Sound the Alarm
I met Ben on a fabulous summer afternoon, near the pond in Raven Park. The sun was shining at its brightest, making the water shimmer like a thousand diamonds. It was a perfect day. I fed bread crumbs to pigeons while sitting on my favourite bench, the closest bench to the ice cream vendor. It was at this bench where he first laid eyes on me. Something inside me warned my legs to walk away, but it was too late.
“Hey there,” he said in that sexy, raspy voice of his.
I stared at him lovingly before I said a word. He wore a gold Rolex on his right wrist, which he never took off even in the shower. After his greeting, he sat next to me on the rickety bench and stretched his arms along the top of it. Next, he smiled a crooked smile, probably hoping I would say something.
After much deliberation I snapped back to reality and choked out the words, “Well, hi.” Normally, I wasn’t shy around men, or anyone for that matter! Unfortunately, this man had me quivering at the knees and melting in his presence. Even now, I can’t explain how he made me feel or why I ever felt anything for him. It’ll remain a mystery. Awkwardly, I smiled, turned away from him, and prayed that he didn’t see me blush.
“I’m Ben, Ben Callahan. You are?” I wanted to pull myself together and have an intelligent conversation, but his effect on me was intense. Trying to sound like I wasn’t a school girl with a major crush was impossible. Technically, I was, considering I was fresh out of high school and too naïve to know anything. Basically, I was a child to him, which was exactly what he needed. I was a child who he could manipulate to do everything for him. The age difference was only a few years, but it was enough for him to make me a slave.
