He was out of sight for a few minutes and came back in with the clothes he shed last night. Laying his clothes on my vanity chair, he reached into his jacket and pulled out a small box.
Mother of Pearl. Am I breathing? Maybe that not what I think it is.
“Siddaleigh Mare Carrington, eight years ago you came into my life. It was so unexpected. I never imagined myself at that age thinking about marriage and settling down. Just a few months with you and getting to know you. I knew then what I still know now. This is right. You are the only woman I could ever give my everything to. You’re my best hope for the future. I am gonna be better than any fairy tale and better than any dream you’ll ever have had. You make me a better man. And want to be a better man. I’ll make your every dream come true. Mo chroí, mo ghrá, m’anam. My heart. My love. My soul. I’ll never stop loving you and taking care of you. Until my last breath on this earth until we meet again in Heaven. I’m yours. Grab a hold of me and don’t let me go.”
Wow. Now that was a proposal. Eight years late, and I can laugh at that now but this was so much more. Although I let him kneel there for a good hot minutes with the most serious face I could muster. Seeing that knowing smile of his mar his face as if he knew I was faking about thinking about it made me smile in return.
“Konner, being with you is every dream come true. You’ve been mine since the day I met you babe. So since you’re insisting. Yes, Konner Patrick O’Brian. I’ll marry you and make an honest man out of you.” I laughed out loud in bliss and happiness. “Was there ever a doubt in your mind?”
He slid the two carat miracle setting diamond ring over my finger and slipped his hands /to my hips and kneaded them. Before I knew it, he rushed his hands to the bedding, gripped and I was being dragged, quilt and all, down until my hips straddled his on the floor. His lean hips and muscular thighs clenched and rubbed my naked body in just the right way. I felt myself soften as he got harder,
“Ye’re so damn stubborn Siddaleigh. Our lives were entwined over pretty much the last decade. Time don’t change that. God must have wanted us to be together because look at us now my love. It was just a long time waiting.”
He massaged my body and since I was naked I grabbed a pillow to cover myself up. I might be getting turned on right now, but I knew we needed to discuss the fucked-up-ness that’s become my life as of late.
“Now that we established ownership of each other. Let’s talk about these threats.”
Tapping me lightly on my rear, he took me off him and I sat quietly beside him as he got up, still naked. Still hard. Seeing his member jut and bob made me flustered.
Dear Lord in Heaven that man was built like a brick wall and he is all mine.
I felt like dancing and hopping up in ecstasy.
“Dang it Konner! Who knew a naked male body would turn me on like wild fire? Put some dang clothes on already. I’m burning up over here.”
Konner stopped, turned and raised an eyebrow in speculation.
“You won’t get none of this fire right now mo ghrá, until I get fed and go over these with you. Also, if I remember correctly, I technically haven’t taken ye on a proper first date. So me,” he pointed to himself, then me, “you, are going to dinner. Dancing, because I wanna sway with ye on a nice wooden dance floor. So keep that in mind. Get all dolled up or whatever you wanna do, and I’m taking you out tonight. Since it’s still early, after talking this out with the girls, which won’t take long, I’m gonna go check on some clients for my uncle. I should be done by five. That gives you til six to be ready for me.”
