Birthdays came and went and Ava even bought Riley over for his first birthday, much to Mom’s delight. She’d otherwise been unable to see her first and possibly only grandchild so it was the first time she’d actually gotten to see him instead of just in pictures. Ava kept me and Maxxie up to date on how our nephew was doing but as for kids of our own... We hadn’t really talked about it.
And then after two years of med school, I’d gotten an internship at the local hospital so I’d been so swamped from that the idea of having kids had been sort of pushed back in my mind. Although kids were never far from my mind since I’d decided to specialise as a paediatrician. Most of the people I’d studied with that had managed to get an internship at the same hospital as me were all specialising in things like radiology and haematology and one of the nurses had even told me I should specialise in something more advanced since I was one of the best interns she’d seen in years. I worked from seven am til eight or nine pm, and that was when I wasn’t on call, so me and Maxxie hadn’t really been spending that much time together, if you get what I mean. I couldn’t remember the last time I’d seen him naked.
I got home somewhere between eight and nine, wandering into the kitchen and snuggling Maxxie from behind tiredly. He had a lot of free time on his hands since setting up his café and had been using that time to learn how to cook.
“Hey, gorgeous” he smiled.
I smiled back. “Hey”
He turned around, kissing me. “Happy Valentine’s”
I kissed back, kind of surprised as the words registered in my head. “It’s Valentine’s Day?”
He nodded and I blushed a little.”I totally forgot. Sorry”
He smiled. “It’s okay, I didn’t really expect you to remember now you’re busy being an intern”
I hummed, nuzzling his neck and he kissed the top of my head, turning back to whatever he’d been cooking when I walked in.
“Making anything nice?”
“Carbonara ‘cause I know I don’t fuck that up anymore” he said, chuckling a little. “And then ice cream and a movie for dessert”
“Sounds perfect. I’ll go slip into something a little more appealing” I laughed.
I know sweats and an old t-shirt are sexy and all but I could scrub up better than that. My wedding suit, which hung ever so proudly in a polythene cover in the wardrobe, was proof of that. I wandered out of the bedroom once I’d had a quick wash and changed into a shirt and pair of black shorts, seeing Maxxie had lit a couple candles on the coffee table. He handed me a bunch of roses, grinning a little.
“Thanks, they’re beautiful” I said with a smile.
“Nothing but the best for my husband” he grinned.
We both headed into the kitchen; him to dish up the carbonara and me to put the roses in some water.
“You spoil me” I smiled.
“I don’t often get the chance these days”
“Sorry about that” I said, feeling the corners of my mouth turn down a little.
“It’s okay, gorgeous” he said, kissing my forehead.
“I’ll make it up to you at some point” I smiled, though I wasn’t exactly sure when. Or how, for that matter.
Maxxie smiled, putting the plates down on the coffee table. “I need a proper table” he said, laughing a little.
I chuckled. “Maybe we need a bigger apartment”
We didn’t really need a bigger apartment but one a little closer to the hospital wouldn’t be such a bad thing. I’d get to spend more time with Maxxie in the mornings and in general since it wouldn’t take me so long to get to and from the hospital. I could drop by and see him for lunch or something.
"One nearer the hospital wouldn't be too bad, either"
"I'll have a look tomorrow, if you like"
"You don't have to if you don't want to move"
Maxxie shrugged. "If it makes your life easier, then I don't mind. Running the cafe is something I do from home most of the time anyway, so it wouldn't bother me"
"Thanks, Maxxie" I smiled and he smiled back.
I kissed him and he kissed back. The two of us dug into our meal in a kind of pleasant silence and I glanced at him from under my lashes every now and then when I knew he wasn’t looking. He was a couple years off thirty but he looked exactly the same as he had when I first met him; absolutely fucking gorgeous. Thanks to me skipping out on my iron pills, I couldn’t finish the entire meal but Maxxie didn’t say anything, clearing up once we were finished and bringing over a tub of ice cream. I smiled and put on a horror when Maxxie let me pick what we watched, snuggling up to him on the couch. I did my best not to giggle whenever he jumped, which was at pretty much everything and cuddled him a little tighter each time. I ended up sort of falling asleep at some point and woke up a few minutes before the end of the movie. Maxxie smiled as I woke up and I smiled back, blushing slightly.
"Sorry" I said and he chuckled a little.
"It's okay, gorgeous"
I snuggled up to him more, watching the rest of the movie and generally just enjoying spending time with Maxxie for the first time in a while.
"Do I have to move?" I asked when the movie was over.
"Well you can hardly sleep on the sofa"
I looked up at Maxxie innocently and he picked me up, carrying me to bed. I wrapped my legs around him once he’d put me down and he snuggled up to me.
"Y'know, I can't remember the last time I saw you naked" I said, resting my head in his neck.
"You're welcome to refresh your memory" he said, kissing the top of my head and I hummed. He played with my hair. "It'll involve moving though" he chuckled.
I nibbled his neck a little, giving him a hickey as he tilted his head. I undid his shirt slowly, teasing him and giggling as he watched me impatiently. I trailed kisses down his chest, gasping a little as he groped my ass. I kissed back as he kissed me, moaning into his mouth as he palmed me. He got my shorts off and I undid his jeans, pulling them off along with his boxers as he got my shirt off. I moaned some more as he kept palming me, humming as he pulled my boxers off. I got the lube, giggling as he spanked me a little.
"Having fun?" I asked as he grinned.
"Not at all, Bunny boy"
I giggled again, lubing him up and stretching myself, dragging it out longer than I had to just to tease Maxxie. He growled slightly and I looked at him innocently. He pushed me down onto the bed, giving me a hickey and I giggled. I got up, straddling Maxxie and biting back a moan as I lowered myself down onto his member. I put my hands on his chest, pulling myself up and sliding back down again, watching Maxxie’s face. His hands moved to my hips and I moved a little faster but still going at a kind of teasing pace. I gave in eventually, going as fast as I could manage, my hands still resting on his chest and moaning as he angled his hips to meet my prostate each time. It was fucking magical.
