warm socks on all of them.  
    “Hey,” Belmont says as I zip up the suitcase.
    Seeing his beautiful face appear out of nowhere never gets old. “Hey,” I say.
    He looks at me from head to toe. “You can always make a pair of jeans and a T-shirt sexy.”
    “Back at you.”
    We smile at each other and look at the bed.
    “Are you ready?” he asks.
    I nod.
    “I’m going to miss you.”
    “Ditto.”
    He walks to me. “The only reason I’m not fucking you right now is because he’s sore.”
    I chuckle. “If he’s sore, can you imagine how sore she is?”
    Belmont frowns as he strokes my neck. “Have I hurt you?”
    I look into his eyes. It’s so quiet and still. He smells good. He’s wearing that cologne I like. Out of nowhere, I’m flooded by new emotions. Has he hurt me? “You have hurt me. We haven’t talked about it, but you’ve hurt me.”
    Belmont sighs gravely. “You’re referring to Stacy?”
    I nod as I try to keep from tearing up.  
    He holds my face to make sure I’m looking into his eyes. “Daisy, baby, I need you to believe me when I say that those pictures looked worse than what actually happened. I told you, I tried to…” He sighs. “I tried to have sex with her, but I kept having mental blockages.”
    “I know you love me, Belmont.”
    “I more than love you.”
    “Then why did you even try to have sex with her?”
    He says, “Because…”
    “Because?”
    “Because loving someone else half as much as I love you would be easier.”
    I think he just knocked the wind out of me. “Why am I so hard for you to love?”  
    “You’re so sad, Daisy. I love to see you laugh. I know if you’re laughing, then you’re happy, at least for the moment. I don’t know how to make you happier. Well, I do, but I’m not God. I can’t raise the dead.”  
    I’ve swallowed his words, and they’ve choked me until I can’t speak.  
    “Listen, babe, Stacy was a stupid-ass, knee-jerk reaction that brought me more misery than it did you. You’re the only woman I want to love, make love to, fuck, or do anything else with. I’m going to figure out how to make you happy every goddamn second of the day even if I die trying.”
    We’re staring into each other’s eyes.
    “It’s just… you were intimate with her.”
    “I know. If I could take it back, I would. I’m sorry… I’m very, very sorry. You can hold my actions against me for as long as you need to get over them, but baby, don’t ever leave me again.”
    I see Belmont’s soul behind his eyes. He means every word he just said. “Then…” I clear my throat. “I forgive you.”
    “I love you,” he whispers.
    “I love you too.”
    Belmont’s lips covers mine. We kiss as if we’re rediscovering each other’s tongue and lips. I whimper because I want him so much. Cool air hits my back as my shirt lifts. I raise my arms, and our lips separate momentarily so that Belmont can pull my shirt over my head. He unclamps my bra, and when my tits are freed, his mouth consumes one of my nipples then the other. I run my fingers through his hair as he makes me wet.
    “This way,” he whispers.  
    Belmont walks me to the bed and spreads me across the mattress. He snatches his shirt over his head and throws it to the floor. I smooth my hand across the ripples of his chest and torso.
    A phone rings. We both look at his pants pocket.
    “Is that a cell phone?” I ask.
    “Yes.”
    “Did you have one when you got here?”
    “No. I had one brought to me this afternoon.”
    I frown. “Oh. When did you start putting it in your pocket again?” I thought Angelina had convinced him to keep his cell phone out of his pocket.
    Belmont takes out the cell phone and looks at the screen. “I normally don’t. I forgot. It’s the helicopter operator. He’s ready for you.”
    I try to sit up, but Belmont’s hand stops me.  
    He shakes his head. “He’s going to have to wait.”
    Belmont works faster. He undoes my pants and snatches them off,
