Let’s add a twist
Tue Jul 24, 2018 04:48

This felt like a moment. There was a beautiful dusk, and a crackling bonfire, and Leo was super close. They’d been close before, looking at the same page in a textbook, or even closer, when Leo had adjusted something or other about Myffi’s grip or her posture when she was on a broomstick, but nothing that felt like this. This was new; this was intimate. Myfanwy gazed into Leo’s eyes, and he looked back into hers, and this was totally a moment. She just wasn’t sure what to do with it.

Obviously she could kiss him, and that was compelling, but their friendship had never been like that. Leo had been grumpy, and Myffi had made him smile, and that had made her happy. That was about how all their interactions had ever gone, only gradually the grumpiness had been shorter lived, and the smiling had come more easily. Leo hadn’t ever given Myffi the impression that he wanted to kiss her, or that she should kiss him, so she didn’t want to go and mess things up between them. He was one of her best friends - possibly the best friend, if she had to pick one, and she didn’t want to spoil that. If this was just the dusk and the bonfire and the brownies and nothing else, then she should respect their friendship and not do anything foolish.

Then Leo’s eyes dropped from her eyes to her lips, and Myffi thought i uffern â hynny. He was already very close so she didn’t have to move far to press her lips against his. A moment later she drew back to judge his reaction, muttering, “Os gwelwch yn dda,” as her eyes danced mischievously.

“Oh we mustn’t forget Nolan,” Myffi said suddenly, remembering in that moment that there was another body beside her. She had totally just gestured for him to join them and then completely ignored him to kiss someone else. Not that she thought Nolan had come over expecting to be kissed. Myffi hadn’t been expecting to be kissed, either. But she did do some kissing and it was fun, and she wanted to do more. Nolan might enjoy some kissing too, but Leo probably did not want him to join in. He didn’t play well with others. Well this was a conundrum.

Myffi turned back to Nolan with an apologetic smile. “Take as many brownies as you want,” she said, and patted his thigh vaguely in a placating gesture. Maybe Nolan could go find someone else to kiss if he wanted to; he was very attractive, it probably wouldn’t be hard for him. Myfanwy decided she’d rather just stay here with Leo, actually. She turned her attention back to him and reassessed, “Nolan can take care of himself.”

          Leo’s head was spinning and it had little to do with the brownies. Myffi had just kissed him. Of course Leo had wanted Myffi to kiss him but now that it had happened he wasn’t sure what to do about... more

            Leo’s reaction was just to sort of look at her. Myffi guessed that, like her, he was trying to figure out what this new twist was all about. Then he laughed a bit, albeit nervously, and Myffi decided ... more
