Our conversation reached a lull, and I felt a little awkwardness creep into the atmosphere. So I used the opportunity to lean in and kiss Karen on the lips. It was a soft, quick kiss that sent thrills shooting throughout my body. I pulled back, and our eyes met for a brief moment before she took me in her arms and began kissing me passionately, deeply. Her lips were soft and smooth! As our tongues mingled, she ran her hand through my hair and caressed my face, something my husband rarely did anymore.
