Slowly, he approached her, his gaze never leaving her face, as if to reassure her that this fateful moment was destined to happen, no matter how hard they had tried to suppress these feelings and culminating passion that has been slowly building up and which unknowingly they have been feeding. They knew that this would be the turning point of their ‘relationship’ but also, they could no longer avoid this moment. They have tried hard to fight off and brush off this on-going attraction and desire between them and pass off this phase as something inconsequential. But they were only fooling themselves and whatever they have been feeling and felt at this exact moment ran deeper than that, something which they could not describe and did not have any answers to.
She held his gaze as well and looked deeply into his eyes. Her eyes bore no fear, no guilt and no shame, only pure adoration, acceptance and submission, in anticipation of what was going to take place.
But, she also had mixed feelings, she so wanted to give in to this precious moment and to him but at the same time, she felt something restraining her, her mind telling her that she was not entitled to this fleeting moment of passion. They knew how right they were for each other and at the same time so wrong. As she reeled in her thoughts, suddenly she felt that the air was filled with a soft thumping sound, as her heart began to beat at a rhythm yet unknown to her. As their eyes met, without a spoken word, the thumping and pounding escalated into a cacophony of splendour whisking her along and quietened her mind about the numerous questions they held.
She parted her lips to talk to him.
“Shhhh…”, he whispered, by putting his finger on her parted lips.
“Don’t say anything, just breathe in this special moment and enjoy this soulful silence”, he said, and at the same time, taking her hand slowly in his and leading her towards him.
When his touch grazed her arms in the lightest yet so engaging and sultry manner, all her senses went reeling and common sense completely abandoned her and she just melted in his embrace. They were drawn together by an unseen force, a peaceful and deliciously intoxicating force. Face to face, they silently held on to each other until they could only see each other, feel each other and become totally emmeshed in each other. Their union was heart wrenching and earth shattering, it was something which neither of them has experienced before such that the forces which pushed them towards each other had to bow down to their explosive union and complicity.
And he thoroughly taught her that one cannot take pleasure without giving pleasure, and that every gesture, every caress, every touch, every glance, every last bit of the body has its secret, which brings happiness to the person who knows how to wake it. He taught her that after a celebration of love, they should not part without admiring each other, without being conquered or having conquered, so that neither is bleak or glutted or has the bad feeling of being used or misused. He taught her and showed her what she had always been craving for and been missing all her life and the true spirit of abandoning herself and letting her soul wandering to the ethereal bliss that he has provided her as feeling a wholesome. In that moment, she was only his and nothing else mattered.
At last, she felt contented and complete.
