My Sexy Saturday – Valentine’s Day Edition

My Sexy Saturday – Valentine’s Day Edition

Happy Valentine’s Day!  One way I’m noting the day is by participating in the My Sexy Saturday blog hop – great indie authors sharing sexy moments from their books.  This week’s theme is a moment that shows how a couple is destined to be together forever, and I’ve got a moment from DREAM STUDENT.  This actually happens at Christmastime, but it’s a big moment – the first real gift that Sara and Brian give one another…

Brian takes a deep breath, and then looks down at the box in my hands.  I tear off the paper, and it’s a jewelry box.  I slowly, carefully pull it open, and inside it–oh, my God.

It must have cost a thousand dollars.  It’s a necklace, with a very fine gold chain and–at one glance I know it’s real, not just costume jewelry–a small, beautiful emerald.  I don’t believe he–I can’t–it’s the most amazing thing.  My legs are shaking; I don’t know how they’re holding me up.  My heart is racing, and I feel short of breath.  I have no idea what anyone else is doing.  His mother is saying something, and so is mine, but that’s just noise.

“I thought it would set off your eyes,” Brian says, and his is the only voice I can hear.  He takes the necklace out of the box and I don’t even realize I’m turning my head so he can put it on me until I’ve already done it.  He drapes it around my neck, and I shudder at his touch.  He closes the clasp, and the emerald hangs down, and I look at it.

It’s perfect.  He’s perfect.

I turn back to him, look up into his brown, brown eyes, and I throw my arms around him.  I feel the tears start to flow for the second time today and I bury my head in his neck.  I’m not sure how long we’re there like that.  It could be forever.  There’s nowhere else I want to be.

My brother’s voice brings me back to Earth.  “Let us get a look at it,” he says, and I very reluctantly let Brian go and turn to give everyone a better look at his gift.  There’s much ooh-ing and aah-ing, which is only right.

I turn back to Brian, and I whisper so only he can hear, “I love you!”  Holding myself back right now, not kissing him for all I’m worth in front of God and his family and everybody, is the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life, and that’s not an exaggeration.

You can get the book for FREE at Amazon, and it’s also available as a fantastic audiobook!
