“Just be patient. We’re almost there,” Michael told his over-excited, blindfolded girlfriend. Opening another door, he led her into a room and brought her to stand in the centre of it. “Okay, just stay there for a second and don’t move.”
Maria felt him walk away from her and shifting from foot to foot, she impatiently waited for him to come back to her. The fabric he had used to blindfold her with was thick and wasn’t letting in any light so she had no idea where she was. She was sorely tempted to lift it up slightly so she could take a peek and finally that temptation won out. Straining her ears, she couldn’t hear him and she was certain that he had left her alone while he did whatever it was he was up to. Her hands slowly came up and just as she was about to move her blindfold, her hands were stilled in mid-air and she gasped.
“I can’t leave you alone for a second, can I?” Michael’s voice teased.
“I just want to know where you’ve brought me.”
“Don’t you trust me?”
“Of course I do but you know me and surprises. We don’t mesh well.”
“You can say that again.” Moving behind her, he gently untied the blindfold and removed it and coming to stand in front of her again, he watched her face as she took in her surroundings.
After a minute or two had passed, she said, “Michael, this is...it’s beautiful.” She turned in a circle so she could see everything. The room she was standing in was a beautifully decorated living room with a large Christmas tree by the window and underneath it lay several wrapped presents. Apart from the tree, the other main focal point was the roaring fire that was keeping the room toasty warm.
“Do you like it?” Michael asked, his nervousness coming through in his voice.
“Like it? I love it. How did you do all this?”
“I have my ways.”
Inching closer to her, he took her face between his palms and kissed her thoroughly. He gave her a half-smirk when he pulled away too soon and heard the moan that escaped her lips. “I wanted our first Christmas back together to be special, Maria. We’ve been on the run for months and nothing’s happened to any of us so I figured I could do this for you...for us.”
Maria’s arms came up and wrapped around his neck and she hugged him tightly. “Thank you. This means so much to me. How long can we stay here?”
“It’s just for a couple of days. I wish it could be for longer but...”
“No,” she interrupted. “A couple of days is fine. It’s more than I could have hoped for.”
His arms wrapped around her waist and he pulled her further into his body. They stood there in a comfortable silence for a few moments before she drew back from him and took his hands into hers.
“So, you wanna give me the full tour of this place?”
“Sure,” he replied and leading her out of the room he walked down the hallway and firstly showed her the kitchen which was stocked with their favourite foods. After that he showed her the bathroom with the large sunken tub and finally he showed her the bedroom which also had a fireplace.
“Ohmigod! This whole apartment is gorgeous but how can we afford to stay here?”
“Don’t worry about that, it’s all taken care of.”
“How do you mean?” She asked and when she placed a hand on her hip and gave him that look, he knew he had to answer her.
“I’m using some of the money left over from when we were in Vegas,” he confessed to her.
“I thought you said you didn’t have any left?”
“That’s what I told Max when he wanted to borrow some to buy Liz a gift. It’s not my fault he refused to use his powers to earn some money at the casinos. Why should I have to give him mine?”
Maria laughed. “And how did you explain this place to Max?”
“I didn’t. He doesn’t know where we are. I told Kyle just in case there was an emergency and he knows better than to spill to the others. As far as Max is concerned, we’re just holed up at some motel.”
“I can’t help feeling bad that we’re spending Christmas here and they’re somewhere else and...”
“Maria, we’ve got nothing to feel bad about. You really think if this was Max and Liz they’d be worrying about us or the others? No, they wouldn’t. Anyway, I gave Isabel some cash so she could be the Christmas Nazi we all know and love so they’re not going to go cold or hungry. Satisfied?”
Instead of answering him, she jumped into his arms and kissed him loudly on the cheek. “Aww Spaceboy, I think you’re getting soft in your old age.”
“Does this feel soft?” He whispered lustfully as he ground his hardness into her stomach.
She was practically purring as she rubbed herself against him and standing on her tiptoes, she buried her face into his neck and breathed in his unique scent. “No, it feels hard...really hard.” Her teeth grazed his throat and he growled in response.
