They lay there both drenched in sweat, Sarah smiled exhilarated, she gazed into Anthony’s eyes and for a moment there she saw something in his eyes that threw her off. She stopped for a moment and looked again to see that she wasn’t imagining what she just saw. Sarah arose from the bed and went to the bathroom.
“Hurry up! We can go one more round.” Anthony called out cheekily.
Sarah hopped into the shower and let the water flow in full force. She lathered up and let the water flow over her body. Her mind was racing, darting from one end to another, she began to cry. Why was she crying? It didn’t make sense, she loved her man, she was in a great relationship. She had just made love to the man of her dreams and now she just felt heavy. What was going on here? Sarah stood there; she closed her eyes and wished everything away.
“Babe! Babe! Babe!” Anthony knocked on the door disrupting her thoughts. “You OK in there? It’s been 40 minutes.”
“I will be out in a few”, Sarah said as she turned up the shower again, she just stood there enjoying the water and then 10 minutes later turned off the shower, and walked out. She walked to the sink and whipped out her brush and paste and brushed her teeth for almost 5 minutes. She wrapped that up, opened the cabinet and whipped out her dental floss and flossed away.
The bathroom door opened and the smell of cocoa butter shower gel emerged with a squeaky clean Sarah. Anthony was seated on the bed with his boxer shorts, head hung down between his spread legs, he lifted his face and worry was spelt all over his countenance. “Honey, did I do something wrong?”
Sarah shook her head. “You want to talk about it?” Anthony tried to push a response. Sarah stood and stared into Anthony’s searching eyes and shook her head once again and a tear streamed down her face. She picked up her lotion and some clothes from the wardrobe and went straight into the bathroom. Ten minutes later smelling of vanilla and chocolate, Sarah emerged garbed in sweat pants and matching hoodie.
“Don’t wait up for me, I will be back soon.” She said as she headed for the bedroom door.
Anthony leapt from the bed and straight into her arms. “Baby if I did something wrong; tell me, don’t go alone, let me go with you, it’s 3 in the morning. It’s not safe.”
Sarah broke down in his arms and Anthony carried her to the bed. “Talk to me Sarah, I am here.” She couldn’t muster a word. They sat there; Sarah in Anthony’s arms crying helplessly. Anthony baffled and frustrated that he had no clue what was going on. Sarah‘s tears were equally out of frustration, she didn’t know what was going on either. Anthony rocked Sarah in his arms till they both eventually fell asleep an hour later.
