[Authors note: I have been working on this story for a long time and is a follow-up to “The Hotel.” Of all the stories I have written, this is the one that I have been asked: “what happened next?” It has been taken me some time to write this and get it just right so I hope you like. This is the first time I have gone back to the same characters it was a challenge to think of where these two would be after the eventful meeting at the hotel. I enjoyed writing this one because of that challenge so I hope you like it.]
I spend the next two weeks at the Chateau St Gerlach with Katy, it is a phenomenally, mind blowing time. We spend the entire time with each other, and it helped me move on. We talked for hours about getting to know everything about each other and by the end of the holiday it is devastating to leave her.
Our flights home are within an hour of each other so we have our final goodbye in the airport. Before Katy leaves she kisses me passionately and whispers in my ear “I think I could actually fall for you,” then she ran off to board the plane before I could respond.
I stood by her departure gate and watched her flight take off with a tear in my eye. As the flight disappeared, I said “I feel the same way. Goodbye, Katy.”
We agreed that we would just have the two weeks together and then move on with our lives, I really wish I hadn’t agreed to that.
The flight home was quick but rough hitting turbulence about half way through the journey.
All I could think about during the entire time was Katy, and how much I already missed her. I really wish we hadn’t agreed to not to keep in contact but what’s done is done. We thought it would be easier this way, but right now I don’t believe it.
Halfway through the flight, I realise I should be more worrying about what will happen when I get home, as opposed to missing Katy so much, but honestly, I don’t care. In the last two weeks, I have had the best time of my life.
I don’t care as much about what happened before I’m over it, she left me at the altar, fine that happened but now I think it’s the best thing could have happened to me.
When I eventually get home, I just go straight to bed, exhausted after the travelling and the emotional upheaval that I’ve been through in the last month. Katy managed to help me in forgetting all of that but now that I am home it’s all flooding back, but it’s worse now because foremost in my thoughts is Katy.
I wake up a few hours later, and it’s still dark outside but I decide to get up, and I make a cup of tea then head back up to unpack.
It doesn’t take long, and I’ve emptied my case and put everything away. I pick up the case to put it on top of the wardrobe, and an envelope falls out of one of the pockets and drifts to the floor.
I reach down to see what it is and see my name written on the front. When I examine the envelope, I can smell Katy’s perfume coming off it. I hastily rip it open to see what’s inside.
There is a single handwritten letter on the inside of it.
Meeting you has been the best time of my life, you mean so much to me and I don’t want to let you go.
I know that we agreed that after these two weeks that would be it, we wouldn’t see each other again, but I can’t live with that. I feel like I could actually fall for you.
I know that you have a lot to deal with due to what has happened, but I want you in my life.
As I’m writing this letter, you are sleeping next to me, and I have never felt so safe and cared for in my life.
I have put my contact details at the bottom of this letter If you want to see me again use them if not then ill understand.
I want to say this to you in person, but I am afraid of you not being on the same page as I am.
If I don’t have the courage to say this to you in person, then this is why I’m writing this letter.
I hope to hear from you soon if not have a good life.
I have to read the letter several time for it to sink in. This is the lifeline I have been hoping for. At the bottom is a Skype address, I run to my computer and type in the address I want to call her right now, but I’m scared. My hand hovers over the call button for what seems like and eternity until finally I hit send.
The call starts to connect, and I hold my breath praying that this is the right thing to do when the screen connects, and I see her beautiful face smiling at me. “Hi,” she says to me, and I just smile back.
We carried on a long-distance relationship from that moment, we would talk every day about anything and everything, and I fall in love with her hard. The time difference is a real challenge, but we manage to work it out.
But eventually, it became too much for both of us that we couldn’t be physically together again so one day Katy broke it off and said if we couldn’t actually be together then it’s not worth it, it hurts too much.
Losing Katy is horrible. I think about her all the time I miss her every day. Two months go past and the entire time I’m making plans to get her back.
I think about what to do, and finally, I just decide to hell with it. Nothing is keeping me here. I can work from anywhere in the world so I book my tickets and head to the airport.
The flight takes eight hours and the whole time I think about how I’m going to approach her.
