Words Can Hurt

People don't believe that words can bother you. You know the old saying "Sticks and Stones May brake my bone but words don't hurt" well that's a lie words do hurt especially when it's repeated more than once and that can make you feel horrible and guarded. I am one to guard myself once the same womb is reopened. Hunter words ringed in my ear all night "Why are you so guarded".

But if I could face to it I would go to me as a child right ..the age 11 I changed my mom was freshly married and things were going good she was happy but a few months down the line it changed the good relationship she once had was toxic and while he was with her he couldn't stand me he said I was jerk and an asshole but I didn't care. Her toxic relationship lasted 5 years and grew worse and worse I hated him for what he did to my mom and how he treated me two years in she gave birth to triplets Macy Matthew and Luke we didn't know about Luke until the birth he came out kicking. Anyways we moved out to a apartment for the safety of the kids and he filed for divorce since she wanted out so bad. It changed her the free spirit I knew was gone and darkness was born.

She blamed me for the divorce.

Nia: Had you not been such a ass to him maybe he would wanted to stay

Those words pieced like a knife I am now 16 and all I wanted all I need was my mommy be she left. But I still was a good daughter and loved her because I knew she was hurting so I said to myself with time she will get better. So I moved on got my first job and had my first boyfriend Deleon he was hot and smooth and I was attracted to him. But it wasn't long before I realized he was toxic he didn't know how to keep his dick in his pants and sadly he was my first in everything I wasted two years trying to get him love me and understand that I was all his but he didn't care and his "I'm sorry" ran out even though he made it hard to move on I did but something was still missing .. Love. Deleon even told if I would change my ways he would too because I was an asshole. I knew my problem came from my mom she had my heart until she switched on me so now every time someone flips on me once I mentally remove myself from feeling anything for them cause if my mom could do it so could anyone.

Belle' comes home face full of tears

Belle': I'm home

She doesn't hear anyone so she goes to turn on a light when she is grabbed with a knife to her neck

Man: Belle' Belle' Belle'

Belle' is struck with fear

Belle': Hi I am going to pay you I promise

Man: Your late and you know what happens when your late

Belle': I know I know but look I need just a little more time

Man: Time is of the essence

Belle': If you give me more time to come up with a better plan you will thank me and be so satisfied

Man: But what about I need payment now

Belle' turns and looks at the tall light skin Jamaican guy wit a scare up his eye and long blonde dreadlocks and gives him a sinister smile then she gets on her knees up zips his pants and let him have it!!

Man: Consider more time gra gra gra granted.. oh my God slow down I wanna enjoy every minute please

He says grabbing her head slowing her down.

The next morning I hear someone calling my name

Hunter: Lily oh Lily my love it's time to wake up

Lily: No I'm not ready please 5 more minutes

With the sun shining in my face I feel the covers pull-up from my feet then I feel warm big hands rub up to my hips pulling me down

Hunter: My love if you don't wake up I will have to wake you up

I pulled the cover over my face

Hunter: Okay you asked for it

Then all of a sudden I feel the heat of a wet tongue inside me and I began to moan and arch my back then he goes deeper swirling his tongue around and around followed by sucking then after a few minutes he stops wiping the corner of his mouth

Hunter: Are you up now

I gasped and popped up out my what seems to be a dream. I can't believe it did I just have a wet dream about Hunter I mean damn I just met the guy I must admit it did feel good but no no no I promised myself not to fall for the bull shit again!!!

Hunter: Um Lily

I gasped again. SHIT I am still on the phone with this man

Hunter: Lily where you go still there

Lily: Hi I am still here

Hunter: You got up so quick sounded like you had a nightmare

Lily: Did it?

Hunter: Yeah

Lily: Sorry

Hunter: You fine. Are you okay

Lily: Yes I am good

He looks down

Hunter: It's Morning

Lily: It is

Hunter: Looks like we spent our first night together

I blushed

Lily: We did I enjoyed it

Hunter: Me too

Lily: Well Good Morning

Hunter smiles and the sunlight hits his face just right where the light beams on his beautiful eyes causing them the shine more

Lily: Your so beautiful

Shit I just said that out loud I looked down

Hunter: Thank you Lily your so kind

I looked up at him in my phone

Hunter: Can we do this again sometime

Lily: I would like that

Hunter: Yeah me too. Well let me get this day started

Lily: Okay. Enjoy your day

Hunter: You too

He says as he smiles and wink at me before he hangs up

He is truly different from what I am use too but I can't I need to set some damn boundaries when it comes to him.
