PreviouslyBrian nodded. "There is one more personal thank you Scott and I would like to make. A few weeks ago I came up with the idea of surprising Scott with a commitment ceremony. As it turns out, Scott had the same idea. Both of us turned to my Mom Jackie, for her assistance. And despite having to try to keep everything a secret and deal with two different sets of instructions, she pulled it off. She blended what I wanted with what Scott wanted, right down to our beautiful rings. You are amazing Mom and we love you," Brian said emotionally. I glanced around until I found Jackie. She was obviously moved by Brian's words as well. "I think that's it. Now, for those who want to dance until dawn...keep on going. But I think now is the perfect time for my husband...doesn't that sound nice...and I, to move our fun upstairs!" Brian finished and people laughed as he dumped the mic and pulled me towards the stairs.
Hand in hand we walked upstairs to our bedroom, entering the room together, for the first time as a married couple.
Despite my anxiety to get Brian alone all day, we weren't in a huge hurry to rush upstairs and hop into bed. We'd slept together many times, but this time we both wanted to savor it, simply take our time.
When we walked into the bedroom we found another surprise. Someone had placed small candles in holders around the room. With the lights off the flames flickered around the room, giving it a truly romantic setting. I noticed the box of bottles of lube sitting on the bedside table. I smiled to myself and turned to my husband.
I reached out to caress his face then pulled the end of his bowtie to undo it. Brian reached up and copied my movement, undoing my tie. I moved down and unbuttoned his jacket then started on his shirt.
"So what did you get from Kevin and Harold," I asked softly, not wanting to make too much noise and break the mood.
Brian grinned. "Ah, they got you too huh?" he asked quietly. I laughed and nodded. Brian started to undo my jacket and shirt. "I got a picture of Kevin, Harold and I from when we were all just little kids, I guess that was the old thing. A box full of massage oils, some scented and some edible." I grinned at that remembering my own gift. Brian continued. "A fur-like mitt that I was told feels incredible on bare skin. And instructions that Drew wants it back in a few weeks, so if we like we have to get our own."
I laughed aloud. Sounded just like my dear friend. "What was the blue thing?" I asked.
Brian blushed. "A blue d...." His voice trailed off and I couldn't hear him.
"A blue what?"
"A blue *dildo*," he whispered.
I laughed again and pulled Brian into a hug. "I don't think we'll be needing that since neither of us ever seems to have a problem," I commented. Brian laughed at that.
We resumed undressing each other, reaching for the cummerbunds then the pants. "And what did you get?" Brian asked.
"I got a picture of Drew and I from our university days. We were going to a Halloween party, in drag."
Brian stopped moving at that comment. "Drag? This I can't wait to see!" he exclaimed.
I grabbed him before he could move away. "Hey! Hey! You can see me in drag some other time. You're interrupting our wedding night!" Brian giggled and we continued. "I got a box full of different lubes. We can try some out tonight. I apparently 'borrowed' some padded handcuffs from Drew, and gained a blue blind fold for our enjoyment."
Brian pushed my pants and underwear to my ankles then knelt down to pull off my shoes and socks before removing the lowered pants. He stood and looked at me. "You think they are trying to tell us something?" he asked referring to the gifts.
I leaned forward to kiss his nose before copying his movements and ridding him of the rest of his clothes. "I think they don't want our sex life to get boring. What they don't know, is that I could never get bored with you," I said seriously as I stood.
Brian stepped forward and pulled my head down so our lips could meet. I lifted him in my arms and he wrapped his legs around my waist. I walked us over to the bed and carefully laid him down. My fingers brushed the flushed skin of his cheek.
"I want you to make love to me," I whispered watching the lust surge in Brian's eyes.
He pulled me down on top of him then rolled us over so he was straddling me. "I think I can manage that," he said with a twinkle in his eyes. "As long as you reciprocate a little later," he added.
I grinned up at him. "Deal!"
Brian leaned down and started to kiss me gently yet with passion. I lost myself in the tenderness and love of the kiss, until I felt Brian probing my entrance. At some point he had grabbed a bottle of lube from the box on the side table. I raised my legs, refusing to relinquish his mouth. His fingers gently and carefully prepared me.
Our lovemaking was slow and tender filled with love and a deeper emotion that made both of us feel more connected than ever before. After Brian made love to me, we lay on the bed wrapped around each other as we calmed and regained our strength. When I made love to Brian later I cradled him carefully in my arms as though he was the most precious thing in the world. And to me he is.
