Okay, so cosmogirl7481 talked me into writing a drabble based on a pic prompt. I have never written anything like this and I can't believe I'm about to share this with y'all. Here goes nothing…

I put my hand on top of his and twined our fingers. I don't know where the sudden burst of courage came from, maybe it was the tequila. It was totally the fucking tequila.

There was no turning back now, I had made the first move. A million thoughts ran through my head and when I finally stopped to try and process them all, I realized he hadn't moved away. His hand was still there, his fingers still slid between mine. I silently asked tequila for one more shot of courage, seeing as this was all her goddamn fault, she owed me.

I turned to look at him and saw the smirk I had seen a thousand times before. But when I looked into his

eyes I saw something I had never seen before. Or something I had never let myself see. I saw love. And not the, "you're a really cool chick and you're my friend" kind of love. The kind of love that takes your breath away and knocks you on your feet. It's a good thing we were both sitting on a counter.

We stared at each other for what felt like hours and I had to break the silence.

"We're holding hands." I blurted. Way to go, Captain Obvious. Jesus, what's next, "The grass is green and oh, by the way, the sky is blue?"

"I know we are and you know what else?" he asked.


"We're about to be kissing."

With that, he leaned over and kissed me in a way that made it impossible for us to ever be "just friends" again.

Thanks so much for reading!

Also, thank you to cosmogirl7481 for the pic prompt, for believing in me and for being your amazing self. ILY.
