This guy here, his name is Benjamin. But I call him my lovebug. First off let me tell you guys about how we even met, it’s pretty interesting. I saw him around school, i didnt think he was THAT cute at first maybe because I would always just glance at him when he was with friends and never got that “look”. Anyway, at the end of the year I had a new english class a whole new set of classmates and a weird funny teacher but when I heard his name being called for roll, I looked for the hand that rose and there he was.. sitting sort of infront of me, high out of his mind and late to class. How attractive.. Haha. After that I remembering telling a friend that I thought he was cute and that I was pretty lucky to have him in my sight every morning.. but that didn’t last for long. He started coming to class less and less, I said hi to him twice.. and eventually I never same him again. His name wasn’t called for roll anymore and his seat was empty. Wow, the one guy I finally had a secret crush on was no longer there. Thank God for Facebook (I am literally thanking God for this because this is where it get’s better) I found him, he messaged me and asked for my number, as I did. I remember it was the night before he started at a new school.. and I wanted him to text me that night but he said he needed to rest up. We started texting everyday.. nothing flirty more like friends I even texted him crying one day right after I had hit another car and he assured me that it wasn’t going to be my last and that he’s hit signs and other things it made me feel better. A few days after that I got a random text from asking me if he could take me out to the movies, I said yes. I remember the night after work I was rushing home to change clothes and for him to pick me up. It was a rainy night and we watched Contraband, he annoyed me the whole movie. I was like what the hell did I just get myself into? This guy’s really cute but is ruining this movie by telling me to kiss him. Who does that? I ignored him and eventually kissed him to make him be quiet. After the movie it was pouring rain outside. And we held hands on the way to his car after stepping in a huge puddle together both of our shoes were drenched and slushy. (If he were to read this he wouldn’t remember because of how high he was >:( ) After forcing me to kiss him and I sort of kissed him back, we went on another date. Soon after he asked me to be his girlfriend after a date we had.. I said yes OF COURSE. After pissing me off multiple times I broke up with him and didn’t care if we ever talked after.. but one day he drove over to my house asking for another chance ; this happened about times because he kept pissing me off with his dumb actions. WE hit 4 months of being together and he kept most of his promises, we saw eachother every day of every month after. I never got sick of him, I couldn’t get enough of him. He became a sweetheart. Cuddling all the time, babying me, spoiling me, taking care of me, and most of all loving me. He told me he loved me around our 2 months, crazy fast but we both felt it. The day he left for tahoe, he drove to my house picked me up and told me ” Marissa, I’m in love with you” and kissed me. I was like in love? or you love me? he said “both, its the same thing to me” I laughed. I was in love with Ben. He has been my angel and protector since I gave him my heart. He’s been the best to me. Gave me a promise ring, I ordered his ring i know it’s later than I anticipated but as long as we both have our rings our committment to eachother is strong. He’s taken me places I’ve never been, showed me off to his family, offered to take me on vacation to a beachhouse right by the ocean and in those 5 days of being with him on vacation I’ve never felt so happy. I got to sleep a whole night, a whole nights with him. We bathed with eachother, he made me coffee in the morning and its not the first time he’s done that, he always does that. but it was just really amazing being away from the boring city with him for a few days. Anyway, this guy has made my life so much more live and happier. I couldn’t ask for a better best friend/ lover. Who else can you say takes care of you better than you take care of yourself, spoils you, takes you in as his everything, loves your baby sister like he loves his family, and most of all loves you like no one else. He is a blessing to me. and Mac. Mac is our dog that we call our son.. but i’ll rant about Mac and how he came into our lives another day. He’s a couple months old, pit bull puppy who we’re having a hard time trying to train, but its all worth it in the end because I go to bed every night the happiest girl in the world.
