PROMPT: You know what they say...
It started with a movie. I asked Betty. She accepted. Afterward on her porch, I said goodnight seven times, hoping for a kiss, until her father flicked the light off and on. I said goodnight one more time and turned to go, but she reached up on her tiptoes and kissed me on the cheek.
That spot burned all the way home. And I knew I was in love.
The next day at school she told me. “I’m moving to Arkansas.”
Mom said, “You know what they say… ‘Absence makes the heart grow fonder.’”
I asked Paula to a movie.
