as you pull up into the driveway and walk to the door. you notice a piece of paper by the doorbell: "welcome home". as you open the door you're greeted with a card: "follow your nose.." . as you proceed around the corner and into the kitchen. you see that dinner is almost ready. as you sneak a peek, you notice it's your favorite... with a note: "i aim to please". as you walk over to the counter where you see 11 red roses, surrounding a single white rose with a card that reads: "like you, there is always one that stands out in the crowd..". i catch you by surprise, as i sneak up behind you. and whisper "hey" in your ear. you probably were expecting something super romantic, but i pick and choose to tease you with my simplistic greeting.
you put your hands on mine, as i wrap my arms around your waist. i whisper in your ear again: "you hungry?". you nod. i tell you to have a seat at the table. as i pour you some wine. "tell me about your day....how was work?" we talk, until dinner is ready. we eat, we drink, we converse. sounds like the perfect night huh? "you ready for desert?" you smile and give me the *i'm too full* look. but i insist and get up, and return with a plate. i put a plate in front of you and instead of a desert there's yet another note: "not quite edible, but it's still sweet..upstairs is where you'll get your treat". yes, a little corny, but a perfect transition. as you walk upstairs you see a towel with a note on it: "follow the path..to your bath", as you see the rose petals leading into the bathroom. as you walk in you see a bath drawn with candles all around. with a note: "get undressed, get in & relax". you follow directions well, and after about 10 minutes i walk in with another surprise. a big, warm chocolate brownie, chocolate covered strawberries, and a scoop of ice cream. i don't know if your more excited to see me or the brownie. i sit on the edge of the tub and begin to feed you. "it's good?...you like it?"
when you're done, i get your towel...you catch me staring, but you like it. i wrap the towel around you and tell you to turn around. you see a note sitting by the sink: "go lay on the bed..". i can tell by the look on the face you know what's coming. but i surprise you again..when i walk out the bathroom with massage oil in my hand. starting with your feet, i work my way up. slowly. front & back. slowly. i get back on my whispering game.."how does that feel? i know you've had a long day. i just wanna make you feel good". i can tell it's working. as i start adding kisses, caresses, singing along to the music playing. i reach over to the pillow and pull out one final note:
"let's make love.."
