7.14: Tell us about your first kiss.
That would've been in the Ozdust Ballroom, back at Shiz... with Boq.
I was fifteen years old, Shiz was a brand new world to me - I'd never seen anything outside of Munchkinland before, and this place was so vibrant and alive.
Before I came there, I'd certainly never seen a man in a skirt before.
But that's pulling away from the subject.
After Boq insisted we dance, much to his physical exertion, we retired to watch the others dancing - my sister amongst them, I noted, green and obvious amongst all the other students.
Boq had been getting fidgety. He kept smoothing down his hair, adjusting his jacket, casting glances out onto the dance floor before returning his gaze to me. After a while, he sighed and knelt down to be level with me.
He stumbled and stuttered as he spoke, but... he seemed so sincere, so loving. His hand on mine was gentle, and... I gave into the temptation he offered me.
It's only now that I realise he might've had an ulterior motive for kissing me then, and like that, but... I'll ever remember that moment as one of the few times when he ever said he loved me and proved it.
