It Can Be Arranged (Trimberly)
“What are you thinking about?” Kim looked over at Trini who was lying next to her on the railcar.
“I’m thinking about how that cloud sort of looks like a giraffe with a loop in its neck.” Trini pointed at the cloud to the left of them.
Kim squinted her eyes and followed Trini’s hand to find the cloud she was talking about. “Oh, yeah. I can see that.” Kim laughed, as she looked at the misshaped animal cloud.
“What are you thinking about?” Trini asked, putting her arm down between her and Kim’s bodies.
Kim sighed and pursed her lips before responding. “I’m thinking about kissing you again.”
There was a brief pause after Kim’s confession. It was only a second, but it felt like an eternity to Kim. She contemplated jumping off the railcar and taking off down the mountain.
“Really?” Trini finally spoke. “You’d want to do that again?” Kim knew she was nervous, she heard the slight tremble in her question.
Kim took a deep breath through her nose, deciding that she was going to take all the courage she had inside of her and show Trini that she meant it.
She rolled over and lifted herself up slightly so her body was halfway over Trini’s body. She held herself up with her arms and looked down at Trini’s surprised expression.
“Really.” Kim smiled, giving Trini time to pull away or tell her to stop before she started to lower her face slowly. The last thing she saw before she shut her eyes was Trini’s long eyelashes while her eyes closed, ready for the kiss.
When their lips met it felt like the first time all over again. Kimberly felt like she could conquer the world with the electricity that flowed through her veins. Her heart beat faster and she felt so complete she wondered how she had lived this long without Trini.
Kim pulled away slowly and opened her eyes to see Trini looking back up at her hopefully.
“Just so you know,” Kim leaned on her elbow as she spoke. “I don’t want to go a single day without kissing you.” She smiled happily.
“I think that can be arranged.” Trini whispered, reaching up and putting her hand behind Kim’s head to pull her back down for an even deeper kiss.
