TITLE: IS IT NOW YET?
GENRE: Women's Fiction
Em is married, middle-aged. Andres, a younger seasonal worker hired for the summer. Though they have fallen in love, they have never expressed their desires.
Andres and I had stood close to each other in the cold dampness of my garage that fateful Sunday morning. Both of us looked deep into the other’s eyes, both knowing this would be the last time we might ever see each other. I wasn’t sure what he wanted to happen. My thoughts went fuzzy. My heart beat fast. And then he put his arms around me and I pressed into his broad firm chest. As his arms drew me in, reality slipped away.
A wave of passion enveloped me and I languished that feeling for only a few seconds before pulling away and looking into his eyes. They were saying something to me. What?
He then brought his face to mine.
Next his lips.
A season of wanting this man so much my soul ached, and now I was not only in Andres’ arms, but kissing him.
Lord, I am not sorry.
I am not ashamed.
At least not yet.
Perhaps I will be.
But not at this moment.
I am in love with Andres.
I'll deal with the guilt tomorrow.
