Virtual Lover…

She stood at the stove carefully sauteing minced garlic in olive oil till the garlic was golden, adding finely chopped onions, cans of tomatoes, a dab of tomato paste, salt, pepper, oregano and basil, deeply inhaling the fragrance of homemade marinara sauce.  After all, nothing was better than filling the kitchen with smells of cooking to fill his head with thoughts of love…

She stirred and tasted once more, then slid the pot lid on, turned the heat to low and set the timer to allow her sauce to simmer undisturbed while she ran upstairs to shower and and change.  She luxuriated in the feel of shampoo and conditioner, soaping on body wash to shave her legs smooth.

He’d been out of town on business and she’d missed his fun-filled ocean blue eyes, his warm smiles and most of all his warm body spooned against hers at night.  She knew he’d missed her, too, from all the texts and phone calls where they had exchanged loving, then suggestive and then increasingly x-rated ideas as their time apart grew longer.  But tonight he’d be home and she’d planned a cozy evening for two with scrumptious pasta and wine.

Pulling on a long silky top over leggings, she went back to the kitchen to check the sauce, adding pancetta, vodka and heavy cream and stirring penne noodles into the rapidly boiling salted water. Quickly draining the noodles when they were al dente, she added them to the sauce for her delectable Vodka Sauce alla Pasta, just as she felt his arms slide around her waist and turn her toward him.

Deep, dark eyes met blue eyes smoky with desire as the wonderful smells of dinner engulfed them and his lips captured hers in a kiss that spoke of longing and promises yet unfulfilled.  Kisses became more demanding, clothes were deemed unnecessary and the kitchen table was put to new purpose.  Wine and pasta would wait until later…

She typed the last line with satisfaction, then jumped up as she realized her pasta was boiling over in the pot, hissing as water splashed into the flames.

  4. The husband just got home from Florida. I got 1 maybe 2 phone calls. The text I got was, “I’m on the plane. Be home soon, call you when I land…” When he arrived, it was just after lunch and he looked like hell. Tired and bed head (no shower) just off to the airport for an early flight. I like your story much better. Is this what I was waiting for all these years…lol 🙂 I still love him too the moon ❤

    1. Thank, Meg. I’m thinking I want to maybe work in the writer’s story eventually. And maybe expand some into longer stories or chapters. I’m kind of liking these two!

      1. That’s a great idea. It would be interesting to see how or if this parallels her own life in any way. We readers always assume some level of autobiography from the author!

  11. Food mixed with romance ❤ will get me every time, especially if the man does the cooking! 😉 ;).
    Dee, my Italian still texts me every day but our twice monthly dates just seems to make me lack hope. (Every other weekend he has his two boys. xo
