A trip may just be for entertainment for others, but this trip was going to be the gift of a lifetime. Christmas was the wonderful season of when they first met. They started out as friends and kept in touch over the years. When they reconnected one time she reached out and did something that was very unlike Katrina.
She kissed her, that one kiss led to the start of a relationship between the two. Katrina and Sapphire were a perfect fit, and Katrina enjoyed every moment. After hundreds of years, she had been alone and suffered through the trials and tribulations of the earth.
In the beginning, they had mentioned they wanted to wait for marriage for a while, but with the idea of seeing the roots of Italy from Sapphire while the roots from Katrina in Scotland she was wanting to propose in between. She had done her research and knew she wanted to ask this woman to be her wife.
Since the world allowed it now, she wasn't going to wait, she wanted everyone to know just how much they loved each other. She had given a beautiful sapphire envelope with gold peacocks, she cursived her name and then inside it held everything they would need for the trip.
Their flights, her freedom from both of their work and it would be the time they could get to know each other further. She wanted to then tell the woman of her marriage proposal idea. If it was a good idea or a bad idea she didn't know but she knew that it would be one exciting ride.
She looked around the house making sure everything was locked and turned off. She had gotten someone to pet sit the pups for her and she had texted her earlier to make sure someone did for Sapphire. This year 2021 was going to be the best for them, she hoped but also felt it.
She wore light makeup with a light blush and pale pink lipstick. She wore a black tank shirt and a pair of blue jeans. She had brought a coat for it was cold out but when she was moving about she got hot at times. Her hair was curled and neatly in a bun with loose curls wrapped around her head.
Grabbing her suitcase she made sure the black velvet box was inside and then quickly brought her car to Sapphire's house. She was excited for their flight to Scotland first, and on the later part of the trip a week in Scotland and a week in Italy, in Italy she found the perfect spot she would ask for her hand in marriage.
Knocking on the door lightly wearing the beige coat loosely on her shoulders as she was warm with excitement already.
Sapphire was excited and surprised by the gift that Katrina as she had given her some large pictures of Scotland for Christmas. The phoenix was beyond excited as she had packed just after Christmas. Once everything was done, Sapphire was excited as she had sent the pups to the dog sitters and wished them to behaved when she left as she went back home and waited for Katrina as she grew more excited for the trip. She even got a shower and a changed into something much more stylish and also warmer as it was still cold outside but she packed for both Italy and Scotland to make sure that she was prepared by both types of weather both cities had to offer during their trip.
Once she heard the knock as she slipped her hat on, Sapphire opened the door and smiled brightly. "Hello love." She said as she kissed her lips softly and pulled her in alittle. "Ready for our trip?" She asked as she held her hands as she smiled. "I cant tell to how much I am excited for this trip, seeing your home and you seeing mine." She said as she giggled in excitement. "I am just soo excited." She said as she held Katrina's hands as she looked into her eyes.
Looking as the door swung open she noticed the beautiful woman that opened it.
Showing nothing except the dark coat for a winter's day. Travelling to different climates in the beginning of the winter months seemed like a crazy idea to most. She knew it but the idea of waiting for any longer was like waiting for poison. She nodded carefully and smiled as she felt her soft and warms lips on hers.
"Am I excited? Can you tell? I think my hands have been shaking ever since." Smiling she nodded. "I am too, my love. I am too."
With that she quickly opened the car door for her. "It's warm in here, I left it running and our flight to Scotland is leaving in an hour. We have to make sure there is good enough time to get there and wait, since that's what airports do." She explained with a small laugh.
She watched the girl carefully before helping with her bags into the car. "I have so many things to show you in Scotland. Its been many years since I have been back though. So much has changed, I'm sure."
Sapphire smiled as she moved and let her inside the house so she can get out of the slight cold. The phoenix couldn't help her excitement as she was showing it as she looked at her girlfriend and was just so eager to leave. Even though it was normally not recommended to travel during the winter time, but Sapphire could help but find it perfect for the two. Winter was something special for the two as that was how they met and blossomed their first friendship before it started to change over the years of knowing each other. The phoenix just couldn't help but fall in love with Katrina all over again as she smiled at her.
"I can tell you are excited my love, I am excited too." She said as she could smile at her girlfriend. "So Lets get ready." She said as she put her things into the car after she got her shoes on while Katrina had started the car. Once Sapphire got into the car and heard that the care was warm, she slipped off her jacket so it wouldn't be to hot in the car for her, even though it wouldn't of bothered her. Sapphire looked to Katrina as she buckled her seatbelt. "Well I am prepared to wait. I can remember airports and how boring they can get but as long as I am with you, I am just going to be so excited about it." She said as she smiled and giggled softly
Listening to her as she giggled and smiled. "I cant wait to show you Italy once we get done in Scotland." She said as she smiled. "I believe every place changes but some things dont which makes it better." She said as she smiled and looked at her, pulling her hand to her lips as she kissed her hand. "Well lets get going!" She said excitedly
She smiled and kissed the girl. "Ah! I am so happy. Excited. This really is important for us." She watched as the phoenix went into her car and took her jacket off. "Is it too warm? Let me know. I am used to the old country so I brought some of my old wool skirts and wool wraps. Trying to keep me warm, as it's cold."
