This is what having a boyfriend is like, Beth beamed inside as she gazed at Harvey while they drove back to his house. A man, an experienced adult, not a high school boy learning the ropes of life, held her hand, massaging her fingers with his. As her conversation with Lucy replayed in her head, she realized how wrong faulting him for his past was. All those things he’d been through molded him into the man sitting next to her. Life had dealt him a losing hand, and he turned the card game around. He may have been a little broken, but who wasn’t?
“I’m so glad Leslie didn’t stay behind to badger us,” Beth said. “I can’t stand people like her.”
“Those who think everyone owes them something. She’s not a good person.” She didn’t want to waste time around anyone who brought others down.
Harvey parked Beth’s car right behind his. He unlocked his seatbelt and rested his elbows on the console. “Beth, I think you may be the nicest person I’ve ever met.” Tilting his head forward, he pressed his warm lips against hers. “I’m enjoying our time together.” He kissed her again.
She wanted to tell him she thought the same thing, but she couldn’t speak. The moment his mouth was on hers, her body surrendered, her muscles weakened. In the few make out sessions she had in her past, none compared to a simple kiss from Harvey.
He unlocked from her lips and placed his hand on her neckline. “My dad isn’t home. Do you want to come in?”
“Yes,” escaped her before her brain even had a chance to register what going inside meant. Harvey’s right cheek puffed up as his lips curled into half a smile. Only the two of them would be in the house, Harvey’s house, alone, no one able to interrupt them. Her pounding heart had to quiet down before she passed out, and her nerves needed to calm about a hundred notches.
Bullet greeted them, his tiny, forceful physique relaxing Beth slightly. “Hey buddy,” Harvey scratched the dog’s head. “Let me get you something to eat and some water in your bowl.”
Beth followed Harvey into the kitchen and waited while he fed Bullet. The minute after he set Bullet’s dish down, he ran to her and put his arms around her. The moment she had been waiting for since she first saw his rippling body and messy hair was here. Her head started to float, the sound of the clock ticking getting further away until the gentle caress of his lips grazed her. She allowed his tongue into her mouth, so tender and inviting. His hand slid down her thigh, and as he kept kissing her, her body throbbing.
He pulled away. “Did you like that?”
Silly question. She didn’t doubt he was the best kisser in the world. “Yes,” she whispered. “I did. Don’t stop.”
