That's YAMore: Love & Then Some

Oasis for YA is hosting a blogfest in honor of Valentine's Day. Basically, post your most swoon-worthy and romantic moments. I settled for funny, yet romantic from the guy's POV. This is from my latest WIP It's Coop Not Cupid

Not to mention Writing With Hope is hosting one too! "Is it Getting Hot in Here?" Going to kill two birds with one stone!

Shit. Shit. Shit. Here came the tears. I could see them glossing over her eyes. They were silent when they fell. Alex leaned into me. 
“I feel so damn pathetic.” Then the crying came. She tried hard to muffle them, poor girl.
Just seeing her there on my lap, sobbing like some kind of raccoon, I couldn’t help it. Something inside me twisted and I tugged on her chin. She looked up at me.
“You’re not pathetic, okay.”
Maybe it was the puppy-dog eyes or my lack of judgment, but I kissed her. I kissed her hard and full, pulling her closer to me.  
Thing was...she kissed back.
The ride halted as we parted. There stood Sam, eying me with a look I could only interpret as hatred. I grinned. Gods, I couldn’t help it. That prick had it coming. I wrapped an arm around Alex as we stepped off. It was about time he proved himself. Did he like the girl or not?
“Coop,” Alex whispered. “What did we…?”
I smiled. “Don’t worry. Now, we’ll see how that Sam of yours really feels.”
“Wait, that was just a test?” She looked up, then slowly a smile spread onto her pink lips.
“You know,” she said. “That was my first kiss that was just fun and didn’t mean a darn thing. That was kind of awesome.”
I raised a brow. “What’d you expect? I’m the god of love, sweetheart.”

Hee,hee,hee. I want Coop to move in next door to me so we can be snarky together.

what a fun scene! it makes me think Coop is getting in deeper than he bargained for though... even "meaningless" kissing catches up to a guy eventually. well done & thanks for participating!

Thanks everyone and yes, Larissa, trouble is not far behind at all--in fact next two chapters are so action packed with boy punching boy and way too many kisses aahha.
