Tantalyzing Tuesday Teasers, October 1, 2013 ~ Heart Foils

As Tantalizing Tuesday Teasers rolls around, a plethora of prurient scribes each selected a photo that moved them and wrote a mere 200 words describing their impressions. I was a wee pensive today because my husband had surgery this morning. Any kind of health issue, no matter how small, makes one think reflectively about the past, the present and the future. I did so today while Vince was in having his procedure.

I thought about our first date, oh so many years ago and I thought I would share it with you.  If you enjoy my short, 200 word description of our first embrace, please leave me a comment. Be sure to visit all the other contributing authors and read their flashes then leave a comment. We are all starved for attention and thrive on your entertainment.

Heart Foils
His warmth, his scent assaulted me in a single gasp of air.

I don't know much about love. I only know it is about being so white hot you freeze; It's about losing your breath and control over your limbs, then falling, abandoning all hope of survival alone.  

I felt myself flush and my knees weaken. A blanket of goose flesh fell electrically across my body in graduating, throbbing waves of passion from temperate to scorching.  My heart, my pulse stopped in a single moment as I froze under his spell. I wanted to touch him, to complete the magnetic connection ignited in our glance: embracing flesh against flesh. His breath coiled around my shoulders to my waist and pulled my body irrevocably to him.

I fell into him. I had given up control of my body to the foils of his hot currents. I rode my passions into the heat of his heart and the arms of his affections. 

I tumbled into his love as sure as if I had fallen off of a cliff. He collected me on my decent when my knees buckled and my body folded without resistance into the warm waiting embrace of my new lover.
