What was the most surprising thing you witnessed at your high school reunion? by Anonymous
Answer by Anonymous:
A few years ago, I went to my 10th reunion and saw that the most beautiful girl from way back when, was still single. She was always a little aloof and weirdly genuine. Extremely intelligent. Although quiet, if there was anything she had an issue with, she wouldn’t hesitate biting out her tongue at you. When I saw her, she had not changed much, if anything, she might’ve gotten even more beautiful over the years. She was what you would call “an untouchable”.
In undergrad she studied abroad and got an honours degree in something. Then she went to law school, and just finished her LLM. She was also about to start her LLD in some prestigious university soon. She was the type…you know, the total package, and many guys had a crush on her, and many girls wanted to be her. I admit – I crushed and wanted to be her, so it was a surprise when I learned that she never dated and stayed single all through uni…which was extremely odd, given how total of a package she was. You seriously couldn’t ask for anything more from a girl.
My friend thought he’d give it a shot and ask her out. She said yes, although very reluctantly.
They went out to a fancy restaurant and then walked on the beach. She admitted to my friend that this was her first date. He tried to kiss her. She let him give her a peck before she ran off, mid-kiss. He came home that night and complained to me how weird she was and that he wasn’t surprised she never scored a boyfriend.
2 months later, I learned that she died. She was suffering from an illness. Apparently she decided she didn’t want to commit herself to feelings long ago.
My friend, he was her first and last.
