Lexia hadn't exactly met anyone like Chad before. He made her feel uncomfortable and it was clear to her that he didn't understand boundaries. He had cheated on his wife. Of course she knew that James had cheated on Lexia but that was completely different and she knew for certain that was behind them and he would never do that again. Chad, however, seemed to repeat the same mistakes with different women and he was even going as far as flirting with women while he was on a retreat in an attempt to fix their marriage. She thought that Maryanne deserved better and his actions now only confirmed that she did.
Lexia bit down on her lip as Chad spoke. She didn't know what to do with herself in that moment, feeling completely uncomfortable. [b "No as a matter of fact I don't. I love my husband and he loves me equally. I already know what he was thinking because we've spent the week talking about it and working through our problems. I asked you to get your hands off me."] Instead, he started to move his hand further up her thigh and the only thing stopping her from standing and backing away from him was the fact that he retracted his hand when he saw Maryanne and James come back.
Lexis inhaled deeply and then smiled weakly towards James, knowing she couldn't really make up and excuse to leave early. [b "Thanks honey. This food looks good."]
Surprisingly, most of their conversation hadn’t revolved all the way around his restaurant. Once alone, Maryanne had taken to asking James personal questions about her own marriage. She had seen how well him, and Lexi were doing with their treatment and it gave her some faith that her marriage could work, but she also was worried that Chad wasn’t trying as hard and wouldn’t ever try for their marriage She was at a loss. She loved him, but he was unable to stay away from his philandering and adulterous ways as she already had caught him getting the number from the bartender that trivia night. James tried not to show his discomfort. He could understand why she was talking to him, they had all shared their reasoning for being at the retreat. Though that wasn’t to say that James found he was the right person to be giving her advice – yet who better than someone who had a wide who at one point had been in the same predicament.
“So, what do you think I should do” Maryanne asked him. James sighed as he held the two plates, looking over to the girl who was heartbroken and struggling to hold onto something that wasn’t there. He looked to her and he felt bad, wondering if this was what Lexia want through and even worse, how she went through it alone.
“Maryanne,” James said. “All I can say is some point love won’t be enough. I mean, some people just aren’t meant to be no matter how much they love one another.” Though with the frequency of Chad’s actions, it was clear that maybe he just didn’t love Maryanne and if she wanted happiness, she had to accept that fact and let go.
“Wow, there is some spice to you.” Chad said with a chuckle, leaning in closer, hands still gentle against her thigh under the table. “C’mon Lexia – you don’t want to fulfill the fantasy of someone else? Surely you wonder what went through your husband’s head all those times he was with the other women.” Fingers had spread then, inching up higher, though quickly pulling away as he could see James and Maryanne coming back. He winked at Lexia.
The retreat had gone really well. They aired everything they had to say to each other. It wasn't easier and there were plenty of tears along the way but along with those tears came a deeper connection on an emotional level. They sat for hours talking at night and then making love to each other. She was sure that they hadn't spent a night together without falling into some passion with each other since the trivia night. In between the therapy sessions they enjoyed time together as a family and she was even getting used to spending some time alone too. She was learning and Mason would be okay without them for a little while.
Honestly, Lexia was a little sad to learn that their time together here was coming to an end but she also had to remember that they had come here for permanent fixes and things would be so much better when they went home. It had all been worth it.
On their final night they had some kind on celebration evening and Lexia used the opportunity to get dressed up again. She wore a dressed this time. It was a navy blue lace dress that clung to her figure ever so slightly and it rested half way up her thigh. She had pulled her hair back into a braid and wore a bit of makeup and some nice jewelry and she was really enjoying her night even though she had chosen to spend it with Maryanne and Chad.
Lexia watched James go off with Maryanne and smiled to herself, knowing the woman had become quite interested in his restaurant. What was nice was the fact that she trusted him completely and she didn't feel anything other than happiness right then. That was until Chad opened his mouth and ran his hand over her leg. [B "I'd appreciate it if you kept your hands to yourself."]
“You were something else,” he told her with a breathless chuckle. Being with Lexia had never felt more exciting and all he could do was hold her warm body close to his, the perfect ending being to cuddle with his wife. His arms wrapped around her tight as he kissed her forehead. He was thinking a lot then, about all they had been through and how strong Lexia was – even stronger considering how she still stayed by his side. She had pushed him toward working on his own dreams and remained faithful that things would work out, even when they hadn’t. He wondered then if his pride hadn’t gotten in the way, would the restaurant have worked out with Lexia’s help. She had always been so good about those things – Afterall she had been with him every step of the way since opening his first restaurant. He closed his eyes, buryig his nose into Lexia’s neck.
