This past weekend, Carl and I went on a mini getaway to his cabin in Kodiak, Alaska. I decided to come when he invited me. He told me that there is no internet, phone signals, and electricity (though he’s got a generator) on his cabin. He also told me that we were even gonna have to ride a boat to get to his cabin.
For those who don’t know, I’m a big city girl whom gets motion sickness from any water transportation. I also don’t handle cold weather well. But I knew it would be hard to not talk to him at all for about 3 days (I know I know), so I decided to go. Besides, I was actually looking forward to see how we would act towards each other without our phones. See if we’d kill each other or not…
Soon enough after I got there, I noticed the freshness of the air. So crisp and so much different than New Orleans! It took us more than one hour to get to his cabin. Mostly because he’s got to hook and unhook his boat, etc. Complicated stuff that I didn’t know, but I did know he looked damn manly doing it. The drive there was also very scenic. Too bad I didn’t see any bear… I did, however, see a harbor seal, a baby deer, bald eagles from far away, and sea otters.
Once we got into the cabin and got our stuff up there, Carl started a fire because my southern ass was freezing and my toes were numb. Again, he looked damn manly doing it. I certainly had the pleasure watching him carrying the logs with his muscular arms & forearms, and staring at datass while he was starting the fire… Christ. Anyway. I found it such a turn on knowing that he’s really good at doing, you know, living-in-the-woods kinda stuff. I’m always into masculine and manly men. Carl has got it all.
Long story short, we didn’t kill each other. Hence why I’m able to write this while I’m flying back to New Orleans. We ate home cooked meals (by me, so it was nothing special lol), sippin on courvoisier cognac by the fire place while we deepen our connection, watched game of thrones, laughed, joked, made love, and everything in between.
It was just so nice. There was no need of internet or social media when I had the perfect companion. I have never had someone who cares so much about me, it shows. I love the way he cares, even with the simplest little thing, I can feel his caring. I love the way he gaze into my eyes with his deep blue eyes - I get lost in them. I love his kind facial expression that melts me. I love the way he touch me, caress me. It’s electrifying. And the way he’s so honest with me whether I like to hear his honesty or not. The way he’s so open to share his feelings and thoughts with me, making me not the only vulnerable one in our relationship.
I love the way he loves me.
I can’t wait to see him in Seattle next time (as in 4 days. Can’t wait). The end.
