Author's Note (if applicable): This is set during the vcacation they take to South Carolina mentioned in Vacation.
She had to say her favorite part of being in a relationship again was waking up in the morning and having someone next to her. And talking to him as they got ready to go to work was good. So was getting something to eat with him, just talking while one of them cooked.
This particular morning, she stretched and then curled up next to him again, waiting for him to wake up. He would soon. He always did. They'd started to settle into a routine and she found she liked it: she'd wake up first and wait a little bit until he was awake, and then they'd talk in bed for a little while before getting up and getting something to eat. Sometimes there might be sex, but if there wasn't it was okay with her. She just liked the intimate moments.
A few moments later she felt him pull her closer. "Morning," he said quietly near her ear.
"Morning," she said with a smile.
"I had the strangest dream. I don't really remember it, but it was strange. You were in it, though." She turned in his arms. "Don't worry, you weren't strange in it."
"So I was sexy and sweet and just a little bit naughty?"
"Pretty much," he said with a grin. "It was a nice dream, just...strange."
"Ah. I had a nice dream. It involved a vacation from work spent somewhere warm."
"We're on a vacation from work somewhere warm," he said, his grin turning into a slight smirk.
"I know. But in my dream, we were in California."
"Maybe some other time," he said, running his hand along her side. She smiled at him and moved a little closer. "What do you want to do today?"
"You said something about going to Savannah, maybe," she replied. "I'd like to do that today."
"We can go to Savannah," he said with a nod.
"Good," she said. "And maybe we can pick up some shrimp and make something with that for dinner tonight."
"I was thinking we might eat out tonight."
"Actually, I really want to stay in tonight." She moved a little closer. "Please?"
He laughed. "Okay."
She leaned in and kissed him. "Thank you."
"You're easy to please."
"I am when I get my way."
He pulled her in even closer. "What do you want for breakfast?"
"I want to eat out. Get a real Southern breakfast."
"So you want to get out of bed now?"
"No, right now I just want to stay in bed and talk and maybe do a little more than talk."
"Only a little?" he asked.
"What? I like kissing you. Sometimes more than I like having sex with you."
He nodded slightly. "But you still like having sex with me."
"Yes!" she said with a laugh. "But I think I just want to kiss you for a while right now."
"I can do that."
"I know." She kissed him softly after that, pressing her body close against his and enjoying the moment. This was the best way to start the mornings, she thought to herself. This was definitely her favorite part of the whole relationship thing.
