Once upon a time, as far away from the royal castle as a man could throw a bucketful of dung, in a wretched hovel, there lived a couple who were so poor that their only clothes were the ones they found least edible. As the new princess was visited by seven fairies, their new daughter was visited by seven creditors.
He only kissed her once and it wasn’t prepared or planned or even voluntarily. It just happened. He didn’t have a choice. He couldn’t do anything about it.
She just looked so beautiful, so desirable in her tight leggings, her hair up in a bun so that her whole face was presented to him and showed him what real, natural beauty looked like. Sometimes her tee glided from her shoulder when they danced and those short glances at exposed skin that not everybody got to see… it killed him. It created cravings in him that weren’t appropriate or permitted. And he didn’t believe he’d ever get used to the flutter in his stomach, to the shocks of adrenaline when she touched him, to the short-windedness when their faces were only inches apart.
But he could keep it together. He was a master in hiding his pain, in pretending he only saw a little sister in the young woman he wanted so badly that he sometimes felt the need to break a bowling ball so he could cope with the anger of not having her. He stayed calm and reasonable, didn’t touch her if it wasn’t necessary, didn’t look at her if it wasn’t necessary, didn’t breathe if it wasn’t necessary. Until week 7.
