No Kiss Tonight

By Ed Dzitko 

“She’s there, near the mistletoe,” Billy said. “Wow.”

“So… go over there,” said Al. 

“I can’t. Nobody takes mistletoe seriously. I’ve never seen a single mistletoe kiss.”

“So what? Billy, now’s your chance.”

“I don’t know. What if she walks away, Al, doesn’t step closer? People’ll see. I’ll be embarrassed the rest of the night.”

“Just go. Put an arm around her and lead her a step forward. Then give her a peck.”

“I don’t know,” said Billy, anxious now, sweat forming on his brow.

‘Bill, just go. Now.”

“Whew. I’ll go. Right out the front door. See ya, Al.”
