Taste of Rain


Sitting in her living room, sipping her freshly brewed hot coffee, Celia looked outside her window as she watched the rain fall bringing in the sweet memories of the past. It was a Saturday night and like every Saturday night, she was unwinding herself from all the stress of the week. Today, it was slightly different because of the rain and the nostalgia it brought with it. 

The thunder rolled and it made her think of the day she had her first kiss with John, now her husband since the last 10 years. She closed her eyes and tried to re-live the moment.

----

It was raining heavily and John and Celia were struck in such a stormy weather.   John had asked Celia out on a date and she readily agreed suggesting to watch a movie so that she could playfully fight with him and later on snuggle against him but nature had some different plans. Although, the movie night was successful, now they were struck in the rain trying to cover themselves but were convinced that this rain won't stop and decided to go out in the rain walking and reaching their destination.

In the middle of the walk, John looked at Celia. Her face was sparkling as the rain drops that were falling which made John feel week in the knees. He couldn't make out if it was due to the lights outside or he never really noticed her such deeply before. His heart was pounding, beating louder like the thunder just roared which made Celia hug John as tightly as she could, scaring her for a moment. 

"You're beautiful, more beautiful than the storm around us. Your eyes have caught mine and I can't seem to look away" said John. Celia blushed and smiled at John while still holding him. They both got closer till there was no more distance that could separate them anymore. The thunder roared in the sky in the tune of their heartbeats. They both embraced each other, it didn't mattered that they were wet from head to toe. They cared for nothing else except for the fact that both of them were there in the magical moment perfect for any lover. Celia felt John's breath on her neck as he got closer, the warmth of his face, the rain on his lips. They kissed while the thunder roars and the lightning cracks. Their love had never been this stronger before. After the kiss, John whispered into her ear "I love you" and Celia whispered it back unable to speak more, enchanted by the spell.


----

The doorbell rang and Celia was quickly awakened by the nostalgia she was experiencing. She opened the door and it was John who grabbed her arm and quickly pulled her outside in the rain and kissed her.  Nothing had really changed in these ten years!

P.S This is my first attempt in writing fiction, stories and romance. Glad to try this as well.
