Yes I have lived a good life, but I didn’t realize how empty I was until I met Emma. I hate to admit that I didn’t really notice her at first. The truth is I’ve been in school with her since kindergarten, but didn’t really notice her until the 10th grade. Getting to know Emma has made me fall hard for her. I was afraid she was not ready to date after the heartache she just went through, but I was wrong.
When she finally decided to be my girlfriend, I knew my summer was going to be awesome. We’re both working at Fairland Park, which my father happens to own. He couldn’t believe it when I asked him for a job. It only took him minutes to realize I was doing it for a girl. As long as I was working this summer, he didn’t really care what I was doing it for.
Emma’s not like any other girl I’ve ever dated before. She doesn’t care what kind of bag she carries or what’s the latest trend. Her way of dressing up for a date is wearing jeans and a T-shirt. She’s simple and I love that about her. My friends are not crazy about her, especially Christy. She gives her a hard time every time she sees her, but Emma can hold her own, which makes me like her even more. It really has been great spending my days with Emma this summer.
Lately though, I’d been feeling her pull away. It’s scaring me. I don’t want to lose her after just finding her. There is a part of me that doesn’t trust that guy Nash she works with. I don’t know what it is about him, but I don’t like him. Maybe it’s the way he looks at her, as if he wants her for himself. I hope it’s all in my head and we can end this summer still together and happy.
