Two Hearts

Sophia and Dylan share some moments of intimacy together in a gallery full of people and then alone together at last…


We held a reception at the gallery last night, a very cool abstract photography show. As always, I invited my friends and to my surprise Dylan showed up. I was so happy to see him, there were so many people yet I could sense his presence around me. We chatted only for some brief moments, but the way he looked at me and smiled told me everything I needed to know. I felt that just like me he was trying to figure this whole thing out, the attraction between us too strong to ignore. There is something in the timbre of his voice that causes a wave of excitement to wash over me and makes my whole body tingle. It happens every single time and now that I was relaxed after a glass of wine, I could feel it even more. I kept mingling with people, playing hostess, smiling and enjoying small talk, but it was the outer “me” doing all that on autopilot, while the innermost “me” lingered in his orbit, mesmerized. It wasn’t until almost closing time when our eyes met again. My fiancé and our group of friends were headed to the bar next door, and I told them I would do a quick clean up, lock the gallery and join them shortly. Dylan asked matter of factly if I needed some help, and I innocently replied that he could stick around if he really wanted to. Everyone was eager to get another drink, so they headed out without further hesitation.
