Epilogue

“Do you really know what you’re doing?” Joe said, completely unsure of Ariel’s abilities.

“You don’t trust me?” she giggled back, straightening his now wrinkled tie. “Don’t you think a wife should be able to tie her husband’s tie?”

“Not if it’s going to take her three hundred tries,” he sighed. “Are you almost done?”

“Almost…so how come the bunny ears don’t loop over the other loop?” she looked up at him, confused.

With a horrified expression, he examined the tie only to see a perfect looped knot. Ariel, smiling and giggling harder than before, clicked her tongue and shook her head.

“See, this is perfect. And to think, you even doubted me,” she teased. “Now you can go to work without looking like a bum. I’m going back to bed.”

With a yawn, she gave him a small kiss on the cheek right before crawling back to bed and into the warm fluffy sheets. She looked comfortable and he could feel a tinge of childish jealousy.

“Mm, what are you doing?” she asked, seeing Joe poke his head from the sheets from the end of the bed. Crawling towards her, he plopped his still sleepy body onto the firm mattress next to her.

“Ah…” Joe sighed contently. “I’m going to stay in bed with you.”

She poked at his nose and he winced, pulling his head back.

“Can I have another kiss?” he asked sweetly.

“No,” she chuckled, frowning at him. “Go to work.”

He wasn’t happy with her answer. So Joe only shuffled a few inches lower and huddled next to her belly.

“Well I haven’t been here in a while,” he chuckled and gave it a soft kiss.

“Hey!” she laughed. “Get out of there!”

He snuck back up from the covers and saw her biting her bottom lip to stop herself from laughing. Climbing on top of her, he settled himself snugly to the most pefect view of her slightly aggravated face.

“Well?” he pouted. “Where’s my kiss?”

With all that swishing he did under the sheet, he had become a bit more disheveled than what she would like him to be.

“You’re ruining your tie!” she screamed. “I spent my morning fixing you up and look at you now.”

“Are you going to make me get it myself?” He asked, lowering his forehead to hers.

Clasping a hand over his mouth, Ariel stopped him just as he was about to get any closer. She held it there for a moment as they looked at each other. Joe let out an awkward chuckle and with her hand still over his mouth, he slowly let the weight of her hand fall to her lips. Seeing as this was as close as he was going to get, he kissed the palm of her delicate hand. The embarrassment was all too much to handle for Ariel.

“You’re teasing me again,” she pushed him away, this time covering her face with both hands. Murmuring her awkwardness she continued to scold. “I’m hiding from you.”

“Oh and you’re doing a wonderful job,” Joe chuckled.

The only thing he could see were the strands of hair falling ungracefully on her fingers that covered her face. He tucked them in lightly on the back of her ears letting bits of shadow and light frame her delicate hands just perfectly. It would have been lovelier to have seen her face but she wasn’t having it. He rolled off of her and tried tugging her hands loose but only enabled her to sit up, with her hands locked securely on her face.

“You know, if you keep this up I might just have to fall in love with her hands,” he joked. “You have to breathe sometime.”

Giving a deep sigh, Joe figured if he couldn’t have what he wanted, he’d make the most of what he’s got. So he put his own hands on top of hers. Quickly, she began wriggling out as oxygen was getting slimmer and slimmer.

“JOE!” she yelled out loud, just as he let go of her hands. “You’re horrible!” she screamed, slapping him squarely on his chest.

But Joe couldn’t help laughing at her. Before she could really let him have it, Joe grabbed her by the waist and pulled her closer to him. Still laughing a bit, Joe snaked a gentle hand around her neck and caressed it slowly with a finger.

“You really want me to take your breath away?” he smugly asked, before laying her softly down on the bed.

As if he hasn’t already, she thought to herself. It may have just been the way she felt underneath his warm body that made her weak in her knees. Thank goodness she was lying down.

Tracing her jaw line carefully with brief kisses, he eventually reached her lips all the while letting his hands roam around her once familiar figure. It was a feeling that sent sharp pangs in the pit of her stomach and at the same time the euphoria came out like heaven on earth.

“I love you,” she whispered in between their kiss.

“And…I’m late!” he cried as the sudden realization hit. Quickly gathering his composure, Joe reluctantly left his wife on the bed to laugh and laugh.
