ARGH! This was hard to choose. And, believe me, I'm not one for having a lot of kissy love scenes, but my favorite couple is Cove and Sara, so I knew I wanted to give you a scene from their story. Cove and Sara have that wonderful connection, the one where you just KNOW they are in love, you don't need all their kisses. This is the continuation of the previous post on EMOTION for the I'm Hearing Voices Blogfest. You can find that HERE!
“After everything you would think that?” she asked. “We would talk of our futures, early into the morning, Cove! And you still thought I didn’t want to see you?"
“If I had married, what would you have thought?” he asked. Sara wanted to respond, but she couldn’t say anything—she knew how she would feel. Hurt. Lost. Angry.
“I heard of your engagement on the day I returned from sea. It was the worst news I had ever heard. You have no idea how I felt—no idea!”
He was angry—the pain of her abandonment had built for so long. He barely let himself acknowledge how much it bothered him. Until now. Now, Sara was the one who would receive all his anger, and the only one who had his love.
“You didn’t even try to explain! You avoided me every chance you got! And don’t say I never tried to speak to you—plenty of times I invited Ben to my home in hopes of seeing you and always you were ill, always you had some excuse! Do not say I never tried Sara! The whole time you stayed with him, you were miserable and I was left to wonder why. Why? When I had always loved you.”
Sara stared at Cove for a long moment, her body shook with the knowledge of his adoration and love. She moved to close the gap between them quickly. Her lips touched his, he was lost. He pulled her to him, his fingers locked in her hair. His lips moved against hers clumsily but hungrily—so long, he had wished to taste the sweetness of her lips. She was warm; the fire of her body fueled her kiss, her passion.There you have it. Maybe not as steamy as you'd hoped, but that's my type of love scene! lol.
Happy Valentines Day!!! :D
