For the last hour, they'd been enjoying the comfort of each other when unexpectedly their intimacy was shattered by the entrance security system buzzing into life.
"What the hell was that?" Matt questioned as he suddenly paused from stroking Emilia's back to stare at the bedside clock which illuminated 8 am in the muted morning light. Emilia continued to tease Matt's neck with kisses having either not heard the sound or had chosen to ignore the interruption.
When the buzzer sounded again Matt knew he hadn't been mistaken.
"Emilia, that was the door!"
"No, it wasn't, ignore it." She peered curiously up at him whilst kissing his torso with a glint in her eye which Matt knew meant only one thing.
"No baby it was. I definitely heard the door. What time did you say your parents were coming?"
She stopped kissing Matt and stared at him annoyingly, realising the implication of his question! The one thing she needed was to feel him this morning she didn't like the fact that he was so easily distracted from her obvious intent.
"Ten thirty or thereabouts!" She replied in a dismissive manner hoping it would put a stop to his questioning and allow her to continue her teasing. She was just starting to kiss his neck again when the buzzer went for the third time. Even Emilia could not disregard it this time and sat up abruptly.
"You must be fucking joking me!" She looked at Matt irritated, before they both broke into laughter, realising she'd aroused Matt to the point it would be very difficult to now hide if someone was indeed at the door.
"Well if that's them it's going to be an interesting first introduction!" She noted with amusement looking down at his waist proud at her apparent accomplishment.
"That's not funny!" Matt smiled back. "Are they the type of people who like to turn up early just to fuck with you.
"Yep!" Emilia replied as she begrudgingly slid from under the sheets leaving Matt to only watch as she brazenly walked naked into the hallway to answer the entry system.
"Hello!" She abruptly stated as she pressed the speaker button just as the system buzzed for the fourth time.
"Emilia, it's Pater and Mamma. What kept you?" The reply came back in Swedish.
Emilia paused before replying and looked back down the hallway and longingly into the bedroom, wishing she still had time to persuade Matt that her idea of hiding was not too farfetched and could still be done.
"Well if it's inconvenient we can go!" She heard her mother saying in the background to her father. "I said we shouldn't arrive early. I told you she wouldn't appreciate it.
"No-no, it's fine. Come on up." She reluctantly pressed the button to open the entry door already dreading what was about to come.
By the time Emilia came back into the bedroom, Matt had already grabbed a towel and slipped into the shower. She hurriedly put on a t-shirt and jogging pants and had just managed to fill the kettle when she heard the front doorbell ring. She took a deep sigh before opening the door as all she could think of was how her blissful life was about to be destroyed by her parents crashing in on her party.
When she opened the door and greeted her parents, two sullen faces greeted her back impatiently as if they'd already had their precious time wasted in the few minutes it had taken their daughter to let them in.
"Did we wake you, Emilia? Her father's first words were said in a manner that resembled more of a statement of fact than a question, as he examined disapprovingly her dishevelled appearance.
"In a manner of speaking yes, Pater! You are nearly two hours early."
"Well like most reasonable people we were up at 6.30 this morning, and with nothing better to do before the flight, we thought we would just come over.
