They sat gazing at each other. The light of their computer screens illuminated their faces in the dark.He was seated in his home office she could see sports memorabilia and a huge foam finger hanging on his wall.Her room seemed neat and had a huge glitter LOVE & PEACE on the background…The specks of glitter glinted off the reflected light from the only light source.
They sighed together and couldn’t contain their desire for each other…If this was the real world they would just devour each other with their passion.
” I love you” he said,
“I love you too….you need to sleep, it’s getting late” she said
” I don’t think I can sleep tonight…Kiss me” he said
She blushed and in the light of the screen her face turned a deep mauve.
” Good night ” she said ” I’ve got school tomorrow”
“Good night then,” he said trying to hide his disappointment, ” …see you in class.”
She shut down her computer removed her glasses and dropped her dentures into a glass of water, ate her nightly medicines and went to sleep.
