He smiled that Mason smile that set me on fire all over. Then he put one hand on the
other side on the hospital bed and the other lifted toward my face. I waited, bated breath,
gulping, sweaty palms, fluttering eyes, the works. His face got so close before he stopped. I
thought he had decided against whatever he was doing he waited so long. I began to pull back in
disappointment, but he reached behind my neck gently and pulled me to him. The barest of
touches was the best way to describe our first kiss. It wasn't really a kiss at all. His bottom lip
barely brushed my top one. When he leaned back and opened his eyes, he must've seen the
confusion and frustration in my face.
He chuckled. "I just had to taste that coconut…" he licked his lips, "but I don't want to kiss
you when you've been angry at me and I messed up our date." He said 'date'. Like…a date. "I
want to kiss you when if we go another second without it, one of us will combust."
My breaths were raging. I tried to calm myself. "I…" I failed.
"I want to give you back your first kiss, the one that jerk stole from you. And I want it to
be something that even a coma can't make you forget."