She looked at her and smiled. "I can't wait for it all. I think this trip could be perfect." She explained as she felt a moment of stress, she told herself not to think of the proposal because it was going to make her sick with nerves and it wouldn't turn out any good.
She watched her as she spoke and started the engine as she backed out of the driveway. "Yes, ma'am." She said with a smile. Nodding her head she began the drive to the airport. When they arrived she parked her car.
"It's going to be fun." She said again as she was really excited. "You have your passport and everything? I know its already a little late but don't want to get there and we don't have what we need. Do we also have that plug for europeon outlets?" She asked as she grabbed the bags and began to have them all around her. She didn't want to pack too much but she knew there was a few things she wanted.
It had been years since she was in Scotland and she had to bring her professional camera to see it all.
Sapphire kissed Katrina back and smiled as she nodded. Once she took off her jacket, Sapphire shook her head. "Katrina love, I am used to warm temperatures, heck I am used to being as hot as the sun almost." She said as she giggled and smiled. "Being a phoenix has some perks." she said to her as she listened to her talk about what she would wear to keep her warm in the old country. "Well if you ever need some more warmth, I can help." She said with a wink as she giggled and smiled and buckled her seat belt as she couldn't help but feel jittery about the trip. This would be their first trip together as a couple as they had been dating for a while and Sapphire couldn't see herself without Katrina in her life.
"I think any trip with you will be perfect Katrina." She said with a smile as she held her hand gently for a moment as she looked at her. "Plus I would love to see where you lived and I want you to see where I lived." She said as she smiled and looked at her. "Now lets get going!" She said excitedly as she smiled at her and felt that her body would be jumping in the seat of the car in excitement. "I am just soo excited right now." She said as she smiled softly.
Hearing the car start, Sapphire smiled as she looked at her house and smiled as she knew that her house was in good hands while she was gone and that the pups were in good hands as well as she was a bit nervous about someone babysitting a wolfdog which isn't common around some places. But she knew that she trained Akira and Nala to behave when she wasn't around. Once they arrived at the airport, Sapphire could feel her stomach have butterflies as she smiled and helped get the luggage out of the car.
"I totally agree." She said as she smiled at her. "Yup I even double checked that I have everything." She said as she smiled and nodded as she listened to Katrina talk about being prepared and have everything they needed. "I think I bought some once you told me about the trip." She siad as she smiled and helped with the bags. Sapphire knew she didn't want to pack a lot as but she did made sure that she had room to get some gifts from both places for some friends as she smiled and couldn't help but be happy about the trip.
Katrina smiled at the woman as she spoke.
"I'm sorry, I am still learning it all. I just want to help, and not cause more problems." She said softly as she continued down the roads. Thankfully there wasn't that much snow, so there wasn't going to be any accidents. She thought it a special thing that they would be able to do this together. "It will be perfect, we are together." She exclaimed with a smile as she reached her hand off the steering wheel and gave her a squeeze.
"I love you. I know its so exciting. You're home and my home both getting to be seen by the other. I think this trip might be one of the best things to happen in my life." She said hoping she wasn't stupid enough to give away her hints of the proposal with the other. She wanted them to be enjoying each other's trip before springing something like this on her.
She just knew in her life she wanted her, forever. When they arrived at the airport she parked her car and made sure everything was locked before helping Sapphire with the luggage. As they walked into the airport.
"Good, it's so hard. I have been slowly packing before I even gave you the Christmas gift. You had less time, sorry about that." She said with a smile hearing that she got the plugs. Already they began to work well together as a well oiled machine and it was a perfect thing.
"I guess we bring our tickets and stuff to the front. I haven't done this in forever. The last time I travelled was via boat."
Sapphire smiled. "Its fine, Katrina." She said as she smiled softly as the two headed to the airport. "I agree on that." she siad as she agreed with that the trip will be perfect as they were together through the trip. Sapphire squeezed her hand back as Katrina drove. She smiled as she couldn't help but smile more. Sapphire had been wanting to go to Italy for a while yet she was more excited to see where her lovely girlfriend lived. The phoenix was a big time traveler as she loved traveling. Sapphire looked to Katrina as she smiled. "I love you too, I think this trip will be the best thing in my life besides meting you." She said as she winked at her with a smile.
Once everything was out of the car, Sapphire smiled and held Katrina's hand as they walked into the airport with their luggage. Listening to Katrina talk about packing before Sapphire got the gift made Sapphire giggle alittle as she smiled softly. "Its fine love. I am used to packing on short notice. Remember I own a gaming company so I sometimes have to travel to a different state to get some deals done." She said as she smiled and held her hand.