Lowering his head to hers, he let his tongue trail a path around her lips before thrusting it inside her mouth and letting it glide against hers. They kissed passionately for long minutes before the need for air became an issue and they broke apart.
Resting his forehead against hers and looking into her emerald pools, Michael let his breathing return to normal. “Why don’t you go and take a bath while I get dinner ready?”
Maria pouted at him. “Aren’t you going to join me? That bath looks too big for just little ol’ me,” she joked.
“Well you could always just have a shower for now and we could christen the tub together later,” he offered.
“Now you’re talking.” She dropped a light kiss onto his lips before moving out of his embrace and heading out of the room.
“Wait a sec,” he called out to her. When she turned around to face him, she saw that he was holding a wrapped gift out to her.
Michael gave her what she could only describe as a naughty smirk. “It’s one of your gifts. I just figured if you wanted to show your appreciation to me for arranging this place for us, that you might consider opening this one after your shower.”
“Oh really? You’ve got me all intrigued, Spaceboy,” she said raising a perfectly shaped eyebrow at him before taking the square shaped package out of his hands.
He watched her walk out of the room, exaggerating the sway of her hips as she did so and he chuckled. As he made his way into the kitchen to get started on their meal, he was glad that he had been able to put a smile on her face by organising this for them.
The last few months had been hard on all of them, but especially him and Maria. After she had revealed she was leaving Roswell to be with him, all he had wanted to do was find some place where they could be alone so they could talk amongst other things. Instead, they had had to make do with travelling in a cramped van with the others for a couple of days before Max was willing to let them stop at a motel and get some proper rest and food inside them.
The whole group had been more exhausted than they had realised and they ended up staying at an out of the way motel for three days before once again getting back on the road. Those three days would always mean something special to both him and Maria as they had really talked and shown each other how they felt about everything. The grin on his face grew even wider when he recalled how the two of them had spent practically the whole of those three days making love.
The boiling water on the stove drew Michael’s attention back to the present and he quickly added the pasta to the pan giving it a stir before turning the heat down slightly. As he waited for it to cook, he chopped the vegetables for the salad and added them to the bowl before adding the dressing he knew Maria liked.
While he was doing that in the kitchen, Maria was drying herself off in the bedroom with a big, fluffy towel and she savoured the feel of the warm fabric. The towels she had been used to these past few months weren’t the most comfortable things and the fact that Michael had remembered to include something so simple, well it warmed her heart and made her realise that he did think of her.
After drying off, she moisturised her skin with the lotion she found on the dresser and she realised that he’d also remembered to get her favourite. The familiar scent of honeysuckle made her smile as she massaged it into her skin. She was just about to open her overnight bag when she remembered Michael’s words about wearing what was in the gift-wrapped package and she went to retrieve it from where she had placed it on the bed. It took her a few seconds to rip off the wrapping paper and lift the lid of the flat white box and she giggled when she saw what was inside it. Trust Spaceboy, she thought to herself before slipping the items on.
Meanwhile in the kitchen, Michael was carrying their plates over to the small table which had already been laid and he was just about to call out to her when he looked up and saw her standing in the doorway. He frowned when he saw her wearing one of his button up shirts. His mouth opened a few times as if he wanted to say something but he seemed to think better of it and laughing lightly, she decided to make things easy on him.
“Don’t worry baby, you’ll get to unwrap me later. I am so hungry and that smells so good I figured I’d only get to eat anything if I covered myself up.”
“Is that so? Are you saying I have no control or something?”
“Yep, I know you too well by now, Michael.”
“Well I’ll show you control,” he teased. Walking over to her, he bent his head and took her lips in a fierce kiss but broke it off when he knew she expected him to go even further. Taking her hand in his, he led her over to the table and he pulled her chair out for her. “What would you like to drink?”
“You’ll pay for that later,” she told him as she took her seat. “What have we got?”
“There’s sparkling apple juice, Cherry Coke, orange juice or water.”
“Ooh, I’ll have the sparkling apple juice.”
“Okay.” He grabbed the bottle from the fridge and poured a glass for both of them before taking a seat opposite her.
