So my Dom made it!
After a hellacious flight- which, I'll say, we're never using Spirit Airlines again after this. It's a low budget airline, but they gouge the hell out of you with fees on the side.
They charge you for a carry on bag [luckily for my Dom, a backpack is a "personal item" and wasn't charged]
They also charge your checked baggage for every connection you have. My Dom had 3 transitions. His home state to Dallas fort worth, to Ft.Lauderdale, to Tampa where I am. They tried to charge him about $100 for a checked bag that's under 40lbs.
I've been blessed enough to travel quite a bit, immediately I pointed out to him that, that didn't seem right, looked like a cash-grab, and that it'd be wise to grab a manager and ask why that's such a steep price.
So he did, and they explained to him that charging per connection was a "new thing they're trying"
In the end, they refunded him 50 dollars, but I will say I'm still unimpressed...
As he came to the exit of his gate where I was waiting, we both dressed nice. I wore my restraints, be damned if I got any weird looks. They bring me comfort, and I was quivering with nervousness, excitement, and a little anxiety.
As he strode up to me we started off with the awkward hug. You know, that hug you loosely move your arms around the other person and lean in slightly.
As we did that, he murmured into my ear to stop quivering. Immediately like a switch being flicked to the "off" position, I stopped. I melted into the hug a little more. Hearing his voice right in my ear did it.
[For anyone on TikTok it's like that sound clip. "......Wow, I didn't know it did that..."]
We got his bag, and ventured off to my car. After checking in to our Airbnb [which, this little lone apartment is GORGEOUS] we went shopping and I had the pleasure of cooking with my Dom~ We made some Southern Soul food to welcome him to the South.
Hand battered chicken, baked mac n cheese, and collard greens! [I didn't have the tools or enough pots to make corn bread or black eyed peas]
He loved the chicken and mac n cheese! The collards he nibbled on but it wasn't his favorite, which is ok! It was his first time having them. I'm just happy and proud he liked my cooking haha!
After, we had some "bonding time" together by cuddling on the couch and watching comedy specials. Over a little bit of time, we came to the point I had been inwardly dreading a bit. He wanted to see me, and show me that he wasn't going anywhere.
[[Prior to this we had spoken about how self conscious I can be, how I was worried about how he might be disgusted by what he saw, etc... I'm a heavyset woman. I know this isn't attractive to many.]] He figured me out immediately.
I'm very afraid of rejection, and the pain that comes with it.
He reminded me that he wasn't going to hurt me, or force me to do anything. He unzipped and unhooked the back of my dress and kissed along my back. Telling me that he saw all of the good things in me, the kind of person I was, and the person he adored. He closed his eyes and had me remove my dress and crawl onto the bed naked, and lay on my belly. As I did, he sprawled out with me and made me look up at him, whispering to me that he had chosen to be here. This was where he wanted to be again, reminding me...
Soon, he told me to stand in the bedroom doorway where the light was, and I did... he had me turn slowly 180, then another 180. Looking over my back and my front. Soon, he approached and took my hands and had me look up at him again. He told me that he saw all of me, and wasn't leaving, or disgusted at all. As we curled up on the bed together he apologized to me for people hurting me in the past... I teared up a little bit at that.
After a little more time of cuddles and quiet whispering in the dark, we headed to the bathroom and I got to show him what I meant when I said bath time is a sacred time for me.
I personally had the pleasure of washing my Dom's body from head to toe; and in return he washed my body too. I loved every second of that.
Soon though, after washing in the shower ahh... I won't give details, but I will say that things got steamier than the shower quickly and we scooted off to the bedroom. [Shower was a bit too narrow to properly play in]
Now, I'm sitting here in bed, my Dom asleep behind me, and I realize he's a complete blanket hog!! I sleep with a fan on, I woke up chilly hah! That's ok though. My state is hot as hell, and I like the coolness a bit.
I'd give him my blankets any day. To me, he's amazing...
I dunno how much of a play by play I'll be able to give of my experience Cage Dwellers. But I'll try~
