Jonathan has come a long way since his and Rieko’s failed relationship… his first-but not last-try at love. She was a pretty girl, but he learned to actually get to know the person first after he broke up with her.
Now, he’s married to his best friend, and now wife, Yumiko. I wanted a chance at what he had.
I wondered what I was doing wrong, when I remembered something my Mom told me: “If you want something, you have to go for it! Nobody knows what you want but you.”
So I went to the gym, and decided if I saw someone I thought could be nice, I’d talk to them. After all, Jonathan first talked to Yumiko at the pool in high school.
I saw this nice looking guy running on the treadmill.
“Selena,” I whispered to myself, “you can do this! Just say hi.”
“Hi.” He said to me.
“Umm, hi there.”
“So, tell me about you.”
“My name’s Selena…” I started.
“Selena’s a pretty name.”
“My name’s Ramon.”
I walked out of there feeling on top of the world. This guy was amazing. He was even family-oriented like me! I liked him a lot. A whole lot. I was so so so so so happy when he asked me out, only an hour after he got my number. Ramon and I were totally on the same page.
“Selfie for the moment?”
“Pictures last way longer anyway.”
“Look at that!” I grinned.
“Send it to me!”
“Have you ever dated someone before, Selena?”
“No. What about you? Have you dated someone?”
“I wouldn’t call it dating…anyway, I think you’re amazing.”
“Me?” I asked, laughing.
He pulled me into a hug, and I smiled the whole time, I wanted to remember this moment.
“Hey, Selena, could you get off now?”
“Oh, yeah yeah.” I blushed. This guy was so hot. Those eyes, that body.
“Hey, girl, don’t get me wrong or anything, you are hot. I just think we should, you know, save it for later, if you know what I mean.”
I knew what he meant. I was thrilled, there was gonna be a later. “Yeah. Of course.”
“See ya later, girl.”
I invited him over all the time, like all the time. Jonathan and Yumiko were always talking about us. All good things, I’m sure.
I know that our relationship was going fast, but he was just perfect! It really is my turn…for everything: for love; I felt Ramon was the one, for family; Once we were married, I couldn’t wait to have kids…for everything I’ve ever wanted.
A/N: I’d really like your feedback on Selena. I want her to be different from her mom! 😉
