What my mom doesn't know won't hurt her right? I'm not supposed to talk to strangers - you're a stranger though...Wait! What's your name?! If you tell me your name we won't be strangers anymore! I'm sure we can be good friends with no time at all!
There is a fear in Slightly’s eyes when he does kiss her, though. He fears he doesn’t understand what he’s doing, he doesn’t know if he’s pleasing her, he doesn’t know how to please her further than simple lip touches. That’s how he had heard it in stories, but he didn’t…understand how it could break curses. How it could be…special.
And he feared that came across in his kisses.
It’s been at least a month since their last kiss, and Slightly is starting to think that they can’t wait more months for a singular kiss. So when he comes home that night he pulls his bag off and enters into their small house - it’s falling apart, but there’s nothing they can do about it. And really it’s not even their’s, it’s her’s. He lives in an even rougher house with the other boys and Peter, but sometimes he stays over at her place.
The apartment is brightly lit (a sure sign she’s home) and he can look over all of her odds and ends she’s collected, smiling at some of them because they make absolutely no sense to him.
But they make perfect sense for her.
Looking over at the doorway to the bedroom he makes his way over and stops when he reaches the doorway, watching her brush her hair in the mirror and then slowly approaches, placing a hand on her shoulder to let her know he’s there. Leaning down he presses his lips, shyly, to her cheek in a quick movement. Tenderly his fingers move, though, to take her chin in his hand and gently turn her face to his, pressing lips to lips in the same manner he’s done time and time again.
This time though, he’s determined to make it count, and so he carefully, surprisingly for the usually reckless boy, flicks his tongue out over her lips and then slowly pulls away and a boy-ish grin creeps over his features before leaning in for another.
I'm a believer and I want to help others see the light.
