Moonlight Becomes You

 

 

 

by E. A. Irwin

 

 

 

“I can’t believe you did this to me!”

 

 

David ran strong hands along my spine, his fingertips leaving a trail of excited gooseflesh behind. Warm breathy breezes eased around my ear as he spoke. “Sweetheart, I couldn’t help myself.”

 

 

Facing my husband, I focused on his face, noting his eyes gleamed more mischievously than normal. If I could put both hands on my hips to accentuate my disbelief in his actions I would, but from this position it was awkward, plus, those damned fingers kept wearing down my reserve. I grabbed the digits of pleasure to stop their advance to other areas I couldn’t control. “Stop. This is important, David. I mean far past the top of the list of imperative items you assured me would never happen. Seriously, what were you thinking?”

 

 

David stroked my face, sending the tingle to another location as my mind struggled to remain focused. “Come on, Leah, I didn’t do it on purpose. Believe me I’m as surprised as you are.”

 

 

“Likely story. You promised!” Watching David’s eyes melt into smoldering liquid emeralds didn’t foster confidence in his proclaimed innocence. I sighed, touching his ruggedly handsome face, knowing he’d never intentionally harm me even if we took turns toward the bizarre. I squinted at him. Maybe this latest action wasn’t an accident as he claimed. Perhaps he’d planned it and was lying to protect himself. “Did you do this on purpose? David, I need to know. We’ve been married a long time, why did this happen now? Are you losing control?”

 

 

“Leah, I’m always uncontrolled with you, that’s the way it’s been for me. I love you more than life. But I’d never put you in danger, I simply needed to kiss you.”

 

 

“That was not an ordinary kiss and you know it.”

 

 

His facial expression fell further than my desperation. “Okay, I admit the kiss wasn’t ordinary. Nothing we do is ordinary and we both love the outcome. Yet now, an unusual moment of passion and you’re subjected to a foreign lifestyle.”

 

 

“I’ve known about the problem since before we married. I don’t want to blame you; we’ve just been able to manage the situation for years.” A heavy sigh escaped me. “Tell me, what’s different tonight? What made you do this?”

 

 

“An unbelievable frenzy I couldn’t quell stopped reason. The moonlight bathed you and you became ethereal. The beast rose too quickly to stop.”

 

 

I closed my eyes so I wouldn’t see his anguish, and then pulled myself into his embrace, wincing as he touched the bloody bite on my shoulder representing David’s true form of a kiss. “What now? When will I know if what occurred will make me like you?”

 

 

Hot tears fell from him as he whispered into the moonlit room. “Leah, I’m so sorry, please try to forgive me. Unfortunately we’ll have to wait until the next full moon to see if you become a werewolf.”

Blaze!

Now that was quite a feat to surprise you with an ending. I love that considering how much you write and read. I so appreciate you stopping by and reading knowing how busy you are. And I'm really happy you liked the story. I'm slowing getting back in the swing of things. Seems like forever. But you understand.

Thanks again, my friend.

You got me, my friend! First I thought it was infidelity, then that he was a vampire, and wham! Neither one. I love to be surprised. Great story!

LOL Kay! It seems there is a general concensus most people want another addition to this scene. I'll think about that and see what I can come up with to satisfy all the beast lovers out there. Who knows what the next full moon will hold, hmm?

Stefan! Hmm, now that's a first, wanting to go all furry with the moon. Although I'm sure you could work in your sci-fi and do just fine. Thanks for dropping by and reading. Glad you liked the story!

Misdirection sometimes is a good thing in a story. ;-) Glad you liked the piece, Jean and thought it well written. Can't ask for a better compliment.

Lindsay;

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by my blog and read! I really appreciate it.

Not quite sure what's in store for Leah and David since this was a piece of flash. But who knows what lurks during the next full moon ... could be a howling good time for everyone, or at least those who don't get eaten.

Thanks again,

Patricia/E. A. Irwin

I hope you continue the story somehow next week, or at least at the next full moon
