First Kiss

October 2, 2017 by The Citron Review

By Nicholas Marcus

 

They kissed. His wet palms, those first-time jitters, the overwhelming nausea. Everything disappeared when they kissed. Tingles, starting at his lips, worked their way down his neck, past the pounding flutter in his chest, down to his toes, and back.

He knew she felt it too.

They shared that moment, a lifetime, a peek into the future: a real, proper first date, a wedding, kids, growing older and older until they kissed one final time. All that, their whole lives, in the span of a kiss.

She pulled away, pocketed his dollar, and called β€œnext!”
