I drove at a fast speed and there was no need to dodge cars, I could make the people get out of the way, so the original hour’s drive only took about half an hour. I normally wouldn’t drive this fast, but I too was tired and I didn’t know how long I would hold out. When we got to the house I didn’t want to wake Luca, but I had to. There was no way I could lift him to the house and I didn’t want to use his telekinesis. So I nudged him softly, “Luca, Luca, we’re here sweet. We’re home.”
“Mmm,” he stirred, opening his eyes blearily. He looked out of the window, “oh yeah.” He nodded and I smiled.
“Come on, you can sleep in a proper bed now. Let’s go.” I smiled, getting out of the car. He followed and I locked the car before grabbing his hand, walking up to the house. Ben was stood there, he must have heard the car pull up outside. Luca ignored him as he took my hand again; I smiled weakly at him as I was pulled upstairs.
As he flipped onto the bed I couldn’t help but wonder, "Why'd you pull me up here?"
"To go to sleep... I wasn't really thinking. You can go back down if you want," he shrugged, getting changed.
I kissed his cheek softly. "I'll be back up soon."
"Okay," he muttered, returning the kiss before climbing under the covers.
"You... were right." *to Ben*
"He caught up with you then."
"I hate you."
"That doesn't surprise me," he sighed.
"Why were you right?" I moaned, sitting down on the kitchen table."
"Would you rather I'd been wrong, then?"
"I don't know. Why didn't that surprise you?"
"Because if I hadn't stayed, none of this would have happened."
"Oh no, forgive and forget and all that." I smiled.
"Huh, so why do you hate me then?"
"Because you were right, you normally are."
"But isn't it better I was right? I mean, you have him still. I'd say you were lucky if the kid didn't have so many issues," he smiled slightly.
"I guess." I sighed, wrapping my arms around his waist, my head resting on his stomach. "Right again." He hugged me back quietly. I yawned and slipped off the table. "I should go back upstairs; I wouldn't want Luca to think anything was going on."
"Yeah," he nodded.
I kissed his cheek softly, "So, what're you gonna do. Stay or leave?"
"I'll probably book my flights tomorrow. For the best, really," he smiled sadly.
"I'll miss you." I whimpered.
"I'll miss you too. But Cancer has my phone number. You'll call me, right?"
"I'll probably send you random things, too. I'll take a camera and make my own postcards," he grinned.
"I look forward to that then." I smiled back, hugging him tightly again.
"Yeah," he muttered into my hair as he hugged me back. After a moment, he pulled back, still smiling. "Off to bed with ya," he winked.
"But I'm not tired!" I whined before laughing. "I will see you in the morning though won't I? You won't just disappear."
"Of course. I don't do disappearing acts."
"Good." I grinned, kissing him again, but this time grazing his lips softly before going to walk upstairs, he said nothing and I silently got changed. Hmm, I wonder how my nightgown got so small. It was now on my upper thighs. I hadn’t grown, perhaps it had just shrunk. I’ll have to get rid of it tomorrow, it hugged so tightly to me. Well, one night won’t hurt. Even though I look like a slut in it, fitting I guess.
Luca was already asleep so I made sure not to do anything to wake him up as I slipped in beside him, tugging my covers around me.
