{Our Love Story}

{FIRST met}
We first met at a Church dance when I was 15 and Brevin was 16. I stalked him. He was cute. 
My friend approached him and said, 
"my friend here has been checking you out all night, you should dance with her." 
then walked away. 
we danced. awkwardly.
exchanged names. said nothing else.
freaking awkward.
He doesn't even remember this. 

The next year I started high school.
I walked in to my human biology class my first day, late, and that's when Brevin checked me out. 
oh yes. 
tables had turned. 

{FIRST time talking to him}
We were in the middle of a lab, I remember turning to him and saying, kind of snotty,
  "dude, hurry up with the squamos cell slide, you're taking forever."
 He said nothing. 
Smiled. 
Handed it to me. 
Went home. 
Facebook friend request.
I was ecstatic.

{FIRST fake "I left my book at school}
guilty.
I had my biology book in my car and was procrastinating studying for our test the next day. 
So, while instant messaging, I told him I forgot it.
 He got all spiffed up, cologne and all, showed up with the book. 
Then left.
Needless to say, I didn't study. 
Instead, I wrote a geeky poem and left it in his book. 
He still has it. 
failed the test.

{FIRST date}
Sweethearts Ball. 
McCall asked.
