Quoted and noted: On kissing

6 May

This description is so phenomenal I actually got out of bed to type it up.

“He was thinking about the first time he had ever seen Laura. He hadn’t even known her name them. She was Audrey Burton’s friend. He had been sitting with Robbie in a booth at Chi-Chi’s when Laura had walked in a pace or so behind Audrey, and Shadow had found himself staring. She had long, chestnut hair and eyes so blue Shadow mistakenly thought she was wearing tinted contact lenses. She had ordered a strawberry daiquiri, and insisted that Shadow taste it, and laughed delightedly when he did.

Laura loved people to taste what she tasted.

He had kissed her good night that night, and she had tasted like strawberry daiquiris, and he had never wanted to kiss anyone else again.” ~ “American Gods,” by Neil Gaiman

So simple, but so poignant. I swear, I want to kiss Laura after that.
