Sadly, on our ways to grow up there comes the teen phase in our lives, it confuses us to the core, either makes us care way too much or not even a bit, and even irritates us for tiniest reasons.

Heights Of Embarrassment
Most people experience their first love during their teenage. Maybe that’s the reason why the majority of first relationship experiences have something or the other embarrassing about it. First love is unforgettable and when it’s over, the young heartbreaks get unbearable. After all, it’s the first time that most of the teens feel this kind of pain. All the troubles of the world are on one side and the love issues on the other side.
Now when Adrian looks back at his life, he realizes how everything has been constantly changing in his life but one thing remained the same over the past 47 years. What was it? It became a ritual for the man until his beloved wife finally had enough with this habit.
It started when Adrian was 17 years old was a senior year student at George S. Henry Secondary School, Toronto, Canada started liking Vicki Allen. From group study to school projects, they did everything together. Everyone felt they were in a relationship much before they actually shared their feelings with each other.
The young lovebirds stayed all the time together but their relationship was meant to last for a few months only. In the short span of time, Adrian got so connected with Vicki that when she broke up with him, he made a vow that he didn’t break for the rest of his life.
The First Heartbreak
The happiest days of the year were around the corner. It was December and Vicki had a gift with her, sadly, it was less of a Christmas gift and more of a parting gift. When she handed over the gift to Adrian he was eager to open it but she asked him to wait for it. And before he could open the gift, Vicki said that she needed to talk.
A Special Gift
Vicki broke up with him and asked him to unwrap the gift once she leaves. But the broken-hearted teen made up his mind to never see what was inside the gift. His first love left him and the pain was unbearable for him. Even though he kept the gift under the Christmas tree he didn’t open it. What he didn’t forget is to keep a condition to his vow.
