He moved slowly, waiting for her to turn back to him before taking the chance to kiss her. Her lips were like silk, but her mouth was on fire beneath his own. He could taste the sweetness of the herbal tea she drank amidst the electric energy that seemed to pour from her into him. Nathan had imagined what she would be like beneath his touch countless times but nothing he dared to dream came close to what he was experiencing. He could not tell how long the kiss lasted. It could have been a second or it could have been an hour as he lost all sense of himself before his brain began to work again.
It took an effort of strength he barely possessed to pull away from her. And when he did all he wanted to do was kiss her again. But he took a step back as all of the reasons why this was a bad idea came rushing back to him.
