More than just a Kiss Blogfest

Of Oak and Dragons

This conversation takes place after the kiss between Leah and Ruen. A snoopy preternatural rapier is listening in on the conversation.

“What about you?”

“Um, what?” Ruen's focus came back to me.

“You kissed me. Why?”

“It seemed like the thing to do." He rolled his eyes as if it should be obvious.

I stared until he fidgeted with a bit of grass clinging to his jeans, brushing it off as if his life depended on it. “I don’t know why,” he said at last. “Wanted to, I guess.”

My sour expression caused him to make an impatient sound.

“Seriously?” he said. “That’s your biggest worry right now, that I kissed you?”

I huffed. The sheep across the fence were eyeing us as if we had three heads.

“Did you like it?” I asked the sheep. They didn't look like they gave a damn.

When he didn't speak, I hazarded a glance. He was grinning. “It wasn't bad,” he said, cocking his head. “But I don’t have anything to stand against it so I wouldn't know.”

“You've never kissed a girl?” I was incredulous.



Gawd, the Rapier groaned in my head, this has to be one of the most disgusting conversations—

“Did you want to try it again?” he asked laughing. “Just so I can compare it?”

“Oh, be still my beating heart.” Jackhammer, more like.

His eyes danced then dropped to my mouth.

“Besides,” I said, hurriedly. “Right now, I’m the best kisser you've ever had.”

“Oh, yes. I can truly say that was the best experience I've had.”

“Why did you do it?”


  1. She doesn't seem impressed. Now that's a blow to the ego.

  2. Ha! So why did he do it? Teen hormones is my guess. LOL. Hey, just posted a review for you on goodreads. Heading to Amazon now.

  3. ooh loved this snippet, especially when the Rapier complains in her head how disgusting the conversation is. :D Oh Ruen you cheeky fellow.. Love the way he asks if Leah wants to try again so he can compare :D

  4. What a fun scene! I loved the dialogue and the rapier. Hehehe! Nice tension too. Thank you for participating in the blogfest!

  5. I can't help but feel sorry for the rapier. Must suck being an object and unable to leave certain situations.

    And he's going about it all wrong. Girl asks if you liked the kiss, you say 'yes', or a variation thereof.

  6. Love the humour! “Oh, be still my beating heart.” Jackhammer, more like.Ha ha. Wouldn't like to be the rapier though.

  7. Now that's a first kiss about to be a second or third. Well, maybe. Lovely!

  8. This totally got me giggling (In a good way, promise!). Very fun!

  9. What a fun conversation to read! Loved it!

  10. How fun is it to see what happens after the first kiss, but before the next one? Very fun conversation!


Your Turn. Don't Be Shy