We have had no contact since she broke up with me so I need to play this carefully I don’t know if she will be happy to see me or not but I have to know one way or another.
When I arrive at the airport, I hire a car and head straight to her university I know that she will be coming out of class in three hours, and it will give me time to get there and find her.
The wait is nerve wracking all I can do is think about every possible scenario of what’s going to happen when I see her.
I check my watch and see that Katy should be coming out in ten minutes, I get out of the car and start walking towards the campus.
People start pouring out, and my stomach starts doing somersaults, I have never been this nervous in my life.
I’m about to lose my nerve and give up when I see her walking out of the building. She looks even more beautiful than the last time I saw her. Her dark hair is longer now, being held up in a ponytail and she is wearing a light knee-length white cotton dress that shows off her figure, hugging her exquisite curves.
I want to run to her but she is with some friends, and I don’t know if I can do this.
‘This was a terrible idea. She looks happy, what the hell was I thinking flying over here she’s moved on, and you are a complete idiot.’ I think to myself.
I turn to head back to the car when I hear my name being shouted in a confused voice.
I freeze and turn back to Katy frozen in place, staring at me in disbelief. My mind goes completely blank, I had a full speech planned out for what I was going to say to her but all I can say is “Hi.”
Hearing my voice seems to snap her out of the confusion that has come over her, and she drops everything she is carrying and runs towards me and jumps onto me wrapping her arms around me and kissing me hard and full of passion.
I can’t help but get carried away, and I hug her as hard as I can pulling her as close to me as possible as I kiss her back.
After a moment she stops kissing me, and I try to catch my breath. I let her go, and she looks up at me “What are you doing here?” she asks
“What do you think? I’m here for you.” I reply “These last two months have been unbearable I had to see you.” Still holding her in my arms.
“I know.” She replies looking at me, tears in her eyes. “I thought I could just break it off, and that would be it but I couldn’t, I’ve thought about you every day.”
I pull her closer to me again, refusing to let her go in case I wake up, and this has all been a dream. We stand like that for a few minutes neither of us daring to move. All I can think is that I don’t want this moment to end.
It was one of those perfect moments that seldom happen in life, where everything slows down, and it feels like you live an eternity in one moment.
I was drawn out of that moment by Katy saying breathlessly in my ear “John, I can’t breathe.”
I ease off my grip on her, lowering her to the ground “Sorry,” I say embarrassed “I guess I just didn’t want to let you go again.”
Katy smiled at me, reaching up placing her palm on my cheek “I know the feeling.” She says with a twinkle in her eye.
Before I could investigate the twinkle, further someone shouts Katy’s name. “Crap, I completely forgot where I was.” She says, flushing with embarrassment “That’s my friend Steph,” she looks at her and waves her over. “She must be freaking out wondering what the hell is going on.”
“Does she know who I am?” I ask.
“Well not on sight, but I told her about you. Come and say hello.” She grabs my hand and starts walking me over to meet Steph.
As we approach she looks at me suspiciously, I have been told that I can appear a little intimidating at first because of my height. She seems worried about her friend.
“Steph,” Katy says smiling.
“Katy? What’s going on here? Who is this?” she asks warily, as she gives me a look that is slightly unsettling.
“Steph, this is John,” Katy says as she looks at Stephanie while holding onto my arm. She gives it a squeeze to reassure me. Steph looks at me with a combination of wonder and confusion. Katy notices the look on her face and says “Yes, That John.”
“You’re kidding me?” Steph says flabbergasted. “How?”
I take a step forward and offering my hand “Hi Steph, I’m John, it’s a pleasure to meet you.” She shakes my hand as she just stares at me intently.
“Steph! You are staring.”Katy hisses at her.
This seems to snap Steph out of her revery “Gosh I’m sorry.” She says blushing “It’s just that you are real.”
I let out a chuckle at this “Well yeah, I’m real or at least I was last time I checked.”
Katy smiles at me, giving my hand a reassuring squeeze. Steph gives a laugh at this “My God she told me you were tall, but this is ridiculous.”
At this the tension goes out of the atmosphere, we stand and talk for a few minutes when Katy asks me “How long are you here for and where are you staying?”
I look at her, and it suddenly dawns on me that in my haste to get here to see her, then the panic that she wouldn’t want to see me, I completely forgot to arrange a place to stay. “Umm, I didn’t actually think about that,” I say embarrassed “I should probably find a hotel. You know of any in the area?”
Both of them just look at me for a moment then start laughing.
We go for lunch, and I get hit with a barrage of questions, mostly from Steph, Katy mostly just sits there holding my hand, running her finger across the back of it. It feels good, it’s almost as if she is afraid that if she lets me go, I’ll disappear.
“If you will excuse me for a moment,” Steph says as she stands up from the table.
“Sure no problem,” I say.
As she walks off in the direction of the bathroom, Katy leans over to kiss me tenderly and lets out a laugh “I really can’t believe you are actually here. I mean you are really here. I have thought about this every single day since we said goodbye at the airport, and now you’re actually here. Please tell me that this isn’t some cruel dream.”
I wrap my arms around her pulling her close in for a hug as I kiss the top of her head gently and whisper “It’s not a dream Katy, I’m really here, and I’m here for you, for as long as you want me to be here.”
“You mean that?” she asks.
“Yes, well except I have to go home in ninety days.”
“I’m only allowed in the country for ninety days at a time. Immigration rules.”
“let’s not think about that right now.” I let go of her as she looks up at me I can see tears in her eyes, but they are of happiness. I smile at her
We sit and chat again for a few minutes making plans for the rest of the day and trying to find me a hotel to stay in that won’t bankrupt me when Steph comes back to the table.
“So what did I miss?” she asks
“Not much, So did I pass the test?” I asked Steph as she sat down.
She looks at me with a quizzical look on her face. “What test?” she asked innocently.
“Oh come on,” I say with a chuckle “a random guy that you have never met appears out of nowhere, and your best friend practically throws herself at him, and you’re not worried that I might be a psychopath or something? I know that’s what all the questions were for you were trying to figure out what kind of person I am.”
Steph and Katy look at each other in shock at what I had just said: “Is that what you were doing?” Katy asked her.
Steph’s face started to burn scarlet with embarrassment and in a small voice she replied: “Well yes, of course, it was.” She looked at me with concern in her eyes, as if wondering how I’m going to react. “How did you know that’s what I was doing?”
I think for a moment on how to answer this, before deciding that honesty is the best way forward “Well it’s simple really, I would be doing the exact same thing in your position.”
Steph smiles at me “Then yes you have passed. I thought I was being very subtle with what I was doing I didn’t think you would’ve picked up on that.”
Katy looks at me “How did you figure that out? I had no clue what was going on and I’ve known her all my life.”
“I’m good at reading people, and I could tell that’s what was going on. Anyway enough on that, I’m glad I’ve passed the test. Now I just need to figure out where I’m going to be staying, I didn’t exactly plan this out very well I haven’t booked a hotel or anything. I really should have thought this through, but I wasn’t sure how you would react.” I say looking at Katy, “I thought I might be heading straight home. So you got any suggestions on where I can stay?”
We left the restaurant, and they took me on a tour of the town, Steph left after about an hour saying she was pleased to have met me and that I was a lucky man to have met Katy, I couldn’t agree more with that sentiment.
Katy and I walked around for a while just talking about nothing in particular, just small talk.
“So how long are you here for?” Katy asks, I can tell by the concern in her voice that she has wanted to ask that question all day.
“Well, that’s up to you.” I say “I can work from anywhere so I’ll be here for as long as you want me here, although like i said earlier I will have to leave after ninety days, I’m only here on a tourist visa.”
“So you mean you won’t be leaving in a few days?”
“Only if you want me to.”
Without saying anything, she turns to face me, reaching her hand up and around my neck, pulling me down towards her, kissing me tenderly.
I wrap my arms around her, pulling her close to me so that her entire body is pressed against mine. We stand there for a few moments just feeling the closeness that we have both been missing since we said goodbye to each other at the airport, it feels good to have her back in my arms with no interruptions.
