Kiss Me


“Kiss me.”

I look around and we’re alone, just the two of us.

“Kiss me.”

I shake my head. It’s not that I don’t want to, but we’re in my best friend’s basement and there’s this weird skeleton in the corner, one of those you’d see in biology class. This is in no way romantic. The party’s upstairs and the others could come down any time. I really don’t want them walking on us.

“Come on, kiss me.”

I smile slyly and slip away from the warm hands that have been holding me tight. I am NOT going to kiss my best friend’s… whatever they are right now. I just went down to find more booze, not drama.

So I run away with a bottle of JD in the hands, determined to forget this ever happened.

    Good story. I can imagine myself in that guys position and not wanting to kiss his friends girl and also not in front of a skeleton. It’s creepy. I guess he isn’t drunk enough yet.

  4. A great scene, Alixa. 🙂 I like how you’ve not actually specified a gender for either of the characters involved – I placed the narrator as a female until I read the other comments!

  5. Skeletons and romance… not usually a hand-n-hand proposition….

  7. Ooooh, I love your take on the photo prompt! And “I just went down to find more booze, not drama” is a fab line 🙂
