My First Crush

This tells the story of my first crush and how silly it was. I was probably six or seven then.

First Crush

I grew up in the fifties in an idyllic neighborhood where everyone knew everyone. The girl across the street and I were great chums and I was with her night an day when I wasn't in school. She was a awnry one and I was naïve and innocent. She nearly killed my favorite kitten when I took over for her to inspect only a few days after it was born. She hurled it up in the air and if it hadn't been for me rushing it to my grandmother who knew about such things it probably would not have made it.

One time I made the mistake of telling her I liked the boy next door. He was very nice and I thought him cute beyond belief. He had a horse in the pasture next to my grandparent's house and I spent hours watching him ride.

My friend got the idea of having me take him flowers. If only I had realized this was what boys typically did, not women. But instead I thought well of it and went about picking my grandmother's mums into a lovely bouquet. I actually took them over to him. He looked at them and then at me, choked out a 'thank you' and that was the end of that.

I remember I was invited to his house one time and he was running his trains in the room upstairs. I was fascinated by the mechanism that made the train go and I set watching it for quite a while.

I really don't remember much else of our affair. I was probably six or seven at the time and I am ten times that now. I remember years later when my husband had reason to be in content with a contractor. I recognized him as the man who that young boy had grown into. I commented on it to him one day and we both had a good laugh. I had been so very shy when I was young. I doubt he and I had ever said more than a dozen words to one another.

Without DR DAHIRU a lot of people would have been dead through heart break. My case is not different from heart break, I am married woman with 3 kids and there was a time when i was having problem with my husband because he was having an affair outside our marriage and this was making me feel bad. So i tried finding solution to my problem by reading a lot of relationship tips on the internet and that was how i came in contact with DR DAHIRU contact details and through the help of DR DAHIRU at my husband left the girl he was having affair with and he came back to me and our kids. After a job well done by DR DAHIRU i felt that it will be unfair if i keep this secret to myself and that is why i am going to drop the contact details of DR DAHIRU right now,or you can also reach him via this email:
