Tom knows all about Ryan and Allie now. Ryan came in yesterday for a long weekend and one of the first things he did was to call Tom and ask him if they could talk. Since Ryan’s estrangement from his father he has become closer and closer to Tom.
They talked up in Tom’s office – I was dying for a way to eavesdrop but the door was firmly closed without an invitation to me being offered. But they were down about an hour later and both were smiling. I got a big hug from Ryan that lifted me off my feet before he headed to Allie’s.
As soon as he left I got a lifted eyebrow lift from Tom “You knew they were sleeping together. Why didn’t you tell me?”
“Now Tom, I haven’t known long and really it wasn’t my news to tell now was it? So what did you tell Ryan?”
“Well I don’t think it was a good idea at their age and I wish that they had waited.” Tom admitted. “Ryan is not in a position to take care of Allie should he needs to, and I think that should have been the case before they took this step.”
“You didn’t fuss at him did you?” I scolded. “This should be a beautiful time for them. I hope you didn’t make him feel bad.”
“Cassie I don’t fuss at people. I only …”
“Oh so I’m the only one you fuss at?” I couldn’t help interrupting. “You didn’t tell him they should stop did you?” For some reason I was a little upset that he might be sticking his opinions in where they didn’t belong.
Tom came over and wrapped his arms around me “Now when have I ever fussed at you?” he asked.
“WHEN have…?” I started to sputter, but he cut me off with a kiss.
“No girl, I didn’t tell Ryan anything except that he was responsible for her emotionally now, as well many other ways. I'm not so foolish as to think they're going to stop once they've started”.
"Being with the woman you love can be darn near addictive. As a matter of fact” he went on with twinkle in his eye “I could use a fix right now. And someone needs a spanking for keeping secrets from her husband.”
My romantic devil! We had a lovely afternoon. It had been a while since we had just spent hours in bed loving and touching and talking. I’m happy for Allie and Ryan, everything is so new and exciting for them but I wouldn’t trade what Tom and I have for all the youth in the world!
