Todd backed her against a tree on the deserted walkway. Linda couldn’t move back; and if she moved forward, well…Todd’s muscular body blocked the way.
They stood in the tree’s cool shade, colorful leaves falling around them; each one afraid to make the first move. Todd moved closer, bent his head, and kissed her.

He took total control of her mind and body. It felt good but scary at the same time. Linda wasn’t sure she was ready to relinquish her freedom.
