Another Doodle that I stumbled upon. Tried to finish it with a bang--FAIL!
"I'm gonna kiss you now..", she said nervously, as she rubbed her palms on the side for her pink mini dress.
He took a glance at her, a wry smile forming on his lips.
The room grew silent as three pairs of eyes (cameraman, lights man and another assistant) anxiously waited for his next move, but as always he was his mischievous, competitive self again. Besides, it was a test, he was testing her. He knew well enough that she was as competitive as he was and that she was going do it anyway, what he wanted to see was her reaction, how nervous she was going to get, how fast her heart will beat, how loud the thumping would be. But at that very moment, he did not know if it was her heart pounding ever so loudly, or was it his.
She moved forward.. ‘She’s gonna do it..’, he thought, swallowing the lump on his throat.
She carefully lifted her hands and tucked the loose strands of his hair behind his ear. ‘She is really going to do it’, he said to himself.
And he waited, it seemed like an eternity before she leaned closer to him.
He could feel her warmth breath now—tickling his nape, caressing his jaw.
Her balmy hands now touching his cheek.
She leaned closer, a little closer now.
‘She is going to kiss me..’, he thought, “She is really going to kiss me…’
But she seemed to jerk away, like she was not going to do it, like she was going to back out.
He panicked, thoughts ran through his head. He wanted her to kiss him. He wanted it so badly like it was the one thing that would save him from the fires of hell.
He panicked and thought, if she isn’t going to do it, he will.
And before she realized what he was doing, he pressed his cheek towards her, towards her puckered lips.
The kiss—weird, unromantic, awkward, because that was how they are--awkward.
She kissed him, she kissed his cheek—their first kiss..
He smiled, he gloated, he was full of pride.
He never really expected it, he never really thought that heaven was just one kiss away…
