sweet sweet love

we met when we were young.  then we dated. we fell in love. we got married.  we had a baby.  we are a family.

kylie is my best friend.  when i first met him, i thought he was "hot" i was also 16 and he was 18.


he was pretty goofy and very much a nerd, but he was my friend.  he played guitar and sang softly, but he was slowly melting my heart.  how cheesy, right? haha  anyway after a few years as friends, we slowly started to like each other more.  i wrote him an email and said i liked him and he responded with "i'm a hoss cat.  i've been flirty with you, but you're just a friend."  it stunk, but hey, he was a good friend so it wasn't awkward.  then i went to cheerleading camp for a week and when i got back, i went to one of his concerts. that's right he was in a band.  anyway, before camp i had cut all my hair off short, like from shoulders to right below the ear.  he says that night at the concert is when he decided i was cute.  he says the short hair was pretty hot. haha. 


this secret liking for each other when on for awhile.  (note this was all taking place the summer of 2004.) by fall it was kind of becoming more clear that we actually like each other.  we played riddle-seek, a game our group of friends made up. (one car hides, you call and give a riddle.  then the other team has to figure out the riddle and then find you.  once they find the car they have to find the bodies, so another riddle is given out.  it was very fun for a group of teens in a small town.) anyway, kylie always wanted to be on my team.  when i went inside to get our friend his cousin pressured him to answer if he liked me.  the next night at work she told me his secret.  later after work i went to our friend brad's house to watch one of the worst movies ever.  biker zombies from detroit!  brad's house was always cold so everyone always snatched a blanket.  that night kylie and i had to share.  then sneaky sneaky hands reached over and held my hand.  it was the most awkward postion ever, but neither of us wanted to let go.  i later left and immediately called my now sister-in-law.  i was DYING!  the secret hand holding, it was not public, went on for sometime.  we texted like crazy but never were official.  then the night before kylie left to go to CA for two weeks(to record an album) he asked me to be his girl friend.  i am so terrible i laughed at him.  i just thought it was so funny how he asked like a little kid would.  but of course, i said yes.  then before i went home, he gave me a kiss.  which we both agree was absolutely terrible.  haha, he said i kissed him with the tightest lips in the world.  but hey, what can i say, i didn't want to lay it all out there. haha so he was gone for TWO weeks, never called, never texted.  it stunk.  so when he got back it was sorta wierd.  my ex bf had been texting me alot and since kylie was not around or keepin in contact my feelings for him were fading and my old flame was sparking up again....

i'm coping jillian.  this is a series.
