Great Expectations

Jenny had admired Geoff for a long time. Every time she saw him her stomach tightened and twisted with delicious pangs. She closed her eyes, imagining him kissing her. He would hold her, so gently, his lips would brush hers and then, as she gasped with pleasure, his tongue would slip into her mouth. His tongue! She shivered at the idea. Her heart had literally skipped a beat when he had asked her out – in fact, she had felt quite faint for a moment until it resumed its normal rhythm.

And now the moment she had longed for had arrived - he really was going to kiss her. Should she shut her eyes? Would he close his? What did they do in films? He put his arms round her and bent his head. A tremor went through her and then his mouth was on hers. His tongue was probing, questing, until she opened her lips and then it was in her mouth, filling it, trying to snake its way down her gullet. This was not how it was supposed to be. Geoff seemed to be enjoying himself - his hands were all over her and she was batting them off - and it was funny but she’d never noticed the smell of him before, an unpleasant odour of unwashed body and clothes. She extricated herself from his embrace, made her excuses and left. He gazed after her, scratching his head. He’d never understand girls.


  1. So funny! Like they say, the anticipation is the best thing sometimes. :) Nice buildup and transition to near disgust. Writer’s Mark

  2. "trying to snake its way down her gullet"!
    Oh, Janice, you are wonderful. This is all too often what girls find kisses to be. Matches the title perfectly!

  3. Oh yikes, this sounds absolutely miserable. Enough to make a person swear off kissing. LOL. Good one, Janice.

  4. *LOL* Love this kissing scene. The inner dialogue is the best. Great job! Thank you for participating in the blogfest.

  5. I encountered a similar kisser once, ugh!
    I still shudder....

  6. This is brilliant, I think I had a boyfriend like that once - shudders even now.

  7. Made me laugh Janice. What we expect is not always what we get, and can apply to so many things in life.

  8. Sometimes fantasy just trumps reality. What a great representation of that!

  9. Nice post, great blog, following :)

    Good Luck :)

  10. Ha! Well, that was a disappointment for her! Great job!

  11. Hee hee, this is a great twist on a kissing scene! Well done!

  12. I loved the ending. Very real and unexpected. :-) Many thanks.

    Greetings from London.

  13. Great Expectations? Perfect! This was absolutely fabulous. You are such an amazing writer.

  14. Very real and very funny :) Brilliant!

  15. A kiss fest? Not sure what my granny would have said?

  16. I love the anticipation, then inner monologue as she contemplates how the kiss will be. This is a very realistic kiss.. :) Oh and the disappointment..LOL. Thanks for sharing and for participating!

  17. Funny and very realistic! Great scene!
