It was a simple action, one that even I could compute. Quite honestly, I hadn't even thought about it.
Logically, I knew that it was an act of overwhelming emotion. I had just forgotten myself.
I kissed him. On the cheek, of course. Never on the lips.
That's forbidden, against the rules.
I didn't even realize what I had done until I stepped away.
I had mixed feelings about this. In a way, I'm thinking I had crossed a line. The line, I mean. The one we aren't allowed to cross. Even though that kiss had meant nothing.
To him, maybe.
I'm… a little frightened, too, I guess. I've never really done that before, just go up to someone and kiss them. I just don't want to lose control.
But also, I'm happy. I don't know for sure, but is that something an…average person would do? Kiss someone on the cheek for showing random compassion?
Does that mean something?
I couldn't bring myself to watch his expression, and I could feel myself going red.
