She was his dream when he was young,
He loved her, long before his love was formed;
She turned his head, twisted his mind,
She was, but all his heart could find...

At twelve, he spoke his first words to her..
Big brave words, a step too far;
He got turned down, but he didn't bend,
She was his, she just had to be at the end...

And he, in love, he stayed in that place
Of flutters, of twinkles, for one pretty face,
Yeah he, for love, he stayed in that place
Had the hots for a girl, and he didn't hesitate...

When he was seventeen, he tried again,
This time more confident, his lines insane..
He spoke of dreams, of love, of aims,
He woulda convinced me, but she chose the same..

Now a teenager, little man was hurt,
For he hadn't seen it coming, his confidence was shot..
And though once is beaten, and twice is shy,
This little man vowed, that he'd never cease to try...

And he, in love, he stayed in that place
Of flutters, of twinkles, for one pretty face,
Yeah he, for love, he stayed in that place
Had the hots for a girl, and he didn't hesitate...

His friends told him 'man, let that girl go',
But in his heart he knew, that he'd never do so..
Even when his parents said, 'boy you're wasting your time',
He smiled and told em, 'that pretty girl will be mine'..

And so, when he was 'bout Twenty six,
Now a man, our hero, he got his first kiss..
From her no less, she who was to change his life,
No, not pretty girl, he'd given up on her when she became a wife...

And he, hot tailed it outta that place
Years of hurt, of heartbreak, for one pretty face,
Yeah he, hot tailed it outta that place
Lost the hots for a girl, and he didn't hesitate...

THE END maybe, or the beginning of numerous other versions?

I found @calluna's Hot Tails this morning, and it stirred a part of me long left in limbo.
It had been a few days since I had any inspiration, and I'd only wanted to remind myself of her Tell a Story to me prompt when I checked her page (as I promised I'd put in an entry). But Calluna has a way with words that just gets me... (Forgive me Cal, for not asking...)

And thirty minutes later this was birthed. Hope someone finds it pleasant...

This is amazing! And the ages, it could all be one story, I am so glad that the muse that moves between us carried with her the notes so you could write this beautiful mirror <3

And of course you don't need to ask... for you already know the answer...
