Lance watched Katie sleep. Resting on his elbow he took in every contour of her profile until he realized that he preferred her dreaming with her eyes opened instead of closed.
Slowly pulling the sheet from her body, he let his free index finger trace the line from her rib cage to the curve of her hip, stopping only when her sleepy smile let him know she’d felt every touch.
Katie’s blue eyes met his, “Morning handsome.”
“Welcome to our weekend… “Lance said, pulling her close and kissing her mouth awake. “…Where I get to rouse you like this for three whole days.”
Katie laughed, “ Well we’ll need to eat and shower eventually.”
“Later…” Lance answered, pulling her on top of him.
Katie stepped out of the shower three hours later and wrapped a towel around her middle. Dragging a comb through her hair, she opened the bathroom door and saw Lance, sitting on the bed lost in thought.
“So what are our plans?” she asked.
“Plans?” he answered, obviously confused.
“What are we doing today in this gorgeous little seaside town off the Coast of …” she stopped and looked thoughtful. “…where exactly are we?”
Lance smiled and realized that he hadn’t mentioned where he was taking her. He’d just picked her up and driven to this little house on the beach as fast as he could, in fact he’d only just brought their luggage in while Kate rinsed off the morning.
“Does it matter?”
Kate turned to him, grinning. “Nope, not at all.” she opened her bag and began sorting through panties and camisoles, “but it would help to know what you plan to do with me today so I can pick an outfit.”
Lance got up and took her face in his hands, “I plan to do whatever it takes to make you want to stay here with me. I’ve only got three days to convince you that my world is going to end if we have to say goodbye again.”
