Then He Was Gone - SL Standish

By SL Standish

Cassandra sat down and leaned back against the oak tree and took a drink of her coffee, she closed her eyes replaying the recent events again, the pain in her heart still felt fresh.

Tears slid down her cheeks as she thought about how stupid she had been allowing Ryan to play her like a fool. When she thought about it the pain in her heart wasn't from heartbreak, it was from embarrassment. She was so angry with herself that she had made such a bad decision.

Cassandra wiped away her tears and took another sip of her coffee when Daniel appeared in front of her. They had been friends since grade school, he was her rock, and always there when she needed him without fail, without ever asking.

He sat down next to her and quietly asked, “Are you okay Cass?”

“I'll be okay Daniel thanks.”

“I hate to see you cry,” In fact it pained him to see her hurt. He had wanted her for years she was all that he dreamed of. “You know you have the most beautiful eyes when you smile. In fact Cass, you’re beautiful.”

“Oh Daniel,” She didn't know what to say, she blushed at the thought that he thought her beautiful.

Well no going back now Daniel thought to himself, so he reached over and took her hand then lightly kissed the inside of her wrist and held her palm against his cheek. Daniel felt his body harden just from that simple touch.

Daniel’s touch was so gentle, when she looked into his eyes she felt him looking deep into her soul. She could see longing in his eyes.

As she brushed her fingers along his jaw, she could not help herself as she moved closer. When she touched her lips to his, her eyes slid closed, as she tasted him for the first time. Her body was on fire, never had she felt such desire, and she needed all of him.

Daniel’s arm wrapped around her as he deepened their kiss, she felt his hand slide down over her body as he pulled her closer. Cassandra melted into his arms like this was where she belonged.

She actually cried out when their kiss ended. When she finally opened her eyes she looked at him, she was breathless and speechless. No one had ever made her feel like this.

With his heart pounding and body craving more of her touch, he touched his forehead to hers still trying to regain control, they were in a park out where anyone could see them. Daniel stood up and smiled, “I'll pick you up at 8:30 so we can,” he winked at her, “Finish our talk.” It was a statement not a question because he had turned and was already gone.

Cassandra picked up her coffee cup. She must have dropped it during their kiss. She touched her fingers to her lips, they still tingled. She laughed as her thoughts drifted to tonight.
