A soft knock on her door sent her sprinting out of the bathroom back into her bedroom. She had nearly reached the door when it opened silently. Eiden stepped through the door and shut it behind him. They stood a few feet apart and Ava just stared at him, studying the perfection. He smiled, a shyer look than Ava had ever seen from him. “Hello, Love,” he said. Ava forgot to breathe. Her heart stopped beating every time he said that word. Her body was alive with electricity. Tingles were pulsating out from her center. “We must talk,” Eiden said.
“Later,” she said. And she moved towards him with warrior speed. He picked her up and she wrapped her legs around him as their lips met. He was strong enough to only need one arm to support her, the other was tangled in her hair. Their first kisses were urgent and greedy; all Ava could think was that she needed to be closer to him. She crushed herself against his chest and clutched him tighter with her arms. Her entire body felt like it was on fire from the heat of Eiden’s kisses. He lifted her off him and turned her, so she was standing with her back against the wall. He looked at her with such intense passion that Ava was afraid her clothes would burst into flame. He kissed her slowly as he held her face, brushing his thumb along her cheekbone.
Too soon, he stopped and stared at her again. He smiled, not shy this time, but with a radiance that showed his dimples. Ava melted. “I have to leave, Ava. I wish I did not, but I should not be in here. I just had to- well, I needed to see you.”
Ava took his hand and kissed his palm slowly. “I love you, Eiden,” she said softly.Rena and Jenny for the awards. You guys are the best.
