Anne Frank

Anne Frank falls in love with Peter van Pels in the Secret Annex. She shares her first kiss with him, and wonders if her parents would approve. . .

"Do you think Father and Mother would approve of a girl of my age sitting on a divan and kissing a seventeen-and-a-half-year-old boy? I doubt they would, but I have to trust my own judgement in this matter. It’s so peaceful and safe, lying in his arms and dreaming, it’s so thrilling to feel his cheek against mine, it’s so wonderful to know there’s someone waiting for me."

The Diary of Anne Frank, April 17, 1944.
