When we've just about caught our breath back, I feel Hadley's finger tracing circles over my torso and I smile, turning my head to kiss him. I hum as he kisses back, keeping up the circles over my skin.
"I love you."
"I love you too," I murmur, amazingly content, considering the fight I just had with his mum. He hugs my waist and I fold an arm over him, pulling him close. He shuts his eyes, smiling, and I kiss his forehead. Humming, he cuddles me some more and I begin to feel sleep tugging at me. I can't seem to stop my eyes from closing and Hadley doesn't attempt to keep me awake. I let out another hum of my own, "I love you so fucking much," I mumble quietly. My eyes flicker open just long enough to see him smile before he pecks me on the lips.
"I love you so fucking much as well." With a smile, I drift off to sleep.
After what I guess is a few hours, I kind of half wake up to a smile from my gorgeous boyfriend. I smile back, resting my head on his shoulder as he huggles me. He hums a little.
"What Mom said about not wanting to see you again... I don't care about not seeing her and Dad." That wakes me up a bit.
"No, you should visit them, Bunny. I mean, I'm not gonna make you, I just don't want you to end up hating your parents like I do."
"I won't hate them..."
I shrug slightly. "No, probably not. Still don't think you should cut yourself off just because they hate me."
"They don't hate you, it's just Mom being a bitch."
"That's one way of putting it," I mutter with a wry smile.
"There's another way?" he gives a tiny laugh and I think for a moment.
"I'm sure there's a nicer way of putting it, but I can't seem to think of one." He chuckles and I smile slightly, cuddling him a little tighter. He smiles too, humming. I'm too warm and comfy here, but I don't wanna move. I'm just gonna end up falling asleep again. Hadley seems to notice this and giggles, planting a kiss on my cheek. I snuggle into him and close my eyes, smiling to myself again when I feel him playing with my hair.
"You can go back to sleep if you want," he says quietly.
"No," I mumble, "I'm just enjoying being here with you, to be honest." He cuddles me a bit closer.
"Did I ever tell you how much I love you?"
"You might've mentioned it once or twice," I smile. Smiling back, he kisses me softly. I match the gentleness as I kiss back. He hums and sort of kisses me again. I run a hand through his hair, making him hum again.
A couple of hours later, we manage to pull ourselves out of bed and get dressed, heading back towards the house to get our stuff.
Hadley whines a little, "Can't Cayden just get it for us?"
"Probably. I don't have my phone with me though, so I can't ask." It just happens to be in my suitcase... where it's been for the last few days, to be perfectly honest. He whines again. "I'll go in if you want. You can wait in the car."
"You're gonna brave going in a house you've been banished from?" I laugh slightly.
"You've not met my dad."
"She's just gonna shout at you if you go in there."
"It'll be like home from home," I say in an almost cheerful voice. He chuckles, but I don't think he quite realises that I mean it. At least by the time we get back there, she might not have thrown all our stuff on a bonfire and gotten rid of it all. Hopefully. Depends if she's as nuts as my dad.
When we get there, the look on his face says it all. He really, really doesn't wanna go inside. I lean over and kiss him firmly, getting out of the car before he can really argue.
And then I realise I can't get in. I turn back and ask for the keys. When he says he doesn't have the house keys with him, I just sort of shrug and go round the back hoping that I can get in the back door.
