it started with lightbulbs, and it ended with jail.

and when she looked back on it it seemed suitable, like the lightbulb he dropped on her desk was the universe's way of saying that this [whatever this was] was a great idea.

but it wasn't just lightbulbs. every day there was something new, a perfectly random little something dropped on her desk without a word of acknowledgment, like a cat bringing home dead things as gifts [but much cuter, of course] and every day she would tap her fingers with anticipation, just waiting for him to arrive with something new.

and they were always silent in class, barely speaking more than a few words to each other [maybe because he always slept right through the lesson]. but late at night they would spend hour upon hour talking to each other, and she would struggle to keep her eyes open so that she wouldn't have to say goodnight, because she knew, after not very long at all, that he was special.

and for months they were like that - best friends, talking nonstop, staying up late and talking each other through all the crises that teenagers are prone to. sometimes they would tiptoe around the idea of romance, as though they were both afraid to really say it out loud. because really things were good the way they were, and why should anything ever change?

***

in a high school theater, on a big black stage, hidden from the rest of their class by a half painted wooden jail, he kissed her for the first time. and for the second time. and for the third time, too.

it started with lightbulbs, and it ended with jail.

and, she thought as she snuggled into his arms, jail had never been so romantic.
A little something I wrote for my boyfriend. This all really happened - when I went to see the play that the jail set was for, all I could think was 'he kissed me behind that!' :love:

This is wonderful. So sweet and romantic but not in an overbearing or cliche way. Nice job!
