"__________, this is Toni," your mother said, "his mother and I have some business to discuss. Why don't you go play?"
You nodded and held your Bob the Tomato plushie tighter.
Toni was play with blocks with two babies, when he looked up you could see his eyes brighten. "Hi!"
You waved shyly.
"I'm Toni, who are you?"
"Do you want to play with me?"
You nodded and sat down.
He pointed to the two babies, "This is Lovi and Feli."
Bob creased as you held him tighter.
"Do you like tomatoes?"
Looking down you noticed he had noticed your toy. "Y-yes."
He smiled, he was missing his two front teeth, "I think you and I will become best friends."
Toni could remember to this day how he met __________. She was so shy when he first met her, now she was bubbly and outgoing like he was.
It had been around two years ago that he realized he didn't like ___________ anymore. There was no way he could ever view her as a friend ever again. He was in love with her, it was like one day they were playing outside rough housing in the mud and the next day he thought she was the most beautiful girl in the world.
Crushes, girlfriends, girls had come and gone. But __________ was still there.
Boys in her life had come and gone but he was still there.
And today he was going to risk it all.
"__________, I like you."
Your eyes spoke of merriment, "I know, and I like you too. You're my best friend."
"No. _________ I mean…aw crap. I love you!"
"I've been in love with you since we were sixteen," he said turning red.
Suddenly the two of you fell over as you kissed him quickly on the lips. "I love you too."
