NaNoWriMo Novel: Ch.3 Goodnight "Kiss"
“Hazel?â? A voice came from the other side of my door, followed by a knock.
“Yeah?â? I call out. “Come in.â?
The door opens and Edwin is standing in my doorway. He takes one look at me and immediately looks away, a blush creeping up his neck.
“It’s okay for you to look at me…â? I say slowly. Cautiously he returns his eyes to mine, locking them there and never faltering from them. “You can sitâ?
He sits gingerly on the edge of my bed, looking totally uncomfortable.
“Hazel, I just came in to say goodnight…â? He says, looking in my eyes again.
“Oh…â? I say, disappointed. “Okay.â?
Edwin stands and comes over to me. He leans over me and kisses me on my forehead. “I’ll see you in the morning.â?
I sit there, shocked. What was I? A child?! I watch as Edwin leaves, closing the door behind him. Not a minute later, the door reopens and Amber walks in with a smug look on her face.
