I Am Not Too Young

By Tayler, age 15, California

I felt secluded. I felt like people were leaving me out of the loop. The feeling where everyone else knows what's going on but you. That very feeling was starting to ruin my trip to Six Flags because I am one of the most paranoid people in the world. I hated when all of my friends would whisper and I would go, "What?" and they would simply ignore me. It was like I was not there.

My boyfriend and I have been together for three years, and this was an annual trip. We had to go to Six Flags because that was where our fire began for one another. We were walking towards my favorite ride, Roaring Rapids. The area had a giant fake lake that was crystal clear and a million trees all around. Kevin slowed down a lot. He wasn't walking like he was earlier that day. That worried me. I thought he was feeling symptoms of tachycardia that had gone into remission. He stopped and sat down, and my instincts told me to sit next to him.

I sat down beside him, and he was just looking into my eyes with the biggest smile on his face. He said, "I love you. You know that, right?"

"You know I love you too, right?" was my answer. He got down on one knee in front of probably a hundred different people walking by.

"Will you be mine forever?" He pulled out a silver ring with a 2 carat diamond set in it.

"Yes! As long as you get to be mine forever!" I was beaming. I began to cry. I think he had planned this for months, and all of my friends knew about it.

I am fifteen and engaged. Yeah, I am completely aware that I am still very young, but I know that God's grace is going to help us get through the rest of high school. I love him. He loves me. The world is now a magnificent place, and we are going to make it. People are going to criticize us, but this is the one thing I am sure of. I am going to marry that boy when I turn 18, and God is going to help us.
