Swoon Thursday (#254): Meet Cute

- From the book you’re currently reading, or one you just finished, tell us what made you SWOON. What got your heart pounding, your skin tingling, and your stomach fluttering

- Try to make the swoon excerpt 140 characters (or less), if you are going to tweet about it. Use the hashtag #YABOUND when tweeting

This week, my swoon is from Meet Cute (an anthology)!

"Do you want to be kissed?" he asks.

His words dig under my skin, tickling me and warming me from the inside out. "I don't know."

"You shouldn't die without experiencing it at least once." 

"Is that so?" I ask. "And are you going to be the one who helps me?"

"Only if you want - and I have the time right now. Normally, I'm quite busy and important. Can't you see? There are girls - and a few boys - lined up, wanting and wishing that they'd have the opportunity to kiss me. There should be a superlative called Most Kissable, and there you'd find me."

My eyes wander to his mouth. The pink of his lips reminds me of the insides of the conch shells Papa would bring back from the sea for my sister and me. If I were to paint them, I'd use sunset peach and a little ruby red and cream white.

"I've been told I'm a great kiss-"

I press my mouth to his, pushing the words back inside. His mouth is soft and tastes like he's been eating cherries.

This anthology is really cute! I especially love this scene from Dhonielle Clayton's short story, The Way We Love Here. =)
