...I have to have them.
I don't know why.
But I had to do it.
I guess I need adventure....Deep down, I'm a thrill seeker.
He was scared.
He was young.
It was his first time.
I was a strange woman.
It was a strange room.
I looked him straight in the eye and spoke softly, "It's alright. I won't harm you. I know how to make you calm."
He seemed to ease a bit.
I continued, "Just trust me. It's for the best."
I reached for his face.
It was a sweet face with big brown eyes.
I promised to be gentle.
I ran my hand under his chin and around to his ear....he tensed.
"It's okay, This isn't my first rodeo."
I reached out with my other hand and put it over his shoulder.
I could feel his tension ease away as I wrapped my arms around him.
I heard a voice from behind the door.
"Have you got ahold of that dog yet? I don't want bit!"
