The touch of Cerice's skin on mine made me feel warm. I leaned in to her and watched as the oranges, pinks and reds of the sky mixed and exploded. I felt Cerice's heart beating, and I wrapped my arms round her tighter.
"Have you ever... have you ever looked at a girl before and thought you might be a lesbian?" She stilled.
"I-I don't know. Yeah I guess. I just never really wanted it to happen. Or never thought it could happen." I looked at her and saw that she was sad, but she also seemed to glow with happiness. It was like she was free. I kissed her cheek and stared out at the sunset again.
"For what it's worth, I'm glad you came to Australia Cerice."
"I'm glad I came too."
"Come on, we'd better go back to the car before it gets too dark."
We went hand in hand to the car and drove off. I felt a tingle in my heart, every time I looked at her. If this was what it felt like to be in love, I was in way deep. But it felt right. I grinned.
"Penny for your thoughts?" Cerice was looking at me.
"I was just thinking... how perfect you are." She blushed.
"I'm... I'm not perfect."
"No one is. But you're the closest I've met." She blushed again.
"Well, you're the most perfect person I've ever met too."
We were silent after that until we reached the university.
"I'll miss you." I whispered.
"I can see you tomorrow." I smiled and kissed her, savouring her lips.
"No you can't. That's the problem with having a teacher as a girlfriend. I'm going to have to do marking at some point." She looked disappointed. "But you'll see me on Monday."
"By the way, I'm guessing you want us to act like before in class. Unless you don't mind the class knowing..."
"...not yet. Maybe someday."
"I can wait." I grinned and kissed her again. "If you don't get out now I'm going to have to kidnap you and keep you in my house."
"That doesn't sound too bad." She grinned at me and I laughed. We kissed again, and I almost suggested she came back to mine. But I didn't want to rush this, and that would be too quick I thought.
"Go on, don't you have some work to do or something?"
"Yeah, but it can wait. I have tomorrow."
"Cerice seriously. Please go before I go crazy. You're driving me crazy." I was itching to kiss her again, to touch her, to hold her, but I knew I was getting a bit flushed. It was too soon, she'd regret it if I offered her my house, or that we went up to her room. Too soon. Please Cerice, I'm trying not to rush this, but you're turning me on.
She smiled at me and leaned in for a kiss.
