Six weeks later:
"That goes over, Rob," Kate pointed, turning back to her own box as her son-in-law stacked the box into the back of the U-Haul truck.
"Mom, did you say you wanted to keep the holiday decorations or donate them?" Megan asked, tapping the box marked HOLDAY.
Kate stopped what she was doing and contemplated Megan's box. "Do you want them?" she asked.
"I have no room for these at my house."
"Damn. Well, I guess go ahead and load them. If Danni doesn't want them, we can donate them there. I'm sure there are Goodwill stores in Munson."
"Why on earth would you get rid of Christmas decorations?" Danni asked, cutting across the lawn to where Megan and Kate stood.
Beyond excited, Kate ran the short distance to Danni and nearly knocked her over with the force of her hug. Laughing, Danni caught her.
"Hello to you, too," she said, keeping Kate on her feet. "I'm sorry I couldn't get here earlier, but business in San Diego took a little longer than I expected."
"It's so good to see you," Kate gushed.
"It's good to be seen," Danni grinned.
"Hey, Danni!" Megan enthused, walking over to her and giving her a hug, as did Rob.
"Hey. I hear some major congratulations are in order." She smiled at the young couple. "I'm so happy for you."
"Come with me." Kate grabbed Danni by the hand and led her into the empty house where they wouldn't have a street full of neighbors watching. "I want to give you a proper greeting." Kate wrapped her arms around Danni's neck and pulled her down for a passionate kiss, which was readily returned.
"I missed you so much," Danni murmured, caressing the soft skin of Kate's cheek.
"I missed you, too. I think this has been the longest six weeks of my life!"
Danni grinned in understanding. "Are you sure about this?" she asked, indicating the empty house around them.
"More sure than anything. I'm ready," Kate assured, followed by another kiss.
"Then let's do it."
An hour later, Megan held onto her mother for dear life. She was doing her level best to keep her tears in; she didn't want her mom leaving with any regrets. "You guys be safe," she whispered into the hug.
"We will," Kate assured, gently rocking her daughter, who she could sense was barely holding onto her emotions. "If you need anything, and I do mean anything, " she said, pulling out of the hug but holding her daughter by the arms. "you call me. I'm an airplane ride away, sweetie, and I'll be here in an instant."
"I know," Megan smiled, a tear managing to find its way out. She quickly swiped at it. "Don't cry, Megan," Kate said softly, bringing up her hand to gently wipe away a second tear. "We'll see each other soon."
Megan nodded, taking several deep breaths as she tried to reign in her emotions. The situation and extra dose of hormones weren't helping things any. "I love you."
"I love you, too."
Danni watched the two and for a moment wondered if she was doing the right thing by whisking Kate off to the other side of the country. Her attention was grabbed when Rob walked up to her and took her in a hug.
"You take care of her," he said, giving a final squeeze then pulling away.
"I will. You do the same, mister," she demanded.
Rob chuckled. "You got it."
Danni pulled away from Rob in time to see Megan walking over to her. She saw the tears in her eyes, though could tell she was trying to hold strong. "She'll be fine, sweetheart," Danni said softly.
Megan nodded. "I know. I want her to be happy." She took Danni in a tight, lingering hug, which was returned. As the hug broke Megan kept her hand on Danni's arm. "I can't apologize enough for what my father did to you guys. It was wrong."
Danni was surprised that Kate had told Megan the truth, but hid her surprise behind a kind smile. "If he hadn't, Kate wouldn't have you, so maybe things happen for a reason, huh?" Megan's smile reminded Danni so much of Kate when she was just a little younger than Megan. "We're here for you guys, okay?"
Megan nodded. "Thank you. Have a safe trip."
Kate, Danni and everything Kate owned were loaded into the truck and ready to head out across the country. Danni, who was behind the wheel of the large truck looked over at Kate and took her hand, glad when Kate squeezed her fingers.
"Here we go," Danni said quietly.
Kate took in a deep breath and let it out slowly. She met Danni's gaze. "Yes. Here we go."
