Spring Break - Mini Excerpt

Her legs bounced up and down. Anxiety taking over, she couldn’t sit still. She glanced at her watch again – 6:25 p.m. What if Titus didn’t show up? Her legs bounced more. She shifted in her seat and released short breaths. She was about to check her phone again when she heard her mother say, “There he is.”
She turned around to see him walking toward them wearing a black suit with a white shirt, rocking a red necktie and carrying two red-stemmed roses. Haven immediately got up from her seat, hurriedly closed the distance between them and embraced her tall, dapper, handsome man. She hadn’t laid eyes on him in two weeks. They’d video-chatted but nothing about a video call could give her this feeling – the feeling of holding him in her arms. Smelling his cologne. His skin. Feeling his warmth. Basking in his presence. It was like being kissed by the sun.
“I’m so glad you’re here,” she whispered.
 “You say that like you didn’t think I was going to come,” he said, staring into her eyes.
“You had me worried there for a minute. I tried to call you,” she said, glancing at his mouth.
“I know.” He leaned down to take a kiss from her red-tinted lips. “I’d stopped quickly to get these.” He handed her a rose.
“Thank you.”
“You’re welcome, beautiful.” He put his arms around her and walked over to the table where her parents were sitting. Pulling out a chair for Haven to sit, Titus looked at Cicely and smiled. He handed her a rose saying, “For you, Mrs. Baker.”
“Thank you, Titus,” Cecily said, all smiles.
“You’re welcome.”
“It’s good to see you again, Mr. Baker,” Titus said reaching  to shake his hand.
“Where’s my rose?” Silas joked, then erupted in laughter. “I’m just pulling your leg, man. It’s good to see you. Now we can eat.”
“I’m glad you’re here Titus. Dad was about to take one of those crab cakes from our neighbor over there,” Haven said.
“I sure was. I didn’t have lunch today. I’m starving.”
“Well, let’s get this show on the road, then.” Titus walked around the table, took his position next to Haven then glanced over at her quickly before looking again to fix his eyes on her face. There was no comparison to seeing her on video chat. He marveled at the soft touches the makeup had on her already outstanding features. How the blush laid visible the beautiful cheekbones his lips were quivering to kiss. The side profile of her lips made them look plump, firm and delicious. He couldn’t wait to kiss them like he wanted...
