SACRED FIRES by Catherine Greenfeder

August 1 – September 20
Bold, heated, and wanton, she spread for him, taking in the full hard thrust.

Once more she found herself in the jungle, stretched beneath a canopy of stars, rising like the moon. Opened and feeling the force of her man in each vibrant move. “Yes, Mazatl, oh, yes.”

A thousand stars exploded inside of her. They rocked in unison. She purred her satiation.

Miguel’s deep moan echoed in the stillness. Nothing, absolutely nothing could come between them.

Telefono!” a shrill voice shouted from a distance. “Miguel! La policia!”

“Damn!” The world could wait another moment. He looked at Casey and held her awhile longer “Whoever it is, I can call back.”

“But, it’s the police.” She moved away, shivering as she snatched for her clothing. “Please, it might be important and ...”

He touched her lips a moment with one hand as his other held her by his side. “Are you afraid of getting caught?”

“It’s not proper.”

“You are an old fashioned girl.” They dressed in the shadows.

“Am I all right?” She fidgeted with her buttons, her hair, and her swollen lips in an effort to regain her composure.

“You’re more than all right,” he growled against her shoulder. “Come on, mi amor. Let’s face the music” He paused a moment as if in thought. “Casey, back there,” he motioned to the garden. “You called me by a different name.”

“I did?”

“Yes, Mazatl, is he an old boyfriend?”

“No, I don’t know what I said.”

  1. I can't believe she'd be thinking of someone else, I wouldn't be!

  2. Wow, so much pathos in this excerpt! I was all "Uh-Oh!" when I read that last bit. :-)
