     We Love Memoirs--a FaceBook page--challenged its members on Valentine's Day to write a story about a First Crush from beginning to end. The story must contain six sentences. 

     As winner I was allowed to choose from an assortment of memoirs written by WLM members!

     I received "Travels with Denise" by Sharon Hayhurst.


Chalk Houses

 I was ten years old when we moved.

In this new neighborhood, children were allowed to play on the street where they drew chalk houses. Eva was older and wore a sleeveless blouse and butterfly earrings; she smiled from ear to ear. As we walked through her chalk house she pointed out the rooms, "Here's the kitchen, and this is the bathroom."  I fell in love with her by the time we got to the bedroom. But then it started to rain.
