A simple candy wrapper. Most people would have thrown it out, I would too except this one held a memory for me that I didn't want to forget. She was my first love, the first to hold my heart in her hands and when I was with her, the world just floated away.
It was our last night before we left for college and it would be the last night of our romance, we both knew it, but we were leaving that unsaid, and now it was time to say goodnight. I pulled up to the curb in front of her house, as I turned to kiss her goodnight she pulled a Hershey's kiss from her purse. I watched as she slowly unwrapped it, trying hard not to tear the silvery wrapper and then she laid it out flat on the dashboard. She then put the kiss between her lips and after letting it slowly melt in her mouth, she gave me a sweet chocolaty goodbye kiss. Without a word she got out of the car and ran inside, leaving my class ring on my car's console.
No, I won't throw this wrapper away, instead of wrapping itself around a piece of candy, it wraps a sweet memory.
