I can’t get her to look at me, I think she’s ashamed that she has no
experience to go with. When I’m finally begging, she looks up and I can’t help it. She looks so lost, so
sad. I know that she just needs the courage, but how will she ever find it if she doesn’t know what the
reward is like? So I lean over, I place my hand on her cheek, and my lips on hers. She doesn’t freak out,
so I use my tongue to entice her. I run it along her lower lip. I feel her breathing pick up and I’m nervous
she’ll push me away, but when she doesn’t I try to coax her lips apart so I can really kiss her. When she
opens them, her tongue meets mine and I have to keep repeating to myself, “Slow, slow, slow,” or my
body might take over and try to push her past her limits. She’s not ready for more than this.
I don’t let myself linger too long. I would love to kiss her all night, but
she needs baby steps. I need to give her that or this won’t work. “I’m sorry. I couldn’t help myself, but I
should’ve made sure it was okay first.” I say it knowing that she needed the surprise of it or it would’ve
Her response takes me by surprise, “Don’t. Be. Sorry.” She is breathing
hard and can’t form a sentence. I love it. That means she loved it. When she brings her hand up to touch
her lips, I know I can make this better for her. I stop her hand with mine and leaving the other on her
cheek, I lean back in for a deeper kiss. She responds immediately. I make this one longer, but not much.
This time when I pull back, we are both panting for air.
“Wow.” A simple statement from her confirming that she liked it.
I’m Lisa. I live in sunny southern California with my wonderful husband and two teenage children.
Hubbyis a high school PE teacher and is the coach of three different high school sports. With two kids
in high school and involved in activities both inside and outside of school, I have a lot to juggle. When
home, I lock myself inside the office to write. I’ve always loved to write, but life always seemed to be too
busy. When inspiration finally hit, I made the most of the time hubby and kids were busy and published
my first book in February 2014. It’s a teen/young adult book and the first in a series. I’m currently
working on a New Adult/Contemporary Romance series with the first book due out end of June 2014. Be
on the look-out for more.
