It was the last night of the summer, tomorrow we leave for different colleges in different states. It would also be the last night of our romance, we both knew it, but we were leaving that unsaid, and now it was time to say goodnight. I pulled up to the curb in front of her house, as always per her father's strict rule, I had her home by midnight. I turned to kiss her goodnight, but instead of leaning in all puckered up, she pulled a Hershey's kiss from her purse. I watched as she slowly unwrapped it, trying hard not to tear the silvery wrapper. She then laid the flattened wrapper on the dashboard. She put the kiss between her lips and after letting it slowly melt in her mouth, she gave me a sweet chocolaty goodbye kiss. Without a word she got out of the car and ran inside before I could react. As I start the car, I notice that during our final kiss, she left my class ring on my car's console. I place the ring on my finger and notice how heavy it feels. The evening breeze scoots the candy wrapper over to me. I pick it up and look at it through the tears in my eyes.
No, I won't throw this wrapper away. Instead of wrapping itself around a piece of candy, it wraps a sweet memory.
