Holding Him This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
   Reluctantly, he approaches my outstretched arms.

A look of frustration crosses his peaked face.

Gently, he places his arms around my neck.

Holding him, I feel an uncontrollably warm and

protective love.

Squeezing tighter and tighter,

I don't want to ever let go.

Finally,

just before releasing him,

I kiss his cheek,

He looks at me with disgust

and begins to run away,

furiously rubbing his contaminated face

and yelling to the world,

"EEW! GROSS!"
