The whole drive home I told myself I would stay away from Annie.
That seeing my brother had made me raw. Too raw.
Unfit for her.
I walked directly from my car to my trailer. I even kicked off my shoes. But when I went to charge my phone, I could not resist looking at the picture she’d sent.
And looking at it, her pale flesh, her hands between her legs, only made me worse.
More . . . dangerous.
But in the end, even while I was telling myself not to, I grabbed two condoms from the stash in the bathroom and walked straight to her trailer door. In the darkest part of the night. The darkest thoughts running through my head.
You’re gonna scare her, I told myself. Knocks on the door in the middle of the night never bring good news.
Well, I’m not fucking good news, am I?
I knocked and waited, my hands braced on the cool metal of her RV. I heard a small thump and the sound of her padding to the door, and I hung my head.
Resigned to this dark thing.
The door opened and there she was, rumpled and sweet. Her hair messy, her eyes barely open.
“Open the door, Annie.”
Something in my voice, some command, some need I was barely keeping in line, must have penetrated and her eyes opened wide. Her mouth, those sweet lips, opened, revealing the wet edge of her tongue. The shine of her teeth.
Fuck. That mouth . . .
“What are you going to do, Dylan?” she breathed back at me. A challenge. She was not scared and she was not unaware.
“I’m going to fuck you.”
Her pale hand, hazy through the screen, reached forward and popped open the door. I threw it open and then slammed it shut behind me once I was inside. Both doors, until it was just us in this trailer.
