Three weeks ago, we loaded up a much-too-small Uhaul, three vehicles, 2 kids and a cat for a 500-mile trek across three states.

His voice boomed, clapping like thunder in the small SUV as they drove away from Wendy's. She drove silently, desperately trying to keep her tears at bay so not to upset him even more.
It was not just the way his fingers brushed her skin that excited her But the way he traced every scar burned into her soul without even knowing It wasn't just her body that cried out for him, lost in desire and lust But the most vulnerable pieces of her self that screamed his name … Continue reading Upon the Wings of Intimacy
