Definition of Desire
by Jane Davitt

“If I find you canoodling in here again, I'll be most displeased.”

“We weren't! We kept our clothes on, and if noodles stay covered, not that  Xander's – bits – are noodle-like, but if they stay in the can -”

“And I move from annoyed to nauseated.”

“What does it mean, anyway? I could look it up? If it's naughty and you don't want to tell me...”

“It's a foolish lover fondling his beloved. Perhaps stroking her hair – like this...”


“Or kissing the hollow of her throat – there. And now you know.”

“Why did you -?”

“Foolish – remember? And jealous. Goodnight.”
