Kissing Friends

Chapter 1

Confusion

Jade Wilton and Sam Marks were sitting in his room watching old movies, about vampires. Sam was busy watching her instead of the TV. Sam had a secret crush on his best friend and he didn't know how to tell her. As jade sat back and breathed in deep, he watched her as she furrowed her brow and bit the corner of her lip. He watched as she scratched her arm and pouted her lips. Sam wanted to touch her light brown hair so bad, but he couldn't. If he touched her, he didn't trust himself to stop. Jade looked back at him and smiled.

"What?" Jade asked. She laughed when Sam started to blush. "Are you even watching the movie?" Jade asked as she playfully pushed him and he banged his head to the headboard. Jade giggled and Sam held the back of his head. Sam rubbed it and glared at Jade.

"You are gonna pay for that later on when I don't give you any covers tonight." Sam said with humor in his voice. Jade quirked an eyebrow at him and smiled. "You wouldn't do that to me." Jade said as she picked up a pillow and threw it at his head. Sam picked up the other pillow and threw it at her but she moved and jumped on top of him. Jade started to mess with his hair, Sam tickled her and she arched her back and started to laugh. Sam got on top of her and held her hands down to the bed.

"Give up?" Sam asked her as she tried to calm down her breathing. Jade looked up at him and shook her head. "I will never give up to you." Jade declared and Sam started to tickle her more and soon she was laughing so hard that tears were coming out of her eyes. "Ok, ok, ok, ok. I give up, I give up, stop! I give up really, please stop!" Jade giggled as Sam got off of her. Jade got up and cut the movie off and turned on the channel. Jade flicked through a few more channels till she finally gave up and laid down in the bed. Sam looked at her, and she looked at him.

"Sam?" Jade asked. "Yes?" Sam said with a smile. "Have you ever wondered what it would be like to.... you know, kiss me?" Jade's eyes explored Sam's and Sam was wondering if she was joking. Her face and eyes were reflecting seriousness, and he knew that she wasn't joking.

Sam sighed. Not sure if he should tell her what he thinks. What would she say when she found out that he loved her. He loved everything about her. Sam looked into her eyes and touched her face. Of course he wanted to kiss her. He wanted to do more then that. Jade looked at him. Waiting for an answer.

"Yes. I've thought about it. Have you thought about it?" Sam asked. It was easier then he thought. He actually told her that he wanted to kiss her. He wanted to do more, but maybe admitting a little at a time would be best.

"Yeah, I've thought about it. I've thought about it a lot. I'm thinking it now, so I was thinking. You and me can kiss each other, just to see how it would be, and we can still be friends. The kiss doesn't have to mean anything. Just, you know, an experience that we could enjoy. You know?" Jade asked as she ran her hands through Sam's hair. Sam looked at her and nodded.

"Yeah. I understand. When you want to uh..... experiment?" Sam asked. "Right now." Jade said as she leaned into him and he leaned into her. Their lips touched and Sam felt a tingling sensation. His arms went around her at the same time that hers went around his neck. Jade ran her hands through his hair and slipped her tongue into his mouth. Sam welcomed it and let his tongue massage hers. A few blissful seconds later, they drew apart, and Sam couldn't believe that what he anticipated for so long has finally happened. Jade smiled and kissed his cheek.

"So. How was that?" Sam asked. "Great. You are a good kisser. But remember that we are still friends. I don't want there to be any weirdness. I love you." Jade said as she hugged him and he smiled at her. "I love you too. Now lets get some sleep. We do have school in the mourning. Maybe one day this week you will actually sleep in your own bed." Sam joked as they got under the covers and he cut off the lamplight.

"Nah. I love your room, and your bed. I still have some of my clothes in your closet right?" Jade asked as she laid down on her pillow and closed her eyes.

"Yeah your girlie stuff is still here. So is your perfume and your hair products. It's like you live here or something." Sam joked as he closed his own eyes.

"You would like that wouldn't you?" Jade said sleepily as she drifted off to sleep.

Knowing that Jade had fell asleep, Sam kissed her forehead and smiled. "Yeah. I would Jade. I would." Sam said as he drifted off to sleep.
