Love begins with attraction and our attraction started in an online chat room. The beauty of the internet is you can be whoever you want to be. I can let my guard down and show who I really am. I’m no longer the shy girl who doesn’t fit in. I’m someone with a purpose, someone worth listening to. I’m someone worth loving. The world doesn’t need to know I’m only seventeen. One little lie about my age isnt going to hurt. Eli is everything I’ve ever wanted in a relationship. He’s funny, sweet and so damn sexy. We’ve never met, but our connection is strong. He wants to meet me and more than anything I want to meet him. I want to feel him in my arms, I want to see if our relationship is as strong in person as it is online. So we do. And it is. It’s wonderful and amazing and everything I hoped it would be. But in the chat room, I told a little white lie about something significant. And lies, however big or small, always catch up with you. Mine caught up with me in my History Classroom.
