First Kiss

Moving in for their first kiss he could smell a light floral scented shampoo in her long curly wild black hair, hair that covered the back of his hand. This hand that had been slowly caressing her cheek, the edge of her ear lobe and the line of her jaw as it disappeared from view. Huge brown eyes shrouded by heavy black eyeliner seemed to sparkle and melt as they seductively closed and opened with slight hand movements. He could almost taste the smokey red wine on her breath as she purred the words with slurred S’s “Sex is Stupid.”

Bouncing back into his chair, following a huge gulp of beer, he began laughing. “Yes, yes I suppose it is stupid – and if it wasn’t so fucking awesome, I’d consider giving it up.”
