Awkward Kisses One Shot Megan and OctavianI was too busy having a staring contest with Octavian from across the dining hall that I didn’t hear her at first. Ok, so it was more of smiles and laughter, as if we knew what the other would say, but our eyes wouldn’t leave each other. I had barely touched my dinner that night because of it.“Megan! Snap out of it!”“Hhhn?” I turned to see that Courtney had scooted closer to me.

I walked over to my shoes and slipped them on.I cringed when I heard his voice.“I missed this.”I felt his arms surround me.“You need to work on not shaking the bed as much when you get up. It ruins the whole ‘I’m trying to sneak out’ effect.”I turned so we faced each other.“You know me to well.”One kiss. One awkward kiss was all we had before I headed for the doors. I left my weapons, my shield, and my backpack where I set them the night before.“Is this it? You were gone for nearly two months, and after one night back, you are just going to leave again?”“I served my years. You know that.
