“I looked over at Jason. “Want some?”
He grinned. “Sure.”
I pulled some off, held it out to him. He opened his mouth slightly, a challenge in his eyes. I don’t know why I’d thought he’d take it from me.
Finally, he said, “I don’t want to get my fingers sticky.”
Oh, right. I got really warm, but I pushed the cotton candy into his mouth--and couldn’t help thinking about a bride shoving the cake into the groom’s mouth.
Jason’s lips barely touched my fingers as his mouth closed, and I pulled back, but I got that much hotter, had felt his breath skim across my knuckles. It was so intimate, so personal, like something you’d do with someone you had a serious crush on. Much more intimate than spooning him ice cream. With ice cream, there was the distance of the spoon, not to mention that it was cold.
“I haven’t had cotton candy in forever,” he said. “I’d forgotten how…sugary it is.”
“It’s pure sugar.”
“I wonder who invented it.”
“I think it was a dentist.”
He laughed, a laugh that revealed his perfect smile, his perfect teeth. “I’ll bet you’re right.”