We slept after that. Sleeping until late in the morning when we made love again before showering and dressing. I think we both felt the new connection. Whatever it was, neither of us wanted to be more than arm length away from the other, preferably we were touching. Once dressed we clasped hands and went downstairs.
The decorations for our wedding had been moved, as had all of the extra chairs and tables. The living room was back to itself, with the huge Christmas tree returned from the veranda to its place beside the fireplace. There were dozens of brightly wrapped gifts surrounding the base of the tree.
I'd honestly forgotten that it was Christmas. Brian and I turned to each other at the same time. "Merry Christmas!" we said together.
I leaned down for a kiss. "You are the best gift I could have ever imagine," Brian whispered. The look on his face made me melt.
"You read my mind," I told him softly.
We both smiled and continued walking into the kitchen where we could hear sounds of activity. Jackie, Carrie, Liz and my mom were working in the kitchen creating a huge platter of Eggs Benedict. Harold Jr. and Denis were setting the table with Andre watching, while my Dad, Charlie and Harold Sr. were out on the veranda.
"Merry Christmas," Brian and I said, again in unison.
Everyone turned to us and a chorus of 'Merry Christmas' and 'good morning' resounded through the room. Brian and I smiled at everybody.
"I see almost everyone is here," Brian commented. Almost? I looked around and realized he was right. Sheri wasn't here.
"Where's Sheri?" I asked aloud.
My Mom turned to us to answer. "She decided to spend Christmas day with her boyfriend and his family," she said pointedly.
I blushed. "I see she told you huh?"
Mom nodded. "Yes. At least it didn't take me nearly a year before I met Brian," she stated. She was obviously a little upset that Kevin and Sheri had been dating since the previous New Years and they hadn't told her.
I walked over and gave her a hug. "She didn't mean to keep it from you for so long, but my problems created additional complications for them. Don't be upset."
Mom hugged me back and smiled. "I'm not really upset. I know this year has been crazy for all of us. But I like Kevin so I'm happy for both of them," Mom said.
I kissed her cheek. "Good." Turning, I found Brian right beside me.
I put my arm around his shoulders. "Breakfast is ready!" Carrie announced. Denis went to the door and called in the three other men for the meal.
It was a boisterous and fun meal. Brian and I were ribbed about the gifts we'd gotten from our best men, and about how quiet we were the night before. By the end of the meal I was sure I was beat red and I know Brian was too.
Everyone helped clear the table and then the entire family continued into the living room for presents. Most of the larger gifts were toys and clothes for Andre, the only child in the family.
Brian and I had picked up small but meaningful gifts for everyone during the tour and each one was genuinely appreciated. Brian and I gained new sweaters and shirts from our gifts.
Harold Sr. and Dad stood up at the same time and walked over to Brian and I. They handed Brian and I each an envelope. We looked up in surprise.
"What's this?" Brian asked in confusion.
Harold smiled. "Consider it a combination wedding and Christmas gift," he said. My Dad just smiled at me.
I glanced at Brian and we opened the envelopes simultaneously. Inside was a card printed from a home computer. I looked over and Brian had the same thing. I opened my card. Inside was printed "Wedding expenses (rings included): PAID IN FULL love from your family. Congratulations!"
I was stunned. I know the rings alone were not cheap, let alone the catered food and the table and chair rentals. A look at Brian showed he was surprised too. "Um, wow! I can't believe this!"
"I don't know what Scott and I did to deserve such an amazing family, but we're not about to complain! Thank you, all of you, so much!" Brian said eloquently.
I grinned and looked around the room, then nodded in Brian's direction. "What he said!"
Everyone laughed and I turned to tuck my head against Brian's neck as I blushed.
After the presents were opened, people wandered off to different places. Our moms and my sister-in-law went back to the kitchen to check on the food for Christmas dinner. Dinner was planned early, around two pm, so Brian and I could get out to the cabin before dark. Liz and Denis sat down on the floor and helped Andre open a few of his new toys.
Since we had a few hours until dinner, Brian and I sat in the library with Harold Jr. and Sr., Charlie and my dad. We showed them the floor plan for our new condo and talked about all the things we wanted to do. They were impressed with the entire deal from the price we paid to the size and the layout.
