I Fell Hard for my Grade School Crush

It was fourth grade, the grade I had a boyfriend and I thought we were going to date until middle school. I never held his hand or hugged him; we just called ourselves "a couple." It wasn't a real relationship.

In my school, there was this club called the After School Club, and kids could sign up for extra homework help and activities. I joined in third grade and loved it, so I was back for my second year of fun. I was extra excited because my boyfriend was sitting in the same table as me and my best friend. They both sat across from me. It was so much fun we would always have the weirdest conversations, and they were both so funny.

One day when we were all goofing off after finishing our homework, we were all just laughing about random stuff. I was rocking back in my chair, but I thought I'd be fine because my hands were holding on to the table. That was a mistake. I rocked back way too far, lost my balance and fell backward. My head hit the floor hard. The table fell next, but my hands were there to catch it before it hit my stomach.

The After School Club teachers hurried over to me and lifted up the table, picking up all the papers that went flying. They stood my chair up. I could feel my face burning with embarassment. I thought to myself, Maybe I can just laugh it off. I laughed and laughed, and my best friend attempted to laugh it off with me. I stayed quiet the rest of homework time until snack. That was definitely one moment I want to forget.
