First day at the Sunnydale Carnival turned out a huge crowd, surprisingly.
"I didn't know there were this many people left. Strange what you'll find out during the daytime." Buffy said to herself as she arranged and set up the tickets and cash box in her booth.
"Come one come all! I'm here and I'm the best kisser here for all the beautiful ladies!" Xander shouted out at the people walking around the carnival. He looked around at the crowd noticing the strange looks from the women in the mix and the guys laughing and pointing.
"Yeah that'll get 'em alright." Buffy commented her friend at the booth right beside the one he was standing in.
"Well, Willow told me to watch her booth while she went to get a soda." Xander told the blonde.
"Did you happen to notice what the sign is above her booth?"
Xander leaned over the booth counter and craned his neck to look at the very noticeable sign in rainbow colors: Lesbian Kissing Booth! All pretty ladies are definitely welcome!
Xander blushed and stood back up. "Uh, well...I uh...Oh who cares, she won't make any money. I mean how many lesbians are in this town anyway."
"More than you know." Willow said standing right behind her best friend.
Xander jumped and turned around. "Will! Hey! Look Buff, the Willster has returned!" He said squirming.
Willow raised one brow. "Xander, don't you have your own STRAIGHT booth to look after?"
Xander smiled and made a hasty exit to his booth right beside of Buffy's.
Buffy giggled, "You love to see him all squirmy and nervous don'tcha?"
"It's what I do best." Willow giggled and looked out into the melee of people. "So what's the bet? Twenty tickets, thirty?" She asked putting her spool of tickets on the counter.
"Buffy said it's twenty five." Xander pulled from his pocket a tube of cherry flavored chap stick. He made kissing noises and rubbed his lips together. "All warmed up for the ladies!"
Buffy and Willow both rolled their eyes.
Buffy sheepishly pulled from her pocket and applied cotton candy lip gloss. She looked at the smirking Willow. "What? Guys like cotton candy." She said holding out the tube for Willow to take.
Willow held up her hand. "No thank you. I'm all nat-u-ral for da ladies." She said smiling and bouncing on her toes.
"Ya know Will, you are just too cute and here comes your first kissy person." Buffy nodded towards the tall, very shapely brunette headed towards Willow.
The redhead took a gulp and smiled to try to cover her nervousness. The woman walked up to Willow and placed her hands on the counter. "How much cutie?"
"Um, one dollar a ticket." She squeaked out.
The woman put down a five dollar bill. "I want a good one." She said smiling.
"Uh O-O.K. but no tong..." Before Willow could finish the woman pulled the redhead towards her and planted a very passionate tongue filled kiss.
Buffy stood there looking at her watch. "Five, four, three, two, one...O.K. times up."
The woman pulled back and planted one more little peck on Willow's lips. "Best five dollars I've spent in a long time." She whispered so only Willow could here.
Willow slowly opened her eyes. "Uh, uh, y-yeah. Thanks."
The woman stood up to her full height. "You're welcome."
Willow held up her hand and waved as the woman walked away. She turned towards Buffy but first thing that caught her eye was the open mouthed Xander. She rolled her eyes and looked at the blonde. "That was um interesting to say the least."
Buffy giggled. "I'm straight and even I'll admit she was a hottie. Hey, she might come back and you two can have some private smoochies?" Buffy wiggled her brows up and down.
"Buffy!" Willow blushed and turned away looking into the crowd again. "She's not my type anyway. She's too tall and brunette. Not my forte."
"Oh please! Every girlfriend you've ever had was a brunette!" Buffy said holding her hands on her hips.
"Yes and those relationships turned out so well. What? The last one tried her best to get kinky and wanted me throw oranges at her ass while she was getting herself off? I chose a real good one there, uh huh, yeah buddy."
Xander crashed into the counter of his booth almost toppling over the entire stand. Both women looked over and saw him getting to his feet. "Tripped over a rock." He lied trying to sound convincing.
Buffy turned around and faced the distraught redhead. "Will, you'll find her. She's somewhere, I promise. So cheer up and let's have fun today." She grinned.
Willow smiled at her friend. "Thanks Buffy. And...and you'll find Mister Right, maybe right here in the crowd. I bet he's looking for some blonde cotton candy lips to smooch."
Buffy grinned. "I hope so."
