There was no answer at the ranch. I set the phone down on the bed, and turned to watch Shea playing on the bed with Felix. She had him wrestled into a position forcing him to submit. I leaned back in my chair and admired Shea’s face. Her bright green eyes, her smile that could make anyone smile, and her long, blonde hair draped over her shoulders. She looked up at me and caught me dazed in a trance over her. She giggled and rolled off the bed, slowly crawling towards me on her hands and knees. Her long, natured hair covering most of her face, and a sinister grin. She put her hands on my knees and pulled herself up to make eye contact with me. She came in real close, her nose radiating heat onto mine. She stared into my eyes and smiled. She giggled again, taking her hands off my knees and slowly sliding them up my chest, onto my shoulders.
She whispered in my ear, “It’s your turn”.
She picked me up and tossed me on the bed, no effort required. Straddled on top of me, her fingers digging into my chest, I stared deeply into her eyes and said, “Is that so? You think I’m going to let you win that easy, huh”?
Before she could even open her mouth, I had her on her back with her arms above her head, holding her by her wrists.
“You seem surprised”, I chuckled.
“You’re getting faster”, she said innocently.
“Who were you calling there”?
“The ranch, nobody answered”.
“Really”? Her voice jumped with excitement.
“Does that mean we can spend the night there”?
“Yeah, or even the whole weekend”, I suggested.
“Well, it is our last full moon together until I have to go back with the others for a while”. She smirked, then her expression dimmed, and became wary.
“Don’t you be getting all sappy with me”, I pouted as I ticked her ribs.
She went ecstatic and bucked me right off the bed. I landed flat on my back on the floor and instantaneously appeared in the same position I just had her in.
She grinned, “Psshhh, who’s getting sappy”?
“I’m just going to miss you, is all”.
The next couple of hours were filled by messy, destructive, wild, but passionately human love and sex.
I remembered laying in bed with her in my arms, her head on my chest, listening to my heartbeat. I could feel her breath across my skin as it got cooler, until I could see it evaporating into the air. The moon beamed through the window, across our silverish skin. She looked up at me and said with her wide eyes, silver halos forming around her iris,
“We will see each other again, right”? She seemed concerned.
We’ve done this hundreds of times, and now I am unsure why she is insecure of our future.
“You’re the reason I put up with this life. Nothing stands in the way of me getting back to you”.
“You’re a shithead”, she sounded annoyed.
I laughed. “Real soon we’re going to forget about what has happened, but you have to promise yourself that you will try to remember”.
A genuine smile appeared on her face, and that’s where my memory fades.
I must have blacked out that time, as we began to turn and lose control.
I remember waking up the next morning, covered in blood, laying on my bed. I looked over, foolishly, hoping that by some sort of miracle, she would be laying next to me. I knew it would be impossible.
I layed there for a couple minutes, trying to recall the memories from the night before. All I could see was that smile on her face. I kept it in my mind as I closed my eyes and let myself drift away into a deep sleep.
“I’ll see you in my dreams”, I said as the dream world swept me away.
