Official Kissing Day Blogfest

I'm not even close to being a consistant blogger or writer as all the others signed up for the "Official Kissing Day Blogfest" but here it is anyway, my kissing scene from my WIP. Thanks, Sherrinda for the fun idea!


Kate walked to the edge of the porch of the little bungalow while Kevin tipped the bellhop for depositing their luggage inside. She starred at the pinks and oranges flowing across the horizon. As the sun descended, the light moved the clouds and colors as though it was being painted as she watched.

She felt her beloved’s arms encircle her as he stepped close. They lingered there together watching the Painter create the most exquisite sunset either had ever seen. The sun held onto the horizon as if it was enchanted by the beauty of their love.

Kevin took Kate by the hand and led her to the door, swept her off her feet and escorted her inside the honeymoon bungalow. He sweetly placed her feet back on the floor, staring into her mesmerizing blue eyes, holding her so close she almost couldn’t breathe. Her hands were on his chest. She moved them slowly around his neck and pulled him ever so slightly to her and kissed him sweetly. The kiss was tender and sweet and light.

They both released their embrace still looking into each other’s eyes.

“Do you want to change?” Kevin said almost whispering.

“Oh,” Kate sighed, “I am so ready to get out of these fancy duds and into something a little more comfy!”

Kevin laughed. That was his Kate. Not serious for too long. He halfway expected her to change into shorts and flip-flops after all, they were in their own little beach bungalow, which would be perfect for flip-flops – Kate always made sure to wear the right shoes for every occasion. “What shoes were perfect for a honeymoon?” he wondered.

Kate took a bag out of her suitcase and headed for the restroom. “See you in a few,” she teased.

When the door had clicked behind her, Kate exhaled for the first time, it seemed, since she started walking down the aisle. They had had the perfect wedding and now she and Kevin were about to make love for the first time. Her heart was beating so hard and loud she was sure he could hear it through the walls. “I wonder if he’s nervous, too,” she thought.

“I’ve got to work fast and quiet,“ he thought as he readied himself and the bedroom for Kate. “I wonder if she’s as nervous as I am.”

“Shoes,” she thought, “I better not have forgotten the shoes!” She sighed as she held her Cinderella slippers to her chest. “Everything has to be perfect. Clear white slippers tonight, fuzzy high heels…tomorrow!” she giggled to herself.

“Okay,” he said to himself, “I got changed before she came out. That’s the main thing. Now for the surprise.” He tried to be quiet as he got the room ready for his bride. “A little bit of bubbly, check. Our song providing the perfect mood, check. Lilac scented candles, check. Lights turned down low, check.”

His heart skipped a beat as he heard Kate come into the bedroom. He had to remind himself to breathe as he stood gazing at a beautiful angel, dressed in a silken, white negligee and robe and yes, the perfect shoes, matching Cinderella slippers. Her hair was floating around her face and shoulders as she twirled around and turned to face him. “How did I get so lucky that such a woman would be willing to be mine forever?”

As Kate entered the bedroom, she was met with the sensuous, soft music of Etta James singing “At Last”, the song of their first dance and a fragrance of lilac cascading over the room. Each flicker of the candle light embraced every corner. And then there was Kevin, her love, waiting in a white robe beside a champagne bucket.

“Hi,” he said in a voice barely above a whisper, as they walked toward each other.

“Hi,” she whispered back when they met.

Kevin took her hand and led her to the champagne bucket, handed her the two champagne flutes provided as he had instructed. He reached for the bottle and said, “I hope it’s a good year,” and then presented the bottle for her approval – a big red-labeled, two litter bottle of Coke-a-Cola!

“My favorite bubbly!” she laughed, clapping her hands.

“I know how to treat my woman,” he replied with a smile.

They toasted each other and their marriage and sipped the cool liquid.

Kevin took the flutes and sat them down, took hold of Kate’s hands and leaned in to kiss her. Soft, tender his lips covered hers. His hands were a little shaky as he untied the ribbons on her robe and slid it off her shoulders to let it fall. “You’re beautiful,” he whispered as he caressed her in his arms. “I want our first time to be special,” he said as he reached for the belt to his robe.

“No, stop!”


“I mean, uh, I’m still thirsty. Let’s have some more coke.”

He caught her hand as she reached for the flutes. “It’s okay, Kate, I’m nervous, too,” he said. “Don’t worry. Trust me.”

She nodded nervously.

He let go of her hand and again reached for the belt on his robe. He untied it and ripped of the robe to reveal green, silk boxers with a big, yellow smiley face covering the entire front and a big, red heart covering the entire back. Kevin presented a runway walk that rivaled “The Next Top Model”!

After the shock, Kate laughed and clapped and egged him on, pretending to whistle and faint. “Leave it to Kevin to think of a way to make me feel at ease. Make me laugh…he knows me well!” she thought.

After a few more turns on the runway, Kevin sashayed over to Kate. He gathered her in his arms and held her close and said, “There is nothing you could do tonight that would embarrass you or me more that this. I love you, Kate.”

“I love you, too, Kevin.”

He brushed her hair from her face and touched his lips to hers with gentleness and passion and she surrendered into his arms.
