The one about the memory

Tuesday, September 17: A memory you would love to relive.

Every single memory I have of him and with him I wish I could relive. Even the bad ones because it would mean I could just be with him again.
The first memory I thought of when I read this prompt was a random summer night. We were 19 or 20. It was the middle of the night and Brian came over to my house and we just sat on my deck and talked. I don't remember what we talked about. I just remember sitting there being so content and it being such a peaceful night. We talked and then would have to be quiet every time a train went by because I lived close to the tracks.
The time we drove to Davenport and danced the whole way there to the Jane Fonda song that we were obsessed with at the time.
All the times we sat around bonfires smoking cigarettes and drinking cheap beer.
Being at his house playing with his dog, Tanner.
The night after the Homecoming dance when we laid outside his house on the sidewalk and had our first kiss.
Playing Guitar Hero in Austin's tiny apartment.
All the American Government classes together where we would write notes back and forth and flirt with each other.
Organizing random softball games with our friends.
Being the girl that got to wear his jersey to the state basketball game senior year.
His laugh...oh his laugh. It was the best.
I miss you every day.
