Chapter 21

When I was released from the hospital…Mark immediately took me to the hotel to rest…after about a week of resting…I was starting to go crazy…A few months later, Mark had cut all his long beautiful hair off…He was also still making me crazy about taking it easy…I walked out of the dressing room out into the hallway…Mark was just on his way back from talking to my brothers…and said, "Hey…you're not supposed to be off that couch…" I said, "Oh well…I'm tired of sitting on my ass…the doctor said to take it easy…not pretend I'm a corpse." Mark laughed a little as soon as he was standing in front of me…I wrapped my arms around his waist…and snuggled into his chest.

Mark wrapped his arms around me and said, "By the way…where's your son…" I said, "Oh, he's my son now…you have to take care of the tiny terrorist for a whole week and all of a sudden he's my son…" Mark laughed and said, "Okay, where's our son?" I said, "Where else…your son is a diva man…he's with Amy again." Mark said, "He's got good taste…but his father has better taste." I said, "You bet your ass he does." Mark looked down at me and I smiled at him and we started kissing…

Mark said, "I have an excellent idea." I said, "Let me guess…take a nap before the show right?" Mark said, "God, I love that you can read my mind…" I shook my head no and said, "Pitiful…just pitiful…you know you keep napping like this and everyone will be able to see your age showing…" Mark smacked me on the ass…and said, "Not if I keep you around…" We kissed a couple more times…and then we walked back into his dressing room and closed the door…and shut the lights off…and then Mark laid on the couch…and I laid length wise against him…I was actually laying on him...my back was against the back of the couch…and he had his arm around my waist…I actually slid my hand up his t-shirt and rested it against his chest where I could feel his heart beating…it always put me to sleep…

Mark said, "Damn woman…you're hand is freezing." I said, "Sorry…" Mark said, "I think I can handle it…" And kissed the top of my head…I slid my hand over and pinched his nipple…and Mark said, "Oh…now I know I can." I started giggling and put my hand back over his heart…I said, "Mark." I could tell he was close to falling asleep when he kinds of grunted a "Hmm?" I said, "I love you." Mark said, "I love you too, baby." His arm got tighter around my waist…and we left sleep take over us…

A loud chirping ring woke my ass up…I felt around in the dark and picked up my flip phone…and opened it… and in the worst 'you just woke me up and I'm gonna kill you' voice I said, "Hello?" It was Jeff he said, "So are you ever going to come down for breakfast? God girl…half the morning is gone…it's already 9:30." I said, "Sure…Gimmie 3 seconds." I hung up…and noticed I was back at the hotel…I said, "Shit…I must have needed that nap…I didn't even wake up when Mark brought me back to the hotel last night…" I got up…noticing I had no clothing on…I put Mark's t-shirt on…

I stumbled across the floor to the bathroom, but not before stubbing my toe on one of Mark's boots…I'll remember to fill that with oatmeal later…teach him to pick his shit up…I walked into the bathroom and clicked the light on…turning on the shower…I was scratching my head…when I turned around and came face to face with someone who looked like me…but with black hair and red streaks…I let out a high pitched squeal…and hit the floor…The bathroom door flew open and there was Mark in his levis and with all his hair back…and he said, "You okay darlin'?" I pointed to my hair and said, "Who did this?" Mark said, "I don't know…I'm assuming you did…"

I said, "Okay wait…I laid down to take a nap with you yesterday and my hair was blonde with blue streaks…and this morning I wake up and it's back to black and red…like…the…night…I met you." Mark said, "You mean last night?" I said, "Huh?" Mark said, "I only meet you last night…you do remember me right…you checked me and a friend into this place, then I saw you in the bar…then you gave me an amazing massage last night…and I believe I gave you an orgasm for the massage, okay well several orgasms...if I remember correctly."

I stood up and said, "You'll have to forgive me…I'm having a hard time…It was so real…" I walked past Mark into the bedroom and sat down on the bed…Mark turned around and leaned against the wall and said, "Yea…it felt pretty real to me too…Am I missing something?" I said, "I don't know…" He said, "Are you okay?" I said, "I don't know that either." Mark said, "Okay, now you're scaring me…How old are you again?" I said, "I never said…Quick do me a favor and tell me if 410-231-0023…is your cell-phone number…" Mark said, "Yea…how'd you know that? No one knows my cell number…except a couple of people." I said, "Lucky guess?" Mark put his hands on his hips…it was the serious look and said, "Wanna try the truth." I looked down and noticed my wedding ring was missing…

I smiled and said, "Before you left this morning, you were going to leave a note, a red rose and some money on the pillow…you was going to leave at 5 am…why didn't you?" Mark said, "Wait, how'd you know all of this…I didn't want to just leave with out talking to you about how amazing last night was…I didn't want you to wake up and me not be here…especially after you gave me your virginity last night…that's a huge deal…well at least for most girls it is…I'm assuming it was for you too…" I said, "Yea…it was…you don't know how glad I am, that I gave it to you.."

I walked over to him and stood against him and stood on my tip toes and kissed his lips…he didn't even stop to think about it…and wrapped his arms around me and lifted me up so he could kiss me at his level…and not have to break his neck to reach me. Mark finally just picked me up all the way and carried me over to the bed…and lad down with me again…Mark stopped and looked at me…and said, "Are you okay?" I nodded and said, "Yea…I wasn't going to come up here last night…but I'm really glad I surrendered to my heart and not my mind…" Mark said, "Oh yea…me too…" We started kissing again…

And we lived happily ever after.

The End…
