The First Girl I Fell In Love With

Her name was Sophie. We were both homeschooled. She had a gummy smile. She was quiet and poetic. She had a pet bird.

We took homeschool biology together and used to study together at her house. We created flash cards and quizzed each other.

In December one day after studying, we watched the Nutcracker ballet on television and then her bird pooped on me. I wanted to kiss her but I didn't.

Afterwards I went home.

Her mom called my mom and said Sophie liked me and what did we want to do about it. My mom told her that I didn't like her then hung up the phone.
