Craig Good wrote this on Peace Dividend:

He was surprised when she didn’t resist but instead clung to him. The storm raged on, as did their growing passion…

There came a moment when each knew they had to be together. They knew it was wrong… Their families would not understand… but… so consumed in their passion, they didn’t hear the door open… the click of the light switch… the power was back on, and…”

Dammit, it’s just wrong.
