A Single Night of Passion

by Jeremy C. Kester

The taste of bourbon weighed heavy on her breath. We kissed furiously parked in the dark lot, and I could almost get drunk off of the smell alone if the writhing movements of her body weren’t enough. This moment I have been waiting for since seeing her dance across from me years ago. I wished that this could be more than a drunken escapade during a careless evening. The windows began to fog heavy. Outside, the world began to disappear, just as my friendship with her will when the sun later breaks through.
