Cori smiled softly as she listened to him. [b "What's the plan for after graduation?"] she asked. [b "Will we just go back to White Peak?"] She was so thankful that she and Travis had been given this second chance with their love story, and she was very excited to see where life would take them. But a small part of her was still terrified that it would just turn out like last time. She didn't think it would ever go away.
She looked at Travis as he told her about a steakhouse that had a club bar built into it. [b "That's sounds amazing actually..... I call first dibs on the shower!"] she said as she leaned over and kissed his cheek before she grabbed her things that she would need.
It had been such a long time since she an Travis had went on an actual date... Back in high school? It had to be. She was giddy with excitement, but she had butterflies in her stomach as well.
[b "Think we both miss those day, Cori. But we have the chance now to make new memories and to have new adventures."] Those words were thoughtful as they had been spoken. But they had been totally meant. He was looking at this as a chance for them to start again and to have a second chance.
The next few days would belong to them and them alone. There would be no friends and family to worry about. No classes for him since graduation was JUST around the corner. It would just be her and him and the freedom to do what they wanted. [b "It means a lot to hear you say that. But so much more that you will be there. Wouldn't want to share the moment with anyone but you, darlin'.."] The man said as his eyes met hers
Then she mentioned the dancing and asked about a small country club. Truth be told when he first got here, Travus had spent every weekend there. [b "I know of a place. It serves as both a steak house and a dance club/bar. Would you like to kill two birds with one stone?"] He asked as his head tilted.
Cori just grinned as she looked at Travis. [b "My Momma was waiting on me on the front porch when I finally went home the next day. She wanted to know every detail, and then my Daddy gave me the earful."] she said. [b "I miss those days, Travis. Things were a lot easier back then... Much simplier it seems."]
She was so excited to have the next few days with just Travis. They didn't have to worry about anything or anyone except themselves. [b "I'm so proud of you. I just want you to know that. You've had to face so much, and yet in a few days, you're graduating from Law School.."]
She pulled away from him long enough to turn so she was facing him. [b "Dinner... And then can we go dancing? There has to be a little country bar around here somewhere, right?"] she asked [b "I really want to go dancin' Travis."]
Okay so maybe she wasn't better in her direction sense than he was. Travis had known back then where they were going but didn't speak up. He had wanted the time with her and the adventure. [b "Mama didn't want me upstairs that night. But when she and dad were asleep I did sneak back up to be with you. Also got an earful from my mama when you went home too."] The man said with a chuckle. He did always love their fonder nemories like times they had gotten lost.
His arms only tightened around her as she shivered. [b "Tellin' the truth, ma'am. No sweet talkin' here."] He whispered, breath once more going over her ear. The man was doing this on purpose. [b "So am I. Means we're free to be us without having to think of covers."]
Travis was nervous but at the same time excited. He was thinking of all this as a new start for them. [b "I believe I owe you that dinner?"] He asked as he had FINALLY let her go.
Cori grinned when she heard Travis say that she was a better navigator. [b "Is now a bad time to reminise on that time that your daddy sent us down to White Creek but we ended up in Haven? Six hours from home."] she said with a small grin. [b "We were dead tired by the end of that night, your momma wouldn't let me drive home. You had to sleep on the couch... Thought I think I remember that you snuck upstairs?"]
She shivered slightly when she felt his arms wrap around her waist, his breath on her ear. [b "Aren't you just a sweet talker?"] she asked. [b "I'm so glad that we finally have some alone time... We don't have to worry about anyone catching us here."]
It partially made her nervous, knowing that for the next few days she and Travis would be sharing a bed... but they were adults now. It would be fine.
Travis had always thought teaching would be the better career for her. She had always been quite the charmer with children and they looked up to her. A magic she had about her. And he had told her so many times back in high school. But he doubted she remembered it.
[b "Nah I've got it. Besides you're the better navigater and will be able to find the room better."] He teased with a chuckle, but did not relinquish her bag. And when she began down the hall and found their door, a smile was on his lips. It was ALMOST like old times.
Slowly he followed her into the room and kicked the door shut behind him as he set both their bags on the floor by the dresser. It really was a cute room. Simple with the red drapes and the green floral quilts on the king sized bed. But it was fitting. There were even paintings on the light peach walls to try and liven the place up. [b "Cute, but not as cute as you."] Travis said as he soon was behind her with his arms about her waist and his chin resting on her shoulder.
[b "Teaching was my calling though. I'm so thankful and blessed to be apart of my student's lives... I can make a difference with them."] she explained. She blushed when she felt his lips on her forehead. [b "I'm blessed to have you in my life again.."]
She giggled slightly when he said he hadn't told his Mother about this hotel. [b "Well that's good. We don't have to worry about anyone catching us being all lovey dovey here."] she said. She took the key from him and slung her purse over her shoulder. [b "Honey, I can take my bag. You don't have to carry it."] she said as she looked at the sign, figuring out which way their room was.
[b "Here we are!"] she said as seen their room number on a door. She unlocked the door and headed in. [b "Look how cute and quaint this is!"] she said.
[b "I remember you once said you had been caught between your two passions.. Teachin' and being a florist. But I'm glad teaching happened to win. I bet you're amazin' at what you do."] He whispered as he kissed her forehead and soon walked into the hotel with her, his hand gently taking hers. He had as he said chosen this one as it gave off a homey feel and was a cute little place.
