“I love you very much, Ricky!”
“I love you very much too, Maya!”
Richard held Maya’s chin, then lowered his lips again to hers, giving her a lingering kiss this time, while they were still as closed as two persons could be. Maya was getting weak in the knees with the kiss Richard was giving her. They were both breathing hard after that searing kiss.
“Maya, my love, let’s sit again and get more comfortable. You are making me weak in the knees.” Richard said with a loving, teasing smile, as he got hold of Maya’s hand, and led her to the rattan chairs where they sat earlier.
However, when they got there, Richard sat first, and then gently reeled Maya in, until she was sitting on his lap. Maya made herself comfortable, fitting perfectly into Richard’s lap. Like Richard, she wanted to stay as close to him as possible to savor their very special moment.
“Happy, my love?” Richard asked Maya softly, caressing her hair while she half-reclined against him and her head was pillowed on his chest, her arms around him, and his around hers.
“Sobra-sobra, Ricky, I feel like my heart will burst from sheer happiness! I was not really expecting that you will propose to me this evening. But it was a wonderful surprise. Ikaw ha, grand production pa. I loved it very much. I love my ring. It’s so beautiful.” Maya said, happy, gazing at Ricky with a big smile.
“Siyempre naman, eight years in the making ang proposal ko sa iyo. Pero, I must admit, I felt nervous while doing it. Kasi, what if nabigla ka, or ayaw mo pa akong sagutin kasi we just got back together.” He confessed, as he tightened his embrace and started caressing her arm, rhythmically.
“Ricky, even if I was so surprised, there was only one answer in my head and my heart, and that was yes. Like what you have said, eight years without each other was long enough. Eight years with you, was a lifetime to me too. Besides, you are the only one I want to spend the rest of my life with. I love you, I love you, a million times.” Maya said as she started raining kisses on Richard’s face. “I will marry you in as many churches as we could, in this lifetime and in the next, and in the next pa. I’m sure we will find each other there also.”
“Maya, Maya, my heart is so full.” Richard said softly. “The feeling in my heart right now, it is indescribable.”
“Me too, Ricky! Me too.” Maya said as she embraced Richard tighter, as not wanting to let go. this is very, very real. They are really here, engaged, commiting to each other for the rest of their lives.
They stayed liked that for quite sometime, just enjoying the moment. After a while, Richard thought of asking Maya if she would like to have dinner with his mother the following day, when they return to Manila, to formally tell her of their engagement and plan the wedding. However he was met with silence when he asked, and that was when he noticed her steady breathing. Just like in New York, Maya slept on him again!
Richard looked at his fiancee with an indulgent smile. It must have been the wine and the cool, relaxing breeze, he thought that lulled his love to sleep. He decided to carry Maya to her bed where she would be more comfortable. He gently put his right arm under her ankles and pillowed her head on the other one so as not to wake her up. She didn’t! She just burrowed closely and deeply into his chest.
When he reached the guest room, he gently laid her down on the bed. But when he was about to pull his arms from under her, she slowly woke up.
“Ricky….?” She asked, a bit disoriented.
“Sshhhh, go back to sleep. You are in your bed now.” Richard said softly.
“Oh, sorry for doing that on you again, just like New York, huh!” Maya sat up on the bed, a sheepish smile on her face. “It must be the wine, the gentle breeze and your chest, feeling ko nasa duyan ako. My last thought was that I like very much where I was.”
Richard gave Maya a lopsided smile. “No worries, my love! Baka you needed the rest din. Magpahinga ka na!”
“Okay!” Maya said, realizing that she and Richard are on the same bed in the middle of the night, just like in his apartment in New York. Suddenly, she felt very much aware of him. Richard was the same. A different awareness of Maya kicked in. He felt it earlier, but fought it, but now, in the dimmed lights of the bedroom, he was having a hard time doing so. He wants her, but just like before, he wanted to be gentleman and wait.
