Her presence was smouldering, †  
and she had an intensity that attracted him like a magnet. †
Before his mind was allowed to wander she sat down next to him, †
her aroma pulling him in like a bluebottle into a pot of honey. †
With words unsaid; their chemistry shaped the silence between them. †
Electricity coursed through the haze and lead to an exchanging of names, †
as those around them melted into the rabble †  
of an uncharacteristically busy weeknight in the west end. †
It was a polite exchange with a palpable, if unreliable, subtext; †
and their nights seemingly deviated soon after. †
She would return to her date †  
while he did the rounds with his mates, †  
occasionally finding each otherís gaze across the balcony. †
The first intimations of trouble; †  
was sharing a smoke and a taxi up the road. †
They swapped details and she hovered in the cold just for a while. †  
And as the car pulled away, he caught his first glimpse of that sadistic smile. †
A final exhale and she disappeared into the night †
Something inside him awoke just then and he hoped, †  
devout in his curiosity, to follow this new plight.
