A quiet but indomitable voice behind me said I believe this is my dance. It was him. I could feel his presence. The warmth of him seeped into my back and I quivered all over like spring leaves in a warm breeze.
Famous Quotes from Colleen Houck
Pulling the chair out for me he invited me to sit. I stood there wondering if I could sprint for the nearest exit. Stupid strappy shoes Id never make it. He leaned in close and whispered in my ear I know what youre thinking and Im not going to let you escape again.

I could still feel the ghost of him hovering in the quiet dark recess of my heart. It was as if he was just waiting for me to be lonely or to let my guard down so that he could surface and fill my mind again with thoughts of him.
He kissed me wildly overwhelming me like a giant wave rushing to shore. I was soon lost in the turbulent grasp of his embrace and yetI knew I was safe. His wild kiss drove me pushed me asked me questions I was unwilling to consider. But I was cherished by this dark Poseidon and though he had the power to crush me utterly to drown me in the purple depths of his wake he held me aloft separate. His passionate kiss changed. It gentled and soothed and entreated. Together we drifted towards a safe harbor. The god of the sea set me down securely on a sandy beach and steadied me as I trembled. Effervescent tingles shot through my limbs delighting me with surges of sparkling sensation like sandy toes tickled by bubbly waves. Finally the waves moved away and I felt my Poseidon watching me from a distance. We looked at each other knowing we were forever changed by the experience. We both knew that I would always belong to the sea and that I would never be able to part from it and be whole again.

Love is not a consequence. Love is not a choice. Love is a thirst. A need as vital to the soul as water is to the body. Love is a precious draught that not only soothes a parched throat but it vitalizes a man. It fortifies him enough that he is willing to slay dragons for the woman who offers it. Take that draught of love from me and I will shrivel to dust. To take it from a man dying of thirst and give it to another whilst he watches is a cruelty I never thought you capable of.

He then put both hands on the door on either side of my head and leaned in close pinning me against it. I trembled like a downy rabbit caught in the clutches of a wolf. The wolf came closer. He bent his head and began nuzzling my cheek. The problem wasI wanted the wolf to devour me.
