[31_days] an affair in four acts

[info]31_days 06: Of force and friction.
(A/N: somehow related to December 4.)


Act One. A challenge: can you keep up with me?

“Can I kiss you?”

She answers him by initiating it: a gentle push of lip on lip.

A second is all it takes to break away, two seconds to pull each other closer with mouths open, bodies warm with an insatiable hunger for more.

It doesn’t take a minute for his hands to find her legs, and then the space between them. She pushes harder. He pulls faster.

Both forget who challenged who, and how many laps it takes until they finish the race.

-

Act Two. A game: can you resist me?

There is nothing more attractive than the forbidden. A secret gives pleasure only when you have a kindred soul to share it with, while hiding it from the rest of the world.

“What are we eating later?”

“Meat.”

“Meat is tasty. Delicious. I like meat. You’re making me hungry. I’m hungry right now.”

“You have to cook next time.”

“Next time?”

“Tomorrow.”

-

Act Three. A question: when is too much?

The subconscious reveals more truths than you will ever admit yourself. If your body starts rejecting food, it might be time to reject the pleasurable, just as food is pleasurable. One can’t have too many sweets or too much spices.

“What do you want to do?”

“Things I shouldn’t be doing with you.”

-

Act Four. An end: curtain fall.

Distances are necessary. A multi-purpose (negative) space:

(1) for running away,

(2) when coping with change,

(3) for avoiding accidents,

(4) when ends are inevitable.

Bodies undergo withdrawal because there are limits, and you stop yourself from going beyond the margin. We have no control over what we want, but we can let go of things we should not have.

The universe keeps on pulling stars apart that there may be distance before they die. Because there is an attraction to the void. Stars and planets disappear in black holes and we are supposed to find them threatening, not beautiful.

I really like this. It's... neat and yet not overly so. Does that make sense? I'm not sure...
I get it, I think. :) I'm glad you liked it.