“Good night, Maya!” Richard forced himself to stand up from the edge of the bed where he ended up sitting. He needed to do this while he still can. He just realized how very sexy Maya is in that flowing dress that hugged her all curves.
“Good night, Ricky!” Maya stood up from the bed, intending to give Richard a chaste kiss.
However, as soon as their lips met, it became more. It felt like it was like the match that ignited the flame between them. Maya ended up sitting on Richard’s lap again as their lips fused hotly and they seemed to can’t get enough of each other. They touched everywhere, their lips very hungry for each other.
They muttered as their lips fused into another smoldering kiss. Richard’s tongue seeked entrance into Maya’s mouth. She opened her mouth to let him in. His tongue explored and seeked out her tongue and invited it to a hot duel. Maya’s breasts grew heavy with wants, and the need to be touched badly. Richard felt like all the blood was pooling on his hard member. Maya can feel the effect of Richard’s desire for her.
“Maya, my love, I think we better stop while we still can….” Richard said in between labored breathing and giving Maya searing kisses, his hands, like they have a life of their own, stroking her gently, up and down the slope of her buttocks. The thin material of Maya’s dress not really providing a protection against the heat generated by Richard’s caress.
Maya was so lost in the sensations she was feeling, that at first she didn’t hear Richard. She looked at his desire-laced eyes, seeing the control he wanted to exert, and made a decision.
“We don’t have to stop, Ricky. I want to belong to you completely this evening.” Maya said, her voice husky with desire and resolve.
“Maya, my love, are you sure?” Richard just have to ask her one more time, while he still can.
“Yes, my love. I have never been more sure in my life. I want to give you all of me.”
“Oh Maya….” Richard said huskily, caressing her face lovingly, then giving her another searing kiss.
Maya responded fervently to Richard’s kiss, nibbling on his lips as he did to hers. Richard’s hand starting moving towards the underside of Maya’s breast, leaving a trail of hot touch, then he moved to cup her breast through her dress, at the same time leaving little kisses from her face to her neck and collarbone. He play with her breast thoroughly, making Maya want more, something that she can’t fully define. She felt she was on fire. Richard was trying to slow down a bit. He knows Maya is innocent.
“Ricky, the way you make me feel…..”
“Maya, my love I’m on fire for you too. I want you very much.”
“Take me, Ricky, all of me, I’m yours.” Maya said breathlessly, desire and love for Richard making her lost for words.
Richard and Maya looked at each other like they want to devour each other, all the desire, wants and love they feel for each other on display on their faces. Then Maya, started touching Richard too, half-sitting on his lap, straddling him.
Richard, on the other hand, gave Maya’s other breast the attention he was giving the other earlier. Maya unbuttoned the rest of Richard’s shirt, wanting to touch him, skin to skin. She was guided by instinct. Richard started untying Maya’s dress from her nape, until it momentarily lodged on her breasts, then pooled at her waist. Maya’s beautiful breasts, nipples hard, were now bared to Richard gaze as the bra he thought she was wearing was built-in into the dress. He gasped, not expecting it. He almost lost total control.
“Maya, my love, you are so beautiful….” He said heatedly, admiringly.
“Ricky…..” Maya felt she would melt the way Richard is looking at her. She forgot to be self-conscious, even if for the first time, she was bared before a man, for the man she loves with all of her.
It was Maya’s turn to gasp, with heat pooling up to her feminine core, when Richard’s hand touched her bare breasts. He started kneading one, his thumb, flicking the nipple. He did the same to the other one until they became pebbled hard and Maya felt like she is boneless. But Richard was not content with that. He lowered his mouth to one breast, then use his tongue to play with it, paying extra attention to her hardened nipple. Richard did the same to her other breast.
“Oh Ricky, that feels so good….I’m going crazy….I want more….” Maya muttered incoherently, at the same time, blindly seeking Richard’s body, touching him, then raining kisses on his neck and whatever part of his bared, muscled upper body she could touch and torched with her heated kisses.
