Angelo smiled, “Baby, you know I would carry you anywhere.” He scooped her up and carried her to the Parthenon. They took pictures and had a great time, and he carried her piggyback through the temple as well. Once they were back in the car, Sophia looked so tired and he felt bad, “Hey you guys get off my baby, she’s tired, and I am going to make sure he gets her rest at the beach.” He kissed Sophia sweetly, “You rest baby, I got you.”
Sophia was surprised when Angelo scooped her up and carried her. “Angelo, you can put me down. I was only kidding.” But he didn’t. He carried her throughout the temple and even spoke up for her when they were in the car, “You are the best boyfriend ever.” She told him as she caressed his cheek and kissed him softly, “I love you, Angelo.” Once the vehicle started to move, she closed her eyes and took a nap.
The morning turned out better than he could imagine, and he liked how sweet Angelo and Sophia were being to each other, he kissed Jazzy and whispered in her ear, “They are so in love, look at them. I think our love rubbed off on them.” He laughed as they made their way to the beach. “Come on guys we’re here.” They were led to their cabana, “Okay guys let’s get changed, Jazzy, I want you in that water with me in five minutes.” He smirked and grabbed his swim trunks to get changed.
"Sorry for giving your ‘baby’ a hard time, Angelo." Mercedes giggled at Poe, "Really babe? You think our love rubbed off on them? You are so cute…" She pinched his cheeks and kissed his lips. They arrived at the beach and followed Poe to the cabana he had ready for them. He asked her to get changed and to join him in the water and she smiled, "I’ll do that." She took Sophia’s hand and they went to get changed. They were back a few minutes later and she went into the water just like Poe instructed. "This is nice…" She told him with her arms looped around his shoulders. "Thank you for this, Poe. I’ve truly enjoyed my birthday… I feel like I owe you so much. But I’m sure I can repay you in the bedroom later."
Angelo enjoyed his breakfast, it was so delicious. “Sam, this was great, I am glad you suggested it.” He laughed and rubbed Sophia’s back, “She is not lying, we better move, because my girl would go to sleep on you in a minute.” He grabbed Sophia’s hand and they headed to the door.
Sophia let out a yawn, her eyes were already getting heavy as she listened to Sam list the places they could go to. “Sounds good, Sam. We better go now.” She followed Angelo out of the restaurant and towards the next location. “God, I hope I don’t fall asleep walking… It’s your fault. You kept me up all night. I should make you carry me.”
Sam paid for breakfast and led Jazzy Sophia, and Angelo to the Parthenon, where hey walked around for an hour and then headed to the Temple. They were there for a few more hours. They took pictures and goofed off for a while. It was a fun time being with them. “So I arranged for us to have lunch on the beach. We have our own cabana so you can change there, and if you want Sophia, you can catch a quick nap.” He laughed and they headed back to the car so they can go to the beach.
They headed out of the restaurant and towards the Parthenon. She had a lot of fun sight seeing with Poe, Sophia and Angelo. They laughed, took pictures and bought souvenirs. “Lunch sounds perfect. I’m hungry again.” She laughed, “And yes, Sophia should take a nap. She looks like she’s about to keel over soon.”
Angelo listened as Sam made his suggestions for breakfast, he didn’t know what he said, but he was willing to try anything. “Damn Sam, I didn’t know you spoke Greek, that’s cool. And from the way you got Mercedes reacting, you might have to speak Greek from now on to get some loving.” He laughed and ordered his food from the waiter that came to the table.
"Sounds good to me." Sophia nodded and smiled. She looked at Angelo and slapped his arm, "Stop being a perv…" The waitress arrived and they ordered their food. Half an hour later, everyone was full. "So what’s next on the agenda? If we are going to do this sight seeing, I suggest we do it right away before I fall asleep." She said before taking a drink.
Sam looked at Jazzy and smirked before whispering in her ear “ I’se o’ti kali’tero mou e’hi simvi’, which means, you’re the best thing that’s happened to me.” He kissed her cheek and turned his attentions back to the table. He was happy everyone was enjoying their breakfast. “I was thinking we can go to the Parthenon which is right over there.” Pointing out the window, then go to the Temple of Hephaestus, you guys down for that?”
Mercedes’ heart melted. She grip Sam’s hand and stroke the back of it, “You’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me too, Poe.” The breakfast went on smoothly and by the time she was done, they were already talking about where to visit. She listened to Poe’s suggestion and nodded, “I’m up to go to any place you all want to go to. The day is still young, so I suggest we go right now before Sophia there fall asleep.”
