#SixSunday - FOOLISH, RECKLESS

It's Sunday! That means a six sentence preview of ONCE AND FOR ALL! If you've visited before, you know that this is the sequel to ONCE AGAIN. It follows Phoebe Campbell and Todd Miller as they encounter their own reincarnation mystery. For the full blurb, click here.

As you know, Phoebe and Todd are social opposites who get paired to work together on a project for art class. The grow closer, begin to see past the preconceived notions they had about each other, and during one work session wind up in a kiss. However, knowing it would never amount to anything, Phoebe asks Todd not to kiss her again, reasoning that it will just hurt worse when their uneasy partnership comes to an end if she's allowed herself to get involved with him. He abides by her wishes, though he doesn't want to. In today's excerpt, Phoebe initiates a kiss between them after a particularly emotional event, effectively ending the "prohibition" she'd enacted!

I went up on my tip-toes and fixed my eyes on his. I watched as they widened, his pupils dilating as I slid my hands around his shoulders.

Knowing it was the most foolish, reckless moment of my life, I pressed my lips against his, and what I felt from him was so completely foreign.

Acceptance. Admiration. Belonging.
