"That was the most humiliating sexual experience of my entire life." She whispered. "Perhaps it was the worst I've ever had. The most embarrassing part of all this is how much you saw of me...the way you looked at me with such disdain and disgust. How you described me...how you spoke to me...how you treated me. Like I was a piece of meat. I don't think I have ever been made to feel that way before, by anyone."
She brought her knees up and then pressed her fingers to her lips, staring at the way Nim slithered about the leg of a display cabinet.
"You told me that that was you, that this entire time I have only been seeing a portion, that you are complete with the magic. The more I think about it..." She trailed off.
The more she thought...the more she thought.
She had her back to him, her voice somewhat emotionless. "Things have not been right with us for a very long time. Everything feels like a personal attack now, even if it isn't. But these games of who has power over who, who can spite the other. Just simple things like taking Hera away was no longer a reasonable adjustment, but used to hurt me. But then I am in the same breath saying how I am purposely attempting to remove my love for you..."
She was silent for another moment, glancing at the potion that was discarded to the side. The fact that he had even offered to do that made it very clear now.
"I can't get it out of my head, Nathan. I should never have even suggested such a ridiculous thing. I underestimated it's power...I thought you would just be rougher, more direct, firmer, more passionate. You didn't even kiss me...I was nothing..." She shook her head, clearing her throat as she moved to get off the bed.
"Well, it's over now. Nothing we can do. What's done is done, and hopefully it worked for Soren."
