Robin Beck – First Time (1988)
This sweet, sweet boy told me that when he was with me it always felt like he was in a Coke advert!
He meant that we had fun, laughed a lot, life felt good.
He also asked me to agree to be in “his Heaven”… he believed that your own personal heaven contained all the people in your life that you loved most and that you could select who would be there… silly but so goddamned cute!
He was a perfectly lovely guy. A natural comedian, he had me in stitches most of the time. The rich kid in town, with a massive house in the most exclusive area, he went to boarding school, so we only had one summer together. But wow, it was a lovely summer!
Until I was a complete bitch and broke his little heart… dumped him in a very callous way. I’m ashamed to admit that, and my only excuse is that I was young, stupid and didn’t know any better. I am a much, much nicer person these days, I swear!
I often wonder where he is and what his life is like today.
I wish I’d stayed friends with him.
