First Kiss

That smile grew into something more. I found out that his name is Edward. He lives in Portland and is on vacation, too, like me. The paths that brought us to this beach seemed like fate. I am not one of those women that believes in love at first sight, but the sight of that smile made me feel like it could happen. In my past relationships, the best thing was that they didn’t end badly. We drifted apart and ended things. Simple like that. I had a feeling Edward was different.

From that initial meeting, I have gone out in two dates with Edward. The first one to a coffee shop, where we both drank black coffee for hours while listening to the live band playing. He walked me back to my house and asked me for my cell phone number. Before I fell asleep, he texted me and asked me if I wanted to go out for dinner tomorrow. When I replied with a yesand a smiley face, he asked where I wanted to go. I told him to just surprise me. He took us to this tiny whole in a wall thai place. We shared some Phad Kee Mao (5 stars). Later that night, he walked me to my house and gave me a kiss on the cheek. It was innocent and ever so sweet.

Tonight is our third date. He is bringing his dog, Riley, with us. I love dogs. We are doing something simple. Edward told me that he met some people that are having a bonfire. He met me at the exact spot where we met each other. The way that the sun was setting brought out the redness in his hair. Ever so slowly, I reached up to my toes, and did something I wanted to do since last night. When our lips met I knew things would change things for us. For starters, this wasn’t like the innocent kiss we shared last night but there was a tenderness to it. He kissed me slowly and brought his arms around my waist, pushing me closer to him. When I opened my mouth, his tongue teased my mouth gently. Then I felt it. Riley had somehow managed to jump on both of us, knocking us to the ground. We both laughed.

It was perfect.
