Miaka looked on. Rice, vegetables, meats….
Yui smiled, as she had taken the tram.
"Okay, you still sure you want cooking lessons?"
"Yeah, I don't want him to think he needs to always take me out, or bring home food."
"Well, I'm just glad you two are happy. When I saw you the next morning…you were making out! I still can't figure out what changed things between you both."
"I guess…I finally got to know him….we ended up talking a lot that night."
"Well, whatever happened, I'm glad to see you happy. You sure he wouldn't mind me coming over?"
" He said that you could visit me whenever you wanted to."
"Good. Oh, show off any of those lacy…."
"No..I hid them. Under the bed."
"Miaka, you need to …"
"Yui, I'm too embarrassed!"
"Miaka, you don't need be. You're married to man you love….hey whatever happened with Taka ?"
"Alexander invited him for a visit. I told him I needed chance to say good-bye."
"Is he coming?"
Alexander told me he was coming, but wasn't sure when. He would call us when he was in town."
Miaka smiled. The lunch she and Yui had made was pretty good.
"We're going on honeymoon, a full week at some fancy hotel. He told me he'd gotten some time off."
"So, what's he like?" she asked with a wicked smile.
"Come on! He's gotta be well built… is he? " she asked as she gave impish grin.
The front door opened as Miaka blushed.
"He's amazing. His body is…I just can't think of any words….yes he's well built, but he's also…..he's so gentle with me….."
"I just…..I just want to make him feel as cherished as I do…..I never knew he would be so….he makes me feel so …accepted…" Miaka said.
"I'm glad…..did you tell him you went shopping already? Just how did he react when he saw that red silk slip I convinced you to get?"
"I've…I haven't shown him anything!"
"Miaka!" Yui pouted.
"It'll just end up on the floor anyway…." she grumbled.
"Then that slip with that blue-violet ribbon?"
That was when the door closed and Miaka yelped as her husband casually walked in.
"You're home early…" Miaka said, as she wondered how much he had overheard.
"Speaking off, I gotta go…" Yui said, before Alexander could respond.
"You barely touched your lunch!" Miaka yelped.
"Miaka, I'm not gonna stand in the way…you two are still newlyweds after all."
Miaka's jaw dropped as Yui gave Alexander a quick bow, before running off, giggling.
Miaka sighed as threw herself into doing laundry, ignoring the rest of her meal.
Alexander had casually told her that his boss had been called away on urgent business.
Cursing, she began to strip the bed of the sheets, blushing as recalled what had taken place last night ….
That was when she slipped and fell on her butt. The king sized bed would be a pain in the butt to deal with, especially since she wasn't that tall.
"Need some help ?"
Shaking her head, Miaka jumped onto the bed as she began to gather the sheets…..as she could feel herself blush as she heard him chuckle softy.
Still, she knew better than to look at him when he was dressed for work…in a suit, he looked good.
And with her mood, it wouldn't take much for things to get her mind to…..take a turn for the gutter.
Satisfied she had everything, she got down and grabbed the bedding...and stepped on something.
"What was that?" her husband asked from the door way.
Miaka gulped as she knew it was those shopping bags….they must've gotten tangled in with the bedding.
Looking up, she found he had taken his tie off and had the first six buttons of his shirt were undone…it was so hard to keep from salivating.
"Nothing!" she said, hearing the nervousness in her own voice.
Miaka blushed as cleaned up the lunch mess. Just the looks he'd given her...he'd eaten more than she had.
Thankfully, he hadn't pushed her and had been working at his laptop for almost an hour, and she had used that time to finish up the housework.
Truth be told, she just didn't know how to act sexy…
Still. If she trusted him….and he hadn't pressured her…and Yui was right.
She combed out her hair, added bit of makeup, and slowly put the red silk and lace negligee. This time, she wasn't wearing anything that didn't come to her ankles.
After making the bed, she had taken a quick shower, and hoped her husband would still be working.
As she looked at herself in the mirror, she had to admit looked pretty…not in a sexy way, but in another way.
Opening the bedroom door, she ran and jumped into bed. Still, what would get him to come right away?
"Alexander, can you come here please? I think I got bleach on one of your ties!"
When she saw him in the doorway a few moments later, she gave him a gentle smile as he just stared at her before slowly walking over to the bed.
"We're saying at the Four Seasons hotel in Chinzan-so. I managed to get us a superior garden-view room" he said, as he cooked breakfast for them both the next morning.
Miaka smiled as she sipped her coffee.
"When are we leaving?"
That was when the phone rang as Miaka smiled, looking perky.
Casually, Alexander answered it, making sure that the food would be properly cooked.
"Hello ? When? Okay, just meet us. I'll email you the instructions later" he said sounding cranky.
"Who was that?" she asked, as he hung up the phone.
"Taka. He's coming in tomorrow…so I just told him to meet us at the hotel."
Miaka howled with laughter as Alexander looked….very annoyed.
Packing her bags, Miaka smiled.
"Of all the times he could visit…" Alexander murmured as he began to pack toiletries for them both.
"Thank you sweetie…" Miaka said as she tossed in more of her recent purchases into her suitcase.
"Don't thank me….I don't want him to ruin our honeymoon. If he does….I'll close down his bank account."
"Why would he?"
"Because he's staying for at least a week…to think I'm paying for all this… "
"It won't be so bad…and it'll still be nice to have some time alone."
As Miaka buckled herself in, she gave him kiss on the cheek.
"Um, what are those?" she asked as she saw two wrapped gifts on the back seat.
"You'll just have to wait until we're in our hotel room to find out."
The hotel was simply elegant….. she looked on, in awe of how she was actually staying in such an expensive place.
She was still getting used to the lifestyle, as she had never pictured getting married to such a wealthy man…much less one was dead sexy, and her former enemy.
As he checked in, she smiled, unaware that once again, she and her husband would soon be summoned.
But this time, they wouldn't be alone.
To be concluded…Sacrifice II
