It was finally the day.
I was all packed, had my clothes and bathing suit ready.
It was finally the day of the retreat and I was so excited, I had trouble sleeping next night.
I felt really bad because Brian's been sick all day so that's ehat got me to shut up finally.
I had just talked to Val and she was on her way here.
The other girls were too.
My house was picked as the meeting spot.
I jumped around anxiously until I heard a throaty laugh come from behind me.
I ceased my jumping and turned to see Brian leaning against the door frame, laughing.
"What's so funny?" I asked, making my way over to him.
"Nothing. You're just so cute when you're excited, baby." Brian said, putting his hands on my waist when I got close enough.
I smiled and put my hand on his forehead.
My eyebrow scrunched up in worry.
"You still have a high temperature, baby." I said.
He took my hand off his forehead and put it on his cheek, holding it there.
"I'm fine, Cynthia. Stop worrying so much." He said.
"Yeah, that's gonna happen." I said sarcastically.
He laughed and pulled me into his arms.
I set my head on his chest and Brian ran his hands up and down my sides.
I moved my head up and looked at him.
I stepped on my tip toes and tilted my head up to him.
He leaned in too and gave me a kiss on the cheek.
I looked up at him with a confused expression.
He grinned and gave me a kiss on the side of my mouth.
"I don't want to get you sick, baby." He said.
"I don't care." I said firmly, pulling his head to mines.
Our lips met and it's like time slowed down, wanting me to savor this moment.
Brian pulled away after a moment and looked down at me before resting his forehead against mine.
"You know how much I love you?" Heasked me.
His question caught me off guard but I recovered quickly.
"Mmm, nope." I said playfully.
I looked up at him giggling.
He smiled and bent down to kiss my forehead.
"I." He said kissing each eyelid.
"Love." He said kissing each cheek.
"You." Kissing down my neck slowly.
"More than." He said, kissing along my collarbone softly.
My breath hitched in my throat and I fought to keep my breathing at a normal pace.
"Anything." He said coming back up to my face and giving me the most mind blowing kiss.
I smiled into the kiss and wound my arms around his neck, keeping him there.
We both pulled away, breathless and grinning.
"That is always good to hear. I love you more than anything." I said softly.
His eyes seemed to brighten at my words as if he didn't already know that.
He picked me up like a baby and brought me over to the couch, sitting me down on his lap.
He cradled me as we talked, waiting for the girls to get here.
I heard the front door open and I turned to see Nique walk in.
She saw us and a huge smile spread across her face.
"Hey! Are we excited about the retreat, or what?!" She yelled, sitting on the couch.
"Cynthia definitaley is. I hardly got any sleep last night cause she kept talking about it." Brian chuckled, giving me a squeeze.
I laughed and so did Nique.
"Cynthia, what the hell are you doing? Breast feeding?" She asked with a laugh as she looked at how Brian was holding me.
I laughed when I realized it probably did look like that.
"Yeah, I wish." Brian said with a smirk.
I snuggled into his chest and kissed it.
Then I bit his nipple.
He jumped with a yelp, not expecting it.
Me and Monique burst into laughter as Brian rubbed his nipple.
"Be careful what you wish for, babe." I said with a smirk.
"Save that for when you get back." Brian said with a wink.
I smiled and nuzzled into his chest again.
"Whoa! Virgin ears!" Nique yelled, covering her ears.
We laughed and made small talk until one by one each girl arrived.
We put all of our stuff in the car and picked our seats.
I turned back to Brian and hugged him tightly.
"I'm gonna miss you, baby." I whispered, hugging him even tighter.
He squeezed me back.
"I'm gonna miss you too. But you're gonna have fun, and I'll be waiting here for you when you get back." Brian said giving me a kiss.
"You better be." I said with a smile as I put my hand on his forehead to feel his temperature.
He felt hotter.
"Baby, you don't feel so good." I said worriedly.
"Stop being such a worry wart. I'll be fine. Now go. Have fun. I love you." Brian said giving me another kiss and a soft push to get me moving.
"Call me if you get any worse and promise me you'll go to the hospital if you can't reach me." I said sternly.
"Scouts honor." Brian said, crossing his heart.
I laughed at him and gave him one more kiss before getting in the car.
He stood and watched us drive away.
"I love you, baby." I whispered one last time.
