and Laura turns to follow.
And with that Luke and Laura head out the door.
about leaving Phoenix overnight.
*Laura* "I know. We both do."
*Luke* "Plus, we'll only be thirty minutes away, if Kenzie does call."
check in and take their bags up to the suit
Luke had reserved for them a few months ago.
Luke sets the bags down while Laura scopes
out the hotel suit.
*Laura* "Wow! This place is gorgeous!..."
get a good night sleep in there..."
Luke turns to his beautiful wife.
*Luke smiling* "I don't think we'll be doing much sleeping
in that bed...
*Laura chuckling softly* "But we're only here for one night...
*Luke* "Exactly, that's why we gotta make it count, Babe...I know it's not probably what you envisioned as the perfect honeymoon but..."
Laura reaches up and rubs her hand on his forearm,
he seems to want to tell her something but she doesn't
know where he's going with it.
*Laura* "Oh, Luke I'm happy to be here..Even if it's just for one night."
*Luke* "Babe...I've been thinking lately."
Laura's chest rises and falls as she takes a deep breath,
she knew there was something on his mind...
*Laura* "Yeah?...About what?"
Laura takes another deep breath, she did not
*Laura* "Really?!...Don't you think it's too soon? We're just getting back on track with each other. And my last pregnancy....Well you know it was rough...I don't even know if I'm
ready to go through that again. And you hated it, not being able to have sex...I mean look what it did to us, Luke. I...I just... I don't know...This is kinda sudden."
She turns and places her shawl and scarf down on the table.
*Luke* "Yeah but things are different now, Babe...
He quickly walks up behind her.
*Luke* "And I don't want to wait too long.
Plus I know you don't..."
*Laura* "True, but Phoenix is not even potty trained yet..."
*Luke* "He could be..."
*Luke continues* "And I promise I will not be that self centered asshole that gave you a hard time. This time around it'll be different, we're both in a better place now..." *smiling* "...Maybe this time we can try for a girl..."
*Laura turns to face him smiling* "Only a 50/50 chance of that...Baby, are you really sure about this? I'm just kinda in shock that you brought this up...I always figured I would be the one to eventually say something. What's changed your mind about more kids?"
*Laura* "Aric? How does he fit into this?..." *Laura gasps* "Oh my gosh! Is Roxie
pregnant?! I thought they didn't want kids..."
*Luke* "No...no...she's not, at least I don't think so....I was talking with Aric at Benji's bachelor party. He was asking me how I was adjusting to being a father, and if we planned on having any more. And it got me thinking, having Phoenix was the best thing that's happened to me, aside from marrying you. I can't imagine not being a father now, you know I didn't grow up with my Dad, and I want to be there for everything and I don't want him to be an only child like me. I always wanted a brother or sister to play with..."
Laura wraps her arms around his neck and Luke
reciprocates the gesture by pulling her in
tightly against him.
*Laura smiles* "Mmmm...I think I like this new side of you...Mr. Cooper."
*Laura nods* "Mmmmhmmm...but I think I still need some
time to think about this..."
*Luke* "Okay...No pressure, Babe. I promise. Besides I am enjoying
how sexy you look tonight."
*Laura* "We'll never make those dinner reservations if you keep talking like that..."
*Laura turns* "Okay, but before we go lets make a toast, with
this fancy champagne."
Laura grabs the two glasses of champagne and
hands one off to Luke.
Luke takes the glass and starts talking...
*Luke* "To the f*ckin' luckiest man on earth....I Love you, Babe."
*Luke* "I can only hope you feel that way, especially after everything
I put you through."
They finish their glasses of champagne then
out out the door.
Luke and Laura take their seats and she hands
them each a menu.
*Luke* "Sure, two glasses of your best wine."
*Luke* "Thank you."
*Hostess* "Enjoy your evening..."
A short while later their food comes out and they begin to eat.
Enjoying the quiet and each others company.
*Laura* "It's very good...You know I think I could easily make this."
*Luke* "It's like cracking a code for you isn't it?"
*Luke continues* "I can see you're thinking about it with each bite..."
Luke looks down at his bowl to scoop up another bite.
remember the first time we met for lunch at that little bistro..."
Luke looks up at her as she watches him talk.
Laura laughs and nods her mouth full of a bite of food.
*Luke* "Yeah, I was about to go get the waitress..."
*Laura* "I kinda geek out when it comes to recipes...I thought that you
might have been done with our date after dinner..."
*Luke* "I enjoyed it. It was quiet and you were sweet, and once you got
comfortable and started talking, I knew I wanted to see you again. Plus once I
learned you were a fox in bed, well that sealed the deal for me."
Laura runs her foot up the inside of his thigh.
*Laura* "A fox huh?..."
Catching Luke off guard a bit....
*Luke* "A red haired fiery little fox."
Dinner was delicious and a nice slow down to their relaxing evening, things at home have been busy lately and not much time to focus on each other. This night alone together is just what they needed.
their suit for the remainder of their stay.
*Luke* "The night's not over, Babe..."
*Laura* "No it's not...make love to me."
So they take their time and some hours
later they lay in bed,
...still vibrating from cosmic clash of their
bodies melding into one.
*Laura* "Mmmm, So was I a fox?..."
*Luke laughs* "Always, Babe, always..."
*Laura* "So you really want to have another baby?"
*Luke* "Yes, but if you're not ready it's fine, I just want you to know that I'm ready,
all you gotta do is come and get me..."
*Laura* " Because I don't think I'm ready yet..."
*Luke* "No, Babe...it doesn't."
*Luke smiling back at her* "Hell yes, I am..."
