And they remove themselves to their large and comfortable bed in their adjoining bed chamber–each now eschewing all confining garments as they cuddle naked with each other under the warm sheets and blankets. And across town in Milton, Hannah and Cameron’s evening also begins lovingly.
They lie together silently for some time as they smile and sweetly kiss each other–in awe of how well they please and delight each other.
