It was all over and done
with. People were filing home and the cleaning crews were coming out. It was
2017…the New Year.
You walked into your favorite
coffee shop; having decided to get a cup on your way home.
“(Y/n) stop to get a brew for
the way home?” Trixie the granddaughter of the owner asked.
“You know me. Can’t make it a
couple of hours without it.”
“I figured so. That’s why I already made you a cup.” She said smiling as she
handed you the cup.
“You know me well.”
“Nah, I’m just psychic.” She
“Oh yeah, then how bout you
tell me my fortune.”
Putting her fingers to her
temples she squeezed her eyes closed. “I predict you will kiss someone for the
new year.” She said.
“The count-down came and
gone.” You said laughing. “Maybe next year.”
You were about to walk out,
but a gorgeous blond walked in and you couldn’t help but take a little bit of
extra time with putting cream in your cup.
“Alex I didn’t think you’d be
stoppin’ by.” Trixie said.
“I need a pit of break so I
thought I’d pick up a cup of that strawberry tea.”
“I’ll have to run in the back
and make some. Take a minute or two; you willin’ to wait?”
“Yeah. Take however long you
You decided to be brave and
ask the blond if she had a good New Year’s Eve.
“It was fine. Just catching
up on some work. What about you?”
“It was ok. Celebrated on a friend’s
roof, did the count down and all that.”
“You know, when I was in collage I could party like there was no tomorrow and
now…now I don’t even kiss someone at midnight.” The woman said.
“I didn’t kiss anyone either
if it makes you feel better.” You said.
“Not really.” She laughed. “I’m
“Alright I got the tea.”
Trixie called as she turned the corner.
You were about to leave but
Alex stopped you before you could.
“Do you want to get something
to eat? I know this great place just a few blocks down.”
“I’d like that.”
The two of you had dinner and
talked and laughed about everything. You were now standing outside the restaurant
about to say your goodbyes.
“You know I was thinking…”
“What if…if we kiss? It’s not
that long after midnight.”
Smiling you stepped forward
and wrapped your hands in her hair before kissing her. You took control of the
kiss; running your tongue along her bottom lip asking for permission. She
opened to you and…you were sure if she hadn’t already wrapped her arms around
your waist, you would have fallen into a heap on the ground. You could feel my
body burning with blush, your heart was beating fast, and your breathing was
becoming shallow. Your skin felt warm all over, and when you kissed her even more deeply you felt something almost like an electric shock run over your skin. And somewhere
deep inside you felt that tightening pull of wanting, of needing someone.
Pulling away from her you looked her in the eye for moment before stepping away. “Sorry I…un…that may
have gotten a bit out of hand.” You said blushing.
“Hey, don’t blush. I mean it’s
cute, but don’t be embarrassed. I…I enjoyed it too. In fact, I was wondering if
you’d like to come back to my place?”
“Are you sure?”
“Lead the way.” You said smiling and giving her your hand.
