A Special Treat

A Special Treat

"Would you like some more wine?" Kim asked.

"Yes, please."

She poured them both another glass of wine. "What would you like to watch?"

"It doesn't matter. Whatever you want to watch is fine with me."

Kim found 'Ghost' and put it in the player. "I've always loved this movie. Have you ever seen it?"

Andrei nodded. "Survival of the human personality after physical death. A very Western idea."

"Do you always have to turn everything into a philosophical discussion?"

"I was merely commenting on the tendency of certain members of society to hope for an afterlife in which the wrongs of this life will be righted. But we have no guarantee of that, do we?"

"Well, no..." Kim admitted.

"That's why it's so important to live the life we have now as fully as we can." He grinned and pulled Kim close. "And I think five years is long enough to have deprived ourselves. Don't you?"

He began to kiss her with as much passion as ever before, and she responded in like manner as his hands began to roam all over her body. "Shall we adjourn to the bedroom?" he murmured, taking her hand.

In the bedroom, one article of clothing after another was shed, until they both stood naked except for their underwear. "So for you this is the first time in five years, right?" Andrei chuckled sheepishly. "Not that it's any of my business, of course."

"Right."

"You deserve a special treat, then." Gently he picked her up and laid her on the bed, where he began to place light, feathery kisses along her collarbone while his fingers played with her nipples. She moaned involuntarily and arched her back.

"Patience, my dear." Andrei chuckled softly as he took first one, then the other, nipple into his mouth as his fingers moved to stroke the crotch of her increasingly damp panties.

He placed more soft kisses all the way down to her belly button and, just when she thought she could stand it no more, gently peeled her panties down and off. Eagerly she spread her legs for him, and he began to use his fingers, lips and tongue to bring her indescribable sensations. Waves of pleasure shot through her and, remembering that Marina was in the next room, she bit down on her lower lip to keep from crying out his name.

Before she knew it, he'd quickly slipped on a condom and entered her, and a short time later, she heard his ecstatic moan. Then he rolled over and pulled her close to himself. She lay quiet and still, listening to the pounding of his heart.

"I hope it was worth the wait," he said after a few minutes.

"Of course it was. Was it for you?"

"Mm hm." He embraced her. "Now that my Kimberly is in my arms again, I'm a happy man."

"Do you really think we can just pick right back up where we left off?" She raised herself up on her elbows so that she could look into his eyes.

He frowned. "Why not?"

"Well...it's been five years, Andrei. You've changed...I've changed..."

"So what are you saying?" She heard the panicked edge in his voice and immediately felt guilty.

"Only that maybe we should take things slow, at least for now."

He grinned. "So what's the rush?"

Five Years Previously

"Your pregnancy test is positive," the nurse told Kim. Numb with shock, the actress just sat there for a minute, allowing the news to absorb. She'd always been so careful, or at least, she thought she'd been.

The nurse was still talking, going on and on about due dates, appointments, ultrasounds, and prenatal vitamins, but all Kim could think about was Andrei. What would he think? How would he feel? Would he be angry? Happy? She felt a cold sliver of fear go through her body. Would he try to take the baby away from her? Would he flee back to Russia with their child, leaving Kim all alone?

She was shaking as she returned to her small apartment, where she fastened both locks on the door, walked into the bedroom, and curled up into as tight a ball as she could on the bed.

Present Day

As Kim awakened in Andrei's arms, the events of the previous day washed over her. She simply couldn't believe that so much had happened in less than twenty-four hours.

She felt Andrei's fingers stroking her hair and realized that he was awake as well. "Morning," she mumbled.

"Good morning, Kimberly." He kissed the tip of her nose. "Did you sleep well?"

"Mm hm. Did you?"

"Like a baby." Playfully he smacked her bottom. "Sorry to rush off, but I have to get back to the studio soon."

"Don't you even have time for breakfast?"

"As long as it's something quick."

She made a couple of slices of buttered toast for him, dumped shredded wheat into a bowl for herself, and poured coffee for them both. After hurriedly gobbling down the toast and taking a few gulps of coffee, he walked down the hallway and eased Marina's bedroom door open. Kim followed, puzzled. After a moment, he slowly slid the door shut and turned to leave.

"I just wanted one last look at her before I had to go," he whispered to Kim.
