First Night Part 1

My Dear Loveable Sir,

I’m not even sure how I can write this letter with a straight face, so I won’t fight it. I’m grinning like a Cheshire cat remembering that first night.

My internal body clock was telling me it was time to be up and moving, yet it was night time outside. What I put you through! I had taken a hot shower to wash the away the travelling feeling and to try to relax. You graciously saw me to bed and made sure I had everything I needed. Then you retired to your room to give me privacy and to try to sleep yourself. I was clean and in my pajamas and wide awake!

I am not sure how long I laid there just thinking; you know how my brain doesn’t like to shut down at night. I contemplated where I was and who I was with, and I was still processing it all. I was in Sir’s house, and Sir was in the other room! We had hugged and kissed. I was giddy beyond belief to be certain. I was the princess and pea was across the hallway.

I know I eventually drifted off to sleep, but it felt like I had just barely closed my eyes when the strangest noise awoke me. It wasn’t just because I was in a strange house where I wasn’t used to its sounds; this noise was freaky and a bit scary. After waiting what seemed like ages, I heard it again. I wasn’t sure what I should do. I decided to bite the bullet and go wake the sleeping giant in his lair.

I crossed the hall and softly called your name from the doorway (which you left open so you could hear me in case I needed you). You immediately arose and came to me asking what was wrong. I told you about the noise. You followed me into your spare room and sat with me on the bed. We waited. And we waited. And waited some more. The noise never happened again at least not that night (we figured out what it was another night and that is a story in itself). I am sure you thought I was imagining things at that point, but you were too much of a gentleman to say it out loud. I was feeling a bit foolish by this time anyway.

You decided to lie next to me in my bed and talk to me to soothe my frazzled nerves. I wish I could say that it was all a clever ruse to get you in my bed (ha), but that wasn’t the case at all. You worried and fretted over me. I felt completely protected.

This night is very memorable in more ways than one, and you Sir know why. It was a new chapter of us.

Fervidly yours,



My Jet Lagged Darling

I remember that first night vividly. As you know there are multiple reasons for that, many of which will never grace these pages.

Yes you were standing in my home. My American sweetheart, jet lagged, emotionally charged and incredibly beautiful was here with me. I was a happy man.

You had showered and readied yourself for bed. I knew you were wired, but you clearly needed sleep. I had made up the spare room for you. While I wanted nothing more than to never spend a moment apart from you, I wanted you to feel safe and secure and not be worried by any unwanted demands of your host. You needed a safe place to call your own.

That damn noise, I can’t believe it. If I had known that was all it would take to drive me into your arms, I would have ensured it started a heck of a lot earlier. I am laughing out loud here, because I now know the cause. But at the time I was as perplexed as you were.

Yes I did lay next to you on your bed. It seems like such a contrivance reading it now. I was totally innocent I swear. That first night together, it is seared in my memory. Lying next to you in that darkened room was amazing. I was experiencing a tactile overload. You were mine to touch, kiss, stroke and hold. I could smell you. I could gaze lovingly into your eyes. There is no need to draw a diagram about what logically happened next. Suffice it to say that you never needed to sleep in my spare room again, and you never did.

You were in Australia, in my house and by my side. The next chapter in our incredible journey had well and truly begun.

You Will Always Be My Darling

From Sir With Love

    These letters are so intimate. You are obviously very much in love. And what a magical first night!

    • Hi Cupi (I trust that abbreviation works)

      One doesn’t like to boast but the story gets even better. And yes after all this time, all the separation and all the heartache we are still very much in love.

      Thanks for riding with us on our rollercoaster.


    • Cupit,

      They are intimate, because we decided early on that we’d bare our souls in all its brutal honesty.
      I love Sir with all that I am, and I am happy to report that he knows it with all that he is.

      ~ Darling

    You’re doing the thing where you lure us in with your incredible love story and then keep us wanting more. Where is Part 2! I hope it isn’t a long wait to that day!

    • Thank you Djoo.

      It is simply our story. It’s still as incredible to me today as it was back then. Sir is amazing and easy to love.

      ~ Darling

        Were you one of those people who thought that fairy tales didn’t exist and then fell spectacularly in love? I love stories like that.

        • Djoo.

          I think at one time I did believe in the fairy tale, but at that time I was very jaded, hurt, and I didn’t trust easily. I really was trying to heal. I did fall in love with Sir. That was the easy part. The rest was -shall I say it – history. Literally.


  3. Hi Djoo

    I am pleased you are intrigued……lol. Yes we have part 2 drafted and ready to go, with a lovely coda to finish this section of our story with. I assure you all will be revealed and in a timely manner.


  4. Gosh darn it! Is there ever going to be one story that doesn’t melt my heart and make my knees weak? 😛 everyday, I look forward to reading your stories- good and bad. They’re intimate and charmingly lovely! Most of the time, thy always leave me smiling and excited because it sounds so cute and romantic…like the love every woman and man deserves.

  5. Hey There Megs

    Soooooo, falling in love across the big pond that separates me from This Guy isn’t crazy afterall? I am hopeful that we will meet one day. Until then, his words and music are enough. For now….
