“I have something for you.” He had moved heaven and earth to pull this together.
“You do?” Her eyes glittered in surprise.
“Yup. Close your eyes and hold out your hands.” He couldn’t wait to see what she thought.
Libby obeyed. Her dark eyelashes lay against her rosy cheeks. His heart beat in anticipation. He
reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out a white plastic bag, then glanced up. Her closed
eyes changed to little slits.
“Hey, stop peeking!”
Libby squeezed her eyes closed and laughed. She held out her hands and waited. Peter pulled the
slim item out of the bag and placed it in her hands.
She peered at the shiny device and then back at him in disbelief. “You gave me a cell phone?”
She stared at the gift. “You gave me a cell phone!” This time she yelled it.
Her excitement touched him. “It seemed like a good idea. You didn’t have a phone number to
give me, and I really missed you. It’s gonna get harder to see you. I thought this way we could
stay in touch and actually talk whenever we want.”
She closed her hand around the precious phone and turned pensive.
“Is something wrong?” He wondered what could have upset her.
“I don’t know if I should accept this.” She gazed up at him with large doe eyes. He couldn’t
believe this. She needed to take the phone.
“We barely know each other, and, well…” Mischief lit her face, and he wondered what she was
up to. “We’ve never even kissed.”
Peter paused and took a good look at her. He’d been wondering how to sneak a kiss; she just
made it simple.
He tossed the umbrella aside and pulled her close. He let his fingers tangle in her wet hair and
lowered his mouth to hers. He kissed her long and slow, taking his sweet time. Cold rain trickled
down his neck as he savored each moment. Startled at first, Libby now matched his kiss. He
enjoyed each touch of her tender lips.
He slowly pulled away.
“Now can you take the phone?” His forehead rested against hers.
“Yeah, I think so,” she answered in a breathy voice.
“I’d better be sure.” Empowered by their perfect chemistry, he leaned in for more. Her body
melted against him. He wrapped his other arm around her and pulled her close.
“Wow,” she whispered, her eyes dark and smoky.
“Haven’t you ever been kissed before?” His eyes searched hers.
“Not like that.”
