Maria sat at the counter finishing her eggs Max made her. "PLEASE!!" she yelled to Michael who was in their bedroom trying on his uniform. "I really want to see you in it!" "NO!" he yelled, "Only if the apartment is on fire!" Maria got up and put her plate in the sink and opened the junk drawer. Michael's suspenders hung at the side of his pants and he reached for his shirt when the fire alarm went off. He ran to the kitchen and saw Maria standing on a chair holding a lighter up to the fire alarm. "OH BABY!!" she yelled, "ANYONE GOT A DOLLAR?" Michael tried to fight the smile that took over his mouth. Licking his lower lip he grabbed Maria and flung her over his shoulder. "That wasn't funny Maria! What if the apartment was REALLY on fire?" "Then you would have to save me." she smiled as he put her on their bed. Michael held her down with one hand and looked for hand cuffs with the other."What are you doing Mr.Guerin?" When Maria saw the hand cuffs she smiled. "I need to set the fire alarm off more often!" she said as he hand cuffed her to the bed. "Now that you're tied down, away from trouble, I'm taking a shower." he said pulling off his pants and socks. "Let me come!! I can be your washcloth!!" Maria said with a smile. "No, bad little girls have to sit in time out!" "You mean you're going to take a shower and leave me hand cuffed to the bed ALONE?" she said in the most inniocent voice she could, "I'm so cold" she whispered. "You're cold?" he repeated. Maria shook her head up and down. Michael crawled up the bed so his body hoovered over hers. He kissed her neck, then kissed his way to one of her breats lightly biting one nipple which in return made Maria press her body closer to his. Then he kissed his way down to her belly button and a sigh excaped from Maria's mouth. "Looks like you're pretty warm to me!" he said getting up. He grabbed his towel and headed to the bathroom. "Michael..." Maria cried. Michael put his head in the doorway, "yes?" he asked. "Come back and play?" "Got to take a's Christmas Eve...and I promised someone I would help him can just lay there and look sexy okay? okay." He came back into the room and grabbed his cloths. "Why are you taking your cloths?" Maria asked "I can't come back from the shower naked and wet and have the bad little child look at me can I? Noooo. Because you are being punished." Michael smiled and left the room. "Noooo because your being punished" Maria mocked. "What did you say?" he asked. "Nothing!" she yelled back. "It better be nothing because if I were tied to the bed I would keep my mouth shut!" Michael turned on the water. "If you were tied to the bed, I would be doing naughty things to you!" she said after she was sure he had gotten in. Michael got out of the shower a few minutes later, dressed and left. Maria herd the door shut from the bedroom. "Michael..." she yelled, "if this is one of your stupid's not funny! I know you didn't leave me here.....hand cuffed to the bed....NAKED!" "And I want purple roses" Isabel said to the wedding director. "Purple roses are very hard and about red roses." she asked. "I'm marrying a doctor, he can pay for them.....and you are the weddind director, find me purple roses for this spring or you will be directing anothe wedding!" Isabel said as Alex showed up. "I'll do my best!" she said, "Good day." she got in her car and left. "Bye" Alex said as she drove off. The two went into the house. "I have a present for you beautiful." Alex said with a smile. He pulled a dozen purple roses out of the fridge. "Alex...they are so beautiful!!" she said as she smelled them, "and the's beautiful!! But where are we going to put them?" Alex looked at her. "Hang on one moment!" he said. He went to the front door and opened it waving in two movers. "Where would you like this?" Max asked. "Kitchen" Alex replied Michael and Max moved the table into the kitchen. "How about we put them on the table?" Alex asked. Isabel smiled. "You sneak!" she said putting the flowers down on the table. "What am I going to do with you guys?" "Love us and don't make us crazy?" Michael said and smiled. Isabel smiled. "Funny Michael!" "I asked the guys to unload a majority of the stuff today, but I forgot they had to get ready for the party." Alex said. "The party?" Isabel asked, "OH MY GOD! The Christmas Party! It's today!" Isabel grabbed her purse and keys. "Im sorry, I really have to go...I'll see you guys tonight!!" Isabel ran out of the house and pulled out of the drive way. The guys laughed. "Christmas Nazi!" they said in unison and laughed. "Oh, I herd about the graduations...congradulations!!" Alex said shaking each of their hands. "We start tomorrow." Michael said running his hands through his hair. "But tomorrow is Christmas..." Alex said confused. "Is your phone plugged in?" Michael asked, "I need to call Maria." "Nope!" Alex said Michael reached into this coat pocket and pulled out a little red phone. He dialed the number and as the phone he began to laugh. He hung up the phone and put it back in his coat pocket. "Whats wrong?" Max asked. "This morning after you left, I went to try on my uniform. Maria wanted to see it and I said no...unless the apartment was burning down. So Maria took a lighter and made the smoke alarm go off. I took her in our room and handcuffed her to the bed. Then I got in the shower, got dressed and left." Michael explained. The guys laughed. "So let me get this straight.." Alex began, "Maria is handcuffed to your bed right now?" Michael laughed, "Ya...and to top it all off...she's naked! I took her towel and threw it off the bed!" The guys bust out laughing again. "Michael you are gonna get it!" Max said, "Maria is gonna kill you!" "Ya...we should get going!" Michael said as he walked out to the Jetta,"Alex we'll see you tonight!" "BYE!" Alex said as he laughed. Michael pulled up in the parking lot after he dropped Max off. He sat in the car taking his last breathe before Maria ripped him a new one. He got out of the car and walked into the apartment. "Maria..." he began, "Maria I'm sor-" he was cutt off when he entered his room. She was sleeping. Michael walked over and uncuffed her. He placed her delicate arms at her side and covered her up. He slowly started to walk out of the room when something hit him on the head. He wipped around. "I thought you were sleeping!" He spit out. "Ya..and I thought you were jokeing when you left the house! But no, you just left me here, hand cuffed to the bed!" she yelled. He couldn't help to laugh as he rubbed his head, "I'm really sorry....Maria...that wasn't part of the "you're a bad little girl" really wasn't" Maria grabbed a shirt and put it of. It was his favorite shirt of his and it looked even better on her. She got up and went to the bathroom. Michael followed her but Maria slammed the door in his face. "I get the point and I'm really, really sorry!" Michael said as he leaned his head on the door. Maria whipped the door open and Michael landed on top of her. They both sat there laughing. Maria got up and starddled him like he starddles his motorcycle. "Look what you did to my wrists!" she yelled showing him the red areas from where the hand cuffs had been. Michael took her wrists and kissed them. The red areas went away. "Oh real cute Mr.Guerin!" she said sarcastically. "I love you." Maria leaned down and put her head on his chest, "I know....thats why you're wearing a tie to the party tonight!" "Oh no! No, no, tie!" " can sleep on the couch and you won't be getting any until I think I deserve it!" she said getting up. She plugged in her culing iron. Michael just lay on the floor staring up her shirt. Maria started to brush her teeth when she realized what Michael was doing. She went to her room and put on some underwear. She came back and Michael looked up her shirt but when she looked down, she saw his smile turn to a frown. He got up and walked out. "Where are you going?" Maria asked after she spit. "To get ready!" he shouted back. "You mean your not going to lay there and watch me?" she joked. "Not if your going to wear panties! It's not fun that way!" he said going through his ties.
