Rosario wasn't looking for love, just another fling. When he replied to an online posting, it would forever change his life, and of those he loved. When he first met Lorenzo in person, he thought he couldn't be attracted to him, but his voice is mesmerizing. Rosario felt himself falling in love with Lorenzo, something he had never experienced before in his life of 47 years. Will it end being his best dream, or worst nightmare?
“Ciao Lorenzo. I’m glad you liked my email, and you read it very carefully. I didn’t want to bore you but I think in the end I managed not to. What does it mean to be Libertine? It means that I’ve never had strong sentimental ties with either a man or a woman. It means that if people start telling me to do certain things, I get uneasy. It means that I won’t be pigeon-holed. It means that I want to be free to think and react the way I want, that I want to be free to be wrong or to guess somethings. When sometimes I go out with my friends, I know for certain that they’ll choose some kind of terrible film, I’m very democratic so I would have to go with the majority-so often I go alone to the cinema! What does it mean to describe myself as a ‘lover’? See the previous answer. That is to say, not having ever had a serious relationship, my encounters were always of the third kind. I have no problems with roles in relationships, nor problems with what to do. Only one thing, I don’t like anal, not saying I haven’t done it in the past, I just don’t enjoy it that much. It’s not a question of male pride, some do it, that is, they take it, the important thing is that at the end of the day I’m not the gay one. I don’t like because it hurts, both for who’s giving and who’s receiving. I’m confiding intimate things to you here...things which are confided only to intimates, and we aren’t that yet. I hope we will be. I’d like to know you better too! Straight away I liked your personality most about you (for the little that I’ve known you!), your toned body and your...culture, and the fact that you seem to be very masculine. Fruitcakes and fairies are boring…From when I first heard your voice I loved it’s strong, hot, slightly authoritarian tone; a voice that inspires confidence. We can meet again any time you want, even before Sunday, when I usually go to the beach. Bye for now. Rosario.”
“Hey Rosario, don’t take it like that. I didn’t want to offend you, when I said libertine I meant that you haven't had a stable relationship...you’re happy with what comes your way, but that’s not meant in a bad way. It’s one way to live your sexual sphere. And with regards to anal sex, personally I've neither penetrated nor been penetrated. The idea does excite me though! Who knows then, on what the sexual relationship is based...oral? I suppose. As you can see I’m starting to trust you too. I hope we can have no regrets. Goodnight. Your Lorenzo.
Rosario was beside himself with the excitement of it all. He felt strange, on one hand he wanted to refuse the situation and on the other he felt drawn to it. Who knows why? Once again he had trouble sleeping and could only think of the next time he would meet Lorenzo. He dreamt once again of the monster, except that this time the monster was smiling and instead of grasp, he beckoned him to follow, which Rosario did, unafraid. He let himself be taken by the hand down into a dark tunnel which then slowly got lighter and lighter. He was feeling light and calm, and happy. Happier than he had ever felt in his whole life, then suddenly he awoke.
