ONE MORE CHANCE--CHAPTER FOUR--PART 29--ANNIE & MICHAEL-THE NEXT MORNING
Michael woke before Annie. It was important for her to get her rest, so he watched her sleep for a few minutes. One of his favorite past times he was coming to realize. She looked lovely. Like an angel. She had surprised him last night. She had been particularly sexy and frisky, often initiating moves that made him feel oh so glorious. They had continued their celebration for several more hours then finally because they were both exhausted, they fell asleep in each others' arms.
He got up carefully so as not to wake her. He felt so happy and carefree. It was the first time he had felt like this in a long time. He suddenly wanted to look at Annie's picture that she was drawing of him. He pulled his jeans on and nothing else and padded out barefoot to the other room. He looked back once just to make sure she was still sleeping and she was.
He went over to Annie's nook and took the cover off the drawing and stood there pondering it. In the bedroom Annie stirred awake slowly and reached out for Michael, when she found he wasn’t there she panicked for a few seconds and then calmly called out his name, “Michael?” “I am in here Annie,” he called back. She smiled. She got out of the bed and started to reach for her robe but then eyed Michael’s shirt tossed to the floor last night. She went over to it and picked it up and first held it close to her inhaling his heavenly scent. And then she put it on. She buttoned it up and rolled the sleeves up a little bit. She gave herself a little hug. She was feeling so good this morning. Last night had been the most glorious night of her life. She blushed when she thought of some of the moves she had initiated on him—but he had encouraged her so sweetly and lovingly and she had felt like a goddess.
She came out to the other room. She observed him shirtless and shoeless. His hair was sexily disheveled and he was casually standing intently looking at the collage of himself. He looked so serious, her heart skipped a little, but then he looked over at her and gave her one of his fabulous smiles. He held his arm out and she rushed over and slid into his embrace. “Good morning beautiful girl,” he whispered in her ear. “Good morning Michael my love!” she whispered back. He squeezed her tenderly. “You look far better in this shirt than I do madam!” he said giggling. “Oh thank you kind sir,” she said curtsying. He laughed. “How are you and my little baby doing this morning,” he asked caressing her tummy. “We are just fine and dandy this morning. No morning sickness for once! Yeah!” she said lightly.
“Whatcha doing out here?” Annie said. He moved her so that she was in front of him with her back pressed against his chest and his arms looped in front of her, his hands gently still caressing her belly. “I am looking at the story of my life,” he said. “I hope I didn’t do anything to upset you….I wasn’t sure how you would feel about me putting the young Michael in there,” she asked nervously. “No it’s great. It makes me nostalgic. All these images help me realize how much I have accomplished over the years. It’s such a great piece and I love it and I love you for doing this for me,” he said lightly kissing her on the top of her head. “Will I be able to take it home with me tonight,” he asked. “It’s still needs a little bit of finishing. You have to let me keep it here. I can work on it while I am packing up my stuff. And then by the end of the week I will have it packaged and I will personally bring it on the flight with me and present it to you when I return to your loving arms once more,” she said with a dramatic flare. He laughed. “That sounds great. I will have two things to look forward to. Seeing you again, and seeing my masterpiece completed!”
“So what’s the plan for the morning my lady,” he said to her. She turned around in his arms so she was facing him. “Well I think we should have a shower and then we can make some breakfast. And then while we eat we can talk about what’s going to happen next,” Annie said. She reached up and kissed him lightly. “Is the invitation to shower together still available,” he whispered sexily into her ear. “Is that what you desire Michael,” she said coyly, fluttering her eyelashes and bowing her head slightly. He smiled at her and said, “It is what I desire Annie, you, naked in the shower!” She giggled and said “Well let’s go then.”
Annie's bathroom was atypical of Manhattan, tiny, or cozy, depending on how you looked at it. She started the water and then they kept bumping into each other as they took off their clothes, luckily neither of them had much clothing on to begin with so in a matter of minutes they were stripped down and carefully climbing into the shower together.
