Behind The Mask: Not Included

I wrote something that I didn’t include in my book Behind The Mask. Obviously it was something I was thinking about, maybe even subconsciously. But it was there in my mind and I had to write it out. I didn’t include it in my book, but I will share it with all of you tonight. This is a fiction piece I wrote.

“The Last Dance by Helene Moore

Diana knew this would be an extraordinary night. She took a leisurely bath, filling the tub with scented oils. Vanilla and sweet almond oil mixed with lavender surrounded her with lazy luxury. It had been a long time since she felt so calm.

Lying back in the tub she went over the plans for the coming evening. Satisfied, she stepped out of the tub. Diana knew she was ready. It was time.

She dried and powdered her body with silken scent, then threw a short silk shirt over her naked body. She didn’t tie it; she let it flap around her as she walked across the soft carpet into the bedroom.

There on the bed was her husband, her best friend and lover for 40 wonderful year. Diana climbed into the bed. Tenderly she touched Stuart’s face. His eyes blinked once, she nodded in response. Reaching up she kissed his eyelids, her hands moving down his still body.

She rubbed her breasts along his stomach and reached downward and felt his erection. She looked deep into his eyes and he blinked at her, this time very slowly.

One last dance. Bittersweet. Loving and sensual. One last dance, she’d make it beautiful for both of them. After, when her heartbeat returned to normal, she looked again into Stu’s eyes. He blinked. It was time.

Diana lifted the silken pillow, gently placing it over her beloved’s face. Please God let it be quick.

She lay across his heart, holding the pillow tight. His agony was over. She let her tears drop onto his chest.

The last dance was finished.”

Because this was a fiction piece I wrote, I did not include it in the book. The book was entirely true journal entries.
