This week, my swoon is from The Falconer by Elizabeth May!
"[Redacted] looks at me, so still and quiet. I brace myself for his words, unsure of what he'll say. Terrified by what he'll say. He doesn't speak. Instead, he grasps me by the collar of my coat and presses his lips to mine. [Redacted] kisses me deeply, with an urgency I never thought him capable of. He kisses me like he knows he's going to die. He kisses me like the world is going to end.
I cling to his shoulders and tug at his jacket, bringing us closer. I want nothing more than to hold him and bury myself in his arms and forget everything. I want time to stop.
He pulls back and rests his forehead against mine. "I'm scared, too."
