One Last Kiss

I heave a contented sigh as I watch the characters on the screen doing something but not paying enough attention to know what. He puts his arm around and I breathe him in. I lean my head on his shoulder and close my eyes, wishing this moment could never end. I smile up at him and to my surprise and intense delight, he tenderly cups my chin in his hand and kisses me.


“I love you,” I whisper.


“I love you more,” he whispers back


Now it is my turn to kiss him, and I do, with a fierce passion.

***********


I wake up to the annoying beeping of my iHome alarm clock and sigh. It was only a dream, of course. But still I hit the snooze button with the hope of getting one last kiss burning in my heart.

 That was really cute. It was relatable, realistic, and captured the images well. Anyway, great style, drew the reader in.  A++.

Umm it's a very good start. Pretty short, but that's cool. Add more to it, and it'll be great!

Ummm maybe have her actually meet this guy in real life. Like, at school or at her job or something. Unless she doesnt actually have a specific guy in mind and he's faceless. That could be interesting, meeting a boy that reminds her of this dream... *shrug*
