An Anniversary Day

Back after what seems like Eon’s, and for sure missed you all…  Always nice to be back. Two versions on the photo.

“Can we, stay there” asked Jean, pointing the Hotel?

‘At the Marriott, for a week?’ John almost burst out loud, but was left unsaid.

His mind had already started a battle of the heart vs the brain. 50th Anniversary and he had planned his annual day at the beach, the two of them, but here was Jean asking for the first time.

Other than love, she had never asked for anything and he had received 100 times more than what he had ever been able to give.

“Let’s book the suite”, came the reply. A smiling snuggle was the reward.

The image gave two versions, as usual, a happy one (above) and a vengeful one: One Life

About asarpota

Like to fly, but at the same time, quite on the ground, and do tend to be realistic. Very passionate about what I believe in and do, no patience with idiots, not a perfectionist, but trying to come close to it.... Not a nerd btw, value my friends very much, can criticize and have the b***s to take it on my chin. A spade is a spade!!!

      Being a guy, cannot but help comment. Men need to learn unconditional love. There are so many women that you see and who are absolute filled with love. I guess that is the speciality of being a woman??… Thanks for the note..

    I like this one better, it’s sweet. And about time the wife got a bit of luxury.

    Just celebrated our 50th. I asked for something special, we did not go to the beach. 😉

    I liked the idea that she was asking for the first time. The woman is a saint, if all he’s been offering is a day at the beach. 🙂
