would you like to hear a story? “a story?” would you like to hear a story? “tell it to me please!” long before la una niñita negra dreamt of love like this “like this?” never did she think it would turn out the way that it did (like this) “ahh… like this!” then this year in her day today she realized the foreign species planted a little love seed in her heart big impression the impression was big ;) so the new and improved la una mujer negra decided she wants to pursue her hearts desire she waters she speaks spells making sure her green glove fits …and when the plant starts to sprout as does her self honesty… she says “self, i know you’re learning, you’re growing and your heart is getting bigger too… but imma need you… to open up a little bit for this strange strange species that im tryna pursue” her heart said yes, her heart said yes and she was happily ever after a mess..a whole entire mess because her heart said yes but La Mujer Negra, may have waited too long to call him back…
