Prompt (By the amazing purified-trough-flames.tumblr.com): Lily is helping Sarah rehearse for a role and there’s a kiss scene between Sarah´s and Lily´s characters (Pre-Relationship)
“But what about last time? You really mean a lot to me and I can’t accept I might be losing you!” Sarah screamed with eyes full of tears while holding some papers and staring at Lily, who was sat on the couch holding some papers as well.
“Wow wow wow! That was really good Sarah!” The blonde got up from the couch and high-fived her friend, who had a big smile on her face.
“Thank you lovepants! I really hope I get to do it right, it’s a huge thing for me”
“You will, I have no doubt”
Both girls sat on the couch; Lily stared at the elder woman who got quiet and serious out of nowhere; After a while staring at the blank space, Sarah fitted her friend, who was still staring at her, now with a concerned look;
“You know” Sarah turned her body to Lily’s side while taking a deep breath “There’s that scene that… that I’m really worried about”
“Well, let’s rehearse it then! I’m here to help you Sar” The blonde gave her an encouraging smile and caressed Sarah’s hand, which was rested on the couch
“I’m… I, um, well that’s the problem” The elder woman moved her hand from bellow her friend’s closer to herself.
“Sarah… we’ve been friends for so many years, don’t tell me you’re embarassed?!”
“No! No… I mean, not at all” Sarah moved her head with a negative movement “Ok, yeah, you’re right, let’s do it, it’s on page twelve”
Lily smiled and started reading the script; Oh God, it was a kiss scene; She could feel her knees going weak.
“Look, we don’t need to actually kiss” The elder woman said nervously “It’s just that this part is hard and it’d be really good if I could rehearse it, you know? Like, it´s a…”
“Sarah, it’s fine” Lily cut her “We’re both actresses, it’s just a scene, that’s ok”
Lily was absolutely dying inside; She’d always been madly in love with her friend and, even tough she knew she shouldn’t feed something that would never happen, she couldn’t miss the chance of kissing her long time, secret lover; Even if it was just pretend.
“Fine, fine” Sarah smiled “You’re right… So I’ll play my character, Rose, and you’ll play Kevin, is it fine?”
“Sure” Lily smiled nervously “Let’s go then”
Both girls turned their bodies to each other while still sat on the couch; Sarah began;
“I don’t think I can do that, Kevin…” The elder friend stared at Lily with the eyes already full of tears
“Why not? Of course you can! You’ve got this!” The blonde approached the friend and took both of her hands in hers “You’ve been preparing for so long!”
“But… I don’t think I’m ready” Sarah looked bellow “I mean, you saw the other girls, they did it so perfectly”
“Well, to be quite honest, I didn’t see the other girls” Lily lifted Sarah’s head by the chin “I couldn’t take my eyes out of you”
Sarah felt a burning in her stomach. It was it, the kissing part.
Lily started getting closer and closer; Both could feel each other’s breath when suddenly Sarah abruptly pulled over.
“ I can’t do that Lily, I just can’t do that this way” The woman felt her tears coming down, along with her friend’s; “Lily… why, why are you crying?”
“What do you mean by “this way”?” The blonde ignored the question previously asked
“Nothing, it was just nothing” Sarah sobbed, it was being too much.
They both stared at each other; Completely silence. Tears falling down harder and harder.
The elder woman just couldn’t take it anymore, if she didn’t take the courage to do it now, she knew she could and would never do it. Calmly but still shaking, Sarah started approaching Lily; She was just inches away the blonde’s mouth when she stopped and just kept there.
“Sarah…” Lily whispered “Just kiss me”
And so the woman did; Such a gentle, sweet kiss, none of them wanted to pull apart again.
Softly, Lily went back, never stopping looking at her friend’s eyes;
“I like you… a lot” The blonde whispered
“I like you too… a lot”
Both smiled and went in for another kiss; They could feel each other smiling trough it and it was a feeling they wish to have forever.
