Time and Distance

In most cases, distance makes the heart grow fonder. But as Keaton Stromberg starts touring the country on his journey to fame, he leaves his love, Lily Lovanya, back home in Huntington Beach, California. As time goes by Lily starts to question her strength and love. Will their love stretch like the miles between them? Or will it fade like the seconds that pass by?

     Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough. Distance means so little when someone means so much. Then why is this so hard for me? Is it because I am not strong enough?

     I can't remember how long it's been since I last saw him.I love him so much but I never get to see him anymore. He insisted I come on tour with him, but I said no. I would have went with him, I mean I really did want to travel with him, but I have school. I can't just not go to it. I love him so much, but I don't think I can do this long distance thing anymore.

     Ever since Keaton auditioned for that show with his brother Wesley and his friend Drew, he's been getting increasingly distant. Now that he is actually miles and miles away from me, the feeling is even worse. The whole thing is upsetting really. It wasn't always like this though. We use to be really close. Keaton and I use to do everything together. He always came to my house or I always went to his after school and on the weekends. We went skateboarding together and he even took the time to teach me how to ride a skateboard. He always came to my softball games and cheered me on. He would always come over to the dugout while I waited my turn to bat and kiss me through the fence.  Now it's just phone calls and face-time. We text a lot, but it's just not the same. I miss him so much. 

     We've known each other since the first grade and have been inseparable ever since. My other friends started calling us Keatly because we were always together. I still remember the first time we met. It was on the first day of first grade and i went to go and put my kitty-kat backpack in my cubby at the same time as him. He turned to me with a toothless smile and said "I like your bag. I have a cat at home." We spent the rest of that day talking about cats and became friends instantly. By the third grade Keaton had already promised he would marry me one day. It wasn't until the sixth grade that we started dating. Four years we have been dating now. How much longer can we last? 

      I just want him to hold me again. I forgot what it feels like to lay in his arms. I forgot how his lips taste and how his voice sounds when he whispered sweet nothings in my ear. I miss watching old movies with him on the weekends and having fourth period with him at school. Things just aren't the same without him around anymore. I think I am going to cry.
