First Romantic Getaway
Jim got busy at his desk making some phone calls and got a hold of his brother Steven and said, “Steven do you still have that cabin up in the woods?”
“Of course I still have it. I love it there, why?” Steven asked.
“I was wondering if I could use it for the next three days,” Jim asked.
Steven smiled as he answered, “Sure, big bro. Who is the lucky woman?”
“Well, that’s the thing. I think I should tell you that it’s not a woman,” Jim whispered since he was in the bullpen.
“Holy shit, are you talking about Blair? You’re taking Blair?” Steven asked.
“Yes, does that change anything?”
“No, that doesn’t change a thing. I’ll stop by and give you the key tonight. You guys can use it for as long as you’d like. It’s really nice if you remember. The hot tub is kept up all the time, so you can hot tub, you can swim in the heated pool and do whatever else comes to mind,” Steven kidded.
“Thanks, Steven. You’re the best.”
“Does dad know yet?” Steven wondered.
“Not yet, and I hope to keep it that way for awhile. I want us to be alone for a while without dad asking all the questions he’ll no doubt ask.”
“I don’t blame you, Jim. I’ll see you tonight.”
Jim got off the phone and looked around to see if anyone had listened to his call, but no one had. This was a good day. Now it was time to go and beg for more time off from Simon. After all, he had like five weeks vacation coming.
The meeting with Simon went well. Jim told him it was his senses and they had to do tests, so they would need a week instead of three days. Simon agreed to it and Jim got ready to go home.
Jim got home and fixed some dinner for himself and waited for Steven to show up and for Blair to call. At 6:30 there was a knock at the door and Jim opened it to Steven standing there with a big smile on his face.
“I can’t tell you how happy I am for you and Blair. He’s one of the nicest guys I’ve ever met. He was really nice about getting us all back together, so I think that he knew all along,” Steven said.
“Can I have the keys before you say it’s something like fate, karma or kismet?”
Steven laughed and handed the keys to Jim. “I can’t stay Jim, I just wanted to drop them off and give you a hard time. See you soon.”
“Thanks again, Steven. Blair is going to be thrilled with you.”
Steven walked out the door and Jim locked up for the night. He waited for his phone call and it came about 8:30. “Hi Chief.”
“Hey, big guy. How are you doing?”
“I’ll be doing better tomorrow when you’re home. Are you all right tonight? Did anything happen at the panels?” Jim asked.
I’m fine and nothing happened. They still partied and didn’t go to the panels at all. What a bunch of losers. So anyhow, I’m going to bed and getting up early, so I’ll see you tomorrow.”
“I have a surprise for you,” Jim said.
“Man, you can’t say that to a person on the telephone. Now what is the surprise?” Blair demanded to know.
“If you must know, I’m taking you somewhere for a week, starting tomorrow as soon as you’re off the plane,” Jim said smiling.
“Oh, that is so cool. Our first romantic getaway. It is romantic, right?” Blair wondered.
“Oh yeah, it’s going to be great. Hot tub, swimming and privacy to boot,” Jim didn’t want to tell him any more then that.
“Okay, I’m going to wait for my surprise. Are you packing a suitcase for me?” Blair asked.
“I’m doing it now. Don’t worry, Blair, I’m taking care of everything. Oh, could you call me in the cell phone parking lot, because I’m going to have suitcases and food in the back of the truck. I don’t want to leave them out where anyone can take everything,” Jim said.
“I’ll call you as soon as I get my luggage. Talk to you tomorrow, babe,” Blair said happily.
Jim made a kissing sound into the phone that cracked Blair up. “I do believe you really did miss me.”
“You’ll never know. Now get to sleep, get on the plane and get home,” Jim ordered.
“Got it. Night, Jim.”
Both men hung up the phone and Jim began packing things in Blair’s suitcase. He couldn’t believe how unorganized Blair was. It was taking forever to find things. He found Blair’s swimsuit with his blue jeans in the drawer. Jim just sighed and continued to pack the bags. When he was done, he went shopping for the groceries that they would need for the week long trip. He got everything put in bags except for the refrigerated stuff, which he kept in the refrigerator. Jim knew he was going to find it hard to sleep with all the excitement he was feeling. This trip was just what they needed. They needed time away from everyone. Jim was glad that he thought of it.
Jim waited in the cell phone parking lot and Blair called right when Jim thought he would. Jim whipped up in front and saw Blair standing there smiling, his cute fucking smile and Jim melted right there on the spot.
He parked, jumped out and took Blair into his arms. They kissed and hugged and kissed some more. Then he put Blair’s suitcase in the back of the truck and said, “Get in, Chief. We’re on our way.”
The cabin was up in the wooded area of Cascade, but not too far from town, so they could get back in no time if needed.
Blair talked Jim’s ear off the entire way to the cabin and finally when they arrived, Blair said, “This is where we’re staying?”
“Yeah, isn’t it great?” Jim beamed with happiness.
“Whoa, I can’t believe we’re staying here. This is nice,” Blair jumped out of the truck and started to get the suitcases from the back.
“Slow down, Blair. I want to get the groceries in there first and then we’ll take our clothing.”
Blair helped him take all of the groceries into the gorgeous cabin. Blair just kept looking around and saying, “Whoa.”
Jim laughed a couple of times and was happy that he had impressed Blair to use such big words.
They then went out and got the suitcases and unpacked first thing after the groceries were put away.
“Jim, where did you find this place?” Blair asked.
“It’s Steven’s and I asked him if we could use it?” Jim said.
“Oh man, you told Steven about us?”
“Yeah, that’s all right isn’t it?” Jim asked suddenly nervous.
“Yes, its fine, but I’m just surprised is all. This place is beautiful.”
I told Simon we needed a week off for Sentinel testing. I know, I shouldn’t have, but I wanted to have some time alone with you,” Jim said.
“Works for me, man. This is fantastic. I adore you. Have I mentioned lately how romantic you are?” Blair asked.
Jim smiled and said, “You’ve never said that.”
“Well, let it be said now. You’re one romantic man and I’m damn lucky to have you,” Blair confessed.
“God, I love you,” Jim said as he pulled Blair into his arms.
“I say, hot tub later, bed now,” Blair suggested.
Jim smiled and asked, “Will you fuck me?”
“Oh man, you know it. Get your hind end into the bedroom right now.”
All that could be heard in the cabin were sounds of love and joy from both men. They hadn’t been together for almost three days, so they were making up for it.
When they were through, they lay in each others arms and talked for an hour. Blair finally said, “How about the hot tub now?”
“My butt’s sore enough to go for that,” Jim teased.
“Did I hurt you, Jim?”
“No, I was teasing. Let’s go to the hot tub. It’s got a six foot wall all the way around it, so I say we do it in the nude,” Jim reasoned.
“I agree. Blair walked out buck naked and slipped into the hot tub. “Jim, it’s super hot. It feels great.”
Jim brought the towels out since Blair had forgotten all about them and slid into the hot tub moaning with satisfaction.
“This is the life, Jim.”
“Tell me about it. And we’re here for a week. You might be sick of just me by then,” Jim teased.
“Jim, I never get sick of you. This is going to be the best week of our lives.”
“Glad to hear it, Chief. I’m enjoying myself already.”
Both men knew that they had a week to do whatever they wanted to do. There was going to be a lot of sex in there because that’s what Jim wanted to do. Blair didn’t argue the point.
Never let it be said that Jim Ellison wasn’t a romantic man. He was there to prove it over and over again to Blair.
