mapplethorpFinally, when she was sure he had gone as he said, she slowly opened her eyes. This time Grace saw herself.

Floating above her, her image in the mirror on the ceiling, her cheeks flush from the orgasm, a drawn snake twirling around her form. The wax splotches creating the effect of scales in relief. He had captured it perfectly, imbued it with life.

The snake seemed to pulsate as she breathed. It slithered up her arm towards the apple. Her hands felt wet, slightly sticky – she had sunk her nails into the apple flesh as she came.

She was Eve in the Garden of Temptation.
