Journey Through the Heart
by Rhiannon and AJ
"How can you laugh at this?" Abbey asked incredulously. "This isn't funny."
"I'm not laughing." Jed replied.
"But you want to."
"Actually, I'm wanting to do something else right about now." Jed grinned, pulling Abbey into his arms.
"What would that be?"
"This." Jed answered as he thrust his lips upon hers.
"Mmm," was all Abbey managed to say when the very passionate kiss came to an end.
Jed reached a hand up to Abbey's face and began to brush the fallen pieces of hair out of her face. "Would you care to dance?"
"Brennan Jacob! Didn't I say to go to your room?" Abbey caught her youngest child at the top of the stairs, out of the corner of her eye.
"Aw, crap!" He cried out, standing up. "Crap, crap, crap. Why did I have to get caught? Crap, crap, crap." He replied as he disappeared into his room.
"Now, what was that?" Abbey asked.
"I asked if you would care to dance."
"I'd love to, Mr. Pres-"
"Jed." He corrected her.
Later on in the evening, Jed was sitting on the couch in Abbey's living room. And Abbey was curled up like a cat, with her head resting in Jed's lap. They had spent a good ten minutes like this, in silence. But that silence was destined to be broken.
"You got plans for the weekend?" Jed asked.
"No, not really." Abbey said. "Why?"
"I was just... would you and the kids like to come to Rome with me? We're going there for... something. And I'd really like for you to join me."
Abbey sat up at this. She hadn't expected this... "Uh..." She muttered.
"It's okay. You don't have to answer me right now. Just promise me you'll think about it."
"I promise." Abbey replied before Jed's lips found their way to hers... again.
When it ended, he smiled. "I do believe I found myself a brand new hobby."
