Ready to Rumble

I am ready to rumble….

Today, I turn 16 and this is the day I plan to get my very first kiss.

16 is already looking a lot promising than 15. For one, I’ve got my very own Clyde.

I met Tony last week in church. His family just moved into the neighborhood and thankfully, his dad chose my church for the whole family to attend.

We saw each other for the first time during our youth Sunday school hour and immediately our eyes met, I knew he was the man for me.

My virgin heart did a little flip-flop and i had this delicious tingling all over my body. That was all it took. That was the beginning of our roller-coaster relationship.

Tony is such a perfect gentleman. We don’t go to the same school, so it’s not been easy to find time to be together. We try to meet in Onome, my best friend’s house after school. Onome has a room to herself and her parents are usually not home, so that plan works some of the time.

My biggest challenge with Tony is getting him to kiss me. Even utilizing every feminine wiles I possess, he refused to. After much coaxing, he promised to kiss me on my sixteenth birthday, and here we are.

Tony is older than me, he’s 18 already and a part of me still feels he sees me as a little girl. Well, all that will be remedied today. I’ve been practicing with my old barbie doll and I think I’ve got the hang of this kissing business.

Bonnie is so ready to rumble. All I need now is my Clyde to figure that out.

I’m tired of Tony being my imaginary boyfriend. I’m tired of thinking up fantasies in my head.

Tony, don’t you see me looking at you?

I’m 16 now, and ready to rumble.