Danni started the powerful engine then pulled the truck out from the curb where Rob had parked it that morning.
Kate looked into the large side mirror and saw Rob and Megan standing where they'd been left, watching as the truck drove away. She easily see that Megan was fully crying now, and that brought tears to her eyes and slight guilt to her heart. Here we go.
By nightfall they'd made it into Utah . Danni found a motel and swung the large truck into the parking lot. "Baby, if you want to get us a room I'll secure the truck."
Kate hopped down from the cab and made her way into the manager's office. She secured a room and walked back to where Danni was pulling the sliding back door of the truck closed and securing it with a padlock.
"We're good to go," she said, smiling at Kate.
Kate led them to their room and let them in, Danni flicking on the lights as they entered. The room was simple and small with a double bed, dresser and table with two chairs. Kate immediately made her way into the small bathroom, as she'd needed to go for the past one hundred miles.
Danni tossed the overnight bag they'd packed to the bed and flopped down across it herself. She was tired and her butt hurt from sitting for so long. Tomorrow Kate was going to take over behind the wheel. She heard the toilet flush and the bathroom door open, Kate entering the room and lying on the bed beside Danni.
"Come here, stranger," Danni said, holding out an arm to Kate.
Kate moved over to Danni, for some reason feeling shy. She rested her head on Danni's shoulder, wrapping an arm across Danni's torso. "Long day."
"Yes, very long day." She pulled Kate a little closer, noting the slight distance. "Is everything okay?"
Kate smiled, figuring Danni would sense something. "Yeah. It's crazy, but I feel like it's my wedding night or something."
Danni chuckled. "What? Why?"
Kate lifted her head and looked down into the bemused expression on Danni's face. "I know, it's stupid. I feel kind of shy, like I'm not sure what I'm allowed to do, or what to be comfortable with."
Danni brought a hand up and tucked Kate's hair behind an ear. "It's just me, Kate. The same ol' Danni."
"I know. I told you it was stupid."
"It's not stupid. I imagine the knowledge that you're about to start a new life away from everything and everyone is kind of scary."
Kate nodded. "It is. But," she held up a finger, seeing the fear begin to creep into Danni's eyes. "I'm not regretting my decision, nor am I having second thoughts."
Danni studied Kate's eyes for a very long moment, searching them for any sort of port in the storm of turmoil that was in her own heart and mind. Kate may have been leaving her state and her daughter, but Danni was about to venture into territory that was beyond foreign. She'd lived alone for a very long time, and had no clue how to truly share herself, her time or her space with another person, even if that person was Kate.
Kate could almost read the story behind Danni's eyes, even if she couldn't fully make out the plot. "Are you?" she asked, her nerves kicking up a notch. "Having second thoughts?"
"No," Danni said immediately, meaning it. "We'll have a lot to sort through undoubtedly, but no, I'm not rethinking anything. I love you."
Kate smiled, sunshine flowing back into her heart. "I love you, too." She kissed Danni. "Want to get something to eat then settle in for the night?"
"I think that's a brilliant plan," Danni complimented.
The found a fast food place across the street and brought their bagged food back to the room. Sitting at the table, both dug into greasy burgers and even greasier French fries.
"So, you my love are going to be coming into a winter wonderland in Maine," Danni said, sipping from her Coke.
"Really?!" Kate enthused. "You know, I've only seen snow once in my life and I was 4 years old."
"Are you serious? Only once?"
"You try living your life in California and see how much snow you see," Kate laughed.
"Well, where you're going you'll see plenty. I'd wager you might even get sick of it," Danni said before tossing a fry into her mouth.
"I don't know about that; I actually look forward to something different. San Diego and San Jose were great, but I've been in California now for more than 40 years. I'm ready to try something new."
"You have no idea how glad I am to hear that," Danni teased.
