Summer Love

In the summer of 2009 Karen got a job at a day camp that she went to from 5-14 y/o. Now that she's a junior in high school, she needed the money. It's your typical summer camp; kids running and screaming, some crying. But all that disappears when she meets the boy.. The curly haired one who she's met before, but who she knows nothing about.


5. Such Magic

It was around 9pm and I was helping put the kids to bed. One staff member was assigned a different cabin every night to stay with the kids until they fell asleep. Luckily, I had the cabin with the older group. The kids cooperated really well which was very helpful for me.

I sat down on an empty bed by a window in the corner of the cabin so I had a clear view of the kids. I pulled out a book and started to read. I was really tired and I could feel myself starting to fall asleep.

As I started to nod off, I heard a clicking noise on the window by my head which made me jump. I looked out the window and saw Harry standing there waving his arms frantically. I opened the window as quietly as I could, trying not to wake anyone up.

"What the hell are you doing?" I loudly whispered.

"Come with me" he whispered back.

 "I can't, I'm on children duty." I pouted a little.


I looked back at the room and saw that all the kids were asleep. I looked back down at him and smiled. I rolled my eyes and closed the window. I quietly tiptoed my way to the front door.

 I quietly opened and shut the front door of the cabin and walked to the side of the cabin where Harry was. When he came into view, he was looking up at the window. I stepped on a stick that snapped and he jumped. He closed his eyes and took a deep breath. "Don't give me a heart attack now!" He half whispered and half yelled.

 I started to laugh and he looked at me angrily. "Ha ha. Don't worry Harry, it's just me." He walked over and gave a you-think-you're-funny look. He grabbed my book out of my hand threw it into a bush. "Hey, Harr-.."

"Shhhh. Get it in the morning, follow me."

He took my hand and lead me down the trail we used for the nature activities. The trail felt cooler now that it was night time and I was thankful I changed into warmer clothes after the fire. The trail was also really dark, only lit by the moon which was huge tonight.

We turned to the right and followed a smaller trail for about a hundred feet. We had to duck under a big branch to come out to a clearing. I looked up from going under the branch and looked straight.

It was the most beautiful sight I've ever seen. The trees perfectly lined up with the edges of the moon, which reflected on the dark blue water. It was beyond compare.

"I found this spot one day when I eight. I'm not sure if anyone else knows about it. I know I've never showed anyone" Harry's voice made me snap out of the view and I thought,  I've never showed anyone.

"Why not?" I looked to my left and watched Harry sit down a tree trunk. I went over and sat next to him, both of us looking at the view. "I don't know, I don't like showing my soft side I guess." He shrugged his shoulders and I nodded my head. He does seem like your typical rugged guy who would be afraid to open up about his feelings.

"It sure is breathtaking Harry." I said, still taking it all in. He chuckled and looked at me.

"See, I promised you didn't I?" I remembered what he had said early that day. I turned my head towards him and gave him a confused looked. "Is that why you brought me here?" He looked down at his hands in his lap and I saw him smile.

He looked straight up, "that too." Still smiling, he turned his head to face me and his eyes locked with mine. He stopped smiling and studied my face. I felt butterflies fill my stomach and I did the same to his.

The way the moon light shined through his green eyes which blazed through me was amazing. The way his hair was perfectly done, like he had tended to it every second of the day. The way his stare made my heart melt and made me feel warm inside. The way he made me feel in this exact moment was a feeling I couldn't complain about.

His eyes moved down and he leaned in closer to me. I knew what he wanted, and I wanted it too.

I've had a couple boyfriends before so this wouldn't be my first kiss. The longest relationship of mine lasted for a year and a half until he cheated on me. Of course it was devastating because I loved him and he let me down. I didn't care right now especially because he's no Harry.

I leaned in and as my eyes closed we shared a passionate, light kiss. I was thankful that I knew what I was doing so I didn't embarrass myself. The butterflies in my stomach started fluttering around and then they went away. Harry placed his hand on my jaw line as we kissed a little harder and our lips moved in sync. This had to be the most magical moment of my life.
