She could feel his hot breath against her cheek, but her eyes were closed so that she could not see the fine details of his flesh. Her lips were slightly parted, and she had to fight to prevent herself acting on the impulse to run her tongue over them in her nervous excitement. Their faces were just touching, their foreheads pressed together; their cheeks were a mere hairs breath apart. His hands were on her waist, her arms wrapped around her neck. He was going to kiss her.