As the day went on Buffy, Willow and Xander had sold close to the same amount of tickets.
"Looks like I'm gonna win this girls. I've made seventeen dollars and that cute blonde promised she'll be back." He said with a gleam in his eye while he waved the money at the women.
"Don't count your chickens Xan. Willow's tied with you and I'm only a dollar short.
"Well, here comes my blonde and I bet she's looking for some more lip action from the Xan man!" He said proudly as the woman made her way up to his booth.
"Hello again." She said.
"Hello to you too." Xander said leaning in to her.
She put her hand on his chest. "Not so fast. Before you give me another kiss I want money."
"Huh?" Xander said shocked.
"You are my boyfriend now and as a girlfriend privilege I demand you give me money to buy me something to drink." The woman said holding out her hand.
Buffy and Willow looked at one another and mouthed 'girlfriend?'
"Girlfriend?!" Xander squeaked out. He cleared his throat. "I don't even know your name and this is just a kissing booth..."
"My name is Anya. I have bought sixteen tickets off you today and I might say that the other woman who kissed you made me very jealous so you have to make that up to me." She said holding her hands on her hips.
Xander stood there dumbstruck and handed over his money.
"Thank you." She counted the money and put it in her purse. She stood there looking at him for a minute.
Xander felt nervous. "Y-yes?"
"Aren't you going to escort me around the carnival and throw things at bottles and win me stupid stuffed animals?"
Xander smiled at her and walked out of his stand. He held out his arm and walked away with a smiling new girlfriend.
"What just happened?" Buffy asked slowly looking away from Xander to Willow.
"I don't have a clue on that one. But if that's what a spanking new relationship is like then I'll do without, thanks." Willow watched as a husky tall man who visited before walked up to Buffy's booth.
"Hi!" Buffy said enthusiastically.
The man smiled. "I was um wondering if you could possibly get away and come with me to grab a bite to eat?" He asked looking into Buffy's eyes.
The blonde melted right then and there. "I would love too." She said as she walked over to the exit of her stand. Her eyes went wide as she looked over to Willow. "You wouldn't mind would ya? I won't be long."
Willow smiled and waved her off. "Go. Eat. Have fun and make with the free smoochies." She giggled as she watched Buffy practically skip away with the man.
Willow sighed and sat down on the stool she put there earlier. "Come one come all to the lonely lesbian kissing booth." She pouted and looked down at her hands.
"Excuse me." A small voice said.
Willow traced her eyes up slowly and looked at the most beautiful blonde she had laid eyes on.
"How much are your tickets?" She said blushing.
Willow jumped up from her stool, tripping over her feet and only saving herself from a mouthful of dirt on the ground by grabbing the counter. She looked up at the smiling apparently shy blonde.
"Are you alright?" The blonde asked as Willow got to her feet.
"Yeah, sometimes my feet wanna go one way and my body wants to go the other." Willow smiled from ear to ear.
"I was wondering how much your tickets are?"
Willow was lost in a sea of blue eyes. "Hum?" She snapped out of her revere. "Oh! There a dollar a piece."
The woman pulled out a dollar and laid it on the counter.
Willow picked up the dollar and put it in her pocket. She leaned forward at the same time the blonde did.
Their lips met and sparks flew. Willow felt like fireworks were going off and she heard bells ringing in the background. The kiss seemed to last for hours if someone were to ask the redhead.
Both women pulled away when they heard someone behind the blonde woman clear their throat.
"I was wondering if I could buy some more tickets doll." The brunette from earlier in the day stood there with a twenty dollar bill in her hand.
The blonde woman looked at Willow and the other woman back to Willow. What she felt when she kissed the redhead was, as some would say, magical. She wanted to stay there all day and through eternity standing there kissing the amazing woman and she would be damned if she was going to let this OTHER woman take that away from her. She looked in her purse and pulled out a hundred dollar bill and laid it on the counter. She reached over and stuffed all the tickets in her purse and looked at the brunette. "She's booked for the rest of the day. Buh bye now."
The brunette was shocked but walked away not saying another word.
Willow gave a huge grin. "Thanks." She handed the woman back her money. "You really didn't have to."
The blonde reached over and tucked the money into Willow's pocket. She pulled her closer. "Now how about my hundred kisses."
Willow smiled and didn't hesitate to pay up to the beautiful customer.