Angelo gave Sam a fist bump, and laughed, “Well what can I say, I felt inspired this morning.” He sat back and enjoyed the ride to the restaurant. “Sam we know you’re not all about the money. We knew you guys when you were both working to pay your bills, but hey now that you got it, I see nothing wrong with splurging every now and then.” The ride was short, and they went inside the restaurant, “This place is nice, and I am ready to eat a real authentic Greek breakfast. Since you’ve been here before Sam, you should tell us what’s good.”
Sophia felt like she was going to be rolling her eyes this whole day, so she didn’t bother to say anything to the two guys and just listened to all of them speak. They arrived at the restaurant and Sophia looked through the menu, “Everything looks good to me. But then again I’m starving, so everything will look good.” She laughed and nodded in agreement to Angelo’s statement, “Yeah, Sam, what’s good here?”
Sam kinda felt the pressure that everyone was looking to him on what to eat, but it was okay, because he was ready, “I would suggest the galatopita (milk pie), tiganites (Greek pancakes) with tahini and petimezi (grape molasses), trahana (pellet-shaped pasta made with milk) with feta cheese and the omelet with graviera cheese, as well as the siglino (smoked pork) that’s what I would get when I came here with my folks. Trust me you’ll be very satisfied.” He smiled and grabbed Jazzy’s hand.
Mercedes smiled and listened as Poe gave his suggestion on what they should eat. It was innocent, but her mind instantly went to the dirty. “I’ll have everything…” She simply said before moving close to him, and whispering, “You make Greek food sounds sexy. I wonder what else you can say in Greek.” She kissed his jawline and retreated before she did something really stupid, like jump his bones in this restaurant, in front of Sophia and Angelo.
Angelo made his way to the car and helped Sophia inside, “You’re right Mercedes, I will not survive if this place is far, because I worked up quite an appetite, and I’m starving.” He sat back and rubbed his belly, and looking around this car, “So this car is nice, I guess this is how the other half lives.” He chuckled.
Sophia rolled her eyes at Sam and waited for Angelo to get their stuff before going into the car. “I’m hungry too. Someone had to go three rounds this morning…Angelo.” She coughed and looked around the car, “You must have spent a pretty penny on the car, Sam. But anything for Jazzy right?”
Sam wrapped his arms around Jazzy, “No the place isn’t too far, as a matter of fact it’s just a five minute drive from here. I know my lady needs her breakfast in the morning, so there was no way I was going to pick a place far away.” He kissed her cheek, and laughed, “Three rounds huh? Way to go man!” He gave Angelo a fist bump. “Of course it’s anything for my Jazzy, but I don’t want you guys think I am all about the money, I really want to make this trip special for my baby.” They pulled up in front of the restaurant, “We’re here.” They walked inside and was quickly seated, “So we are going to have an authentic Greek breakfast…I am excited about that, I don’t know about you guys.”
"Oh thank god… Five minutes I can handle. Any longer and I would have passed out." Mercedes giggled and shook her head, "Men… Why do we put up with them? Oh that’s right, because we love them." She shook her head once more and smiled at Sophia. True to his words, the trip to the restaurant was fast. They made it there and were shown to their seats right away, "I’m excited about getting fed, but I’m sure the breakfast is very good too." Her stomach rumbled, so she picked up the menu and began looking through it, "What do you recommend babe?"
Angelo tried to hold back his laughter, because he knew Sophia was not too excited about them getting caught. He put on his serious face, “Really Sam, must you be so cru-” He couldn’t finish his sentence from laughing too much. “Wow, I tried to get it out, but it was not happening. I am not about to act like I’m ashamed of sexing up my woman and being late for sightseeing.” He shrugged his shoulders, “I’ll go grab our suits babe, and then we can head out.”
Sophia rolled her eyes and slapped Angelo again. “It’s not funny and you…” She looked at Sam, “Stop being a smart ass. I can hear you and Cedes’ screams and moans all of last night.” She rolled her eyes at Angelo again, “You are hopeless…” and shook her head, “Fine, get the suits, I’m hungry anyway, so hurry up.”
"Of course I got your things to baby, I am always going to make sure I take care of my baby." Sam laughed, "Hey I know I had my wife screaming all night, that was part of the plan. Sophia, the sooner you realize that there is no need to be embarrassed around us, because we are freaks, the better off you’ll be." He opened the door when he saw Angelo coming out, "Come on guys, our chariot awaits." They went outside to see the car waiting for them. "We are going to Alatsi for breakfast."
