school. I had always thought it was something that would come along as I came into high school. While the people I associated with snuggled with their girlfriends, they assured I was next.
Besides that fact, there wasn’t much I could do to convince them otherwise. Most of the people that attended my school were people I knew since pre-school meaning if I didn’t love them then, it wasn’t going to happen in high school.
It wasn’t until the last day of winter break that my mindset completely changed.
It was as if she had been there all along but I had suddenly noticed her out of the blue. She was all of a sudden invading my thoughts, dreams, and my attention of every waking minute. As if she was made just for me, things flew along, unexpectedly to my own realization.
She was mine in a matter of days. Life was beautiful as a direct result of her presence yet as I learned more about her, I grew closer to her than I knew I should have. Secrets arose that I wasn’t ready to hear nor face, taking me on a rollercoaster of accepting her for who she was or conforming to pretend she was still the perfect girlfriend.
Either way I looked at it, she turned my world upside down.
Yes yes another story. To be perfectly honest I have no idea where this is going to go but it sounded fantastic in my head and I’ll just have to see where it’s going to go. But the title 9, 3, 1 has plenty of significance.
