Adam opened the door, fumbled with the keys, and dropped them.
"Leave them," Moira said. She closed the door, and they stood silently in the main entrance for a moment. Then Adam looked up, put his arms around her, and closed his eyes.
The kiss lasted an eternity. Somewhere in the base of his spine a light exploded, sending shock waves through his body. She returned the passion, reaching around his back and running dagger fingernails up and down his inflamed spine.
Beyond his closed eyelids he perceived a flash of light, like a camera bulb. The kiss closed, and he leaned back, his eyes still shut.
"You've done this before," she whispered, her breath brushing against his cheek.
He opened his eyes a bit, and noticed something different in her blurred image. Their noses were touching; their arms wrapped around one another.
When his eyes opened all the way, he stared.
Her eyes, which were once dark blue, had become emerald with no whites. The pupils, dilated, stretched vertically, in slits.
The rush of hormones leveled out and finally drained from his system, replaced now with a confused fear. Slowly, he drew further from her. Her arms relaxed, fell to her sides. Adam's arms released her, but remained in position, as if he were clutching a thick force field surrounding her.
The tips of her ears extended a full two inches above her enormous hair, tapering to points.
