Your choice for W was a tie! By random choice, you get Wilmington, DE!
She debated back and forth. Washington, D.C. would be a fun place to go. She hadn’t ever been, and she knew there would be lots of great history there. On the other hand, it was a huge tourist trap, and that was dangerous for her. A town in the smallest state in the area was a good place to go if she wanted to stay hidden. So even though she possibly would prefer Washington, D.C., she chose Wilmington, DE. She checked the box and slipped it back across the table to him.
Later, she asked him, “What is there to do in Wilmington?”
“I’ll think of something,” he told her. “Don’t you worry about a thing. I’ve got it.”
“Okay,” she said. She was unsure, but she knew that she trusted Sevy, so she was just going to let it go and give him control. Sometimes it was nice to give up control, anyway. It was just an odd thing for her to do it with vacation plans rather than in the bedroom.
It wasn’t long before he had their plans set and they had their few days off. Aralyn packed a bag with a variety of types of clothes, not knowing what they were going to be doing there. She was nervous not being able to plan ahead for various situations, but she pushed the feelings aside and made sure she was packed and ready when he arrived to pick her up.
“Are you ready to go?” he asked.
“Yes,” she said smiling. “I’m sorry I have so much stuff. I didn’t know what we were doing so I brought a little of everything.” She could feel her cheeks growing warm with a mild blush. Aralyn hadn’t expected herself to get embarrassed by the fact that she looked like she was moving, but she wasn’t usually quite so materialistic.
“No worries,” he said, and he smiled even as he heaved her bags into the trunk of the car. “If I had wanted you to pack light, I could’ve told you.” He winked at her, and she grinned.
“Thanks, Sevy,” she said, and she stood up on tiptoe to kiss him on the cheek.
“No problem, babe,” he said with a grin, and he wrapped his arms around her and gave her a proper kiss. She practically melted right there on the sidewalk.
“Wow,” she said when he broke their kiss and pulled back.
He was grinning at her. “Ready to go?”
“Uh huh,” she said vaguely and got in the car when he opened the door for her. She was still in a daze a few minutes later when he pulled onto the highway.
“You okay, Aralyn?” he asked in a teasing tone.
“Yes,” she said, shaking her head and snapping out of her stupor. “I just… I don’t know what. Kissing you is like an aphrodisiac.” He laughed a hearty laugh, and she blushed much darker than she had earlier.
When he saw the look on her face, he hastened to add, “I’m sorry to laugh. I probably shouldn’t. You’re just so cute. It’s not a bad thing.”
His words came out in a rush, and she felt relief that he wasn’t making fun of her.
“Okay,” she said. “I see what you mean.” She smiled despite her embarrassment and then felt his hand reaching across the center console to grip her hand. They held hands the rest of the car ride.
“You’re so amazing,” he said a while later after they had talked about their childhoods and their dreams and everything in between.
“As are you,” she returned the compliment.
“And you’re sexy as hell,” he grinned at her, and she grinned back.
She wondered where he was going with that comment. “So I have a proposition.”
“Okay,” she said, hesitantly. What in the world could Sevy be considering now?
“I researched what there was to do in Wilmington.”
“Okay,” she said again, prompting him to continue, “and what is there to do?”
“Well, there’s an X-Rated movie theater there.”
She raised her eyebrows. “I’ve never known there to be one around here.”
“You’d be surprised what you can find when you set your mind to it. But, there’s one in Wilmington nonetheless.”
“Hm,” she said, noncommittal.
“Would you like to go?” he asked.
Does Aralyn want to go to the X-rated Movie Theater?
Yes OR No
