Chapter 1: High School


"Elizabeth, you know I love you right?" William said seriously. They were standing outside Elizabeth's door having just come back from the movies. William had been acting weird all night. Every time she went to kiss him or he her, he pulled back at the last minute. He wasn't very talkative either. Something was wrong, Elizabeth knew that much but she wouldn't push him. He would tell her when he was ready.

Elizabeth turned to him a little surprised. "Yes, of course. I love you too."

"I needed you to know that." He hesitantly leaned forward and kissed her. It was a short kiss but William made sure that all his feeling for her was poured into it.

"Are you okay?" Elizabeth asked him when they pulled back.

"I…" he smiled. "Yeah, I'm fine."

"Okay" Elizabeth agreed. "Well, I'll see you tomorrow." She turned to open her front door. "Bye Will." She walked inside and closed the door lightly.

"Goodbye Elizabeth" he whispered when she was gone. With a sigh, he turned to leave. His heart wrenched with every step he took and he wanted so much not to have to do this. He wished he could stay but he knew he couldn't and shouldn't. That didn't mean it didn't hurt like hell to leave her.z He loved her, truly and completely. He just hoped she'd remember that when he was gone.
