“Why can’t I stop thinking about you?” she asks innocently. She looks down at me as she sits next to me. “Since I saw you at the bus station, you’ve been in my head. My dreams, my thoughts.”
“Your dreams huh?” I smile at her. Reaching my hand up, cupping behind her ear, I pull her face down to me. I kiss her again, this time, with more hunger. Harder, deeper. I feel her intensity matching mine. 
She climbs on top of me. Her hands grabbing my face, as if she can pull me closer into her. I sit up, wrapping my arms around her waist. I can feel myself ready to explode at her very touch. Our hands explore. I long to touch, feel, taste, every inch of her. She’s so much more than I could have imagined. I need her, want her.
