I should say she wasn’t very
popular and was a little chunky but that was of no mind to me. I did the whole
thing and hired a car to take us to the prom and pick us up when it was over.
Some how she managed to get
into a nice dress that was tight on her and I gave her a pretty corsage. We did
the whole evening and I was surprised at how well she could dance.
boogie with the best of them. I made sure I paid attention to her and I think
she had the best time of her life.
There was something I tried
to ignore and that was, Lesley was there.
I found out her cousin’s date
cancelled out at the last minute so he convinced her to go with him.
her for I didn’t think I should get started with her while I was with a date.
A week later she came by to
see me and I didn’t want to admit it to myself but I was glad to see her.
She said I saw you at the
prom and I was glad to see you have a girl. I started to say she isn’t my girl
and explain what happened or how it happened I was with her but I decided to
let it slide.
I changed the subject by
asking how her father and her mother were and also her answer was curt and to
the point. “They are fine.”
Then she asked, how long I
had been dating the girl I was with and I said not long.
She said, “She seems nice and
she could really dance well.”
I said, “Yes she can do that.”
After a few more stabs at
conversation I decided I had enough of this nonsense so I came out and said; “What’s
going on. Do you have something you want
to say or ask? If you do then come on out with it.”
She just sat there and to
break the silence I said; “Are you going to strip to the waist for me again?”
She laughed at that and said,
“No I don’t think I’ll do that.”
I said; “Aw shucks I were a
She said, “I’m going to the
Nunnery and become a Nun.”
I said; “What! Have you lost
Then I could see that she was
serious and I apologized for my hasty remark. She said, “I have been planning
this for a long time. That is the reason I said I had a boy friend and wouldn’t
go with you.
I wavered a bit but when the
Sisters came to see me and told of the needs the church, and that they were
unable to meet them because of the lack of Nuns it got me back on track.
I wanted you to know this for
in the short time we knew each other I had developed strong feeling for you and
it caused a conflict in my soul. Even now I am struggling with my decision and
if you have as strong feelings for me then I don’t know if I could go through
Hearing this strongly
affected me for I had been resisting the feelings for her in order to have some
peace, but this knowledge was to be too much for me.
It was as if my heart had
melted within me and now I don’t know what to say or do. I certainly didn’t
want to be the cause of her not doing what she thought she should do but I have
suffered enough by not having her.
I couldn’t live, only exist
without her. What to do?
“It wouldn’t be fair not to
tell you how I feel.” I told her, “Without you I will just go through the
motions of living. Putting it simple I want you, I want you, I want you. But
you must make your decision exclusive of me and do what you want to do without
any outside influence except the obvious.”
I told her my plans are set.
“I will finish college so I
can take care of the one I love. I hope it will be you but I don’t want a wife
coming to me with a lot of baggage of unresolved issues that will haunt us the
rest of our lives. It will eventually tear us apart even though we love each
A question you must answer on
the other side is how much can you give to a cause when you are in love with
me. My best advice is to take some time for yourself and work it out alone.
The either go into the
Nunnery or come to me but whichever, I want you to know you have made the right
decision with absolutely no regrets and plan to live life to it’s fullest.
Once you have hashed it out and
made your decision (meaning you have decided the other one was wrong) you will
have escaped a life of misery.”
She said alright I will do it
for it sounds like the right thing to do.
At that moment I wanted to
hold her and never let go but the die was cast and it was something she had to
sort out for herself. I didn’t want her to come to me with unresolved issues
