Continued from here.While Rupert called the estate, Wesley looked back at the computer, and before he realized what he was doing, he was starting to log in to check his e-mail. Before he did, though, he stopped and sat back, shaking his head. No.Instead, he shut down the computer once he had printed off the receipt for their flight and then looked over at Rupert, smiling when he hung up the phone and told him that it had been snowing in Bath. "Snow," he said in awe. "It's been so long since I've seen snow."He let Rupert help him up from the couch and followed him into the bathroom. The numbness from the night before had started to wear off a bit, mainly because of his lover's presence. If he hadn't been, he might have hidden himself away.In the bathroom, they started the shower and stepped in together. As the water cascaded down over them, Wesley smiled, rubbing his hands over Rupert's chest."Have I told you how glad I am that you're here?" he told him softly. "I love you so much, Rupert."
While Wesley was on the phone with Fred, Giles slipped out of the bed and padded over to the window. When he looked out the curtains, he was surprised to see it was no longer snowing. In the distance, he noticed the county road was already being cleaned up. He was rather sure William said the snow was to last all day.Giles went over to the dresser and picked up his mobile phone to ring William. After a brief conversation, Giles rung off and slipped into bed just as Wesley was finishing his own call. A smile lifted on his face when his lover told him Fred was coming. He had always liked Fred and liked spending time with her."Good and I have some good news myself," Giles said as he nuzzled against Wesley's neck. "The storm has bypassed us and the words to London are clear. If you're up to it, we could go to London now, and pick up the things we need. And if it gets too late, we can stay at my old flat. The lease is still not up on it yet."He wrapped his arms around Wesley and pulled him closer. "Or we could just stay here. It's rather up to you, love," he murmured before softly kissing him.
Wesley smiled when Rupert said that the storm had passed. As much as part of him wanted to just stay in bed with this man for the rest of his life, cuddling him and shagging him into the mattress and being shagged by him, he knew that there were some things that they needed to get if they were to get married.Rings for one. He wanted to wear a ring to show that his life and heart belonged to Rupert."I..." he started to say before kissing him for several moments, his hand trailing up Rupert's side to wrap under his arm. When they broke apart, he rested his forehead to his. "Staying here would be lovely, but I think I should like to go to London. I'd like to find a set of wedding rings for us. And something to wear to the ceremony - not just something that I brought along with me. Plus, there's still the matter of that mystery shop you mentioned."Pulling back, he took Rupert's hand to draw him to an upright position and kissed him again."And you know, the sooner we get all that done, the sooner we can cuddle up back in bed again," he reminded him, a smirk tugging up one side of his lips.
