Everyone Remembers Their First Time
Our first time seeing Christmas lights. First time eating cake. First crush, kiss, and first love. They leave marks on our souls. There is one other 'first' that stays with us.
That first naughty thing that young, inexperienced adults do that turns them into experienced ones. It’s a threshold that can go one of two ways when it’s crossed. It can be bliss for some of us, but sometimes the moment isn’t perfect. In fact, sometimes we’d prefer to forget it. Unfortunately, first times like that are rule-breaking events and, therefore, they scorch our minds with a burning memory.
Mitchell and Nina were once perfect young lovers. He recalls how special it was for them when they crossed their respective thresholds together. Their moment was fraught with expectation, fear, and doubt smothered in nervous kindness. It could've gone either way, but this encounter had a tender, fairy tale ending.
Listen to the podcast to hear how that first time played out. Who knew guys could think and feel that way? (For more of their story, please read SEETHINGS on Smashwords. It's free.)
But no matter how memorable that first time was for the couple, it wasn’t an indicator of everlasting love. Sure, they were insatiable — and they continued seeing each other until their sex ran out — but they weren’t compatible outside the bedroom. Their fire faded two years later. They parted ways, but their desire never left. Every five years, they reconnected and rekindled their passion, soaring to places their partners couldn’t take them.
Their relationship ended in a sudden death twenty years later. Now the fire must burn elsewhere, or another sudden death will occur.
"Forman’s writing style is artful, with the protagonist Mitchell’s warped thought processes masterfully exposed. The author has a powerful and vivid command of language and his word pictures are stark and disturbingly real."