It has bot taken long to check them in and for him to walk with her down a hallway with flowers in vases and paintings upon the wall of all sorts of natural settings. [b "You know I didn't tell my mama about this place. Figured it would be nice for us to be here by ourselves. But I did tell 'em about another hotel that was close to campus."] He said with a chuckle as he handed her the key to their room
Cori couldn't help but grin as she listened to Travis. She truly believed that fate and luck might just be on their side this time. [b "I would love for you to go back with me in the fall..."] she said soflty. She couldn't help herself, she leaned over and softly kissed his cheek. [b "You're the best."]
She nodded as she got out of his Jeep and looked around. [b "You know, If I hadn't been a good student teacher, and loved kids as much as I do, I would've totally became a florist."] She loved Flowers! Her apartment in Seattle was full of them.
She followed him inside and looked around as they walked over to the check in counter. This was definitely a homey hotel, but it was so cute at the same time. They had a rustic chic thing going on, and it worked. [b "Is you Mother and all of them staying at this one as well?"]
He wasn't sure if she would get the meaning behind his words. But as soon as she spoke and had peeked up at him, Travis knew that Cori understood what he was thinking. [b "Of course I would make the move. I told you this time I don't intend on letting go and I want to work to keep us..."] He said as his hand on her knee gave a squeeze.
It was maybe another hour or two before they finally were pulling up to the hotel. It was close to the campus and had a homey feel to it. The front was decorated almost like a garden would be and there were a multitude of flowers. [b "I chose this one because it is a smaller and more homey hotel. Also like you pointed out all the flowers. Actually the flowers were the draw because I know you love them."] He said before he got out and went around to open her door for her and then grab both their bags.
Cori glanced over at Travis when she felt him squeeze her hand once again. [b "I'm sure that it's a very big decision."] she said. She had glanced down to her phone, her Mother had already texted her, wondering if they were close yet. She just chuckled.
Her head popped up when he mentioned Seattle. [b "Seattle?"] she said [b "You would move to Seattle for me? For us.."] She could feel the silent tears fall down her face. She quickly wiped them away.
A while later, they were finally pulling up to what seemed like their hotel. It was close to Campus. [b "This is pretty. Look at all the flowers."]
Maybe he should have thought more about the words that Cori had just spoken. The truth of the matter was their mommas were mighty clever and had a way of finding things out. Hell they tried to keep the fact that they sneaked out on school nights a secret and yet their mothers would be there to scold them saying how they were lucky they were good students. It had always annoyed him to some extent but on the other hand had always amused him too. So thinking back to their highschool days, Travis figured that Cori was right. But he still didn't want to be telling them just yet.
His hand had again squeezed the young woman's and he shook his head slowly. [b "Nah, haven't much thought about the where. I was more focused on the present and tryin' to finish my degree. You know see where life took me. But now I'm thinkin' maybe for Seattle."] And his reason for the change in heart or thpught was of course because of her. If they were going to be trying this all again, Travis wanted a way they could be close and not have to keep everything distance.
[b "I'm sure he remembers his last beating. But I'm older now, maybe evena tiny bit stronger. Plus, I'm sure he remembers how mad you were at him for upsetting me."] she explained. [b "We're worried about everyone finding out and telling them, but honestly. They might already know, Travis. They are probably just waiting for us to tell them, so then they cann all tell us its about time."] she said. [b "Have you thought about the looks that our Momma's are gonna give us?"]
She grinned when Travis agreed with their date date. [b "I'm so excited! We're finally going to get some alone time."] she said. She blushed when she felt Travis softly kiss her forehead. [b "Mhm."]
She nodded when he answered her question about sneakng off to Seattle. [b "Have you thought about where you want to practice?"]
[b "He's not said to mama or anyone because we outright told him 'no'. Besides he still remembers his last beating and knows you can throw a good punch."] He said, chuckling. [b "But being serious he knows this isn't his to tell. ONCE in awhile he can reapect boundaries."] And his hand squeezed hers again.
When she spoke, answering his question Travis couldn't help grinning. It seemed she was still very much the same as she had been and still loved food. Which was good for him because he still loved food and he also knew of a good little restaraunt that had become a favourite of his. [b "A date date with the dressing up sounds good to me. We haven't had the time and I want this to be special."] He said as he leaned over and kissed her head.
He was a little taken offguard when she asked him to "come to her neck of the woods". But when he thought of it it made sense. She was coming to his and if they wanted to try and make this work he should see hers as well. [b "After we tell everyone I would love to sneak off with you. See how your life has been."]
Cori looked over at Travis and smiled softly. [b "Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that we get to stay in our own little bubble, and that we get to sneak around like we did when we were teenagers, but gosh. We're gonna have to tell them all eventually. I guess I forgot how nosey country women were."] she said. [b "I"m very surprised that John hasn't spilled our beans yet."] she explained. She looked down when he took her hand and she couldn't help but blush.
[b "A dinner date sounds absolutely amazing. We can get all dressed up."] she said. [b "We haven't had a date date in a long time... Anywhere sounds amazing, as long as I can get steak."] she said. Cori always had a hearty appetite, but you could never tell it. [b "I was thinking. Maybe in a few weeks, maybe before we tell everyone, what would you think about sneaking off to Seattle? I can show you my neck of the woods?"]
