It happened back in the 80’s my family and I were going to meet another family in Maui.
Every time we got together with our family friends even far apart we would rekindle our
friendship. It all began on New Years Eve we were going to a night club called the
Banana Moon. There my friend and I danced and had fun. All of a sudden a song from
the Bangles played, and these guys were dancing with us. They told me I looked like
the lead singer. We danced the night away. When it was time to leave the man I had a
crush on and I were still wanting to talk, so we walked along the beach. Talking away.
Then for some strange reason we ended up back by this hot tub.
I had this emerald green dress on and walked in the hot tub, he followed we sat in the hot
tub totally clothed for along time talking away. Our friends caught up with us and when
they saw us we were both soaking wet, dripping. My emerald green dress clung to my
body. We said good night and my girlfriend and I took off back in our rental, to the hotel.
When we got back we had a hotel room of kids and my mom and Dad got up and gave us
their bed. Mom and Dad went to the rental and sat in the car and slept there. Not sure if
my Dad’s seat got wet as he never said a word to me.
Our visit in Maui was coming to an end, and I was not ready to leave.
So my family left, and I stayed with my friends, I spent many days with the man I met at
the Banana Moon. We walked, and walked along the beaches holding hands he
continued to test me asking me questions about myself, and I would not let him in.
Many times we would take his yellow thing and drive to the paradise fruit stand it was a
an organic market that was made of bamboo leaves and there were no doors.
He never invited me over to his place which was a mystery in itself I never asked.
When it was time for me to go I was so sad to go as I did not no if I would ever see him
Again. I had really gotten to like him. We exchanged numbers, and he called a few
times, yet then he’s calls stopped. After that I went into a deep depression.
I missed our time we spent together. I am not sure how long I was in this deep dark
space. Yet I was still in it when he called out of the blue one day. I was not ready for the
deepest love of my life.
To this day I still wonder where this man is? What he is doing with his life?
When I was twenty I was far from ready to be in a serious relationship, as I really
did not no what love was? I believe we have to truly have an inner love for self before we
can truly have a deeper greater love for another.
