"That did it. Ileni launched herself forward, with more determination than grace, and kissed him. After a startled moment, he responded, his hands coming up hesitantly to her face, then fumbling to her shoulders. After another moment - or several -  Ileni leaned back and stared at him in disbelief. Sorin flushed to the roots of his hair and dropped his hands, a bit unsteadily, the first movement she had ever seen him make that was less than completely graceful. "I told you. You're the first girl I ever - um-" Ileni started to laugh. "You're one of the assassins, famed for their allure and irresistibility to women. And you've never kissed a girl?" "Who would I have kissed?" "I guess I assumed that would be part of your training. You know, how to seduce women to make it easier to kill their husbands. Or something like that." "Maybe it's an advanced class," Sorin said. The terseness in his voice didn't bother Ileni, but there was embarrassment there, too, so she made an effort to look less amused. Sorin leaned toward her, his cheeks still tinged red, and said, "Either way, I've had no prior training. You'll have to start from scratch" Upon consideration, that didn't seem like a bad idea at all.

This one was light on the swoons, but I really enjoyed this moment. This was a good read.
