An online liaison leads to flirting, and flirting leads to a first tentative meeting. Wanting, needing, hoping, desperate, begging for a kiss. Writhing and needy. Deferred and denied. You would think that a kiss would be the most reasonable of expectations, given that I was naked, spread-eagled and tied to the bed. You would be incorrect.
You always remember your first. Your first kiss, your first love, your first loss. Especially when they are all wrapped up in the same person Also the first time that I was overtly pursued, and confidently claimed. That relationship set a pattern for who I was and what I valued.
