Hiv by cut without exposed object in air .

Actually we only kissed each other . But as we were kissing that time she started rubbing my hand with her hand . In between suddenly we both scratched by an object between her palm and my skin . After i noticed that that object was a little piece of my broken phone glass . Now i am worried as i don’t know her hiv status .  And second thing  i am worried is about that glass object as when it scratched it was under both skin . So it was not exposed in air and with no time gap . Both have small scathes and i noticed something dry tiny in my skin .  Is this a problem regarding hiv ?

HIV is never transmitted by hands, arms, legs, or other any body parts EXCEPT penises, anuses and vaginas - even if those other body parts have cuts and scrapes on them.

Air was present, this is not a risk. Only risks are unprotected vaginal or anal sex (INSIDE THE BODY) and injecting drugs with shared IV needles (INSIDE THE BODY). No risk

Please i want reply at these two points . Please if possible. Thank you.
I didn’t find this type exposure  when searched on this site .
no risk for reason stated
Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air  (hand, body,  fluids,  maybe blood, glass etc. ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv. Note that 2 of them require a penis and the third requires a hollow injecting shared needle - there are no OTHER ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk.
Hiv is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good. Blood and cuts would not be relevant in your situation since the hiv has become effectively dead, so you don't have to worry about them to be sure that you are safe.
There is no reason for a person to test when they are safe. The advice took into consideration that the other person might be positive, so move on and enjoy life instead of thinking about this non-event. hiv prevention is straightforward since there are only 3 ways you can become infected, so next time you wonder if you had a risk, ask yourself this QUESTION. "Did I do any of the 3?" Then after you say "No, I didn't" you will know that it's time to move on back to your happy life.
No one got hiv from what you did during 40 years of hiv history and no one will get it in the next 40 years of your life either.  You can do what you did any time and be safe from hiv.
The other person's status is irrelevant when you have no exposure to live virus.
@AnxiousNoMore Sir if something scratches in between both skin even then it is not exposed to air ?
Reread about 40.
