Kiss Scene


This is a kissing scene from the fourth book I wrote. Enjoy!



She pushed her dripping hair from her forehead and scowled. “Leave with them, Golmarr. I don’t want you here. You will never see a horse again! You will not be the Horse Lord!” Lini cried.

“I know what I will not see, and what I will not be! I have thought that exact thing hundreds of times. This is what I want to be!” He pointed to his short hair and shirtless torso.

“You hate this place!” Lini said.

“I am staying."

“No. This is my island, and I say you must go."

“Your being stupid, Lini. You know as well as I do that if I leave, you will be alone for the rest of your life. I am not going,” he persisted.

“I can handle being alone. I like being alone! I want to be alone!” She didn’t mean to yell. “Go back to Glennis. I don't love you any more.” It was a lie, but if anything would convince him to leave, that was it.

“No. You can take your heart back, that’s fine. But you can’t make my choices for me. I left you once and that was the biggest mistake I ever made. I will not do it again."

"I hate you," she said, turning her back to him, and stormed away.

“Lini stop!” Golmarr commanded. She froze and watched his tall shadow approach. And then he stood behind her. He grabbed her shoulders and forced her to face him.

“I… Will… Not… Leave… You! Not ever! I am empty without you!” he yelled, shaking her shoulders with each word. “I don’t care if you pretend I don’t exist, or if you hate me! I have already made my choice and—“

His touch was too much. Lini grabbed his short, sea-soked hair in her hands and forced his face to hers. She kissed him, pulling his lips hard against her own. He wrapped his arms around her waist and lifted her from the ground.

It felt so right being in his arms. Everything about him seemed to fit against her, to match, to harmonize. He set her back on the ground, but her mouth refused to relinquish his. She grabbed him more securely behind the head and pressed her body against his, as if afraid he might try to leave.

Finally, with great force, he pushed her away enough to gasp a ragged breath of air. “Lini!” he said between breaths. “Why didn’t you do that the first night on the boat?” He stared at her for a moment before asking, “So I guess this means that I can stay?"

I guess so! What a romantic scene. Love/hate relationships are the best.

Christina Lee said...

Haha! I love this. I want to know all the details though. Why is Lini trying to get him off the island? My dang curiosity sure gets in the way of fully enjoying these great snippets!

Mmm...yummy! I love it when the girls take charge and surprise the guys. It's almost better than chocolate:)

Awesome! I love how intense it is, and then that last line had me laughing. :D

Diana Paz said...

I loved the last line too... and when she grabbed his sea-soaked hair and went for it! Yeah!!

Girl with One Eye said...

Oh yeah, she just jumped right in there. I like it a lot! I's like she ate crow, I want to be alone and then smackaroni, kiss on the lips!

Amber Tidd Murphy said...

I agree -- love the intensity and then the comic relief of the last line.

Also, it makes me want to go to the beach and kiss a boy. :)

Okay, I was very confused when this post showed up in my inbox this morning. But then I read Elana's from yesterday (which showed up an hour later) and it all made sense. Great kiss! I've been reading so many kiss scenes this morning that I can't wait for my husband to get up. :D

Here's the link to mine.

I enjoyed that excerpt. Now I'm wondering what happened before and after.

...and, in the screen version, this moment is soundtracked by 'Moth's Wings' by Passion Pit.

Nice.
