"Are you upset that we didn't have a reception?" Austin asked. He and Sam were still in bed on their third day of their honeymoon.
"No, not really." Sam cracked a smile at him. He reached over and moved her hair out of her face.
"What do you want to do today?" He asked.
Sam used the blanket to cover herself, and she sat up. "Well, yesterday we sat on the beach and relaxed, and the day before that, We went to the spa. Why don't we go and check out the island?"
"Your wish is my command, Mrs. Ames." Austin kissed his wife's hand.
Back at the diner, Rhonda put Sam's bouquet, which she caught when Sam threw in, on the wall with the other items that made up Hal's.
"You missed a spot." Rhonda said to Fiona when she got down. Fiona started grumbling. "What was that?"
"Nothing." Fiona said, and went back to scrubbing the floor.
Now fully dressed, Austin and Sam went around the island, seeing all there was to see. They stopped at shops and little huts.
"This place is amazing." Sam said. "It almost makes me not want to leave."
"I know what you mean, but we have to get back sooner or later." Austin said. "Unless you don't want to go to Princeton now."
"No. That hasn't changed and since we're going together, that makes me want to go all the more." Sam replied. She stopped to sniff some flowers.
A tourist stopped and asked if she could get their picture.
"Sure." Austin said, pulling Sam close. She wrapped her arms around his waist and smiled brightly.
Two days later, Rhonda was busy trying to get Sam's house cleaned up. Sam and Austin would be coming home in three days. She bent over the couch to get something.
Suddenly, someone reached out and grabbed her waist. "Ahh." She screamed. When she turned around, Sam and Austin were standing there. Sam was laughing real hard. "What are you two doing here?"
Austin looked around. "I thought we lived here. Oh, well, we must be mistaken." He teased.
"Not what I meant."
"We just got tired of relaxing and missed everybody." Sam explained.
"You might want to hide. Carter is coming over to help and he should be here any minute." Rhonda stated.
As if on cue, Carter's dad pulled in. "Thanks for the lift, dad. You know if i had my own car..." He started.
"Forget about it." Carter's dad said, backing out.
"Worth a shot." Carter whispered to himself.
Sam and Austin hid in the closet.
"What took you so long?" Rhonda asked. "Sam and Austin will be home in a few days. We need to get place in order." She tried really hard to suppress the grin that was itching to appear.
"Sorry. Dad had to..." Carter started, but got cut off when Sam jumped out of the closet and tackled him.
"You should try out for football." Austin joked.
"What are you guys doing home?" Carter asked.
"Missed everyone." was the simple reply.
"Someone said this house needs cleaned up. Anything we can do?" Austin offered.
"You two can go and swim in the pool. As far as I'm concerned, you're still on your honeymoon. Carter and I can do it."
"But..." Sam tried.
"No buts. Now get." Rhonda shooed them upstairs.
Austin had never seen Sam in a bathing suit before. She was absolutely stunning.
"Ready?" Sam asked. He nodded, speechless. She ran and did a cannonball into the pool, Austin soon following behind her.
