just one thing after another
"I got you something." He took the chain out of his pocket and hoped it wasn't messed in a knot of some kind. It unwound and she said nothing for the longest time. "Well, uh, I guess." It just wasn't coming out right. It sounded so lame and kind of silly. "Do you want to um, wear my senior ring?"
He watched her smile. She caught the ring in her hands then.
She kissed him on the cheek then, but she hesitated as if she'd over reacted.
"Its nice." She examined it, what she could make of it under the lights of the parking lot. Amber looked back at him. His fingers touched her face then, and he couldn't imagine anyone quite as extraordinary as her. A part of him felt she might be too good for him, but he couldn't help but be happy. He kissed her then as if this was something tender and sincere. He hoped he could be the best he could be for her. Of course, he knew it the moment he touched her lips with his that he was the first guy she'd ever kissed. It shocked him, initially. At the same time, he liked the idea too. He smiled more.
She kissed him back which made him want to kiss her more. Really, it was addictive. He wasn't sure he wanted to leave the parking lot, anytime soon.
