Kissing Day


Warning: Extreme awkwardness ahead.

In lieu of kissing blog day here is my attempt at a not so romantic kissing scene.

After their initial meeting, Kate remained undecided about whether she wanted to return Oliver’s affections. He spent a whole month carrying supplies to her house, helping her father mend fences, and giving her thousands of compliments every day. In the end, it took him standing up to a much larger man who wanted to walk her home. Of course he had received a broken nose for his efforts, but Kate finally relented and gave Oliver permission to court her.

For a month they just walked beside one another holding hands. Six months later, she allowed him to give her a peck on the cheek. Then the day came. She took his hand in hers and stared deep into his eyes. “It’s time Oliver.”

“Time for what?”

“You may kiss me now.”

Oliver swallowed hard and stared at her with wide eyes. It was one thing to let a kiss happen, quite another to be told to do it, especially since he had never kissed a girl in his life. She closed her eyes and sat still, waiting for him to bend forward and meet her sweet full lips with his. He took a deep breath, puckered up, and closed his eyes. He leaned in and almost missed her completely. Instead of landing on her lips, he grazed her right cheek. After opening his eyes to get his bearings, he slid his mouth to the left and just barely touched his lips to hers. When he tried to draw away, she pulled him closer, extending the kiss. She probed his mouth with her tongue, causing saliva to drip down onto his chin. He found it difficult to breath, but didn’t dare back away until she did.

After the kiss, she insisted on a proposal with a date to be set after he was made a Defender.

It's still rough, but nevertheless there it is.

Happy Kissing Day.

HA! Okay - that was most definitely NOT romantic, but made me laugh. Sounded like my first kiss...only I never told the guy to do it and we didn't get married. But it was most definitely awkward. :)

Tabitha Bird said...

She told him to kiss her? Wow. And he did? And then she tells him to marry her? She is some woman hey.:)
Great work.

Heather Sunseri said...

Wow, that was awkward and very, funny! I love how she demanded that he marry her after the kiss.

Jessica said...

LOL I actually kind of like her. It would be good if he turned her bossiness on its head and took charge. Heehee!
Thanks for sharing!

Patti said...

I've been reading everyone's kissing scene. There is definitely some good ones out there. The steamy kiss, the soft kiss, the almost kiss, the angry kiss.

Go kiss someone today.

Dara said...

LOL, that's great. I think I'm one of the few people who did marry the one they first kissed--and mine wasn't so bad. Then again, I was also 19-- older than the average person when it first happens, so who knows...

Natalie said...

She's rather forward huh? Loved it.

Renee Collins said...

Melissa said...

Oh, I actually felt sorry for the poor guy! And the girl, wow! She won't take no for an answer, huh? Nice job:)

Karen Amanda Hooper said...

Eeeek, in real life I hate kisses that start with requesting or giving permission. But it is fun to read about those situations. Great job! :)
