How I Learnt Love



There I was, an Australian kid who was sitting in a movie theater alone, and all of a sudden this beautiful American girl who looked a year older than me walked in and sat at the back of the theater, she kind of just acknowledged me with a quick nod. Half way through the movie she asked if she could sit next to me, I said, "Of course" After a while she asked for my name, I said, "Andrew Apelt"

Later on a monster popped up on the movie, she squeezed my hand like she was wanted to break it. We both then broke out in laughter which kind of broke the ice, and we stared into each others eyes like we were meant to be together forever. Like we already knew each other. 

At the end of the movie, she said, "Goodbye Andrew, I'm going back home tomorrow." Which meant she was going back to America. She then kissed my cheek and walked off.

I sat there, thinking about how I had fallen in love with her, I then realized that I hadn't asked for her name and that I will never see the love of my life ever again, I had also realized that I had just learnt what love was. I'm 14 and I can tell you, I will never forget her.