Mercedes ignored the banter going on between the three of them. She was not in the mood for their foolishness. She followed Poe out of the house and entered the car that he had rented. Snuggling up to her husband, she asked, “Is this place very far? My stomach is rumbling and I don’t think that I’d last if this place is a distance away. And looking at Angelo, I’m sure that he wouldn’t survive it either.” She laughed.
Angelo was putting on his shoes when he heard Sam yelling, he laughed and looked at Sophia, “I guess they’re waiting on us.” He laughed, “Maybe we shouldn’t have gone for round 3 huh?” He smirked and shrugged his shoulders, “Come on let’s go.” He grabbed Sophia’s hand and led her to the living room, “Alright, alright Sam…damn! We’re here, stop yelling. Can we at least get breakfast? Or do we have to starve?”
Sophia rushed to get dressed. She couldn’t believe that she let Angelo talk her into have sex for the third time that morning. “I told you it was a bad idea. Now we’re late.” She shook her head and took his hand and walked into the living room. Smiling sheepishly at Sam, “Sorry, we slept in late.” She tugged at Angelo’s arm and frowned at him, “Babe, I don’t think now the proper time to be demanding breakfast.”
Sam eyed his friends as they came out, “Okay slept in late…is that what we’re calling it? It’s fine guys, we just need to get going. I set up something for breakfast already, so come on. I also hope you all got your swimsuits because we are going to the beach after lunch too.” He grabbed the bag he had packed for him and Jazzy. “So are we all ready to go? We got a full day planned.”
Mercedes slapped Sam on the arm, “Poe… Really?” She chided, frowning at him, “You are such a guy…” He announced that he already had plans for breakfast and she looked on as he picked up a bag, “I take it you’ve packed for me too?” She asked with a giggle, “You are always surprising me, Poe. I don’t know what to do about you. Alright, let’s go because I’m hungry and I would like to get something to eat before I pass out.”
Sam laughed and shook his head, “Oh you were not complaining Mrs. Evans, I vaguely remember you saying you wanted more..more …more.” He mimicked her voice. He got dressed when she went to shower and headed out to the living room. He smiled when she emerged from the bedroom, “Don’t you look sexy.” He kissed her sweetly on the lips, “I was thinking we can go see the Parthenon, and maybe go to the Temple of Hephaestus. Then grab some lunch and spend the rest of the day at Myrtos Beach, if Sophia and Angelo will hurry up!” He raised his voice so their friends could hear them. “Finally!” He yelled and shook his head as his friends emerged from their room. “It’s nice of you guys to join us.”
Mercedes nodded and listened as Poe spoke. Her mind was in a daze. She was still sleepy and everything she was hearing sounded like buzzing in her ears. “Sounds great, babe.” She smiled and kissed him softly. “And not so loud. They can hear you. Hell, I think the whole neighborhood can hear you.” She laughed and shook her head, “See, they are here now.” Standing up, she laced her fingers with Poe’s and said, “Let’s get out of here guys, before Poe breaks all of our ear drums.”
Sam laughed at Jazzy, even in her cranky state, she was so cute. “I can handle cranky Jazzy, but I just need her up and awake. We promised Sophia and Angelo that we will go sightseeing with them, and we don’t want a repeat of Vegas, when he hardly ever saw them the whole trip now do we?”
Mercedes rolled her eyes and pouted. “Fine, I’m up… And I’m going to drag my butt to the bathroom to take a shower now.” She got up and was heading towards the bathroom when she heard Poe’s words, “And who’s fault was that? You practically tied me up in Vegas. Perv…” She giggled, shook her head and went to take a shower. Half an hour later, she was dressed and waiting for Sophia and Angelo in the living room. “So where are we going today?”
Sam got up early that next day, excited to see Greece with his wife and friends. He went and jumped in the shower and a few minutes later he was out with a towel wrapped around his waist, heading over to the side of the bed where Jazzy slept. He kissed her sweetly on her cheek, “Wake up baby, we have a great day planned for us.” He gently nudged her to wake up.
"Mmm… Give me a few more minutes…" Mercedes whined and moved to away from Sam’s touch when she felt him nudging her. "I’m sleepy… You kept me up late last night." He didn’t stop and after a few minutes, she relented and sat up. "Fine… I’m up and cranky."
