I woke up to the sun shining in the windows while in the arms of my lovely husband. I knew by now that waking him up was not an easy task. If I tried he would surely just pull me back into his strong arms and give me a "You sleep, too," just as he had done the morning after I had finally admitted to myself that I had feelings for him. Smiling at the memory, I gave him a peck on the cheek.
"Is that all I get?" he asked, eyes popping open.
"I thought you were sleeping!"
"How could I sleep with you stirring around?"
"You've done it plenty before."
"Well, today is different. It's your birthday, and I've been excited thinking about your presents for weeks."
What kind of presents are we talking about here? Just as I though that, I saw him getting a box out from under the bed. I opened it. Inside was a simple but lovely dress in a light shade of pink. I then read the card that came with it.
I've cleared my schedule so we can spend all day together. Then tonight-or however long we can control ourselves-I'll take that dress off.
