Oh. My. God. I’m actually a woman. A teary, over-emotional woman. Maxxie had been gone like two days and I was already curled up on the couch, cuddling one of his shirts to death. It didn’t even smell like him anymore. I had the day off work and I was supposed to be catching up on my course but instead I was lounging around with a shirt, watching old cartoons. Which was when my phone rang.
"Hey, Bunny" Maxxie’s voice rang down the phone.
"Hey. I've missed you, gorgeous"
"I missed you too. How're you doing?"
"I haven't died yet so I'm doing something right" I giggled a little. "How's London?"
"Kinda dull, but at least I've not been forced to stay over my parent's place"
"That's good, I guess. Everything going okay?"
"Well as well as it can do when you've spent half your time avoiding your father like he's some kind of crazed axe murderer. Has Alex been over yet?"
"Yeah. He taught me how to cook a couple things"
He chuckled a little. "He's not a bad cook. Glad to hear he's been giving you something to do at least"
"Brent's been keeping me pretty busy too. He kinda pestered me into working late for the next week" Yeah, more like the next fortnight.
"Is he being any nicer to you yet?"
"Sort of. He speaks to me, at least"
"S'pose that's better than nothing. Are you gonna have time for catch up reading if you're working late though?"
"I think so. Either way, I can always start next year if I don't get it done"
He hummed. "Yeah. oh, before I forget, the old git says hi"
"I hope you remembered to tell them I said hi" I chuckled. I’d forgotten to remind him when he left.
"I did. My mum sort of nodded and smiled, and my dad wasn't there to say anything, thankfully. But granddad said hi. Before he went off on his 'use a condom' lecture"
I laughed and he whined.
"It's not funny"
"It's a little funny"
He huffed and I giggled. Poor baby.
"I dun like you anymore"
"Yes you do"
"I bought you a little present to make up for being away so long, but I think I'll keep it now"
"Meanie. I'll take your Christmas present back"
"That's even more mean" he whined and I giggled. "I wanna come home" he sighed a little.
"I want you to come home as well. How much longer are you gonna be?"
"Two days. I'm practically counting down the hours"
I smiled even though he couldn’t see it through the phone. "I was worried your mom'd want you there for like a week or something"
"She does, but I told her that the flight was already booked"
I chuckled. "Well, try and have fun. And like I said before you left, come back in one piece"
I giggled. "Good. As fun as being your nurse sounds, I don't like the idea of it"
"It'd be good practice"
"It would if I was studying to be a nurse"
"Shush. Same thing in Maxxie land"
I hummed. I guess I can’t really argue against his own little land. "Sounds like a really shit amusement park for paedos"
"I'm offended now"
"Well that was my intention" I said, trying not to laugh.
"Fine. I’ll change my ticket and stay longer, shall I?"
"Okay. Be nice to your mom"
He huffed and I heard him put the phone down. Not like hanging up, just putting it down on the table or something.
"Get back here, Cinderella"
"No" I heard faintly.
"I need to pee" he said and, knowing him, wandered off to go pee.
"Dude, c'mon, I'm gonna hang up on you" I sort of shouted down the phone so he’d maybe be able to hear.
"I'll be there in a minute" he kinda shouted back and I grumbled a little bit.
I heard the toilet flush and I was still grumbling when he picked up the phone again.
"What're you grumbling about?"
"You fucking off to go pee"
"Would you rather I pissed myself then?" he laughed slightly and I thought about it for a second.
"Yes" I giggled.
"Cheers, Bunny boy," he chuckled.
"Huh. What're you up to for the rest of the day, then? Apart from preferring me pissing myself"
"Watching cartoons. And maybe cuddling one of your shirts some more"
Wait, did I really just say that last part out loud? I guess I at least didn’t tell him I was already cuddling one of his shirts... "What's cute?"
I let out a tiny whine as I felt my cheeks heat up. "No I'm not"
"I love you"
"I love you too" I said and he yawned a little bit. “What time is it over there?”
"I dunno. Late"
I hummed a little. "Go to bed, dork"
"I wanna talk with you though"
I smiled again. "You're adorable. You know that, right?"
"How am I adorable?"
"You just are"
He chuckled slightly. "Not as adorable as a certain Bunny, though"
"I wouldn't say Bugs Bunny was adorable "
He huffed and I giggled.
"Yeah, well Bugs Bunny can't be adorable, 'cause he's not my Bunny"
I blushed a teeny bit, thankful that he couldn’t see. "Hurry up and get home, 'kay?"
He chuckled a little. “I will”
“And go to bed. I don’t want you all sleepy”
"I love you. I miss you. And I'll see you in two days" Ugh, why couldn’t that be like two hours instead?
"I love you too. I'll call you again tomorrow"
"I'll try and text you as well"
He hummed a bit. "Good" And then yawned again.
"Bed, gorgeous" I chuckled and he whined. I just mimicked him.
"Go. Or I'll never ever ever sleep with, kiss or molest you again"
"Okay, okay, I'm going" he laughed, "love you"
"Love you too"
He hung up with a sigh and I cuddled his shirt a little more. I guess I should go do some catch up, huh?
