The Wedding Gift

It was as if they’d been parted for weeks with the way the pair came together the instant they entered that tropical suite. Kaidren swept her up into his arm and grinned like a wolf as he whispered,” There is no escaping me now. Any second thoughts?”

Allison laughed softly as she shook her head,” None whatsoever. I fear you are quite stuck with me, Husband.”

“ Husband. I like the sound of that. One day I would like to bear the title, Father, something I intend to work most heartedly on right now.”

Allison blushed even as she smiled. “ Is that so? Then see us to bed, my lord and we shall see where the night leads.”

“ With pleasure, Wife.”

She reveled in his touch. Each caress, every kiss - it was like the first time all over again. He took her to new heights over and over again until they fell into the bed, breathless, hungry and euphoric. After food had been ordered and delivered, she sat beside her new husband and enjoyed the light meal and laughter that they shared. It was during a quiet moment that she took the opportunity to present him with her gift.

“ What is this?” he questioned with a raised brow.

“ My wedding gift to you, my love. Go on,” she urged him with a smile,” Open it.”

He chuckled and shook his head ruefully as he opened the silver box only to stare at the contents inside with a hint of confusion at first. When it dawned on him what it was, his gaze snapped to her own once more.

“ Is this what I think it is?”

She nodded,” For a month now.” She reached up to tenderly caress his cheek,” Congratulations, my love, you are to be a father.”
