The First Time

"Won't it hurt?"

"It doesn't have to."

"What will my parents say?"

"They don't even have to know about it."

"Surely they'll be able to tell."

"Not really, you can hide it."

"I'm scared it's going to be written all over my face."

"I'll be right there with you. Let's just do it and get it over with."

"Well, I have always wanted to."

"Exactly. It's time. What are you waiting for? I mean, you are 17!"

"Yeah, I just don't want it to hurt."

"It's different for everyone, but really it's all over before you know it."

"How many times have you done it?"

"Three. This will be my fourth."

"Your fourth?! I had no idea! Didn't know you were an old pro."

"Yeah, I guess you could say that."

"Okay, I'm ready. I think I'm ready."

"Are you sure?"

"Yes. But let's hurry before I change my mind."

"I am so excited for you! And don't worry, we'll fix your hair so your ears won't even show."

This post is fiction and was written for The Red Dress Club's writing meme, Red Writing Hood. This weeks prompt is: write a post using solely dialogue.

Ha, ha! I wasn't guessing you meant ear piercing.

LOL..your tweet threw me for a definite loop. Silly mama! I was going to say, yeah it hurt and my parents knew right away, from reading my diary, those dang snoopers. You'd think I were a teenager again, ha ha, but I did learn I will never read my child's diary from my lack of privacy.

At the ending, I had to chuckle. That was a very good turn around. The ears wouldn't bother me. The belly...ahh...not too much, depending on their age of course, but the tounge.. eww gross! Or anything down south, but this I'd never know!

I got to learn to curb my dirty mind here. I wasn't one who thought that it wouldn't be an obvious, as I thought, lol.

I like how it wasn't obvious what was going on until the end. I was actually thinking tattoo. Great dialogue!

Oh, I thought maybe a tattoo. Great job! Glad you finally got hooked on the Writing Hood prompts :)

I was sure it was a tattoo!
Great job fooling us, Tonya.
Were you really 17 when you had them pierced? Or is this fiction?
I love seeing you link up every week! :)

I bought it hook, line and sinker. 17 is late for ears but not for everything else!

Haha there were some nice clues along the way on that one but I didn't put it together to the end. Nice dialogue!

I still didn't get it til I read the comments. DOH! I'm a little slow over here.

Love it, and I'm so glad you're loving doing the prompts!

I liked the little twist at the end. If only those conversation were always so innocent(ish).

I said, "Phew!" at the end. :) What a fun read!

Ha! It's funny how many of conversations kind of start the same way. Especially when you're a teenager.

At first I thought, whoa, being a little cavalier about having sex for the first time, but nope, ears pierced.

That was great!
