Friends for ages

Norwegian wood  Extract from P7
"Naoko took her left hand from her pocket and squeezed my hand"

We'd been friends for ages of course
Really this act was something more
It stayed there belonging to me
I squeezed her back to say hello
Her fingers traced over my palm
Glancing up from my open book
I looked into her laughing eyes
For one moment I thought of him
But blanked him out of my mind saying
"Do you want me as much as I...?"
Her fingers reached up to still my lips
My heart was beating rapidly
I felt so guilty already
We were going to make love now
