Gemme: NothingMature

When I woke up, last night was a blur. I mean, I had no idea how I ended up here. Luca was beside me and I hugged up close to him... I couldn’t remember a thing and it scared me. “Luca...” I whimpered.

 His eyes flickered open, "Mmm?" His voice was rough and he coughed slightly as he woke.

"What happened to me?" My voice trembled as I spoke; I was truly frightened but... if Luca is with me, then nothing that bad must have happened.

"You had a beer and went crazy," he coughed again, pushing himself up to get a drink from the sink in the bathroom

"Crazy? What did I do?” I paused, that wasn’t the only thing that didn’t add up. “One beer... Alcohol can't do anything to me."

"I dunno," he shrugged, walking back over to the bed, "I'd say someone spiked your drink, but drugs shouldn't have an effect either."

"I haven't got all my power back yet. Things are still fuzzy."

"Want me to get you something to eat? Or some water?"

"Some water please."

"'Kay. I'll be back in a minute, I doubt you want bathroom water," he laughed, walking over to the door.

"Wait, bathroom water'll be fine. Just don't leave me."

"Oh... sure," he shrugged and turned back, walking into the bathroom again instead. I pulled the covers around me tightly, trying not to cry... I don't know why I wanted to cry. But I wanted Luca... I really needed him.

He came back with the glass from the sink filled with water, sitting beside me. He put his arm around me and handed the water over. I gulped it down in one and placed it gently on the table before flinging myself at Luca. "God, I love you." I cried.

"I love you too," he murmured, holding me firmly.

"I don't think I've ever realised how much I need you till now."

"Need me?"

I nod, "what a mess I'd be without you." He laughed softly and squeezed me, kissing me. I looked into his eyes mournfully and kissed him back with a soft whimper, clinging to him, just like he did; so childishly.

"Do you really not remember what happened at all?"

"No, nothing, well, I got up to where I offered to pay for the drinks,” he frowned slightly and I got even more worried, “how bad was I?” He played the memory to me and it all came flooding back. I was such a mess.

I flinched, "I tried to...God I'm sorry."

"S'ok," he muttered, "it's pretty hazy anyways, I had quite a lot to drink."

"I guess I do want you. Just, I don't think that's what I meant last night."

"Yeah..."

I shook my head, slipping out of the bed... I was already dressed. "You have to get back on the road now, don't you?"

"Yeah... Um, I think I'm gonna trail behind for a bit in my car. I don't really wanna be on the bus."

"Okay."

"You don't mind do you?"

"Why would I mind?"

"I dunno," he shrugged, "You gonna take the bus or the car?"

"Oh umm."

He hesitated a moment, sighing, “Sorry. I didn't mean to make you choose like that."

"Its fine, I'll go in the car with you, if I'm not a distraction."

"No you won't be. We can have Alice in the car if you want, you two can get to know each other again?"

"I don't know..." I still wasn’t completely sure on the idea.

"S-Sorry," he shook his head, "don’t worry... I'll sell the car and go in the bus."

"What?"

"I'll go in the bus."

"Why the sudden change of mind?"

"'Cause I'm being stupid. Shall we go?"

"You're not... not really."

"I am, I'll take the bus," he paused, suddenly remembering what had happened, shuddering, "ugh. Car. Sorry." I frowned in dismay for a while, moving round to him and hugging him wordlessly.

He hugged back and kissed the top of my head, "sorry, I just can't be anywhere near him right now. Maybe tomorrow.

"You have no need to apologise to me for that. I do understand."

"I know I just feel bad about making you choose between the car and the bus."

"Don't." I smiled, kissing him firmly and lovingly. "I shouldn't have had to choose, you're always my first option."

"Mmm, I love you," he mumbled, kissing back

"I know," I paused, before giving the stereotypical response.

He sighed again, "We should get going."

"One sec." I mumbled, kissing him again, firmly holding my lips against his. He returned the kiss warmly, smiling, when I pulled back I too was smiling and I nodded, “now, let’s get going.”

The End
