She came to my seat. Gulf Air First Class seat was wide enough to snuggle for both of us. I made the seat fully reclined mode and it became almost a bed. It was not as comfortable as a bed but that was the luxury we had due to the Air Hostess and the ticket agent. I could not have thanked them more..
The dim light was almost like the one we had in hotel in Muscat. It brought back the memory. I told her, ” See, this almost felt like we are still in Muscat..” She just kept snuggling with me under the blanket…I looked at her eyes, there were tears in that eyes. Her tearful eyes blinked like a thunder in my heart.
I pulled her chin towards me, kissed her with all the love I had in my heart, poured every single drops in her mouth. I could feel that her body heat was rising. I smiled at her she knew exactly what I meant. She said, “Your love will be the best part of my life and body until I DIE.”
She whispered to me..” What if someone walks in..?” I said,” I don’t think anyone will walk in here, everyone is sleeping. The plane is almost empty anyway..” So we became the member of the Mile High Club…it was exciting. It was daring…
After came back from bathroom we fall in sleep in the same seat…she was half way on top of my body…I wanted to be with her every single second…We were awaken by the same Air Hostess…she gave us the same mischievous smile. She asked us if we had good night sleep. I smiled back and asked her..” What do you think..?”
The Air Hostess gave us some hot wet towel to freshen up. We cleansed ourselves with that. Then the meal was served. I ate but she hardly touched any food. I tried to put food in her mouth. She just took a bite and left the rest..
She crawled back to my seat again. I hold her tight. She had fallen sleep again in my arms. I just kept looking at her. Her face was looking pale, there was no makeup but her skin was surprisingly fresh looking. I pulled some locks of hair from her face. She had a small diamond on her nose, it was sparkling in that dimmed light. Her eye brows very nicely threaded. I gave her a soft kiss on her forehead. I did not want to wake her up.
I was breaking down inside. The thought of living her was killing me. I did not want her to leave. I did not want me to go away from her life. I wanted to be a part of her life. I wanted to know how she would be doing even after 20 or 30 years. I was thinking. Is it possible to love two persons same way at the same time..? I loved my wife and I love her.
I dozed off, did not know when. I felt the same kind of warmth on my nose. I kept my eyes closed. I knew it was her. I opened my eyes and saw her looking at me. I tried to smile. Her eyes were full of tears. I asked her, ” Why are you doing this to me ? Why did you fall in love with me..? Why are you behaving like this ? Don’t you know that you and I ..It’s just impossible to be with each other..?” She cried and said..” I don’t know. I just don’t know, hold me tight, I just don’t want to lose you..”
The same Air Hostess woke us up by turning the lights on…she brought some cake, fruits and some other goodies for us. She told us not to worry. She and the Pilot would tell the next crew from London to take very good care of us. We thanked her profoundly for her hospitality and help. She called us again the love birds. She told us to be very happy and stay married. She didn’t know that we were not married..
The Pilot announced that the plane would land in London Heathrow Airport within 30 minutes. I opened the window. London city looked so beautiful from the sky. The aerial view of London was great. I was showing her the London Tower Bridge on the Thames River. She loved it.
She asked me,” What if we just get out of this plane when we land in London and never come back, what if we eloped ? You are an American citizen. I am sure you will be able to get a job here and we will live happily ever after.”
I said,” Are you sure that we will be happy..? There are other people like my wife and daughter and your husband, believe me if I was not married, I wouldn’t mind to just get off here with you and start anew my life…but my wife and daughter. They did not do anything wrong. How can I forget that.?”
She told me softly,”I understand.”
The plane was circling around the airport, the Air Hostess came back for the last time. The Air Hostess kissed her cheek. She told me to take care of her as she was very precious.
We landed in London Heathrow Airport.
