A little treat for you tonight… Another character sketch coming tomorrow.
“You don’t have to say anything. I just wanted to have a nice dinner with my husband.”
He took the drink and his love was evident in the way he looked at her.
“It’s because of you,” he said simply.
She took a drink and put the glass down before she looked at him.
He took a drink and put his glass down, too.
“Everything I am is because of you. Every morning I wake up and look at my day with happiness because I know I get to begin and end it with you. Stephanie, everything I ever wanted in life has come true because you found it fit to love me. You took every idea I had about what my life was worth and you blew it out of the water. You love me despite my incessant need to be right and my overprotective nature. You tolerate my chauvinistic attitude when it comes to our daughters and you keep me in line when I lose the ability to be objective.”
He ran his fingers up and down her arms and his eyelids lowered.
“When you touch my body, I feel like I could devour you,” he moved to kiss her shoulder. “When you arch your back under me, I feel like I could truly lose myself within you. When you allow me to love you, I feel like the man I always hoped to be.”
