As the youngest daughter in a sprawling Southern family, Alice had all the time felt like an outsider. She spent most of her childhood wandering the plantation gardens, dreaming of a life beyond the stifling walls of her father’s mansion. But when she turned sixteen, everything changed.
On a hot summer night, Alice found herself alone in the library with her brother, John. They had all the time been close, but that night something shifted. As they talked, Alice noticed the way John’s eyes lingered on her lips, the way his hand brushed against hers when he passed her a book.
She tried to ignore the sensations that were building inside her, to tell herself that it was all in her head. But as the night wore on, it became harder and harder to withstand John’s seductive gaze.
Finally, just as the clock struck midnight, he leaned in and kissed her. At first, Alice pulled away, horrified by the idea of incestuous desire. But then John whispered in her ear, telling her how much he had all the time wanted her, how he had been dreaming of this moment for years.
In the heat of passion, Alice forgot all her fears. She wrapped her arms around her brother’s neck, pulling him closer. As they kissed, she felt his hands exploring her body, caressing her breasts, sliding down to her hips.
For the first time in her life, Alice knew what it was like to feel desired. She felt a wild, forbidden thrill running through her veins. As John led her to the floor, she felt her heart pounding with excitement.
The sex was wild and reckless, driven by a hunger they couldn’t ignore. In the flickering light of the candles, Alice and John’s bodies entwined, moving in a frenzy of lust.
Afterwards, Alice felt both exhilarated and terrified. She knew that she could never have a ordinary life now, that she would all the time be tormented by the unholy love that consumed her. But as she lay in John’s arms, listening to his gentle breathing, she realized that she didn’t care. For the first time in her life, she felt like she belonged. And she knew that she would never let go of that feeling, no matter what the consequences.