After talking for over an hour, Brian and I decided we should spend some time with the ladies so we joined them in the kitchen. We were immediately put to work setting the large dining room table for the meal. Kevin, Sheri, Drew, and AJ were also joining us for dinner so there would be sixteen of us.
The smell of roasting turkey and ham, stuffing and all the other great Christmas dinner smells permeated the kitchen and the rest of the house, drawing everyone eventually into the kitchen. It was nice to see Kevin and Sheri acting as a couple around the rest of the family. They both looked extremely happy.
Dinner was, not surprisingly, absolutely delicious. And with our close family members and friends there to share it, it was a meal I would remember.
Afterwards, Brian and I went back upstairs to our bedroom to pack a few things to take to the cabin. We packed clothes and I secretly put in the padded cuffs along with some lube and the blue blindfold. If the opportunity presented itself, I thought we could have a little fun.
We grabbed the bags and made our way back downstairs. The family was waiting in the front foyer for us.
"We brought your ride around front for you," Kevin said.
Thanks Kev," Brian said.
We walked through the front door and stopped. There at the foot of the stairs was a small, enclosed carriage with a horse attached. I looked at Brian and together we looked back at the family. They were spread out along the railing of the veranda, smiling at us.
"What?" Kevin asked innocently. "You guys didn't get the car with tin cans and a 'just married' sign, so we thought this would work instead. The ATV is already at the cabin for when you come back."
Brian walked over to his cousin and hugged him. "Thanks Cus." He looked at the others. "Thanks, all of you. This is wonderful." He walked back over to me. "This okay?" he asked softly.
I smiled and nodded. "Yeah. I've never been in a horse drawn carriage before. It should be fun!"
We took a couple of minutes to walk around the horse and carriage, grinning at the just married sign attached to the back. I turned back to the people standing on the veranda. "I guess we'll see you all later. We should be back here on the 28th then back in Orlando on the 29th. We do have Brian's cell phone for emergencies. Thank you for everything!"
I turned around and stepped up into the back part of the carriage. Brian climbed in behind me. We set our bags on the rear-facing seat, and sat together on the front facing seat, pulling the blanket someone had left, over our laps. Kevin closed the door and climbed into the driver's seat. A few seconds later the carriage started to move.
I leaned closer to Brian, resting my head against his. "This is romantic," I whispered.
Brian reached under the blanket to grasp my hand, entwining our fingers. "Wonder what Kevin would say if we started to make love back here?" he said softly.
I giggled. "I don't think I want to know, because I know it would get back to Sheri and probably my Mom too!"
We cuddled quietly and looked out the windows at the landscape as Kevin followed the ATV trail to the cabin. The trip took about half an hour, and I was glad when the carriage finally stopped. Being so close to Brian in the carriage made me hot. I wanted to make love to him, immediately. We stepped down and grabbed our bags.
"Thanks Kev! See you in a few days," Brian said as I started to drag him towards the cabin. Kevin laughed and turned the carriage around to return to the house.
I fumbled with the lock but finally manage to open the door. We tumbled inside, falling over each other. My hands were running over Brian's body seeking out bare flesh. When I couldn't find enough, I reached down and pulled his shirt up over his head. I spun him around and pressed the length of my body against his back, bending down to nibble on his ear.
"I want you," I said huskily.
Brian laughed softly and reached behind his head to pull me closer. "I'm all yours," he murmured.
I walked him towards the bed, moving my hands down to unbuckle his belt and undo his pants. I stopped us at the foot of the bed and pushed his pants to his ankles. I turned him to face me and pushed him backward onto the mattress. Even though I was still fully clothed I crawled on top of him, pushing him into the mattress. I nibbled along his jaw and back to his ear. I moved one of my hands down to Brian's groin and rubbed across the head of his erection. "I want to fuck you into oblivion," I whispered. "Do you want that?" I asked, squeezing the head of his penis. Brian groaned loudly and bucked up into my hand. "Do you?" I asked again.
Brian opened his eyes and stared at me with lust and need. "Yes!" he gasped out. I smiled and leaned down to kiss his red lips before rolling off the bed. I quickly stripped, never taking my eyes from Brian. He was wiggling on the bed and breathing hard, but resisted the desire to stroke himself. I ran over to our bags and dug around for the bottles of lube. I grabbed one, not caring what type, then grabbed a small plastic bag from my luggage before I rushed back to the bed. I pulled the remainder of Brian's clothes from him then paused to stare down at him. He looked so beautiful, spread naked on the bed, skin flushed with arousal.
