Love vs. Lust

Chapter 5

Cole lifted his hand and cupped my face in it as he leaned forward. It was as if everything was happening in slow motion yet to fast for me to stop it. His face was so close to mine that I could taste his warm breath on my tongue, it was a mixture between mint and alcohol.

"Would you just kiss her already" my brother complained from beside me and if I wasn't in a state of shock I swear I would have slapped him. It didn't look like Cole took any notice of what my brother was saying but he did close the little space between our mouths and pressed his lips against mine. I thought I would hate it but the moment his lips touched mine I forgot that I wasn't supposed to enjoy kissing him.

His lips were soft against mine and nothing like I had expected. I thought that he would try to stick his tongue down my throat but he didn't. He kissed me gently as if the kiss actually meant something to him. I could feel the sparks between us and as his lips massaged mine I couldn't help but wonder if he felt it too. I felt myself getting more involved in the kiss as the seconds flew by.

My heart was racing in my chest threatening to jump out any moment. The kiss started getting faster and more intense and I was sure the part where he stuck his tongue down my throat would occur at any moment but it didn't, instead Cole pulled away and smiled at me before turning his attention back to the game.

My brother gave Cole a thumps up and I then everybody got back to playing the stupid game, everybody except me. I couldn't get the kiss out of my mind. I was sure I was going to hate it but I didn't, I liked it and that scared me even more. I wasn't supposed to like it. I hate Cole and everything he does so how can I possibly like kissing him.

I sat there in a daze reliving the kiss over and over in my head. I wanted to look at Cole but couldn't get myself to, this was just a game to him. The kiss probably didn't mean anything to him.

"I have to go" I whispered more to myself than anybody else but my brother and Cole looked in my direction with confused expressions on their faces as I got to my feet and ran out of the room. I couldn't take being in there anymore. I needed to get some fresh air and clear my mind. I needed to forget that the stupid kiss ever happened.  

I rushed outside and made my way to my car pushing people out of my way as I went. I knew I should never have come to this stupid party and I was right. Look what happened. I am confused and angry as I get into my car and slam the door shut as I get in and start it. As I make my way home tears start stinging at my eyes and by the time I get home I am sobbing. I run upstairs, lock my door behind me and fall down on my bed crying.

I'm not sure why I am crying but I can't get myself to stop as I think about the kiss once more.
