To The Cafe Love!
Since we didn’t have any customers yet, we poured a cup of coffee and Karen and I sat down, and talked for a while. I said: “Karen, last night when I was talking with Viktor, he agreed to forget the restaurant. I didn’t ask you girls, but what I’ve wanted is not a restaurant, but a larger cafe decorated in a true ‘Love’ theme. Think about this and see what you can come up with. You are the closest one of the girls to me Karen, I have always looked at you as my sister. So I want you to be the first to know. “Then I held out my right hand with Viktor’s ring shining bright, and a big smile.
Karen said: “Glory, that is beautiful! I am very happy for you, but I thought you said you were going to wait. Are you sure you should marry Viktor before you have even had a chance to get to know him?” I said: “Karen, we are going to wait for a while, but we are going to be buying a small ranch soon, I would rather move in with Viktor as his wife than his lover.” Karen nodded and said: “I agree with that Glory, I wuld never have moved in with Larry before we were married. But we dated for two years before getting married, you haven’t known Viktor more than a week!”
Then our customers started coming in and it turned ot to be one of our busiest Friday’s ina long time. It was strange how much attention a ring can get, it seemed almost everyone I waited on had some kind of comment about it. The end of the day finally came. When Ellen came in to take my place, I went into the back room where we had a private bathroom, took a shower and changed my clothes. Susan came in just as I walked out into the cafe, and Karen went back to change. It would still be a couple hours before Viktor, Larry and the rest of the girls showed up.
At seven I closed the cafe and had Ellen and Susan go get ready before the others showed up. Karen and I took care of the last of the customers, and then sat down to finish our conversaton which we had to stop this morning. I said: “Karen, you are a married woman, deeply in love with Larry. Anytime you wish, the two of you can have children. I am thirty, and I don’t have any time to waste. I believe Viktor is truly in love with me, and he is the only man I have ever wanted to marry. I hope you can see why I am letting our relatonship move along at such a fast pace.”
She said: “You have been a different woman since you met Viktor. Glory, the sadness and loneliness that I used to see in you is gone. If you and Viktor can hold on to just a portion of what you have now, I believe you will have a good marriage. There is not much more to say Glory, if you believe Viktor is the right man; then I believe you. We should talk about something else now, the others are starting to show up.”
Marie and Lisa were the first to come, then Larry and finally Viktor who had also brought Mark and Sam with him. Viktor came over and sat beside me and gave me a kiss. He looked arond the cafe and said: “Well, it looks like we are all here, we might as well get going.” Mark and Sam rode with Viktor and I, in his Cadillac. Ellen, Susan, Marie and Lisa rode in Marie’s car. Karen and Larry rode in his Corvette. Viktor took us to a good resaurant for dinner first, and then to a place with a live band and dance floor. Then we all went back to the cafe for some coffee before going home. When the others had left, I locked up the cafe and was about to go to my car, when Viktor said: “Glory, how about coming to my place tonight? Or would you rather go to your apartment? Either way I would like to spend the night with you!”
I said: “I’ll go wherever you like Viktor, but I can’t stay up all night, I have to open the cafe tomorrow morning. It will be easier for me if we go to my apartment.” He said: “Then that will be fine Sugar, I just want to sit and talk for a little while before we go to bed.” We drove our cars to my apartment and Viktor parked beside me. After I opened the door, I went and made some coffee. It was gettng late so I brought a cup for each of us, sat beside Viktor and said: “Okay Honey, what is on your mind?”
he said: “Sunday morning I will be over to pick you up. A Realtor showed me pictures of a forty acre ranch that I think you will like. It has a year-round creek, plenty of oak trees and a barn. There is a small house, but it is in such bad shape that it should be torn down. If you like it, we will get an architect started on your house.” He waited a moment and then began again: “Although all of my toys are your toys now too, they are only toys. We have not had a ceremony announcing our marriage to the public. But as far as I am concerned, you are already my wife. To me this means you have the right to know anything you want about me. There should be no closed doors, no rooms you are not allowed to go into and explore. Glory my Love, is there anything about me that concerns you? Anything at all that you want to know or feel that you need to know?”
I said: “Yes Viktor,but it is late, if we start talking about this now, we will be up all night. Thank-you Honey for opening up to me like this, I will take you up on your offer later when we have more time. There are many things I would like you to tell me about, but not tonight Honey. Now my Husband, I want you to take me in your strong arms and hold me, kiss me and make love to me. We have talked enough for one night!”
Viktor stood up, held out his hands and gently lifted me up. As he did, he said: “You are so beautiful tonight Baby, I didn’t tell you earlier like I should have. You were truly the most beautiful woman at the Club tonight! Maybe I shouldn’t be so jealous, but when those men started staring at you, and saying things they had no right to say, I almost went over and started a fight!”
Then he pulled me to him until my breasts were pressed tighly against his chest, and said: “I am so glad that you will always be with me, I love you Baby.” Then he began to kiss me and my whole body ached for him. After a while he pulled back and began to undress me. When he finished, he stepped back and said: “Now you are truly Beautiful! You are the only woman on earth that I will ever want, and I will love you forever.” Then he took my hand and led me into the bedroom. After he undressed, we made love again that night, until we fell asleep. Viktor must have gotten up early Saturday morning, when I got up at seven, he was already gone and had left a note on my dresser: “Sugar, I had to leave early this morning and did not want to wake you. I will see you Sunday around nine a.m., I have to make a quick run to L.A. today. I will be at the hotel this evening if you want me. See you soon; your ‘Lover Boy’”
