Excerpt from Backstage Passion:Bullet
Jade C. Jamison
I let out the breath I’d been
holding in as Ethan rolled onto the bed.
I just lay there, concentrating on
my breathing, focusing on relaxing.He
removed his condom and then rolled on his side to face me, so I rolled on my
side as well.That felt like fresh hell, but I tried not to let it show on my
And the look on his face was rare
and…beautiful.He looked happy, and that wasn’t a typical look
for Ethan.He looked peaceful.He stroked my hair with his hand.“You okay?”
I nodded.The way he was looking at me made everything
okay.I smiled at him, letting him know
I was fine.“Yeah.Had to be done, right?”
He grinned.“No, not really.You could’ve decided to become a nun.They don’t have to do this, you know.”
I smiled again, sliding my arm
under the pillow.“I think in the long
run that’d be more painful.”
I shrugged my shoulders.I didn’t want to tell him what I was
thinking.But I knew now.I’d been experiencing some kind of awakening,
and for all I knew, all girls went through it, but maybe I was a late
bloomer.Whatever the case, there was a
sexual creature inside me that had been trapped, and once she’d discovered
there was an escape, she would have pushed to get out.I knew sex wouldn’t ever hurt like tonight
again.I knew there was some sort of
sensual nirvana waiting for me, some revelation I had yet to discover.Inside, I realized that.And to deny that to myself my entire life
would have hurt far worse than the temporary pain I’d endured to pass into womanhood.And I wasn’t kidding myself either.I knew I’d be hurting all night long, but it
would soon pass.I looked in Ethan’s
green eyes, softer than I’d ever seen them before, and maybe that was due to
the shitty lighting in the motel room, but he seemed open and vulnerable then.Part of me wanted to tell him all my
thoughts, but I too felt too exposed.And after all we’d been through, another part of me felt like I couldn’t
fully trust him.Oh, I wanted to.After all, I’d trusted him with one of the
most sacred parts of myself that night.But I wasn’t ready to tell him of my growing self-awareness, of my
awakening identity.I didn’t know that I
wanted to tell anyone, because I didn’t fully understand it yet.My smile was shy.“I dunno.Could you imagine spending your whole life not having sex?”
He stroked my hair again. “Yeah, but my
first time was nothing like that.”He
got closer and kissed me on the forehead.
He rested his hand on my neck.There was something in his eyes, but I just
couldn’t read it.What the hell was he
thinking?“I love you, Val.”
Oh.Oh, wow.Yeah, I loved him back, but for him to say it…and to say it first.Holy crap.Everything I’d ever heard about dysfunctional relationships (which I’d
suspected we had) had made me believe I’d be the only one to ever say it, to
ever really feel it.But there it
was.He’d said it, and it took my breath
away.I don’t know that I was able to
smile because I was so overwhelmed.But
I said it back.“I love you too,
Ethan.”And then, seeing how his eyes
lit up, I did smile.
He pulled me closer then, holding
me in his arms, and after a while, I heard his breathing grow quiet but
rhythmic.His chest rose and fell slowly
at the same intervals, and I knew he’d gone to sleep.I shifted, but just a little, because every
motion below my waist reminded me of the pain that was still with me.I wished he was still awake, because I wanted
him, needed him.I wanted to talk to
him, but then I realized I also just needed time for me.
I was overwhelmed with so many
emotions, the first of which was my feelings of love for this man that had
intensified.Before, yes, I had felt
love for Ethan, but nothing like this.It was multiplied now and heavy, stretching into the deep caverns of my
soul.I wasn’t sure how to process it.
And then I was also almost giddy
that I had just made a passage.I was no
longer a girl.Truly, I’d been moving to
womanhood already.I’d been responsible
for my own care for more than a year, what with living on my own at school, but
somehow losing my virginity not only symbolized that process but affirmed it.
Lying there thinking about that, I
then thought about my dad of all people.I was no longer daddy’s little girl.I was no longer his precious pearl, and he could no longer protect me
from the world, from the beauty and wonder nor from the pain and torment.I wondered what he and my mom would think if
they knew.I knew from the experiences
over the past summer that they trusted me.Whether that was due to realizing that they had to let go and let me
make my own mistakes or if they just thought I was a young woman of incredible
self-restraint, I didn’t know.
There was no clock in that hotel
room, so I had no idea how long I lay there.Ethan rolled over after a long while, leaving me alone with my
thoughts.Between them and the pain, I
lay awake until what I was sure was early morning…all by myself.