Sleep came very easily. Getting away was nice and each day that they were ate the retreat, James could feel his relationship growing stronger and stronger. Hanging out with Maryanne and Chad was nice too and they had come to grow close to the couple. They were spending time at the pool, walks together and catching dinner and a drink very now and then.
It was soon the final night of the retreat. A big luau had been in the works. James and Lexia had made a lot of progress and though the ceremony would stay within the confines of the property, it meant a lot to him to know that they had made it through. Mason had been at the daycare, as the owners of the retreat wanted the couples to enjoy this small moment of freedom in enjoying how much they had accomplished.
“I’ll go make our plates,” James told Lexia with a kiss to her cheek. Maryanne joined him as she had become very interested in James’ restaurant and had a few connections regarding getting him into tv or print with his cooking if interested. Chad swiveled his drink in his cup before downing it, eyes landing on Lexia. “I hope James doesn’t leave this retreat with two married women,” he lamely joked, his leg gentle as it brushed against Lexia’s leg.
Lexia didn't feel a bit of nervousness like she usually did when she tried something different. It wasn't as though she had never been this kind of intimate but it was the nature in which she had instigated their intimacy that was different. The way her name came from bus lips after made her all the more excited.
It wasn't long until the two of them moved on in their live making, James impatiently taking her as his own passionately. They were both very vocal throughout, moaning loudly with pleasuring and asking for something they wanted the other to do to add to their pleasure. They had never been like this before and it made her feel safe and secure within their marriage. She knew that she was going to be okay.
When they both had their fill of each they fell onto the bed out of breath but she couldn't get the smile from her face. With heavy breathing she looked towards James and took hold of his free hand. [B "I love you too James. With everything that I am."] She said as she moved herself closer to him.
[B "That was amazing."]
“If you could convince me,” James repeated with a smirk toward Lexia. He looked to her in surprise, then as he watched her gather into a hovering position. He leaned up into her kiss, his hands taking running gently through her hair. His breathing increased, feelings so intense and seemingly new to him, further increasing his pleasure from their kissing. Her lips were soft as they ran along his neck, James’ hands running over the smooth fabric of the jumpsuit she wore, wanting to tear it from her body; his palms burned as he yearned to feel the soft skin as his hands ran along the curve of her spine gently guided lower to keep her against him. James for the most part had managed to hold out, but that husky whisper of Lexia’s wants before enveloping him had taken him down. His lips parted with him only having the ability then to gasp, before moaning her name.
James and Lexia had never made love like this before and yet it reminded him of all their passionate affairs wrapped into one solo night. If there was one thing Lexia was that night, it was bold and sexy – so unlike her and yet, it didn’t seem out of character. Hands gentle, sifted through soft strands of hair, eyes looking at her before closing when the moment was too much. There was certainly the possibility of leaving it off at that, but James hungered for his wife at that moment. Finally – the climax after weeks of arguing, crying, and lonely nights; lonely nights no more. He’d peeled away the layers, items of clothing lining the floors. He was impatient, raging then and not satisfied until she welcomed him in.
Everything happened so fast then, nails digging into tender flesh, pleas and direction whispered, gradually growing loud until finally they’d both spilled over. James grip was firm, their lips vibrating against one another’s as he moaned in relief. Eventually his body was no longer tense and he fell back, a grin on his face as his fingers gently drew circles on her thigh. Finding some strength, James sat up, propped by his elbows. “I love you Lexia,” he said.
Lexia watched as he got himself ready for bed and she was more than happy when he pulled her closer to him. She wanted nothing more than for this to go on for the rest of their lives together. Lexia hadn't taken her clothes of yet and she had no intention of doing so if it mean that she had to pull away from James. She wanted to stay like this for now.
[B "Dancing? Wow you would do that for me?"] She chuckled a little and then she kissed him gently before letting out a sigh. Being here was like a weight off her shoulders.
Lexia decided that she was going to enjoy more of their night together since Mason was asleep. She adjusted herself so that she was leaning over him and she started to kiss him deeply before she moved her lips to his neck. This felt exciting like it had been at the start of their relationship. She looked up at him wish a smile before she started to kiss down his chest, fully intending on pleasuring her husband.
[B "I want you."] She said before she dipped lower, taking him in her mouth. Perhaps the spontaneity of this would show him that their sex life could be fun.
James was glad to find that James was glad that Mason was doing well away from home and the comfort of being in their room or even Lexia’s arms. James had kicked off his shoes, shedding his clothing then before getting into bed. He was certainly exhausted form the long day they had. James thought back to the morning. The things that were said at their session, it was tough. He didn’t know whether he would be prepared for the next day. Though Maryanne and Chad had made it seem like the rest of the week would be a breeze. Maybe it wouldn’t be so bad, and James was worrying for nothing. He turned to Lexia.
