"Free at Last"

...Besides, I had
decided that I would NOT be a virgin for no man who
could not offer me the same! So I made a mental note
that I would definitely 'get rid of this virginity' simply out
of spite.
Not long after our purity lecture, I'd approached my
so-called boyfriend, Julian Hargrove, with the 'I'm ready
speech'. Of course the snake that he was at the time, I
got no argument from him. He was supposed to be my
boyfriend but I could barely talk to him on the phone
and I definitely couldn't go out with him anywhere. The
one time he did try to come visit me, he was met at the
front door by my two brothers, Marvin and Malcolm,
who had inadvertently removed their shirts just prior to
opening the door in order to instill the greatest fear they
could into my suitor. He was bringing me a Valentine's
Day heart shaped locket. Unfortunately, because of their
bare-breasted appearance and my mom's decree that he
could only step into the fortress for a short moment, the
visit was rather brief, awkward, and very embarrassing.
After he was sent away I attempted to protest but was
immediately silenced by the Queen better known as "The
Iron Lady" that I had better be glad that she'd allowed
him on the premises and allowed me to keep the gift as
well.
Soon after I'd given him the green light on taking my
innocence, he met me in the hallway with his plan of
action to escape to the bordello of love.
"Meet me out front at the South door after fourth hour."
He'd said with his lips pressed in my ear.
"Where are we going?" I asked out of both curiosity
and caution. I might have been a virgin but I was far
from gullible and the tomboy in me had my guards up.
"We going to my cousin's house down the street." He
stated like he had it all together and the room was
reserved. However, the first thought in my head was who
else is gonna be there cause ain't nobody gang bangin'
me!
"Who's at the house?" I asked cautiously.
"Nobody's there. He gave me the key. Everything's
cool, don't worry about it. We'll be back by sixth hour. I
know you gotta catch the bus home." He reassured me
mostly because he didn't want me to back out of the
deal. What he didn't know was that this was mostly
about defiance and not so much because I had the hots
for him. In reality, he was just as much a victim as I
was.
"Ok", I said trying to seem at ease. At the end of
fourth hour I walked out the door as bold as ever and he
was already there waiting for me. He was standing
underneath this big tree looking all cool, which was easy
for him to do being that he was tall and muscular with
sleepy Garfield eyes and usually high from smoking the
sticky of the icky. I walked up to him and tried not to act
nervous. Oh but I WAS nervous cause I didn't know
what to expect and mostly because I just knew my
mother would pop out of nowhere like Bewitched and I
would be doomed for life!
We started walking down the street headed for his
cousin's house. I was hoping that it wasn't far cause if
I'd seen my mom I would have to do a nosedive under
the nearest bush. After a few minutes I followed him up
the walkway to a two story Victorian style home that
needed some obvious TLC.
I was quiet most of the way
so when we got there he asked, "You alright?"
I responded in my calmest voice, "Yea, I'm cool."
When we got in the house, no one was there as
promised; no one but him, me and God Almighty whom I
knew was watching me and shaking his head with
disappointment.
We went upstairs and I looked the room over. It was
neat but the furniture was old and it smelled more like
his grandmother's house than his cousin's. I sat on the
bed and just looked because I didn't know what else to
do. He sat down next to me, "So you never did it before,
huh?"
"Nope," I said, not really looking at him. I didn't feel
anything emotionally for him like I'd expected to the way
it seemed in the movies, so I had no real urge to kiss
him. What was I doing? Don't get me wrong. I liked him
a lot and he had done things to make my river flow with
desire but this was different. This was supposed to be
passionate and dramatic. I didn't hear any violins and
my heart was thumpin' merely from fear.
He leaned in to kiss me and I tried to kiss him back
as best I knew how but I didn't really like kissing that
much at the time, at least with him. Quite frankly, it
was downright nasty and I understood the minute after
I'd first kissed him in the hallway that day why my
government teacher referred to it as 'swappin' spit'.
Although the kissing didn't turn me on, I was, however,
turned on by his hands fondling my breast, which in
turn set off that faucet I'd always had between my
thighs. All I could think was (Let's get this over with).
After a short period of him rubbing and slobbin' me
down, I was wet and he began to undress me. I was
embarrassed because of course I had never been naked
in front of anyone before and my underwear was soaked
and I didn't want him to see that! Well, he seemed
pleased by the fact that they were wringing wet when a
smile slid across his face as he removed my underwear. I
was trying to figure out what the heck I was gonna put
on after we were finished cause I didn't want to reenter
those underwear.
Finally after he undressed me, he removed his
clothes rather quickly and leaned me back on the bed. I
watched his every move anticipating what he would do
next. He pulled out a Trojan, the kind I would see so
many people at school flashing like it was the winning
lottery ticket and they'd hit the jackpot. He tore open the
wrapping and rolled on the condom with ease. His penis
seemed huge. I mean, it wasn't every day that I saw one.
Then he lay on top of me and continued to kiss me.
That's when I noticed that the large hard object was on
my leg. Don't get me wrong; I saw it when he put on the
condom, but I guess it wasn't real to me until I actually
felt it on my leg. It was rock hard and thick and long. I
became extra nervous because I was trying to figure out
how that was going to fit inside me...
