A Love Story
It’s 4:30 in the morning and we are laying in the bed cuddling. Ryan hasn’t been to sleep because he’s been on the computer and phone for hours. My baby looks so tired. I stroke his face kissing his sexy lips. He has a little stubble growing on his chin.
“I’m going to miss you baby,” planting soft kisses over his face.
“When are you coming back to Atlanta? I hope I don’t have to wait too long” He looks sad.
Smiling, I say, “I will be there in three weeks. I have some projects that I have to finish but I will be able to stay for two weeks.”
“That’s why I want you to move to Atlanta because three weeks is a long time.“
“I know baby but look at it this way it will give you time to handle this situation. Then you can have me all to yourself without interruptions.”
Wrapping his arms around me, he kisses me with such longing and need of something more. We stay like that until it was time for him to go. He’s all packed and ready to leave when the driver pulls up outside.
“I’m getting tired of saying goodbye,” looking me in my eyes “I will see you in three weeks. No later than that.“
“Yes and don’t make any extravagant plans.” He bends down and kisses my forehead
“I will try not to, but I’m not making any promises.” We stand there just holding each other until I push him to the door.
“Baby, you have go before you miss your flight.“
“It will not leave me, I’m the only one on the flight.” After stealing a few more kisses he gets in the car “See you later, Beautiful.” and just like that he’s gone.
It’s been a couple of weeks since Ryan left and we try to talk, text or email each other at least once a day. I have been extremely busy working my regular job and my two side hustles/hobbies, Blogging and Event planning. I had two events over the weekend that I coordinated and organized for my client: A Sip & Create event and a Blogger workshop. Plus, I have three reviews that are due by end of week on my blog. It’s always fun partnering up with a brand, but they are strict about their deadlines and I’m strict about my fee.
By this time next week, I will be in Ryan’s arms. Ryan sent me a certified letter yesterday with platinum black card enclosed. He left a note saying “buy what you want, there is no limit. Talk to you later.” He is so sweet.
Now, I’m on my way to the mall with my sister. I’m looking for a cocktail dress, a gown, and some sexy lingerie. We hit up every store in KOP (King of Prussia) mall. I found three sets of lingerie at Fredericks of Hollywood, a cocktail dress at Bloomingdale, and a couple of pairs of shoes. Tomorrow, I will go out with one of my girlfriends to look for a gown. Shopping is exhausting.
After my sister went home I poured myself a glass of wine, checked some emails, and went over my notes for tomorrow. I have two consultations set up helping entrepreneurs build their social media and brand. I used to give away information for free but now I charge for my time and knowledge. My time is valuable and now, another stream of income into my bank account. 🙂
Ryan calls and we talk about all of my projects. He expresses how he admires me for following my dreams and that he has a surprise for me when I come. I thank him again for the flowers & credit card he sent. I was glad to learn that his employee was in stable condition with only a broken leg and the job site didn’t have a lot of damaged.
“Are you nervous about your consultation tomorrow?”
“Yes a little bit since this is my first time being paid. I just want to do a good job“
“You will. Was this something you always wanted to do?”
“Not really, it just fell into my lap. One of my girlfriends suggested that I should do it. She said I’m always giving good advice and inspiring people to follow their dreams. So, I decided why not do something that comes easy to me and get paid for it.”
“I think you are going to do great. You were the one pushing me to keep bidding on the West Coast deal and to not accept anything less than what I’m worth. Now, my company have solidified a multi-million dollar contract for two years. I think your clients are lucky to have you“
“Awww. Thank you Baby“
“You’re welcome, Sunflower. I’m sorry, but it’s getting late and I have an early morning meeting tomorrow.“
“Ok, I will talk to you tomorrow.” blowing kisses through the phone.
“See you soon, Beautiful“
“Can you call me by my name for once?“
“Yes I can, (name). Talk to you tomorrow” Ryan laughs and exaggerates the syllables of my name before he hangs up for the night.
Stay tuned to see what happens next.