“Maya, you make me feel so much also. I’m crazy with want to. I want you like I haven’t wanted. I love you very much with all of me.” Richard said, fighting for control, and losing the battle. He gently removed Maya’s dress until she was only in her black, skimpy underwear. Richard swallowed hard. He fully laid her gently on the bed, then proceeded to remove his shirt, then the rest of his clothes, until he was completely naked before Maya, her eyes feasting on his magnificent physique. And him on her beautiful body.
Richard approached the bed, looked at Maya with so much love and desire. At that moment, he had a hard time believing that finally, they were there about to bring their love for each other on another level. He touched Maya’s face gently, gave her another smoldering kiss, then he moved towards her neck, her collarbone, and her breasts again, wrecking havoc, at the same starting caressing her thighs, moving maddeningly slow, removing her last piece of clothing in the process. Maya waited with bated breath on what was to come, at the same time, she was caressing Richard’s back, wrecking havoc of her own. Then she gasped as Richard’s hand touched her feminine core, at the same time, his lips swooped down on hers again. Coupled with Richard hardened length pressing on her side, the twin assault to her senses was too much for Maya.
“Ricky, I want to touch you too,” Maya said, her voice breathless.
Richard felt like there was a conflagration inside him when he felt Maya’ first tentative touch on his hardened length.
But when she started moving her hand instinctively, he put his on top of hers to stop her.
“Maya, I don’t think I can take that now. I wouldn’t last long, my love. Let me just love you first.” He said with difficulty.
“Oh….” What he wanted to convey dawned on Maya, making her feel glad that there was no one else for him too.
Richard gave her a loving smile, then resumed his attack on her senses.
“Ricky, pleaseee….I want….I want….” was all she managed to say, but Richard understood.
He looked at Maya tenderly. “My love, I will be gentle. I need to be inside you now. I don’t think I will last long.”
Richard poised himself over Maya and slowly, and gently entered her. Maya accommodated him and after an initial pain, she and Richard moved to the rhythm between a man and a woman, as old as time, both wanting to reach the heights, with Richard the experienced one between them, driving the pace, guiding her. And they flew together to fulfillment.
Richard lovingly and gently wiped the sweat off Maya’s face and caressed her hair several minutes after they came down to earth.
“My love, are you okay?” He asked tenderly, gently touching her lips with his thumb. “I love you very much.”
“Ricky, I’m okay. I’m so happy.” Maya said smiling, gazing at Richard with so much love. What she was feeling at that moment was beyond words. Finally, she and Richard became one. “What I feel right now, I can’t put into words. I’m just so full and so very very happy.”
“Me too, I’m beyond words. Thank you, my dearest love for the gift of you.” Richard said with too much emotion on his voice, then kissed her tenderly again.
They stayed liked that for a while, skin to skin, no barrier between them, savoring their moment. When sleep came, they slept like babes, their bodies still interwined. They both woke up, suddenly, at dawn. They gazed at each other, igniting again the fire between them, making the night hotter.
The following morning, Maya woke up with someone raining feathery kisses on her. She slowly opened her eyes with a smile for her loving fiance. She felt a bit sore, but wonderfully so. There was not an inch of ther that escaped Richard’s touch and lips and she felt so well and thoroughly loved throughout the night.
“Good morning, my love, my beautiful wife-to-be.” Richard said with a big grin on his handsome face, offering her a single, long-stemmed red rose.
“Good morning, my handsome husband-to-be. I love you very much.” Maya said as she half-reclined on the bed, accepting the rose, and with only the thin white blanket covering her and her nakedness. That did not escape the gaze of her fiance.
They looked at each other, then just like that, the fire was reignited. The breakfast Richard prepared got eaten at lunch. They had other priorities. They both gave way to satisfying a different kind of hunger the whole morning. Maya and Richard just can’t get enough of each other. Their love for each other throughly expressed again on the physical level that lovely morning.
Richard and Maya almost missed their flight back to Manila.
