From Alice's point of view, straight after their first date. Again, for the benefit of Shmeepea.

So we kissed, and yeah it was fantastic.  Our mouths fitted so well.  Almost perfectly.  His tongue gently checked my teeth and my lips, which made me feel electric.  It was a very good kiss.  Tastefully done too.  He didn’t clutch at my chest or ram a hand down my knickers.  He barely touched my arse.  But when he did he ran his fingertips over me.  The lightness of his touch.  I’m sure he gave me a tingle.  It was incredibly … sexy.  Like I say, no slobbering, no big fat tongueing.  Very adult.  I wanted him that night.  Yes, I fancy him.  I like him as well, which is strange: bit of a one off.  Even his self-depreciation is no longer so desperate.  He seems more at ease now.  His wit is easier.  I know he wanted me too.  Not self-aggrandisement.  A woman can tell.  Call it intuition, but I could feel something and, without being too crude, I happened to know that his wallet was in his back pocket.  Pressing myself against him I could just about discern the size and shape of him… not bad.  I could’ve asked him in.  But I didn’t.  I don’t think I should’ve because yeah, I like him and he likes me but I’ve managed to ruin things too many times before by opening my legs too soon.  Men are just so fucking ridiculous.  If they have a one night stand then wahey, well done, but woe-betide the poor girl – she’s obviously a slut or damaged goods or fucked up in some horrible way or other.  And as for a sexually predatory woman… well… I wish I could change the rules but it’s still a mans world and I have neither the energy nor the inclination to shift the world from it’s axis.

So we kissed, talked (outside, not even coffee. Or “coffee”.), kissed and arranged to see each other again.  Maybe I will not be so circumspect next time…

That was a pleasant surprise. I have not been able to find many shorts I can actually get through. Yours had breath, didn't read like it was chisled out of stone.
