Amelia woke up the next morning and saw a text message from Joe.
“Good morning girl, call me before you open the box since I want to hear your reaction.”
She looked at the foot of her bed but decided the box could wait since food and coffee were her first priority. She sat down at the kitchen table letting her mind wonder what was in the box.
When Amelia was finished eater, she poured herself another cup of coffee and grabbed a knife to open the box with. She sat on the floor in front of the box and called Joe.
“Hi Joe, how are you this morning?”
“I’m good and how are you girl?”
“I’m good thank you.”
“Have you opened the box?”
“Not at all.”
“I’m impressed most people would be jumping at the bit since they’re curious and impatient.”
“I’m curious and have wanted to open it, but I fought hard with my curiosity.”
“I’m impressed, so go ahead and open it.”
Amelia took the knife and opened the box. She removed the tissue paper that covered the item. As she peeked into the box, she saw the most beautiful lingerie set since it was black and red. She looked at the size to make sure it would fit her.
“What do you think girl?”
“It’s beautiful, thank you. How did you know my size?”
“I just took a guess, am I right or wrong?”
“You were close, but unfortunately they’re too small.”
“I’m sorry to hear that girl. Well bring them with you and we can return them.”
“You didn’t have to buy me anything.”
“I know, but I wanted to. I’ll see you at around 4 so we can go to dinner. Enjoy your day girl and I can’t wait to see you.”
Amelia hung up the phone and finished up her coffee. She put the lingerie back in the box and put it with her purse. She ironed her blouse and laid her skirt on the bed. She spent her day relaxing in front of the TV watching a movie that she had seen so many times that she had the whole thing memorized. As the time was getting closer, Amelia was excited since she like spending time with Joe.
She jumped in the shower and took her time getting prepared since she wanted to be ready for anything. She figured that she would stop and buy a pack of condoms just in case things went that route. She smiled at the thought of having sex with Joe and how it would feel. Amelia got out of the shower and wrapped a towel around herself. She went and got dressed. When she was ready, she grabbed everything and headed to her car. Before she drove away she made sure she had her purse, cell phone and the box. She then made the long drive to Joe’s place.
When Amelia was almost at Joe’s place, she stopped off at a drug store to buy a pack of condoms. Before she pulled out of the parking lot she called Joe to let him know that she was close. She parked in front of Joe’s house and saw his truck and SUV in the drive way. All she could think was, “Men and their toys.” Amelia looked in the mirror to make sure she looked okay. She then grabbed the box from the passenger seat and head up the walk to Joe’s front door. She rang the doorbell. When Joe opened the door, he had a huge smile on his face. He had on a steel grey dress shirt, black dress pants and a black sports jacket.
“Hi girl, wow you look sexy. Come on in.”
Amelia walked into Joe’s house and she noticed that it was nicely decorated.
“Nice house you have, where can I put this?”
“Thank you and I can take it. I’m sorry about this, but like I said I saw this and thought of you.”
Joe took the box from Amelia and put it on the dining room table.
“I appreciate the gesture and I was surprised.”
“I don’t usually buy gifts for a girl unless she’s mine. It just felt right to buy it for you though. Even if you don’t become mine I would love to spoil you once in a while.”
Amelia smiled up at Joe and leaned up and kissed his cheek. He wrapped his arms around her and kissed her.
“We better go or we won’t make it to dinner.”
Joe grabbed his car keys. He opened the door for Amelia. When she was in, he closed the door. He got in and drove to the restaurant. He opened the door for Amelia and then took her hand. As they waited for their table, he wrapped his arms around her waist.
"You are so beautiful and I don’t know what I did to have dinner with you.”
“I could say the same thing about you mister. A week ago I didn’t care if I found someone again, but then I met you and that all changed.”
“I wonder why.”
“I don’t know, but I’m glad that it did.”
