Well, what do you think she feels?
He is staring again. Her hair is thrown over one shoulder, showing the graceful line along her neck. Their eyes catch.
‘There’s been something I’ve been meaning to find out’ he says, his eyes unwaveringly locked with hers.
‘Yeah… what’s that?’ she fidgets as she asks, looking past him.
He moves closer, kneeling in front of her seat, forcing his way back into her view. ‘It’s not something I can ask you. I- I just need you to trust me’ he edges forward as he speaks. Vertigo washes over him, almost as if he was looking over a deathly drop.
‘okay’ she mumbles, dumfounded. Her heart beat was erratic. She doesn’t know if this is what she wants.
He kisses her. Softly at first, but when she kissed back, he pushes on. He holds her close, leaning into her body. Her hand slips to his hair and tangled itself. He feels the heat and electricity create a firestorm between them. It lasts less than a minute, but they are both shaken and panting by the end. He slowly opens his eyes and she is looking back at him curiously. He needs to know what his best friend felt…
This scene was running through my head so I thought I would share. Bit cliche…
‘Hey, come here for a second’ I said
‘Why?’ she threw back
‘Just do it’ I retorted, which surprisingly made her jump up and come over to me. I took her jaw into both my hands gently, tilting her head up ever so slightly to stare into her eyes. I had to know. ‘What would you do-‘ her eyes darted away, distracted. ‘Hey! Look at me, I want to know this for sure’ her eyes found their way back to mine. ‘What would you do if-‘ I stopped mid-sentence and kissed her, holding her firm just for a second as I pressed my lips to hers; Tasting her own natural sweet flavor. Letting go and pulling back I saw conflict run over her face, then worry. ‘That’s okay, I understand’ I said with a halfhearted smile, turning towards the door, to run.
‘Hey Jack-‘ I turned back as she leapt into my arms smiling down at me ‘Do that again’ and so we kissed again, and again, and again.
Time to go to bed, lay awake for hours and think about the little things I’ll never do.
- Kiss her forehead.
- Hold her hand.
- Brush her hair out of her eyes.
- Cuddle her as she sleeps.
- Pick her flowers.
- Make a fool of myself just to see her smile.
- Tell her these things that I want to do.
