I’m so excited for #SpringFlingKidlit this year! If you have an entry, let me know in the comments. I’d love to cheer you on.

My gif is by the amazing and generous Allison Strick. (Twitter: @byallisonstrick) I can’t thank her enough for making this amazing gif to go with my story.

When a young girl gets invited to a Spring party, the invitation says “Magic and wonder await.”
At the party, she bumps into “her.” A girl that fills her with heart pounding, stomach swirling happiness.
This is a gentle #ownvoices LGBT+ story and I really hope you enjoy it.

Title: With Her
Spring brings
Warmth and sunshine.
But I am bored.
And lonely.

Invitation arrives.
“Magic and wonder await.”
Should I go?
Deep breath.
I want to go.
I will go.

Look for clothes.
Try new hairstyles.
Accessorize.

Glance in mirror.

See
Round.
Soft.
Beautiful.
Me.

I’m ready.
My bike awaits.
Ride under the Spring sun.

Walk inside.
Hands shaking.
Heart racing.

Breathe in confidence.

Look up.
I see her.
She takes my hand.
Whirl and twirl.
Laugh and smile.
Heart beating.
Stomach swirling.
Happiness.

Talk and talk.
Share and confide.
Dance.
Dance some more.

Party’s over.
Have to go.
Rushing.
Bracelet falling.

On my bike
Smiling brightly.
Spirits high.

Next day.
A knock on the door.
Her.
“Here’s your bracelet.”
Whispered thanks.

Together with her.

Happiness.
