Sophie,

Iím in love! I am in love! Ok, Iíll tell you what happened. I was at the gig. It was going really well. The girls were screaming. I was standing in the crowd. We were staring at each other. At the end of their 2nd set, Mr Tyler went up to the guys and said something. They shook hands, and Peter jumped off the stage, coming straight for me. He hugged me and spun me round.

"What was that for?" I asked, bewildered

"We got 10 more weeks here!"

"Thatís great! Iím so proud of you!"

"Thanks, but it wasnít just me."

"Yeah, but Iím proud of you."

After I said that, he loosened his grip on me. For a second I was worried I hurt his feelings. But instead of walking away he leant down and kissed me. Passionately. Deeply. Truly.

Just then the Juke Box came on. It was Elvis - Love Me Tender. We were on the edge of the dance floor, so Peter pulled me into the middle. We danced. We kissed. It was heaven Soph. I fell asleep on the way home, on Peter. I have a habit of doing that. Peter carried me to bed.

Today we sat on the beach. There werenít many people there because it was overcast. Everything was perfect. We just sat there in each others arms.

Iím in love.

Eb.
