Okay just a few more seconds and I am out of school thank god I thought to myself as my mind drifted to what pile of books I’d read today. Ever since I moved to this little town I’d had no interest in any thing but my passion for the arts. I talked to no one but my family when I had to because I honestly resented them and my coworkers at my part time job at the coffee shop inside the biggest store in town. No it’s not a mall it’s a book store called “Magnolia”.
Magnolia was the owner a beautiful 25 year old woman who recently moved to town and opened the book store, and she was my only friend as I was hers she came from New York city wanting to settle down somewhere quaint. “Your insane for leaving New York.” I told her one day  as we drank coffee and read in the kids play area. “One day you’ll understand I did it for love one day you’ll meet your soul mate.” she told me over her copy of the Outsiders it was her favorite book “A true classic” She’d always said.. Okay I fibbed a little she did want to settle down somewhere quaint but only because that’s what her husband wanted., but if it weren’t for him she says she’d still be the owner of Magnolia but the one that she use to have in New York.. “I don’t believe in that soul mate shit” I told her mocking the word soul mate. “Yeah well when I was your age neither did I don’t worry it will come.” she said standing up and giving me a hug then she just walked away.  
“Brrrriiinnnggg!” the bell rang cutting into my flash back I stood and calmly walked out then just left I was the first one out of school I always was because I didn’t talk to anybody or use my locker. As I started my walk towards Magnolia’s it felt weird every walk I usually day dreamed, but today I could sense someone behind me. This caught me off guard because Magnolia’s was close to school if you cut through the back and that was the only thing that was on the road I was taking a one way path to Magnolia’s. Who in the world would know about this but me I thought to my self as I heard the other persons foot steps slap the pavement in rhythm with mine.
Walking inside I headed straight to the small coffee shop inside of Magnolia’s ordered a plain coffe and put in two creams and 5 sugars I’v always liked a lot of sugar I did this routinely weather I had school or not. On weekends I was here when it opened until it closed and on school days I was here when school got out till it closed. Drinking my coffee I headed straight to a table and plugged into my music and scribbled away at my novel until the sun went down.
As the sunset I watched grabbing the romance novel I was currently reading “Girlfriend material”. As I sat down in the kids section right next to a glass window staring up into the stars I caught someone’s gaze they were staring at me. There piercing grey eye’s I could understand now that’s why I’ve felt odd all day this kid’s had his eyes on me.
“Do you ever take a break from all this.” He said breaking the awkward moment between us. “No who would ever want to take a break from this?” I asked him as I threw my binder which was labeled “Poetry” that’s usually how I roped people in poetry then I dazed them with storys and novels and music. He calmly flipped it open to a random page and read. After a few pages he looked up at me and cleared his throat. “Good point well not all of us have natural born talent.” He said flipping me an adorable smile and slipping it back across the floor. “But”He said as he stood up and approached me after he sat down he finished with “Art never comes from happiness”. A smile made it’s way onto my lips “That’s one of my favorite sayings.” I said letting him in to my world I usually shut everyone but Magnolia out but he was …he was different.
I looked at him and study his body, he was built broad shoulders with a little muscle but still enough weight to fit my liking, he had dark tan skin obviously of Hispanic heritage, black hair spiked up on his head into a Mohawk, and piercing light grey eyes in the middle of all this darkness. “What?” He asked with a conceded smirk on his face realizing I was checking him out I mean I had the right he’d been doing it all day. “Do you go to school?” I asked lying because you cant just blurt out to some random guy oh nothing you just look amazing. “Yah we have like all the same classes together?” He said in a confused tone. “Oh I just I’m a bit absent minded.” I said as my cheeks flushed. “And let’s not forget anti-social.” he said picking my fae up by my chin. “Hey…” I said taking a pause realizing how our faces were inches apart then resuming.
“I have very interesting conversations with myself all day.” I said inching up closer to him. “Oh I’m sure.” He said back sarcastically and also inching a bit closer. “What about you make a bunch of friends at school and get real popular the only thing that seems to matter to most people in this small town.” I said a bit sharply this time not going closer. “No I’ve been trying to catch your attention. Because honestly your intriguingly beautiful.” He said back sweetly. Then he wrapped his hand around my waist and pulled me onto his lap with my legs jetting out from his body. “Well if it’s any constellation I usually don’t give anyone the time of my day.” I said slipping my arms around his neck. He slipped one hand from my hip to my head and lead me into a kiss on his tender lips.
