Take Me Away! (4)

(This story is fiction--loosely based on reality)

“Casey,” he said softly, leaning over my tub full of bubbles. My pulse quickened. “Are you sleeping? You look wonderful in there but you must get out now. We have much to do.”

I opened both eyes. The deep masculine voice with the British accent sounded familiar.

“Who are you?” I asked.

“Bond,” he said smiling broadly, “James Bond.”

“What are you doing here?” I sank a little lower into the tub.

“We can talk about that later. First, don’t you think you ought to get some clothes on?” He grinned and handed me my robe.

Coming out of the bath into the bedroom, I was completely bewildered but deeply pleased. He was here—finally. All of my wondering and dreaming was coming true. I dressed quickly in the white crepe dress laid out for me. I looked in the mirror pleased with what I saw as the dress accentuated all the curves I thought I had lost to childbearing.

Hurrying downstairs, I met James in the foyer. He held a white fox jacket for me as I slipped into it. I could smell the wonderful scent of his cologne as I nestled against him with a sigh.

“Now, now,” he teased. “We must be on our way.” I whisked through the door he held open, grateful that we had not left through the rain forest in the kitchen.

His black Astin Martin glided smoothly over the country roads as the suburbs disappeared behind us. We turned down a lovely tree lined lane that led to a large white mansion framed by huge white pines. A man dressed in a crisp white jacket opened the car door and helped me out. James took my arm and together we entered a great hall.

I was awestruck, but where were we?
