Saturday is upon us again, which means it is time for another My Sexy Saturday! If you aren’t familiar with My Sexy Saturday, it is a chance for writers to share 7 words, 7 sentences, or 7 paragraphs of their writing, based on a particular theme each week.
This week the theme is ‘Our Sexy Love’, and I have chosen an excerpt from an untitled WIP, focusing on a polyamorous foursome. This scene happens after Amelia’s new love interest, Harrison, has been punched by her ex-boyfriend. They have been taking their time getting to know each other, and haven’t even kissed yet, but the tension growing between them is overwhelming, to say the least.
“Can I do anything?” Amelia asked quietly.
“You are already making it feel better,” Harrison whispered, he knew it was probably a cheesy comment, but the words were out before he could stop them.
Amelia cupped his face with both hands and before he realised what was happening she leaned in and lightly kissed just beneath his eye. She repeated the action, this time kissing the edge of the bruising on the outer corner of his eye, and then again just above his eye. When she moved to kiss his cheek again, Harrison tilted his head up and rather than feeling her lips against his cheek, they brushed almost imperceptably against his lips. Their eyes connected and Harrison swallowed nervously, awaiting her next move, hoping like hell she wouldn’t climb off his lap and leave. He was terrified he had read the situation wrong and had crossed the line.
