Where does romance end and abuse begin? What baser forces come into play when men are attracted to women and vice versa? These are some of the questions stirring through my mind at the time I began working on this story. Perhaps the recent news about sexual abuse served as a catalyst. I do know that the challenge of capturing the psycho-dynamics underlying sexual attraction is what compels me to write stories. Flash stories, I’ve discovered, are an ideal medium for capturing these irrational impulses in their enigmatic essence.
