Appreciate the moment of a first kiss, it may be the last time you own your heart.
-R.M. Drake

I sighed thinking about downing one of the multiple alcoholic drinks that my best friend had placed in front of us. If I made it through this night alive and emotionally intact, I was going to beat some sense into her for dragging me here. I continually focused all my energy on blocking out the emotions of those around us, scanning the room.

I smiled at the tall masculine man with short dark hair and piercing green eyes, sitting across the room from me. I inwardly frowned to myself, I was in no way wanting a relationship, why was I smiling at this dark stranger. Still I couldn't take my eyes off of his, and his adorable half smirk as he watched me.

Laura leaned closer to me and whispered in my ear, her breath smelled of all the alcoholic beverages she'd consumed in the past hour and a half and her long, curly, sandy blonde hair fell in her face as she leaned in.

“Find something you like?” She slurred a little too loudly.

I sighed and let my eyes leave his as I turned to my overly boisterous, and waisted best friend.

“Come on lightweight let's get you home.” I placed my arm around her waist and her arm around my shoulders and lifted her to a standing position.

“Oh come on it was just about to get juicy!”

I shook my head in embarrassment as she talked as loud as she could, albeit not all that coherently, so one could only hope that no one had understood her.

I walked her to the door and she shoved away from me almost knocking a small group of giggling Freshman over.

“Seriously Laura, you need to go lay down.” I gulped at my mistake, you never tell Laura what to do.

A huge mischievous grin lite her face and I instantly wished I had got her through the door faster.

“Alright I'll go, if you kiss him, and I mean really kiss him not some peck on the cheek.” She slurred her words but thankfully didn't talk loud enough for the entire room to hear.

“I don’t even know him, now come on let's go home please. ” I went to grab her arm and she pulled away from me.

“NO! Not until you k…,”

“Fine,” I grumbled cutting her off.

I blocked out all the emotions swirling through the room as I turned to find he was still sitting with his group of friends at one of the wooden card tables set up with a game of shot roulette. I froze for a second when I realized he was still watching me as his smaller blonde friend smacked his arm and handed him another shot of hard alcohol. I glanced back at Laura who had a wolfish grin and groaned, she wasn't going to let me leave.

I mustered every ounce of courage and walked over to him and before he could say anything I sat on his lap and pulled his head down to mine kissing him. After the shock of it passed I could hear his friends cat calling as he wrapped his arms around me and kissed me deeper pulling me into him until I was pressed against his hard body. I could taste the alcohol on his tongue as it left a bittersweet tang behind. I gasped for air as I pulled back, feeling the rush of blood to my face and smiled shaking slightly I stood. Before he could say anything I turned and grabbed Laura's hand noting the shocked look on her face, and dragged her outside to the car. I buckled her in the passenger seat, her eyes still wide, and hurried over to the drivers side and gasped seeing the handsome man I just kissed leaning against my driver's side door. I managed to stop a foot away from him.

“Um hi,” I blushed deeply and looked down at my feet.

“I'm sorry about that my friend, um, she wouldn't leave unless…,”

Before I could say more he had closed the distance between us, lifted my face to look at him and pressed his lips to mine hungrily. One of his hands sunk into my long hair softly and I grounded as warmth spread through my body like setting a match aflame. I started to shake at the intensity of his kiss and he wrapped a strong arm around my waist holding me closer. There was no way to escape the onslaught of his emotions sweeping over me like a title wave. He was confused, lustful, drunk and curious.

When he finally released me from the kiss he let go of my hair but moved his arm down so that he had both arms wrapped around my waist still holding me close. I placed my forehead against his chest trying to remember how to breathe again.

“What's your name?” He whispered in my ear as his warm breath tingled against my neck.

“Jessie,” I whispered into his chest. I felt as though I was suffocating on his emotion, I needed to get away.

“Jessie?” He said releasing me slightly so that I would look at him.

When I looked up he smiled warmly at me. His green eyes and dark brown hair had my heart beating faster.

“I would like so see you again soon, preferably when we aren't at a party and buzzed on hard liquor.”

“I haven't had anything to drink tonight, I came because Laura made me.” I said frowning slightly and then grounded inwardly, oh my God I forgot about Laura sitting in the passenger seat probably staring at us all goofy like. I turned my head slightly to look at her and she grinned minevalently at us.

He laughed softly a deep husky sound that made his chest rumble under my hand and I blushed as it made me warm all over again.

“For someone so shy that was a bold move you made.” He stated as he ran his fingers across my flushed cheeks letting me know he didn't miss my blushing.

I turned my head and looked away trying to process what to say but my mind wouldn't work when I was so damn close to this amazingly chiseled body.

“I need to go, I have to get Laura home before she throws up in my car,”

I whispered looking up at him from underneath the cover of my lashes.

“Of course, will I see you again?” He asked letting his hands fall to his side. His hand no longer warming my cheek made my stomach ache slightly. How could this stranger affect me so much?

“I'm on campus most of the time and if I'm not it won't be hard to find me.” I finally said as I turned towards my car door. I got in as he took a step back giving me room and drove off before I did something stupid like give him my number.
