KISS IN THE SNOW

by Linda Cullen

OH! Catherine could barely contain her excitement when she opened the curtains in her apartment and saw the newly fallen snow on her balcony high above the city streets. She gulped some coffee as she rushed to dress in her warm woolen sweater, threw on her coat, and wrapped a scarf around her neck.

She ran out the door, putting on her gloves, then she raced to the drainage tunnel in the park, eager to share her delight with Vincent! She tapped hurriedly on the pipes, but before she could finish, he appeared, with the soft glow of warm light from within shining behind him. He blinked from the blinding sun on the new blanket of snow that covered all and muted the browns and greys of fall. And then his eyes adjusted to the brightness and he saw his love. Catherine!

He gently drew her to him for their welcome embrace full of longing, when suddenly a wall of snow slid off the top of the tunnel opening – landing on their heads, causing them to giggle. As they laughed and hugged, they lost their balance and tumbled together into the fluffy whiteness on the ground, and all around them shimmered and swirled in the sunlight.

As Catherine began to show Vincent how to make angels in the downy flakes, Vincent leaned over and they shared their first kiss in the snow. But they didn’t feel the cold seeping into their clothes. Their shared passion grew from within, melting the frozen powder that encased them.

“Come inside, to my chamber, “ said Vincent. “There, I will kiss your hands warm as we sit in the candlelit glow, and I’ll read to you as you lean against me, warming us both.”