He looked up at me and licked his lips. "Now Scott! I need you now!" he whispered. That pressed me into action. I knelt between his legs and Brian's raised his feet to rest them on my shoulders, leaving him completely open to me. Gorgeous! I poured some of the slick lube onto my hand and rubbed my hands together. With one hand I began to probe for his opening, while my other hand grasped his pulsing erection. One finger slid easily into him. I moved my hand from his penis to his buttocks, holding him open for me.
Brian gasped at the new feeling and reached down to stroke himself. I looked at him, then at the plastic bag beside me. I leaned up over him between his legs. "No touching yourself!" I instructed him. "And if you can't obey, I'm going to cuff your hands," I told him.
Brian looked at me in surprise, but I felt his cock surge in excitement, and his breathing increased. "Maybe," he paused to lick his lips. "Maybe you should cuff me, just in case?" he suggested.
I grinned at him and reached for the cuffs. They were soft leather on the outside, fur on the inside with velcro closures, so they were easy to open. I held them so Brian could see them. "You sure?" I asked seriously. I hadn't planned for things to go this way, but I was more than willing to experiment a little if Brian was willing too.
Brian grinned and nodded. I reached above his head and threaded the chain between the cuffs through the boards on the headboard. Grasping one of his hands I gently enclosed it in the cuff making sure it wasn't too tight. I moved the other hand up and repeated the move, pausing to kiss his palm as I did.
I moved slowly back down his body, stopping at his ear. "Just say 'stop' if it gets to be too much," I whispered. Brian nodded.
I moved back to a kneeling position between his legs and looked up his body. His chest was taut because of the position of his cuffed wrists. He looked absolutely edible. I poured more lube onto my hands and resumed my ministrations, gently opening him up while stroking and teasing his erection. I couldn't tear my eyes aware from Brian's face watching him twist and turn his head, gasping with pleasure. A fine sheen of sweat appeared on his face. His hips began to thrust up trying to get me to hurry.
When I thought he was getting close to cumming I released his erection and he cried out at the loss of sensation. "Soon, my Love, soon," I murmured, petting his flat stomach. I concentrated on making sure he was as loose as possible. Finally I removed my fingers and slicked up my own engorged erection. I leaned forward, resting my shoulders against the back of his thighs. "Brian! Look at me Brian!" I commanded. Brian forced his eyes open and met my gaze. When he did I thrust myself into him, in one long slow thrust. His eyes widened in surprise and his chest arched up off the bed.
"Oh God!" he gasped.
I paused for a few seconds to make sure he was okay before I started to move. I used long, slow strokes, dragging across Brian's prostate every time I thrust. Soon his body was shuddering, his hips were thrusting back to meet me and he was softly keening with the overwhelming pleasure.
I was doing exactly what I wanted, pleasuring him completely. I planted my hands on either side of his chest and started to thrust harder, and faster. Brian started to pant.
"Oh! Oh ! Oh!" he gasped. He was tugging at the wrist restraints. I knew he wanted me to touch his leaking erection. But I wasn't going to. I knew if he came just from my being in him, it would be incredible for him.
As I increased my pace again, I leaned down and kissed him, our tongues tangling. Brian thrust his tongue rapidly in and out of my mouth as his arousal increased and he couldn't do anything about it. My arousal was growing too and I knew I was close to exploding.
When I knew I was about to come, I finally reached down and stroked along the bottom of Brian's penis. I thrust one last time and exploded at the same time Brian screamed and started to cum.
I held Brian close as both of our bodies shuddered and quaked through our orgasms. When I finally stopped, I reached up to open the velcro, releasing Brian's hands before I collapsed on top of him.
We lay there, both breathing heavily waiting for our pulses to calm and our bodies to stop twitching. Eventually I rolled off of Brian, careful not to hurt him as I pulled out. He moaned at the loss anyway.
Brian was still on his back, and I was on my side. I gently stroked my fingers down his chest making him shudder again.
"My whole body feels like one giant nerve," he murmured. I bent forward to kiss one of his nipples and he arched into my mouth. "Oh God Scott!" He brought one of his hands down to stroke through my hair. "You are a sex demon! I don't think my body will ever feel the same again," he bemoaned.
I laughed gently and lay down, resting my head on his shoulder. "So it was good huh?"
Brian laughed. "Incredible, just like you."
