Anchor




They had got married some months ago and as they both loved beaches, they were waiting to vacation at an exotic SouthEast Asia island destination.

She had made the entire travel-planning and booking when he announced that he had to urgently go abroad for a month-long official assignment.

When he returned home, a smart & relaxing Beach-themed-makeover of their bedroom awaited him. 

While she coquettishly served him drinks, his eyes, lips & hands claimed her as he reserved self to be her anchor forever.
