As Anna washes her hands and looks over her makeup, she thinks about what Connor said before she left. It makes her feel a lot better that everything she did tonight worked out and that he was happy with how tonight went. Her telling him that she was pregnant was the best part though. Now she’s just ready to get back to their suite so that she can lay with him and eat their dessert. With that, she tears off a paper towel and dries her hands before moving back towards their table, smiling when she sees Connor looking around the restaurant. “Miss me?” she teases before opening the small folder holding the check and signs her name. It shocks her a little bit that he didn’t just sign it for her, but either way she doesn’t mind. Once her wallet is back into her purse, she looks up at Connor and grins. “Ready to go? I’d say we could walk back to the hotel but I think my feet would hate me if we did that.” Anna stands up and holds her hand out, waiting for him to take it before they exit the restaurant to go get a cab. As soon as one pulls up, she slides in before curling up against Connor again, leaning her head on his shoulder before moving to run her fingers over where his wedding band would be sitting if he had it on. “Maybe you should put that on when we get back to the room. What do you think?” She looks up and meets his eyes before doing something that he usually does. Anna brings his left hand up and kisses his ring finger before leacing them together. Adjusting her head on his shoulder, she kisses the side of his neck, then whispers into his ear. “What do you think we should do when we get back?”
Connor smiles when Anna sits back at the table, saying, “Of course I missed you. I like looking at you more than these other people.” Winking over at her, he watches as she signs the check and nods at her question before standing up with her. “I’d rather get you back to the room as quickly as possible. We can walk around some other time.” He kisses her head as they walk out of the restaurant and to the street, getting into a cab when it pulls up and holding her closer to him. Looking down at her when she mentions his wedding ring, he smiles and nods again. “I’d love to put it on. I’ve missed feeling it on my finger almost as much as I missed you. You should put yours on, too, baby.” He smiles slowly at the sound of her voice in his ear, squeezing her shoulder gently and closing his eyes. He chuckles softly because he knows she knows exactly what he thinks they should do when they get back. They just talked about having dessert and he remembers the look on her face when he was talking about what he could do with the ice cream. Licking his lips, he looks down at her and pecks hers before moving his lips to her ear. “I think I have the best idea of what I can do with this dessert. I’ve missed tasting you, Goldilocks. And you need to show me those shoes in action.” As he speaks, he looks over her head and down her body to the shoes she has on her feet. “You look better in them than I ever imagined you would. I think you’ll be keeping those on tonight,” he whispers before kissing her softly and quickly paying the driver when they pull back up outside of their hotel. He presses her against the elevator wall for a slow kiss as it goes up to their room, pulling away just as the doors open. Taking her hand, he pulls her to their room and pushes the door open before placing their bag of food just inside and picking her up before stepping into the room with her in his arms. “I’m so happy I’m home now, baby,” he says before kissing her again, letting the door shut behind them and walking her over to their bed.
“Oh? Well if it’ll remind you a little bit of home then we should definitely get it.” She smiles at him before glancing down at the menu, wondering which one she should get for herself. The waitress returns with the box and Anna orders both the whiskey cake and the cream pie before working on putting her leftovers in the box. “It would be useful. I guess we’ll just have to ration accordingly, won’t we?” Anna raises her own eyebrow like he does then winks because she understands what he’s hinting at. Even though the alcohol is most likely baked out of the cake, she’d rather not risk anything just in case. Once the leftovers are in the container, she moves around to grab her purse while laughing gently at his amused voice. “Oh, I’m sure you’ll eat it.” Anna can only imagine the things going on in his mind about how he can eat it off her body or something like that, not that she would mind either way. She’s missed doing things like that, even if he hadn’t been gone very long. As she pulls out her card, she smiles softly at him, setting everything onto the table before reaching over to squeeze his hand. “I’m looking forward to just being able to cuddle against you at night again. And I hope dinner was fantastic.” The waitress comes over to take the card and sets down their desserts along with a to-go bag. Anna stands up and places them in the bag before moving over to kiss him quickly. “I’ll be right back, okay?” After pecking his lips one more time, she walks over to use the restroom before they leave.
Connor finds himself smirking at Anna when she says that he’ll find ways of eating the desserts, knowing that her mind is probably exactly where his is. They’re always on the same page and he can’t wait to get her back to their room. He chuckles softly as she gets all of her food together in a to-go box. “Dinner was great, baby. You chose an awesome place and we’ll definitely be coming back here more before we leave and we’ll bring Callum here.” Watching her pay for dinner, he squeezes her hand back and adds, “Thank you. You greeted me in the best way. I thought I was surprising you.” He laughs softly and returns her kiss before nodding and watching her go to the bathroom. While he’s sitting there, he takes a moment to look at the cake in the box and forces himself not to try it before they get back to their room. He’s not sure how Anna always makes every celebration of theirs absolutely perfect, but this one is probably one of the best and most important that they’ve had. And he knows that their wedding is going to be no different. He may be like a lot of guys who don’t really understand all the planning of weddings and other events, but everything she told him she chose sounded really great to him. He settles back into his seat as he waits for her in the bathroom, taking a look around the restaurant and making a note to himself to make their next date perfect for her. Now that she’s pregnant, he’s going to be sure that everything he does really shows her just how much he loves her.
