Sharon and I boarded the bus Friday afternoon and settled down for the two hour ride back home. We had been a "Couple" at LHS for about three weeks and my 16 year old heart was bursting with a teenagers first dive into falling in love.
Sharon was taking notes from one of her text books which was normal procedure for the first hour of the trip.
She closed the book, leaned over and gently kissed me on the lips.
I took Sharon's hands in mine and looked her straight in the eye and said it. "I love you!"
Sharon just stared at me for what seemed an eternity, then kissed me! She kissed me hard, wrapped both her arms around me and hugged me just as hard.
Sharon had a tear in her eye when she said, "I love you too."
That was many, many years ago, but still a moment I'll always cherish and a moment I would love to do one more time.
