His First Kiss!

Rahul finished his 12th and joined engineering . He was most girls favourite, but never got a chance to fall in love as he was always into studies to get seat in good college for Bachelor’s. Finally he joined engineering and got his own set of friends who were quite decent and more studious type (not first benchers though). As the days passed by , Rahul happen to meet a girl by name Ria through common friends . She was pretty enough and both exchanged their number and started phone dating for quite sometime . After 2-3 months they got more close and started meeting often and got attracted to each other more day by day . Please note , Ria was just 16 and Rahul was about 18years old.

Hi One evening as usual Rahul and Ria met and it so happened that she suddenly kissed him. It was first kiss for Rahul and a big surprise. However Ria had a boyfriend in the past and had broken up. Am not very sure if it was first for her. He was all thrilled and excited. After this kissing and hugging became a common thing between them. Now the actual problem started . As Ria was in her teens , she was more spirited and eager to try new things everyday in the relationship and Rahul was a little controlled as he was concerned about their age and wanted to take things slow like some good boys on earth.

Days were passing by and one day , Ria calls Rahul and tell him they should get more physical. Rahul was stunned and smiled at her because he knew he should give everything sometime and not to rush things. She went on pushing things and he did not want to indulge in the act considering both of their age and he also felt study is more important than this diversion for both of them. However he tried explaining to her , but she was not in the mindset to listen . More he tried to explain her things , more she felt, he doesn’t love her and feel her as his own. This created a gap between them and she started hanging out with her other friends more and less meetings with Rahul. Generally , Rahul is not someone who controls anybody and he gave her freedom to be the way she wants. After all this Rahul started experiencing negative vibes with Ria’s behaviour and her friends circle. She became more outgoing and drinking more often with wrong set of friends and always wanted to party with boys and stay over at their place. One fine day Ria calls Rahul to say , things aren’t working as great as she thought it would be and also she would want to end things with him as she is getting spark with someone else and she is more comfortable with the new boy she met a while ago. Obviously Rahul was shattered that everything ended so quickly as everything looked like a dream. Because it was his first Love with a first kiss experience. Post that for few months he was sad and sulked and then, it was time to move on. As he was in engineering every year he had juniors coming in. He found a next girl who was prettier than the first one. Haha! The story ends here.

Abraham’s Story

My First Love

Somewhere in the mid 90’s, between the transition from primary to high school, I fell in love with this girl. Love or what was it, a crush maybe? She was beautiful, well mannered, loving and caring. Of my vivid recollections of her, she would come in a big caramel colored car with her dad. Her parents were our family friends as well, they were special to us. We would hang out often doing this and that. She was the love of my life, I was a shy guy and had no courage to speak to her openly, I had a crush over her. Slowly things changed, her father passed on, we continued to remain friends. We would visit each other’s homes after Sunday Mass.

Somehow although shy, I made up my mind and confessed my love to her. It was a smooth start, suddenly it was like the stars aligned in my favor, like she knew it was bound to happen, we knew we were in love and I filled that empty space with those three magical words, with that we were officially a couple, alright, a mini couple if there is something like that. We were lovers for the very first time in our lives. That bliss!

I vividly remember that moment, a very cold December evening, about 8 maybe.. clear skies with plenty of stars, walking towards her farm gates, our parents ahead of us unaware of what was happening. I told her that I was madly in love with her and that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her, it was a mutual feeling. That long walk and each moment spent was unforgettable. There are no words to describe how I felt at that moment. Ecstatic. I was excited to meet her the next day but the winter holidays had just begun, no school, I had to wait till Sunday, after mass. The very thought of it was frustrating. I tried all kinds of things to get a glimpse, to meet but nothing seemed to work. I was angry and sad at the same time. Teenage pangs! To my utter delight, she happened to come home that evening. My joy knew no bounds. I was so in love that I really didn’t know what was happening with me, I became more aware of my surroundings, the people around me, everyday was like a new day. I appreciated my family, my friends and loved them all the more. Her and me being in the same school, my school days were all the more memorable and I’ll cherish them for ever. Everything with that lovely curly haired girl was beautiful, the innocence of that love. There was nothing more I ever wanted.

Being in love for the first time or rather my first love taught me a lot many things along the way. First and foremost to be patient and to slow down, everything comes to you. As I said life seemed perfect, no hurdles. I was madly in love with her. Over time, life has its own twists and turns which many might not understand. Nothing is perfect, nothing in life is permanent. I had the pleasure of being in love, the most beautiful experience, something i would treasure all my life. A love that i would never forget. Love is beautiful indeed! ❤️
