She also reflects on her first-ever boyfriend, "Martin," an aspiring Christian rock musician with a flair for dramatics, whom she dated in grade 12. Mica explains why she refused to kiss Martin throughout their awkward courtship and tells the story of when he serenaded her atop a cliff, which she proceeded to fall from.