“I’m glad you had fun,” he said to her with smile, reaching over with the intent of drawing her in closer. “I had a great time.” It was true that James was a confidant and outspoken guy, but in some aspects, he was a bit introverted; big flashy scenes and lots of socializing didn’t do well for him especially if surrounded by new people or in a new place. Though, he had found it somewhat easy to have a conversation with the other couple. James figured he just needed to put himself out there a little more; they both did. “You look great, maybe next time if its just us, you can convince me to dance.” He chuckled softly. Looking at Lexia then, all he could think about was how much he loved her. It had been odd for him to suggest the retreat, but knowing that he could lose Lexia had terrified the male and he knew he had to make a decision and be quick about it if he wanted to protect their marriage.
Lexia smiled widely towards James. [B "I love you too."] Things were already starting to look up for the couple and she looked towards Maryanne with a smile as she complimented them as a couple. They had always worked so well, James a little rough and ready and Lexia sweet and shy. They were the perfect example of the fact that opposites truly did attract and they could make their relationship work. She was confident that by the time this retreat was over, their relationship would be in great shape.
[B "I'm sure you would make a wonderful mother. It sounds like you have a lot to think about though. Your modelling would most likely have to go on hold for a while so definitely take the time to think about it."] He looked towards Mason then, completely filled with love for him. She wouldn't change him for the world and she was so glad that they had him when they did.
For the rest of the night, she forgot about Chad's flirting and simply enjoyed being with James. They had fun, much like they used to on their date nights and it wasn't too bad having company either. Perhaps when they got home it would be time to start doing more together and this was just proof that they didn't have to sacrifice their time with Mason to enjoy their time together, although she also knew and understood the importance of making time for themselves.
By the time they were heading back to their room, they decided to go back together and when James busied himself with Mason, Chad too the opportunity to brush the small.of her back. Her breath caught in her throat and she almost shuddered as she felt his breath on her neck. She avoided eye contact with him as the couple went off to their rooms, James and Lexia doing the same.
[B "He is going to sleep well tonight."] She chuckled as she looked set their sleeping son. Once they were back in the room they both put him to bed and Lexia loweed herself onto their bed. [B "I had a really good time tonight. Did you?"]
James looked to Lexia then, smiling and leaning into her kiss. He let good knowing that Lexia could see how hard he was working and valued that. She was willing to let him take more of a lead in raising their child and to Lexia’s standards, he was doing a good job.
“Thanks babe, I love you.” He said. The two were definitely a bit friendlier than usual and James took that as a sign that the retreat was doing good for them. They had another five days; how much more could they improve? It was exciting to think about. He kissed Lexia once more before returning back toward eating.
“You guys are too cute,” Maryanne said to the couple. “So is your son. We’ve been thinking about having a kid. I’m a model and it’s just so overwhelming you know. I think I want to just take a step back and really focus on a family.” James could see the look of concern in Chad’s face for a brief second and he wondered if that was something that Chad wanted. They were both young though and had their whole lives ahead of them. Even Lexia and James were still pretty young and while they loved Mason, he knew that it did take a lot of work. Were they all prepared for that?
The trivia night was actually somewhat fun and it was curious to see what small random bits of information that Lexia and him knew, even things that they both shared from common interests. It made him feel like they were on a first date. The night didn’t seem to end all that great for the other couple though, who were not so silently arguing about Chad and the female bartender. Closing time soon came around and they were all set to leave. They walked the couple to their room wishing them a good night and thanking them for the invitation. James had tended to Mason, not noticing how Chad had taken an opportunity to gently graze his hand against Lexia’s back. It was small move though and could be passed off as accidental.
“Have a good night,” he whispered to Lexia.
Mason had knocked out which meant he and Lexia had the night to themselves. So far, having Mason sleep in his own crib was working out well. It had just been one night though. Eventually he headed toward the room. He was full and had enjoyed himself, even with just one beer surprisingly. Though that was hard to hold back on.
Lexia really didn't like Chad's approach or tone but she didn't want to be rude and completely ignore him. She just had to tell herself that Maryanne and James would be back at the table before she knew it and then she wouldn't have to worry about feeling uncomfortable.
[B "Not really. We met at a restaurant."] He smiled towards him although she only did so out of manners because she didn't really want to be talking to him. She didn't know why he made her feel weird but the way he looked at her was kind of like the way a predator would look at his prey. He shouldn't have been looking at her while he was married to Maryanne. Perhaps this is why they were here in the first place. Perhaps he was a cheat. He certainly gave off the vibe. He didn't seem all too happy with the marriage parting their relationship. It almost sounded as though she had him locked up or something and that bothered him.
Then he made her feel even more uncomfortable by commenting something highly inappropriate towards her. Before she had a chance to respond their partners returned and she felt relieved. She tried to ignore Chad, knowing there was no point in bringing it up because Chad wouldn't be apart of the test of their retreat or so she thought.
