9. I'm your woman. I'll watch you undress, and you can watch me undress and striptease, darling.

12. I'm your woman. Turn the lights down low, and love me as if there's tomorrow.

13. I'm your woman. I'll always make you proud of me.

14. I'm your woman. You're my sugar babe and sweet Julie Mango.

Chapter Two

Lee Did Not Know I Was a Virgin

44. Lee. Let's go dancing tomorrow night. I'm so excited.

45. Melony. When Lee picked me up in his slick cream Cadillac with green tinted windows and leather seats, I was feeling so good. He gave me a red rose and kissed my hand. My knees buckled for a couple of minutes.

He placed his hands on my hips as he escorted me to his car, and a photographer suddenly appeared and took pictures of us.

We drove in silence with him holding my hand for a few minutes at a time, telling me how beautiful I looked. We parked for a while when another photographer gave us a table with two gold glasses, and a bottle of nonalcoholic champagne. I said to myself, I love this. All women deserve a high-class performance once in a while, say, four times a year. Ladies, what do you think?

As we sipped the champagne, he kissed me a couple of times. I was in heaven; I could have stayed out there all night, I was feeling so good. We made a grand entrance inside the ballroom. Our table was decorated with red roses. When I sat down, Lee gave me a small gold box. I was stunned when I opened it. There was a beautiful diamond necklace. As he snapped it on, he kissed my neck. I said to myself, "Lord, have mercy, what is Lee doing to me?"

46. Lee was smoking hot in his two-piece casual suit with short sleeves glitter on the pockets and on the heels of his red shoes. His slick black hair parted at the side, with his six foot frame, he was looking better than so many movie stars. I wore a black lace dress with a thigh-high slit, red satin shoes, red lace tights, and a red rose on my pulled-back hair.

47. Melony. I love to tango. I felt so good with his body close to my mine and the smell of his peppermint-and-cinnamon breath on my neck. Lee had eyes for me only. I was so hypnotized and weak, but I never let him know what his presence had done to me. Then suddenly the music stopped, and we were the only couple on the dance floor. We danced the waltz, the calypso samba, and the tango, to the rousing and standing ovation of everyone.

You would think we were winners of Dancing with the Stars.

48. Melony. When I sat down, I felt the hot sweat dripping down between my legs. I went to the powder room and washed my powder puff. On my return, Lee asked me if I needed some help. Was there anything he could do for me? At 1:30 a.m., we left for the fifty-minute ride home. He kissed me, asking if I had a good time. I said, wonderful time. He invited me to visit his dance studio, I said okay. As I got to the door, he gave me the longest sweet kiss.

49. We were dating for a year, and I decided to invite him to spend the weekend with me. I was very scared, but Lee played "Tonight Is the Night" by Betty Wright, which helped calm my nerves. Lee was shocked that I was a virgin but was very happy. After breakfast, Lee got down on his knees, asking me to marry him. I screamed and said yes. As my voice quivered in shock, I said, "I love you." He gave me the longest kiss, my knees buckled once again. We ended in the love seat holding on tight, never wanting to let go of each other. Lee jumped up and pulled me up from the sofa with these words, "You are going to be my wife." I then took a good look at the ring.

Lee asked, "You like it?" I said, "Yes, it is beautiful."

Lee said, "Melony, I want to introduce you to all my family with the good news."

I was surprised to see my parents and so many friends at Lee's parents' home for lunch. His parents were very happy. They said they prayed at church I would say yes because they wanted me to be their daughter-in-law. I then realized this was a planned surprise that came out very well.

My parents and family was very happy. A year later, I became Mrs. Price in a lavish wedding. We are now the proud parents of three: Joy and Jody, twin girls who are now studying to be doctors at the same hospital, and Sasha, twenty-eight an entertainment lawyer. We still do the Tango, Lee brings me roses and champagne. I do get sweaty between my legs but not like when I was younger. Every day we tell each other I love you and never go to bed angry. Heaven sent me this wonderful man, and I'm happy that I kept my virginity for him. And to this day, he lets me know how very happy he is.

50. I'm your woman. Touch me one more time, because you made me yours.

51. I'm your woman. Your laughter is contagious.

52. I'm your woman. Think about me while I'm thinking about you.

53. Melony. Lee and I are enjoying life to the fullest.

54. Lee. Honey I'm home.

55. Melony. I want to give you some good loving.

56. Lee. You make me feel so good when I'm close to you.

57. I'm your woman. Turn the lights down low, and play Marvin Gaye's CD, "Let's Get It On." I'm in the right place at the right time.

58. I'm your woman. Stay with me there will never be a dull moment.

59. I'm your woman. We have been dating for two years. We are a part of each other.

60. I'm your woman. Can I rest my head on your chest? It's nice to hear your heart beat.

61. I'm your woman. You're so precious.

Chapter Three

Everyday Life

62. I'm your woman. My heart is beating so fast. I must be in love.

63. I'm your woman. Unfold your inner beauty, and I'll do the same for you.

64. Kathy. I've put weight on. Starting my diet today all junk food is out.

I'll be exercising and eating healthier.

65. I'm your woman. I'll support you. Get tough with yourself, you will make it through. At times you will ask yourself what you are doing. Just keep on and try not to fall off the wagon. You can have my scale. Come over and pick it up.

* Janice, lost sixty-seven pounds. She did it when her relationship went sour. Roslyn. lost thirty-two pounds after the birth of her son.

* Smokey gained twenty-five pounds after the birth of her baby boy; her husband asked for a divorce.

Jamison lost fifty pounds. He is looking so fine. He has a manicure and a pedicure. His wife moved out the house because she had put on fifty-four pounds eating a lot of potatoes, cookies, and ice cream.

66. Kathy. Thank you so much. It is so easy to put the pounds on. Taking it off is like taking a hundred-pound dress off your body, but I'm very determined to never give up.

Who's it? Call back later, I'm exercising.

67. I'm your woman. Clarice and Jim lost their two-month-old baby girl. They are having a hard time. I did tell them not to do much shopping to buy an outfit to leave the hospital. After having a baby shower and putting a nice nursery together, the baby did not make it. Gosh, it's like being jolted by a bolt of lightning.

68. I'm your woman. To relieve some stress, watch the butterflies of the world, such a calming effect. I'm in awe at all times on this journey of butterfly watching. Then I go on to watching waterfalls and flowers.

69. I'm your woman. You don't have to worry. I'll not cheat on you.

70. I'm your woman. Tell me you love me only.
