Friday Fiction

I've been meaning to write something this month, but so much has happened since June. The brother got engaged (wedding's just 4 months away!) and work is a little too hectic at the moment. So, instead of doing a random post, here's something I wrote as part of a future assignment for DD's Travel Writing Bus.

He kissed me. Slowly. Still puzzled, my brain's refusing to register this. It doesn't help that the radio starts playing an inane song. 'Do I want this? Or not? I thought I always did but - stop thinking, woman!' It's been just two seconds and my mind's racing away as if to catch the Virar fast. 

He looked at me. Intense eyes. It was a conversation alright.
