He led me inside and into a beautiful saloon area. Then we walked up two flights of stairs and back outside to a table set for two. It had a fresh bouquet of peonies in the middle. I looked at Talan, smiled and shook my head. One of the crew members pulled a chair out for me and I immediately sat down. Talan sat in a chair across from me. I frowned at how far away he was. He caught me and raised an eyebrow.
T: What's wrong?
M: You're so far away. Why don't you sit next to me?
T (smiling): I can fix that.
He got up and sat in the chair next to me. Then he snapped his fingers and another crew member appeared out of nowhere and moved Talan's plate and silverware in front of him. I grabbed his hand, entwined our fingers and lazily drew circles with my thumb.
M: I could get used to this.
T (chuckling): Trust me you never do and I've lived like this most of my life.
M: Really? What does your dad do?
T: Well he's...he's a real life treasure hunter I guess you could call it. He salvages shipwrecks and travels all over the world looking for the next shipwreck.
M: Wow that's so cool!
T: I guess.
M: So did you practically grow up on yachts like this one?
T: Yeah pretty much. I was either on a boat or helping my Dad look for clues to the next shipwreck.
M: So did you go ever go to a school or we're you homeschooled?
T: I went to public school until I was 6 then I started traveling with my dad
M: So you've been practically all over the world and your 18?
T: Not all over the world but a lot of it yes.
M: Ok so your dad is a real treasure hunter. What does your mom do?
T: That question will have to wait until after dinner because here comes our food.
Right as he said that two crew members appeared each carrying a plate. They sat the plates down and at the same time uncovered the plates. I smiled as I looked down and not only saw chicken alfredo but it was made with bowtie pasta, my favorite.
M (smiling): So who told you my favorite dish?
T (chuckling): That I can't tell you
M (pouting): Why not?
T: I promised them I wouldn't tell you
M: Fine. It looks amazing
T: You should taste it. It tastes amazing as it looks.
I took a bite and my eyes bugged. Somehow he got a hold of my mother's chicken alfredo recipe.
M: How did you do it?
T (smirking): Do what?
M: This is my mom's recipe. How did you get it?
T: I didn't
M: Then how come it tastes just like my mom's?
T: Turn around, maybe then you'll see why
I did as he told me and screamed. Standing behind me was my mom and dad. I jumped up and ran to both of them, giving them each a huge hug.
M: You brought my parents down here?
T: Well your brothers gave me your mom's phone number so I could get the recipe but she offered to come make it herself. So, I sent the private jet to them and had them flown out here.
I ran over to Talan and kissed his cheek.
M: thank you, thank you, thank you!
T: Your welcome. Now will you introduce me to your parents?
M: Sure. Talan this is my mom, Mary Frances, and my dad, David.
T: It's a pleasure to meet you both and Mrs. Baucum I must tell you, your chicken alfredo is truly amazing.
MF: Thank you so much and please call me Mary Frances.
T: Will do.
D: So sweetie we leave you alone for a day and you already find a way to replace me?
M: No Daddy no one could ever replace you.
D: Well thanks and It seems like you've found a pretty good one this time.
M: I hope so.
D: Son can you tell us how to get to the hotel so we can you two can get back to your date?
T: There's a limo waiting for you. I've already checked you in and your room-key should be in the limo.
D: Well thanks and keep my girl safe.
T: I will sir.
MF: Bye sweetie. See you tomorrow?
M: Of course. We can all go to breakfast in the morning.
MF: Ok see you then
M: Night Mom. Night Dad.
D & MF: Night
I turned back to Talan and smiled up at him. He grabbed me and pulled me into a tight hug.
M: Can we stay like this forever?
T: I wish but I'm hungry and your mom's pasta really is amazing.
M: I forgot about my chicken alfredo. Let's eat.
We sat back down and I leaned into Talan as I ate my mom's amazing cooking.
M: Will you tell me about your mom now?
