Zaiden smiled as he watched his wife. It was their anniversary and he had surprised her with a second honeymoon to the same place as their first.
“I keep expecting your parents to come down the trail.”
“So do I.” He reached his hand out to help her over a rock in the trail. “We are on our own this time.”
She kissed his cheek and smiled. “A week alone with you? I can think of plenty of things to occupy our time while we are here.”
He slipped an arm around her and kissed her softly. “I am the luckiest man in the world.”
“What makes you say that?”
“I have you.”
“When you put it that way, you are pretty lucky.”
He smiled and kissed her again. “You keep it up and I[‘m going to take you back to the lodge and show you how lucky I am.”
“Don’t make promises unless you plan to keep them.”
He picked her up and put her over his shoulder and headed back down the trail to the lodge.
“Zaiden! Put me down! People are staring at us.”
He carried her all the way back to the lodge and dropped her onto the bed.
“A week here with you acting like this, whatever will we do with our time?”
Zaiden reached for his belt as he kicked his shoes off.
“I have plenty of things we can do. Most of them can be done right here in this room.”
