Hey THERE Beautiful!
I am a friend of Nora’s.
My name is Allie over @ A Girl Named Allie.
SO excited to meet you! Please come take a look at what I have to offer and follow if you think you’d like to see more of whats goin down in ALLIE Town!
Today I’d like to share a post dear to me… How I Fell in LOVE
I was a freshman in high school as was he. Jordan and I shared 4th Period together – Photography. I was really into it! Jordan took it just for the credits he was needing. We were always sat alphabetically going by last names. Burrows and Peterson never seemed to be by each other in high school days. So it was a few months from when the class began till we finally spoke.
Jordan describes his memory of me in class as:
You were sitting at your desk, your long blond hair down to the small of your back.
As you gazed into space thinking about who knows what.
Tapping your pencil against your desk in a repetitive matter.
All I knew is once that bell rang, I was gonna talk to you for the first time.
Then the bell would ring,
I’d see you get up,
my hands would sweat,
and I’d let you walk by.
Jordan was shy though. Luckily, my good friend Melany sat next to him. He said he liked me, she thought I’d feel the same way if I got to know him so she put my number in his phone.
After class he was playing a guitar that another kid had brought for the day. Boys and guitars were kinda my thing. So I went upto him.
Allie: “I didn’t know you played guitar!”
Jordan: “Yeah” and smiled. “Hope you dont mind, Mel gave me your number”
Allie: “I guess thats fine” with a giggle and my whole face turned red.
Jordan called that night and asked if I wanted to go to his brothers later with some friends. I of course agreed and called Melany right afterwards to make sure she’d join me. After she said yes, shortly later, Jordan’s sister-in-law came and got me and Mel from my house (we were just 15 at the time, no drivers licenses yet!) The night was filled with getting to know you questions, flirting, and laughter. He asked me to hang out for Halloween and so we made pans. He drove me home with the supervision of Kim. I came home and wrote in my journal, a page I’m really happy I wrote. In big letters I put “I LIKE JORDAN!!”
Halloween rolled around and we ended up going to my cousins friends house for a small get together. I was standing by the pool table and Ashley came over to talk to me.
Ashley: “Do you like Jordan?”
Allie: “Uhhh.. I dunno, Why?” I start to turn pink. I look down the table and see Jordan talking to Cody and looking at me.
Ashley: “He likes you! And wanted me to ask you” Keep in mind we were 15! So yes it was really cheesy 🙂
We went for a walk, all us teenagers, to a graveyard to be rebellious for the Halloween Holiday. While we’re walking thru the graveyard Jordan looks at me and asks, “Are you cold?” I nod my head timidly. He takes off his jacket and wraps it around me. I inhale deeply to breath in his axe and cologne. I’m in heaven. He then puts his arm around me as we walk and talks to me about little things.
When we got back, me and Jordan played the piano together, bonded over both liking Killswitch Engage and watched all the other couples being all cutesy but sat awkwardly apart.
On the car ride home he is upset that he cant sit next to me. But we knew we’d get other opportunities.
And that’s all it took. One night. One night of locking eyes across the room. One night of him being the perfect gentleman. One night of him making my heart beat faster and slower and spin in circles. That One night, we both knew we had met The One.
He gave me the butterflies that were on speed and bouncing off the sides of my stomach. He continues to make my heart melt like an ice cream cone in the Summer. The touch of his hand sends warmth thru me down to my toes. With him I feel safe. Jordan showed me what true love is. How true love feels. And a whole new never-want-to-lose-you feeling.
