I looked over at Shannon. Neither of us made any sort of move.
“It’s that or strip,” James said.
James and Harry started chanting. “Off, off, off…” Andy smiled uncomfortably.
Shannon started to snigger.
Then she crawled over to me and stared into my face. Naturally, the boys fell silent as they watched. Dark hair, long lashes. I’d always been envious, but up close like that it was difficult not to laugh. Each time she put her lips close to mine one of us would start to giggle and that would set the other off.
“I’m sorry, I can’t,” she said.
James grinned. “Then you have to get naked. You know the rules.” I knew he fancied Shannon. They all did. I was just her sidekick.
Shannon rolled her eyes. “Fine. Come on, Hannah, we can do this.”
Through the giggles, our mouths met.
It wasn’t unpleasant. In fact, for the briefest moment my stomach clenched as I felt her lips move against mine. I could hear the boys cheering. I didn’t care. Shannon held the sides of my face and I relaxed into the kiss, closing my eyes.
When we broke apart, she grinned. “Actually, I enjoyed that.”
