We walk in silence for a bit as he leads the way to wherever it is that he wants to take me. Then he stops.
“Close your eyes,” he says.
“Do you trust me?”
I sigh, we both know this has already been established, so I close my eyes.
I feel material wrap around my hand again, followed by the strength of his hand in mine as he leads me further.
“Keep your eyes closed,” he says after we’ve gone a short distance. Then I feel him pick me up and I let out a small squeal.
“No peeking,” he warns. I can hear the smile in his voice and I chuckle.
With my eyes closed I’m very aware of his presence as my other senses sharpen – his physical strength, his scent, the sound of his heartbeat, the rhythm of his breathing. It’s somewhat unsettling, very distracting and causes all kinds of physical reactions in my body.
