We step out of the cab and stand in front of the boarding house. We gave up our house here in France years ago, with all the hustle and bustle of having 7 children, we didn’t think we would have the chance to come back to France, but here we are.
” I have another surprise for you.”, Rob says. “Another surprise?” I’m not sure I can handle anything else. Especially after the surprise he gave me in the plane over here, I giggle. I’m too old to giggle for goodness sake, but Rob really surprised me when he convinced me to join him in the bathroom of the plane to join the mile high club.
I blush remembering the excitement and the thrill of doing something like that, hoping not to get caught, but unable to stop ourselves. The counter had not been the most comfortable spot, but when Rob pushed my skirt up and sat me on the sink, I… “Merrilee, are you listening to me?”, Rob says. I blush again and try to pay attention to what he is telling me. “Sorry, I drifted off for a second.”, I say.
“Yea, you looked like you were a million miles away. You ok?”, he asks. “Yea, I was only about a mile away though”, I say as I look up. Rob grins and kisses me hungrily. “When we get into our new house, I’ll make love to you properly.”, he growls in my ear.
“Yea, well… There was nothing proper about what happened on the … wait, what? Our new house? What are you talking about, Rob?”, I ask. “Our new house. I know you loved the house we had here years ago and unfortunately that one was not for sale, but I did find us a little house not to far away from it.”, he explains. “We have some paperwork to sign tomorrow though, so for tonight we will stay somewhere else.”, he says. He takes the bags upstairs and puts them in our room. “The boarding house is fine, but not very private. Not appropriate for a romantic second honeymoon. So, I took the liberty of renting a private camping spot for the evening. We can leave everything here, just grab a swim suit and nightgown, we won’t need a lot for just tonight. “, Rob says. I grab a small overnight bag, “A camping spot? I’m not sure about camping.”, I say wearily. “Don’t worry, it will be fun and it’s private. No one around for miles, you won’t have to worry when I make you scream in pleasure tonight.”, he growls again.
We make it to the camping spot and it’s beautiful. It sits right on the river and you can see the mountains in the background. The tent is large and roomy, it actually looks very comfortable. There is a bath house and grill, even a bonfire, some floats and horseshoe court. Rob grabs a fishing pole and we head down to the river, “I’m going to catch our dinner.”, he exclaims. “Ok, sweetheart., you do that. I am going to relax and float around for a while. I’m wore out.”, I say. I pop into the tent to change into my bathing suit and grab a float then walk to the water, it is surprisingly warm. I jump in and lay back on the float, letting the sun shine down on me. “Ahh, this feels wonderful.”, I sigh.
Rob fishes for a while, catching several fish that he takes to the cooler to put on ice. I must have dozed off, because all of a sudden I feel a splash of water and Rob is floating next to me. He puts his legs over mine and we float locked together for a while. I’ve not felt this relaxed in years, I think to myself. Rob lazily starts rubbing his foot up and down my leg.
I’m surprised how arousing this is and flip myself over and tip Rob’s float. I splash him and then wrap my arms around him and kiss him. He presses his hands to the small of my back and pulls me closer. I grin as I pull away and try to dunk him. He growls again, and tries to grab at my hand to pull me close again. I manage to pull away and take off running out of the water, Rob looks confused for moment then takes off after me.
I pull my bathing suit off and let it trail behind me, running toward the tent. I turn to look at him as I open the tent flap and blow him a kiss. He runs faster than I’ve seen him before and suddenly, he is on top of me. I squeal with delight as he runs his hands over my body, maybe the secluded camping spot was a good idea.The next morning, we sleep late. I grill the fish Rob caught and we light the bonfire.
We have a marvelous day, just playing and being together. I challenge him to a game of horseshoes and then he finds a frisbee which he throws to me.
We have to meet the realtor before dinner to sign the papers on the house. We pack up and head into town. We sign the papers and have a taxi driver pick our things up from the boarding house and deliver them to the house. Rob wants to take me out to dinner and dancing afterward so we walk to a nearby dance club.
We get to the club and Rob pulls me close on the dance floor. One of my favorite songs is playing and Rob knows this.
He sings softly in my ear as Michael Buble plays in the background. Hold on. This song seems to speak of our life. Things will go wrong, things will get us down, but we always have each other to bring us through.
“There’s a thousand ways for things to fall apart
But it’s no one’s fault, no, it’s not my fault
And maybe all the plans we made might not work out
But I have no doubt even though it’s hard to see
I’ve got faith in us, I believe in you and me”
“So hold on to me tight, hold on, I promise it’ll be alright
‘Cause it’s you and me together and baby all we’ve got is time
So hold on to me, hold on to me tonight”
“There’s so many dreams that we have given up
Take a look at all we’ve got
And with this kind of love what we’ve got here is enough
So hold on to me tight, hold on, I promise it’ll be alright
‘Cause we are stronger here together than we could ever be alone
Just hold on to me, don’t you ever let me go
Hold on to me, it’s gonna be alright, hold on to me tonight”
His breath on my neck and his soft voice in my ear drives me to the brink of insanity, Rob knows just how to make me feel special. We dance for hours, until the club closes. We quickly make our way to our new home. It strikes me that I’ve not even seen the house yet and honestly at this moment, I couldn’t care less.
My mind is preoccupied with Rob. He scoops me into his arms and carries me to the house. He unlocks the door and flips on the light, he kicks the door closed with his foot. He takes the stairs two at a time as he finds the bedroom and sets me down on my feet again. He slowly peels my dress down my shoulders, he leans down and kisses my neck. I shimmy out of dress and unbutton his shirt.
Soon we are both just in our underwear, he pushes me roughly up against the wall. He cups my face in his hands and kisses me thoroughly, he explores the inside of my mouth with his tongue. I can barely catch my breath as he runs his hands down my side. He leads me to the bed and climbs behind me, he massages my shoulders. I lean my head back to kiss him again.
He quickly flips us both over and covers me with his body. “I love you Merrilee. Never in my life could I imagine being without you.”, he whispers in my ear.
(I want to thank my online friend MasqueradeDiva3 for the beautiful dress she gifted me! Merrilee really loved it and Rob loved taking it off of her!)
