100 Word Challenge - Nervous

The following is in response to the 100 Word Challenge, authored by the skittish Velvet Verbosity. The word, today, is 'Nervous'.

100 Word Challenge

"I don't know what's appropriate."
"Honey, for two hundred bucks, anything you want is appropriate."
"But I've never done this before."
"Look, Honey, you just sit down on the bed, relax, and tell me what you want. We'll do all the stuff she won't do."
"No, it's not that. My wife ... died ... and ...."
"And you've been alone ever since. I'm sorry, Honey."
"Look, maybe this isn't such a good idea."
"It's up to you."
"It's just that I'm so nervous. I've never been with another woman."
"Don't be nervous. Turn out the lights and close your eyes ... and just pretend."

Sooooo, great piece. My feelings on such matters are obviously complex, but it doesn't mean I can't still enjoy some good writing. :)
