Eyes closed. Visions, like snapshots, tattooed the inside of her eyelids. Her heart pounded like a drum, blood rushing to her ears. All senses slowly paralyzed as the snapshots began to appear.

Parted lips. Snapshot.
Thighs. Strong, muscular thighs. Snapshot. Breathe in and out, Jillian Stone. Pull yourself together.
Pectoral muscles. Snapshot. No doubt about it. It was going to happen soon.

The burning bile slowly moved back down her esophagus, but the heat that encased her body still consumed her. She took two very slow and deep breaths and looked up at the mirror.
