The First time I kissed a girl
Does a Kiss Elevate your Soul to the Fringes of Heaven?
I remember the first time I kissed a girl. It's one of the most intriguing things that happened to me because before that particular event, I thought that a kiss was one of those peculiar things that elevate your soul to the edges of heaven. Of course, the episode did not uplift anything from me to the limits of heaven; nevertheless, the experience left a sweet voice recorded inside my brain that still echoes within me when I recall it.
Before I met this girl, I was most interested in playing with my friends than thinking in girls. The first time I ever saw her was at her birthday party, where I was invited, along with a bunch of other boys and girls. I was around 12 years old then. From that day on the image of that little girl kept spinning inside my head. I remember thinking about her almost all day long, except during sleep hours.
She was the kind of girl that every young boy would want to exchange smiles during the first awakenings to love. She had an exquisite appearance with long black hair, a pony tail, red cheeks, and a sweet smile, evoking the purity of her soul. Most of the times, she wore colorful dresses, and shoes printed with flowers or butterflies. I think her mother had excellent taste for her daughter’s wardrobe. That outfit made her seem pretty attractive and feminine.
How a kiss should be given?
An Evening at the Movies
Her mother and mine were close friends. They used to visit each other frequently, or in every occasion they believe relevant, such as a holyday or a birthday party. Everyone, in my circle of friends knew I had a crush on her. It was during those occasional gatherings that I had the chance to see her. We attended different schools, and we lived in distant neighborhoods from each other. So the only opportunity to see her was on those specific occasions.
The day arrived when we finally arranged to go out together. The outing was going to be at a movie theater. The title of the movie was going to be chosen at the date and site of the theater. We took the bus on a ride of about half of an hour. On our way, we hardly spoke to each other. I was nervous and so was she. I remember I was staring straight towards the front of the bus, wanting to say something; however, unable to articulate a word.
Once at the movie theater, we took a look at the movie synopsis. Not knowing what we wanted to watch, we stared at every movie title. Every now and then, we would cross each other’s eyes, for brief moments just to continue searching for the right movie title. Throughout the ordeal, we hardly had spoken a word, allowing the words from the soul speak out from within. Finally, I bought the tickets.
Snacks at the Movies
Popcorn and Soda Cups with Straw
I had heard stories about outings to the movie theater with your first date, and the happenings occurring throughout the ordeal. I was very nervous! I remember taking a seat beside her. Not finding a topic to talk about, we waited for the movie to start. Suddenly! The first movie shots appeared on the screen. I was relieved! This was going to give me the chance to relax my soul.
After approximately 15 minutes at the theater, I wasn't aware of anything, except that at a close distance from me, there was the most enchanting girl that I had ever seen in my entire life. I would have wanted to concentrate on the movie, but for my pleasure, all my thoughts were focused on the little soul who was honoring me with her company.
I realized that there was something missing! Popcorn and sodas are the conventional material for the occasion, I thought. Without saying a word, I stood up from my seat and headed directly to the movie theater lobby. I bought two paper bags of popcorn and two fountain soda cups with straw. I was feeling like a gentleman trying to charm a precious princess.
The Memory of your first Kiss Remains Forever
I could not hide my bashfulness for having left her alone for an immense lapse of time (five minutes). For the rest of the time ahead, both of us maintained our hands and mouths busy. It did not occur to me to offer her popcorn since she had her own. I think this is the only time when my mind stopped thinking about her. So I got carried away by the temptation of gluttony, and enjoyed the snacks.
While on a movie theater, time passes too slow, or perhaps, you have more time to think. After the snack indulgence, I wanted to express myself, but the nervousness was still present. I turned to see her, she glanced at me sideways. I deduced she was very interested in the movie. I stared at the movie undecidedly, and start biting my nails, which is a habit that has accompanied me throughout my entire life.
Finally, we were on the same route that brought us to the theater, heading back home. I was happy, and so was her by the look in her eyes. I articulated the first words of the evening. "Did you enjoy the movie?" I asked shyly. "Yes" She answered sweetly. I held her hand, wanting to transmit my feelings about her, and kissed her on the cheek. At that very moment, she turned around and directed her sight straight to my eyes.
Our faces were insignificantly a bit of a distance apart. Both of us were exploring every single feature of our faces. From the neck up to the top of the head; and from the left to the right side of our faces. And then again straight to the eyes. This incessantly clash of glimpses went on for a few seconds, which seemed like an eternity, at least for me. In an instant, like steel and magnet, our desires, souls, thoughts and flesh joined together in a kiss.
Until that moment, I had never kissed a girl. Sensing her humid lips over mine, I closed my eyes, and opened my lips a little, as I had seen in the movies. At this moment, we let the spreading of saliva flow either side of our souls. In the middle of our first kiss, I heard the echoes of the clash of our teeth, ringing inside my ears. Our lips separated, we stared at each other, and kissed one more time. The noisy collision of teeth echoed inside my ears again. "Ï didn't know kisses supposed to be like this." I thought.
Over time we both learned to how to kiss, getting rid of the noisy sounds. I will always remember the girl whom I gave my first kiss; however, when trying to recall the title and plot of the movie, I hardly remember anything. The best memories from that event are hidden deep inside my soul. I guess that is something that's going to remain forever...
