A kiss

“I don’t even know how to skate.” Xavier muttered.

“Just hold onto me.” Nova suggested.

Xavier grunted and reached out for Nova, who had her arms stretched out for him. He grabbed a hold of her hands gently and intertwined them. They were small in his giant hands and very soft, they warmed his cold hands and he loved it.

“Ya know...this would have been way cuter if Nova was the one struggling.”

“I agree.”

Xavier groaned when he recognized those two voices, Marco and Jessica. They both stood there with those stupid little grins that absolutely drove Xavier mad. He hadn’t known Jessica for long but she was just like Marco- a smart ass, could never keep her mouth shut and a horrible singer.

“Go away.” Xavier muttered shooting Marco an annoyed look but that only fueled Marco.

“C’mon Xavbear!” Marco teased.

Jessica bursted out laughing and clutched her stomach, “Xavbear?! Xavbear?! brilliant!”

“I think its cute. Xavier looks like a big bear.” Nova uttered with a small cute dimpled smile.

“Yeah, he looks like a teddy bear!” Marco exclaimed.

Jessica and Marco continued laughing and making jokes. Finally a Xavier had enough and tried to chase after them but slipped. The two annoying pare skated away laughing, disturbing everyone.

“Let’s get out of here. I want hot chocolate.” Nova demeaned and helped Xavier up.


Nova and Xavier walked in silence through a park with their cups of hot chocolate. The snow crunched under their feet and sparkled from a distance.

“Xavbear.” Nova thought out loud.

“Xavbear.” Xavier repeated with a sigh.

“I like it but i bet i can come up with a better one.” Nova stated.

“You called me a bear.” Xavier recalled.

“I didn’t mean like a big scary one! A cute little lovable one um i mean- I’m going to stop talking now.” Nova ended her ramble.

She blushed and hoped Xavier would think it was because of the cold air but Xavier knew damn well that she was blushing.

He chuckled.

“Sorry.” Nova squeaked.

“Cute and innocent.” Xavier muttered under his breath.

He watched her close her eyes and take a deep breath, the wind blowing her hair out of her face. She looked beautiful.

He stopped walking by a bench and placed his drink down. He took Nova’s drink and placed it down as well, ignoring her confused facial expression he gently pulled her closer to him.

She gazed up at him with her lips slightly parted and her eyes twinkling. He leaned down and kissed her softly, she automatically kissed him back. She felt like her heart was going to jump out of her chest from beating so fast.

Xavier pulled back with the biggest smile. He kissed Nova and she kissed him back. Her lips were soft and plump, the kiss was everything he’d imagined.

“Wow.” Nova spoke first.

“Wow indeed.” Xavier said breathlessly.

“That was my first kiss.” She said.

“Was it good?” Xavier asked.

“Yes.” Nova exhaled.

“Good. I’m going to kiss you again now.”

“Please do.”
