That point hadn't occurred to Nikolas, but Daphne was right. Somehow they had often managed to wind up alone in secluded spots while at school, and those times usually saw them actually getting on. It hadn't been his intention now - he just didn't think it would behoove either of them to make a scene in the middle of a street crowded with busy shoppers and tourists. If it was fitting, though, who was he to argue?
"It's interesting, I'll give you that." Suddenly Nikolas wasn't really thinking all that much about whether this was a good idea, or even the right moment for it. What was the worst that could happen? It wasn't as though the idea hadn't come up before. As far as he was concerned, it was about time someone did something about it. With as little pretense as was possible by this point, Nikolas leaned forward and, a hand lightly moving to the side of her face, kissed Daphne.
