He could have sworn time stopped when his lips touched hers, everything they’d said, the harsh words, and the things they never even meant, they all seemed to melt away as their lips moved in perfect sync. He felt shivers go down his back as the girls fingers laced through his hair, something he’d always taken a particular liking to, and he suspected Clare had noticed. Still regretting the very moment that he pulled away from her, Eli’s lips curled into a shy smile. His heart beat rapidly against his chest, and his eyes slowly fluttered open, hearing her breathless ‘Wow’ that nearly drove him mad. His hand slid to the nape of her neck, not quite ready to let her go. He couldn’t even begin to respond, let alone say any words at all, for his mind was still a little foggy as he replayed their kiss again and again. He wanted to lean in again, to kiss her and take her breath away, but before he had a chance to finish his thought, she was pressing his lips against his, pulling away much too soon for his own liking, earning a short and low whimper from the older boy, much to his own dismay. Eli’s breathed shakily against her lips, silently begging her to stop teasing him and to just crush her lips over his. His heart soared at her words, and he smiled faintly “I love you, Clare,” he whispered in return, pressing his lips against hers in another deep kiss, so passionate, he feared that Clare could feel the way his hands were shaking.
There was no better feeling in the world than kissing Eli. Each kiss they shared felt like a new and exciting experience. Each press of his lips against hers whether they were sneaking in a chaste kiss in the halls of Degrassi or sharing something more passionate when they were alone felt like the first kiss of a brand new relationship. The way he was able to get her body to react to a simply brush of his lips scared her at times for she had never felt so alive while doing something so simple before. His whispered I love you sent the younger girls heart racing and just as she was about to give into her need and press her lips back against his he had beaten her to it. His lips moved expertly against hers making her whole body tingle with desire. An embarrassed moan slipped past her lips her only thoughts were that Eli hadn’t heard it. Lacing her fingers tighter around his dark locks she gently tugged on his hair hoping to distract both him and his mind from the embarrassing sound she had let slip past her lips. She had missed this. She had missed laying here with him, being alone with him, sharing such passionate kisses that seemed to convey everything they had wanted to say to one another, but couldn’t quite find the words to do so. Slowing down their passionate kiss just slightly Clare pulled her lips back from his before letting her teeth graze gently against his bottom lip. A lazy smile fell onto her lips as their cool breath found a way to mix with each others again. Taking a moment to get lost in what they were doing she pressed her lips back against his in a lingering kiss half hoping she’d never have to leave this spot or his bed. Her only wish being that they could stay like this for the rest of time, wrapped up in each others arms whispering soft I love you’s and sharing sweet kisses.
Eli’s lips moved roughly over hers, having missed the feeling of being so close, their lips moving in perfect sync, their breath out of rhythm, her fingers tangled in his hair. He was almost certain that his heart stopped at the soft moan that fell from her lips, and although it wasn’t the first time she’d given him such a reaction, it never ceased to make his breath stutter and his hands shake. He took her gentle, but notable tugging on his hair as a way to distract him from the alluring noise that had fallen from her lips, but now all he could think about was getting her to do it again. His eyes slowly fluttered open as she pulled away, the two desperately trying to regain their breath. Eli let out a shaking sigh of content as her teeth grazed over his bottom lip, his gentle whimper of desire being drowned out by her next kiss, that he still felt on his lips once she had pulled away. His thoughts soon drifted to Christmas day when the two had given up watching The Grinch, exchanging heated kisses, both agreeing not to hold back, their heavy breaths and gentle noises filling the room, how Clare had told him exactly what she wanted… Eli shook the thoughts away, catching his breath as his arm moved around her waist again, holding her securely.
