Synopsis:

“The Kissing Law” is the epic struggle of Michael Sheppard as he fights to keep a young girl off the streets in Denver, Colorado. He was mowing his lawn when he first met her. She was tall, thin and had short-cropped, blonde hair. At first he thought she was a boy. “I’m Kim,” she said walking toward him. She was wearing a Rockies baseball cap, sort of cockeyed, and had a small glove on her left hand. He stopped mowing and looked at her. “Where do you live, Kim?” “In the big house on the hill. I live mostly in the night,” she explained. “...roaming the streets of Denver.” He smiled. “Aren’t you ever scared?” “Why? I’m the real killer on the scene. I carry a Luger. Bought it from an old drunk near the mall. He was okay. Actually nice. But right after he warned me about the dangers of the night, he collapsed next to a big, square garbage container. I think he croaked there.” She glanced up at him. “Are we going to be friends?” He couldn’t help laughing. “Maybe. We’ll have to wait and see.” He already knew she was in love with him. With the first snow came her 13th birthday. He had seen the postman coming down the hill and stepped outside and placed a couple envelopes in the tray for pickup. He had absently left his door open, planning to go right back in after grabbing his new mail. In the meantime, Kim walked into his house without knocking. “Today is my birthday,” she announced. “I’m 13 years old.” She wants a kiss, he thought absently. “You should come to my house this afternoon,” she told him. “We’re serving cake and ice cream.
