Seph knew that look. A little to well, sadly. Swiftly, she got up, pulling Kiba up with her. She tossed Leo a look, but he probably didn't catch it, considering he was making dinner for two younger ones. Persephone's blue eyes darted back behind her to find Kiba, before she led him down a hall. She knew the place like the back of her hand and instantly, they were in a spare room alone. Seph shut the door and locked it, letting go of Kiba's hand and turning around to face him.
"You would think I'm a słut if we started kissing now, huh?"Persephone asked, sounding vaguely troubled about the fact as she stared at him."I don't have a boyfriend, if that makes you feel any better."
Kiba stared at her, honestly a little confused. "What are you doing?" he asked quietly, looking away. She couldn't kiss him now; they'd just met. Of course that was extremely hypocritical, considering he did this all the time, but with Seph it was different.
"Seph, you... I don't think you're a s.lut, but..." He forced himself to look back up at her, though his expression seemed a little sad. "You'd kiss a stranger you just met? Believe me, I'd love to, but... I couldn't do that to you."
"What am I doing? What are you doing?" Persephone demanded, incredulous. And, if she was being honest, a little hurt. She had never been denied before...Her brows furrowed and she frowned, shaking her head at Kiba's words.
"And yes, I kiss strangers all the time."She answered without missing a beat, nodding. It was true; kissing was just something she did. Persephone paused, raising a skeptical brow."What are you playing at, Kiba? Huh? Why can't you kiss me?"She didn't mean to get defensive or anything; Seph had just never been questioned before. Or at least, not by who she was about to kiss. Leo, of coarse, but Leo cared for her like a brother..."Some Washington thing?"Seph guessed, sitting on the bed and staring at him accusingly.
Why did she look so... hurt? Kiba hesitated before sitting beside her. Hopefully that was fine. "What do you mean, what am I doing? I just..."
Sighing, he brushed his bangs out of his eyes, but they fell back to the same place. "I kiss strangers, too. Every single day. But I... I don't know. It's different with you." He stared at the floor, wondering if all girls were really this complicated. "You're different. I don't know why, but I honestly hate the thought of you making out with some guy you don't even know. Even me." Although he did want to kiss her, there was no doubt about that. Yet somehow it seemed wrong.
[Just bumping it for you so you don't have to dig through a million pages lol ]
"But I saw the way you were looking at me..."Seph sighed, kind of slumping as her blonde hair fell over her shoulders. She knew her ponytail was too loose. She ran a hand through her hair, glancing over at Kiba.
"And I know you."She insisted."You're from Washington and know Maddie and..."Seph trailed off with a little smirk, before it dampened."Wrong? Hm. Never had heard that one before."
[ Thank you, always so kind ^.^]
Kiba sighed, giving her a skeptical look. "Well, of course I was looking at you. What guy in their right mind wouldn't look at you? Have you looked in a mirror lately?" He closed his eyes, trying to force back his sarcastic tone; that wouldn't help anything here.
When he opened them, his green eyes were a little sad as he looked at her. "Seph..." Was he still allowed to call her that? "You know facts about me; you don't actually know me. Not at all." He looked back at the floor. "Why do you want to kiss me so bad anyway?"
[It's no problem! Oh--- guess you just got a printer/scanner/copier... for free... XD Sorry if I'm bragging, I'm just so exstatic right now, lol ]
[ *guess WHO not guess YOU ... ]
[ *guess WHO not guess YOU ... ]
"Yes, I have seen myself." Persephone replied dryly, looking at him with his bangs falling right above his eyes. His beautifully unique green eyes...
"Why?"She scoffed. That question should of been never invented, for it made her hug her legs and glare at the wall."That's no good question."The truth was, Persephone didn't want to tell him.
[Oh and you? Haha my bad a little out of it.]
"Well, if you've really seen yourself, then you know how beautiful you are, right? And a gorgeous girl like you probably deserves some respect, right?" Kiba stared at her, wishing she could just see his point.
He desprately wanted to hold her, because she looked a bit distraught and upset. But he wouldn't. Or would he... Before he even realised it, he had gently pushed her down on the bed, and kissed her. He felt like a complete failure, and a hypocrite, but he couldn't stop.
[Haha, yeah X3 Lol, may I enquire as to why you are out of it..? ]
[Ive been getting over a cold since Monday haha no fun being sick]
Persephone was about to reply before weight was suddenly on her. Or, rather, Kiba was on top of her. He was tall like Persephone, the outline of his hip bones pressing into hers. His lips were hot and warm, tasting like musk. For a moment, she was flustered, before she easily kissed back, getting into the rhythm of blood pumping through her ears wildly and nerves tingling.
"You're a very hypocritical man."Persephone whispered against his neck, pressing her lips on his collarbones, making a trail of kisses back to his mouth. This was more like it. Distraction."But I like that, Kiba."
[Aww, that sucks... I hope you feel better soon! ]
Kiba could feel his breathing becoming a little more rapid, even though he was used to this. Although usually, he was the one doing what Seph was doing, so maybe that was why he felt so... breathless. Happy. Euphoric.
"Sorry..." he murmured softly, though he didn't sound very sorry at all. He kissed just above the neckline of her shirt, and started to kiss up her throat...
Suddenly he snapped out of it, staring at her in shock as he quickly pushed himself up and away from her, stepping away from the bed. "I shouldn't have done that."
[Thank you ^-^ I think I'm getting there!]
Kiba was definately skilled. His lips were gentle yet firm, and fluttering one moment and pulsing the next. An exciting kisser, to say the least, and one that actually managed a slight flush to arise in Persephone's checks themselves. Impressive. He whispered something, and it was just getting good before he pulled away.
"What do you mean you shouldn't have done that?" Persephone asked with a little pout, gazing at him with vivid blue eyes in her fan face. Her blonde hair was everywhere in little waves."I thought that was rather enjoyable."She slinked up, walking towards him."Did my breath smell?"
[Good! You'll be better in no time :D ]
Eyeing her cautiously, Kiba stepped away from her again, maintaining a good distance from her. It was seriously hard, because he had the strong urge to simply tackle her right there and kiss her again. But he couldn't do that. He wouldn't. The outcome would not be a good one, he was sure.
"I... You..." He looked away from her perfect body, and closed his eyes. "I can't, okay? I'm already starting to get attached, and I shouldn't be getting attached at all. I can't." He looked back up at her, his voice becoming almost a whisper. "I wish I could, I do."
Kiba was acting as if he was contagious or something. It was definately something Persephone wasn't used to, and she didn't like it. Not one bit. Usually guys acted the opposite of what Kiba was doing...
"Attached? To me?"The thought in itself was ridiculous. Her? No, Persephone was nothing other than a pretty face...He was pleading now, which was no fun. It was never fun when anyone begged to you. She sighed, sticking her lip out."Fine. We don't have to kiss."She forced herself to shrug like it was no big deal. So this was what it felt like to be rejected...
((Sorry to interrupt, but Nacho, are you still in the End of the World?))
[ Yeah I am. I just thought it stopped because so many people dropped out...? I'll post on it. Sorry for the confusion ]
Seph had a good poker face, but being around girls this long, Kiba could tell she was upset. Usually, if a girl was upset because of him - which was almost never - he would simply excuse himself and run for it.
But this... This was different. Well, not really, but it felt different somehow. As if he actually... No, no, he couldn't get attached; it would be bad for both of them. But she looked so dejected... "Fine. One kiss," he murmured without realising it. "But if you want any more, you'll have to earn it."
