Trunks felt a knot in his stomach seeing the agony linger on her face and couldn’t take his hands off her. He wiped a few stray tears out of her eyes and placed his thumb over her lower lip to stop it from quivering. Then without even thinking, he leaned in and softly pressed his lips against hers, his hands gently holding the back of her head.
Celari didn’t move and her arms hung at her sides. She felt warm, and then her hands slowly raised up and rested around his ribs as she accepted him. At first Trunks didn’t even notice her respond, but hearing her moan as he subconsciously slid his fingertips into her hair triggered reality to sink in, and he remembered Ion suggesting he was lying to himself about his feelings for her.
