Hockey Pucks, Comedy Clubs, and a Goodbye Note That Was Never Written – Part 3

If you are new to this blog, or missed Friday’s post.  You may want to read Part 1 of “Hockey Pucks, Comedy Clubs, and A Goodbye Note That Was Never Written” before continuing.

Days, Weeks, and Months past by.  Over time, Ken had found out that Juliet not only went to his school, but shared many mutual friends.  How could he have not noticed her sooner?

During that time Ken had also actually started talking to Juliet.  However, he had placed her so high up on a pedestal they could never get passed the “Hey Buddy – Have a good weekend?” conversation.  Ken stood by and watched as Juliet dated other guys, but not in the creepy stalker way.  Ken had his share of relationships, none of them ended well, and Juliet was always in the back of his mind.  Maybe he tried to hold his other girlfriends to the standard of Juliet.  I mean, they had never dated, but he had always imagined what it might be like.

Summer approached and Ken was able to ease Juliet out of his mind from that point going forward.  Absence can make the heart grow fonder, but it can also make the mind forgetful.  Ken went through his sophomore year with the occasional “hello’s” to Juliet, but never gave it another though.  She was still held on a pedestal, but no longer in the front of his mind.

Every once-in-a-while Ken would try to get a mutual friend to setup a date between Juliet and himself, but it never worked.  Juliet liked the confident guys that would ask her out for themselves.  Although, Ken was confident with most other girls, there was always something about Juliet that just turned him into a shy shell of himself.

Another year passed by and the story was repeated.

Now we find Ken in the summer between Junior and Senior year of high school.  Ken had worked full time all summer in an auto repair shop, but still found the time to party with his friends.  These parties were no longer as innocent as the Brandy’s.  There were many illegal activities taking place, and Ken had no qualms about participating.  He had a decent job for his age which produced a good amount of cash to spend on these parties that his friends threw.

With these parties Ken netted some one night stands, weekend regrets, and negative experiences.  A positive that came out of this summer was that Ken had found a new love.  On the last weekend of the summer Ken had met a girl, that by Monday, he was certain would be another one night stand.

The first day of his senior year of high school, Ken was headed toward his first class when he saw a beautiful, bright, smiling face.
