She pulled up to his place, nervous, with a small bag in hand. She’d never taken over control before, but she had it all carefully planned.
She climbed up the steps and knocked on his door. He was expecting her at least. He answered, still dressed in pajama pants and no shirt. She let out a sigh, she loved that look on him. He put his hand on his hip and smirked. “Like what you see?”
She blushed, then pushed her way through. “Yeah, yeah, enough of your modeling.” She made light of the moment, then she turned. “Here, put this on.”
He looked in the bag and scrunched up his nose as he tried to figure out what this meant. “I’ll freeze to death in that!”
She smiled. “Just do it. You can put warmer clothes on top!” She had crossed her arms and tapped her fingers on her upper arm.
He wandered down the hall, shaking his head, wondering what she was up to.
“Do you trust me?” she hollered after him as he walked away.
“No.” he flatly answered in his jokingly dead pan voice.
Moments later, he came back out, fully dressed. She pulled at the waistband of his jeans and looked. “Good, you really have them on.” Then she smiled sweetly. “Ready to go?”
“Go where?” he questioned. “What are we doing?”
“Don’t you no never mind! I took care of everything, even your Mom knows where you’ll be and don’t worry about work!”
He raised his eyebrow. How would work be involved, and why would his mom need to know. “But, what? Where are we…”
She interrupted him. “Do you trust me?” She looked at him with innocent eyes, but a devilish grin. “Come on.” She motioned to the door and took his hand.
The cold air outside was bone-chilling. He really didn’t like to be out in weather where layers and scarves were needed, but he still didn’t understand why she’d have him put that underlayer of what looked like a bathing suit and beach top on in this weather.
At least she had left the car running so it was nice and toasty when they got in. They both climbed in. “Want to go on an adventure?”
His lips curled. He knew she was up to something, but adventures with her were always fun at least. He shook his head as she pulled out and drove away.
A short while later, she pulled the car into the remote parking area at the airport. He figured they were going somewhere, but where? For how long?
After making it through security, he looked at her. Then she turned to him with a black scarf in her hand. “Here. Put this on. Make it comfortable, but you can’t peek.” She shook her finger at him.
“I’m going to look quite funny stumbling through the airport with this on,” he protested.
She laughed. “Do you trust me?”
He shot her a glance and smiled, but his voice quivered a bit. “Sure.” He donned the blindfold and she took him by the arm, guiding him to their gate to wait for the plane. She purposely sat at the wrong gate and then handed him noise cancelling headphones. He chuckled. “What, afraid I’ll hear something?”
She chuckled. “Yeah, something like that. Put them on.”
“Wow, getting a little bossy there lady. You sure you want to do that?”
She leaned in and sultrily whispered , “I know you like it when I do.”
His face lit up and blushed a little bit, then he put on the headphones. She had connected them to his phone so he could enjoy some music while they waited.
She spied that the gate staff arrived and made her way to the gate. She explained her plan and they agreed to let them board first so she could surprise him after they were on the plane with the destination. She walked back over to him while the inbound plane unloaded. Everyone was tanned, wearing tropical clothing, and in for a shock of the cold environment they were coming back too.
She thought to herself, that will be us in a week, and smiled. The gate staff finally waved to her so they could board early.
She bent down and pulled his headphones “Okay, they’re ready for us!” She guided him to the gate and scanned the electronic boarding passes, then led him to their seats.
“Oof! Cushy seats!” he exclaimed as he settled in. “Are we in first class? Do I smell coconut?”
She giggled as she sat down. “Okay, put these on again.” She handed him the headphones. “I’ll tell you where we’re going after we pull away from the gate.” There’d be no escaping at that point, she thought to herself.
She smiled. She was pleased she’d made it this far with out entirely spilling the beans. Hopefully he’ll be just as happy when he finds out where they are going.
