LOVE IS IN THE AIR by Maria C. Ferrer

This is the Last Stop on RWA/NYC’s
Thank you for joining us on this adventure.

"Are you with anyone?” At the shake of her head, he pulled her into his row.

“Great. Join me. We’ll catch up. My mom raved all weekend about the surprise 50th birthday party you just threw for your mom.”

Rita smiled. “Did she tell you about the….”

“The Stripper? Yeah. Now she wants one too.”

“But you and your brothers gave her a cruise last year for her 50th?”

“According to mom, it didn’t count since it didn’t come with …Mr. Long? Mr. Horse?”

“Mr. Banana.” Rita laughed at the expression on his face. It was then that she noticed that he was holding her hand. It felt nice. She squeezed his hand and got a returned squeeze in turn. “See what you miss for living so far away.”

“I’m actually moving back to New York.”

“When?” Her heart tripped over itself. She assured herself it was just because the plane was taking off. 

“In June. But it’s going to be weird. I haven’t lived in the city for five years. Going to have to rediscover the Big Apple once I get back.”

“Call me,” Rita offered, “I love playing tourist.”

“I’m going to take you up on that offer.” He squeezed her hand.

Rita felt delicious shivers dancing up and down her spine that had nothing to do with being hundreds of  feet above the ground.  Nick was coming home… at last.

  1. Very nice :) I'm so rooting for Rita and Nick.
