Secrets never stay in dark where they belong….
Charlie wanted to succeed in her career at all costs, that she sacrificed her love for it. Like a thief in the night she sneaks out of Reece’s house leaving with his heart, only to appear six years later with a gift.
He could hear her moan as she rode him hard and deep. Reece smoothed his hands along her side up until he got to her breasts. Cupping her fleshy globes he kneaded into them until he heard her cry in delight. His hands moved behind her and pulled her down for a hard kiss. He wanted this to last forever, but he needed it to be over so that he could ask her. He held onto her as he lifted his ass of the bed, supporting himself on his heels. His hands moved under her knees and he held her in place.
He looked into her eyes and could see her desire burn deep for him. He wanted her to milk him for everything he had. He pulled his sex out of hers and watched as her nose scrunched in annoyance. Reece chuckled before plunging into her. His lips curled into a sly smile, and her eyes widened with shock as Lee took in the length of him with just that one stroke. He felt her tremble on top of him as he rocked harder and faster inside her, seeking her own release more than he did his. And when she threw her head back and screamed out his name, he let himself go over the edge with her.
She collapsed beside him, her chest heaved as she tried to steady her breathing. “Where are you going?” She reached for him as he rolled off the bed.
“Give me a second, Lee,” he said as he fished the velvet box from his jacket pocket.
He was going to take a dive into the deep end. He hoped she would be there to catch him.
“What is that?”
He felt her hover over him and noticed she was looking over his shoulder. He cleared his throat and turned towards her, getting down on one knee. He knew he looked ridiculous, naked and on the cold floor on bended knee. But he still hoped she would have him, just as bare as he was, flaws and all.
“When I look into your eyes, I swear I can feel my soul shiver. My heart aches to be with you every single second of the day. I love you; I want to see you round with my baby in your belly. I want us to have a home, a dog, and maybe even a white picket fence.” He saw the smile of her face and his nervousness slipped away. “I want to spend every moment of happily ever after with you. I don’t want to be happy with anyone else but you. I love you and I would be honored if you would be my wife.”
“I would be honored if you would be my husband,” she said as tears rolled down her cheeks.
“I take that as a yes.”
“Take it as an absolutely,” she said as she threw her hands around his neck, holding him close to her.
“I want you to wear this. It’s not much but-” he started as he slipped the modest ring on.
“It’s everything. I will never take it off,” she swore.
Reece pushed her onto the bed as his lips caressed the soft skin on her neck. He wanted to spend every waking moment devouring her like this, giving her pleasure that she knew only he could give her.
Six years later…
Reece woke up with a start. He always had the same dream. He proposed to Lee and she said yes. But then she was never there when he woke up. He had looked for her, searched everywhere he thought she would be, but nothing. After a year, he had to resign himself to the fact that she didn’t want him to find her. He pulled his bedside drawer open and stared at the blue velvet box; she hadn’t left the ring behind. Maybe she would keep her promise and never take it off.
