“Intimacy,” I whispered into her hair.
I slid my hand under her shirt, stroking the soft skin of her abdomen. I felt the subtle changes in her breathing. I smiled; she was still weak to my touch even when angry with me.
“Seth, I would just like to go to sleep.”
“I’m not trying to have sex with you right now, Calida. I’m answering your question.”
“I didn’t ask you anything.”
My fingers splayed across her toned stomach, my thumb grazed the bottom curve of her breast.
“Yes, you did,” I replied, planting soft kisses along her neck. It was a very beautiful neck and my second favorite part of her body I enjoyed kissing. “At the beach. You asked why I wouldn’t kiss you.”
Stepping back, I slowly turned her in my arms. I wanted to see those gorgeous green eyes of hers. I wanted to see the emotions in them as I gave her this little piece of me. You don’t have to explain yourself to her. Her gaze was trained on my chest as she chewed on her bottom lip.
“Look at me. Please.” I waited until I had her complete attention before continuing.
Cupping her lovely face in my hands, I leaned down to partake in those luscious lips of hers. Their softness, the warmth, the taste of them called to me. It wasn’t a deep passionate kiss. I only wanted to feel her lips on mine. Resting my forehead on hers, I stroked her cheeks with my thumbs as I spoke.
“For me, a kiss is not just a kiss.” Her eyes were wide with confusion, causing a smile to tug at the corner of my mouth. “It’s about intimacy, the connection you have with a person. It implies a level of comfort and personal knowledge of the person you share the kiss with.” I leaned down, placing a soft kiss just below her ear before continuing. “A kiss can be orgasmic in itself. When performed by two lovers, it can be more seductive, more meaningful, and exude more intensity than the act of sex. It can leave you breathless and wanting; desirous heat and passion can bleed into every fiber of your being when embraced so achingly close to someone sharing the same sensations.”
Calida’s pupils dilated, her breathing became shallow, and she shifted her stance, pressing her legs tighter together. She was aroused yet trying to fight it. I traced the outline of her lips with my thumb. They parted slightly, bringing another smile to my face. “So…” Her tongue darted out, licking her lips as she tried to gather her thoughts “…um, I…I don’t…I wasn’t expecting that kind of an answer.”
“Before you, Calida, I hadn’t kissed or had the desire to kiss anyone for a very, very long time. I take that very seriously. Do you understand that?” Wordlessly, she nodded her head. “Good. Now keep your hands at your side. No touching, understand?”
“Yes,” she replied breathlessly.
I placed my hands on the counter on either side of her but kept our bodies separated. “I’m going to kiss you now.”
