Chapter 23 Lunch Date (Kinda)
- I wake up from a dream that I forget as soon as my eyes open, to the sound of a buzzing noise, followed by a television show jingle I’m all too familiar with. The sun hits my eyes and based on the position, I’d say it’s the afternoon. I sit up in bed and lazy Baxter shifts to his back and stretches his limbs out with a big yawn, only to roll back over with a little annoyed hmph, almost as if he’s appalled that I have the audacity to disturb his slumber. I giggle and rub him on the head. “Come on boy, we have to get up.”
- His Royal Highness opens one eye, looks at me, then lets a large puff of air out of his nostrils then rolls away from me and decides he’s going to continue to sleep. I roll my eyes at his spoiled antics an lean over to grab my phone off the side table only to realize it hasn’t been unpacked from my purse. Actually, I don’t remember anything from last night other than falling asleep on the plane. I get up from the bed and realize I’m still in my comfy airline clothes with a sigh of relief. At least I’m not naked, which means nothing happened between us last night that I don’t remember. I also notice that Daniel is nowhere to be found, but the other side of the bed is ruffled, so he definitely slept beside me last night. I reach into my bag and pull out my phone to see it’s ten minutes to noon. Wow, I slept a long time.
