It's here! *squeals* Okay, I didn't really squeal, but I am sooo excited. I'm ready to head out and read everyone's wonderful smooching scenes, but first I've got to post mine. Wow, suddenly I'm feeling all inadequate.
I'm going to post a first kiss. This is a scene from my WIP, Visions and it's very brief. That's because the main character, Eden, is on the run from The Consortium (the group who governs the walled city in which everyone now lives). Eden is traveling with her father, her younger sister Noren, her BFF Gwyn, and the potential love interest David. They have just found a place in the city where they can hide, so David decides to sneak in a quick kiss in case they're caught.
"The door's here,"David says. I turn to see that he has opened it and is waiting for us. Gwyn has already gone inside.
Dad picks up Noren and starts toward the entrance. "Let's go. We've got to figure out what we're going to do now."
I'm about to follow when David grabs my arm. I try to ignore the tingling sensation that is now creeping over me, but when I lock onto his intense gaze, a small sigh escapes my now parted lips.
"Eden, I...." he whispers, then swiftly leans down and brushes his lips against mine. The tingling is now replaced by a full course of adrenaline rushing through my body, making every inch feel fully alive.
All too soon, he pulls back. I open my eyes and, in the span of a few seconds, try to convey all of the longing I feel for him in one simple look.
He smiles and reaches over to brush a lock of hair behind my ear. "Come on, everyone's waiting."
I know, it's rough. But I'm still in first draft mode. So, what do you think?
