Abyss, this is what it looks like, she thought, her empty eyes staring into the dark, the infinite blackness offering every promise of solace and escape. She leaned forward, against every logical judgement her mind could conjure in those few seconds.
‘Mm this feels good’ she thought as she felt his lips probe hers open, as his fingers loosened her taut neck. They were on his cruiser, the air chilly, and the water frightening
‘But I am engaged, I shouldn’t do this!’ quipped the alter-ego sane voice in her head
‘I’m so glad you came’ he mumbled into her ears, sweeping away the curtain that was her mane away, to nibble into her neck.
‘Everything’s going to be just fine, please don’t be hasty and ruin it all!’ begged her conscience, but she knew otherwise, as she always knew.
‘I never did expect you to come you know. What with all this drama you went ahead and staged last month’ he said, holding her hand to him and looking at the solitaire with contempt
‘He never meant a thing, he never did from the beginning’ her mind yelled back, as she blinked heavy, unshed tears away, thinking back to today when she walked in on him doing it with his secretary on the polished mahogany table in his cabin
‘You do understand nothing’s changed, don’t you?’ he said, suddenly pulling her back, and looking into her eyes with those piercing, smiling eyes
‘You were my last hope! I had thrown everything away for you’ she felt her heart hammer against her chest, ‘I threw my past, my present and my future for you and here I am now- look at me!’
‘We can still do our thing’ he drawled, yet she felt her skin crawl as if a thousand ants were marching on it. ‘The missus read about your engagement and came back to me.. that woman, I tell you, she is such a fool! But it will just be like old times I tell you!’
‘I was a fool to have trusted you’ she bit back the words she wanted to say,’ I was a fool to have trusted all you men, and all that has brought me here’ the mere thought made her involuntarily gasp
‘I’ll be right back’ she told him, stone faced and eerily calm, ’Just be going to the ladies room, we can turn in after that’
‘Anything- anything to get away from this place, all I need is just that, an escape’ she prayed, as she took a deep breath and made up her mind to take the plunge, the decision that had brought her to the yacht in the first place
Abyss, this is what it looks like, she thought, her empty eyes, staring into the dark, the infinite blackness offering every promise of escape and solace. She leaned forward, against every logical judgement her mind could conjure in those few seconds.
PS- This is a style of writing that I came across a long while back by a fellow blogger named Vidhya Iyer. Ever since, had been wanting to write something similar and here it is.
