Senior Prom 2008 and Joseph
I went to my Senior Prom alone after my then date stood me up at the last minute claiming she had to work that night but spent her evening with someone else instead... My second oldest brother also accompanied me to my prom because his girlfriend was a classmate of mines but for whatever reason left relatively early with his date to a club in a different town but not before he gave me his cell phone and instructed me to call my second oldest sister for a ride home after...
I mostly sat down the majority of my time at prom after a free of charge annual Senior Prom photo shoot outside the Cherokee Ranch Country Club balcony watching my classmates enjoy themselves, drinking punch, Eating chocolate covered strawberries, Gossiping with a few friends etc
I was eventually approached by a very good looking man named Joseph he first asked me if he could sit down at my table I said sure and we began having a long conversation before the prom coming to an end... I was curious to know why he was here because he was from a different town and high school and he told me that one of his friends a classmate of mines invited him he asked me where was my date and I jockily replied that my Mama offered to be my date but couldn't find her church outfit in time
Even tho this was actually true
I told him that I got stood up and almost refused to come to my prom and stay home instead with Mama gossiping to which he said he was glad that I changed my mind otherwise he wouldn't have gotten to know someone as decent, polite, and handsome as me... I was flattered by his compliments and knew he was hitting on me but didn't care and instead complimented him in return
We are now in the final hour of prom and I haven't stepped foot on the dancefloor and wouldn't if it wasn't for Joseph persuading me
The DJ turned on Until The End Of Time by Justin Timberlake which has become my favorite song that btw and we danced to that song and two others from Monica(Angel Of Mine) and Aaliyah(One In A Million)
The prom has now ended and instead of calling my sister for a ride home as I was told to do I asked my home girl Jasmine to drop me and Joseph off at Holiday Inn
We watched a romantic film together and a favorite of mines(Never Been Kissed), Conversed a little more, Listened and danced to a few more slow jams and eventually had sex keep in mind I wasn't a virgin and was sexually active before I met him but having sex with him felt like my first time because of how special it was with the slow jam music in the background and him being a gentleman.
We slept up until 11:00 AM where I received angry phone calls and texts from my brother on where the hell I was
but I ignored them
I am still on good terms with Joseph and we still talk and meet up from time to time to this day after my senior prom and our hotel aftermath
