The One

by Jennifer Hanning
Originally published by on 12/12/2012

The day he came to town, my world changed from pastels to vividly bright colours. Just looking at him spreads warmth and comfort through me.

He's the one. I love him and I will be brave. I don't know when or where it will end--I only know it must begin.

I walk up the path to his front door and enter without knocking. Silently, I climb the stairs and stand in the doorway of his bedroom.

"Tyler," I say, "d'you want to be my best friend?"

"Nah," he replies, without looking up from his lego, "you're just a girl."
