The InterludePosted: August 29, 2013
it was time for her to go. it was about 9am, i was showering and as i finished, i watched her putting on her bra, her jeans, her oh-so-tight t shirt. her back was to me. she looked amazing. when she was looking for her shirt which was on the floor on my side of the bed (where i had undressed her). she reached across, her hand dangling over the side of the bed, and she stopped. it was like watching a sculpture come alive.
i heard this in my head as i watched her.
she appeared to inhale deeply, then dropped her face into the comforter. she stayed like that for a good 10 seconds. then reached over and found her shirt. as she put it on she saw me watching and jumped in surprise.
“DANNY….how long have you been watching me?”
“long enough.” i answered.
she smiled and shook her head and called me predictable. i laughed and told her that was a predictable response to my predictable reply. she stared at me for a moment and i told her she should finish getting dressed.
“you trying to run me off?”
i laughed and told her, “no, your job is.”
she got dressed and as i walked her to the door, she stopped. she asked me what i was to her. i smiled and told her she was a bird that brought song into my dreary world (cheesy…maybe, but i know her and you don’t). i knew she’d like the line. and let’s face it: most women know when a guy is bs’ing them with fancy sentiments, but they still love it.
i pulled her to me and kissed her. she pressed herself into me and i had a firm grasp of her lower back. i let her go, and opened the door…..and off she went. i stayed in the doorway until she drove off, closed the door, then watched some sports center. don’t know when i’ll see her again, i just know i will. i thought back on the night and it reminded me of this line from the movie “elegy”
“when you make love to a woman you get revenge for all the things that defeated you in life.”
indeed. happy hunting.