“You know, before I left, I was looking at your picture from the night that we met and knew there was nothing I could do other than fall in love with you.” I say to her “There is no way I could have spent the rest of my life without having taken the chance to come here to be with you.”
“I’ve missed you so much, John.” She whispers “letting you go was the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and it almost destroyed me. Every day since then I have spent virtually every minute thinking about you.”
I lean down and kiss her again. The world seems to stop at that moment, as the two of us seemingly melt into each other.
After a few minutes of this, we break the kiss, and I say “I still need to find a hotel.”
Katy flashed me a wolfish smile “No, no you really don’t.”
Those were the words that I had been hoping to hear. She takes my by the hand and leads me back to my rental car. I start driving as she punches her address into the sat nav, so I know where to go.
“It will take about twenty minutes to get there,” Katy says. “But I’m not willing to wait that long. Keep driving.” She reaches over taking hold of my belt, unbuckling it and starts to unfasten my jeans
“What are you doing?” I ask her
“Just keep your eyes on the road.” She scolds me as she reaches inside my jeans and takes out my swiftly hardening cock.
Before I can say anything, she takes the full thing into her mouth and starts running her tongue along the length of my shaft and swirling it around the head.
I let out a groan as she does this and finds it difficult to concentrate on driving. Katy’s head starts bobbing up and down faster in my crotch. I rest one hand on the back of her neck, trying to control the speed that she’s sucking on my erect cock.
“Katy,” I manage to gasp out. I am trying to say that I’m going to cum, but I don’t get the chance as she redoubles her efforts and I explode into her mouth.
She keeps on sucking on my cock and swallows every last drop of my cum.
I have to pull over to the side of the road to catch my breath and Katy still has my cock in her mouth and is licking it clean.
She finally lets my cock fall out of her mouth with a wet slap and smiles at me. I reach my hand out, looping it around her neck and pull her close to me, kissing her hard.
I can taste myself on her lips as the kiss deepens and her tongue starts to probe my mouth.
This is almost too much to bare, and I can feel myself getting hard again.
She breaks the kiss and in a low husky voice, she practically growls “Drive. I need you inside me.”
“You don’t have to ask me twice,” I say as I start the car again and pull out into the road, following the sat navs directions to her house.
As I drive, Katy puts her foot up on the dashboard and lifts up the hem of her dress revealing a red thong, she pulls it aside and starts to play with her clit as I drive. She lets out a soft moan and takes my hand off the steering wheel and rests in on her hot wet pussy, I slip in a finger and start to slowly tease her.
She reaches up and lowers the top of her dress pulling out one of her breasts and roughly squeezes her nipple while looking at me.
I can hear her breathing getting heavier as I slide my finger in and out of her wet pussy, she moans loudly as hit home and starts moving faster and faster. I use my thumb to start flicking her clit as I drive
It’s not easy to drive as I’m doing this to her and I just barely manage to keep the car on the road, the sat nav announces that we have reached out destination, but I don’t let up on Katy. I start fingering her harder now that I don’t have to worry about crashing.
She lets out a scream as I hit her g-spot and this sends her over the edge, and she has her first orgasm of the night. Her muscles are spasming wildly around my middle finger as I apply more pressure to her clit.
“God damn.” She pants “How the fuck do you do that to me?” she asks as the orgasm subsides.
Katy doesn’t give me a chance to respond as she jumps out of the car and runs towards her front door.
I tuck my cock back into my jeans, carefully zipping them back up and chase after her.
When I get to the door she is fumbling in her purse for her keys, after a moment she finds them and hurriedly opens the door. She reaches back and pulls me inside.
As soon as the door closes she jumps up on me, wrapping her legs around my waist and her arms around my neck. I kiss her hard and slam her back into the wall. She starts running her hands through my hair, kissing me harder and with more passion.
We keep going like this for a few minutes when she tries to push me back to let her up off the wall. I back of slightly and she jumps down and starts fumbling with my belt, almost frantically clawing at it trying to get it off and pull down my jeans.
I help her by unbuttoning them and letting them fall to the floor. She pulls my boxers down and throws them to the side.
