details of my first kiss:

mood: mixed feelings
lemme tell ya how it all went down, if you read the previous story( My First Love Letter), you’ll get the better of this story, so please if you haven’t read the previous story before this one, i strongly suggest you do so before you read this piece, cos it’s connected.
so after my love letter, we were in love, we were practically “boyfriend and girlfriend”, that kinda thing, we use to talk after school, texting at night, free night calls, we just had a constant communication everyday, i can’t remember a day we didn’t talk.
the more you talk to someone for a long time, be it calls or texting, the closer you guys become and the stronger the feelings between you guys gets stronger, especially when you guys have a lot in common. due to this “theory” of mine, i started thinking, so now we “dating” so what next?
i started thinking about kissing her, asking questions like, how do i kiss her? for how long should i kiss her? where do i kiss her? how do i tell her i wanna kiss her? charle the questions be plenty lol
at first i wanted to tell her my intentions, like, telling her i wanted to kiss her, but the problem was that, she might not like the idea, and i wasn’t sure how she would take it. confusion has come lol, but the bottom line was, i wanted to kiss her, and i had to do it one way or the other, call that a “premeditated kiss” hahaha
i’ve been thinking about kissing her for weeks now, so i had to find a way for us to meet, so i started asking questions, questions like, what time you close from school? what time do you reach home? are you alone at home after school? what time do you finish your house chores? what time are free? are you allowed to go out when you home? what time does your aunty arrive home after work? i had to ask questions in other to avoid any bad consequences should things go wrong, i wasn’t ready for trouble charle!
so i got answers to some of these questions, she told me she was mostly free after school, nobody is usually home at that time, her little brother is always out to play with his friends, her aunty wont be at home till dark, and she didn’t have many chores to do at that time of the day. i told her ill be coming to see her after school, she agreed.
i went home straight after school, i didn’t wait a second, i wanted to be in and out as quickly as possible, time was of the essence, every second was precious, cos if we get caught by any grown up, charle we dead! so i got home early, changed into a more casual clothes, and started walking to her house.
she was at home as she said, she also got home minutes before i arrived, so i asked how school went, how her day was, we started talking, talking and talking, but honestly my thoughts were on how i could kiss her, she no ideawhy i was visiting her, maybe she thought it was a normal casual visit. but for my mind inside, i get plans hahaha
i still remember what she was wearing that day, she had beautifully tied her pony tail, she had a silk top on, and a black skirt, gosh she was beautiful! not forgetting that black flip flops she had on.
so we’ve been talking for like an hour now, and the sun was slowly setting down, i knew i had to act fast, but i didn’t know what to do, i was confused at that time.
2 hours was almost up, and still no kiss, we’ve been talking all these while, i didn’t have to balls to do what i came there to do, and it was getting late, i knew people will start coming home soon. i didn’t know what to do, so i told her i was going home, so make she go throw me small for the junction top…
when we got up from our chairs, our eyes met! instantly i felt the edge to kiss her, we were both staring at each other, the feeling was right, the moment was right, i had to go for it, i could see that was my last chance. so i leaned forward towards her, about to kiss…nooorrrrrrrrrrr *screeecchhh* their gate opened! sh*t!!! a gentle walked into the house, charle the guy spoil the chance…i make basaaaa, cos i finally got the balls to do it and this gentle walks in to mess it up! not cool charle…not cool!
but i didn’t blame the man who walked in tho, i mean i had my chance for like 2 hours now, and i blew it…so what could i have done with a few seconds that i got? so i told her i had to leave, i had to go home, she noticed i had dull face, she asked me about it, but i didn’t tell her, she insisted, but i was mute, told her nothing was wrong, i left there with a sad face.
going home took forever! i wasn’t myself, i was sad and dull, i wasn’t a happy boy. kept thinking about what just happened. i knew i blew my chances, i was with her for almost 2 hours and i couldn’t do anything, the gentleman who barged in wasn’t the blame, i blamed myself, i was weak, and it cost me.
i got home eventually, called her to tell her i had reached home. on the phone she told me to tell her why i was looking sad when i left her house, she kept insisting but i said nothing. a while later i sent her text message, it reads, “i wanted to kiss you, but i didn’t know how to do it, that’s why, i was sad”….an hour later she replied saying, “i also wanted to kiss you”
woooow! i was excited! she felt the same, we were both on the same page. i called her to tell her, ill be coming to her house this evening, i wanted my kiss before the next day lol…she agreed. at 8pm, she texted me saying she was done with her house chores so i could come over, i changed and wore something nice, my next problem was how to get outta the house, i had to find a convincing excuse, so i told my mom i was going to buy a ruler for my home work, i’ll be back soon! she believed me, seconds later i was outta the house, heading straight to my bae’s house.
i got there, sent her a text that i was just in front of her gate…she replied saying she’ll be with me soon, but like 30mins she no come, i was getting impatient charle, it was getting late, and if i slack, my dad go lock the doors, and i’ll have lots of explaining to do, and i didn’t want that, so i sent her a text, saying she should hurry up!
i could hear people talking in her house, but i didn’t want to go inside, i didn’t want her aunty to see me, so she finally came out, 5 seconds later her aunty shouted, asking who was she talking to outside, busted! then she said it was me, so i had to go inside to greet her, the feeling was awkward.
i told her aunty i went somewhere and decided to pass by her house and greet her, she smiled at me and told me to send her regards to my mother, i smiled back, and asked to take my leave. then her aunty told her to go escort me to the junction, loool i was just smiling in my head.
so we got out, holding hands, and talking about what we texted about during the day. we were walking straight, but suddenly i took a right turn, then she asked me where i was taking her, i told her to remain quiet and follow me. moments later, we were standing on a school park.
people were there, you could see people praying and shouting tongues, others were walking by, the place was dark so you couldn’t see anyone’s face, and no one could see yours, unless they were close enough. so it was a perfect spot to do what i had to do.
we were standing there, my hands on her waist, her arms around my neck, just standing there and looking into each others’ eyes, the feeling was great, the moment was perfect! like joke like joke…i kissed her, and she kissed me back, i felt nothing, only saliva in my mouth, then we kissed again…it felt better than the first.
we were just standing there and kissing and enjoying the moment, it was my first kiss, so i had to enjoy it, it was very symbolic, and i knew it was something i wont be able to forget till i die.
as we stood there kissing, she got carried away…something happened, something happened that caught me off guard!
