RTW -- First Kiss

Road Trip Wednesday is a ‘Blog Carnival,’ where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question that begs to be answered. In the comments, you can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This Week's Topic:
Compare your first kiss with your favorite characters first kiss?

My favorite character's first kiss was the one between Daine and Numair in Realms of the Gods by Tamora Pierce. Technically it wasn't either character "first" kiss but it was their first together. It's desperate and passionate and revealing and raw. It's the first time Daine finally faces the truth that Numair is in love with her even though it's been obvious since the third book. I read that scene more than any other as a middle schooler and I'm still in love with it.

It was the exact opposite of my real first kiss. Mine was with my boyfriend of a month sitting on the floor watching a movie at a lock-in. When he went in for it, I thought he would never kiss me. It was short and sweet when he finally did.

I forgot about Daine and Numair's fantastic kiss! I can still picture the entire scene, but normally when I talk about Tamora Pierce's books I always mention Alanna. Thanks for highlighting another of her great series'!

SOunds like a great one (from the book). The real life version is close to my own experience!

I've seen so many horror stories today, glad yours wasn't one of them!

Both kisses sound really sweet. :)
