I hope that everyone’s Christmas started so wonderful as mine did.
Yesterday during the day I have been working as normal and already some days before that I had to promise that I would not leave for home before 4:00 pm. Somewhere during the day Marion would come to Heemskerk and of course it was very clear she would have a surprise for me. Although I made many jokes to people about not being allowed to go to my own home, I was very curious and this all made me feel very good.
Yes, the last hour at work felt as without end. But finally I could go home. Luckily there were no problems with the trains, so I arrived quickly in Heemskerk. As promised I sent Marion an SMS to tell that I was at the railroad station and that I would be with 10 minutes at my apartment.
When I walk home from the station, I can see the building with my apartment from a large distance. My apartment looked all dark and I started to wonder if Marion didn’t arrive yet. And of course that was directly this worry if nothing bad had happened… a car accident of something like that. But then I realized that when the lamella blinds of my apartment are closed and there is no bright light burning, the apartment really looks dark from the outside.
When I entered the entrance of my apartment there was a big paper on the door to living room telling me welcome home and that there were good clothes waiting on the bed and that I maybe should take a shower first (from the entrance there is also a door to the bathroom, which is connected again to the bedroom). So as asked I took a shower and dressed up for the evening. Luckily there was no tie, because I really dis;ole those.
After I was all dressed up, I knocked on the door from the bedroom to the living room. And I was allowed to enter.
Recently I have been reading the article in a scientific magazine that men are “programmed” to react on women. Well, I know now that this is true…
When I entered the living room and saw Marion, I felt my jaw dropping to the ground and started to drool on the spot. So beautiful!!!! Marion was wearing this long satin-alike dark purple dress. Her arms and shoulder free. Most of her back was free as well. And then the rather deep neckline. Of course high heels and dark stockings. To complete it all, her make-up just I like it so much. Specially her eyes, the way she gave them this extra enchanting effect.
No way around it, I was knocked completely from my feet….
But that was not all. The dinner table was very beautiful decorated. I loved how the was decorated with larger and smaller candles. Also all kind of Christmas related things were used as decoration.
In the middle of the table was the plate with deer. It smelled so wonderful. In a very nice way the rest of the table was decorated with bowls and plates with salads, sauces, baked potatoes, baguettes and much more.
The wine that was served was a Muscadet. Maybe not the most perfect wine to go along with deer, but I know how much Marion loves this wine. And as I like it as well, it was more then okay.
We spend more then 2 hours at the dinner table…. and I have to admit, again it was proven that Christmas Eve can be so much more then special!!
To those that knew the complete story of how Marion really became closer… the story repeated its self!!
Tonight it will be my turn to cook and my dish will be concentrated around pearl hen (“parelhoen”).
A Merry Christmas to all of you…. And that 2011 may be a good year for everyone!
