To help wrap up our week of kissing and telling, today's post is from a blogger named Ashes who reached out to Cheesy Blogger with her own kissing story. It's a super cute tale of a nerve wrecking first kiss that turned into a happily ever after story. God I love those kind of stories.
Enjoy Ashes' kiss and tell, then go check out her blog, Up From the Ashes.
Hi, my name is Ashes. I try and keep up with my blog Up From the Ashes at http://adventuresofalittlelight.blogspot.com/
so I'm a little nervous. I've never really been part of a group like
this so, please regard me kindly... wait, that's a Japanese phrase damn.
Well you get the idea.
So I want to share my story for the people who got reactions to their first kiss that wasn't the reaction they expected.
from a SUPER strict christian household I was sorta taught:
Kissing=Babies! so no Kissing! Not that I would've kissed anyone to
begin with. First of all, I was way too pragmatic a teenager to do that.
Second of all, boys were my buds not mating prospects.
Then I met him
and nothing was ever the same.
His name was Jex and he had blue eyes filled with lightning and the
kind of cocky grin that pulled me in like nothing else. As our
relationship progressed I found out that he was a little too chivalrous
for my own good. Oh yes, he was freaking Galahad. I despaired that he
would ever kiss me.
So I had to take things into my own hands or I was going to explode.
chance came sooner than I thought. We were talking one day and he was
illustrating something that had happened to him recently and told me to
pucker up as part of the illustration. Ha HA!
I did as asked and
before he had a chance to get whatever point across he was trying to
convey I gave him a quick kamikaze kiss. I was very proud of myself, my
first kiss was a sneak attack and I didn't miss!
Jex, however, was not very happy with me. "Why did you do that?!" He was aghast and a little angry.
we've been dating for almost a year. And I really really
wanted to kiss you, but you didn't seem like you were ever going to
instigate it so...." I started to explain, a little shakily because
'anger' was not the reaction I was going for. Joy, a smile, awkwardness
maybe but not anger. My little 19 year old heart was broken, why didn't
my boyfriend want to kiss me?
"But you just ruined it!" Jex huffed.
My cluelessness slightly surpassed my heartbreak at this point. "Ruined what?"
dream! You wanted to have your first kiss on your wedding day!" Jex was
back to being his usual calm self but he was still glaring daggers at
To this day we still argue about where he got this
ridiculous idea. He still insists that it was me and not one of his ex's
that had this ideal. I still have no idea where this came from.
Despite this first kiss backfiring on me, Jex and I got married after novel worthy drama.
Thanks so much for sharing Ashes!!!
