Maria and I were walking home. She usually has track practice after school and I have my robotics club, so we’re usually not available after school, but whenever we have the chance to walk home together, we do. Something about her is so hard to avoid. She’s nice, understandable, and has the cutest laugh. She’s my dad’s friends’ daughter, so I usually see her at parties. Whenever I am with her, I can’t imagine anything better. She isn’t just a regular girl. Her jokes aren’t weird or inappropriate, and everything she says I can relate to. If I had to choose just one person to live with for the rest of my life, I would definatly choose Maria.
She lives 3 blocks away from me. My house is comes sooner when we walk home, so when we got there, I said a quiet “bye,” trying to seem casual while hiding my slight sadness. She walked off down the road, and as I was walking in my driveway, I heard my dad and his brother talking on the porch. Something about investing. I walked up to them, and my uncle says, “So who’s the chic? A new booty call?” And chuckled. I smiled like I appreciated his joke but really I didn’t. “You know there’s no sin in it for you. God forgives men, it’s the women that must be behaved,” he added as I was just entering. The entire night after that I couldn’t stop thinking about his statement. Why are women just perceived as mothers? Why does he think I must have sexual relations with her? I like her because she likes me, she is easy to talk too, and has the best sense of humor. She doesn’t make fun of me that I’m in robotics club like other girls do. I don’t like her because she has pretty brown hair and little dimples. Her beauty might be a factor, but that’s not why. I kept thinking about this even more. Why does God forgive men, not women? It’s too ridiculous. The world will never progress if that’s how people think. Just because people are different genders, they are still all human. I know that I’m a teenage boy, and I’m supposed to fantasize about stuff like that, but I would never forgive myself if I caused her to sin. I love her too much, too much to hurt, to betray, or even to lie to.
