A/N: I found a list of kisses under a Tumblr prompt and thought why the hell not? There will be more.

First Kiss

"Truth or dare?"


"Alright, let me see." Amy insisted on playing Truth or Dare this girls' night and had a list of questions and dares open on her phone. She had to select a good one for Penny.

'Improvise a rap about a person of your choice.' No. 'Put on your favorite song and dance like crazy.' She does that anyway. 'Flash someone and make it look like an accident.' That could be fun. Maybe later. 'Give the first person to enter the room a kiss.' Ooh that's good. Let's improve it.

"Ok. Penny, I dare you to kiss Sheldon."

Penny, who never balked at a dare and always took them seriously, nodded. She got up, rolled her shoulders, and walked out the door, closing it behind her.

Bernadette, having been dared to endure the remainder of the game with her glasses upside down, squinted at Amy, trying to focus. "I don't know if that's such a good idea."

"No," Amy said. "I've tried it before. It was not satisfying. I've read up on dares and everything I've read said 'the more embarrassing the better.' This will be great."

Once in the hall, Penny took a moment to consider her task. It wasn't the first time she'd been dared to kiss a guy. However, it was the first time the guy she was dared to kiss was Sheldon. Whack-a-Doodle extraordinaire. She had to tread carefully. So instead of barging into 4A like she normally would, Penny knocked before letting herself in.

"Hey Sheldon can I talk to you for a second?" she asked.

Sheldon muted the tv and shifted his body, and therefore attention, to face her. "I suppose."

"Great," she said. "So we're playing Truth or Dare and I've been dare to kiss you, is that alright?"

Sheldon shot to his feet, a look of outrage on his face. "It most certainly is not! How dare you-"

Penny didn't let him finish. Her asking was more the courtesy of telling him rather than actually asking, anyway. She put one hand on his shoulder and the other in his hair as she stood on her toes to reach him.

Her lips fastened to his and cut off his diatribe. She caught him mid 'you' so his lips were perfectly poised, and instead of pulling away or freezing completely, he just let it happen. He relaxed his lips and closed his eyes and let out the tiniest huff of air through his nose. Which, considering she was expecting him to pull away, or at the very least continue to talk against her lips, was reasonable.

It wasn't a long kiss, but when she pulled back her heart was thumping in her ears. Sheldon's eyes opened slowly and refused to focus on on thing, darting around. Finally they settled on her face. Willing her heart to quiet, she smiled. "Thanks, Sweetie!" And with that she turned and went back to her apartment.

Sheldon watched the door close behind her and swallowed.

Back over in 4B Penny took her place in the triangle once more.

"So how was it?" Bernadette asked.

Penny thought for a second, comparing it to her past experiences. "Y'know? Surprisingly not bad."
