Hooking Up

Avatar Author: Raegan Dauterive My mind is a mystery nobody can solve. Read Bio

It happened on a sunny August day.
“That feels amazing,” you said between breaths.
I took you in my mouth and knew.
That moment I knew happiness.
I felt it, in my heart,
in my hand; in my mouth,
I tasted pure happiness.

We won’t tell anyone.
Afterwards we hugged.

It surpises me how much it never happened.
Your wife doesn’t know.
Yet, each time I see you I want more.
It pains me to see you act like we’re still just friends.

Now there is an elephant in the room.
A big, pink elephant.

    hmm, that’s weird, I didn’t mean for it to be creepy at all :/
    I don’t see it…

    not creepy. the infidelity aspects felt real. and the “being friends” being compared to a big pink elephant were funny.

    Love it. I hadn’t seen this piece of yours… kind of funny that we both wrote ficlies in a similar vein.

    ^ I guess. I wrote it about a friend I’ve known since fourth grade, he got married a year ago and allegedly cheated on his wife with one of his childhood friends.

    I thought it might be fun to try and see her point of view.

Whoa there, partner, hold up!