Looking across the table at Danni, Kate suddenly felt the need to be close to her, to completely break away any distance or discomfort between them. She pushed back from the table and walked over to Danni, nudging Danni to push her chair back, which she did. Kate climbed onto her lap, straddling her thighs and grinning at her.
"Well, hello there," Danni said, hands going to Kate's hips.
"You must really like this seat," Danni teased.
"Best seat in the house." Kate rested her hands on the back of the chair, her face no more than six inches away from Danni's. "Do you realize how absolutely crazy we are for doing this?"
"I do, actually. Almost like a couple of these crazy kids nowadays. All we're missing is a VW bus."
Kate grinned, liking the idea. "We could grow our hair out to our waist and wear nothing but tie-dye and long skirts."
Danni chuckled, moving her hands down along Kate's thighs until she reached the hem of her skirt. She slid her hands back up the same path they were until they rested on a satin-clad behind. "I like the skirt idea; easier access."
Kate laughed. "You're incorrigible."
"Completely and proudly. I'm not the only irresistible one in this relationship." She squeezed Kate's butt to emphasize her point.
Kate wiggled in Danni's lap, making them both smile. "What do you think your brother Billy would say about all this? Did he know about you?"
Danni nodded. "To an extent. He knew I wasn't like 'regular' girls, but I don't think either of us really knew what to call it or what to think of it at the time. And as for what he'd think, I think he'd be thrilled that I found someone who can put up with my ass."
"Oh, because you're so difficult and all," Kate said, rolling her eyes.
"I can be. What made you bring my brother up?"
"I don't know. I guess I'm just kind of sad that I wasn't able to meet any of your family, and even sadder that you don't have any left," Kate said softly, running her fingers through Danni's hair.
"Other than my mom dying a few years back, they've all been gone a long, long time. I guess I don't think about it much, though I have to admit that, as beautiful a picture as you, Megan and Rob make, sometimes it's hard."
"Why, baby?" Kate cocked her head slightly, getting lost in the amazing beauty of the woman beneath her. So often she wondered what on earth such a creature would want with her.
"Because I don't have that," Danni said simply. "Allison was my family, and now she's gone, too."
Kate's heart broke at the profound sadness she saw in Danni's eyes. "They say when one door closes another opens, and I'd say another opened with someone who absolutely adores you. Megan and Rob do, too." She cupped Danni's face. "If you want my family, Danni, they've fully accepted you into it."
"I think we're done with dinner," Danni whispered, bridging the distance and taking Kate in a deep kiss.
Kate responded instantly, pulling Danni even further into the kiss, her passion rising quickly. After a long moment the kiss broke, both breathless. "Come on."
Kate climbed off Danni's lap and led the short distance over to the bed. She turned and faced Danni as she quickly tugged her clothes off, watching as Danni did the same. Naked, they came together in a slow, and deeply passionate kiss before Danni was pulled onto the bed.
Twenty minutes later, Kate was cuddled up next to Danni, her head tucked under Danni's chin, both recovering from the intensity of the moment.
"I hope you're okay with just one orgasm tonight," Danni joked, her eyes already drooping.
Kate chuckled, pressing herself even closer into Danni's body. "You mean as opposed to the usual ten? Yes, I'm very okay with that." Her jaw cracked with the enormity of her yawn. "I'm tired too, baby."
"Good," Danni murmured, beginning to drift off. "I love you and good night."
"Good night, baby," Kate whispered, leaning up and placing a kiss on Danni's lips. "I love you, too."
The excitement of arriving had ended, Healy and Anicka now more interested in sniffing the newcomer than barking and jumping at their wayward owner. Danni leaned against the entryway into the spacious living room, watching as Kate walked from decoration to decoration, running her fingers over various surfaces and just all around reacquainting herself with a home she'd been in for a few short hours months before, and now was to be her home.
Danni's heart was pounding as she watched Kate. She knew that within the next few days her house was no longer going to look as it did now: Kate's belongings would be moved in and infiltrate what Danni had spent years creating for herself. On some level that realization excited her beyond compare, but on another level, it scared her to death and made her deeply uncomfortable.
