It all began at the school playground during recess one sunny day. Samantha Harris had been playing alone once again when suddenly she was approached by a dirty blonde haired boy with deep green eyes.

boy - "Hey, what are your doing?"
Samantha - "Catching bugs,"
Boy - "Bugs? but, your a girl, aren't you scared of bugs?"
Samantha - "No way, they are cool!"
The boy smiled, "Yeah totally! Can i play too? My name is Jared."
Samantha -"Ok, Hi. Im Sam!"
From that moment on they became inseparable. As the years passed, it became even more evident that Sam was no 'girly-girl'. She choose guitar over ballet, she liked to arm wrestle for fun, her favorite sport was football, she could even belch the entire alphabet! Jared and Sam were the very best of friends, they hung out every day. They were like peanut butter & jelly, sun & moon, one not complete without the other. Then the summer before they started high school everything changed. Jared started dating Holly Alto, the most prettiest and popular girl in town.
Holly was Sam's complete opposite, a total girl and diva. She wore miniskirts and pink lip gloss almost everyday and smelled of daisies; the dream fantasy of every teen boy in Sunset Valley.
With Jared dating Holly, it didn't leave much time for hanging out with Sam, but they still remained close all the same.

Sam - "So do you want to ride bikes to the beach tonight?"
Jared - "Sorry i can't, i'm taking Holly to see the movies. Maybe tomorrow?"
Sam - "K, sure. hmm, it's getting pretty serious with Holly huh?"
Jared "Not really,.. we umm haven't even kissed yet.." he confessed.
Sam was surprised,"Wow really?" she didn't know anything about dating but she imagined it involved alot of sucking faces.

Jared - "Look, its not like im a loser or anything! I've had plenty of chances to kiss her, it's just... well i always chicken out since i, err..don't know how to.. What if I'm bad at it?"

Sam - "Oh..", she was silent for a moment then, "I have an idea, practice with me! I've kissed dozens of guys before!" she lied.

Jared laughed,"Too bad your dreams don't count, dork," he teased.
Sam - "Well i gotta go, football practice is starting soon, if im late again couch will have me benched next game. Think it over Jare!" After returning home from practice that night, Sam was about to start some homework when she heard the all too familiar tapping on her window pane.

9 years she and Jared had been best friends, and she has never known him to use the front door even once!
Jared - "Ok, lets do this before i get totally grossed out and change my mind, " he said as he closed his eyes and leaned in halfway... .....* 7 seconds *..

when it was over neither of them spoke for almost a minute.

It was Jared who broke the silence, "Oh no!!"
Sam "What?"
Jared - "Call 911, i need a cootie shot, quick!." They both laughed.
Later, while Jared left on his date with Holly, no doubt making out in the back of the movie theater; Sam lay in bed, reminiscing over her first kiss with her best friend..

that was the moment it began.. her secret childhood crush that would later blossom into love when she old enough to identify the magnitude of such a feeling.

She dreamed that night that one day she would look just as pretty as Holly, one day he would look at her differently, one day and he'd want to take her to the movies and want to make out with her for hours instead.
Many childhood friendships don't survive throughout the years, but theirs did. & although they never kept secrets from each other before, Sam never got the chance to confess her feelings to Jared. Jared and Holly were highschool sweethearts and continued to go steady even after college, so Sam learned to keep emotions bottled up inside, her heart secretly belonging to him. Every weekend, the two would meet up, they'd chat for hours or go out about the town, or just hang out and play video games. Sam loved to compete and Jared would secretly let her win sometimes just to see her get all excited, he got a real kick out of it. One thing he couldn't beat her at so easily, football. All those years of practice showed, Sam would throw a perfect spiral every time, not bad for a girl! Jared - "Remember when we use to hang out here?"

Sam - "Yep, every day after school, till the sun went down."

Jared - "Yea, we have come a long way, me and you. This is also the spot were i asked Holly to go steady with me,... but that's old news, we broke up a few days ago."

Sam was in disbelief, "You broke up with Holly Alto??"

Jared - "Actually, she broke up with me. She said she was tired of how much time i spent with you, she didn't want to compete anymore. I really just think it was all jealously to blame. Can't say i didn't see it coming, She always hated the fact i had a girl as a best friend even though i tried explaining to her hundreds of times you were not a threat to our relationship , that you were just like one of the boys.."

Jared's words stung Sam.. like a bee sting.
On her way home from the park that night, she stopped by the bookstore and purchased several beauty magazines and studied how to apply makeup, curl her eyelashes and style her hair. After hearing the harsh reality from Jared, something changed in Sam.. she realized she didn't want to be a dirty weed anymore, she wanted to be a pretty flower. Now that Jared and Holly we broken up, she finally had her chance to prove she could be! The following Sunday she was ready to make her debut.. Sam looked herself over in the mirror and smiled, she couldn't recognize her own reflection! It looked nothing like the face she had known all her life, for the first time in her life she felt pretty, she felt like a girl.

The doorbell rang, she knew it was Jared, he was coming over tonight for there ritual Sunday football night. She took a deep breath and headed for the door.
Jared stood in the doorway in pure amazement as he saw her.."Sam?"
She nodded, "Yea it's me.. how do i look?" she asked as she turned around in a circle, giving him the 360 view of her transformation.
Jared - "you look... wow. I'm blown away... Sam you look gorgeous. I'm curious though, why the change?" Sam - "Well, there's this guy... I like him alot, im kind of in love with him., but he doesn't know it, he's never appeared interested in me, i was hoping this look would get him to notice me differently."

"Oh, i see.." he said, his tone shrouded with disappointment, he cleared his throat, "So who this lucky guy?"
Sam- "Jare, no need to sound so upset.. isn't it obvious? It's you. It's always been you. I don't want to be one the boys anymore,.." Jared smiled and gently lifted her face, looking her in the eyes as he said, "Baby, you should of just said so,.. You look stunning tonight but you didn't need to change to make me see how beautiful you are, i've known it for years already. I lied when i said you were one of the boys because i thought that's what you wanted. Truth is, I've loved you since we were 13years old..," And he did, also keeping it bottled up inside till now.. Then just as innocently as the night when they shared their first kiss, Jared leaned in halfway, and his best friend met him there in a sweet long awaited kiss... That's when it began, the best kind of love no secrets involved. **The End** Hope you enjoyed this story! Thanks for reading! <3
