I have never written a scene like this one before. It was fun to write. I had a couple of reasons for writing it from Parker’s POV. Mostly because I wanted to make it a kiss scene that my 11 year old son would enjoy reading. He’s not big on watching kissing stuff in the movies yet but I thought if I told it from Parker’s POV, it would be something he could relate to reading. I hope he’ll like the stuff about the bacon too because yes, my son like any boy has a bacon obsession. Enjoy and keep in mind that this is still from my NANOWRIMO story so it’s unedited of course :). And feel free to leave comments. All I seem to keep getting on this blog are spammer comments 😉
Bacon as a pizza topping, Parker knew that whoever thought that up years ago was a genius. Because as everyone knew, especially guys, bacon was beyond epic. Bacon was the ultimate treat. He glanced over at Darcy, who grinned at him as she crunched into her bacony blissful piece. Much to his disapproval however, White Queen sat next to Darcy removing the bacon bits on her piece of pizza. What kind of girl did that?
White Knight, who sat next on the other side of him, poured himself a plastic cup of Pepsi and asked, “Anyone want to play a game to pass the time while we eat and while we’re waiting for our servers to reboot?”
“Sure. What kind of game?” Darcy asked.
“Truth or dare.”
Parker grinned and set his slice of pizza down on the plate. “Truth or dare, now that’s my kind of old fashioned fun game.” Perfect opportunity to get to know Darcy better as well, if he played his cards right. “I’ll start, Snow Girly, truth or dare?”
“Snow Girly now is it?” White Queen asked in a skeptical tone.
“I don’t mind. I like Snow Girly as a nickname for my code name. And dare please.”
Dare? Hmm, he wasn’t expecting that right off the bat. Let’s see. He wanted to prove to her he was a gentleman so no asking her to dance around her in underwear, although that would be a beautiful sight to behold. But there was one thing he wanted from her more than anything else. Would she do it even if technically she hadn’t broken up with her boyfriend back home yet? It was worth asking.
“I dare you to kiss me on the lips.”
“Okay. I wanted to kiss you last night anyway. Guess I just chickened out though.” She leaned in and brushed her lips against his.
So soft, so sweet, and he had no choice to pull her in close and crush his lips into hers. Salty bacon, combined with a honeyed mouth and tongue. Oh now this was cool and unexpected. A little tongue action here. Very nice. Warmth raged through his body. He didn’t want to let her go, didn’t want to break the spell, but she stopped him kissing him and pulled away.
“Woah, okay, that was some way to start out the game,” White Knight said, staring at both of them.
Parker had to agree. And he hoped it wouldn’t be the last kiss he ever got from Darcy, but the future after they caught the hacker thief was still uncertain.
Darcy’s cheeks were crimson tinged when she asked, “Is it my turn?”
“Yeah,” White Knight replied, “Go on.”
“Okay, White Queen truth or dare?”
“Truth … okay … there is something I always wanted to know. What is your real first name?”
White Queen widened her eyes. “Are we allowed to give it?”
“I don’t see why not. Ms. Ramierz isn’t here now to stop us,” Darcy replied.
“My real first name is Scarlett,” she admitted.
Parker was tired of being afraid to show the real him, so he extended his hand and said, “Nice to meet you Scarlett, I’m Parker.”
White Knight smiled and chimed in. “I’m Nate.”
And finally his Snow Girly said, “I’m Darcy.”
“Cool now that we all each other’s real names …” Parker paused and rubbed his hands together. “Let the real fun begin.”
