Those Three Little Words…

How did she do it? I smack the book into my forehead. Bang it over and over again, hoping the seventh knock against my skull might be the magical one. Osmosis. I need to somehow soak up her gift. The ability to capture a kiss in three little words.

So what, you may ask, are those three little words?

“Sweet, soft demolition.” — Kelly Creagh, NEVERMORE

Kelly Creagh manages to do in three little words what most writers struggle to achieve in three overly-written paragraphs, and still does exquisite justice to Varen and Isobel’s kiss. Masterful. I suppose it’s true that sometimes less really is more.
