Velvet Roses Ch. 02byvirgofemme©
She felt herself melt as he sensually caressed her cheek with the pad of his thumb, and as he slowly moved in for a kiss, she tilted her chin upward.
His lips felt warm and soft, and as his silky tongue probed her mouth, she released a husky moan. Deeply passionate, the kiss left her weak with desire, and just like a delicious appetizer, it whet her appetite for the main course.
The oral embrace they shared left their lips moist and swollen, and as they pulled back to gaze at one another, each saw the reluctance that was in the other's eyes.
As was customary whenever they kissed, Jeneda was left with a fierce craving for more, and for one impulsive moment, she almost invited him up to accompany her upstairs.
"I really like spending time with you," he said.
"I like spending time with you, too."
"Let's do this again soon, okay?"
She nodded, yet instead of pulling out of his embrace, she stayed put, intertwining her fingers in his soft, wavy locks. Somewhere along the way of staring into each other's eyes, they retreated from each other, and once she was inside the lobby with the glass door separating them, she offered Dane a wave goodbye. He gave her one of his own, then returned to his Toyota hybrid, which was double parked at the curb.
Experiencing that rush of endorphins that came along with entering a new relationship, Jeneda made her way to the elevator, and upon reaching it, pressed the button to go up.
*It's not a relationship yet, though*, she thought as the elevator beeped, alerting her of its arrival. They were just seeing each other, hanging out, testing the waters.
She told herself this as the doors closed shut, and as the elevator moved upward, she came to the realization that she was moving into uncharted territory. The only question was, would she venture in deeper, or stick to the shallows?
