The Girl Who Changed My Life

by Darrick Lawson

It's been three months since I saw or talked to her. It's probably because how things ended between us. I haven't forgotten the great moments we shared, but I haven't received an email or phone call from her since. She changed my life, and I'll never forget what she did to change it. We met last year, two months before school ended. Her name was Brianna. We meet in the hallway. It was kind of awkward for a sec, before, "hi, and I said hey" back. I was feeling a connection between us. Afterwards we both left and we were going to see each other after school. Things were going good so far, but this was just the beginning of a dramatic change in my life.. Maybe things will change later on, I hope.

It was a normal day at school, until I saw this girl named Brianna. She was new to my school so I introduced myself to her. I have seen her before walking by herself. We talked for a while, and then she gave me her number and said we should hang sometime after school. I said ok and she said see you then. I couldn't wait till the day was over. I couldn't stop thinking about her. I don't know why, but I was feeling a connection between us. As soon as school ended I had to go meet up with her at her locker. After we meet up, we went up to the park and sat there and talked for a while till my dad came to get me. We had a lot in common, especially when we talked about country music, and atvs, and living in the country. Afterwards I left, but I couldn't help but notice her deep bluish green eyes looking back at me when she was leaving. I was thinking she likes me, but I wasn't sure. I had a good feeling about it though. Later on that night she texted me saying, "I didn't want you to leave". I was so shocked because she was beautiful, and I didn't think I was going to have a good chance but guess my luck changed. I texted back saying "Really why"? She messaged back saying, "I never met anyone like you". I told her I had to go and we can talk tomorrow. The next day we met up in ac lab and sat there and talked about what she texted me the night before. Afterwards I asked her if she wanted to hang after school Monday till nine, and she said yes. The days went by fast, and it was already Monday. I was excited to spend time with her. At the end of the day, we met up and hung out at the park, talked, and shot hoops.

Then I took her on an adventure. We walked to south middle, and it felt like it was taking a long time to get there. When we finally got there, we went to see all the teachers, and said hi to them all. We only found a few, and then we went to the gym and sat down then left. After we left, we went to Wal-Mart and held hands because we wanted to see what people would say and if they would look at us funny. Lot of people looked at us funny, but we didn't care because we thought they were crazy. Then we started putting on random clothes, and next we threw them off and dashed though the door. We sat on the side walk laughing at how dumb we were acting. So far my night was going as exactly as planned.

Later on that night when it was getting really dark, we went back to the park, but this one was close to her house. We walked on the playground and stood by each other and looked into the sky at the stars. I could notice she was really into, me but I didn't mind because I was into her too. She turned and looked at me, and I turned and looked at her. I grabbed her hands, and then we just stared into each other eyes and smiled then we kissed. It felt like the world stopped, and it was just me and her there alone. After I kissed her, I was thinking she could be the one for me. Things were going great and I grabbed her hand and walked her home. Then I gave her kiss goodnight. When I got home, I kept thinking she changed my life because I used to push people away because I didn't want to let people into my life because I was always solo and like being by myself but for some reason she was different so I didn't want to push her away. But I kept pulling her closer and closer to my heart.

After weeks passed of us hanging and talking something really terrible happened. I didn't know what to do but listen. Brianna told me that she just found out that she was moving out of St. Louis and that we can't be together anymore. My heart dropped so fast it was like I could hear it shatter into a million pieces. I saw tears in her eyes starting to form, and she said, "I love you and that you're the best thing that ever happened to me, and I wish I didn't have leave." I told her it'll be ok because we'll see each other again then things seem to get quiet when she said we can't talk or hug anymore because it's going to hurt me knowing that's the last time we'll hug or talk. I said I see, and then we both went our separate ways

After all I have been through; my life has never been the same since what went on between us. Because of Brianna I started to let people into my life and not push people away. One month later, when I was out of town, something out of the blue happened that shocked me. I saw her at a walmart in Branson. She seemed to notice me before I noticed her. She walked up too, me and said, "Hey I miss you." I said the same back. After we talked for a while and said our goodbyes, we then turned to go our own ways. I heard her call my name, and she said, "This won't be the last time we meet because our love will bring us together once again." Then I walked out the door thinking how after all we been though she still loves me and I hope that day comes soon so we can be together once again.
