Just Kiss Already

The lovely Christina Lee and Stina Lindenblatt have teamed up to co-host the 'Just Kiss Already Blogfest.' The rules, -keep it to 250 words, have fun and check out some of the other entries!  Here's mine.

* Grace and Jasper in Hong Kong. *

Grace stood at the edge of the balcony, contemplating the bright lights of the city skyscrapers that glistened as the sun lowered on the horizon.  Hong Kong was such a dirty city close up, -much prettier from afar.  She drained the contents of her wine glass, carefully placing it on the wooden rail.  The luncheon had been fun, a small party of six, and Jasper had been a great host, regaling tales of his recent trip to Shanghai.  The last of his friends had just left, and Grace could hear the distinct sound of his footsteps across the wooden floorboards now, each step sending her senses into overdrive.  He stood at the large sliding doors behind her, watching.  Maybe, she should go, -it was just the two of them, and that evening sunset on the harbour.  She exhaled slowly as he stepped outside towards her.

No, -she didn’t want leave tonight, and without turning, she knew he was already undressing her.  She’d chosen the cream Valentino dress with a slightly low cut back, knowing that even if they were not face to face, she would still have his attention.

“Grace?”  His voice warm and intoxicating, his fingers gentle, tracing the line of her collarbone, sweeping her hair to one side. Grace closed her eyes, her heart did not speed up; instead it stilled as the warmth of his body enveloped her, and she arched, -allowing access to the soft velvet of her neck.  They fit perfectly.  She gasped as his soft lips came down, his strong arms steadying her, his gentle blue eyes searching hers, and without hesitating she reached up.  “Kiss me…” She murmured, pulling his face deep into hers.
