Just Kiss Already Blogfest
A fiery redhead with steely blue eyes, Ash’s body art was a wildly abstract storm of color. The art merged with the pattern of his wings, as if his wings weren’t trophy enough, he’d had his body tattooed in the same pattern in order to emphasize their glory
“Where’ve you been?” Dusty asked, slapping Ash on the shoulder.
“Far and wide, man. You know me, I’ve got to see it all,” at this point he noticed Holly and gave her an appreciative once over. “And try it all,” he said. “What have we here?” he asked, sidling up to her and breathing her in, a lascivious grin on his face. “You dipping into another well, Dusty?”
“Okay, Ash, keep it in your pants, buddy,” Shadow said as he and Willow caught up with them. He wrapped a possessive arm around Holly’s waist, his hand coming to rest on her hip. Against her will she melted into him. “This well’s already spoken for.”
“Seriously? Damn. I’m always like a day too late," Ash said. "Don’t get me wrong, congratulations are definitely in order, and wow, she’s a hot one.” He leaned in and kissed Holly on the mouth, the tip of his tongue just barely caressing her lips before he pulled away.
Surprised, Holly jerked away, taken aback by his boldness, but sensing his amusement at her reaction.
“Just a taste of what you’re missing, if you ever decide Shadow’s not man enough for you,” he said, and winked at her.
I like Ash, he's a fun character. I think I'm going to have to bring him back in another novel. Maybe give him a love of his own.
Now go check out the rest of the kisses in the fest!
