First KissA Chapter by Wendy Seames Garner
A tender first kiss.
They were driving down the curving, quarter mile driveway to his house. He had taken her to meet his mother and three of his of his sisters. A stand of tall pine trees blocked the view of the house. He stopped the car just inside the mouth of the driveway.
They sat, talking, getting to know each other better. The night was dark, the moon and stars hidden by all the trees. When a car drove by he asked, “Do you know what a badittle is?”
“No,” she said.
“It's a car with one tail light out and a peadittle is a car with one front light out. And that means...”
Gently, he turned her head towards him and gave her a kiss. “That means I get to kiss you.”
Never had she received a kiss like that before, it was so sweet and tender. She was only sixteen years old, a high school junior. He was nineteen and in college. They had only gone on a couple of dates together. Still she knew, that someday, she would marry this boy. And she did.
