For the ADULT Part 20 go here
The chauffeur smiled at the looks
on their faces as he pulled into the drive of a two storey town
house, with a modest front garden and trees all across it's front
boundary. It was an oldish house, and looked to have three or
four bedrooms. The veranda was dark oak, as was the front door
and all the timbers that showed in-between the stone work. Neither
of the couple could really believe what they were seeing.
"Have a nice life,"
their driver said as they piled out of the car, and with a tip
of his hat he was gone.
"This is incredible,"
was all Richie could say as they walked up the steps to their
new home, "it's so big."
As far as the young Immortal
was concerned, a house with more than three room was huge. Beren
just gave him the keys with a surprised smile that seemed stuck
on her face. The first thing they came across was an envelope
pinned to the front door. With a delicate hand, Beren reached
for it and slowly tore it open.
From all of us to our dearest
friends, we wish you every happiness. This is our gift to you,
something we could do together. Don't bother to call, the phone's
not connected yet, just go in and enjoy. We'll see you tomorrow
when we make sure you make it to the airport. All our love ...
And at the bottom was everyone's
Beren looked as if she was about
to cry, and to hide the emotion that was clouding Richie's vision,
he opened the door. It swung wide onto a dark hallway. The bride
was all ready to walk over the threshold, tradition forgotten
in her joy, but before she could do so she found herself swept
into a strong pair of arms.
"Can't have you stepping
in," her new husband said with a cheerful grin.
The realisation of the fact that
he was really now her husband just about pushed her over the edge.
She was so happy that she could no longer hold back the tears,
and as they stepped into their new home she sobbed into Richie's
shoulder. He in return just held her very tight.
Each door had a note of it's
own pinned to it, and once Beren had recovered the couple went
to the living room first.
Greetings love birds,
the bar's well stocked, and the
champagne is one ice. Make sure you have a party as soon as you
get back from the honeymoon, because there's some good stuff in
there. Sorry we've relegated you couch to the back room, it just
didn't go with our vision. Enjoy, and much love,
Madi and Adam
Apologies were in the region
of completely absurd as the happy couple viewed the room. The
three piece suit was real leather; the modest stereo from Richie's
apartment now had several added extras; there was a large television
in one corner with a video stowed underneath it; there was indeed
a bucket containing champagne on a bar which filled one corner
of the room; there were beautiful pictures on all the walls and
a mirror above the fire place; and the carpet was a deep blue
thick pile joy to walk on.
Beren and Richie clung to each
other looking slightly stunned.
The next room appeared to be
Working from home is a new fad,
and it's really time Beren had a chance to educate her illiterate
husband. All the mod cons, and the modem will work once the phone's
connected. Enjoy you two.
Karina and Chris
There was a brand new PC on the
desk; a large number of various subject books on lots of shelves;
videos on another wall including the Video Karmasutra which Richie
found highly amusing; and two filing cabinets.
The shock was beginning to wear
off, but the overflowing happiness was abounding.
Next came the kitchen, not a
small affair by any standards.
I hear you love to cook Richie,
well I hope this will serve your purposes. You wouldn't have liked
the old one.
Happiness to you both,
The oven was state of the art;
the fridge and freezer could have held enough food to feed an
army; the shelves and cupboards of oak, were well stocked with
everything from utensils to spices; there was every sort of cook
wear all over the place; and the tiles had been made up to a very
individual design. Richie had a suspicion that Greg had designed
The pair moved onto the back
Well I didn't have a lot of time,
but our mutual friends have an amazing number of contacts. Every
house deserves a games room, it livens up parties.
Many years of joy to you both,
There was a pool table, a pinball
machine and a games console in the corner. The old sofa looked
sort of out of place in amongst all the new equipment, but it
gave the place a homey sort of atmosphere. Both young people couldn't
help but let their eyes light up at the room. They even tried
out the games machine before they moved on.
There was a downstairs loo, but
they didn't linger there long and headed to the upper floor.
There was a sign on one door
that said main bedroom and they decided to leave that `til last.
Beren decided that she found the bathroom quite fascinating.
You didn't think I'd let them
have all the fun did you?
The whole room was done out in
avocado green, and all the metal work was unbelievably shinny.
The bath was huge and two people could have climbed in quite easily.
The couple grinned at each other as they both had the same thought.
There was a wash basin with a mirror; a shower unit; and a water
closet. All the fittings were in oak. The pair fled before they
The two back bedroom had the
same note on them.
I thought you may have guests
from time to time, and it's always good to impress those who come
to stay. Joy to you both,
Both rooms were almost identical,
but they were so exquisite. The beds were king size and had brass
ends, sculptured into a historic feel. Fleur de Lis designs adorned
all the material in the rooms, but where one had a blue background
the other was read. Each had a chest of draws and a wardrobe,
and large, framed fantasy scenes adorned the walls. There were
even crossed swords on either side of the adjoin wall.
There was one more room except
the main bedroom, and it was empty. The little plaque on the door
said "Junk room" with a big smilie next to it.
That left one more door to be
opened and Beren's hand was shaking as she reached for the brass
The most important room in the
house, well we expect you'll be thinking that for a while. There's
no substitute for a comfortable bed room. Enjoy bunnies,
Amanda and Duncan
The room was truly spectacular,
and the couple were surprised to find it had an identical bathroom
to that in the hall, ensuite. The bed was truly huge and filled
a good third of the room. What made Beren's heart just quit beating
was the fact that it was a four poster with a canopy of velvet
curtains. It was covered in almost black silk sheets, although
there was a large duvet rolled up on a linen chest. There were
two oak chairs with large comfortable looking cushions on them;
a walk in wardrobe; a large chest of draws, a full length mirror;
and the carpet was so thick it could trip someone up.
They really didn't need to say
anything to each other as they both looked around. The pair looked
at each other and Richie's eyes lit up with mischief.
"Well they did say we should
enjoy ourselves," he said with only one thought in his blue
Beren just grinned back.
"I'll go get the champagne,"
her husband told her and promptly tried to break the hundred meter's
record on the way to the lounge.
When he returned his wife had
one draw of the dresser open and there was an amused smile on
"Found something interesting?"
the man of her dreams enquired lightly.
"Oh, Amanda left us some
toys," she said with a laugh in her voice and drew out one
of the tamer items in the draws.
It was a silk scarf and when
Richie looked over his lover's shoulder he had to laugh.
"I'm not sure I know what
all of those are for," he said lightly and Beren turned and
threw her arms around him.
"Well we'll have plenty
of time to find out," the young woman told him with a large
smile. "There's a shower in there you know."
Her eyes flicked to the door
to the bathroom and there was a playful look in her gaze.
"I remember another shower,"
she said with an innocent bat of her eyelids.
"Oh really," the Immortal
said lightly, "where was that?"
"I think your memory's better
than that," was the quick reply and she danced out of his
It didn't take them long before
there were little piles of suds all over the bathroom.
