first, proper boyfriend that made her feel so grown up. They were from the same village but with social media they started chatting online before they did in person. They went on their first holiday abroad together and spent all their time with each other, until Imogen decided she wanted to move away to university. They drifted apart and made a mutual decision to split as the distance put a strain on their relationship.
She has not heard from him since and he has disappeared from social media. She had a pair of his trainers in her car for two years since they split hidden under the passenger seat. She thought that one day he would come back and put them on like nothing had happened. Recently she decided to sell her car and found the shoes again.
