Desire, lust, love...

You're not supposed to feel those things for a woman, and you're definitely not allowed to act on them when you're a Catholic priest. I had taken vows; vows that I've upheld for eight celibate years, and had made a promise to God that I swore I would never break. 

But then I met Eva, my stepmother's estranged twenty-eight-year-old daughter, and she made me forget who I was. What I was.

I prayed for guidance.

I prayed for the strength not to give into temptation.

My prayers went unanswered...or so I thought.
