Gandalfs apprentice's 2006 Birthday Gifts

5. Weakness - by Vilwarin

My hand wanders up and down your body, feeling unfamiliar terrain.

The wrong body

I know it and yet I am here. Nobody must know of this, of my moment of weakness.

 Forbidden!

What would they say if they knew?

Shameful, lie-between!

I am betrothed to the woman I love, you are married, but still... I lie with you and know not how this came to be.

Doubly shameful, he is a man!

And where now is honour?

I sit up and pull the blankets around myself. My eyes lock with yours and a wordless understanding passes between us not a word.
