I should have said no when I said yes. I could have waited a little longer. I would have had a better time. Can I do it all over again? What if I would have said "I do not know?" If I only knew now what I knew today. I should not have forgotten to pray. Now I have to re-think this whole episode. Do I go home? Or do I tell her to put back on her clothes? I am lying here contemplating. Waiting ... Wanting to see if she will make the right decision for me. My mind tells me to put on this condom. My body says "it does not feel real." She gets into bed. My heart skips a beat. Kisses my chest. Bites my tongue. I close my eyes. Right before she rubs my thumb. She says "Devin?" I say "yes, hun." She says "put on a condom." Man I feel dumb. A little numb. Now it's getting hectic. Yet, protected. Super erect. Man, this is safer sex.
