When does childhood end and adolescence begin?
No doubt, when you were very young, there was a moment when the feelings you had for another person went beyond friendship. you wanted something more, but couldn't put those feelings into words.
Was there a special person that awakened those feelings in you?
We're not talking about sexual feelings, per se, but the twilight moment in between - when innocence gives way to a stronger feeling - akin to passion.
Up to that point, you'd had small crushes. But, suddenly, you were hit with something stronger. Was it a longing? You had to be near that person night and day. Was it a smell, like a pheromone, that kept you enthralled, even if you didn't know why?
Write a story that is the very preface to your sexual awakening - before sex was fully understood, or even contemplated. At the very moment when you realised you wanted something more intimate, but were too immature to understand what that meant.
In other words, a story of innocent love. Two people, feeling a connection, but not knowing what to do about it.
