Excerpt

The sound of raised angry voices broke the silence in the snow-covered park. "Robert! Donít you dare walk away from me without settling this once and for all."

Rob chose to ignore the girl he had known all of his life, walking quickly away from her not wanting to continue the argument. Claire, her blood still up threw a snowball in frustration, hitting him squarely at the back of his head. Rob turned in silence staring at her; she looked back half shocked at what she had done and half defiantly.

She read Robís look as slowly the twinkle gleamed in his eyes, turning his expression mischievous. Claire realised too late and turned to run, but was soon tackled from behind and brought down where she lay the breath knocked out of her, face down in the snow.

Rob turned her over and gently rubbed the snow from her face. She looked up at him, the outline of his face blocking out the sunís glare, and looking into his eyes forgot to be on her guard. Rob's hand slowly scooped up some snow, his eyes never leaving Claire's. Suddenly he brought it down on her, rubbing her cheeks with it roughly, making her cheeks glow rosy red with the cold, from which her blue eyes shone out brightly. Claire shrieked, struggling ineffectively.

Rob grinned down at his best friend, and all at once his expression softened. His eyes wandered over her rosy cheeks and his hand came up to rest on her black curly hair. 'What a beauty she is' he realised with a shock for the first time. His childhood mate had blossomed into a young lady formally unnoticed by him. Rob instinctively moved in closer and Claireís questioning eyes closed as Robís lips brushed gently over hers. They remained for a few minutes more in the snow holding each other, unsure now what to do next.

"Rob" murmured Claire, feeling the wetness of the snow seeping through to her clothes. "Iím getting cold."

Feeling slightly relieved, Rob laughed softly "What a mood killer you are" he teased as he stood up drawing Claire to her feet. They walked homewards together, content to stroll silently, both thinking over what had just happened.

Over the following months this new bond between the two best friends deepened as they began to come to terms with these new feelings and recognise that their relationship was slowly changing to that of boyfriend and girlfriend.
