Mia rolled on her side and looked at Schooner. Reaching out, he took a long curl in between his fingers, playing with it. Here it was, finally the moment they were alone.

"C'mere" he said, pulling her head down on his chest as he continued to play with her curls.

She snuggled her face into his chest and pulled off her glasses, placing them out of the way. Mia looked up at Schooner and he smiled at her beautiful ombre green eyes. She blushed and he slowly rubbed her arm up and down, reassuringly.

This little devil, so outgoing and fearless, was actually so shy when it came to guys. Wild and innocent, Schooner thought. He wanted her to be his. And just the thought of that shot feelings of guilt through him. He was CJ's. Or so she thought. But what he was feeling toward Mia was something he'd never felt in his life. His heart felt like it was overflowing with emotion. He wanted to be with her every moment. He wanted to know everything about her. He wanted her in his arms all the time. By his side. Looking up smiling at him. Wanting him. He didn't know he could feel these feelings for someone else.

Bringing both arms around her, he hugged her tightly to him - so overcome with feelings. He kissed the top of her head and she looked up at him, a combination of yearning and fear of the unknown in her eyes. Smiling at her, he rubbed his nose against hers, which elicited a little giggle. This made him laugh and he kissed the tip of her nose.

"I think you've figured it out already," he smiled down at her.

"Figured out what?" she asked.

"That I'm crazy about you."

She blushed and buried her face in his chest, too shy to look into his eyes.

"God, she's adorable," he thought to himself.

"Mia, look at me."

She looked up, tentatively.

Smiling at her, he ran his thumb along her high cheekbone, then pushed a mass of curls away from her face. He brought his lips close to hers. "Really, really crazy about you, Mia. I want to be with you all the time. I never want to leave you at the end of the day."

"Then don't," she whispered.

He smiled, his lips up against hers and he could feel her returning the smile. Taking her face in his hands, he kissed her lips softly. She made a soft 'mmmm' sound which he felt immediately between his legs. He kissed her lips harder until she opened her mouth, letting his tongue slip in to find hers.

Mia's tongue met his, cautiously at first and then a little bolder in its exploration. She let her fingers rake through his thick luxurious hair, pulling him deeper into her mouth. The urgency of their kisses increased until they were both breathless.

Schooner pulled away and reached up to Mia's bed and pulled down her blanket and draped it over them. Her head was back on his chest and he kissed the top of her head again.

"Oh Baby Girl," he sighed, "you have no idea of what you do to me."

"It's smoochal," they both laughed.

She snuggled deeper into his chest as he wrapped his arms around her tighter and within minutes they both drifted off to sleep.

About the Author:

I must've been 5 or 6 when I started writing "stories". I would write them and hide them. Not wanting anyone to see my "secret" thoughts. I needed to write -even back then. Now I'm just not hiding them anymore. Is that a sign of maturity? Nah ....

Writer, photographer, insatiable wanderluster, edge-player, foodie, music addict, pop culture fanatic, animal lover, warrior for the rights of people and planet, and avid cusser (am a Native New Yorker, so very little offends me ... and if I am offended, it must be pretty freaking bad .. like bad grammar!).

I am big believer in signs and if we keep ourselves open, there are guideposts all along the way. Stay humble. Be true. Be you.

Life is not a dress rehearsal ...
