I am trying to answer a question on a game quiz. When a "s" is added to a certain word it does not become a plural but changes the word entirely. The word can be used as a verb or a noun. I Can not figure this out. Can you help me?

I thought bus was going to work but then they added a clue. The puzzle now reads: If you add an "s" to the end of a certain word, you will not form a plural word. You will instead make a brand new word, wich can be either a verb or a noun. You begin by not having any in the world. What is the brand-new word?
I agree with Coffa- 'buss'means kiss, as a noun and verb, and you start life without any kisses:
That makes sense but I am going to wait until I am sure. We lose points in this game if we guess wrong.
I thought of the word "cares" add an s makes caress. Caress can be either a verb or noun. Any Thoughts?
That's a good one and fits the pattern and clue.
I answered the puzzle and cares/caress was correct. Thanks
What did we win?
Coffa will buss you later.
