I slid along the sidewalk at a great speed. I was heading towards the skate park on my new skateboard. I had gotten it for my thirteenth birthday, which was just last week. Of course, I have had other skateboard before this one. I had been skating for a long time, making me pretty good at it.
I slid into the skate park and flew across the smooth pavement. I wasn't looking where I was going when I felt the bump. I yelped as I was thrown off my board and a girly scream came from in front of me. I felt my elbows start to bleed on the smooth cement.
I sat up to see my board had gone all the way to the other side of the park. I examined my skinned knee, then looked for where the girly scream and come from.
I panicked! Laying motionlessly next to me was a beautiful girl. She had long blonde hair spread like a halo around her head. She was wearing jean shorts and a pink tank-top. Her eyes were closed and her knees and elbows where bleeding.
I knelt down by her and stared at her delicate body.
"Are you okay?" I asked loudly, hoping that she could hear me.
When I didn't get a reply I shook her and her eyelids fluttered.Slowly, she opened her eyes all the way and I helped her into a sitting position.
"I am so sorry," I cried, "I wasn't looking where I was going and I... I hit..."
the girl looked at me and a small smile appeared on her face.
"Are you okay?" I asked.
"Yes," She said simply.
"I am so sorry," I said, "let me help you with you knees and elbows."
I pulled a cluster of band-aids out of my back pocket and gently pressed them onto her skin, and then mine.
"Thank you," she said. Her voice was smooth like satin.
"I'm Trey," I told her, running a hand through my hair.
"I'm Crystal," she said.
"That's an amazing name," I told her, and I meant it.
"Trey is pretty cool too," she said, starting to stand up.
I stood up with her and smiled at her.
"What were you doing here?" She asked.
She pointed to her board on the other side of the park. It was right next to mine.
"Sure you sure you're okay?" I asked, "You were out cold,"
I'm fine," she assured me, "I'm just delicate,"
"Want to go get our boards?" I asked.
She nodded and we started to walk.
"Sorry for hitting you're board. That was totally my fault," Crystal said.
"No way," I argued," That was all me,"
"No," Crystal said, "It was me. I'm a pretty bad boarder,"
"I... I could teach you some ti.. time," I stuttered nervously. The thought of teaching Crystal how to skateboard made my heart flutter.
"Thanks," she beamed, "Could we start now?"
3 years later
I slid along the pavement on my skateboard, holding hands with Crystal. We were heading to the skate park in the next town over, because it was better than the one in this town. We were less than five minutes away when Crystal suddenly stopped. I was tightly holding onto her hand and my board skittered out from under me.
"Why did you stop," I asked my friend.
Crystal pushed a strand of hair away from her face and looked at me with her large blue eyes. She looked like she was going to say something important, but she just looked down and told me that she had gotten stuck in a sidewalk crack.
"Uh, okay," I answered.
We both got back on our boards and held hands again once we started. We weren't dating or anything, we just holding hands because it was fun. Once we reached the skate park Crystal let go and stopped to stare at me. She blushed, then got back on her board and started to skate to the bowl. she turned around to skate backwards and got preoccupied with looking at me. She didn't see how close the bowl was to her.
She started to tumble backwards into the deep bowl.
"Trey," she screamed.
I leapt of my board. I was luckily only a couple feet behind her. I grabbed her hand, but I was pulled in as well. Together we slid down the side and into the middle of the bowl, both of us screaming our heads off. We stared at each other with wide, scared eyes.
Then, Crystal did something she had never done before. She leaned forward kissed me straight on the lips. She smiled at me and I smiled back, then kissed her again. Little did I know that this was the start of something very new.
