Closed Curtains | Flash Fiction by Wordsmithpraise


She locked the door and closed the curtains. The room was swallowed by utter darkness till a light sparked at a corner. She lit a lamp and dimmed it. All this while, I stood with my gaze beamed at her.

Her clothes fell in a pool of her feet then she counted her steps till her hand touched my chest.Our lips interlocked. For a second, I felt as though a fire was lit within me and my soul began to burn. A burning desire.

Her hands journeyed through my buttons till my shirt left my body. We staggered upon the bed behind. I planted kisses upon her breasts and felt her revel in it.

“Take off your trousers,” she whispered. Suddenly I felt a quake in my chest. For a minute, I froze. It was my first time. Seconds later, the curtains were drawn apart and the door unlocked. I tried to speak but the words sunk into my chest and my feet found its way out.
The next day. We became friends. We became ‘just’ friends, Forever.
