(about two weeks after meeting up with Katie after 16 years…)
Deep slumber had eluded him for weeks. Tossing and turning in sweat soaked sheets he replayed the sweet rush of emotion as Katie offered herself to him, their first kiss leading to another and then …another.
Cheating was new to him. Before this his knowledge had been limited to continually offering forgiveness to Sara for her own indiscretions, so it pissed him off that to think that he was “one of those people” now. Yet wide awake before dawn, he finally saw the lies his marriage had harbored and whispered Katie’s name, willing his guilt to melt away into love.
I am playing with three people today:
Trifecta offered us the word “NEW” with this definition: having been in a relationship or condition for a short time.
And my first time with 100 word challenge with Velvet Verbosity using the word “SLUMBER.”