"Yea we can get the tickets and our luggage taken care of. Its fine love, I haven't traveled in a long time as well so we are kind of in the same boat." She siad as she giggled at her joke. The two got their luggage to the luggage desk to get them onto the plane as they went to the terminal to get ready for their tickets to be checked for their flight.
Katrina smiled at her while she spoke, what was it about this girl that caused her heart to race with delight. She loved the idea of the woman being with her often, the idea of owning a home with her, the idea of waking up next to her.
All these dreams she never had before meeting her sweet Sapphire. Looking gently at her she smiled carefully before laughing with her about her joke. Then she went further and followed her to the terminal.
The attendant was kind and they were easily able to move past their ticket passage and wait for their plane to come.
"I am sorry if I forget how easy you are, I am used to people complaining at times, though I can't blame them. Normally they are in pain, or worried about their family members in pain."
She sat down softly before lifting her leg over the other. "I am sorry for repeating how excited I am, I have never done this before."
Sapphire smiled as she continue to talk about how excited she was to actually travel to Katrina's home and back to her own home away from home. Sure it was nice to see where Katrina grew up and to show Katrina where Sapphire grew up but anywhere with Katrina to Sapphire was home. Her heart pounded against her rib cage as she couldn't help but think about the future together. The two had already started to plan their future home together and even talked about children as both women loved children. The phoenix smiled as she looked at her girlfriend as she couldn't imagine her life without Katrina.
As the two followed down the terminal, Sapphire grabbed Katrina's hand as they had already gave their lounge to the people to take it to the plane. When they got their tickets, Sapphire couldn't help but grow nervous. She had flown before but was so used to flying with her wings instead of using an actual plane. She let out a small sigh as she looked to Katrina as they waited for their plane. The phoenix smiled at her girlfriend as she grew calmer as they waited.
Hearing Katrina talk, Sapphire turned her attention to her as she listened to her. A smile came across her face as she giggled. "I agree on the complaining part. I haven't been on a plane in a while but I remember when I first moved from Italy and flown on a plane. There were complaints in every direction." She siad as she giggled and smiled softly. As they sat down, Sapphire smiled as she giggled at her apology. "No need to apologize, love. I am just as excited as you are, and its really been a long time since I have flown in a plane. I normally fly with my wings to states but never across the country in a plane. Except when I moved from Italy." She said
Katrina felt the softness of her hand as they clung to each other.
They both didn't have top experience when it came to airplanes and if she felt the energy that was surrounding them, she wasn't the only one who was nervous.
"Sapphire. I understand, new thing together. We can do this. If not I did get first-class so maybe we drink a little till we get sleepy." She said with a playful wink at her companion. She was grateful they were going through pretty fast, hearing the calling of their flight number she turned to her and smiled.
"Either way this will be epic, just take it one step at a time and its going to go great! Right?" Katrina held her hand as they made their way to the spot where they had to board the plane.
Sapphire smiled as she looked at her, holding her hand as they waited to be called for their flight. She smiled softly as she heard Katrina speak and turned her head to listen. The phoenix looked at her as she nodded. "I think we can." She said as her eyes widened alittle as she heard first class. "First Class? I never really flown first class. So I guess we are going to drink alittle." She teased at the last part as she giggled and smiled as she looked at her.
The phoenix's mind wondered as she looked at her and smiled as she heard their flight getting called as she got up with Katrina. She smiled as she held her hand as they walked to the terminal. Listening to her as she giggled. "I agree." She siad as she followed Katrina as the two headed to board their plane. Once on the plane and at their seats, Sapphire smiled as she held Katrina's hand and looked at her. "This is getting more exciting each moment." She siad as she watched more people get to their seats. Sapphire stopped a stuartess and asked for some champagne for the two of them.
"I know its alittle early but I feel that this moment needs to have a toast." She siad as she looked at her and smiled as she kissed her lightly.
Katrina couldn't help but smile at the woman she had. "What, did you think I was going to go cheap for this trip? It was an all-in kind of thing. I went a little over budget but it was totally worth it." She responded as the flight attendant helped them to where they had to go. Taking her hand they went on to the plane.
The last time she flew, that was not something she remembered, had she even flown. She wasn't sure but regardless her plan to spend time with the girl was paying off. She enjoyed knowing that the woman was there with her. Hopefully, on the return flight, it would be with her fiancee, though she had no plans to tell the young woman.
"I think it is." She smiled as the woman spoke of needing a toast before returning the kiss, their lips touching and the softness of her skin on hers. She loved the flow of the woman returning it. Looking gently at her she smiled once the kiss broke. "To us. What we both get out of the trip should be wonderful." Lifting her glass towards the woman and nodded.
Katrina couldn't imagine a better way to start off the year, with a wonderful woman by her side and a planned trip to Europe seeing her homeland and that of the woman she loved, what was a better way?
