I fell for a kid with a dream, a smile that never quits, and a pure heart. He stood about 6 feet tall, 170 pounds, always kept a clean fade, he had a different pair of sneakers on every day. Did I mention that he smelled like a dream and his attire was carefully picked out?
I was at a football game and half time was just about over so I was saying my final see ya laters to all my friends before I headed back out with the other cheerleaders. As I turned around to get to the field, this freakin beauty walked right in front of me, and I can’t lie I lost my breath for a second and all I could say was “who is that”? My friend Dee said oh, that’s Elijah. I looked in shock like how the heck do you know him, and how did I not see him until now? How long has my head been in the clouds?
Now let me be clear I cringe when I’m stared at for too long or if someone approaches me. It’s the most uncomfortable feeling and somewhat annoying. With that in mind, I could have never imagined that I would even think about approaching someone and getting into their space.
My hands were shaking and sweat just started pouring from my scalp and I did not want it to go any further but I couldn’t let this moment pass me by. I had to say Hi or something. So I walked up to him, and he looked down at me with a slight smile and slightly confused look. I blurted out
Yes, it sounded as crazy at it looks! He said, what was that? HIMYNAMEISKELLI
Totally out of my comfort zone and looking and feeling like an idiot so I started to walk away and he touched my arm and said “Hi I’m Elijah” and his smile lit a fire in my soul.
