It goes without saying that Christian Grey is a very possessive man…especially when it comes to Ana Steele. He certainly makes sure she is aware of this fact more than a few times throughout the Fifty Shades Trilogy. Christian often voiced his jealousy and displeasure at other men showing any sort of interest in Ana, or taking notice of her beauty or attractiveness. But oftentimes he’d get needlessly irritated and upset when he’d mistakenly assume that acquaintances of hers were interested in being more than just friends with her. Time and again Ana would have to to calm Christian down and convince him that her many male friends were just that–friends.
However, he and Ana find themselves in a situation in Fifty Shades Freed where his possessiveness and resulting anger is quite justified! So, I decided to attempt an illustration of their visit to Zax in Aspen…and the excitement they created on the dance floor of the club!
I have to admit it was a bit fun to see Christian finally let loose with some emotion. He might show some anger or frustration at times, but to be provoked into actual fisticuffs was quite a surprise! While I don’t condone violence, he was somewhat justified in reverting back to his fighting ways in this instance. Yes, Ana was quite capable of handling the situation herself, and had already resorted to some violence herself, but ever the chivalrous man–Christian quickly stepped in and confronted the Blond Giant himself.
Oh who am I kidding? If anyone even dared to attempt to harm Ana in any way, Christian would stop at nothing to completely annihilate the offender. Lucklly, it just took one punch to convince the hairy-handed stranger to scurry away with no further injury…except to his pride.
On a more serious note, it was interesting to get a slight peek into Christian’s past, and the fact that he often got in scrapes in school. The fact that he quickly and seemingly uncontrollably became violent with the man harassing Ana, and how it took Ana a bit of time to get him to finally calm down, was a reminder that he still had a lot of work to do with Dr. Flynn. But we all know he’d be in the capable hands of the good doctor!
It was also interesting to note that while Christian was often jealous and possessive about Ana, she was just as jealous and possessive about him! While Christian epitomizes the aesthetic ideals of a male, I’m sure not every female on the planet would be instantly attracted to him. Yet Ana eyed every woman with suspicion, and mentally noted how long their eyes would linger on him, how they would flush in his presence or become flustered or too chatty. It might have had more to do with her own lack of self-confidence, but it was still exhibiting jealousy and possessiveness nevertheless. As I’ve noted before, they share a lot more in common than they they realized…
In any case, with that bit of excitement out of the way in the dance club, and after Ana managed to calm Christian down, the two of them were finally able to engage in some dance floor action of the traditional kind!
Note July 13, 2013: The very observant Tera let me know in comments that I had forgotten one very important detail in the piece…Ana’s wedding ring! How could I have forgotten that?! I always attempt to include the smallest detail, so I’m still kicking myself over it!
But, it’s all easily remedied! I went ahead and simply added it into the illo!
Ahhh…now I feel better.
Note July 14, 2013: You’d think that if I added Ana’s ring, I’d remember to give Christian his ring too, wouldn’t you? Thank you to those on my Facebook page that let me know!
