*The Next Morning*
I wake up and, unlike every other morning, sit up. After a few stretches I take a look outside my window. There's a tree right outside it and it's just in bloom. The flowers are so pretty.
"Rosa," comes a voice I'm starting to hate.
I turn to look at Zack. "What the hell do you want?"
"Is that really how you're going to talk to me?"
He walks over to me and sits on the edge of the bed. "You really shouldn't, sweetheart." Then he leans over and starts kissing me.
I push him away just hard enough that he falls off the bed. "Do not kiss me!"
"I will kiss you if I want!" he stands up and brushes dust off his pants.
"I don't think so. Mason!"
"Ha, you think your little servant boy can help you?" he comes and gets way too close to my face.
"Yes ma'am," Mason says as he enters the room. "Sir, get away from her."
"I will do what I want," Zack turns and rushes at Mason.
I quickly slip out of bed and rush to my door, "Come on Mason." A good kick to Zack's stomach sends him onto the floor and Mason and I running.
"Where are we going?"
"I'd say the secret closet, but he was given a tour and shown that," I take a deep breath. "My house."
In one swift motion Mason picks me up bridal style, "Directions?"
"Out the side door for workers and don't stop," I wrap my arms around his neck.
"What's in the place?"
"Not much. I'm pretty sure it has some food. Dang it, should have grabbed my school work."
"I'll get it. I'll go back and get it."
"Thanks. How are you still running?"
"I'm just that fit."
*An Hour Later*
"This is so much fun," I giggle as I lean into Mason. "I want this to be our getaway place. We can decorate it with things at the house until I finish my schoolwork."
Mason smiles down at me, "I'd love to do that. But what happens when we move to Paris."
I giggle some more, "This can be our summer house. Our secret summer house."
He gives me a kiss, "What rooms will we design?"
"My study and the kitchen."
"What will be left?"
"Um, the living room, extra bedrooms, master bedroom, and the bathrooms."
"How will we get stuff over here?"
"Will use our muscles and move it over here. When Zack is out with my father doing whatever they do."
"Have you ever been into town?"
"No, not recently."
"I'm taking you."
"You can ask your father to go into town. Can't you?"
"Yeah. I guess. He might let me."
"If he won't we'll have to sneak out."
I smile, "What's in town?"
"Bookstores, bakery's, clothing stores, toy shops, and much more."
He gives me another kiss, "I think I love you."
I smile, "I think I love you."
