I vaguely heard the door open and someone burst in. “Hey, Katie! Oh, shit!”
“Bing, dammit!” Li hopped up, fists clenched, pants open, boxers half down.
“Sorry, dude. Didn’t know you were here. I’m so sorry.” He backed out the door.
The mood was broken. The lust I’d felt moments ago had diminished to a hot glow deep inside.
“I’m sorry,” Li said softly, hanging his head. “I was taking advantage of the fact we’re both drunk. And you’re in a dark place, Katie.”
I took his hand, tugging on him to sit once more. “Yes, it’s dark here, but you know what? There’s this blazing bright light over there.” I pointed toward the far corner of the room. “It seems kinda far away right now, but when you kissed me, it got closer.” I held my fingers an inch or so apart. “Little bit.”