"Are you okay?"Kate asked softly, walking up to Danni. She noticed the deep look of thought on her face and became somewhat concerned.
Kate's voice and sudden appearance before her snapped Danni out of her thoughts. She literally shook herself out of it and smiled. "Just thinking about how different it'll be here, having someone here with me all the time."
Kate immediately felt a stab of fear. "Is that a bad thing?"
"No. It's a different thing. I have to wonder if maybe the purpose of having Mary in my life for the past year was to get me ready for you."
Kate wanted to be happy at the words, but she could see the fear in Danni's eyes. "You've been alone for a long time, Danni," she began, a hand resting on Danni's arm. "Lived alone, that is. You created this cabin according to your tastes and needs, and created your life according your tastes and needs." She looked deeply into Danni's eyes, making sure she had her full attention. "I need to know right now - and the truth - if you can do this. I know I'm here, but I can just as easily go home if that's what you want or need. It kills me to say all this, but I love you enough to let you go-"
Kate's words broke Danni's heart and made her feel a loss greater than anything she could ever know if Kate walked out that door. She knew she had a lot to overcome, but also knew that she needed Kate with her to overcome it. So, she interrupted Kate's selfless offer with a kiss, cupping Kate's face in gentle hands, then pulled her into a warm embrace.
"I don't want you to go anywhere," she whispered into the hug.
Kate melted against Danni, relieved and at peace. "Danni?"
"Can we go play in the snow?"
Danni's chuckle soon turned into a full laugh. "Come on, child 'o mine."
Dressed in enough clothing to keep a person alive and well in Antarctica, Kate followed Danni to the great white wonderland that was their front yard. The snow was piled up against the house and reached to mid-calf on the ground from the recent storm that had fallen two days before.
"This is a ton of snow, Danni," Kate muffled from around the scarf that was tied around her mouth and chin.
"This ain't nothin'," Danni assured, doing her best to not laugh her butt off at just how ridiculous Kate looked. She'd asked Danni to give her enough clothing so she wouldn't be cold, so Danni had fully obliged. She knew Kate's California blood would adapt soon enough.
Before that thought was even out of her head, Danni found herself jerking back from the impact of a rather large snowball. Looking down, she saw the splattered white mess on the upper chest of her winter jacket.
Eyes wide, Danni looked at a grinning Kate. "You did not just do that."
"Yes, I did." Kate was rather proud of herself until it hit her what she'd just done and the realization of retaliation. "Now Danni," she sputtered, seeing the look in Danni's eyes. "I'm a beginner, here. Go easy!" SPLAT! Kate spat out snow, even as she lay sprawled out in it. Bringing up a gloved hand, she wiped the snow curtain away from her eyes only to see a howling Danni five feet away from her, nearly falling herself in her mirth. "So you think that's funny, huh?" Kate growled, shaking the snow off her face and from her hair. She reached up and pulled the scarf down just enough to fling the snow out that had slid down to her mouth and chin. "I can show you funny."
And the fight was on.
Danni ran - as fast as she could in a foot of snow - and ducked behind the thick trunk of a tree just before a snowball splattered on the front side. Giggling like a little girl, she fell to her knees and began to create an arsenal of snowballs. "I'm gonna get you!" she called out.
"Ya already did!" Kate called back, making her own snowball arsenal from behind Danni's Jeep.
"I'm warning you, California girl! You're no match for a pro!" Danni taunted, throwing a fastball for effect, the snow splattering on the side of her Jeep, which cause a yelp from Kate on the other side. Danni chuckled and turned back to her task.
Healy and Anicka stood on the porch watching, as though knowing that the two crazy humans were about to engage in the snowball fight of all snowball fights.
"Don't get so cocky, Nebraska ," Kate called back, making Danni laugh from behind her tree. "Pro," Kate muttered. Even so, she had to admit that, despite her inhuman layers of clothing, she was already beginning to feel the chill, and her fingers were becoming stiff. Not one to admit weakness, she pushed it all down, determined to beat Danni at her own game.
Feeling she had enough ammo, Kate slowly rose, just enough to peek through the driver's side window and through to the yard beyond the passenger window. She yelped and fell to the ground again when a giant splat hit the passenger window, followed by a cackle from somewhere out in the yard.
Kate spit out her mouthful of snow and got smart. She remained on her hands and knees but lowered her head enough so that she could see what was going on from underneath the vehicle. Her cleverness was rewarded when she saw booted feet dart out from behind the tree and gallop through the snow to a new hiding spot.
Grinning like a kid, Kate grabbed an armful of snowballs and shot to her feet, pelting an unsuspecting Danni with one after the other. Trying to shield her face and head, Danni dropped most of her snowballs, leaving her open for a ruthless attack.
Giggling like a crazed lunatic, Kate moved out from behind the Jeep, continuing the blitz attack. She gasped when Danni lost her footing as she tried to get away from Kate and fell, hitting her head on a tree.
"Danni!" Kate dropped her ammo and ran over to her, falling to her knees and tugging her scarf down away from her mouth so she could talk easier. "Are you okay?"
Danni lay there, dazed, or so it would seem. As soon as Kate was leaning over her, she grabbed her and reversed their positions so that Kate was flat on her back in the snow, Danni hovering over her. She grabbed a handful of snow and smashed it into Kate's face.
Leaning down in close, she grinned. "Welcome to Maine, baby."
Kate brushed the snow out of her face, trying not to choke on snow as she laughed. "You cheat."
"Yes I do," Danni grinned, leaning down and placing a sound kiss on Kate's cold-hardened lips. "I'm also cold and so are you." Danni pushed to her feet and helped Kate to hers, where they dusted each other off. "Come on, baby. Let's go get warm."
A roaring fire warmed the room, but still chilled, Kate and Danni lay spooned on the couch wrapped in a blanket, their naked bodies helping to create body heat. Danni was pressed into the back of the couch, Kate pressed back into her.
"Starting to warm up?" Danni asked, pulling a still-shivering Kate closer into her.
Kate nodded. "Slowly, but yes." She stared into the dancing flames and sighed. Despite her chilled body, she felt she'd died and gone to Heaven. She took Danni's hand, which rested on her stomach, and placed it over her right breast, holding the larger hand firm with her own.
"Jesus, woman!" Danni exclaimed. "That thing could cut glass!"
Kate giggled. "Well, I'm cold !"
"Here, turn over." Danni helped keep Kate from falling off the couch as she did as she was told and now facing Danni. Taking up their favorite position of entwined legs, Danni readjusted the blanket around them, gasping when the cold, pebbled flesh of Kate's breasts pressed against her own. "Better?"
"Yeah, except now my butt's cold."
Danni rolled her eyes, reaching across Kate's hip and cupping the cold flesh in question. Indeed, it was cold. "So, are ya going to be able to handle this weather, lady?"
"Mmm," Kate hummed, burying her face in Danni's neck. "If I can spend my winters right here."
Danni chuckled, using her hand on Kate's butt as leverage to pull Kate even closer into her. "Me thinks me lady is warming up," Danni purred, as she felt Kate adjust her hips even closer to Danni's. She could feel moisture against her thigh but wasn't sure if it was sweat from their combined body heat or if her little vixen was also feeling excited.
Kate lifted her smiling face away from Danni's neck and rested it on the large throw pillow, their faces mere inches apart. "That I am."
"Can I ask you a question?" Danni asked, tracing her fingernails along the underside of Kate's raised thigh.
"I'm actually really surprised I'm asking this, and feel free to not answer. When you and George were together, were you together very often?"
Kate ran her hand up Danni's upper chest and around her shoulder and to her side. "No," she said easily. "In truth, when I decided to leave George, we hadn't been intimate in years. He tried, but," Kate shrugged a shoulder, "I wanted nothing to do with it."
"Why not?" Danni ran her hand back up, following the rounded curve of Kate's behind. She could feel the heat of the moisture between Kate's legs, and knew it had little to do with sweat, just like her own. The knowledge that her touch excited Kate made Danni's blood boil all the hotter.
Dealing with her own rising desires, Kate said, "Because he wasn't you. Because he wasn't soft and sensuous, like you. Like a woman." Kate leaned forward the scant few inches and kissed Danni. "But more importantly, I didn't love him like that." She kissed Danni again, her hand gliding up Danni's side and over Danni's own arm until she cupped her breast. "Not like I love you."
Danni pulled Kate to her in a deep, passionate kiss as she pushed Kate to her back and slid on top of her, continuing the kiss. After a breathless moment, she lifted slight, looking down at a flushed Kate. "I've got an old friend that would love to say hello if you're game."
Kate saw the sensuous twinkle in Danni's eyes and felt it from her toes to her scalp. "I'd love to."
"Stay here. I'll be right back." Danni climbed out from underneath the blanket and tucked Kate in nice and snug, making her laugh.
Danni quickly padded into the bedroom where the air took a decidedly more chilly turn. Shivering slightly, she hurried to gather the old contraption that she hadn't used since that night in '49 in a motel room in San Jose, California. Danni always felt silly walking around with the phallus strapped to her hips without pants to hold it down, but she quickly made her way back into the warmth of the living room where the fire still crackled merrily, and back to Kate.
Kate glanced over to the huge fireplace and the fire within, then her gaze scanned down to the two bored-looking huskies who lay in front of it, both of which were looking back at her. Kate had to admit she felt a little strange doing this in front of the dogs, but knew she had to get used to it.
In truth, it was good to be around animals again. She and George had gotten Megan a golden retriever named Molly when Megan was 4, but unfortunately the dog had gotten hit by a car and killed three years later. Megan had been so distraught they'd decided not to get another one. Well, George had decided not to get another one; had it been up to Kate, they would have gotten another dog the next day.
Kate heard Danni re-enter the room, her gaze going first to Danni's magnificent naked body then to the phallus that bobbed amusingly from her body. Kate's smile was hidden by the blanket.
Danni smiled as she could just see Kate's eyes and the top of her head above the blanket. "You are too cute," she said, tugging the blanket up just enough for her to slide under it, then pulled it back around her shoulders from where she lay atop Kate, where she was readily accepted with a tight hug.
"Welcome back," Kate smiled, spreading her legs as Danni settled herself between them.
"It's good to be back," Danni murmured into Kate's ear, making the woman beneath her shiver a bit. She reached down between them and adjusted the phallus so it would slide between the saturated folds of Kate's sex.
Kate let out a soft sigh, her hands running down Danni's back and to her behind, cupping the flesh as Danni's hips moved the phallus against her in a slow, lazy rhythm. She could feel herself becoming wetter and wetter with each pass.
Danni held Kate in a lazy, exploratory kiss as she ran the phallus through Kate's wetness, assuring the phallus was liberally coated with Kate's own need. She pulled away from the kiss and could feel Kate's soft pants against her face. "Are you ready?"
Kate nodded, running her hands back up Danni's back until her arms were wrapped around her shoulders. "Do it now."
Danni pulled her hips back just enough for the phallus to fall into the right position then slowly pushed her hips forward, the phallus entering smoothly. They both moaned at the familiar feeling.
"I feel so full," Kate whispered with a sheepish smile. "It's been a long time."
"Are you okay? Are you uncomfortable?" Danni asked, stilling her movements.
"God no. No." Kate buried her fingers in Danni's hair and pulled her down into a deep, loving kiss. "I love the feeling of you inside me, Danni," she whispered against Danni's lips.
Danni rested on her forearms as she slowly moved her hips, stopping the thrusting motion as she rotated them in a slow grind, making them both groan at the new sensation. She left Kate's mouth and began to nuzzle her neck as she began a slow thrust again, the couch creaking slightly with her movements. Soon her lips and tongue found the warm skin, sucking gently so as not to leave a mark.
