He doesn't speak for a while, just analyzing me. His blue eyes are red from all the alcohol. "Okay. I'll lie to you." He closes the distance between us and steps closer. He only stops once he's got me backed up against the bathroom counter. "I don't want to do this." His left hand lands on my waist and he yanks me to him. I can't breathe. "Or this." His available hand slowly climbs up my bare arm. "Will, you're... you're drunk," My voice is shaky. He keeps leaning in, his eyes falling to my lips. "Or this." He runs his thumb along my bottom lip and I shiver even more. Internal scream. "And I am definitely not fucking dying to lift you up on that counter and kiss you right now." ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬ TO BE PUBLISHED MARCH 2020. Rule #1: No touching your best friend's sister.
