Back in our hotel room, I finally slid off my heels. “You better get the drinks and music sorted out first this time.” I said, my eyes running over Seth’s naked torso. “Something about fucking you seems to evaporate all the water from my body”
He fired up the laptop, put on the Attitude playlist, then poured some red wine and placed it on the bedside table before reclining back on the bed. I felt his eyes follow me around the room as I stripped off my jewellery and anything else that could be ripped or broken.
“I gonna take this dress off before you do something terrible to it.” I said fumbling with the knotted leather of my obi as I climbed onto him.
He gave me another deep look as though he were reading my soul. “Eden, you aren’t pissed are you?”
“No, I’ve barely had anything to drink at all.”
“You sure?” Seth looked at me as if to reassure himself that I was still capable of rational thought.
“I promise you, I’m not drunk. I know what I am doing. I want this.” I looked deep into his eyes. It was like witnessing eternity. A lifetime in his eyes, that was my ultimate truth. I wanted that more than anything else the universe could ever offer. I leaned in close and whispered “Don’t worry, I’ll be gentle.”
“I’m not entirely convinced that you are capable of that.” Seth smiled, his hands gripping my waist and his eyes devouring me.
I shuddered in delight and slipped off my dress.
In the background, Cracker’s Low began to play.
“You know, this song will always remind me of fucking you,” I murmured.
Seth smiled as if it pleased him that I would have some locked memory that would never change but it made me a little sad, reminding me that all too soon our time was coming to an end. It made the sex between us more tender. As I allowed myself to fall deep into his eyes, I wanted time to stop right then so I could feel that exquisite magic forever.
