Response 1: Life



I could hear my heart racing as her car pulled into the drive. Here goes.

Wasn't sure I was ready for this but they tell me I'll feel better once I've done it. Not sure. But it is a big deal and I'm a woman and I don't want to be inhibited forever.
She arrived, flushed and beautiful. An embarrassed smile flickered across her mouth. She asked if I was ready. As ready as I will ever be I said.
She started to undress, turning her back as she pulled off her top. I watched intrigued, as I slipped my sweater down off my shoulder and let it fall to the floor.
She turned. Her head lowered. And I watched as our eyes rested on the body of the other.
A deep sigh and I knew.
I knew I would be fine. I was not alone in my bosomless grief.
