Work was still consuming a bit of Jason's time, but it had gotten better within the last couple of weeks. Sure, there were times where he was not home every night at a decent hour, but it was nowhere near as much as it had been before. It seemed as though Doe had finally gotten into the swing of things in her studio, and the hired help sure made it easier on her. She couldn't be stuck at the house all of the time. It was still a work in progress, getting things back to semi-normal, but it was worth the work. Jason never wanted to lose Eudoxia. She was the most important person in his life, outside of their children.
For their seven year anniversary, Jason wanted to surprise her. He planned it all under Eudoxia's nose. He put his second-in-command in charge at work, rranged for childcare for the getaway, and booked everything. She'd always wanted to go to the Maldives, and she was going to get it this year.
Jason sat lounged back in a chair, wearing a pair of khaki cargo shorts, and a button-down white shirt that he left unbuttoned, as he awaited for her to get dressed. When she called out to him, he looked over at her. "You look stunning." He said, getting up and walking over to her. He zipped the dress up, and wrapped his arms around her from behind. "You're going to turn quite a few heads tonight. As you always do."
