He anchored the boat and walked towards me. He hesitated for a minute, seemingly torn, and looked skyward. I held out my hands to him and he took the first steps that would change my life forever.
Resigned, he reached out to me and I tugged him to the deck. He didn’t resist me this time. Oddly hesitant, he hovered above me. His eyes never left mine. They were that stormy shade of ocean that I wanted to drown in. He was trying to tell me something, but all I could see was infinity in those eyes. I wanted to follow him anywhere. He held my gaze,
challenging me to look away. I couldn’t drop my eyes. I was suddenly very aware of a power in him I only vaguely sensed before. I was startled and a little afraid then. But it was far too late for second thoughts.
Sean was resting on his elbows above me, just barely touching me. I could feel the muscles in his chest brushing against my breasts. His thighs were pressing against my legs. He was very warm. I shivered against him. Every muscle in his body tensed. I was dissolving underneath him yet he still didn’t kiss me. I wanted to touch him but I couldn’t move a muscle. He still searched my eyes as if he was trying to read my soul. My thoughts exploded like
fireworks. Every memory, every thought I’d had about him raced through my head until I made a startling
discovery. Somewhere along the way, I’ve fallen in love with him.
His mouth came down on mine in a kiss that stopped my heart. A current passed through my lips to my toes. I vibrated with it and tried to arch against him, but I was paralyzed. He relaxed against me and I melted into the deck. Every inch of me pulsed against him. My skin felt too tight and too hot,
raw and exposed.
