BAD MOON RISING

ADDICTED TO LOVE   (part four)

John Paul and I went out for about a month. Then his ex-girlfriend wanted him back. And back he went. My first dumping! Oh my broken heart! So I did what all red blooded 16 year old girls do, I began to date his best friend, "Moon."

Moon was you quintessential bad boy! Incorrigible, kind of mean, totally out of control, irreverent, and wealthy. He had yet to turn 16. Which one would think was a problem, but not with Moon. Here was the deal............I would spend the night with one of my gal pals. We would wait until the appointed hour, sneak out of the house...........

This deserves a little attention. Sneaking out of the house is not as easy as tiptoeing to the back door and quietly leaving. Oh no! This involved ladders to second story windows. This included, but was not limited to, crawling belly down on roof tops, climbing down trees, camping out in the "guest quarters" with pillow dummies in the sleeping bags, lies, lies and more lies. Typical 16 year old stuff.

Moon would be waiting for us, hidden by the cloak of night, in a car that has been acquired by silently rolling it down his families driveway and then firing it up as it hit the street!

Oh the happiness of the middle of the night joy rides! Drinking PBR beer and Little King Cream Ale. Criss crossing all the back roads of our county. Tossing empty beer bottles at road signs all night long. Then as quietly as possible, creeping back into the house.

Moon was sent away to Reform school..........I mean Prep school several weeks later!

I kept J.P. in the picture, always in the corner of my eye. I saved my life guard money for weeks and bought a cherry red polyester two piece outfit. A mini skirt (as short as my Mom would let me) with a scooped neckline top adorned with tiny feminine buttons down the front. Add a pair of classic white Aigner sandals, that showed off my marvelous lifeguard tan, I headed out to our last swimming meet intent to turn heads.

With one particular head in mind.

I love your stories!  My sister perfected the sneaking out of the house.  She had to climb onto the roof of the garage, onto the top of the fence, to the tree where she climbed down...at 12!!!  I was never so compelled.  She always had issues with any kind of authority...So, did his head turn?  JAE

This doesn't look like it's heading in the right direction. Part 5-The Trailer Park, then Part 6- The Triplets.

I'm so laughing hard. I always went out with my boyfriends friends afterwards...I did it on purpose. I was terrible.

We lived in a bilevel and my bedroom was on the lower part. We could easily sneak out the sliding glass door and did so on many an occassion. My best friend was also on the lower level and we climbed out her bedroom window. Oh they joys of sneaking around in the middle of the night! Some fun times. I could fill a journal with my teen adventures! I am so enjoying yours, Nelle

I'm hooked!!! I can't wait to hear about John Pauls reaction! {I bet you looked awesome! : )}
The sneaking out part..., LOL! I went through the same stuff-- belly crawling, ladders, etc. It was all worth it! The best part was I never got caught. ; )

I did the date-the-best-friend thing a couple of times! LOL I didn't realize it was a syndrome until you just mentioned it...
These are great stories, I'm really enjoying them.

I am so loving this series of yours!  I never dated a best friend ... I wonder what would've happened if I did.

krobbie67 said...

Yup, the best friend pay back. Did that oh once or twice, or so. ;-) ---Robbie

slowmotionlife said...

Oh, John Paul.  Foxy!  tehehe.. Or wait... is that Moon??

I dated a few bad boys.  What is it about a bad boy that we find so appealing?  The good boys we like.  But the bad boys we lurve!!  LOL  Gawd, I was so lucky to end up with a good boy.  I guess I'd had my share of bad boys by the time he came along. :P

Love the sneaking out stories.  I was always too afraid to sneak out, but my sister Leah was a pro!  That girl was FEARLESS!!  Thankfully, we lived in a one-story.  LOL  No ladders required.  tehehe..
