While We're Young

A girl named Kathryn meets a boy named Niall, and they grow very fond of eachother very fast. They spend their summer together everyday. There are a few bumps in the road, but they try to make their way through them.


1. The Little Things

I've always been asked, "Have you ever been in love?" Well I have, once.  A very long time ago.  Im writing this now, to tell the story of that perfect summer with that perfect guy.

He had the most beautiful blue eyes and a smile that could make a football stadium full of people smile, it was radient.  When i first met him, i couldnt speak.

"Hey Kathryn!" my best friend, Hayley, screamed from the other side of the football field.

 We met halfway on the pathway that circles the field.  She was with a guy, i couldnt make out the face quite yet, she was too far away, but as we got closer the face became more and more vivid.  She did not dissapoint.  I always complained to her about how i never had a guy to talk to and a guy to keep me warm on those crisp fall nights, it's the little things that i care about.  So as any sweet best friend would, she decided to hook me up with her friend who was a year older and a junior.  His eyes were a brilliant blue, and he had an amazing smile, so white and bright.

"This, is Mike," she said while smiling.

"Hey, it's nice to meet you Kathryn, I've heard a lot about you," he said.

His voice was so soothing, i wanted to hear more so i did my best to keep the brief conversation going.

"Hey, it's nice to meet you too!"  I put out my hand and he put out his, we shook hands.

He hand was so gentle while shaking.  I didnt want to let go.

"Well, I'm going to go say hi to Emily.  Ill be back in a bit," Hayley whispered while gleaming.

"Alright see you soon!" Mike said.

"So, youre a sophomore right?" He asked.

"Yeah, and youre a junior."

We walked toward the fence that guarded the football field.  We talked about school, what classes we were taking, what sports we played, what things we liked to do for fun.  It seemed perfect.  We really connected.  Hayley came back and pulled me aside.

"Soo...how are things?" She winked.

"Great," i replied.  "Really good, it isnt awkward when we talk, i feel comfortable around him." I laughed and looked over at him, he looked at me and smiled.

Hayley and i walked over to Mike.  We all talked for a while and then he got a text.

"It's my mom, shes here to pick me up."

"Oh, alright well see ya later!" Hayley said.

"Kathryn, can i have your number?"

Obviously i started beaming and gave it to him.  Seconds after he left us i got a text from him saying, "hey(:"  I texted back and we talked for hours after i left the game with Hayley.  I was at her house and we were watching a movie.  Well, she was.  I was more interested on the screen on my phone!
