She pulled out the keys and unlocked the door.
She had waited for that moment for weeks, and as she entered the penthouse, she took each step carefully. She wanted to enjoy every second. She was exactly where she wanted to be, and the fact that he had agreed to join her made the experience even more exciting.
She had waited for the top floor apartment , but it was well worth the patience, the flat was perfect. Just like she had wished it to be… It was beyond her expectations.
She walked around the living room, looking at the large framed pictures hanged on the walls. The monochromic decoration would have seemed cold to some, but she loved it. The lighting was almost artistic and gave warmth to every corner of the room.

She knew, but then again, anything was possible… And her hope was endless. Endless like the horizon line, she kept staring at.
-I can’t stay tonight, but I don’t have to leave just now…
Clinging to his hands, pressing them on her belly, she felt goosebumps rising along her arms as he bent down on her, his warm breath making its way towards her shoulder. And when she felt his lips suddenly burning the hollow of her neck she realized how exhilirating it was to be on top of the world…
