I watched intently as Channel paced the room while she partook in a conference call for a wedding she was planning. I smiled thinking about how hard my baby worked and how much I appreciated everything she does for me. These last few months had been through on both of us since the accident. Not being able to walk on my own and do most things myself had me on edge, and very irritable, but she was being patient with me reminding me of one of the many reasons I fell in love with her.
Moving the covers off of me, I swung my legs over the side of the bed and pushed my feet into my slides before grabbing my cane and walking into the bathroom. Grabbing my toothbrush, I began to do my hygiene and not long after, Chanel came into the bathroom and began to wash her face.
"Good morning baby," she said poking out her lips. I bent down and pecked her lips and sent a soft slap to her butt causing her to giggle. "How are you feeling today?"
"I'm better. Less and less pain each and every day. Can't wait to walk without this ugly old thing" I said referring to my cane
"I'm sure in a couple more week you should be able to. You've made so much progress really quickly, I'm proud of you."
"I honestly wouldn't have been able to do it without you. I've never been able to not do for myself, and that honestly fucked with me for a little bit. I could've been in a dark place, but you kept me out of it."
"I'm your wife, Trey. I'm supposed to be around and help you. I know these past few months have been hard, but you're stronger than you're giving yourself credit for."
"Whatever, I still owe a lot to you. I wouldn't be the man I am today without you. I love you more than you will ever know"
"I love you too," she said wrapping her arms around me and kissing my chest before lifting her chin and letting me kiss her. "What are you doing today?"
"Hmm, that depends on what you have planned. You've been so busy working and taking care of me, I want to do something that you enjoy" I said as I ran my hands up and down her sides.
"But I do enjoy doing those things," she said as she rested her head on my chest causing me to chuckle.
"I know, but you need a break, and I want to give you one if you have the time."
"What do you have in mind?" she looked up at me with curious eyes.
"Dinner, brunch, lunch, shopping, whatever you wanna do" I shrugged
"Hmmmm, well it's still early we can do lunch shopping and dinner" she smiled
"Well get your ass in that shower and let's get going," I said smacking her ass causing her to laugh. She walked over to the shower door and opened it before turning on the water and stepping out of her satin robe.
"Come on. Get in with me" she said nodding her head toward the shower and I gladly obliged. I stepped out of my shorts and walked into the shower with her closing the door behind me. I licked my lips and watched her as her body glistened as she got wet and I felt my member springing to life. She noticed it too and smirked before biting her bottom lip and beginning to stroke me.
It had been months since she touched me in this way and to say I missed it would be an understatement. It wasn't that we didn't want to have sex, but with the accident and me being in so much pain, sex just wasn't on our radar, my recovery was. Even though it was hard and I had urges, I honestly believe that us refraining from sex helped mend our relationship. We had been doing so much better lately and I was happy about that. After the accident, she said she didn't want to lose me, and things seemed to be going good, but I realized that this was kind of a band-aid over our real issues. The fights returned and we realized that we needed to go back to counseling and I was proud that it was working. I had never been more in love with my wife and I only had Stephan and Patsy to thank for that.
