One day, a guy finally came my way and I wasn't about to make the opportunity miss me because him did cute. We text pon the phone regular and then him finally ask me fi visit him.

But I was a house rat, so I had to make up a lie to tell my granny. I told her that I was going to look for my uncle in Spanish Town, but, in reality, mi go down a country go look fi di boy.

We had a jolly time kissing up pon neck and nuff things. I didn't even know that I got hickey on my neck until me reach back home and me faas cousin point it out, saying I must use hot water and comb it out before mi granny see it.

I told her to leave me alone because I want to keep it to remember the good time I had with my man. The next day, I was washing at the pipe and granny see the hickey on my neck with her one eye. She ask a who do it.

Me mek up a lie quick and say it happened when me and my cousin were playing under the ackee tree. She call me cousin and start give the two a we some lick with a broom stick. Fi the whole day me couldn't walk.
