I'm running through a meadow in the forest. Giggling while running and dodging through trees and bushes. There's someone chasing me, I hear the person laugh behind me.
I collapse onto the ground laughing when the person catches me and pulls me down onto the ground. She pins me down between her knees and starts tickling me and I'm helpless to do anything but giggle as she attacks me with wave after wave of uncontrollable laughter.
"Stop! Please!" I beg in between giggles.
She finally stops and sits back on her heels. I sit up and grin at her. She has light brown skin and black hair. Her eyes are dark, brown, and the most beautiful things I've ever seen. We sit there for a long time, staring into each other's eyes.
I feel myself lean forward and see that she has done the same. We both hold the other's gaze, never taking our eyes off of each other. My head gets dizzy and I feel my chest tighten with anticipation, my stomach filled with butterflies. I don't dare to breathe, afraid of destroying this perfect moment.
I lick my lips and find my mouth dry.
I don't know how long we stayed like that, maybe it was just a few seconds, or maybe it was an hour. I couldn't tell. I just knew that I didn't want to ever leave this moment; yet, I wanted something else to happen in that moment. Does that make sense? Wanting to stay in a moment forever yet wanting it to change, knowing what was lingering around the corner.
She leans in again and our lips just barely meet, just for a second. My mind shuts down and nothing is registering in my brain. I can't help but stare at her beautiful face, I feel a smile spread across my lips as she stares back at me with those beautiful, warm eyes. We lean in again and once again her lips gently brush against mine. She lifts both of her hands up and places them on either side of my face. Our lips melt together as they dance with each other in a perfect waltz. I place a hand on the back of her head, right above her neck, gently pulling her face closer towards mine, yearning, begging for more as I press my lips into those magnificently soft, sweet lips harder.
I've never been happier in my life than I am right now, yet something feels wrong. Somewhere in my mind, something or someone is screaming at me while a bright red light flashes in my mind's eye. I feel dizzy, faint.
"Crystal," I quietly say when we finally pull apart. "I... I think I love you"
The girl sits back and stares at me, piercing my soul and filling my stomach with butterflies with those beautiful brown eyes. "You think?" She smiles.
"No," I look down at my balled up fists nervously. "I know. I love you, Crystal."
"I love you too," she smiles at me and my heart melts. How can something that feels so natural and amazing like this moment be illegal? Why? What could possibly come out of something like this that would be bad?
