Once they reached the fountain, Breckin plopped down on the garden bench and guided him to her side. He gladly sat, anxious to talk, but his mind emptied as she wrapped her fingers around his hands.

“I’m nervous, too,” she said bashfully.

“Really?” he said, surprised. He assumed she had dated many guys and would be experienced.

She giggled. “I really like you, Bronwyn.” Looking into his eyes, she leant forward and kissed his cheek.

Bronwyn’s heart thumped quickly and his temperature rose dramatically. He endeavoured to return the kiss but instead bumped into her chin. Did the ale make him fumble, or was he truly awkward around girls? “Sorry.” He felt his face flush and thanked the dim evening light for concealing it from her.

She snickered and said, “That’s okay. Let me help.” She gripped his chin firmly and kissed his mouth. Her free hand held the front of his shirt, so he couldn’t pull away.

By the time they separated, Bronwyn was gasping for breath. His first kiss! It had arrived so quickly he hadn’t had time to think about how to hold his lips. She must have enjoyed the kiss, judging from her expression. Feeling more confident, he slid closer and put his arm around her shoulders.
