Throughout the rest of practice she would periodically "show up" beside us with a smile but as practice was ending she came over and squatted down beside him and said: "I want to kiss you." I smiled at her and said: "O.K. sweetie - that is very nice but no kissing at cheerleading practise, O.K?. Say goodbye to Will and maybe you'll see him at another practice."
But my fears for Will somehow seem scarier. I guess because I have always been afraid to be alone and therefore, never have been. The thought of him being alone someday seems unimaginable. But he's not me. Maybe he'll never have the desire for that type of a relationship in his life. Or maybe he'll meet someone who will see him for who he really is - a beautiful person with a beautiful heart. I might be a little biased but I think he's a good catch!
