Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

He closes his eyes.
Our lips brush lightly.
"If you ask me to kiss you, I will," he says.
His fingers stroke the inside of my wrists, and I burst into flames.
"Kiss me," I say.

I just want grace. I want passion and heart and beauty and a sense of connection to the world. I also want to feel your breath on my neck like I can right now, and the heat coming off your hands and leg. I want to walk down the halls of the high school and instead of feeling nearly crushed by the bricks and tiles and masses of our bodies, pressing against me, pushing me deeper into myself, I want to smash the walls and people away so I can breathe under a wide-open-sky, with grass under my feet and the sun on my hair, and when I imagine that--when I sit here in the dark where I can see everything and imagine myself doing that--you're with me, and you're smiling, and I don't think I could have done it without you.

"Feel that?" Lukas whispers. How can I not? That flame between us, warm and bright, is like nothing I've ever felt before. Though the magic feels big, and shiny, and new, it's nothing compared to how I feel around him. How he makes me feel. How I want it to last.
