He started like he meant to go on.

Grabbing the front of my hair he pushed my head back. Firm but slow. In control. Dominating, but respectful. And only an inch, so my open mouth was at a better angle and I was looking where his eyes should be.

It was hard to see them in the greys of the forest and the silhouette of inky black above. I could make out his shape. His legs and his torso. His shoulders. Darker where his clothes were, a few hues lighter where his skin was. I could see his features. His mouth, his nose, his ears. I could hear his breath. Smell his scent.

But it was too dark to see his eyes.

Then they gleamed. Twinkled like far off stars. Reflected by a sudden burst of moonlight that must have escaped from the long, low autumn clouds I’d seen creeping into the sky before the sun had gone down. The silver filtered through thousands of outstretched branches in faint rays, strong enough to illuminate us in the darkness.


He smiled. So did I.

‘Shut your eyes,’ he said.


‘Do as I say.’

I did as I was told. My lids descended and my other senses took over.
