Would you prefer something sweet?

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 it was okay. This was fine. She’d felt it was a moment for kissing, and she’d gone for it, and she was confident that had been the right move. Then again, Leo was still kind of grumpy when Myffi mentioned Nolan - she’d have thought a bit of kissing would have cheered him up! - so dismissing Nolan had clearly been the right move as far as Leo was concerned. Myffi made a note somewhere in the back of her mind to catch up with the Aquila again soon, to apologise for inviting him to join them and then just practically telling him to go away again. She hadn’t been very welcoming, especially as she had totally arranged and invited him to the event, and especially as Nolan was her most dedicated AgriClub member.

It transpired that Nolan, Leo, and Myffi were all in agreement that Nolan could take care of himself. “But I require a little more attention,” Leo said, firmly securing it. Myfanwy was happiest when she was making improvements to her environment: sometimes that was as easy as looking after others and bringing them pleasure. Leo wanted her attention, and she was delighted to focus on him completely. His fingers on her wrist caused Myffi to shiver, but in a good way, like a gentle Autumn breeze playing across her skin when the final rays of sun dropped below the horizon. She barely heard Nolan’s parting comment as Leo’s fingers wove between hers, and he brought his lips closer again. Myffi caught them with her own, and kissed him with more interest and determination than before.

She didn’t know whether this was just two friends trying something new, or if there was more to it than that. Did Leo fancy her? She’d never really thought about that. Maybe he just felt that a bit of kissing would be fun? He’s not wrong. Ultimately she decided that right now it didn’t matter, because right now both of them seemed totally okay to keep enjoying each other's company without needing to talk about it. Myffi turned her body in further towards Leo’s, drawing in a little closer, and vaguely registered through a pleasant haze of contentment that - in her own estimation, at least - her bonfire and buffet was a huge success.

    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
