Touch, sweet touch
You’ve given me too much to feel
You’ve almost convinced me I’m real
I need something more
I need something.. more…

When I was a kid, I manifested the idea of beauty faster than other kids. When I say beauty, I don’t just mean a person is really good looking. No, when I say beauty, I mean I could look into a person’s soul and see what makes them special. So when I saw Anna, I could say she was beautiful to me. However, Anna did not see the beauty I could see.
According to the social norm, Anna was mostly average compared to other girls. She was not as skinny as the other girls. Other kids did not consider her pretty. They did not consider her too much at all. She was very quiet and shy, with a tinge of sadness behind her eyes. Her parents divorced when she was young, so her idea of love was fragile. There was a sadness there that should not have been there in a young person’s life. I could not bear the sight of Anna sad, so I showed her that people like me out there care about her.
I went to hang out with her for a little. We’ve met before this encounter, so no introductions were necessary. I don’t remember all the details since it was all so long ago, but eventually it ended up with me kissing her on the cheek. Since we are at a young age, she was disgusted by my action, and I found her reaction humorous. The following days involved me making kissing threats to her, and Anna would run off trying to avoid my gesture. Maybe part of this action was because I was a boy growing into his hormones, but another part wanted to show Anna was as beautiful as any other girl.
A few years later, we go our separate ways, both going to different schools. I didn’t hear from Anna after that. Checking her social media, she has really blossomed into the most beautiful, both appearance and personality, of the rest of our classmates. She has a boyfriend who appears to be very good to her, and I am extremely happy for her. I don’t know how much influence I had on her, but I like to believe she was very grateful for my caring heart.
