With just a click – Chapter 9

How to describe that first moment in his arms? I don’t think any poet on earth could make it justice. But I’ll try. It felt so right. Like coming home. Paqui ran into his arms and he bent his head and kissed her. Let me tell you, time really does stand still, my friends.

As Monique was taping their reunion, Don and Paqui only had eyes for each other. Lost in continuous sweet, deep, toe-tingling, goosebump-bringing kisses. They were oblivious to the many people walking by and staring. (Darn, we really should have made this a reality TV show and made a fortune!!). Don and Paqui just held on for dear life and kissed each other as though their lives depended on it. And when Paqui posted it on facebook some time later, many a friend admitted to watching it in tears of emotion.

As Don and Paqui fell deeper and deeper in love, doubting nothing, some friends still had trepidations about their love. Yet anytime that these friends saw a photo of the two of them together, or the video of their reunion, or Don skyping her later on after the trip, and saw him looking at her with such love in his eyes, each and every one of the friends could simply not deny the deep and true love between them.

After what felt like hours, Paqui realized that they were not alone. And that she hadn’t even greeted Monique. With her typical squeal of happiness, she turned to her new sister and gave her a hug. Not quite leaving Don’s side.

Her sweet Don. Dressed in a suit to meet her. And Monique had brought her a rose. In a daze, Don and Paqui walked to the car, so close to each other that they were almost welded at the hip. Holding hands. Arm in arm. With as much of their bodies touching as was legally allowed in public.

Once they were in the back seat of Monique’s car, it was like being teenagers again. Nonstop kissing. Whispers. Caresses. Looking into each other’s eyes. Touching each other’s faces. Not one single solitary awkward moment. Meant to be.
Paqui had known deep inside that it would be good. But the reality of being in his arms, exceeded all of her expectations. She felt breathless. Her heart was pounding. She wanted so desperately to be alone with him.

The next few hours were sweet and precious. And slowly building up to that climactic moment of being alone in their hotel room. Which was still hours away. So many hours until they could be alone.

Paqui had landed at 6 am and the hotel check in was not until 1 pm. So those hours went by agonizingly slow. First they went to Monique’s apartment and Don made her breakfast. Chocolate. Another way to her heart.

Then they went to a shopping center near by and just wandered the shops. Don got her a Caillebaut hot chocolate with slagroom (whipped cream) and they just stared into each other’s eyes. Holding hands. Talking about everything and nothing. Just taking it all in.

Until. Finally. It was time to go to the hotel. Paqui barely noticed how beautiful it was. All she could think about was being alone with Don. Fulfilling their love for each other. Becoming one.

It was like an epic movie scene. Paqui chose one of the lingerie outfits that she had bought specially for him. Lingerie should really be MUCH cheaper. It never stays on long!! Thankfully it was not ripped off. Just lovingly slid down until it pooled at her feet.

Paqui had never felt like this before. Not just desired. But cherished. Worshipped. Needed. As though she were the only woman in the world. His touch, so tender and loving. His lips caressing every part of her body. His body taking hers and making her well and truly his.

Some things do need to stay private. This is one of those times. All that I can say is that their caresses really did bring goosebumps
and their kisses really did touch their very souls and the love making that followed really did turn two hearts and bodies into one.

And that was just the first time… And as we all know, practice does make things better… And boy, did they practice over that next week; morning, noon and night. More lovemaking in a week than some people get in a year.

Sigh. Color Paqui and Don very “appy.” Their smile that next morning at breakfast spoke volumes. A honeymoon couple would not have looked happier.

And I haven’t even mentioned the in person proposal or Valentine’s dinner!! But as they say… That’s for another day.
