I never wanted to hurt him. But I told him that I loved him, and he disrespected that so, I had to set the tone. He started it. He wanted me and now he has me.
It all started Tuesday. I was working my shift at The Westbrook Movie Theater when Antonio came in. I knew him from school, we had a couple classes together. He was so fine. He wasn’t really my type, but I figured I’d make an exception for him. He was Puerto Rican and Black with curly hair and this smile that stopped everything. He could dress too. The only problem was he was with some girl from the school. She wasn’t competition though. You see, I always get what I want, and I wanted Antonio. They came to see a movie as a date. It was cute. Antonio came over to buy popcorn and snacks.
Antonio looked me up and down, licked his lips, and chuckled. Now, I knew this look. I’m a pretty girl. Actually, pretty is probably being a little humble but whatever. The look was one of interest, I guess you can say I had him in the bag.
Hey, Antonio, right?
Oh, hey! Jasmine, right?
Looks like someone’s on a date.
Well, I guess. She’s hella lame, honestly. I’m ready to go home.
I mean, if you would’ve asked me instead you wouldn’t be in this predicament.
ANTONIO looks at JASMINE hungrily, licking his lips with a chuckle. Nothing happens that night, but it is only a few weeks before they begin dating. NARRATOR: After that night the two are together constantly. One night in particular JASMINE and ANTONIO sit in his car outside of her empty house.
Baby, come inside with me please?
Babe, it’s getting la-
Before he can finish, Jasmine starts kissing him soft and sweetly, getting more aggressive as she feels him getting more into it. The two make their way inside to her room. As she begins to undress, he looks at her body with hunger.
Wait, do you have a condom?
Jasmine is already prepared. She reaches over to her nightstand and pulls out a condom for him. When it is all over, they lay in her bed in each other’s arms.
