Sneak Peek

This time when he waited for me out in the dark parking lot, it seemed we both were reluctant to leave. I knew it was dangerous to be out in the open like this for any length of time, but the thought of going home to my empty little house to wile away the hours until sleep, daydreaming about him, was daunting.

He seemed to catch on to my reticence to leave and started up a conversation. “Can I take you somewhere?” His words sent my heart into overdrive and once again I found myself at a crossroads.  “What?” My voice sounded foreign even to my own ears. Maybe because my heart was lodged somewhere in my throat. He’d caught me in the middle of one of my new fantasies. A fantasy where I was seeing his naked chest. A fantasy that made those tingles I usually get in his presence become so much more.

“What do you mean?” “There’s nothing to be afraid of, just follow me. You’ll like it I promise.” I nodded my head stupidly, all the while cautioning myself. So far we hadn’t crossed any boundaries, hadn’t done anything I couldn’t explain away if need be, but… Again I just nodded my head and climbed into my car. He’d graduated to holding the door open for me and closing it behind me. Tonight he leaned in and pulled the seatbelt snug across my middle and snapped it around my hip. I forgot how to breathe.

Once again my glasses saved me as he didn’t move away immediately, but stayed there almost suspended in time as he looked down at me. Can he hear my heart beating or is it just me? I didn’t release my breath until he moved away and closed the door. Chapter 8 LIZ *** I had no idea where we were going, but I knew that tonight would change things. I can no longer pretend to myself, could no longer keep it all in my head. I was very aware that I was crossing a line. A line that I’d never have expected someone like me to blur let alone jump over with both feet. It felt almost like I was standing on the sidelines watching it all happen, unable and unwilling to stop it. I was afraid though to take that last step. To admit to myself that I wanted this. Afraid of what would transpire once I move my toe one step over the line into the forbidden.

My body was responding without my say-so. Though alarm bells clanged in my head, my heart and feet were on a forward march as I followed him through the night into the unknown. He drove out to the Sound overlooking the water. A place of which I’d heard but had had no reason to visit before. The scenery was tranquil, the kind of place I love and I was touched. How did he know that I’d appreciate something like this?
