“Don’t look so scared.” He whispers, whilst tucking some loose strands of my hair behind my ear and very slowly freeing my lip with his thumb. Unfortunately at the exact time he does that I lick my lip and catch his thumb at the same time. I hear a sharp intake of breath and look into his eyes, eyes that are now staring at my mouth. My body suddenly goes on high alert and I feel every hair stand on end. The moment’s rudely interrupted by the waitress arriving with our coffee.
I’m both disappointed and relieved so I quickly pick up my coffee and take a sip as a distraction. Shit it’s too hot. I stick my tongue out and chant, “Hot, hot, hot.” Declan bursts out laughing but it doesn’t last long. Becoming all serious he suddenly reaches over, grabs my head with both hands and puts his lips to mine. All the while keeping his eyes open to gage a reaction.
I’m stunned, I wasn’t expecting this. His lips are firm yet so soft. His tongue licks my lip where I burnt it. It’s so gentle, soothing even and it makes every inch of my body tingle. He moves away but keeps his hands on my face whilst looking into my eyes. “Does it feel better now Izzy?” His eyes burn tracks across my whole face.
I can’t look away, I’m lost in his eyes.
