She had arrived at the empty house, contemplating all the memories that resided in those walls. It was colder than usual, she felt as if the night could feel her emptiness and manifested itself through the weather! As the hours passed the degrees dropped. Leaves gracefully fell and although it was dark the moon allowed Auttum to shine through. It dawned on her that maybe the moon also came out to say her own goodbyes to yet another season. She was sitting on the wooden porch staring up above gazing at the stars thinking of him. He startled her as he spoke. "Maddie, what are you doing here?" Cesar asked with a puzzled look on his face. "Just came to say my last goodbyes to this house, I had unforgettable times here, you know." He admired her obvious beauty as he had always silently done. "And you? Where's Susie?" "I felt a sudden urge to come by, oh and she's working late again tonight." Cesar replied. Maddie noticed an acute hint of his nonchalant tone towards her questioning about his girlfriend. They sat near each other, it was noticeable how uncomfortable they acted almost too shy to speak, to see eye to eye for too long! Cesar noticed Maddie shivering so he put his arm around her of course this act was all impulse. It surprised both of them! "thank you I was freezing." said Maddie he just nodded. This simple and endearing gesture made her heart beat a little faster.
Let me explain what Cesar saw whenever he looked at her. Maddie had deep sensual eyes what most people refer to "bedroom eyes" when truly looking at them you would want to lose all self control and give in to her enchantment. Her complexion was velvety-like, her voice soft and silky, rosy cheeks and full luscious lips. Dark, long auburn hair. As for her body type only the word voluptuous could best describe. Needles to say he was attracted to her. There were occasions when he dared to compliment her but it made for an awkward moment. "Let's go for a walk?" she asked, "sure why not maybe we'll get warmed up a bit." There was a trail leading to a few fountains along the way, the trees though almost bare had a few golden leaves left. The air smelled of pine and apple cinnamon maybe this time of year always does. She slowly moved in closer and hung onto his arm, scared to see his reaction she kept her eyes on the ground. They both know this attraction is a forbidden one. It isn't fair to their companions. "It's really cold tonight huh?" Cesar attempted to make small talk. He was horrible at it, typical weather related topic that pops in everyones head when they don't know what to say. "Yeah, I should have worn a jacket." she mumbled. They came to a stop in front of a fountain, lit with different colored lights such a beautiful sight it was. She turned to look into his eyes and whispered "hold me" without hesitation as if in a trance he found himself hugging her tightly. Mesmerized by her sweet scent. Both of her hands caressed his long flowing locks, "Maddie don't, please stop." he softly pleaded with hardly any conviction left "Why? My hands are cold and I've always wanted to play with your hair." she confessed "I won't be able to control myself." These words came tumbling out of his mouth he had no intention of revealing his weakness towards her! She cautiously looked up at him wondering if he meant what she thought. Deep down she was hoping for it. "I wish he would!" her mind screamed! Cesar let out a quiet moan fighting with his own will to control the overpowering temptation of her lips. The seconds standing so close locked in a controversial state of mind seemed eternal. Both heart beats seemed to have the same rythym completely in sync. Finally their logic no longer mattered they were acting solely on their affection their undeniable attraction. He leaned in carefully as if not to break her, caressing her soft cheek, lifting her chin up to look at him reluctantly she obliged and even though the weather was almost unbeareable, in each others arms they found all the warmth they had unknowingly been searching for. Cesar continued his way down to her neck, pulling her closer and tighter whispering in her ear "You're beautiful you know, I've thought of this moment many times never thinking it could happen." Maddie was trembeling in anticipation, in disbelief of all this being real almost certain it was another one of her daydreams. She breathed heavily and questioned "Is it really happening?" He responded with light kisses on her cheek, confirming the reality of something that up to that moment had only existed in their wildest dreams. Her eyes tightly shut waiting for what seemed eternal until FINALLY their lips once and for all met.... THE FORBIDDEN FIRST KISS.
