Valencia was high on the narcotic of the atmosphere she had created. S could feel the energy radiating off of her—this was Val’s element, wholly and completely. It was as though the lush elegance of her entire underground fortress, with its surreal gardens and dens of pleasure and realms of fantasy were a living machine transmuting the longing, pain, suffering, shame, all into the ecstatic throes of orgasm, complete union—as though this monolith of collective exploration and pursuit synthesized purpose through her entire being. The vibrations hummed with light. S sensed V was a type of magnifying glass, harnessing the awesome power of the sun and channeling it through her with precision; there would certainly be fires tonight.
The current moving among the three of them was already palpable. In this moment S felt the full spectrum of her capabilities. As her thought process moved through her, she knew her heartbeat—full and wet, like eyes filled with tears, a blink from spilling across skin.
At first it was overwhelming—too raw, too tender, the pulse too thick in her ears, that threat of overflow, the vibrations seeming to increase in frequency until S thought she must have drunk too much, must be spiking into panic. S turned her head from side to side. Then she caught hold of some irregularity, some distinction that helped her realize this was not her pulse spiraling out of control. She was sensing three hearts pumping vital blood and oxygen through three separate bodies. Hers, Val’s, and of course his. Once S could recognize it for what it was, she felt herself sigh. On the exhale anything unnecessary left her thought process. She was available. Ready.
They turned as one and exited quietly through an entryway that had been minutes before obscured by a large hanging black velvet curtain. Valencia’s form seemed to meld with the inky black, except for her pale skin and her shocking firey hair. The party would not miss them. As S paused before ducking behind the curtain, she couldn’t help but smile at the bliss radiating through the atmosphere. Gods, all of them.
