I was finally ready for a weekend away after completing the work project. I told my boss I was going away and he asked if he could join me. We’d been working together on this project for quite some time and grew close. Since he was single and I was divorced, I saw no harm in him tagging along. I’d booked a weekend away at this amazing little cottage in the middle of nowhere. The best way for me to relax was to go back to nature and spend time in an isolated location. But, I found myself wondering how this experience would be with my boss there. Oh well, you only live once. We drove his 4 by 4 truck which had the right mechanism to concur the terrain, and arrived at the cottage late in the afternoon. It was chilly, so I set about finding the heating unit in the house. We had to wait about an hour for the heating unit to warm the space, and then we finally took off our jackets. There were two bedrooms in the cottage, so my boss took one and me the other. We planned on chilling then getting some dinner ready later on. At around 6 pm, I started feeling cold and wondered what was happening. I went to the living room to find my boss, and he was checking the thermostat. It seemed the heat went out at some point, and it was too late to call anyone to come to check it that day. We turned off the heating unit and began preparing a fire. That night we ended up sleeping on the floor next to the fire and shared our first kiss.
