I first kissed her when I was eleven and she was ten. It was all very shy and cutesy and twee. Eyes closed, two lips locking, no tongue of course. No spark either. We called it love but was it really anything more than liking each other’s company? A simple sealing of a close friendship?

This is beautiful.
I very nearly parroted DCT designs there, but I whole heartedly agree.
This is one of the most beautiful stories you’ve written. So far my favorite. Lovely to read before bed.
Such a sweet way to tell the progress of a relationship. A lifetime of kisses — as DCT designs wrote: beautiful.
A beautiful and delightful story…

This is “Love” and an amazing way to show it
Loved this one, and 300 stories in 300 words is a great basis for a blog. Thanks for being my first ever follower on my own nascent blog. I appreciate it!

I love this blogger. He and Mercilo Daviss, are two bloggers that I eagerly wait to read every morning – sometimes while in my first block class. (Very sneakily, I peek at my hand under my desk while taking notes)
I love their writing and enjoy their short flash fiction. One day, I shall have skillz like them.
Anywho, I suggest that those who enjoy reading and want something new to sink their teeth in every day, should follow them both.

For Mercilo Daviss, either look him up and search (and feel like a spy for doing so) or go here:
Just fabulous! Well done and great blog idea. Keep up the good work – you are raising very high expectations. Don’t let us down!

It is harder to pack a load of emotions and meaning into a short story than an epic novel. Well done.
Agree with all the comments. Better a short piece like this than spinning it out into a novel. You have the essential in so few words. Well done.
How sad! I really like that story.
A lifetime in a few paragraphs. Loved it!
