THE SECOND INNING
by Vita Perez
“Why did you come?”
“I wanted to see you.” I said softly. His response was a tilt of his head, as he rested his chin on the top of his childhood baseball bat which he held between his legs. The light from the afternoon sun cut through the room, striking him across his right side. His pose gave an almost childlike quality, but the mass of muscle and strength in his build and the look of heartache etched across his face belied any pretense of youth. He wore a crisp white ribbed tank and cotton shorts and to me, he was a vision of perfection. His months at the training camp had enhanced his tan. That together with the glow of the setting sun coming in through the window, illuminating his hazel eyes, gave him a gilded quality that took my breath away.
I’d dreamt of nothing but him since I’d walked out of this apartment 3 months ago. I swore to myself I’d done it relieve him of any obligation he’d feel to me. I wasn’t going to be the thing holding him back. But I knew now, as I stood before him, I’d done it to try and protect myself. I was helplessly and desperately in love with him. The idea of him saying he was leaving me was too much for me to bear, so I tried to beat him to it. And now I stood hoping my poker face would hold, because if he told me to go, I knew I would shatter where I stood. His eyes traveled the length of my body from head to toe. I leaned back against the door unsure if my legs would hold me and let out a shaky breath that I’d been holding.♥
