She grinned knowingly and laughed. There were probably better titles to assign than kissing virgin, but she couldn’t help it. It was such a good, funny, accurate thing to say. He’d never been kissed before, so he was a kissing virgin. Past tense, of course, because Marissa just helped him take care of that. And it was a really nice kiss. It didn’t feel awkward, or forced, or unimportant. It meant something. She wasn’t sure what, but it was something, and that was exciting. Her heart fluttered again in her chest, and she didn’t bother telling it to calm down.

Armaan was set to get some last minute stuff for the party. She could probably trust him to do it on his own. There was only a thirty percent chance that he’d mess it up, and she’d have to return whatever he got later.

Deciding that these things could definitely be put on hold for the moment, Marissa leaned in. This time, she initiated the kiss. Marissa worked very hard not to come across as too pleased with herself, and she kept most of that at bay. She was a bit preoccupied with that afternoon’s surprise after school activity. She was quite content with continuing until Danny called it quits, or they were interrupted, or whatever else could stop them. Right now, Marissa was fine where she was.
