WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 25, 2019
Clinging closely to each other my girlfriend and I walk to her roommate’s house.
She then confesses to me, “I have never been so attracted to anyone as I am to you!”
“I think I feel the same way,” I reply.
“No, you don’t understand, after that Mexican molested me when I was fifteen I was afraid of men and had turned so many down.” She pauses then continues, “But I don’t feel that way about you. Instead, I want you so badly.”
We both blush followed by a sweet but awkward silence.
“I want you just as badly. After being with some terrible women, I set my standards very high. However, not only do you meet those standards that I impose but dare I say you exceed them! The only force that held me back from us doing it was fear that God would punish us by causing us to split up if we fornicated and I don’t want to lose you.”
“I am about to tell you something else and please try not to freak out when you hear it.”
“I think I love you! And just so you know I don’t want to lose you either!”
“I love you too, I was just afraid of scaring you off by telling you so soon, and trust me I will do everything in my power so that you won’t lose me!”
“I will also do everything in my power so that you won’t lose me either!” She says as she grabs me and pounds my face with her kisses.
I fire some sweet kisses at her in return to which she giggles as our teeth chatter.
“I finally have what I want!”
“So do I and I thank God for you!”
“I thank God for you as well.”
“I wish I could move in with you!”
“I would be exceedingly happy if you stayed with me, but we would need to be married.”
“Well, duh.” She playfully kisses me and then says, “Do you get my drift?”
“I think I do and I would be honored!”
“I know you are on a fixed income as am I, so you don’t have to buy me an expensive ring, anything with a pretty gem will do.”
“Is there any color you would like?”
“Anything red or blue?”
“Red like your pretty dress?”
“Yes. And I wish you were underneath it right now!”
“Oh, honey, I will be as soon as I marry you.”
“You better be!” She pauses when then asks, “What would you do while under my dress?”
“Kiss your sexy stomach, then play with your perky rear end and massage your thick thighs!”
“What if I pulled off your cute panty and went down on you?”
“Oooh, I know I found the right man!”
“Then after you squirt and spray all over my face, I would be so turned on that I would make love to you too until I fill you with my hot seed!”
“Usually hearing a man talk like that would make me want to flee from him, but hearing you say that makes me want to grab you, take you and make you mine forever! It’s like God chose the perfect husband for me!”
“I love you!”
“I love you too.”
We are now in front of her roommates’ house. I open the gate of the hurricane fence for her and she walks onto the property. I gently pat her rear end, to which she turns around grabs me, and plants a strong, loud kiss on my lips.
We then walk up the steps.
She opens the front door with her key, then steps in as I follow her.
Both of her roommates greet us, then one says, “Both of y’all, dig in. We cannot eat all of this by ourselves.”
“The other one says, “We have some roasted turkey and roasted goose, candied yams, some more green bean casserole, some spiced oatmeal cookies, a fruit tray, and some left over English Breakfast Tea.”
We both stare at all the food in amazement then begin to feast, once again.
We eat until our hearts are content, then we rest on my girlfriend’s futon, listening to one of the cable music channels.
It is now time to take our medicines.
We stand on the porch lost in time as we exchange those three little words and a volley of kisses and hugs.
I walk home as the snow is transitioning to rain.
Finally, I make it to the front of my house, unlock my hurricane fence then I cut across my yard, walk up my steps, then onto my porch. I unlock my front door.
Once inside, I call her.
“Hello?” She answers in a longing voice.
“Hey baby, I was calling to let you know I made it home safely and will give you the good night tidings if you wish.”
“Of course and I am very happy you’re safe.”
“Well, this is me sweetly but reverently hugging you and kissing you as I tuck you in. This is me praying for our sweet dreams and tranquil slumber. And this is me praying for God to watch over us until we see each other again.”
“When will that be?”
“Tomorrow if you want.”
“Of course. I was hoping you would say that.”
“Now, I have to take my medicine, but just know that I love you and I don’t want to lose you.”
“I love you too and I don’t want to lose you either.”
“Then we won’t lose each other at all.”
“I second that. Now go take your medicine.”
“Okay, good night.”
