Arranged mariege part six

Jeny was excited about getting maried.all her life,she was told her mariege would be aranged by her family. The fact that she could not chose her future husband did not brother her. She kind of liked the mystery. 

He was not what shr expected. She was skepitcal at first. She was not sure that this could work.  

She decided to give it a chance.  She found that she did like him. Despite there differences, she suspected that they could make a go of this.  

She fell alseep that night in his arms. She woke up the next moring. She layed in bed for a bit. It was clear that she was not going to fall back to sleep. 

He was still asleep. She decided to get up. She tried to tip toe out of bed without being heard.  She wanted to let him wake up on his own. 

She made it to the smal kitchen-living room. She made the watter for cofee. She then put the cofe in. Then she truned the cofee maker on. 

She made sausage eag breakfast sadnwitches. She was not surety when he was waking up bit it was stil fearly early. She read over Romans one while she was cooking. She was good at multi tasking. 

He came into the dining area looking like a zombie. “Your not awake are you love?”she asked. “Not really. ” he said. She laughed. “Cofee is ready. I got sausage mufins done.” she said. “Cool sounds good.” he said. 

She laughed. “You can sleep in longer of you want to hunnie.”she told him. “Oh no! I’m fine. I am beyond the point of faling back asleep. ” he said.”i am not concinced of that but ok.”she said.

“So what are our plans for the day?” he asked. ” well i thought we would go in the canoe again. ” she said.” cool. Sounds good. ” he said. “Then play some basketball. Then there is a cofee house that has jazz night. ” she said.

“Ok. ” he said. “Not keen on the jazz thing ?”she asked.” its fine. ” he said.” your sure?” she asked. “Of course. ” he said. “Ok. Just making sure. ” she said. 

He enjoyed the sausage sandwitch. After a few more cups of cofee, he was much more awake then he had been. He felt like he was able to function more then he had been. 

“I am awake now!” he said.  “Thats good to hear. ” she said. “I did not hear you get up. ” he said. ” that was what i figured. I was trying not to wake you. ” she said. “You succeeded. ” he reaplied. “I am glad of that. ” she said. 

“Breakfast was amazing.  Thank you.” he said. “No problem. It did come out good.” she acknowledged.  They put everything away and thew away the trash. 

They got ready for there day.  They got dressed. They headed for the beach area. He paid for the rentle. He came out. They went to the canoe. He helped her in to the small craft. They got the life jackets on and took out the paddles. The craft lunched.  

They went out a bit.”this is so calm.so peaceful.  I love it out hear!” she said.”i can tell. I do too. ” he said. “I have always liked the watter. “She said. 

“I like being on the watter. Just not in the water.  ” he said. “You dont like to swim?” she asked. “No. swiming is not really not my thing. I like being in a boat. ” he said. “Ah. I love everything about water.  From being in a boat to swimming.  I love it. ” she said.

“I will watch you swim from the shore!” he told her. She chuckled. “Ok. ” she answered. 

They stayed in the water for quite a while. Then they went back to shore. They returned the canoe. They walked hand in hand though the property. 

They went to the basketball court.  They started playing basketball. They started to play. She loved sports. They got conpetitve but it was all in fun. They played a few games. She won some, he won some as well. There were a lot of laughs. 

“You give me quite a work out. ” he said. “I realy get in to my game.  ” she declared. “I can tell. ” he said. She high fived him. “Still friends? ” she asked in a playful mannor.he chuckled. “Still friends! ” he said. He hugged her. Then he kissed her. She was not expecting that. 

They did not kiss alot. He did not seam to be too keen on physical contact. They frequently held hands. She was surprised he kissed her in the open.  Perhaps he was easing in to all of this. 

He was a mystery to her.  He was serious. He was stoic. He seem to vailue logic above emotion. Not quite vulcan but close. He seemed to be a student of plato. 

At the same time, he was a very funny man. He had a dry sence of humor. He liked to laugh. He liked to joke around. She was not sure how to interpret him. She had not quite figured him out. That was ok.she liked a good mystery.  He was definently that. 

They went back to the cabin. He grilled hot dogs and hambergers. The cabin had a small fire pit outside the cabin. She took off her shoes. 

They eat outside in a picnic table . “these are really good. “She said. “I am so glad your not a vegiterian or vegan! ” he remarked. She laughed. “I like vegetables.  I am not a carnivore like some people i know. I eat meat. I would not like just fruits and vegetables.  I want a verity in my diet. ” she said. 

“I dont know how i would handle it if you were vegetarian.  ” he admitted. “I dont think that that would go over well. ” she responded. “Probably not. ” he admitted.  They laughed. 

“If you were, we would figure it out. ” he said. “I am sure we would.  The good thing is that that is not a concern. ” she said. “True. ” he said. 

They hung out at the cabin for a while. Then they changed and got ready to go to the cofee house. 

She hoped that she was not pushing him too far by draging him to this. Pethaps this was a bridge too far. He did put her in charge of there days activities. A mariege involves two people. She hoped that he would not be miserable at the. Event. She considered not going. She did want to. She decided to go along with it.  It could be interesting. 

She had no idea what he was thinking. Some times she wished that she had telepathy.  Other times she did not . She wished she did right now. How far could she push him? What was his limit?  

They got ready to go. They changed cloths. He wore a polo shirt and tan pants. She wore a pink blouse and green skirt and flip flops. They headed out. 

They got into the car.  She drove this time. The cofee house was not that far away from the cabin. They parked at the parking lot. They got out of the car. They walked to the building. They went inside. 

They paid the smal entry fee. He got a hazelnut cofee and she got french vanila. She suspected he might be nervous about all this. She hopped that this was not a huge mistake. She hoped that this would not produce a big fight or a small one for that matter.  She tried not to burrow trouble. She did not want to create a conflict that did not exist and might not. She calmed down. 

The jazz band started.  She loved it. There were several grouos. They were all very good. She was realy enjoying herself. She got a bit caught up in her own happiness. .she wondered how he was doing. She hoped that he was ok.  She wondered what was going though his mind. 

The show lasted a couple hours.  They left walking hand in hand. “I hope that you were not too bored?” she remarked. “No. It was not too bad. ” he said. “I had a lot of fun. ” she said.”i can tell. I am glad you had fun. ” she said. 

“Was it really ok?” she asked. He squeezed her hand. “Of course. This is your honey moon. I want you to enjoy yourself. ” he told her. “Your going to have to do this again sometime and again.  ” she admonished him. “I know that jen. I am fine with that. ” he said. 

“It was ok we did this?” she asked. “Of course.  ” he assured her. “Ok. Just making sure. ” she told him. They got into the car. The car headed back to the cabin. 

They got ready for bed. She put tank top snd pj bottoms.  He wore shorts. She put on a star trek episodes on her lap top. They cuddled while watching. 

“So are you sick of me yet?” she asked.  He smiled. “No. Not at all. Are you sick of me?” he asked. She kissed him . Then she smiled.  

After a while they decided to go to bed. She was getting used to be maried to him. She was enjoying him. She felt that they would be a good couple. She was glad of that. After a while they both fell asleep.
