Two caramel frappuccinos and a bag full of cake pops sat between the two of them.
“Sugar is always good for getting over someone.” Beca assured her as she nudged the bag of cake pops closer to Luisa, who still looked sad. Although, she had obviously perked up since Beca had talked to her in the park.
The brunette hoped that the other girl had forgotten about the awkward compliments that just kept slipping out on their walk to Starbucks. She’d actually called Luisa “physically flawless” and “a gorgeous specimen.” Her ability to embarrass herself so often in such a short span of time was shocking to her. She’d never been like this before.
“It does seem to help. Although, I thought we were getting coffee.” Luisa said as she took a tentative sip of the Frappuccino and smiled. “This tastes like a…what do you Americans call it? A milkshake?”
Beca laughed a little as she watched Luisa take small sips of the creamy drink. “It’s basically a coffee milkshake.”
“Where were these things when my last girlfriend broke up with me?” Luisa joked as she dipped her finger in the whipped cream and licked it off.
The brunette felt her mouth go dry at the words. She would have never guessed that someone so beautiful would also like girls, but it was impossible to judge anything so personal off looks alone.
“G-girlfriend?” Beca asked, trying to seem casual.
“Yes. Girlfriend. And I was stood up by a boy. Is that a problem?” Luisa asked. Her attempt to be serious would have worked if she hadn’t been trying to find her straw by reaching out with her tongue while maintaining eye contact with Beca. It looked like she was making out with the air.
“No,” Beca giggled and put her hand over her mouth. “You look like an idiot. You’re basically frenching the air.”
Luisa found the straw and took a drink. Her lips were stained with caramel as she smiled. “I was finding my straw. It seems like your mind is in the gutter.”
A blush crept up Beca’s cheeks and Luisa leaned closer until Beca could smell the caramel and coffee on her breath. The brunette’s eyes dropped to look at Luisa’s lips before flickering back up to her eyes.
The kiss was sudden as Luisa moved forward and pressed her lips against the brunette’s. Beca was stunned and stared at Luisa for a moment before returning the kiss.
When they finally pulled apart, they smiled a bit nervously.
