Here is an excerpt from Candace’s New Book Losing You.
Chapter Four – Not My Daughter
Lips slightly parted, William cranks his neck and Kristi leans in closer. They embrace passionately, holding wine glasses in one hand and each other in the other. Slowly, William leans her toward the sofa and she takes him by the hand, taking his wine glass from his delicate fingers and places both glasses on the glass-top coffee table.
“Show me to your room,” she says.
William’s eyes peer down the slit in her dress, at her short, petite frame, to the small of her back as he kisses her shoulder.
“Sure,” he whispers.
They take each other by the hand and move toward the bedroom. Kristi smiles radiantly and they embrace, finding one another’s lips, and they fall gently to the bed. Kristi on top of William, she removes a strap to her dress. William places his hands onto her waist.
“This is hard for me,” he says.
Kristi leans closer to him and presses her lips to his neck, then to his ear lobe. “Why is that,” she says softly.
William takes a deep breath, “Because I haven’t had sex since…”
“Since what,” she places both hands to his shoulders, laying her body onto his.
“Since Marissa,” he says.
Kristi lays her head upon his chest. “It’s going to be okay,” she says.
“But it’s not okay,” he puts both arms around her.
William rolls over onto his side, turning Kristi to face him.
“She…she liked it rough,” William explains.
“She liked what rough?” Kristi raises an eyebrow.
“Sex,” he says, taking a deep breath.
Kristi frowns, “I don’t think I want to hear this.”
“But I need you to,” he responds astutely.
“Okay,” she whispers.
He lays his head into her chest, pushing her on her back. “She liked domination. She used to ask me to do things to her…”
“Like grab her by the arms and twist them behind her back…”
“While you have sex from the back,” Kristi shrugged, playing with his hair, “that’s not that weird.”