Now it’s my turn, I reach down and take the hem of her dress, lifting it up I’ve her head revealing her in all her glory. I look at her for a few seconds, and she reaches out and starts to stroke my cock again, making it harder than it already was.
She looks me in the eye, with a look of pure lust in her eyes. I grab hold of her hips and rip the thong clean off her, completely shredding it. I pick her up, slamming her against the wall roughly, she practically snarls at me “Fuck me, fuck me hard.”
She wraps her legs around my waist as she says this and my rigid cock slides into her, tight, wet hole. “Oh fuck.” We both growl at the swift movement. Being back inside of Katy is like being in heaven. She has the perfect body, her pussy is so tight as if made for me and me alone.
Pinned against the wall, I start to pound her hard, giving no mercy to the endless onslaught of pleasure we are both feeling. Katy is so horny that she can barely control herself, and she lets out squeals of ecstasy, she reaches up and grabs hold of the two coat hooks above her head. She starts to pull herself up and down on them, I can see the strain and the sweat on her body as she bucks wildly on my cock as I hold her in place against the wall.
“Oh god, oh god, oh god.” She screams as the orgasm rolls through her. I can feel the muscles contracting rapidly around my cock, and she feels so good
Letting go of the coat hooks she grabs my head thrusts my face down into her breasts, I kiss and lick them all over as I keep on pounding away at her.
She lets out another scream, as she digs her nails into my back.
I can’t take much more of this, and I let out a scream and unload into her. My legs buckle, and I barely manage to keep us both pinned to the wall as I cum deep inside her.
We lean against each other and the wall painting. I let Katy go and lower her to the floor. I slide down and sit next to her, she rests her head on my shoulder and says “My God I’ve missed you.” She says “But I think I’ve forgotten how to work my legs now, they feel like rubber.”
I let out a laugh, kiss her on the forehead “Same here, I’ve missed you more than you can know
We sit there for few moments holding each other before we are able to move again. When the feeling finally returns to Katy’s legs, she gets up and offers me her hand to help me up.
I take her hand but don’t get up instead I take her hand and pull her towards me. I grab her leg, hooking it over my shoulder and bury my face in her pussy.
“You bastard,” she says as I start sucking on her already swollen clit. I flick my tongue over it rapidly she screams again as another orgasm explodes in waves through her body.
After it subsides, I let go of her leg, and she stumbles backwards, I lunge forward and back onto my feet grabbing her before her legs come out from under her.
I scoop her up in my arms “You complete and utter bastard.” She says again, but she can’t keep the smile off of her face.
I lean down and kiss her. “I’ve wanted to do that from the moment I saw you,” I say to her once we break the kiss. “Katy, I love you.”
“I love you too, John.” She says as she reaches up and rests her hand on my cheek.
I smile and carry her through the house and to the bedroom. I lay her down on the bed, and she starts to shiver from the cold. I climb under the covers with her and pull her close to me.
It doesn’t take long before we are both sleeping in each other’s arms.
I spend the next three months living with Katy before I have to go home. Saying goodbye at the airport was just as bad as the last time but at least, this time, we both knew it wasn’t for the last time. I’d be back in a few weeks.
The flight home is torture, and I miss her almost from the moment I step through security.
The plane lands and I jump in a taxi back to my home, with a side trip to the shop for bread and milk. When I get home, I pay the driver and head up the stairs to my front door. Only to find Katy sitting there waiting on me.
“What? How?” is all I manage to sputter out.
“I couldn’t wait four weeks to see you again.” She says with a smile.
And I just smile at her.
A year after I got home to find Katy sitting on my door step I’m back standing in the church on my wedding day waiting for the love of my life to come. I check my watch and see that she is ten minutes late. I start getting a horrible feeling of déjà vu.
I’m about to start freaking out when suddenly the music starts up and I turn to see Katy walking down the aisle. It is the most beautiful sight I have ever seen. She looks so beautiful in her dress that I can help but start to cry.
We go through with the ceremony, and I make her my wife. After the reception, we head off to the airport on our honeymoon, back to where it all began at the Chateau St Gerlach.
