A Spectral Journey - The First Kiss

After a good few minutes of both of them crying with laughter, they finally managed to calm themselves down enough to look themselves straight in each other’s eyes.  His light blue eyes gazed longingly into her deep brown eyes as though they were connected by a force unseen by themselves. Time seemed to slow to almost nothing as they just stood there, staring at each other, unable to move. Suddenly breaking out of the spell which had captured both of them with a shake of their heads, they rushed forward into a warm, loving embrace. An embrace which both of them had been waiting to enjoy for so very long. They stood there, in the centre of her room, their two squeezed tight against each other in their first embrace.

As they held each other in their embrace, out of the corner of his eye he noticed the sky outside changing from black to light blue. Smiling as he nuzzled into the top of her long black hair, he realized what was happening. He had been in her room hugging with her for so long that it had finally started to become daylight outside. His joy at this everyday occurrence was soon diminished when to his horror, he watched as his hand started to fade away completely in the burgeoning sunlight. Looking towards his beautiful girlfriend who was nuzzled into his chest, he watched as some of her hair and her back started to slowly fade away. And then it hit him like a ton of bricks. The sunlight was returning, so his physical form would soon be waking up which meant that his spectral form would disappear. Realizing that he did not have much time, he moved away from their embrace, just enough so that he could push her chin and face upwards to him in order to do this last act. As the sun`s rays pierced the curtains which covered the rooms windows, the spectral couple finally had their first ever kiss, just as their forms disappeared. Never to appear again. 

The End
