The Heartless Game

The bass line pumping through the stereo was pulsating with the rhythm of my heart. The chill of the night air stung my cheeks; hit my exposed skin with a voracity that helped cool my scorching flesh. He was pressed up against me, blocking my airways so I couldn’t breathe … or was it that I didn’t want to? I was afraid that if I made a single move, it would all be over. It would have been a sad, irretrievable dream. I was afraid of him and the power that he wielded over me. At that moment, I was completely his. Yet we had only just met.

One minute we were standing by the bar, chatting. The next I was inside his car and he was inside of me. If only he knew how long I’d been waiting for him, watching him, craving his touch. I had contemplated this very moment over and over again, a thousand times in my mind. I was scared to look in his eyes; petrified of what I’d see. Would I see longing and desire? Or would I see pity; desperation?…