We were quiet for a few minutes before both of us noticed something different about the cabin. There was a quiet hum coming from somewhere. I raised my head to look at Brian, but he just shrugged. I rolled over to look around and noticed the differences in the cabin. Someone had tidied up, and changed some of the old furniture adding new pieces designed to look rustic. I glanced towards the little kitchen area and saw even more changes. A pipe had been added along the wall, obviously coming from the bathroom. It must be for water. The kitchen was where the sound was coming from.
Once I'd recovered enough I rolled off the bed to investigate. In the far corner, under the counter along the outer wall of the cabin was a small refrigerator. I opened it to discover it was full of food, and working.
"Where is the power coming from?" Brian asked from beside me. I glanced up at him and shrugged.
We walked over to the bed and pulled some clothes on before walking outside. Once there we noticed the electrical cord we hadn't noticed when we arrived. We followed it around the hill a short way until we reached a small wooden shed.
"That shed wasn't here before!" Brian commented.
Inside the shed we found a small gas powered generator with a number of extra gas cans. We simply looked at each other and shook our heads. We had been prepared to rough it, but our families obviously had other ideas.
We walked hand in hand back to the cabin. It was starting to get cool inside now that we were calmer and dressed. Brian started up a fire, while I rummaged through the box of food on the counter and in the fridge.
Soon the little cabin was cozy warm. I decided that since we were alone, there was no need for clothes. I pulled a blanket from the pile at the foot of the bed and spread it on the floor by the fire, then stripped off my clothes. Brian watched me and grinned before following suit.
"How about a quick shower, then we can sit out here to dry off and have some wine?" he suggested. I nodded and took his offered hand, following him into the natural bathroom.
The water was refreshing, exactly the same temperature as it always was. We just used our hands on each other running the water over skin to wipe away sweat and the remnants of our earlier lovemaking.
Once we were sufficiently clean, we stepped out of the small waterfall onto a mat. We grabbed a towel each and quickly towel-dried our hair before walking naked out to the wood fireplace and the blanket I'd spread in front of it.
Brian detoured to the new mini fridge and grabbed a tray of chocolate covered strawberries to nibble on while we drank the wine. We stretched out on the blanket leaning against pillows propped up to the foot of the bed, the wine and food beside us.
We sat there for about an hour, listening to the fire crackle, talking in hushed tones about one thing or another that we wanted to do with the condo.
We finished the bottle of wine and Brian stood, turning to offer me his hand. He pulled me against his chest into a tight hug, then we walked around to the side of the bed. Brian reached up to stroke my cheek.
"My turn," he said softly with a grin.
Brian directed me to lay back then he knelt on the bed beside me, raising my arms above my head so he could fasten the cuffs. I knew neither of us would ever get into 'the scene' the way Drew and apparently AJ had. But a few harmless toys like the cuffs and blindfold I found could be very erotic.
Once I was cuffed, Brian walked back to our bags and pulled some things out. I couldn't see what. When he returned to the side of the bed he was holding the blue silk scarf in his hands.
"Can we try this?" he asked softly.
I smiled up at him. "You can try anything you want. I trust you Love," I replied honestly.
Brian grinned happily, making me smile even more. He fastened the blindfold loosely. If I turned my head and rubbed against my arm it would come loose. I listened as he moved around for a minute, trying to guess what he was doing. I jumped and gasped loudly when he simply put his hand on my chest. I was expecting something else.
"You okay?" he whispered.
I nodded. "Yeah."
He slowly massaged my chest with his hand, calming me. After a few minutes, he paused, before I felt a new sensation on my skin. He started with one foot and slowly worked his way up one leg, then the other. I quickly identified the fake-fur mitt that Drew had loaned us. The feeling was indescribable. Brian quickly figured out how much pressure to use so that it didn't tickle, yet still felt incredible. It didn't take long before I was shivering under his hands. After stroking over my legs, he skipped my leaking erection to stroke my arms. When he finally brought the fur over my chest I was twisting and moaning. I was sure I was going to cum just from the sensation alone.
"Don't stop Love," I pleaded. "Oh, it feels...ah its incredible...I'm..." He stroked the fur over my cock and I screamed and bucked up into his hand.
Then the fur was taken away. Brian used his other hand to grasp my penis, squeezing enough to prevent my orgasm. I cried out in disappointment.
"Shh, Angel," he whispered, leaning down to softly kiss my parted lips. "There's more to come."
