I was baptized when I was 14 years old. I hadn't had any real relationship with a girl up to that point. But when I started going to high school I learnt the joys of experimenting with girls, so I did not stay a faithful member of the congregation for long.
When I was 16 years old, I had told a witness friend of mine who I braggingly told about what I had done with this witness girl I was seeing at the time. As I should have expected that rumour was spread quickly until one guy heard it who gave me the ultimatum to go to the elders or he would. So I had to come clean and see the elders. Of course, why wouldn't a 16 year old boy go talk about his sexual acts with 3 older men that makes perfect sense...
So there I was with 3 older brothers of the congregation I had known my whole life. Their fake names were Chad, Walt and Mark. Chad was in his 40s and was a close if not the closest male friend to my dad. He was kind of a quack, had a real weird energy to him. Walt was probably the oldest elder in our hall, in his late seventies or eighties. He was big and a real man's man, very straight and to the point with things. And Mark was just the worst. He would give you these guilty looks and try and encourage people by going out in service with him but during that time he would just ask you why you weren't doing more in the congregation. And others from my congregation can attest to that. He also just so happened to be the grandfather of that same guy who made me talk to the elders. Dick.
So the elders sit me down and ask me about what happened, and asking for a detailed description of what happened. So I told them. I said that me and this girl had made out and that I fingered her... At that moment Walt asked what fingering meant.
Chad spoke up and said "it is penetration of the vagina using the fingers."
Walt and Mark both made a sigh acknowledging that they were up to speed.
It was silent for a minute, until Mark asked me "And did she finger you as well?"
At that moment I went from just feeling awkward to trying my hardest to not laugh right in Marks face because it was the funniest thing I had ever heard. I told him I did not finger her. And I don't remember anything else they said because I was putting all my energy into keeping a straight face.
And then I found out, I would be reproved. Yaaaay!
