The party was on, as Joe’s parents were going away to Europe for two weeks and his cool Aunt Betty would be watching him. Steve and Bill were already hanging out there when Cindy, Sue and Lucy arrived. Joe told his Aunt that they were going down into the basement to watch TV and she said, “Don’t do anything that I wouldn’t do, but I guess that gives you a lot of leeway, as I was pretty wild when I was your age.” Cindy said, “I love your Aunt, she is so cool” and Joe said, “That’s because she is from Chicago and it gets frigid there.” Cindy laughed and Sue said, “I still can’t believe that we will be in High School next year and I wonder how much our lives will change.”
Steve said, “Sue, you have changed a lot already, as just three years ago you were flat as a board and now you got some real gazongas girl.” Lucy said, “Girls are more than just tits, we are people also and personally I am not at all offended when others look at my breasts, as cave women did not cover their breasts and it was not a big deal till women started hiding them. Hey I look at men’s bulges every now and then I even look at women’s butts, but Steve you need to grow up as we will be in High School come September.” Bill said, “Since Lucy admitted to looking at other girl’s butts, I think that we should play Truth or Dare.”
Joe said, “We are not Millennials and that game is old school, I think that since we are Generation Z, we should play Sacrifice, Secret or Sin, which is much more fun.” Cindy said, “You are not tricking me into playing some game that I never heard of, especially without explaining all the rules.” Joe said, “The rules are simple and you don’t need to be a rocket scientist or a brain surgeon to play. All participants will be given the choice between giving up something precious, which is considered a Sacrifice, or revealing something that they are hiding, this is the Secret option, or committing a forbidden act which we will call a Sin. It does not matter how you play the game, as the object is to win and you do that by being the last one in the game. You can quit at any time, but if you decide to quit, then you have to leave the basement and go sit upstairs with my Aunt. We each take turns and we all do Sacrifice, then Secret and finally Sin. For Sacrifice, you must give up something and an item of your clothing would work nicely for this. When we get to Secret, you must divulge something that none of the others know. For Sin, you must do something that you normally would not do because you think it as being wrong.”
Sue said, “I think that this game could be awesome, but only if the boys all go first, so us girls don’t come off looking like we are as dumb as a doorknob.” Lucy said, “I second that”, and Cindy chimed in and said, “Let it be so.” Steve said, “I am fine with the boys going first for each round, but not for doing all three S’s, so after we do Sacrifice, then the girls must go.” Bill said, “That will work for me and since we are giving up our clothes, we should probably just rename Sacrifice, to be Strip instead, that is unless this game is going to progress into sacrificing a live goat or something like that.” Joe said, “I did not make this game up and the three S’s came from my cousin and I have never played it before, but I can dispel any fears that you have about us sacrificing any live animals, as if that takes place, then I will be the first one to make a bee line out of the basement and sit upstairs with my Aunt.”
Joe said he would go first and he kicked off his shoes. Lucy said, “At this rate, it will take all day for us to see anything good.” Steve stood up and took off his belt and said, “Is that any better?” The girls cheered and Bill stood up and removed his shirt. Cindy got up and wiggled her hips back and forth and said, “I guess it is my turn and I find this to be very empowering having everyone’s eyes on me, but I am going to make you all wait for the good stuff.” Cindy removed a ribbon from her hair and said, “I am glad I wore layers today.” Sue stood up and said, “I guess you all know that I have a bit of a crazy side, so I won’t disappoint you, but I need some music to do this right.” Joe said, “I can do that for you, I will get you whatever you want and if you need some rope, then just ask.” Sue took off her top and said to Lucy, “Try and beat that!” Lucy stood up and said, “Life is not a fairytale, if you lose your shoe at midnight, you are not Cinderella, you are a drunk.” Sue said, “That is a nice line, but let’s see some skin.”
