The second we got back to Maxxie’s place I pulled him onto the couch and cuddled him like there was no tomorrow. I didn’t like seeing him upset. Especially not like this. As hard as I tried not to, I was literally going out of my mind worrying. I mean, earlier on I could barely get him to kiss me back. And even then when we were cuddling on the couch he was being quiet. Unnervingly quiet.
“Wanna talk about it?” I asked, pushing his hair back.
“Hmm?” That’s a start, I guess.
I smiled a little. "Everything. Anything. I'm worried about you, beautiful"
"There's no need to worry about me" he smiled back and kissed me.
"I've been told I worry too much" I said, kissing back.
He snuggled up against me and I chuckled, kissing the top of his head. He smiled slightly and I almost forgot my worries for a second. Almost. I snuggled with him for a while before eventually asking “Movie?"
"What d'you wanna watch?"
I smiled. "Your choice"
He hummed. "I dunno. A comedy?"
"Like I said; your choice" I said, kissing his cheek as he looked over at his pitifully small DVD rack.
"I don't have many DVDs here. I usually rent them"
"Guess I'll just have to move mine in" Actually, I should probably move in some of my stuff in general. Including most of my clothes. I guess going home to get my stuff hadn’t really been a priority for me.
He smiled and I smiled back.
"Not much point doing that til we've moved somewhere closer to your college, though"
I hugged him a little more. "There's no need to move"
"There's no point wasting money on travel. I mean unless you wanna live on your own" he shrugged, "it's up to you, gorgeous"
I sort of frowned at that. "Why would I want to live somewhere without you?"
He chuckled. "You're gonna be a student - you'll wanna have a social life that doesn't include me"
"You make it sound like me living with you's a bad thing" I laughed a little and he kissed me.
"I'd love to keep you here, I just know that you're gonna want more freedom than that"
I looked him straight in the eye. "I'm not going anywhere"
He smiled slightly and I pecked him on the lips, humming as he kissed back.
"We can still move closer to your college though. If you want" he said, resting his head on my shoulder.
I stroked his hair. "I'm happy here. Unless you want to move"
"I dunno. I've been in this apartment for five years, I wouldn't mind being a little further out of the city. But I don't mind, really"
I hummed a little and shut my eyes. I cuddled back as he cuddled me and kisses his neck after a while. He tilted his head and I kissed his neck a couple more times before he caught my lips with his own. I kissed back with a smile and he hummed. I smiled again and he smiled back.
I squeezed him gently. "I like it when you smile"
"I love you" he said, smiling a bit more.
"I love you too"
He kissed me again and I kissed back, humming. He pressed his forehead to mine and I cuddled him a tiny bit more.
"I didn't think it was possible to care about someone this much" he mumbled, smiling slightly.
I smiled back and blushed a little. It’s more than possible, Maxxie. What isn’t possible is caring about someone as much as I care about you. I love you so much it hurts. And I know that sounds lame and corny but it’s true. It physically hurts to be away from you. Which sounds equally as lame and corny.
He giggled a bit and I blushed a tiny bit more, burying my head in his neck. I’m not sure if I was blushing more at him giggling at me or at what had just run through my head about loving him so much it hurts. He huggled me and I sighed contentedly, humming as he kissed my jaw. Maxxie went back to huggling and I cuddled him tighter, if that’s even possible. We stayed like that for God knows how long, neither of us really planning on moving til the other did. So much for putting on a movie.
