Imagine This-First Date,First Kiss

I'm painting up my face and nails with just a touch of teen. Cos' Mama's inspection never fails; of child and adult I'm in between. Daddy answers the door below; a nervous young man appears. Glaring with a fatherly glow dear old dad nearly brought him to tears! Quickly I brush my hair once more and down the stairs I fly. Bye we say and we're out the door; I swear I saw my mama cry! Off we go in his silver caddy and I ask him where we're going. I'm sweet sixteen and free of Daddy so I guess my excitement was showing. To a movie and casual dinner is what this boy had planned. I said "sounds like a winner" and thus the flames were fanned. He treated me to a burger and fries; afterwards we shared a kiss. All you could hear were panting sighs; my practice pillow never felt like this! A very special night of firsts- my first kiss, my first date. The night rolled on with happy bursts until it grew to be late. I never wanted all this to end- thought I was falling in love! Impressionable it was easy to send my heart up to heaven above And so that was my very first date- finally at home I did arrive. Daddy was waiting by the front gate to make sure his little girl was alive! for Frank H's contest "First Date"
