I had always a negative attitude toward everything, that was probably why I didnít have friends. When my dad got the new job out of town, he thought it was a good idea, he told me that maybe now was the best time to change my attitude and make new friends.
I remember like if it was yesterday, I was in a class in which I knew no one. Just when I was about to ask the teacher is I could change my schedule, he walked in, he walked across the room and over to the teacherís desk, and stood next to me, while the teacher checked his schedule, she then ask me what I wanted and I said never mind and back to my seat I went. He stood in the middle of the class, thinking what side he should choose, he then chose the seat next to me, and smiled as he sat down. He had the most beautiful smile and dimples I had ever seen. He then asked me a question, his voice was rough, but sweet at the same time, he asked me if I knew anyone, and that was when we started a conversation. I told him that I did not know anyone, because I wasnít from here, I also told him that I had no friends, because of my attitude, I told him I was from Boston, and moved here because my dad had gotten a job here. As I told him my story, he seemed rather interested. Then I stopped and ask him if he knew anyone, he said no, not anyone in this class, but he was from Laredo, and he didnít like it there. That was something we both agreed on. He then asked me what I liked, I desperately wanted to tell him, I liked him, I wanted to tell him it was love at first sight, and how he made me feel different just talking to him, but I didnít I just told him I liked rock music, we then agreed on that too. We talked all period long, until the bell rang, and he said see you tomorrow. After that, I noticed I felt and acted different. Ever since that day I had a mission and that was not to be absent any day of the year. I changed my attitude towards everything. My parents were glad that I finally got used to Laredo, and how I made friends, but they didnít know it was thanks to love.
Even though he has a girlfriend now, and itís not me, itís okay because my opinion is that I think friendship last longer than relationships. He tells me all the time that Iím his best friend, he knows how I felt for him, but he tells me that he never asked me out because, he knew if we ever broke up, we would never have the same relationship we have now. So I want to thank him, for changing me, and having to do with a big part of my life.
