The Magic Touch
What is the magic touch? To me, it's that electric moment that happens the first time two people touch, that instant connection and chemistry that is so rare and so special. Below, I'm including an excerpt of that moment from my novella, A Flowerpot Christmas Tree.
I started to knead the clay, very aware that I was being watched and evaluated. It didn’t take long for Noah to break in.
“Come on, you gotta really get in there, work the clay. It won’t break.” Noah was demonstrating with his own hunk of clay, his strong hands squeezing and twisting. I bit my bottom lip. “Keep going til it’s soft and pliable. Don’t worry, your hand strength will build up over time.”
Once the clay had reached the right consistency, we turned to Jane. Noah stood behind me and took both of my hands in his, guiding my fingers over the clay. The gesture was innocent enough, but the feel of his skin was more intoxicating than the wine. His body heat enveloped me, and I closed my eyes and leaned into him before I could stop myself. Noah stepped in closer, pushing against me.
“There,” he whispered, “see how it responds to your touch.” His mouth grazed my ear when he said it, and my pulse kicked into overdrive.
