Wet Dream

WET DREAM
It Happened One Night 
Short Fiction - A Passionate Love Story
By

VIKRAM KARVE

From my Creative Writing Archives:

One of my earliest pieces of short fiction. 

A very short adult love story I wrote 25 years ago, in the 1990s. 

This story is for adults only. 


IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT 

The terrifying nightmare grew.

It was just one revolving pattern of flames with inhuman sounds screaming at him from all sides. 

He tried to use his limbs – but nothing happened. 

He looked down at his legs – and he saw that the left one was hanging like a piece of bloody sack. 

He felt the searing crash of metal into his body. 

And then – he heard himself screaming in frenzy – as the blaze engulfed him – and pulverized his entire body.

There was another voice now – a different voice.

He sat up violently in the pitch darkness  fighting the blanket.

As he recovered his wits  he realized that the door was partly open. 

He could see a pale figure in the light from the corridor.

“Are you okay...?” she asked. 

He did not say anything.

She entered the room – she walked towards him – and she said: 

“I’m sorry  but you were screaming.”

Trying to steady his breathing  he said to her: 

“Bit of a bad dream  that’s all.”

She sat down on the bed and said: 

“I was shaken scared by your terrifying scream. It must have been a terrible dream.”

“Yes...” he said  and he ran his hand over his wet face.

She reached out and touched his shoulder:

“Lie back now. Try to relax. I will go now – and let you sleep.”

He looked up at her and pleaded: 

“Don’t go. Please don’t go…”

He took her hand  and he pressed her palm gently.

At first – there was no answering pressure.

Then – she pressed back.

She touched his hair with her other hand.

He could feel the want churning inside him like fire.

He moved his hand and touched her skin.

“No...” she said quietly, “We’d better stop now.”

He pulled her gently beside him  feeling the yearning like a physical pain.

She did not resist.

Then all at once – she was helping him.

They made love.

They made love  first with tenderness  then gradually building up into a passionate frenzy – as they both become rough and hard  demanding more of each other  till they lay exhausted  their limbs still entangled.

He lay in bed in self-commiseration  wondering why it had happened.

His train of thoughts spiralled into an abyss – as he thought about his agonizing loneliness  his frightening, corrosive, desolate life  the terrifying nightmare  the frenzied act.

Was it an impulsive reckless act of love...? 

Or  was it wild rage...? 

Or – was it a desperate act of expiration...?

Or – was it a wet dream...?

The whole thing suddenly seemed sordid.

He turned towards her and started to say: 

“I am sorry...”

She instantly put her hand on his mouth – and she said to him: 

“Please don’t say it. What happened  it just happened. It was destined to happen. ”

He closed his eyes and lay still.

When he opened his eyes  he saw her standing near the door.

“It was good of you to come...” he said.

“Yes...” she said.

She quietly stepped out of the room  she closed the door  and – she walked out of his life forever.
