She threw up the huge fluffy blanket over the feather mattress. The bedroom was lit with many soft candles. She wanted everything to be perfect for their first night together. She made sure the wood in the fireplace was the dry cedar to emit a lovely crackling sound and scent. At the bedside she placed two wine glasses and his favorite Cabernet. The hot water sparkled with scented bath salts and two white cotton robes were folded nearby. All was ready. She sat in the wingbacked chair and waited for his return. Only a few minutes till paradise found.
