I’d been all snuggled up to Maxxie without a care in the world when I realised something. Something horrific. Something disturbing. Something so terrifying it’d make prodding a lion look like stroking a kitten. “Oh my God"
"We never told Ava"
He thought for a moment."Oh yeah"
"How did we not tell her?"
"I think we got distracted by Cay vanishing"
"I need a phone"
He groaned. "That involves moving"
"I'd quite like to live, though"
"I'm not joking. She'll actually kill me for not telling her"
"Well you know where the phone is" he said and curled up under the comforter.
I went and got the phone, sitting back on the bed and dialling Ava’s number. I didn’t really care that the call charge would probably be a ridiculous amount of money, I’d worry about that later.
“Hello?” answered a very tired sounding Ryan.
“Hey, Ryan. Can I speak to Ava?”
He groaned. “Aves, it’s for you... It’s Hadley”
“Hadley, I love it when you call me but it’s five in the morning” I heard Ava say and suddenly remembered the eighteen hour time difference. Oops.
“Sorry about that but I remembered you’d kill me if I didn’t tell you so... Are you free in March?”
“...I think so. Why?” she asked kind of suspiciously.
I grinned even though she couldn’t see. “Cause you’re coming to the States for my wedding”
“I’ll send you an invite and everything but at the end of March, you and Ryan are coming over here for mine and Maxxie’s wedding”
“Oh, Hadley, that’s wonderful” she said and I could practically hear the smile in her voice. “Can I speak to Maxxie for a second?”
“Sure, let me just wake him up”
I prodded him but he didn’t move. I prodded him again and he groaned, opening one eye.
"The pregnant one wishes to speak with you"
He took the phone and mumbled "H'lo?"
I could only guess what she was saying. I should’ve put it on loudspeaker before I handed it over.
"Because your brother picked the date.” He whined. "I said June, but I couldn't disagree with the puppy eyes, could I?"
No but you could’ve changed it when I asked.
"Sowwy Ava." He smiled a little."I will"
"I know you mean it. I promise you, I'll take good care of him"
Oh, that’s what.
"There won't be any need"
He hummed. "'Kay. Sleep well"
He dropped the phone on the floor and snuggled up under the comforter again.
"What did she want?"
"She told me to look after you, and I promised her I will"
I hummed and he held his arms up for a hug. I huggled him and he shifted so I had room to lie down. I snuggled up to him once I was lying and he cuddled me. He kissed me chest, making me giggle.
“What’re you gigging at?” he asked with a smile.
I smiled back. "That tickles"
He did it again, making me giggle once more and he rested his head on my shoulder. I started playing with his hair and he smiled, closing his eyes. I kept playing with his hair but stopped when he started dozing off.
"No more sleeping. I'm hungry" I said, kissing the top of his head.
"What d'you wanna eat?"
"Food" I grinned and he chuckled.
He reluctantly got out of bed and went to make something for breakfast. I stayed in bed, sitting up when Maxxie came back in with pancakes. I smiled and he smiled back, feeding some to me. I giggled as I ate them and snuggling up to him once I was done. He snuggled up to me once he’d eaten his.
"I love you too, Bunny" he smiled.
I smiled back. "Fancy doing something today?"
He hummed slightly. "What d'you wanna do?"
"I don't mind"
"Neither do I" he smiled and I chuckled.
"We seem to hit this problem many times"
He nodded a little d I kissed his nose. "It's up to you"
"Why me?" he chuckled and I smiled.
"Because I said so"
"We can find something out of town to do?"
I nodded and he smiled. I snuggled up to him a little and chuckled.
“You just want an excuse to see me half naked"
"I never need an excuse" he winked and I giggled.
“And just what were you planning on doing at the beach?"
He shrugged. "What do people normally do at the beach?"
"Swim, sunbathe and fuck, once it gets dark"
"Sounds good" he said with a baby grin.
I giggled and kissed him, humming as he kissed back. He nuzzled my neck and I hummed even more.
"So what do we need to take with us? I'm guessing butt plugs aren't allowed" he giggled and I felt my cheeks light up.
"Um, towels are helpful"
He giggled again.
"What?" I asked, embarrassed.
He grinned. "It's so easy to make you blush"
I pouted and he kissed me. He smiled when I kissed back and I kept up my pout, even if it had shrunk a little.
"Luff you too" I said, still pouting.
He prodded my lips up into a smile. "So towels and no sex toys. What else?"
"Umm... I don't know. Beach stuff"
He hummed. "Better go see if I've still got some trunks"
"You could always skip the trunks. I wouldn't complain"
"I know you wouldn't... But other people might have something to say about it"
I giggled. "They might not. You have a very cute ass"
He blushed a little."I'll at least wear some boxers. Not everyone appreciates a cute ass"
"Shame" I chuckled.
"When it gets dark maybe" he giggled and I grinned.
He kissed me and I kissed back.
"Well, if we're gonna go to the beach, we should really have a shower and get ready, eh"
“Yep" I giggled.
Neither of us moved and Maxxie prodded me a little.
"Get your ass in the shower"
"Is that an order?" I asked, trying not to giggle.
"Yes" he smirked.
"What if I don't move?"
"I'll have to find a way to make you move"
I didn’t move and he prodded me. I still didn’t move and he tried to pick me up. He kind of failed and I giggled. He huffed, getting out of bed. I stayed where I was and he smirked a little.
"You've got an hour to get ready, doll, or I'm leaving without you"
"Get me some boxers and I'm ready to roll"
He threw some boxers at me and went off to shower. Yeah, I made it about five minutes before I snuck in after him.
