Then he gets up. That October guy. He seems all too happy to be spinning the bottle, but he spins it a lot slower than everyone else did. In fact, I could swear it was…
Oh no, no, no, no…
I was having good luck and now this.
I stare in horror at the bottle that’s stopped and pointing in my direction. Maybe I can do a Beatrix. Yeah, I can do that. I get up and meet my fate.
His eyes are glittering as he leans in. Time seems to slow down to an agonizing pace as I lean in and ready my head to turn. Then, the unexpected happens. His hands grasp my face and before I can even turn, he plants a soft kiss on my lips and lets go of my face.
He takes in my facial reaction, and I wish I could give him the reaction he wants. His face falls. All I know is my first kiss was stolen by someone I don’t know, don’t love, or even like. Even more, it happened with everyone watching. I wanted a private moment. What am I going to tell Brody?
I turn around and sit down in my spot. Emi rubs my back as I blink back tears. The game goes on, but I don’t even pay attention to the rest of it.