“Well I usually don’t get kisses from damn near strangers.” He said as we pulled apart which had shaken me, because the kiss was amazing it was like none other I’d ever experienced. It was like he knew exactly how to make our lips fit like a lock and key. “Oh. Well I’m Candy my favorite color is red and I like long walks on short piers with dumb people.” I said after collecting my thoughts. “I’m Kyle my favorite color is black and I’m new in town.” He said with a smirk on jis face from my ease. “Got a favorite book Kyle?” I asked my stomach still doing flips from the kiss. “No, but I do love reading there are just to many good ones to have a favorite.” He explained my jaw dropped this is exactly how I explained myself to people word for word.
“What’s this?” He said twirling around my chain full of semimetal’s and the dog tag for my dad who was in he marines I hadn’t seen him since I was 5. “It’s a chain.” I said closing in like I did with everyone. He grabbed my hands and linked them with his and we intertwined our fingers I wrapped my egs all the way around his back. “Come on really.” He said with pleading grey eyes. “Okay it’s for my dad he’s in the marines I haven’t seen him since I was 5 this and his watch is all I have of him but seldom letters.” I said spilling more out than I had in years even to Magnolia. “Wow. Do you miss him?” he asked with a hurt look in his eye as if my feelings affected him. “Do you like breathing?” I teased back. He smirked and it sent a chill down my spine how in the world did I end up here I haven’t had a boyfriend since I left I mean I have barley talked to anyone my age since I moved here.
“You know I think this is the oddest thing I’ve ever done.” He said tracing circles on the small of my back. “Well you’re the first guy I’ve ever had stalk me, oh and only stranger I’ve ever kissed.” I said planting a small kiss on his lips it was just a brush but it gave me goose bumps like never before. “It’s not stalking.” He said obviously joking knowing his acts today were a bit stalker like. “Well how about tomorrow you walk with me not around me your eyes have thrown me off all day.” I said rubbing his hand with my thumb. “Sounds perfect” He said back.
Then he walked me home and kissed me goodbye. Past the next few days we walked to each class together holding hands and talking, sat next to each other in every class, ate lunch together, and got stares of confusion and jealousy from all genders and ages. We walked to Magnolias and drank coffe he read what I wrote and watched me while I wrote, and I would help him read and write not asking why he wanted my help I always assumed he just wanted me to do it with him. “
I’m opening up the dyslexia program soon maybe you’d want to join Kyle.” Magnolia said one day when we were all hanging out. “Why?” I asked confused Kyle doesn’t have dyslexia I thought. “Well dear you’re a good one on one teacher but I think  he would learn better if he wasn’t making out with his instructor.” Magnolia said back teasingly. “Excuse us for a moment please.” Kyle said picking me up off the ground with annoyance in his voice.
“What’s wrong?” I said concerned as he led me to a corner. “Look honey I have dyslexia.” He said with a hurt look in his eye staring past my cheek bone. “Oh… Did you just find out?” I asked confused still. “No I’ve known since I was in the 3rd grade but…. But you were just so in love with all of this I was to ashamed to tell you.” He said and a lone some tear streaked his cheek. “Baby I love you” I said, it was the first time I’d ever said it but I knew that no matter how much I said I didn’t believe I sole mates or love that he was the one… My one. “Nothing and no one will ever change that.” I said wiping the tear off his cheek. “I love you too honey thank you I’m just so ashamed of it I don’t read how other people do it’s like I’m some freak,” he said looking into my eyes and explaining himself. “You’re my freak and I wouldn’t have you any other way.” I said pecking his cheek and leading him back to Magnolia.
We spent the rest of high school like this and on his 18th birthday in July we moved to New York City. Where we opened up a quaint bookstore called “Ailongam” where we held a free course for dyslexic people of all ages, I became a published writer of a romance novel series about a little girl and her path to discovering love