Over dinner they chatted about this and that, trying to keep things light but every now and then their eyes would lock and they would gaze at each other intently. Finally, they finished eating and Michael busied himself with collecting their dishes and putting them into hot water to soak.
Maria watched him while she finished sipping her juice and getting up from her chair, she walked over to him and rested her head on his back while her arms snaked around his waist.
“Why don’t you leave the dishes until the morning? I don’t want us wasting any of the time we have alone doing mundane stuff.”
Wiping his hands on the dish towel beside the sink, he then turned and placed his hands on her hips. “You’re right, we shouldn’t waste a second.”
Giving her a soft kiss on the lips, he took her small hand in his larger one and led her out of the kitchen and down the hall to the bedroom. Raising a hand, he used his powers to light the candles that were scattered throughout the room. Using his powers once again, he started a fire in the fireplace and that added to the soft glow casting shadows on the walls.
“This is so perfect, Michael.”
“I’m just glad you’re happy. I know the past few months haven’t been easy and I...”
“Shh,” she whispered placing a finger against his lips. “I don’t want us talking about any of that. We’re fine and I just want to enjoy the time we have alone. Agreed?”
He kissed her fingertip and nodded. “Agreed. So, do I get to unwrap my present now?”
“Mmm, that depends. Have you been a good boy this year?”
Taking her hands in his, he walked backwards until he hit the bed and he sat down on the edge and had her standing between his legs. “You tell me, Maria? Have I been good?” He asked giving her a wink.
She couldn’t help blushing at the way he was looking at her but she found herself nodding. “Yeah,” she breathed. “You’ve been very good.”
His fingers toyed with the buttons of the shirt she was wearing. “So can I?”
Her mouth was so dry she couldn’t speak so she merely nodded her head and she held her breath as his fingers slowly unfastened each button starting from the top and working downwards. Finally all the buttons were undone and he eased the sides of the shirt apart and he couldn’t help staring at what lay underneath. He knew as soon as he’d seen it in the store that it would look great on her but he didn’t know it would look this amazing.
The red satin bra with the white fur trim and the matching thong complimented her skin tone perfectly and he couldn’t take his eyes off her. His eyes kept wandering up and down her body, paying particular attention to her breasts which were barely being contained within the silky fabric. Without thinking, one of his hands reached out and his fingers trailed over each plump mound peeking over the fur trim.
Maria closed her eyes as she savoured his light touch and she moved in closer. “Michael...please...” she pleaded.
“I am touching you.”
Taking his hand in hers, she placed it directly over one of her breasts and covered it with her own and squeezed. “More.”
Michael complied with her request and as he gently squeezed and kneaded her breast through the bra, he used his other hand to remove the unbuttoned shirt she still wore. She helped him with his task and a second later the garment was on the floor. Changing hands, he repeated his ministrations on her other breast while his free hand roamed around her hip before arriving at her bottom. He kneaded and massaged the baby soft skin and he watched her head fall back as she enjoyed his actions.
“You look so beautiful, Maria.” He told her as he watched the rapturous expression on her face. “I love you.”
Her eyes opened and she stared at him for a moment before she broke into a big smile. “I love you too...more than you’ll ever know.”
“Come here,” he instructed before he lay back onto the bed and a second later she fell on top of him and their mouths found each other. They kissed desperately; their lips, tongues and teeth devouring each other with unbridled passion.
Lifting off him slightly but without breaking their kiss, Maria’s hands trailed between them and she made quick work of unbuttoning Michael’s shirt and pulling it apart so she could feel his heated skin against her own.
“You feel so good,” she told him as she ground her lower body against his and she smiled against his lips when she heard him moaning her name.
“God, you do too. I want to see you...all of you.”
“Okay.” She shifted her position so she was straddling his waist and she watched as he raised himself up on his elbows. Moving her hands behind her, she unfastened the bra and slowly drew it away from her body. Leaning forward, she brought her breasts close to his mouth and she could feel herself growing even wetter with just the anticipation of what his hot mouth would feel like sucking on her.
