I’m going a difficult time at the moment – my mother says it happens to all teenagers. Anyway, there’s this girl who moved into my block of flats year – she’s a couple of years older than me but the truth is I’ve wanted to kiss Samantha ever I met her and last week I finally up my mind that I was to do it. On Friday I was coming up the stairs I saw her walking down carrying two huge boxes.

I help you with those?’ I asked. - ‘Thanks – they’re really heavy, I think I’m to collapse.’I carried them to the entrance, and put the boxes down for a moment she opened the front door. This was my opportunity – I had been wanting to do it for months and now I was really going kiss her.

‘I just can’t put into how I feel about you,’ I stammered. ‘So I thought I’d show you instead.’ I leant over and was about to kiss her when my neighbor came through the door. As as she had gone, Samantha turned to me, grabbed the boxes and said, ‘Let me give you a of advice– stick to girls your own age!’

So that’s it for me – I think I’ve gone girls completely for the moment.
