Realizing what she wanted to do,she leaned closer to him and touched his mouth with her fingertips. He gazed at her, his pupils widening. She closed her eyes, lifted her face to his, and waited.
Her breath lingered in her lungs, her lips tight together lest it escape. A few seconds passed. Had he not understood? Did he not want to? She let her air go and opened her eyes. He smiled and moved forward, pressing his mouth into hers. His eyes captured her. His arms encircled and drew her closer. Her whole world faded into warmth.
She slid onto his lap, one hand against his chest, one arm around his neck. They parted. She exhaled. While her mouth was still agape, he came for her again. Her fingers grabbed his unruly curls and tightened. Their tongues touched.
