I was sitting at the lunch table with my best friends when I first saw him.
He walked in by himself, hands in his pockets, and his hair hanging over his eyes. I leaned over to one of my friends and asked who he was.
"That's William," She said.
And that's how it all started.
It's been 4 years since I first met William and we've been best friends ever since then. The crush I had developed on him in 5th grade had worn off and we were now doing everything together.
But that all changed one night when we went to the high school dance as "Friends". When we saw each other that night, it was like we saw each other in a new light. After the dance, we went to his house to hang out and watch a movie.
The movie got to an extremely sad part, which made me cry. William noticed I was crying and put his arm around me. I laid my head on his chest and let my tears soak through his white T-shirt.
I wanted his arm to hold me tight, not just rest there. I moved my face deeper into his chest and he made a sort of a grunting noise above me. His arm did tighten. I knew what would happen if I raised my head, but I did it anyway and there was his face. He leaned in and our lips connected.
His lips were so soft and gentle. We pressed our faces closer together. I could feel his teeth through his lips. Then his mouth began to open and I could feel things happening inside me that I've never felt before. My hands were deep in the dampness of his hair. Our bodies shifted and faced each other.
Suddenly music started blaring and we pulled apart. The movie had ended and the credits were rolling. I looked back at William who was staring at me with his emerald green eyes. He had laid back and his feet were now up on the couch. I scooted closer to him. He wrapped his hands around my waist and softly pulled me on him.
We kissed again and I took off his jacket. He pulled off his shirt and slowly crawled his hands under my shirt. I traced the outline of his chest as he slowly unclothed me. Then he pulled me on top of him and our lips connected again. He slid his hands down my waist and I lay my head against his chest.
Soon we fell asleep on the couch, hand in hand. It was one of the best nights of my entire life. The love, the care, and of course...William.
