The last couple of weeks, I've been snippeting first kisses, and since it's February and Valentine's is coming up, it only seems appropriate to continue. Here's Flavian and Cathal's first kiss in The Artist's Masquerade from Flavian's point of view. (I actually posted a snippet of the lead up to and beginning of the kiss from Cathal's point of view a while ago. You can find it here if you missed it.)
Flavian froze, his mind going utterly blank the instant Cathal’s lips touched his.
Because Cathal was kissing him.
Cathal was kissing him. Flavian never, ever, expected it to happen, or for it to be like this. A passionate, uninhibited kiss with Cathal’s firm body pressing against his, pushing him into the unyielding surface of the door. Who would have thought that a man like Cathal would kiss like that? And for an instant Flavian drowned in it.
