First Infatuation

Who was your first childhood crush? What would you say to that person if you saw him/her again?

Hmmm, now here is the thing. I am not sure which one is my first true crush (there have been so many) because I met one lady when I was 11 and the other was when I was 12 or 13 but I think it is the latter. That’s probably because I became aware of sex and the womanly body at the age of 12.

Not much to say, this girl was almost 2 years older and she was in the same school as me, in the class ahead of me. Her name was Sophia and she was fair, tall and had thick curly hair. I kinda fell in crush with her almost immediately on seeing her but it took me many months before I got the guts to speak to her. We ended up becoming friends but she never really knew about my intense crush on her (I think she knew but thought of me as a cute younger kid) and I never really spoke about it to more than a couple of friends at my school.

She left the school the next year and I think I only saw her once or twice since. A few years later back in 1997 I saw her while at the bus stand and I smiled at her and she recognized me and smiled back at me. That was the last time I ever saw her. I wonder what she is doing now. If I saw her again, I would say hi and talk a bit about the old days back in our school.
