THE SILENT WITNESSES
October 31, 2019. Thursday.
It’s 11:57 p.m. Halloween night. Dark. A dense fog creeps along the water,
and a steady drizzle falls as a silver Mercedes-Maybach with two occupants
turns onto a muddy track that leads into an abandoned grain-storage site.
Rain glints as the headlights pan over the bases of the old silos. The sedan
crosses a railway track and bounces along a potholed road that parallels the
edge of the ocean inlet. The Mercedes comes to a stop in deep shadows
beneath a bridge that arcs over the inlet, linking the North Shore to the city
of Vancouver. The headlights go out. Everything is now black except the
glow of the fog-shrouded city across the water.
The occupants feel safe here, hidden, cocooned in the buttery leather
and warmth of the luxury sedan. Overhead the bridge traffic is a soft roar,
punctuated by rhythmic clunks as vehicles traverse the metal joints.
The man and woman don’t waste time marveling at how the incoming
tide swirls like ink past the old silo dockyard. Their lust has reached fever
pitch. It started this morning—this little game of theirs—over a breakfast
meeting, her stockinged calf pressing against his pant leg beneath a table as
they calmly discussed legal strategy with city officials. Desire blossomed
through subsequent high-level discussions around a lawsuit, followed by
lunch. It peaked with a stolen kiss behind the door in the men’s washroom.
Both knew it would end like this—frenzied sex in her car parked in some
louche location. It’s the anticipation the couple is addicted to. The danger.
The risk. They are both married to other people. He’s a member of the
provincial legislative assembly. She is a top city lawyer. They both have
They always pick a place like this. Something industrial. Dank.
Deserted. Tagged with graffiti, littered with urban detritus. Sordid yet
delicious in a disreputable way. It’s their quirk—fornicating against
backdrops of squalor. Juxtaposing their glamour and brains and wealth and
privilege against these gritty urban canvases—it piques their desire. Makes
them feel powerful. It layers their affair with a noir-film graininess that
feeds their carnal pleasure.
She kicks off her Saint Laurent pumps while yanking at his red tie,
fumbling with his zipper. He pops open the pearly buttons on her silk
blouse, bunching up her skirt, ripping her expensive pantyhose in his
hunger. She scrambles over the console, straddles him. As she sinks down
onto him, he closes his eyes and moans with pleasure. But she suddenly
goes still. She sees two sets of headlights appearing in the mist. The beams
punch twin tunnels into the fog—one vehicle behind the other. The cars turn
in front of the abandoned silos and head toward the rail tracks.
