I asked, pointing upward. We were down in the small valley where the truck was parked. Alex sat leaning against a rock; I was between his legs with my back against his chest, his arms around me as we stared up at the stars.
‘Yeah, that's the Seven Sisters, the Pleiades.’
He bent his head, and I caught my breath as his warm mouth nuzzled at my neck. I hadn't gotten even remotely used yet to how good it felt to be kissed by Alex.
‘It's so sexy how you know all of this,’ I said when I could speak again.
‘Yeah?’ I heard the grin in his voice. ‘I know the summer constellations, too. Will that get me bonus kisses?’
‘I think it might, actually.’”
