Weekend Writing Warriors

Eight more sentences from ‘Dream of Paris’. After their first kiss by the River Seine, Matt tells Anna he’d wanted to kiss her for weeks.
She stared at him, hardly able to believe what he’d said. All the time she’d been thinking it was an impossible dream, he’d been wanting to kiss her. “Why didn’t you?”
His gaze met hers for a few tension-filled moments, and then, without breaking eye-contact, he reached to push a stray strand of hair back from her cheek. His soft fingers traced the outline of her ear as he tucked it behind, and stayed near her earlobe, gently caressing the side of her neck with his fingertips.
“Because I’ve been trying not to fall in love with you.”
She was sure she’d imagined his words but the tenderness in his eyes told her she hadn’t. For a second she didn’t dare breathe or move, in case she broke the spell.