I felt the bed shift as Brian moved. The blood was rushing through my veins so I found it hard to concentrate on listening to what he was doing.
He moved back to kiss me again. "Can you raise your knees?" he asked.
I nodded and lifted my legs, planting my feet flat on the bed. Again Brian moved, this time to a position between my legs. A few seconds later I could feel his gently probing at my entrance with a lube slicked finger. I spread my legs wider allowing him more access. His finger slid in and I clenched around it. I felt his hand gently rub my stomach.
"Relax Angel, you'll like this, I promise," he murmured. I followed his instructions and relaxed my body. Brian moved his hand and returned with two fingers. When he hit my prostate I jumped and moaned. I could feel my erection throbbing between my thighs. I was still very close to the edge.
Three fingers stretched me but there was no pain. Brian was going slowly and using plenty of lube. I groaned in disappointment when he pulled out. There were a few seconds of nothing, then suddenly I was overloaded with sensations. The fur mitt returned to cup my balls at the same time Brian took the tip of my penis into his mouth. I felt something solid slowly pushing into me, and realized Brian was using the dildo. The combination of three different feelings drove me wild. I couldn't distinguish where one feeling ended and the other began. My body was one giant nerve ending. I thrashed against the cuffs, arching up into Brian's mouth at the same time trying to push down on the dildo so it would hit my prostate. It didn't take long for me to explode. My body shuddered as I pumped into Brian's mouth. I finally collapsed back on the bed, exhausted.
Brian waited until I relaxed then slowly removed the dildo. He moved up the bed and pushed the blindfold off my eyes. He grinned down at me. "Okay?" he asked softly.
I returned the smile. "Better than okay," I replied. He reached up and undid the cuffs, before lying down beside me. My body was a bowl of mush, but I managed to turn my head to look at him. "What about you?" I asked softly. Brian blushed, quickly and deeply. I looked down his body to find his penis was limp. I returned my gaze to his face.
He shrugged. "Watching you, and pleasuring you, turned me on, more than I thought," he admitted. I realized he had cum while he was bringing me to my explosive orgasm. I reached over with my arm and pulled him against my side.
"Thank you! I love you Brian," I said softly.
He snuggled against me. "I love you Scott," he murmured.
We dozed for a while before reluctantly getting up, washing again and changing the bedding. Brian added some more wood to the fire so it would go most of the night. It was only eleven, but both of us were exhausted so we crawled into the bed under the heavy, warm quilts and snuggled together as we drifted to sleep.
The next two days sped by. We spent our time talking and sleeping, eating and walking, and of course, making love. We talked about the upcoming interview, our plans for New Years, our new home and our long term hopes and dreams. We walked around the farm following trails formed by horses and ATVs. The weather was cold, but clear. Our lovemaking was as wonderful as always. I was sure it kept getting better as we learned more and more about each other's responses.
It was wonderful to be totally cut off from the rest of the world with only Brian as company. It allowed us to focus completely on one another and we became closer than ever before.
The morning of the 28th dawned sunny and cold. I woke up as Brian made a run for the bathroom. The fire had gone out in the early morning so the cabin was cold. There wasn't much point in lighting a new fire since we would be leaving in a little while.
As I started to think about leaving, I thought about the interview we were going to be doing in a few hours. It made me nervous.
"What are you thinking about?" Brian asked softly from beside the bed. I hadn't heard him return from the bathroom.
I looked up at my incredible husband. I loved thinking about him like that. I smile ruefully. "The interview," I replied.
He sat down on the bed and picked up my hand. "Regrets?" he asked.
I shook my head. "No! You know that Bri. Just nerves," I told him honestly.
He leaned forward to kiss me. "It will be okay, Angel. I promise." He stood and offered me his hand. "Let's go shower and get dressed before we freeze!" he said with a grin.
I smiled and followed him into the bathroom.
We stood in the doorway and took one last look around the cabin. So much had happened every time we'd been there that it held a special place in our hearts.
"We'll be back soon," Brian said softly. I wasn't sure if he was talking to the cabin or me. We walked outside and Brian closed the door, putting the padlock in place. The ATV and trailer were loaded with everything we could fit. The small fridge would have to be picked up by Harold later.
We both put our helmets on and mounted the ATV. I wrapped my arms around Brian's waist.
"I'll never forget these last few days," I said softly to Brian.
He patted my hand. "Me neither."
He started the engine and soon we were heading back to the house and reality.
