I know u have done this one before, but I would love to read another story about the A Team first kiss
Ashlyn and Ali had spent every minute together that they could while they were at camp. When they weren’t together, they were texting, facetiming, and Ashlyn had an endless supply of memes that she new would make Ali laugh when she sent them. Now that camp had come to a close, it was time for Ashlyn to go back to Florida and Ali was going to spend some time with Kyle in California. To say that they were both confused about their relationship would be an understatement.
There were so many times throughout the national team camp where Ali thought that Ashlyn was going to kiss her or ask her out or at least tell her how she felt, but every time something was about to happen, they go interrupted. Ashlyn on the other hand was feeling more discouraged than ever. She was convinced that the universe was trying to tell her that her and Ali were not meant to be after all. Despite literally everyone on the team telling Ashlyn to just kiss Ali and get it over with, there was still worry in her mind that she couldn’t make go away.
They were both scared to leave camp because they didn’t want to think about what their relationship would become when they were a part. Ali couldn’t help but wonder if Ashlyn would forget about her the second she got back to beach and the sun that she loved so much. Ashlyn was worried that Ali would get so caught up in her adventures with Kyle that she wouldn’t even cross her mind, but they were both wrong about that.
It seems like they talked even more now that they were a part than they did when they were together, if that was even possible. Ali spent most of her time smiling at her phone and Ashlyn barely even got in the water. She was too busy talking to Ali constantly. In the middle of one of their midnight conversations, Ali mentioned that her mother was in Miami and she was thinking of coming down for a few days to visit. Ashlyn felt like she had finally been handed the opportunity that she needed to really tell Ali how she felt. She was even more confident when Ali said that she wanted to spend some of her time in Florida with Ashlyn.
Ali had been in Florida for four days with her mom and she was finally on her way to Satellite to be with Ashlyn. Ashlyn spent hours that morning making sure that her house was spotless. She did laundry, washed the dishes and then washed them again to make sure that there were no soap stains. She changed the sheets in her room and the guest room and she dusted every surface that she could find. At ten o’clock on the dot, Ashlyn heard the doorbell ring. She practically sprinted to the door but stopped dead in her tracks before she opened it. It wasn’t until the doorbell rang for a second time that she realized she was just standing there, staring at the door.
When Ashlyn opened the door, she couldn’t decide if what happened next was a shock or a relief. Before Ashlyn could even say ‘hello,’ Ali had wrapped her arms around Ashlyn’s neck and pressed their lips together. Ashlyn’s hands immediately went to Ali’s hips and she heard a sigh but she couldn’t tell if it came from her or Ali. After some amount of time, neither of them could say if they were standing there for minutes or for hours, Ali pulled away, but left her arms hanging loosely around Ashlyn’s neck.
Ashlyn opened her mouth to speak but Ali beat her to it.
“I’m sorry, Ashlyn. That is definitely not how I pictured our first kiss going.” Ali said with a chuckle. “I just couldnt take it anymore, Ash. I talked to my mom and she said that we couldn’t just let the world keep pulling us apart. I couldn’t come here and spend another week just sitting around waiting for something to happen between us.”
Ashlyn smiled and pulled Ali inside her house, closing the door behind her, “So, you talk to your mom about me?”
Ali laughed at Ashlyn’s response. “I just showed up at your doorstep and kissed you and that’s all you have to say?” Ali replied with a grin on her face.
Ashlyn just shrugged and said, “Well, the kiss was pretty good too.”
Ali leaned in and kissed Ashlyn for a second time. There kiss was broken up with a shrill beep from Ali’s phone. Ali looked at the screen and laughed. She turned her phone to Ashlyn so she could read the text from her mom.
If you haven’t kissed her yet, you’re grounded ;)
Ashlyn took Ali’s phone from her hand and tossed it on the couch. “Well I at least I don’t have to worry about getting your mom’s approval.”
“I love you, Ashlyn.” Ali’s tone was suddenly serious. “I’m tired of hiding and I’m tired of waiting. These past few weeks with you have been the best of my life and I love you, more than anything.”
Ashlyn brushed Ali’s hair out of her face and placed one more gentle kiss on her lips before saying anything, “I love you too, Alex. And I’ve loved you since the moment I laid eyes on you.”
Ashlyn and Ali had spent hours and hours since they had meet picturing their perfect first kiss and none of those scenarios included them being on the doorstep of Ashlyn’s house, but now that it had happened neither of them could picture anything better.
