WonHundred Word Wednesday: Young Love

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.

Check out the others:


  1. haha that's awesome. Guess he doesn't want his heart to grow fonder. :)

  2. haha. Just like a guy. And if it worked once, it will work again.

  3. Awesome! Loved the last line! (moving on. . . )

  4. Aw! Poor kid. Guess he got over Betty fast though. I remember those days. :)

  5. lol, the days of bouncing back so quickly.

  6. Perfect! Love that her dad's watching the whole time -- that's good parenting :D