Michael watched with awe and as soon as she moved over him, he sucked one of her nipples into his mouth, letting his tongue circle it. When he grazed his teeth against the sensitive nub, she grabbed his head with one of her hands and held him tightly to her. He repeated the action a few more times before switching to her other breast and doing the same to it.
As he was playing with her, Maria was rubbing her lower body against him and she ached to have him deep inside her, filling her entirely. It had been a few days since they had last been together intimately and she was so frustrated. Her fingers trailed along his chest, stopping to pinch his nipples, and before long they arrived at his belt and she managed to undo it using just one hand. As soon as she had unzipped his pants, her hand delved inside to touch his hot, throbbing flesh and the growl he released reverberated through her.
“Oh...oh god Michael...I-I need you.”
The words had only just left her mouth before he flipped them over and had her pinned to the bed. His mouth kissed all over her face before trailing down her jaw, her throat and then her neck where he sucked furiously. He was determined to leave his mark.
Maria’s fingernails raked across his scalp and down to the back of his neck as she held him tightly to her. He moved further south and scattered kisses all along her shoulders and collarbone before once more arriving at her breasts where he cupped and massaged them. His fingers plucked and pinched her nipples which caused her to cry out with pleasure and total abandonment.
As she had succeeded in unfastening his pants, they hung low on his hips and bringing her feet into play, she managed to pull them down even more so that his naked cock was rubbing against her panty-covered mound. The sensation of his hardened flesh sliding against the satin was driving her wild and she was whimpering with need. Tugging on his hair until he looked up at her, she told him what she wanted with her eyes and he smiled in response.
Hooking his thumbs into the sides of the thong, Michael peeled it down her slim hips and thighs until he had got it off and he tossed it to the floor. Sliding further down, he flicked his tongue over her clit which had her arching up off the bed and he repeated it a couple more times until she was practically screaming.
“Now Michael! Please...I need you inside me...”
Kissing his way up her body, he watched her writhing under him and he teased her further by saying, “Thanks for wearing the gift I got you. Did you like it?”
“I-I loved it. You can thank me by putting this inside me right now,” she said touching his cock. “I...I can’t wait anymore, Michael.”
Giving her one last smirk, he bent his head to hers and thrust his tongue inside her mouth at the same time as he thrust his cock inside her moist depths. They kissed frantically as their lower bodies met each other stroke after delicious stroke. Maria’s legs wrapped around Michael’s waist and she tilted her pelvis up so that he slid even further inside her and she moaned loudly at the added sensation. For some reason, this felt even better than she remembered. Every single cell in her body seemed to be tingling and she couldn’t get enough of it. She couldn’t get enough of him.
Michael bore his weight on his forearms as he looked down at her and he could tell that she was nearing her climax so he began to speed up his thrusts. He was almost there too and he wanted them to cum together. He shifted his angle slightly so that his pubic bone was directly pressing into her clit on each downstroke and within seconds she was screaming his name as she exploded into a mind-numbing orgasm. A couple of moments later he came, her name falling from his lips and somehow his climax caused her to cum again.
Not wanting to collapse on top of her, he gently turned them so that he was lying on the bottom with Maria sprawled all over him. She looked to be completely boneless and he smiled knowing he was the cause of her present state.
“You okay?” He finally asked when his breathing had returned to some semblance of normal.
“Oh, I’m way more than okay,” she said with a giggle and he pinched her ass in response. “Hey!”
“What? So, you really liked your gift?” He asked.
“It was perfect, Michael. You have really good taste.”
“Have you got me a gift?”
“You’re just going to have to wait until tomorrow to find out,” she teased before sucking on his Adam’s apple.
“Well, how ‘bout I give you the second part of your gift?” He asked a few moments later when he felt himself begin to grow hard again while he was still half inside her.
“Hmm, I think that’s a very good idea,” she said as she moved to straddle him and take him back inside her. As she rode him, she leaned forward and covered his mouth with hers and kissed him hard. Pulling back, she smirked at him and said, “Now Mr Guerin, what can I get you for Christmas?”
His hands tightened on her hips and he helped her ride him even harder. Looking
deep into her eyes, he replied, “I just want you.”
