A Valentine's Day Date

(Austin, Texas, USA)
I was in 10th grade when I had my first date. There was this beautiful girl called Liza, studying in 9th grade.
Luckily for me, her classroom was just opposite to mine. I had a huge crush oh her ever since I met her, but unfortunately I never had the courage to express my feelings to her.
And then comes the valentine's day. I made up my mind to propose to her before I lose her to someone else.
During the break, I found her chatting with her girlfriends outside the classroom. I slowly walked towards her with a red rose hidden behind my back, which I had bought for her.
I was feeling very nervous and anxious as well. My legs started shivering and shaking. As I slowly walked towards her suddenly she looked towards me, we made an eye to eye contact.
I tried really hard to take my eyes off but I failed terribly. I stopped there. Seeing me standstill, she came to me and asked me, "I was kinda hoping the other day, if you would like to go out with me.
What do you think". I was dumbstruck, felt like I just won a 10 million lottery.
Soon after the class we set off for the beach. Spent a lot of time there. Later we had some ice cream, ate dinner from a nearby restaurant and I walked her back to her home.
We wished each other Good Night and when I was about to leave she caught my hand and gave me a kiss on my cheek.
Oh Man, that was the most romantic moment I ever experienced in my teenage life. She really made my day. That's how the first day of my teenage date ended.
