Chapter 22 [Part 1]
Wow! That was the most amazing dream I had. My Sage came back to me and we mated. Just then, something moved beside me in my arms. It was Sage. So that wasn’t a dream, it really happened.
I was too happy as I sat up and pulled my mate close into a hug.
“Wazgoinon?” Sage asked sleepily as she opened her gorgeous eyes and rubbed them.
“My sexy mate is here. In my bed. In my arms. That’s what’s going on,” I replied happily and crushed my lips to Sage’s before she could say anything. She wrapped her legs around my waist and we ended up making love again.
When we were, done we decided to get dressed before having breakfast. I sat Sage on my lap and fed her.
Afterwards, I wouldn’t let her go anywhere. Sage had to go to work but I didn’t let her go. What she didn’t know was that I had phoned her work place saying Sage wasn’t coming in all week and next week due to a family emergency.
“You’re not going anywhere,” I said in her ear.
“But I’ll be late for work,” Sage argued.
“No you won’t,”
“What do you mean no I won’t?” Sage asked in confusion.
“I mean you’re not going to be late because you’re not expected at work,” I explained.
“Because I rang the salon and said you wouldn’t be in all week and next week due to a family emergency,”
“Why would you do that?”
“Do you think I’d let you be apart from me for one second after being apart for so long. Don’t you think we both deserve some time together?”
“I guess,” Sage agreed.
“So we have 2 weeks together, what would you like to do?”
“I just want to spend time with you. Maybe we could go on holiday or something,” Sage suggested after thinking for a minute.
“Sounds good, where do you want to go?” I asked.
“I don’t know, somewhere nice, with good weather and good food,”
“What about somewhere with a nice bed like our room, that way we don’t have to travel anywhere we can have a holiday here anytime,” I said seductively in my wife's ear making her shiver.
“You really love our bed don’t you?” Sage asked with a knowing look. Of course I love our bed, it’s where we make love.
“It’s not the bed I love, it’s what we do there that I love,” I corrected and Sage blushed before saying
“Li we can do what we do in our bed on holiday too,”
“I know but I don’t want to be with you in a hotel bed that so many people have used for goodness knows what. At least we know what’s been going on in our bed,”
“You really don’t want to go anywhere do you? You just want to be at home with me, where we’re safe,”
“Is that bad of me?” I asked.
“No I think it’s sweet. We’ll just stay here, it is home after all,” Sage replied.
This is the best being at home with Sage. If she knew, she’d leave for good. She can never find out.
“I can never find out what?” Sage asked, Crap! I forgot she can hear my thoughts.
“Nothing,” I said quickly.
“Don’t lie, tell me what you’re hiding from me,” Sage demanded.
“I’m not hiding anything from you,” I denied.
“Yes you are,”
“No,” I argued.
“Yes,” Sage argued back.
“Ok I’ll tell you but promise you won’t hate me afterwards,” I relented.
“How can I promise that without knowing what it’s about?” Sage asked.
“Ok then promise you will not leave me after I tell you,” I made Sage promise.
“Ok I promise,” Sage swore.
I held out my hand to Sage.
“I think we should sit down,”
Sage took my hand and we sat. She squeezed my hand.
“It’s ok tell me, I promise I won’t hate you or leave you,” Sage promised.
“Your saying that now but once I tell you, you’ll hate me and leave me for good,”
“I promised I wouldn’t,”
“Just tell me,”
“Can I have a kiss first?” I asked
“Once I tell you, you won’t let me kiss you again,” I told her sadly.
“I will let you kiss me after but ok I’ll kiss you now,” Sage put her lips to mine and I kissed her like it was the last time we would kiss. She promised me she wouldn’t leave me but she will. I know she will.
“Can we make love?” I asked.
“You won’t want to once you know the truth, please can we make love?” I pleaded..
“Alright,” Sage agreed.
I led her upstairs to our bed and we made love.
“Can we do it again?” I asked hopefully.
“Ok,” Sage surprisingly agreed.
After we just lay into each others arms.
After a while Sage spoke.
“I can see how much you love me and that you don’t want to lose me, maybe you shouldn’t tell me what you’ve been hiding,”
“What if I think about it when I’m with you?” I asked. “Then you’ll know,”
“I won’t read your mind anymore unless you want me to,” Sage assured me.
“Ok,” I said and kissed her lips tenderly before Sage rested her head on my chest.
I’m amazed I managed to get my mate back, I thought she’d never come back. I know she told me not to tell her my secret and I won’t but something tells me one day she will find out and I’ll never see her again.
My secret is so bad that I don’t want to think about it but I sometimes can’t help myself. Sage said she wouldn’t listen to my thoughts anymore unless I wanted her to but what if she demands to know someday then I’ll have to tell her.
Right now she’s asleep in my arms. She’s my life, I can’t bare the thought of her leaving me again, it would kill me if she did, I love her so much. I don’t know how I survived without her when she left me.
Sage looks so cute sleeping. She always looks cute but even more so awake. I put my hand on her cheek and she moved but didn’t wake. I traced down her beautiful face with my hand and travelled down to my mark on her neck. Damn! This feels good but she’ll be angry when she finds out I touched her when she’s asleep.
“I would be if I was asleep,” Sage said as she opened her eyes.
“How long have you been awake and why were you listening to my thoughts when you said you wouldn’t?” I asked as I began to panic.
“Long enough and it’s ok for me to listen to your thoughts when I’m sure all your thinking about is me,” Sage told me and I relaxed. She doesn’t know my secret, yet.
“What if I was thinking about my secret?” I asked.
“You were before but you didn’t think about what it was so don’t worry and so what if I know your secret? We’ll still be together, I’m sure of it,” Sage said confidently.
“How?” I asked.
“Your secret can’t be unforgiveable unless you cheated on me,” Sage said.
“I didn’t cheat on you, I would never do that. I love you forever, you’re my soul mate,”
“So tell me your secret,”
“Not yet, I’m not ready to tell you,” I said truthfully.
“But you will tell me eventually won’t you?”
“Yes,” I agreed.
“Good but until then let’s not think about it ok,”
“So do you want to go out somewhere?” Sage asked.
“Ok but where?”
“Umm how about we go shopping and I’ll buy you things?” I suggested. As a guy I don’t particularly enjoy shopping but I know Sage does so I don’t mind taking her.
“But you’re always buying me things,”
This was true I buy Sage a few gifts every week. I can’t help myself. I love spoiling the love of my life.
“It’s only because I love you and like to spoil you, so shall we go shopping?” I asked.
“Ok but I want to buy something for you,”
“Ok let’s go,” I agreed and we left the house.
We spent hours shopping, I like shopping with my mate, she’s so happy when we go shopping. I’ve been buying things for her while she was away from me but I haven’t given them to her yet. Earlier she made me look away and she brought something and wouldn’t let me see.
“Why can’t I see?” I asked with a whine. I really want to know what Sage purchased.
“It’s a surprise,” Sage refused to tell me. Typical.
“Is it for me?” I asked curiously.
“When will I get it?”
“All in good time,”
I wonder what she got me, whatever it is I’m sure I’ll love it, her gifts are always lovely. Sage is a very thoughtful mate, the best present she’s got me so far is some sexy lingerie for herself obviously but to please me. We made amazing love that night, maybe she got something similar for tonight.
“Ok let’s go home unless you want to shop more,” Sage said.
“No. I want to go home. can’t wait to see what you brought me,”
We walked back to the car. I started driving.
After a few minutes, Sage held my arm.
“Sage you’re distracting me from the road stop or-” I began to say but it was too late, a lorry was coming straight towards us. The car swerved, I heard Sage scream and then everything went black.
