"His eyes grew wide when I did but he deepened the kiss, softening his gaze and enjoying our physical contact.
He kissed me passionately, ravishing my lips and parting them seeking my tongue. He put his hands under my bottom and lifted me, so that I could put my legs around his waist. Not letting go of me nor my lips, he started walking to the bedroom.
This man puts my core on fire with his touch, his lips on mine are like fucking fireworks. We had been intimate before, but not like this. I saw him like he was and I wasn’t scared. I felt the desire burning in his eyes while he raked his eyes over my body. He lowered me onto my bed and trailed kisses with his soft lips over my neck and collarbone.
This time would be different because it wasn’t only carnal lust fueling our longing for each other, this time, it was something deeper.”
Excerpt from “Lotus”.
⚜ Author’s note
Thank you for reading my Novel.
English is my third language (I also speak Dutch, Spanish and French) and I started this journey as a way to practise and let my imagination come to life in words.
There will be some dialogue in Spanish and I’ve put the translations at the end of every paragraph.
I love to hear from you! Comment and share your thoughts. It’s what motivates me to keep telling stories.
Lots of love,
