We sat on a stone seat beside the pond in the sun. Winter was coming so we knew that the sun wouldn't be here for long. Oh how i loved the feeling of the heat on my skin it made  me feel nice and warm. Kyra and I would sit down on the same stone everyday straight after school. I loved spending time with kyra, most of the time it felt like she was the only person who listened to me and understood me at times. 

It was getting dark and the day was coming to an end meaning that we both had to go home and do homework for school tomorrow. Me and Kyra were both doing important exams this year. It was already stressful with my parents getting me a tutor for the weekends which I really hated. Me and Kyra grew up in the same neighbourhood, she was always my best friend since the age of seven, we told eachother everything, we were pretty much inseparable. "Your Turn" she said as she handed me a skinny stone pebble. She was looking up at me with her beautiful brown eyes and her cute freckles that made her more beautiful and innocent then she actually was, my best friend Kyra. I took the pebble out of her hand, she gave me a quick smile and said "Cmon, your going to have to beat me sometime." We used to always throw stones as far as possible into the pond everyday after school, it was some sort of routine for us, we would see who could get further than the other, Kyra used always win. "Are you nervous about the exams." I asked her just before i threw my stone pebble into the pond. She then jumped up from the stone seat and picked up another pebble from the ground."No, im seventeen in a couple of weeks, might just get a car and forget that this place ever existed." 

When she said that i got this stunning pain in my heart. The only other time I would feel like this was if a close relative of mine passed away. "Going away.?what do you mean.?" I said so sadly that i even noticed it myself."This place is like painful memories to me, everytime I wake up all I think about are the bad things that happend or the bad things that possibly are going to happen." My heart got that feeling again but this time it was worse much worse."But what about the good times, you cant just leave our friendship behind like it never happend" this time i was shouting, not fully but my voice raised tempo slightly. "Jordan, this is the way i feel, I dont care what anyone else thinks, I have made up my mind and thats that." After all the years i knew Kyra we never got into a single argument or never fought before. I sat back down on the stone seat and Kyra sat down beside me and grabbed my hand with her two hands and said "I Will never forget you Jordan." My mind was full of sadness and the one and only best friend that i had is going to leave me, who was I going to turn to when things weren't going my way now.? who would be there when i needed an opinion and advice, nobody. It was now or never I would never get this chance again. I leaned in to kiss her, my head tilted left then I found her mouth I was expecting her to push away but she didn't our lips locked and Kyra moved my hands into position that they fitted perfectly with eachother. It was my first kiss and from what I know it was Kyra's aswell. When we broke away from our kiss we hugged eachother instantly. I could tell that she was crying. A tear or two also dropped down from my eyes and I could see the print of my tears on Kyra's school uniform. "Dont leave me Kyra please dont leave me." The sound of my words made her cry harder and I could feel her heartbeat. I released the hug and put my lips to her forehead and gave her a deep kiss. She looked at me with the most amazing smile and we kissed again.

The weeks went by and even that day with Kyra was one day that i wouldn't or couldn't forget, the first time me and Kyra showed love towards eachother. Her mind was still unchanged but she wasn't running away eitheir. Her dad got a new job in a small village a couple of hundred miles away from our hometown, this still meant that i would never see Kyra again. We still kept in touch by letters but it wasn't the same, and we wouldn't have those days by the pond sitting on the stone seat by the pond. The day she was leaving we went to the pond holding hands on our whole journey. We went down to the stone seat and engraved our names into the stone seat so we would never forget that place, our beautiful sanctuary. Before she left i told her that she was my first love and that would never change she then whispered into my ear saying that she loved me, and would never forget me. My heart was officially broken.
