— Boredom Strikes on Sunday || Cian & Christina
Listening to Christina talk about her breakup changed the whole atmosphere of the room. Minutes ago they were racing down the hallway. Now they were cuddled together talking about her ex. He didn’t mind though. Cian wanted to be there to make her feel better, to help her forget. ” I’m sorry,” he said, looking into her eyes. “Everything happens for a reason, right? Maybe… You guys weren’t meant for each other. Maybe you were supposed to get a lesson out of it.” He took her hand and gently squeezed it. “Either way, break ups aren’t easy. But you’ll be okay,” he added with a reassuring smile.
He held her closer as she snuggled into him. She was so soft and her hair smelled like… strawberries. Cian didn’t mind holding her like that. In fact, he didn’t even want to let go. But Christina soon jumped up and headed for her mini fridge. He got up and followed her to the fridge. Things were already awkward. He pondered whether taking a risk would creep her out completely. Pushing the thought to the back of his mind, Cian helped her back up. “It’s okay,” he said, his confidence slowly coming to him. He closed the gap between them and his lips brushed against hers. He kept telling himself that he was only doing this to comfort her, but he knew that it was because he really did like her.
Christina was taken by surprise with that kiss. At first she tensed herself completely, her eyes wide open in shock, but then she gave into the kiss and closed her eyes, putting her hand on his cheek. As the kiss progressed, Christina began to realize what she was doing. She wasn’t even fully over Jesse and she was already kissing someone else? She bit her lip to break off the kiss and looked down at her hands, “I’m sorry, Cian. I- I can’t do this…” she told him and slowly looked up at him, “I like you a lot, I really do! It’s just that I’m not really over Jesse and- I don’t know- I don’t want to hurt you or anything…” she mumbled and gave him a half smile.
