Confiteor

“Bless me father for I have sinned. I’m sorry, I’m not catholic, I’ve never done this before, I don’t really know the procedure”

“It’s ok my son. We are all God’s children here. Why don’t you just start at the beginning”

The first time he’d laid eyes on her, he felt his heart stop. She was almost as tall as he was, her lithe frame enrobed in a flowing blue gown, her hair done in bantu knots, sitting like a majestic crown on her head. She noticed him staring at her and blushed, a small cute smile appearing on her beautiful face. At that moment, Teddy knew he was gone. continue reading......
