She needed the freedom to roam, strong arms to hold her close. She needed no obligations but disciplined expectations. She needed the sting of roughened hands and the tenderness of soothing lips.

She needed to have her stubborn will tempered, her impatience teased and tested. She needed to be recognized for her talents but loved even more for her flaws. She needed the impossible.
