Elena placed her hands in her lap and fidgeted. “I guess I should get going, then.”
He stood up as she did and walked with her to the door.
“Thanks for the singing lessons,” she said.
“Thanks for helping me with my songs,” he said as he leaned over her in the doorway. “Maybe we can work on some more material over the summer?”
His face was inches from her and all Elena could think of was touching it. “Um, sure,” she whispered. “I work during the summer but you know—”
He leaned in and kissed her gently on the lips. “I’ll give you a call after school is over.”
She nodded and slipped out under his arm, willing herself not to faint. She glanced back at him as he stood leaning against the doorway watching her leave. She begged herself not to trip as she made her way to the end of the corridor. As she rounded the corner, she leaned against the wall to breathe for a moment.  Oh my God, he’d kissed her.  She touched her lips in amazement.
