As children, they were inseparable. They ran through the fields, swam in the creek, and built forts in the woods. They were each other’s closest confidante and most loyal friend. But as they grew older, their once innocent friendship began to take on a new dimension.
It started with a stolen kiss. Just a quick peck on the lips during a game of Truth or Dare. But that one innocent act sparked something inside both of them. Suddenly they found themselves imagining what it would be like to do more than just kiss. The temptation was overwhelming, but they knew it was wrong. Siblings simply weren’t supposed to have those kinds of desires for each other.
For years they fought against the feelings that continued to grow within them. They dated other people, tried to keep their distance, but nothing could shake the desire that burned inside them. Eventually, they gave in to the temptation, and it was like a floodgate had been opened. They couldn’t get enough of each other. Every touch and every kiss felt like a forbidden thrill.
Their secret rendezvous were exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. They knew that if anyone found out, it would be catastrophic. But the risk only made the reward that much sweeter. They started taking more and more risks, pushing the limits of what they knew was right and allowed.
The closer they got, the harder it became to keep their secret. They knew they couldn’t keep it up forever, but they couldn’t stop themselves either. The temptation was too great. Eventually, they were caught. Their family was completely torn aside by the revelation. It was a taboo that could never be forgiven.
But even in the face of such pain and loss, they couldn’t completely shake their forbidden desires for each other. The temptation was still there, lurking in the background. They knew they could never act on it again, but they also knew they would never truly be free of it either. The forbidden temptations of siblings would at all times hold a power over them, no matter how hard they tried to withstand.
