I remember my first kiss. It was a blond haired boy who had the most gorgeous eyes. They always appeared to be dreamy as if he was thinking of something amazing. He became my first boyfriend, even though at 14 we had little understanding of what boyfriend and girlfriend was. Kissing was a popular past time, also holding hands and being together.
I'd always thought of us being together forever but he moved away and we grew apart. In fact, I regained my friendship with him recently and while I still have such wonderful memories of the past, a lifetime of things had changed.
In Susan V. Vaughn's latest book, Beyond Fate, her characters share one earth-shattering kiss and drift apart. But unlike my story, they do find a way back together....
