The air is cool, the breeze kissing our skin as the waves fill our ears with a soothing lullaby. We take in the salty air around us, leaving all of our worries behind with every breath. Although the air is crisp, the space between us is anything but. Our bodies are inches from each other, but not quite touching; sparks of desire and lust fill the gap.
After several long moments, our eyes finally meet, and everything around us and inside us intensifies. His eyes–crystal blue, lightly speckled with grey and hints of green–appear as swirling galaxies filled with burning, passionate energy… and mine are emitting a lustful curiosity. Our eyes are locked, and the energy between us transforms from shy and reserved to eagerness and fantasy.
Our gaze breaks momentarily down to each other’s lips. And suddenly, the void between us is gone. Our lips meet with a fiery intensity, sending uncontrollable emotion throughout. Skin meets skin and heaven meets hell. What’s bad is good–what’s wrong is right. Inhibitions are lost as our bodies are one and time stands still.
As our eyes open, the blur around us comes back into focus, and we slowly pull away, taking in one last look. Just as fast as the moment lasted, we turn our focus back to the water, and we become strangers once again.
