Nadie más, que yo conociera, usaba unos zapatos tan extraordinarios. Las palabras de mi madre aparecían a menudo en mi cabeza, pero yo todavía las quería borrar. En el verano después del décimo grado, Mike y yo pasamos más tiempo juntos, en compañía de su novia, también conocida como mi mejor amiga, y otros. Ese verano Mike partió hacia México en un programa para aprender español. Me di cuenta que en verdad lo extrañaba. Cuando regresó en agosto, me llamó y vino a casa. Se veía tan adorable con la piel bronceada y su porte mundano.
De pronto comprendí que ella estaba tan sola como yo. “Está bien … mamá”, respondí. A la siguiente semana conocí a mis nuevos abuelos, tía, tío y primos. Fue una sensación curiosa, pero bonita, estar con extraños que me abrazaban como si ya me quisieran. Cuando me mudé a casa de mamá, por primera vez tuve mi habitación propia. Estaba tapizada y tenía un sobrecama que hacía juego, una cómoda antigua y un armario grande. Yo sólo llevaba poca ropa en una bolsa de papel marrón. “No te preocupes”, exclamó mamá.
DE CUALQUIER MODO NO SALÍ CON ELLA. ¡Lo que peor sienta es pensar que tal vez pude haberlo hecho! Jack Schlatter Mi espectacular primer beso Yo fui una adolescente muy tímida, igual que mi primer novio. Estábamos en el segundo año de secundaria, en una ciudad pequeña. Ya llevábamos saliendo juntos seis meses, siempre nerviosamente tomados de la mano, viendo en verdad películas y hablando de nada en particular. Muchas veces casi llegamos a besarnos, ambos sabíamos que queríamos un beso, pero ninguno tenía el valor de dar el primer paso.
