Part Three: A Night to Remember
A little luck
An act of fate
Something brought us here
Now love can't wait
Time literally seemed to stand still as Ethan knelt on the sand
and gently laid her down on the blanket. His sapphire blue eyes stared into hers for what seemed like an eternity
then he smiled and Theresa knew without a doubt that he was going to make love to her. Her dream of Ethan being
her first lover was going to come true. This was where it was supposed to happen, she thought gazing into his blue
eyes, not on their wedding night like she always thought, but here, tonight, right on this beach. This was the
way it was meant to be. She could feel it down in the depths of her soul.
Theresa watched mesmerized as Ethan leaned over her and placed one thigh between her own. A second later, he lowered
his body onto hers and captured her mouth with his. The moment their lips touched, an electrical current zipped
through her body like a bolt of lightning zinged across a stormy sky. Their emotions were so raw that the passion
between them acted as a lifeline, joining them heart and soul.
Ethan placed a hand at her waist then slowly eased her shirt up. She felt his fingers touch her side first then
her abdomen until finally, his palm covered her breast. She moaned, loving the feel of his hands on her body. As
he continued to massage her breast, she lowered her hands to his waist and pulled his shirt free from the waistband.
He groaned as she ran her hands up underneath his shirt and dug her nails into his skin.
She felt his tongue run along her lips and she opened her mouth to allow him in. She loved the feel of his tongue,
as it glided against her own. She loved kissing him. It came from the heart, she knew. Every kiss, every touch
they shared, she knew they all came from the heart. They were a part of each other and she knew they always would
be. What happened tomorrow no longer mattered, because what was happening right now, tonight, was much more important.
"Ethan," she said breathlessly against his lips. "I want you."
His hand stilled then he raised his head and caught her eyes with his. The depth of emotion she saw in his eyes
literally stole her breath away. "I want you too. I want you more than I've ever wanted anyone or anything.
I love you, Theresa. I love you so much it hurts."
Fresh tears pooled in her eyes and she made no effort to hide them. They were no longer tears of sadness. These
were tears of happiness, pure soul stirring happiness. "I love you too, Ethan. I loved you before I even met
An awed smile crossed his face and then he shook his head in disbelief. "I don't deserve you."
Theresa reached up to place a hand on his cheek then looked into his eyes and gave him a smile that came straight
from her heart. "But you have me, Ethan. Body, mind, heart, and soul, you have me."
He gave a guttural growl then once again covered her mouth with his. The kiss was filled with so much tenderness
and love that she thought her heart would burst with happiness. Not only did his words say he loved her, but his
actions said so too. She didn't care what happened tomorrow, because tonight she was in Ethan's arms. Tonight she
was the one he loved with all his heart and she knew deep in her heart that he would not be in her arms now if
he still intended on going through with the wedding. Somehow, he would find away for them to be together, she could
feel it. Fate was not done with them yet, she thought. Fate would somehow bring them together. It was after all
Every tender touch is fire
Every single sound is the sound of desire
Ethan knew he didn't have the right to be making love to Theresa.
He was after all going to marry another woman tomorrow, but he couldn't seem to bring himself to stop. A part of
him, a part he didn't even know was there, had been unlocked and there was no way he could stop the roller coaster
of emotions coursing through his body. He needed to be with her tonight just as much as she needed to be with him.
He raised himself up onto his knees then reached down and pulled her up into a sitting position. A second later,
his hands slid up her sides to the edge of her shirt then tugged up her arms and over her head. The moonlight cast
just enough light that he could see her hardened nipples peaking out of the material of her white lace bra. She
was so beautiful, so breathtakingly beautiful. He wrapped an arm around her waist and pulled her to him then buried
his face in the hollow space between her breasts. Her hands wound themselves in his hair as he continued to kiss
his way across her chest. He raised a hand to the snap of her bra then slowly released the clasp. He kissed the
hollow of her neck then slowly pulled back and let the bra fell from her body. He sucked in a deep breath at the
site she provided. She was just as perfect as he knew she would be.
He reached for her, but stopped when he felt her hands on his chest. Her exquisite brown eyes took on a seductive
gleam as she slowly unbuttoned his shirt. Once all the buttons were undone, she lovingly ran her hands up his chest
and over his shoulders then slid the shirt down his arms. She leaned in to place a kiss on his chest and he closed
his eyes in pleasure. It was as if he had been waiting a lifetime to be with her like this.
He groaned as she kissed her way up his chest, over his jaw, toward his ear. Her teeth lightly nipped his ear and
he couldn't stop himself any longer. He snaked an arm around her waist and pulled her body to his. They groaned
in unison as bare skin met bare skin. The effect of her hardened nipples hitting his chest was... ethereal. He
couldn't wait until they were joined together. He knew that when they moment came it would be unlike anything he
had ever felt before.
Ethan placed a hand on the blanket behind them, then gently lowered her back onto the blanket. Then he lowered
his hands to the zipper of her pants and slowly eased it down. Their eyes met as he tugged her pants, along with
her panties, down her hips and finally pulled them from her body. He raked his gaze over her and couldn't hide
the appreciation at what he saw. She had a body men would kill to see and here she was offering it to him. He felt
like the luckiest man in the world and he knew he didn't deserve the precious gift she was giving him. Yet, he
couldn't find the strength to let her go.
Theresa reached for the snap of his pants, but he quickly grabbed her hands. "You'd better let me do that,
sweetheart. I don't think I could handle your touching me."
She blushed and he smiled then quickly shed his jeans and underwear. He tossed them to the side, but not before
getting the foil packet out of his wallet. After he had protected them, he settled himself between her thighs and
showed her exactly how much he loved her. As they fell asleep beneath the star filled sky, he knew it was a night
neither of them would ever forget.