[B "You are such a good father you know that babe?"] She said as she kissed his cheek.
“Two years?” Chad said with a smile, “Not that long. You guys highschool sweethearts or something” Lexia looked like that type of girl. The type of girl that definitely took sex seriously and probably held out until she and her partner officially declared they were in a committed relationship. Her husband James didn’t really give that vibe, he seemed a bit rough around the edges and he wondered if he liked Lexia because she gave off that completely submissive vibe, to which Chad certainly enjoyed. “Maryanne and I have been dating on and off for five years, only married for three,” he said. Though he didn’t sound too happy about it. Truthfully, one he married her; he knew she had the power to take him for all he had. They were both high profile socialites from the West Cost and though they both had their own cash flow coming in, that didn’t stop from coming after the other. Divorce was not int heir favor. Though, of course they were here as he had been caught having his second affair since they last came to the retreat. At some point the two did love one another, not it was about lust and comfort. Still, Maryanne treated him every bit like he was her husband and these retreats were an attempt to get Chad to see that.
“It’s nice, being able to see all of you,” Chad said with a wink, in reference to them at the pool; Lexia had refused to get out until they left. James was coming back then as well as Maryanne and soon their food had arrived. They had started to hand out the bells for the trivia game which was starting soon. In the meantime, he ate and drank his beer, feeding Mason to keep him happy, before he dozed off for a nap no doubt.
It didn't take long for them to find the couple they had met around the pool and when they found each other they made their way to a booth which gave them enough space for Mason's stroller. She was worried that the couple would be disappointed that they had a child with them but it was clear that Maryanne wanted a child of her own, or at least enjoyed spending time with children. She watched her for a moment as she talked to the young boy as though he could understand her. It brought a smile to her face but when the waiter cake over she realised that she hadn't even looked at the menu yet and so she decided to order the same thing as James.
Maryanne excused herself to go and talk to another couple and soon enough Madon started to fuss a little which indicated that he needed changing. She smiled and kissed James on the cheek as he made his way to the bathroom so that he could change him for her. It was nice relinquishing a bit of control and she was sure James appreciated that she was already allowing him to take over a little more.
Soon enough she was left alone with Chad and she looked towards him, trying to smile a little but the way he looked at her made her wish that she have worn a jacket that she could pull around her. Lexia cleared her throat. [B "We are enjoying the retreat a lot thank you. James and I have been married for almost two years now. What about you and Maryanne?"]
They caught up with Maryanne and Chad and certainly enough the place was packed. James wasn’t really that good with crowds, and yet it was a bit exciting to be in this environment of fun with his wife. He held Lexia close and they decided on booth since they had Mason in his stroller. They soon reached the booth then and were handed menus. “This is crazy,” he said with a chuckle as he looked to the couple across from him. Maryanne was talking to Mason, apparently very much a person who loved kids in comparison to her husband, who seemed to have his eyes focused more so on Lexia. James was none the wiser though. There were some food dishes on the menu, and it made him think about work. He was actually missing being in the kitchen, but he was telling himself it was much more fun to just have a moment to relax and taste other people’s food.
The waiter soon came to take their orders. Mason needed a changing. He was reacting well surprisingly, considering the slightly loud noise and all the people, but he was behaving.
“I’ll go change him," James said to Lexia with a smile. He got up and left then, Maryanne already gone t meet up with another couple she had befriended. James wondered if this was her friend’s second time her as well.
Chad to Lexia then. She certainly looked how he expected, even better and he wondered why she was hiding in the pool with a body like the one she had.
“So, how’re you enjoying the retreat so far?” He asked her, licking his lips then as his eyes trailed her body, lading on her chest. “How long have you guys been married?”
Lexia looked to James when he spoke and the way he looked at her made her blush. He hadn't looked at her like that since they had first met and it lit a fire within her, ince that she didn't want to every burn out. She smiled towards him and was pretty much ready to go but it seemed that James had other plans right then.bhis hand snaked around her and rested on her bottom as he drew her close, complimenting her before kissing her deeply.she inhaled deeply and by the time the kiss was over she was left feeling like she wanted him.
She chuckled and looked towards Mason and then nodded, knowing that they had to go. [B "I guess we are."] She said with a smile as she started towards the door. [B "He is literally the cutest little guy ever. No one could possible mind him being around."] She smiled and squeezed Mason's cheek gently to which he squealed happily and kicked his legs.
Once the door the elevator opened they stepped in and it took them down the floor where the trivia night was taking place. It was busy and it appeared that many couples has signed up to do this tonight. She wondered then, how much they should do together as a couple when they went back home, whether James would be willing to sacrifice some time at the restaurant to be home more.
[B "It's busy!"]
