There something about Kompa music that it takes over your minds and make you feel like you really in love! The dancing, the rhythm, the lyrics are just real. Walking into my cousin's annual birthday party that falls on Valentine's Day is always a production you have to kiss everyone and everyone is waiting to see what I have on. As you walk into the house you spell the food. OMG, I canít wait to eat. I walk down the stairs and I immediately notice him as he strolled from my Red hot pantenlet pump to my pantyhose to my glitter tight black dress that did not need to be that short and finally our eyes meet, the feeling that went through my body was unbearable. How could he still make me feel this way. I smiled and looked away. I could feel him watching and he sense was yeah I still have her. There was a spread of food everywhere, Black Mushroom Rice( Diri Jojo) Chicken in sauce, Fried Chicken, Macaroni and Cheese, Lasanga, Groit, Tassot, Fried Plantains, Green Salad, ď Where is the Russain Salad(Saland Ris better known as beet Salad) There is no Haitian Party with Beet Salad, Black Rice and Griot Even if the host doesnít eat pork, they will still serve it. ď It is the fridge my cousin makes a great Russain Salad. As I fix my plate to eat, (Yes I walked in and made a plate I was already late and hungry donít judge me). I noticed He fixes a sit right next to him for me to eat. I sat not saying a word but eating and feeling very nerves. I havenít been next to him like this in about 19 years. He reached over and whispered in my ear. Do you remember what we use to do? The summer that my mom died was very hard for my dad. It was hard, we were black that whole summer and we didnít go to Haiti. We went to Haiti every summer for the whole summer vacation. I guess because times were getting touch my dad rented our playroom to then my cousin boyfriend which is her husband and his little brother who about eight years old then, I think they just came from Haiti. ďCome hereĒ the younger brother would call and I knew what that meant. He would want me to lay down in front of him and we would watch TV. He would touch me all over, he then pull down my underwear and began to rub his hand in between my butt, I later realized that it was his penis because I accidentally touched it and got scared that I never touched it again. This was routine every night, but I began to like it and he no longer had to call me. He would watch pornography with me and try to experiment on me. He once open my legs and started to lick the top of my vagina but my brother walk in on us and he stops. I smiled as I continue to eat my food. He leaned over and told me that I was beautiful and sexy. I felt like the little nine-year-old girl who was in room wanting him to touch me. He continues to whisper I never got a chance to have you because you were too young but I would love to have you tonight. Did he molest me or did he like me? I smiled and I began to want him to touch me. As I finish eat he ask me to dance. As he held me close to him. He asks do you have kids I said one a boy are you with the father I said yes. I ask him he said 2 and the mother. He answered Yes I love her dearly but I want you tonight. As we dance the night and he held me close I could feel his imprint against my body. I wish I was in his bed and making love. How could I be in this cloud with the guy who molested me at 9 but he was 15 could he had liked me. He whispered did you like the food! And I started to laugh, then he said I like the Beet Salad the most. When we finish dancing can you go sneak me some and pack it away so I can take it home. My wife donít cook like this. All I could do is laugh!! And say Sure
