Sealed With A Kiss

Carol’s First Kiss

Over thirty-six years ago, I went on my first date with Robert Joseph Kunz. My family and I were living in England at the time and I had just graduated high school. Not knowing what I wanted to do next with my life, I began working at the dining hall on the military base we lived on. Being one of very few single females, I was constantly being hit on by the guys, all except for Robert, who, even when we sat next to each other at the club one night, didn’t ask me to dance. I thought he wasn’t interested…until I got up to leave.
“May I walk you home?” a voice beside me asked above the loud music. It was Robert. 
Shocked, I agreed and we strolled the short distance to my house.
“Would you like to go out tomorrow night?” he finally asked after an awkward silence fell over us as we stood outside my front door. I nodded and he told me he would pick me up at 8. No kiss, not even an attempt at one. I walked into my house impressed, not depressed. Finally a guy who wasn’t all hands! 
The next night on a moonlit beach, with the waves gently lapping onto the sand, he kissed me!  Fireworks exploded and I instantly knew he was the one.
Eight months later, our lives were sealed with a kiss inside the military base’s chapel in front all of our friends and family. April 10th will be our 36th anniversary and I still absolutely love his kisses. :)

Cat and Ryan’s First Kiss

Cat had just shut her eyes when she heard a noise at her window. “Jewels, it’s about time you came back. You had me worried,” she said, grabbing her pink robe. Cat noticed the balcony was empty. A small rock hit the window from the outside, startling her. A dark shadow stood below and she could see by the moonlight, the figure wore a letterman’s jacket. After opening the window, she stepped out onto the balcony. 
“Cat! It’s Ryan,” he whispered forcefully, so that his voice would carry up to her.
“Ryan, what are you doing here? You’ll get into trouble! What about the curfew?” she asked confused.
“I don’t care about that! I was driving by and saw your dad carrying you into the house. I had to see you.”
“You were just driving by, at three in the morning?” Cat asked sarcastically.
“Yeah, can I come up?”
“Because I want to see if you’re all right! We’re friends aren’t we?” She nodded and motioned for him to come up as she sat down on the wrought iron bench. It seemed like only a second had passed before Ryan was standing in front of her.
How did he get up here so quickly? She thought to herself, still dizzy from all the tests at the hospital.
“Hey you’re looking really pale, shouldn’t you have stayed in the hospital?” Ryan asked as he sat down beside her and stared intently into her eyes.
“Is my hair a mess? Do I have something on my face?” she asked self-consciously wondering why he was staring at her.
“No, I’m looking at your eyes. Do you know your eyes are different colors? How stupid, of course you do. But I’ve looked at them before and never noticed.”
“Colored contacts, that’s my secret.  I just started wearing them this year. I didn’t want anyone to know about my defect. So I convinced my parents that I needed them.”
“Defect? But your eyes are so beautiful.”
“I…thank you,” she said, blushing.
“Are you sure you’re okay?” he asked softly, taking her hand.
“I’m fine really, I am. So did you go to the dance?” Cat asked, trying to change the subject.
“Yeah, I hung out with some of the guys. Not Isaac though. Amelia demanded that he be exclusively with her all night.”
“I thought Isaac was in charge,” she stated sarcastically.
“Since when are men allowed to be in charge?” Ryan replied, causing her to laugh. Combing her fingers through her hair, Cat’s laughter faded, and her eyes became serious.
“I want to thank you for-” she began, her eyes widening as Ryan’s face moved closer to hers. Her eyes closed as their lips touched, first with the lightest of pressure and when she didn’t protest, he pulled her closer. Cat felt herself becoming light headed again.

    Looks like Ryan knew he wanted that kiss before he got to Cat's! Great excerpt.

    I haven't had a first kiss yet, I say its because I'm so young :P, but in my mind I've had dozens. They all end with the biggest grin on my face and discreetly placed fist pumps.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. I haven't really experience a kiss! So there's no first kiss at all! But I had this dream just lately, when a girl kissed me without knowing who she is! She had a very soft lips! And when I woke up, I didn't remember her face. It's weird, romantic, and funny. I just don't know what to say! I wonder who she is. Perhaps I could write it into a book. LOL. I know you need someone who really experience a first kiss but I'm just telling you this romantic DREAM KISS I had! :D

  5. HONESTLY, I do NOT remember my first was soooo many years ago. I do remember the first kiss with my hubby on our first date. It was not auspicious...he was a little drunk and a sloppy kisser. A lot has changed over our 20+ years together.
