Gwen was sitting at the country club enjoying a short lunch
with a few of her old sorority sisters. Although it wasn’t as enjoyable as Gwen had hoped. Maybe it was because
Theresa and Ethan were enjoying lunch two tables over from Gwen and the girls. Or maybe it was the fact that her
sorority sisters wouldn’t stop talking about Ethan and Theresa.
Or maybe it was that Gwen hadn’t heard from Hank in 3 days.
Ever since their sailing date she hasn’t been able to think
about anything else but him. She reread that note he wrote her at least twice day.
That conversation that her and her mother still played
out in her head. “I really like Hank a lot and I won’t let my mother or anyone else spoil it for me!” Gwen thought
Gwen excused herself from the lunch making up a lie about
some business meeting.
She left the club and walked out to her black Mercedes
Benz. As she got closer, she noticed something lying on the car. She got to her car and saw that it was a long
stemmed pink rose. Curiously she picked up the rose and inhaled it’s fresh scent. Their was a small card pinned
to the stem:
Something to make you smile beautiful.
Knowing what she wanted to do Gwen hopped in her car and
Hank sat in his new office at the FBI offices that were
newly based in Harmony.
“I’m really proud of you buddy.” exclaimed Luis.
“And why is that? You’re usually the one getting all the
appraisal!” joked Hank.
“Well, you’re finally establishing yourself in something
that you’re really good and professionally. I’d never realized it.”
“I do my best , but keep praising me I love it!” Hank boasted.
“Congratulations.” a female voice chimed in.
Hank froze and looked up to see Gwen standing in the door
way with a bottle of champagne and two glasses.
“I should probably be going I promised Sheridan I wouldn’t
be long.” Luis said taking the hint and patting Hank on the shoulder.
“See ya..” Hank said not taking his eyes off of her.
“Thank you for the rose...” Gwen said walking into the
“Thank you for the champagne.” Hank stepped forward.
“Thanks for tucking me in.”
“Thanks for the sailing trip!”
“Enough ‘thank you’ Gwen said as she placed the champagne
down on the desk.
She placed her hands around his neck and looked straight
into his eyes with so much intensity. He returned the intense look knowing what he wanted to do. He wrapped his
arms around her waist and pulled her close.
“What is happening between us?” Hank whispered softly.
“I don’t know it doesn’t make any sense!” She leaned her
forehead to his, “but I trust it.”
Finally, their lips touched igniting something that as
been yearning to happen for some time.
As their kiss grew deeper and more passionate the intensity
of the moment grew stronger. Hands began to wonder and kisses were so deep and intense.
Hanks hand wondered up the back of her shirt. As Gwen placed
her hands on his chest. Their desire continued to grow with each kiss until......
“Stop I can’t do this!”