Michael held her and turned her so that she was standing under the water letting it flow over her head. He looked down at her, her eyes were closed and she had an angelic smile on her face, water droplets glistening off her face and her hair and her breasts, like tiny diamonds. He smiled at her and said "You are even sexier when wet." She laughed at him. "Your turn beautiful," she said to him spinning around so that now he was letting the water flow down over his body. He looked just as sexy she thought to herself. He turned his face up into the spray. His long hair was wet and when he gave it a shake it looked like a lion’s mane flowing down around his neck and back. With the water running off his shoulders and chest, he looked like some sort of mythical beast ready to roar. She moved closer to him and reached up and kissed him letting the water flow down over both of them now.
The kiss intensified and he moved her so that her back was against the far wall of the shower. He pressed his wet body up against hers. She could see and feel that he was hard for her. His chest was pressed sensuously against hers. She reached up and looped her arms around his neck letting her hands caress the back of his head. He could feel the spray of the water hitting his back. “Let’s pretend were under a waterfall Annie," Michael whispered in her ear. “Out in the forest, somewhere secluded. I imagine you naked, sunning yourself on a rock after we finish making love under the water," he said gruffly as he pushed the entire frame of his wet, slippery body against hers.
"That sounds heavenly...you and I, alone. Make love to me Michael," she said impetuously. And he willingly complied. "I am going to lift you up Annie and I want you to wrap your legs around me okay my beautiful aqua goddess?" he said playfully. She nodded her head, smiling up at him. And then he grasped her around her hips and lifted her up letting the wall support her back. She wrapped her thighs around his waist and he thrust himself inside her with one quick wet glide.
The sensation was even deeper and fuller than last night. She sharply breathed inwards and wrapped her arms tighter around his neck. "I am not hurting you, am I," he asked in a concerned voice. "No, Michael!" she practically moaned out. "That's my girl," he whispered in her ear as he started to pull in and out of her. She closed her eyes and let her head roll back so that it was against the wall. "Open your eyes Annie and tell me what you feel," he said. She opened her eyes and found herself staring into his smoky, brown eyes, glazed with desire for her. "I feel like I am so connected to you right now...I…I feel like I am full of your love Michael. So much love Michael it's overflowing out of me like the water dripping down my body," she said in a languid whisper back to him.
Her body was wet and slippery and so was his but they managed to get a rhythm going that was satisfying both of their needs. He buried his face in the crook of her neck, kissing her tenderly there and then moved her slightly up more so that he could kiss and suckle her breasts always making sure that their sexual union never broke. He began to increase his thrusts and the friction of their bodies was about to both make them climax. She yelled his name out as she came and then he let himself release into her. Once he felt his body start to calm down he gently lowered her to the floor of the tub. "Hold me up Michael because I can't possibly stand after that!" she chuckled. "As you wish my beautiful girl," he said gently looping his arms around her waist holding her close to him kissing her repeatedly on her lips and on her neck singing her name in a whisper in her ear, "Annie, Annie, my beautiful girl Annie."
"Now comes the fun part Michael, we get to wash each other off!" Annie said playfully. "That's good Annie, because I always have trouble getting my back clean!" he said kissing her on her nose tenderly. They soaped each other up and then stood under the water together, rinsing off. He insisted on washing her hair and it felt luxurious as he massaged the shampoo into her hair and then held her under the water rinsing the soap out of her curly locks. Then she did the same for him. They had no idea how long they stayed in there but also typical of a New York apartment building, the hot water soon ran out and they knew they had to get out or risk becoming way to cold under the water.
Annie got two big fluffy towels and they dried each other off. Michael teased her by rubbing her extra sensuously on certain parts of her body. She said laughing, “If you don’t stop it Michael we will never get this day started,” she said. “I just want to make sure you are all nice and dry my sweet girl,” he said laughing.
Last night Michael had called Bill to tell him that he would be spending the night with Annie and he had brought up an overnight bag that Michael had packed. Annie picked up their clothing in the bathroom as Michael got dressed. He had on a pair of jeans and long sleeve button down shirt that he left un-tucked. She came back into the bedroom as he was finishing up. She had pulled on a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt and then put Michael’s button down shirt over that again. “I want to keep this with me Michael all week long. It will make me feel closer to you,” she said giving him a kiss. “I wish I could do the same, but if I show up wearing an article of your clothing that will really give them something to talk about,” he laughed.
