*taken from an email sent to me this afternoon.
He grasped me firmly but gently just above my elbow and guided me into a room, his room. Then he quietly shut the door and we were alone. He approached me soundlessly, from behind, and spoke in a low, reassuring voice close to my ear. ”Just relax.”
Without warning, he reached down and I felt his strong, calloused hands start at my ankles, gently probing, and moving upward along my calves slowly but steadily. My breath caught in my throat. I knew I should be afraid, but somehow I didn’t care. His touch was so experienced, so sure.
When his hands moved up onto my thighs, I gave a slight shudder, and partly closed my eyes. My pulse was pounding. I felt his knowing fingers caress my abdomen, my ribcage. And then, as he cupped my firm, full breasts in his hands, I inhaled sharply. Probing, searching, knowing what he wanted, he brought his hands to my shoulders, slid them down my tingling spine and into my panties.
Although I knew nothing about this man, I felt oddly trusting and expectant. This is a man, I thought. A man used to taking charge. A man not used to taking `no’ for an answer. A man who would tell me what he wanted. A man who would look into my soul and say…
“Okay, ma’am,” said a voice. “All done.”
My eyes snapped open and he was standing in front of me, smiling, holding out my purse. “You can board your flight now.”
We were so spoilt. When we arrived we found out we had been upgraded from a luxury room to a loft suite. Wow! So much of luxury and spoiling. The bathroom alone was bigger than Aaron’s room. We had a balcony with the most amazing view and a sitting area that played host to a bottle of champagne and six chocolate covered strawberries on our arrival.
We were treated to a romantic turn down service which consisted of long stemmed red roses, white rose petals on the bath matt and beside our bed, candles ready for our bath and our bath robes laid out and ready for us.
Dinner was a five course wonder. We each had a different menu, great for sharing over romantic candle light on the restaurant balcony. We started with sushi followed by lobster and langoustine ravioli. Next was a palette cleansing sorbet. The main course of lamb, potato and veggies was next. We both had lamb but each was prepared differently. This was followed by deep fried camembert and cranberries for Paul and haloumi cheese for me, we swapped that course around. Dessert was a chocolate brownie with ice-cream for Paul and a cheese cake and strawberry compote for me.
We literally rolled into bed.
Breakfast was amazing, a full continental breakfast as well as poached eggs for me and an english breakfast for Paul.
Throughout our stay the staff were amazing, always smiling and ready to help in any way. Definitely five star service!
We were very sad to leave after breakfast but what a treasured memory. If only we could spend every anniversary/Valentines in such opulent surroundings…
