Tantalizing Tuesday Tease: Waiting


As soon as she heard the first bird calls of the day Ruby eased herself from her bed and made her way over to the window, just as she had every day for the last four months. Peering out on to the street, wearing nothing other than the tight vest top and lace panties she had slept in, she didn't care that she was in full view of anyone who might be passing by.
As far as she was concerned the whole world could stop and stare as long as the one person she really wanted, no needed, to see was among the crowd.
Ever since the day Angel had walked out of the front door Ruby felt as though her life had frozen in time and every day she'd silently prayed, even though she wasn't in any way religious, for the only woman she had ever loved to return home safely from the front lines.
Once she did, because she just knew that day would arrive, Ruby had decided that the two of them couldn't just carry on as they were and had spent the time they'd been apart preparing the most lavish engagement/homecoming party anyone had ever seen.
