Well I’ve and it’s amazing what happens, maybe those silly dreams that you had will become your new reality and might be scary of just fun. So that’s how it started, I had just arrived in London, for a exchange program, what for a 16 years old girl would be a lot fun to do, but guess what I didn’t knew anyone there and suddenly change country wasn’t easy for a teenager, except for one fact , my exchange family was really nice and wanted me to feel home so we went to a lot of amusement places and I accidently bumped with a really nice boy, he was taking pictures of the Big Bang , I’m really clumsy and this accident only proved my conclusions, but changing subjects he had really deep blue eyes and an amazing smile, of course I said “I’m really sorry, if I broke it let me paid for the repair”, and he said “Don’t worry I always let fall on the ground just to meet pretty girls.” we smiled, “I’m Kate.” I said, “Stephen, nice to meet you”. He said, “Would you like to get some coffee one of these days?” he said right after “A pretty girl like you would say no, you probably have a boyfriend.”, “Yes and No, I would love to get some coffee right now if you want.
Oh and I don’t have a boyfriend just some boy friend’s”, he said and showed me that amazing smile again. He asked my “family” if we could go on our own and they said ok, at the café we started talking about high school and our favorite bands, ” Wow, we have a lot in common , but you’re not from here are you?” he asked, “No I’m from France, I’m in a exchange program , and you?” I said, “I lived here all my life so I’m British. But why did you choose England for your exchange program?” he said, ” Because is a nice city and I always wanted to live here, Stephen I’m sorry for asking this but how old are you?” , ” I’m 17 , and you?”, ” I’m 16, have you ever had a girlfriend?” ,”A girl friend yes , a girlfriend no, not for lack of invitation I just never found the right one to fall in love completely.” . After that we stayed a long time without talking until I say I had to go home, ” It’s getting late I have to go”, it was nice meeting you” when I was leaving the café he pulled me back and Kissed me and said : “Call me , I’m free Friday, bye .” I saw myself in shock, I was never kissed and on my second day on London that happens, after it when I got home I was still touching my lips saying OMG and smiling a lot, when my exchange sister asked what’s’ going on with me I answered : ” I think I’m in love or at least liking someone.” . Because she was my little sister she said tell me everything, where, with who and if he was cute and I answered everything because something had finally happened to me, someone had liked me for the first time and he was amazing. On the next day, I was walking, trying to get to school on time when someone poked me, and after I turned to the person there he was, smiling at me. “What are you doing here?” I asked, “I go to the Miterness Institute, and you?” he said, “Me too, we better hurry up before we get late.” So we ran as fast as we could to get on time what didn’t worked because the gates were already closed. “On my first day and I already missed the first period, I’m sorry I didn’t paid attention at you when we meet is just that I want to give my exchange family a good reason to let me stay here for the next years.” I said, “Don’t worry I know how stressful is to be the new kid, so we both lost the first period, and we will have to wait until next class starts, while it doesn’t happen do you want to want along with me ?”He said, “Maybe, we can go but only if you promise me that we won’t lose another class, ok?” on my head I was wishing that he would say: “It’s a deal.” And that’s what he said with a bit of British charm, voice, body language and that amazing smile that always made my heart beat faster. So we walked, and walked, at first we talked about family, and he said he was really connected with his mother, we didn’t realize that time was going by so fast, only when his cell ranged we realize it. “It’s time to go back to reality.” He said with a look of “why now?”, “We could continue this conversation later, can you help me with something?”I said, “Sure, what do you need?”, “Could you show me the school? Is just that I don’t know anything or anyone but you. I’m not complaining but I can’t ask that for anyone else.”, “Of course I’ll help you, but you have to help too, what about a date tomorrow, after school?”, “I don’t even need to think about the answer we both know its yes.” I was on the fingertips trying to kiss him, when a car ran over a puddle that was on the side of road and left us all soaked what a bad timing. “Kate are you OK?”, “Yes, beside the fact I’m all wet, and you?”, “I’m fine, do you want to go home and change clothes?”, “I do, can you walk me home?”, “You didn’t needed to ask.” On the way back home he picked up my hand and held it, that was his way of saying: “I like you and I’ll show the world that I’m yours.” A few blocks away we got to my house, when we were saying good bye, ours eyes met, and I could see all written in his face that he wanted to kiss me, but first he looked to the street, searching for someone or something that could bother us again. After searching, he was still holding my hand, when we had our first “both were ready for” kiss. As I walked inside home, I could see my “mom’s” face for seeing me so early there, so she asked me what was I doing there and I told her the whole story, the only thing she said was: “I don’t want you to skip class any more, especially because of boys. But beside that I’m happy you have someone.” she smiled. My birth parents are totally different from my exchange family, one is a full “born and raised as a French person” and the other is “Count me in, I know all about love, not because we’re half British, half Italian people”. But something I need to agree is that my exchange family is better to talk to, about relationships.
