BN Prose: Behind The Glass by Ethan Regal

Seize the gasoline whereas I carry the sunshine
Humorous how horrible concepts really feel so proper
The flames rose up, I assumed it will present me the best way
The flames stored me heat, a lot warmth I acquired burnt
My buddies warned me to remain away
I stated I’d however the coronary heart desires what the guts desires

He appeared like the right man, tall and charming. One thing about him made my coronary heart lose management. His kisses despatched me into one other world. His contact stuffed me with ecstasy.

He stated he would by no means harm me, however there he was, tugging my legs whereas I slid to the ground. My fingers have been tied behind my again. The screams stuffed my throat, discovering no launch by my duct-taped lips. Tears streamed down my face. He seemed forward. I attempted to kick him however I couldn’t. I swung my leg, again and again, however I stored lacking.

“Don’t make me knock you out once more,” he stated, wanting over his shoulder at me. I had no concept the place we have been heading. I had no selection however to comply with him. I couldn’t wiggle myself away.

We got here to a halt. I heard him say, “I would like one other one.”

A wierd male voice requested, “What’s unsuitable together with her?”

“She’s all the time centered on work. No matter I felt for her is gone. I don’t see a future together with her. I would like one other one. One that may prepare dinner, ideally,” he stated.

I used to be lifted off the bottom and set on the counter. The previous man behind the counter stared at me together with his large brown eyes. He motioned away.

Behind the counter have been ladies standing behind glasses. Every lady was trapped in a glass field. Eyes closed, lips shut. Some wore attire, some wore pants; every lady had her personal sense of favor. Every lady had her personal baggage. All of us believed love a objective. Blame the telly, blame the books.

“Do you want this one?” requested the previous man.

“She’s fairly,” stated my lover.

“Her title is Bianca. She loves cooking. She may be very submissive. Looks like what you need,” stated the previous man, averting to say her flaws.

“Excellent. Perhaps another person will discover this one interesting, however she’s a handful.”

I used to be a handful. When he held me in his arms and confessed his love, was I a handful then? I used to be there for him when he wanted somebody to speak to. I beloved him like nobody ever had. Now he was bored of me, known as me a handful.

The previous man dragged me into my glass field. He set me up. Rigorously, I watched as he grabbed the opposite lady and handed her over to my lover. I watched as my lover stared at her together with his eyes flickering of affection. Touching her just like the moments we shared collectively meant nothing. Hand in hand, the 2 of them walked into the space.

Contained in the glass field, we waited. Staring on the merciless world, awaiting our lover. There was somebody on the market who would love us. Somebody on the market who would deal with us how we needed to be handled.

We stood there staring into oblivion. Seconds elapsed, then minutes, then hours, then days, weeks, months, years.

A few of us behind the glass found that, on this merciless world we breathe in, we didn’t want one man to select us up. We didn’t want a person to make us comfortable. Our notion of affection was the reflection staring again at us.

We didn’t want somebody to name us fairly. We didn’t want somebody to caress our pores and skin. Empowering, possibly, however we discovered that irrespective of how onerous we tried, the world would all the time put us in a field.
