Have you ever been snuggled with your lover and talked quietly in the dark? You know on those nights when you aren't shagging, or so comatose you fall asleep the moment your head touches the pillow. In the many years I've been with the guy I live with we've had many evenings when we have done those things.
Sometimes when we are snuggling, talking and laughing together in the dark he asks, "Have you read any good books lately?" This is his invitation to tell him about a book that affected me strongly. Of course, he's a guy so he's usually hoping for something sexy and wicked, but every once in a while we have a conversation that really reveals something about ourselves to the other.
Once such time we had this discussion on fantasys. TGILW says he has no fantasys. Yeah, that quickly turned into a conversation that involved raised voices and the lights getting turned back on. Eventually, he let loose with some of his fantasys and a story I wrote...for him...called His Kiss was born.
So when I ran across it yesterday, I gave it a quick read. I hadn't looked at it in literally years. Reading it instantly put me back into that conversation in the dark when we really DID talk about our fantasys. It changed things...forever. That was a good thing.
