So many questions, and luckily, I knew all of the answers. I had Chaseyn to thank for that. He had prepared me well for my travels, particularly in the ways of customs questions. Once I finally had my passport stamped and could walk through the turnstile, we were still not quite free to begin our adventure. There was one more stop we had to make--the one at the baggage carousel. One good thing came from my customs foray--our bags were already offloaded and awaiting our arrival. In fact, all of the other passengers had departed, and our bags were the only ones remaining.

Eli had done us a huge courtesy, and it was the least we could do to humor him this one time. “So she just gave you a key to a wicked awesome room because you flashed her a grin and a few flattering words,” Addie managed to stammer without laughing. “Sure thing. I gave her my puppy dog eyes, too, and she caved,” he said, batting his long lashes as he spoke. “I don’t know about you guys, but I’m dying to get this bag off my back. Let’s check out this place,” I said, turning to cross the street. ” “Um, there’s something you should know first,” Eli paused and scratched his head nervously.

When I was ready, I knew he would be waiting. I had faith. Better than that, I had his word. Chaseyn would never go back on his word. However, right now, I just wanted to stop thinking about him and focus on the near future. I decided to take the heat off of me by turning the conversation back on Addie. ” I asked Addie now that we had settled into our economy seats and the engines were starting to roar. ” “What? ” “I plan on telling him,” she said. ” “Now,” she said, snapping open her phone for one last call before takeoff.
