It was him − seductive, charming, gorgeous him. How could anybody refuse? He took advantage of my immaturity, of my first love.
I remember it all. I had been scared. Scared because it was my first romance, my first time of experiencing ecstasy.
There's something in me that rebels, says I was old enough to understand but I wasn't. He knew I wasn't but still he continued to pursue me as if wanting a taste of something he knew he wasn't allowed.
I remember that dark curious part of me that wanted to know more. I wanted to learn more about that erotic feeling in me that bloomed by his touch.
Yes, I could have stopped him, told someone, pushed him away but I didn't, because I wanted to know what a man felt like. What he felt like...
