WAIT, BEFORE YOU READ THIS, HAVE YOU READ Made It To The City?
The door of the New York City high rise condo swung open and in walked Jasmine. With her duffle bag slung across her chest and Perry’s camera bag in hand, Jasmine entered the penthouse.
Despite being smack dab in the middle of the city, the penthouse gave off cozy cabin in the woods type vibes. As Jasmine and Perry ventured further into the house, Jasmine stared up at the deep brown, wooden support beams that stretched across the high ceiling. As the couple made their way to the living room, Jasmine gasped as she came face to face with floor to ceilings windows; the New York City skyline on full display.
“Babe! This is incredible.” She said in a hushed tone.
Behind her, Perry smiled from ear to ear as they watched their girlfriend slowly set the bag down; her eyes never leaving the window. Like a moth to a flame, Jasmine practically floated across the living room and over to the massive window.
“I can see the whole city from here! This is fucking insane!” Jasmine said in awe.
After setting the rest of the bags down next to the one’s their girlfriend had been carrying, Perry crossed the living room and made their way over to her.
As Perry wrapped their arms around Jasmine from behind, she sunk into them, basking in both the warmth of her partner, and the amazing view.
“I can’t wait to see the city at night.” Perry mumbled as they nuzzled Jasmine’s neck.
Reaching up, Jasmine hooked a hand behind her partner’s head and hummed with delight.
“Me too.” She said quietly.
The couple stood there for a moment longer before Perry’s alarm went off.
“Come on babe. We’ve gotta start getting ready to go.” Perry mumbled into the crook of Jasmine’s neck.
Moving forward, Jasmine turned around to look at their partner as if they’d grown a second head.
“Get ready to go! Go where? We just got here!” She said.
“Dinner. Come on. We’ve got reservations, and you know how much I hate being late.” Perry said as they took a hold of their girlfriend’s hand.
Making their way into the bedroom, Perry and Jasmine set their suitcases at the foot of the bed and opened them.
“Is this why you insisted I bring a dress?” Jasmine asked as she pulled the black garment bag from her suitcase.
“Why of course. Gotta make the most of the city.” Perry said with a smirk.
After hanging their suit up next to Jasmine’s dress, Perry and Jasmine stripped out of their clothes before grabbing their toiletry bags and heading into the bathroom. Once they were in the shower, Perry adjusted the water to the perfect temperature before wetting Jasmine’s favorite pink loofah. Then, after pouring some of Jasmine’s body wash onto it, Perry turned to face Jasmine, who eyed them suspiciously.
“What?” Perry asked as they lathered the loofah.
Jasmine squinted, causing Perry to laugh.
“Why are you looking at me like that?” Perry asked.
Jasmine wagged a finger at her partner.
“You’re up to something.” She said.
Laughing again, Perry rolled their eyes.
“Shut up and turn around.” They said.
Doing as she was told, Jasmine turned, presenting them with her back.
“Are you proposing?” Jasmine asked, causing Perry to laugh.
“What, here? In the shower?” Perry joked.
“No. My family would be here for that.” Jasmine said, talking more to herself than to Perry.
Unable to help themself, Perry decided to toy with her a bit.
“What if they’re waiting somewhere in the city?” Perry said, egging her on.
While some might think toying with your partner about something as serious as getting engaged was cruel, Perry and Jasmine have known each other for over a decade, and there’s nothing the couple loves more than a good joke.
Turning around, Jasmine eyed Perry up and down.
“You’re fucking with me.” She said matter of factly.
“I don’t know, am I?” They asked, arching a brow.
Biting her lip, Jasmine studied her partner for a moment before turning back around.
“Fuck you Pair.” She said, causing her partner to laugh.
Jasmine continued to throw out guesses as to what her surprise was as Perry washed both themself and Jasmine. Then, as they exited the shower, Jasmine huffed in defeat.
“You’re really not gonna tell me?” She whined as she and Perry wrapped themselves in their towels.
Perry shook their head no, causing her to huff yet again.
“Fine.” Jasmine said.
Then, making her way to her suitcase, she got an idea. Smirking to herself, she allowed her towel to fall. As the towel pooled around her feet, Perry inhaled sharply, causing Jasmine to smirk. She then bent over, making a show of it, as she grabbed her bag before throwing it on the bed. Then, after grabbing Perry’s favorite dark purple lingerie from the bag , she quickly wrapped the lingerie in the towel before grabbing her dress and making her way back towards the bathroom.
“Wait, where are you going?” Perry asked, catching Jasmine by her arm.
Perry’s gaze was pure lust as their eyes raked over her, setting her skin ablaze.
“To the bathroom, I want my dress to be a surprise.” She lied.
Before Perry could argue, she slipped from their grasp and made her way into the bathroom. Then, quickly closing the door, she tossed her towel on the hook of the door, along with the garment bag.
“Babe, can you bring me my makeup bag?” She called out as she curled her hair.
There was a shuffle in the bedroom before Perry made their way into the bathroom.
“I don’t understand why you even wear makeup. Personally I think you look- woah.”
Perry’s jaw fell slack as they stood in the doorway, taking in all that was their girlfriend. Leaning over the bathroom sink, Jasmine curled the last hair before setting the curling iron back in it’s holder and twisting around.
The smug response Jasmine had intended to deliver when they finally saw her died on her tongue as she took in all that was Perry.
Perry wore a crisp, black shirt with the first few buttons undone and their sleeves rolled up to their elbows; their shirt tucked into a pair of black slacks. The look was simple, but it still managed to take Jasmine’s breath away.
“You look amazing!” They both said at the same time.
Laughing, Jasmine’s stomach fluttered as if this were her first date.
The couple admired one another for a moment before Perry held up the makeup bag.
“Don’t wanna be late.” They said, swinging the bag.
Agreeing with them Jasmine took the bag and got to work. Then, after applying the final touches, she spun around.
“How do I look?” She asked.
Smiling from ear to ear Perry stepped forward.
“Like a goddess.” They said just above a whisper.
“That’s probably because I am.” She said with a wink.
Then, stepping around them, she grabbed Perry’s hand, lacing her finger’s in with there’s.
“Come on, don’t wanna be late.” She said, tugging them along.
Making their way through the bedroom, Perry scooped up their watch, keys, and phone before Jasmine dragged them downstairs and out the door.
What do you think Perry’s reaction’s gonna be when they finally see Jasmine in her lingerie?
Until next time, stay safe- Cephinise
