Kiss Scene taken from:
Sandra D. Bricker's book, Love Finds You in Holiday, Florida, p. 204 & 205

Richard surprised her by reaching over and taking her hand and then lifting it to his lips. He planted a soft and sincere kiss on her knuckles before guiding her hand to his face and nuzzling it gently.

"I don't want you to go."

She had absolutely nothing to say in reply. Not one single thing crossed her mind except to ask herself what she could say to ease his mind.

Nothing. There's no promise I can make, no hope to lay out there for either of us.

"I'm sorry," she managed.

"I'm sorry, too," he replied on a whisper, releasing her hand.

Cassie looked into Richard's eyes and felt stranded there, disoriented. She couldn't pull away from his gaze.

He's so handsome, she thought as she watched him.

The wind kicked up a blustery stream around them, and his chestnut hair feathered back from his face in sections. his blue eyes darkened like a night sky, and the parenthetical dimples that she loved so much were nowhere in sight. He would have had to smile for her to get a glimpse of them, and Richard wasn't smiling.

He lifted his hand and pressed it softly against her cheek. Then he guided her toward him with two fingers beneath her jaw. Cassie knew she had the choice to pull away, but she just couldn't mange it. She couldn't even entertain the idea.

When his soft lips touched hers, it was a tender kiss, as smooth as the flight of two soaring birds or a petal falling from a flower. They lingered in that kiss, both of them lost in the poetry of the circumstance.

The heavens rumbled faintly and then rain began to plummet, but Cassie and Richard were spellbound, absorbed in another and the perfect moment they'd been given. When they finally parted, Cassie felt as if she'd just been awakened from a deep and abiding sleep. Her eyelids were heavy, and her lips ached for more. It wasn't until Richard was on his feet and extending his hand toward her that she realized it had begun to rain.
