lord ha'mercy.that ending was such a surprise I actually took my hand off my cock and said 'oh!'because, just like Rho, I hadn't let go. not fully. not until that moment.the last one.in the beginning, when the sneaking suspicion bloomed in me that this was not unfolding as it appeared—I didn't let go.in the middle, watching the slippage of boundaries, remembering who the author was, and how often she'd fooled me in the past only to give me something I didn't even know I'd wanted—I didn't let go.toward the end? when I was muttering out loud as I slid my pajamas down for a good wank, and one unutterably scandalous thought stilled my hand on my cock:"holy shit. is this... is this actually a romance?"I didn't let go.but Rho did. he finally let go.I followed him.and the answer to my question was even more delicious than I had supposed.recommended.
