My boyfriend had me completely fooled last summer when he said we had no plans.
I was hoping we would get away when we both had time off work.
But, he said he had to go somewhere with his brother and was acting suspiciously. I spoke to my best friend about it, and she told me not to overthink the situation. It turned out she was in on the surprise and got me out of the house one day. She asked me to take her to the farmers market when my boyfriend packed my bags and came to pick me up. We started driving on a different route, and I found myself in a beach house. He had planned it out well since the place was lovely with an effective cooling system. That was the first thing I noticed when I got a chance to walk around the fantastic beach property. The AC system was always on as per the owner’s instructions to keep the space comfortable. It was a scorching summer season, and no one could survive without air conditioning. Over, a few days into the stay and I was regretting why I had not insisted we book a hotel. The beach property owner was out of town when the AC unit stopped working. I woke up one night soaking wet only to realize the cooling unit had shut down. I went straight to the bathroom to take a shower after waking up my boyfriend. He tried to reach the homeowner but was not successful. He went to check the thermostat and found it blank. We were not in a position to contact an AC mechanic to come and fix it because the area was new to us and remote. So, we kept the fan on and hoped the owner would get out messages soon. It was two days when the owner sent an HVAC technician to come and fix the faulty AC unit. By that time I was ready to leave and never return again.
