Oh, I had not read it, so sweet and endearing, these days I was reading a book of poems and remembered St. Berry , I think I am 'hooked' on these two (laughs).
''He may be looking at your photos right now. Why not? It was a long time. Details were lost. So what? He may do all the things you do, hidden. Without a trace or clues. He may go hand in ... scruffy beard made and feel the nostalgia as you like it. Or browse paths that were his, trying not to let you dispel the memories. The good. By choice or fate, no matter, he can think of you. Every day. And still prefer the silence. It can reread your tickets, look for the smell other smells. He can hear your music, find your voice in other voices. Who we lack hits the heart like a sudden wind entering through the open window. There is no escape! Perhaps he realizes that you are missing. And difference. Somehow, on a cold night. You do not know. It can be the guy who will one dreamed summer in Paris. Maybe he comes back. Or not.'' Caio Fernando Abreu

That little nugget of St Berry sweetness was almost as good as taking a mini-break myself. Nice work!

LOVE the fluff. I could picture every scene so clearly. Jesse in his Armani sunglasses, bare-chested, and lounging on the beach *thud.*
Another fantastic one-shot :) (I hope to see an update of Caught In Your Bad Romance soon too!)

It sounds like you had a fabulous time, and came back inspired. (So much the better!)
This was such a lovely, fluffy piece. I could see them both being so driven that they'd rarely take time off, and that the pressure of their lives could easily build to such a point that they'd need to get away before it exploded.
That description of the sand and sea had me wanting to take a vacation of my own! I like the idea that Rachel used to swim, and I could picture her being very graceful in the water. Love the bit about Jesse not appearing to notice her approach, but being ultra aware of her presence all the same. Also love his little pet names for her in this. (I have parts of me that are very 'cherry tomato-ish' right now, so I can relate.)
I totally buy Rachel being the driving force behind this. She can be very stubborn, and I agree that Jesse would have learned a long time ago when to back off if he didn't want a fight.
I like the parallel between this and his last beach vacation. I expect that this one will go a long way towards erasing those memories - or at least replacing them with much better ones.
Love their banter, and its sexually charged nature. But Jesse, naturally modest? Hmm, I think not, LOL!
This is exactly how I see them - still madly in love, passionate about each other, and sharing a full and rich life together. Thanks for the delightful St. Berry interlude. :)

This is very sweet. I love little fluffy moments like this between them! Would it be too much if I asked for an outside observer's views on the scene after Rachel's out of the water?

If this story was a "thank you" to the many well deserved reviews you received when away, I'd say an essay of praise is in order. I can never get enough of your St. Berry's! You're so, so talented and this story was absolutely precious. Thank you for sharing. I look forward to more from you!
