He use to be "The Other Man"...

I've been married for 7 years. We have a fairly close group of friends (High-School chums and then some). One ended up more then a friend through a complicates turn of events. Several eventful evenings later, the arrangement was broken off and we didn't see each other for over a year. Fast forward to a few days ago, at a gathering of our friends and their friends. Supposedly he wasn't coming (work or another engagement).
Of course, who should arrive by surprise. I was sure we'd moved on. Left all of our feelings in the past, never to emerge between us again.
The moment his eyes caught mine, I felt my heart nearly pound from my chest. That steely gaze he sported induced a slew of wants and cravings I just couldn’t subside no matter how hard I tried. I tore my eyes away as fast as they’d move, but given a few specks of time they wandered back, drawn to this man I just can’t wrench from my fantasies. I have to stay away, but he pulls me in even though I’m certain he doesn’t even realize it.
I want him. I need him. But I love my husband and marriage far too much to risk any sort of harm to our relationship.
