Chapter 01: The Kiss
It was midnight time when a brunette decided to stroll down the pool side and get some fresh air. People were suffocating her back at the hotel, telling her what she should do with her life. She was old enough to decide for herself. She doesn’t need anyone’s help. She was actually better off without them. She needs to get away from them - from everybody – she needs to be alone and think things through.
She sat at the edge of the pool, half of her legs submerged in the cool water. She had always been amazed by the water. The idea of floating around, gazing at the bright blue sky and feel the water with her hair. The thought crawled inside her, boosting her confidence and unconsciously, she jumped off.
The fact of her not learning how to swim slipped her mind. She had the money but not the skills. And what was she thinking diving in to the pool just like that? She might as well drown as a punishment for being reckless.
“Help!” Her voice cried out, hoping someone would hear her. She panicked and started to flap her arms around, only making the matter worse.
“Someone save me!” She yelped again, this time drinking some of the pool water.
She was going to die for sure. No one would hear her, not at this hour.
So she just followed the flow, and let the water engulfed her.
“Hey. Wake up.” She felt a cold hand slapping her cheek. She coughed and gasped for air.
Someone saved her.
She slowly opened her eyes, came back to her senses and sat up.
She gazed at her savior. He was one of the most beautiful creatures she has ever seen. He had blond hair, water dripping from each strand. His eyes were alluring, almost like the green see. His skin was obviously smooth (judging from the hand slap he gave her). And his lips a bit blue from the cold water.
He was like her guardian angel.
“Hey.” Voice low and bold. He grabbed her shoulders and shook her lightly.
The boy sighed in relief and plastered a small smile. She was alright after all. “I thought you were a goner. It was a good thing I heard you screaming.” She felt her shoulders lighter but her heart heavier.
“What were you thinking back there? Were you trying to prove something with that little stunt of yours?”
“Well, no. I… wasn’t actually thinking back there.” She tried to smile, but was too embarrassed for herself.
The boy gave a little chuckle and patted her head.
“Well, whatever reason you had, I’m glad you’re alright.” He then stood up and squeezed his shirt until water came out. He held out a hand, offering help to stand. She grabbed hesitantly - suddenly feeling a weird connection - stood up and quickly muttered a ‘thanks’.
“Thanks for saving me.”
“Not a problem. Just be careful next time and remember to think things through.” He said, making her feel shy. “Well, I have to go now. My family must be worried. See ya.” He turned around to the other direction and gave her a small wave.
She smiled and bit her lip.
“He saved m-“. She couldn’t finish her sentence when she felt her lips warm. Usually, they would be freezing cold after being soaked. Unless…
… he did that?
No, he couldn’t. Never. But the possibilities…
She touched her lips.
Her heart accelerated.
It was her first kiss.
He stole her first kiss.
