Wirata carefully and slowly unwrapped the gift box.
"Why do you have to be that careful? Just tear it and pull it out quickly."
The impatient man suggested when he saw her taking her time to unwrap the paper.
"I don't like the easy way."
Wirata said in her soft tone. Stefan raised his eyebrow.
"What do you mean?"
"Tearing it is an easy way, anybody can do it and most will because of excitement and want to see what inside."
"Exactly! And don't you want to see what inside?"
Stefan asked and still did not get what she was telling him. His wife was a wise woman. She always had reasons behind her actions and ideas.
"Of course, I do. But I also appreciate the value of the hole package you gave me darling. This is the way I show my gratitude and my appreciation by not tearing it but precious it, every piece you have given me."
"But it is only the wrapping paper and the box, sweetheart. What I want you to see is the gift inside."
The man must have forgotten that it was her present now and she could do whatever she wanted with it.
"I want to practice my mind to see and recognize the value of small things. Just like the paper and box, even though they don't have much value as the gift inside but they do their best to present and make the gift look so special and beautiful. It teaches me and reminds me, never to look down on small things in life. They do have their own value and are special in their own ways."
"And it will be thrown away."
Stefan said. That was what people did with the junk, wasn't it?
"I have kept every piece you have given me, even the boxes, the wrapping paper, and ribbons."
Wirata told the man who had not thought about the little things. The man who was born with the golden spoon in his mouth. Stefan Mackenzie only thought about big things.
"Why keep it?" Stefan still did not understand his woman. She was thinking in small detail in which he had to use a magnifying glass to look at it to see what she was talking about.
"Because I also count them as the gift, too. I think if they were not counted, why people have to bother to wrap them. Why don't we just hand a gift alone to each other, why bother to wrap, right? So, its duty to give a giver the pleasure and to give a receiver excitement to see the beautiful package. So, they deserve to be well kept, too."
"Do continue, I am listening."
Stefan liked to listen to her wisdom. He was glad he had chosen the wise and the right woman. Now he was sure that Jeffeo would grow up to be a decent man.
"I don't know. It is a practice of mind to be thankful for the little things that make the big things look more precious and beautiful. "
Stefan smile warmly. She was so thoughtful about everything. The man pulled the gift from her. Then carefully removed the paper.
"Let me try. I want to practice my heart to be patient and thankful, too." He said in a teasing tone. The big hands carefully undid the paper.
"I did tell the seller to make it secured."
He turned to say to her with his faint smile on his lips.
Wirata looked at the man who gave the gift and pulled it back to open it. He never did things as you expect him to do. That was Stefan Mackenzie. He was so adorable.
Wirata kissed on his cheek and reached into the drawer. She took out the gift and handed it to him.
"Happy 2nd anniversary, darling. I love you and I hope you like it."
She said to him. Stefan stopped fighting with the gift box. He looked at the present and made big eyes like a kid.
"Oh, you have one for me, too?"
He pretended to look excited and made Wirata laughed. The man could be a Hollywood actor.
"Of course, darling. Open it and tell me if you like it or not."
Wirata said. Stefan quickly gave her present back and took the one she gave him. He was going to tear the paper then he remembered, so he slowed down his action and winked at her.
"I can do it slowly."
Wirata could not help to laugh lightly and kiss the adorable man on his shoulder. They both started to unwrap their presents.
"Do you like it? To add another one to your collection."
Wirata asked when she saw him take the watch out. He liked to collect watches, a certain brand. There were expensive sets many in his value collection. And this one had special engraved text at the back and on the metal strap.
YOU ARE MY EVERYTHING.
LOVE YOU DEEPLY IN MY SOUL.
Stefan looked at it with happiness in his eyes. His handsome face lit up with a smile.
"I love it, darling. Thank you so much."
He said and gave a peck on her lips and it seemed not enough so he pulled her to kiss properly and it was the long passionate one until he felt satisfied.
"Open and see if you like yours or not."
The gentle voice said. Wirata opened hers. Inside the box was a heart-shaped frame made of gold. There were words on it. The words were engraved and decorated with lots of diamond.
"Wow. So beautiful."
She exclaimed with a delighted tone. Wirata touched the golden heart plate gently. She read the texts with her widened eyes. The statement was...
MY BODY BELONGS TO YOU.
MY HEART BEATS FOR YOU.
MY SOUL LIVES FOR YOU.
YOU ARE MY WORLD.
LOVE YOU FOREVER.
"Do you like it?"
Stefan asked with a happy smile on his face, pleased to see the delightful gesture from his beloved wife. He was glad that he had put all the words he wanted to tell her on it.
"I love it, darling. Thank you very much."
Wirata turned to look at him. Her eyes were sparkling with happiness. She kissed his cheek. Stefan kissed her forehead.
"I am glad." The gentle voice said.
"Why am I so lucky like this?"
Wirata murmured with overwhelming joy. Stefan smiled pleasingly.
"I am glad you know that. Wirata Mackenzie, you are the luckiest woman on Earth to have Stefan Mackenzie as your lovely husband. And from now on, make sure you don't give me to many orders per day as I hardly have time to breathe because of my beloved wife was too bossy."
The big man took an opportunity to make a complaint but Wirata knew he was just teasing.
Wirata kissed his chin and laughed.
"Are you complaining? ... Tonight, I will get up if Jeffy cries. You don't have to. I will let you off for one night as it's our anniversary." She said and Stefan laughed.
"Oh, gosh, what a lucky man I am. But I am not taking the offer. Jeffy got used to seeing me at that time of the night now. He will cry more if he sees you."
He said. Wirata giggled. She knew he just made a joke. In fact, the man was so addicted to his son. He so protective and wanted to do things the ways he wanted without being interfered.
Wirata put the heart frame on the nightstand and Stefan put his present on the one on his bedside. Then they lay down on the bed. Stefan touched her cheek gently.
"Now, it is time for the next step to celebrate our anniversary. Are you ready, my darling?"
He whispered softly in her ears. His hand caressed her breasts and started to remove the straps of her nightgown.
"I think Jeffy wants to have his baby brother soon." He said. Wirata smiled sweetly to her man.
Stefan Mackenzie ... the owner of her life, her heart, and her soul. She loved him to bits. Instead of giving him a verbal answer, she moved her hand to his waist and undid the towel and pulled it off his gorgeous body. She grabbed his private weapon which had extended to its full size already.
"Let's start, hubby. And it's our anniversary all night long."
She whispered in his ears and used her tongue to lick to tease him making Stefan groan with pleasure.
"Oh, I love it already. Let see if our second anniversary will give us the present we are waiting for or not. And I will give my best shot as always."
He kissed her lips gently after his saying. Stefan did not let her fully dressed for long when he was already naked. So he pulled off her beautiful nightgown to make them equal. He moaned in his throat when her soft hand was working on his shaft gently.
"Ah, you are getting better and better every day."
He whispered and sucked her lips as she responded to him passionately. Her tongue was dancing on his tongue making Stefan shake with excitement and hot desire.
Now he intended to make their special night to be the most magical one as he secretly prayed to God to give them the second child as the best present for their 2nd anniversary.
