THE NIGHT BEFORE
At rehearsal dinner Daddy beamed. “Welcome to the family, Nathan.”
Nathan’s ice-blue eyes scorched me. “Til death do us part.”
The thick summer breeze did little to cool the screened-in sleeping porch. Nonetheless, Jimmy’s hot breath on my neck gave me chills.
“Nathan will kill you, Jimmy.”
“Don’t matter without you, Lucie.”
Whirring cicadas drowned out my whispered protests. Mutual desire finally had its way and I melted into Jimmy’s ebony arms.
No doubt Mama will swoon and Daddy will swear at the shame I’ve brought.
Miles from them, my beloved’s dark eyes consume me. “Til death do us part.”
