My Best Friend's Love-Chapter 13

Chapter 13: Tea-Time
Waking up in Ashley's arms was a very warm experience. She was staring at me with love in her eyes.
"I just love that color blue," she said when she saw I was awake.
"You have gorgeous brown eyes," I complimented her.
"Thank you, Riley. Did you enjoy last night?"
"Very much," I replied. "What time is it?"
She looked at her watch.
"It's eleven-oh-three," she told me.
"How does a cup of tea sound?" I asked her.
"That sounds good," she answered with a smile.
"Because I'd like to talk to you," I told her.
"What about?" She asked curiously.
"About me going back to work," I said grimly, and she frowned.
"Don't look at me like that," I said. "No one is sadder than me. But I do have to pay a mortgage on this house."
"I could get a job online," she said, trying to help.
"Yeah, you could," I said gently.
"My bedpan needs emptying," she said matter-of-factly.
"I'll get that," I told her.
I emptied her bedpan and rinsed it out in the tub. I returned it to the bedside table. I helped Ashley put on her jeans, socks and shoes.
"Could you help me get to the bathroom?" She asked her. "I think I need to use the toilet."
"Sure," I replied. "It's a good thing I'm stocked with toilet paper."
"Yes, it is," she agreed.
I unzipped her jeans and pulled down her underwear.
"You can look, Riley," she whispered heatedly.
I did, and get instantly hard.
"Hard again, huh?" She asked me shyly.
"You have to know the effect you have on me," I said as I swept her up in my arms. "Your body drives mine crazy."
"How I wish we could go all the way," she murmured. "I swear, the instant I get the use of my legs back, I'm going to jump on you, and ride you as long as I want."
I smiled at that, and couldn't stop the fantasy from invading my mind.
"I'll certainly let you do that," I whispered in her ear.
I took her to the bathroom. She used it, wiped, and then held her arms up for me to pick her up.
I helped her into a standing position and she pulled up her panties and fastened her jeans.
I carried her back to my room and sat her in the wheelchair. I wheeled her into the kitchen and started making tea. She started typing on her laptop while I watched the tea boil. I was avoiding the subject that I had brought up earlier, and I could only guess what was on Ashley's mind.
About ten minutes later, the tea was done. I added sugar, then filled two glasses with ice from the freezer, poured the tea over the ice, then went to sit at the table. I set a glass in front of her.
"Thanks, honey."
"Should I get a fresh catheter and your bedpan?"
"Yes," she replied. "I don't want any accidents."
I went to the bedroom and got both the catheter and the bed pan and returned to the kitchen. Her jeans were already undone when I came into the room.
I placed the bedpan on the floor beside her wheelchair, and handed her the catheter. She inserted it and then closed her laptop.
I sat down at the table and took a swallow of my tea. Ashley took a gulp of her tea, then set the cup on the table.
"Now, Riley, about you going back to work-" She began, but I interupted.
"I won't go back if you don't want me to. You're more important to me than anything else in this world," I told her seriously.
I looked at her, and what came out of her sweet mouth surprised me.
"I was going to say I understood about your work, and I know that you are needed on the force. I was also going to say that as long as you help me to the bathroom in the morning and when you return that I don't mind you working as long as you call me at least once during the day," she said with deep understanding.
"Oh," was all I could say, because she truly had surprised me.
"I don't want to hold you back, Riley. If nothing else, being in this wheelchair has taught me that I can be independent if I try. And I want you to be happy with me, Riley. Even if it's not the way we both want it to be...yet. I have every intention of us walking together down an aisle."
"What?" I asked, shocked. "You want to marry me?"
"Yes," she replied with a devestatingly sexy smile.
"Ashley, you have no idea how happy that makes me," I said with a smile in return.
"Probably about as happy as I will be when a minister declares you my husband."
"I love you so much, Ashley," I told her as I got up to kiss her.
After we kissed, she told me she loved me, too.
We finished our tea, talking as we drank.
"So, you don't mind me returning to work?" I asked her softly, making sure.
"As long as you call me once a day," she reminded me.
"I will," I promised her.
"You're a good man, Riley. While we are together, I trust that you will take care of me."
"That will be the truth for the rest of our lives," I told her solemnly.
"Listen, Riley," Ashley said seriously. "If and when I walk again, only then will I ask you to marry me. Until then, I just want you to know that I trust that you will stay faithful to me."
"Your faith is well placed," I assured her. "Baby, as good as you make me feel, you should know that you're the only woman I'm ever going to want."
"That's good to know. You know, Riley, I almost wanted to hit Julie Cohen that day at the hospital."
"You remember that?" I asked, shocked.
"Yes."
"I almost hit her when she was threatening to kill you with knife."
"I am grateful to have you in my life," she told me quietly. "You make me so happy. I dream about you at night, Riley. In those dreams, you and I have the most amazing adventures. That one dream I had was so fairytale like. I was a princess locked in a tower, and you were the knight who came to rescue me."
"I'll always be your knight in shining armor, Ashley," I said gently.
"I know you will, Riley. And the dreams of us making love leave me breathless."
I blushed at that, and she laughed an enchanting laugh.
"You should know I dream of us making love all night long," I told her.
"One say I'll make your dream come true," she promised sweetly.
"I know you will," I murmured, wondering if us making love would ever be a possibility.
"I'm so glad I'm not with Brit anymore," she told me.
"I just hope none of our enemies get out of jail anytime soon."
"Are they due to go to court soon?" Ashley asked me with a worried frown.
"I'll call you today and let you know."
"Thanks," she said softly.
"Your welcome, honey."
"I have to go take a shower. Then I'll make you breakfast and lunch before I leave for work."
"Riley?" She called as I walked down the hall.
"Yeah?" I called back.
"I'll suck you tonight, okay, my love?"
"Whatever you want, baby," I said, smiling to myself.
I took my shower. Afterwards, I got dressed in my uniform shirt and khaki shorts. When I went back into the kitchen, Ashley was watching Youtube videos. I made her a bacon-and-egg sandwich for breakfast, and a bologna and cheese sandwich for lunch.
"I'll see you at five-thirty," I told her.
"See you then, baby," she said, licking her lips.
I kissed her then, and she moaned before grabbing my erection through my pants, making me hot with just that action.
