A bit of romance

(Because I'm a girl, and sometimes, I have to remind myself of that)

The sunlight came from behind him, almost blinding her. He stepped to the side, casting a shadow on her face as he grinned. "Better?"

"Better," she affirmed, her voice soft as she smiled up at him. His features were harder to make out at this angle, but she knew those blue eyes well, and they could make her melt.

"Good." He studied her face as she studied his, and she could feel that familiar sensation in her chest - a tingling, fuzzy feeling that started below her breastbone and radiated upwards, until even her teeth tingled. She knew what was going to happen next, and she found herself holding her breath. He leaned forward slightly, and she found herself rising to her tiptoes to meet him halfway. Their lips met, and for a moment, the whole world stopped spinning.

All of those moments earlier in the day, when it seemed that time was conspiring against them, making an hour seem like minutes, were balanced out in that instant. Nothing else mattered - she was no longer aware of the traffic alongside them, the pedestrians giving them sidelong glances. She was simply in his arms, kissing him. Her arms wrapped around his waist of their own accord, and his returned the favor. The world melted away, until it was just the two of them, wrapped in a warm ball of sunlight.
