“It’s like the time Sara and I snuck into the nature sanctuary in Lincoln Park and went at it in the mossy twilight, both of us bare as the day we were born. There was no one around, but there could have been, see? Some evening bird watcher might have caught the motion as she threw her head back; might have raised his binoculars; might have framed them on the softness of her naked body.
That’s what this is like. Exhibitionism without risk. No one will hear me.
Of course, they say God is always watching, but circumstances being what they are, I’m guessing not.”
A short story from the author of THE BLADE ITSELF and GOOD PEOPLE.
