It was just as Star had imagined. ONLY BETTER.
Star feels her body feeling lusty. The psychical contact of Marco's legs right at her hips, makes her feel all the more aroused. More than Tom EVER COULD. The kiss is smooth and tender. A kiss of genuine love meant for nobody else. Star can almost feel the hearts on her cheeks starting to glow.
Star does not miss her demon-ex-boyfriend's kisses AT ALL. Though those moments were sweet and affectionate, Tom's grip of his lips just felt pressured and too tight. The touch of lips that gesture that this very person does not want anyone to steal his girl. Possessive-type-boyfriend.
Star is right now falling back, purposely, onto the couch. Taking Marco along with her, he did not complain. His hands landed right at her face, and, looking deeply into each other's eyes: their eyes shining: Star has never seen Marco's eyes SHINE THIS MUCH.
This must be what true love is, Star feels. To have someone love you so much that their eyes twinkle at you. That they look at you with an awe expression and just want to hold onto you. "M-Marco?" Star said right now. She stammered, but not intentionally. Feeling too aroused to speak normally. "Would-would you want me to wear something?"
"Anything specific, you mean?" "Well, it could be anything." Star is telling Marco with a smile on her face. "How about...my hoodie?" "Your-your hoodie?" Star is surprised. She never would have guessed that Marco would want to see her in his own, signature, hoodie. Marco has already nodded to Star's alarm. "But, you don't like it sweaty from someone else, remember?"
"Star," Marco said, closing Star's mouth. "It doesn't matter." "Not when I love someone." Blue eyes twinkling, Star feels her heart beating. SO FAST. Love-struck and feeling SO FLATTERED.
"Plus," Marco is adding on. "I know you like the smell of it." "Wh-what?!" "Whoever told you that?!" Star screeched. "Um, word got out." "By whom?!" "I never told you but, Ponyhead told me." "Before you got into your relationship with Tom." "She um, didn't want to keep her mouth closed." "Ponyhead."
Star is rolling her eyes right now. The very first best friend she ever made, she cannot believe Ponyhead would tell Marco that type of secret. But, maybe it's not a bad thing. After all, Marco loves me back. But, what changed his mind? Star wonders.
"Marco?" "Yeah, Star?" "What...changed your mind of wanting me to be your girlfriend?" "It just...felt natural, you know?" Marco answered. "I realized you were the right type of girl for me." "So I followed my heart and went for you."
"I just never knew that...you would be occupied." Star heard a bit of a crack in Marco's voice just then. She still does not blame him for feeling upset even now, at knowing that she was dating Tom, instead of him.
"Let's not focus on that detail, Marco." Star said right now.
"How about that hoodie instead, eh?" Grin so big, Marco can't help to chuckle at Star. She looked so playful and cute just then. Plus, her peppy-type-attitude is always so funny.
