I wish I had a boyfriend. I wish he lived in the wardrobe on a coat hanger. Whenever I wanted, I could get him out and he looked at me the way boys doing films as if I'm beautiful. He wouldn't speak much. He'll be breathing hard as he took off his leather jacket and unbuckled his jeans. He'd wear white pants. It is so gorgeous, had almost faint. He'd take my clothes off, too.
