Passion & Purity: 36 I Have You Now Unravished
… Glad I’m not jaded by night in bed with you, as married couples are. They can bear to sit at opposite side of the car. I’m glad I still can’t quite keep my hands off you, still must be warned not to “muss you up.” I have you now unravished, and that is just how I need you now. The schoolboy in me still wonders and is awkward-we’ve not had “experience”-which takes the edge off. We will, I suppose, get used to each other, the feel and smell and look of one another, but I am glad it is not so now. As I never felt before, I feel now that I must keep myself for you. God knows it is a stay to purity, and He knows how many shaking to purity are ahead.
So in case you couldn’t tell by that they got the green light from God. Jim writes something here that sums up this chapter nicely.
I remember Edward’s wonderment because this was the first time he was snuggling. He had simple questions like, “what does a kiss feel like?”
He knows they answer to that question and a few others and wishes he didn’t know the answer too. Discovering the answers is part of the fun of the honeymoon.
My wonderment I knew was lessened because of my experience. I knew the basics of kissing and nuzzling. Stubble was amazing because it was first time with that.
I’m sorry I robbed Edward’s wife of watching him have full wonderment. I’ve done a disservice to my husband as well.
