here is a little story about some site seeing that got “emotional”.
The View … With a Happy Ending –
Friday, July 8th
Tomorrow was the end of their honeymoon. They would return home to Southern Pines, back to regular life. But the end of their time in The Outer Banks was the furthest thought from Rose’s mind just then as she sat down in a chair at a local salon.
That morning, she had removed the pink polish from her fingernails and toenails in preparation for a different kind of … pampering she would receive that day. This whole week had been exactly what she hoped it would be. But it turned out to be even more than she had expected. What a blessing … a honeymoon with welcomed surprises.
That final afternoon Rose spent at Lavishing Elegance, a spa and salon in Kitty Hawk, NC. Emmitt booked and prepaid her appointment, but left the details to her. He wouldn’t have been able to tell the difference between an aroma dry wrap and a salt glow exfoliation … or a Swedish massage and a Lomi Lomi Bamboo massage … or anything else on their menu of choices. When she realized there was a couples massage package, she tried to get him to join her. But he flatly refused and though she was snickering at how adamant he was when saying no, she didn’t press the issue. In fact, she was quite happy to have finally found one of his limits as up to that point, it seemed he had none.
“Oh, he’s handsome,” the one spa lady said as Rose was eased back into the reclining chair – wrapped in the softest bath robe she had ever worn. “Is he coming back any time soon?”
“Who?” Rose asked, looking at the lady with confusion.
“The guy who brought you in here,” the lady said, tilting the back of the chair further down as Rose’s neck came to rest on the sink edge.
“Oh,” Rose said with a smile that grew, soon sizing up to meet the glow on her face. “I’m sure my Cowboy Daddy will be back for me.”
“Your Cowboy Daddy?” the lady asked, not understanding what was meant by calling him that – Rose’s eyes growing big and wide.
