Excerpt from Curses Beneath Her Feet!

That moment, right before a kiss–you know what I’m talking about.  🙂

It took her a few moments to realize that she wanted to kiss Benjamin–she wanted it more than she had ever wanted anything.  But–Ben was her best friend, and they never thought of each other that way.  She knew he was handsome, sure, and had even thought it fitting when the other girls at school had taken to calling him “Hot Ben” to differentiate him from all the other Bens in their class.  But she had never seen him as more than a friend. Kissing him was dangerous.

But now, with him standing so close in the darkness as the rain drummed overhead–maybe it was worth the risk. 

He leaned a whisper closer, his lips a breath away from hers.  Her eyes fluttered closed once more and she sighed softly.  For a few, countless seconds she heard nothing but the beating of her own heart, and then–


The pounding on the door was barely audible over the newest rumble of thunder, and Coralee jumped nearly a foot in the air, so taken aback was she by the sudden interruption.  The electricity that had been flowing between them snapped with anger, making her heart pound in an odd, heavy cadence.
