Momentarily, her hand fell away, as did her gaze, and she turned her face back, only to feel his lips brush against her cheek. Her smile was soft and fleeting as she swung one leg over the broom so that she was sitting sideways with her knees touching one another. She turned her face toward him fully, her gaze all at once tentative and bright.
Zi Shang leaned forward and gently pressed her lips to his.
