It all started in 2008 on the local ice rink. We met online about 6 months earlier and let me tell you, we were not friends. Not at all! But, one of his friends and one of my girls fell in love over the E-net and wanted to meet. I came along with her, and he came along with him. I can't remember saying anything to Kenneth. All I remember was that I did not want to go flat on my face because he could skate pretty good and I was a total disaster. Still am by the way, haha.
A few months later he started dating someone, and another few months later I started dating the brother of his best friend at the time. We were young and immature and oh boy, were we enemies! I remember a certain conversation where he claimed I couldn't even match the tip of his girlfriends pinky. I may or may not have been a liiiiittle bit in love with him already at that time. And I may or may not have felt a little heart broken when he said that.
Fast foward one year. we're now March 2009. He had broken up with her, and I just broke up with my ex as well. I was an emotional wrack at that time, to say the least, and was looking for comfort and trying to get back up on my feet. I don't know how it came to be, but somehow we started a conversation and it ended with me promesing him to be there when he returned from his holiday to Italy. When that day came, I was by the seaside with my girlfriends. I couldn't be there when his bus arrived and I didn't have his phonenumber. It all could have ended right there you guys. But it didn't! Remember that girlfriend of mine that fell in love with a friend of his back in 2008 at the ice rink? Those two had been together for almost a year now and I texted her and she texted her boyfriend to text me Kenneths phonenumber. Still following there? And then I texted Kenneth that I wouldn't be there to wait him up, like I promised. Our story could have ended there again. And it did. Because my phones battery died.
Fast forward to the 24th of May 2009. Kenneth and I have been texting each other occasionally for a month now. Then this movie that I really wanted to see came out (It was Knowing, don't judge my 17 year old self!). And Kenneth wanted to see it too. Date time! Oh my goodness, I was SO nervous! You know what part I hate the most about first dates? That awkward moment in the end when you are trying to decide wheter or not you should kiss him. I didn't do it.
One week Later, on June the 1st 2009. I was casually lying on my bed listening to the Backstreet Boys' Incomplete (Again, don't judge my 17 year old self!) on the iPod I got that Christmas, when my phone rang. It was a text message from Kenneth. And It would change my young life.
