I sat down and started talking to him. After that I had a huge crush on him, I fell for him hard. I found out a few weeks later he's married and has three kids. I was shocked! I didn't want to talk or look at him anymore. We didn't talk for a while. Until one night, at a party I was so drunk on beer and gin I passed out. The driver helped me up but I was so embarrassed I walked away from the party and went to a friend's house nearby.
Soon, my crush, the driver, appeared before me and I knew something was bound to happen. I felt weird because we were only friends but we started kissing like crazy. I felt like a whore but it felt incredible! I woke up the next morning with only my skirt on. He was also naked. I was scared but happy. We left and forgot we didn't come home. Everyone in the neighborhood knew what happened because we were both gone that night. My clothes were messy and my hair was disheveled. When I walked in, the men smiled and the girls hated me. But it was the greatest night of my life!
