Joely and Carl are enjoying their new relationship. They were good friends first and recently allowed their connection to transition to something more. After weeks of trading some extremely passionate kisses and caresses, both are ready to take their intimacy to a whole other level. Joely says the prospect of going all the way is just like Christmas day when you were little and still believed in Santa Claus. Seeing the pretty presents all wrapped up under the tree and spotting that big one with your name on it. It’s the anticipation of finally being able to tear off the pretty paper to see what surprises lie inside. She’s petrified that the anticipation has been so overwhelming that they will both be disappointed by the present inside. She imagines that Carl may have some reservations as well. Then she wonders if she’s just over thinking the whole thing.
Although Joely jokes about what might go wrong, you can see the excitement in her face. It shimmers in her eyes and when she says Carl’s name you can hear the desire in her voice. Together, they’re like love struck teenagers about to combust. That alone tells me when the moment happens for them, it will be the best of everything either has ever imagined.
