Pen and I are lounging under a big white umbrella. I am curled up with my head on his chest. His heartbeat is steady and slow, his breathing shallow. He is asleep. I pinch his arm playfully. “You’re going to miss it.” He takes a deep breath and chuckles. “I’m awake. And I’ve seen my share of sunsets.” I turn my head and rest my chin on his chest. His eyes are still closed. “You’re a grouch, you know that?” He opens one eye and stares at me. “You know I’m going to find you. You don’t need to do this.” My throat burns with emotion. “Yes, I do. You might not make it in time.” Both his eyes open and stare blankly up at the umbrella. He is angry. His jaw clenches and his nostrils flare. “It’s almost time.” I crawl up and lie down, straddling him. My blonde hair makes a curtain around us. He looks sad as he reaches up and holds my face. “I don’t know how to say goodbye to you.” I smile. The sun is glowing in the horizon. Its resting place comes alive with color. I see it all happen in the reflection in his eyes. “Yes, you do.” I press my lips against his, urgently stealing every taste of him. I pull his lip through my teeth, and he groans loudly. The sound is erotic. Suddenly his hand is on the back of my head, pulling me roughly against him. His lips are not gentle anymore. They are rough and scaly, like a snake. He is hurting me. I push hard against his chest, only to realize my hands are bound. I start to cry as the sun descends into its salty grave.
