Tell me all about it, who approached first, where did it happen, how was your attention caught? :)
Most Helpful Girl
we were both three. not long after i started pre-school with my best friend Selina i was bullied constantly. i was quiet and shy and some girls a few months older than us would bully me for it. one day when the head bully, Isabelle, snatched the toy i was playing with away and pushed me to the ground i heard someone shout "Teacher Kayla! Isabelle pushed Janine down!" and he dragged our teacher to when i was crying and reprimanded the bully "You're not allowed to push people down Isabelle!" were the exact words he used. after a while i noticed him more in my pre-school class and he sat with me during story time and lunch time. he told me that his name was Matthew. he promised to keep me safe and be my prince charming and knight in shining armour. i remember telling my mum about how he was going to stay with me forever and we were going to live happily ever after. i fell for him even before i knew it was possible to love someone outside of family.
we went to the same primary school and there he also protected me against bullies. we started calling each other "Matty" and "Janni" (thus my username here) and it became our special nicknames. still i never thought he would have liked me back, and i tried not to show it too much, not wanting to be disappointed. he was popular for a primary school kid. athletic, smart, good looking, well behaved. SRC, school captain, school sports captain, house captain, all A student and always picked to model for our annual school photoshoot.
we entered the same high school and he still protected me. against some girls who tried to pull me into a cat fight, a group of guys who tried to rape me. when we were 14 everyone started "dating" each other and holding hands meant being boyfriend and girlfriend. that's when he asked me out for dinner and a movie. while other people lasted a couple of hours or a few days, we approach 4 years and 9 months soon.0
