My First Kiss Went A Little Like This
I gasp loudly, not hiding the dust of pink and red arising from embarrassment. "You just licked my cheek." He shrugs, as if it was the most normal thing in the universe. "You had ice cream on your face." "And?" "And I like ice cream." "But you licked me. And it felt. . .weird." He grins. "Weird but good." "True." I lick his face. "You had some icing. I love icing." Sophia and Cody are best friends. They're also each other's first kisses. And that didn't go too well. Although that first kiss does not give justice to their minds from frequent visits of nostalgia, they just cannot avoid one another. They're neighbours and childhood friends, keeping one another company because of their parents neglect. They have practically memorized one another. So they made an unwritten rule not to speak of it, or ever get into the situation again. This is Sophia's seventeenth summer. There are new friendships, new experiences, and new boys just around the corner. Especially Liam, who's taking an obvious interest in Sophia. And who definitely deserves her attention. Yet despite all these distractions, why is it that her gazes lead back to Cody? He gave her the horrors of a first kiss, and also all the smiles, all the laughs, and all the memories. There are still many summers awaiting right? So maybe there's still time for second kisses. Maybe infinite.
