I was speechless when I stepped into our honeymoon suite in Thailand. The rooms overlooked the cliffs and the clear beach next to the hotel was already inviting me for a relaxing swim. I stepped into my fancy bikini, one of the many I bought for this occasion. This one was cherry red with thin black straps.
I swam for an hour before building an appetite. Then, sitting on a deck chair, I got engrossed in the thriller I brought with me. The French fries and Margarita were perfect accompaniments to the story.
Out of the corner of my eyes, I noticed him staring at me from a deck chair a little away from mine. I removed my sunglasses and raised my eyebrow.
‘There’s a party on this beach tonight, you wanna come?’
So, what if I caught my would-be husband kissing my best friend and called off the wedding? Going ahead for my honeymoon all by myself was still a good idea!
