An Excerpt: The Fine Art of Keeping Quiet by Charity Tahmaseb
So we keep going, up the driveway and the three steps onto the front porch. There, the lamplight turns everything yellow, even Sam’s eyes, which look more like autumn than summer right now. I should open the door and go inside. My fingers are ice, my nose threatening to run. My teeth, which I’ve hardly thought of all day, prick at my upper lip. Insidious words pop into my mind.
Can you even imagine anyone wanting to kiss that? I can’t remember why I ever thought she was pretty.
“Thanks for helping me today,” I say despite my teeth.
“Thanks for helping me. What did I tell you? It’s like the Montagues and Capulets, only with scripts instead of swords—and a tree branch.”
“See you tomorrow?”
“I’ll text you.”
We don’t move, like earlier in the garage, when it felt like the very air changed. It does that now, becomes hard to breathe. I sway forward, slightly. I don’t mean to—it just happens. Sam takes my hands, squeezes them. Then he sways forward.
His kiss is so warm, it should melt all the icicles hanging from the eaves. My heart beats so hard, it should shatter all my ribs. When he breaks the kiss, and I suck in cold air, I feel like I’m plunged from a warm dream into an icy bath.
“Tomorrow!” He dashes down the stairs and into the night.
In that single word, I hear his promise. We will see each other tomorrow. We will practice. We will … kiss?