Kate's eyes slipped closed as her head fell to the side, her hands buried in Danni's hair, pressing her further into her neck. Sure that Danni could continue, she slid her hands down over Danni's neck then ran her fingernails lightly down Danni's back then spread her fingers out, feeling the smooth skin and muscle moving beneath it.
From Kate's beautiful whimpers and rising moans, Danni could tell Kate's body was building for release. She left Kate's neck and pushed up to her hands, looking down into Kate's flushed face. She used the power in her hips to increase her rhythm and thrusts, Kate responding by bringing her knees up a bit higher, allowing for deeper penetration.
Kate groaned deep in her throat as Danni picked up the pace even more, Kate's breasts moving with the power of each thrust. Kate's eyes squeezed tightly shut as Danni's thrusts became even harder and quicker, driving them both to the brink.
"God," Danni hissed, her hips slamming into Kate now as the pleasure rose to the point of no return.
Kate cried out as her body convulsed, her nails digging into Danni's back in a subconscious effort to stay grounded, even as she was flying high.
Danni didn't feel the pain as she, too released, reaching down to cup Kate's behind to press their bodies tightly together, milking each drop of pleasure out as she ground their hips together, her face buried in Kate's neck.
After long moments, Kate began to come back within herself, wrapping her arms around Danni's neck and holding her close. "My god," she panted, stroking Danni's hair. "That was unbelievable."
Danni nodded, her face still buried in Kate's neck. After a long moment, she left a kiss there then placed one on Kate's lips. "I love you."
"I love you."
"What do you say we move this into the bedroom?" Danni asked against Kate's mouth.
Kate grinned. "Do you actually think we'll have the energy for more?"
Danni chuckled. "Baby, I still got nine more orgasms to give you." She delighted at Kate's laugh. "But first," she said, gently pulling out of Kate and then climbing off the couch. "I need to let the dogs out to go to the bathroom one more time and douse the fire." She snatched the blanket off Kate's body, grinning at Kate's grab for it. "Hey, it's cold and I have things I still have to do. You go warm up the bed for us."
Kate sighed dramatically, slowly pushing up from the couch, as she was a little sore. "Fine."
Kate could hear Danni and the dogs moving around in the house as she turned down the bed and climbed in. It was chilly between the sheets, but even as she shivered, she knew they would warm up quickly, especially once Danni joined her.
With only a single bedside lamp on, the room was painted in a buttery glow that was warm and welcoming. Kate looked around the bedroom, realizing that it would be the space she'd be sharing with Danni for however long they lived in the cabin, which she suspected would be a very long time, if not forever. It was a comforting thought, and one that she was shocked at just how much she looked forward to.
"Hey beautiful," Danni said as she entered the room, quickly dropping the blanket and removing the phallus before climbing under the blankets and scooting over to Kate.
"Your yourself," Kate murmured, moving into Danni's open arms. "How cold does it get here?"
"Much colder than this," Danni warned. "But, it's so cold in here now because I had the heat turned down because I was gone. I turned it up, so by tomorrow it'll be a lot warmer."
Kate looked into Danni's eyes, turned gray in the lamplight. "Did you ever think I'd be here with you? That we'd be doing this?"
Danni shook her head. "Not in a million years. I honestly didn't think I'd ever see you again, Kate. I checked on you a time or two throughout the years, but I was essentially planning to just move on as best I could."
"You know," Kate said softly, running her fingers through Danni's hair. "as I was sitting in Carol's den, watching the coverage after Bobby Kennedy was shot, I knew in that moment that life was so short and that I had to find you again."
"What was your intention when you got here?"
Kate shrugged. "I didn't really have any, I guess. I just wanted to see you again, see if there was some possibility for... I don't know what for."
Danni smiled, leaving a kiss on the tip of Kate's nose. "Well, it only took twenty-five years, but here we are. Welcome home, baby."
Return to the Academy
