The kitchen and dining room were combined and as she had asked for. Two large ovens on the wall could be used without having to bend down. He then pushed another button and all the lights dimmed and then the curtains were drawn automatically. He poured her a glass of her favourite wine that had been chilled.
“This is fantastic; I cannot believe that you’ve created this.’
He sat beside her on the sofa and turned on some soft music automatically from the remote control.
“When are you moving in?’
“As soon as you agree to marry me Annabella.’
“You want to marry me.’
“Yes; what do you say?’ He pushed another button on the remote and the arm of the chair opened up and a box came up.
“Open it he said as he handed the box to her.’
She looked inside to see a four carat diamond ring.’
“You said that you wanted someone that knows what he wants and how to get it.’
“Well I want you and I won’t give up until you are mine.’
He pulled her to him and kissed her on the lips then took her by the hand and led her to his bedroom they were locked together in embrace as he kissed her neck she responded to his touch and for the first time in years let herself go completely.
He unzipped the dress she was wearing and it fell to the floor she unbuttoned his shirt and undid his tie. She stood before him and he gazed down at her then he lifted her off her feet and placed her gently down upon the bed. Their bodies touched and it was electric as the sensations that they’d suppressed for so long surged though them. They made love with wild abandonment.
When it was over they lay in each others arms neither wanting to let go of the other.
It was Russell who got up and then pressed a button on the remote by his bed and the door to the bathroom opened and the lights went on and the water began to run in the shower automatically.
He got himself a large bath towel then stepped inside the twelve by eight shower cubicle. He began to wash himself when the door opened and Annabella joined him. They slowly caressed each other until they both could take not more and they filled the need they both had. She moaned with contentment as he cupped her breasts and kissed them, and then he lifted her so she could straddle him and the two of them kissed and whilst she moved rhythmically. Her body shuddered as she reached climax. He held her until it had subsided he wasn’t far behind her as he took her from behind and he let out his climactic gasp.’
He looked at her for a long time as they stood under the warmth of the water.
Finally she told him how much she loved him and now he felt complete.
That emptiness and that heartache that he’d carried around for almost two years had dissipated.’
Russell went out and got another towel and handed one to Annabella.
They dried and then redressed, Annabella dried her hair and put it up into a French Plait. He placed the ring he had bought on her finger before leaving to take Annabella home. No words were needed to be said on the way back they both knew how they felt about each other but Russell kept looking over at the most beautiful woman that he’d ever seen in the world and thinking how lucky he was.
When they reached Annabella’s parents house they walked hand in hand up the pathway. Sylvia Belsham looked from her window as the couple stole a kiss before going inside.
