Since we came, mom and I hadn't talked at all except for the occasional good mornings and hellos. Other then that, we didn't speak at all. I wanted to develop the relationship between her and I but I never did, I never knew how to. So when I brought Evan home, I was quite nervous to how she might react with me asking her if he could live here for some time.
When she smiled and listened to the whole story patiently and finally said yes, I felt like I could've hugged her. Evan here, in my home, would make the feeling that there was a missing piece in the puzzle was complete. It would be perfect with him here. I will help him patch things up with his parents even if they're unbelievably ruthless. I'd probably regret saying bye to him then but for now, I'm going to be happy for what I have.
Snapping out of my thoughts, I looked up at Evan's face as he played around with strands of my hair.
"Is there anything else that you need?" I asked.
He looked into my eyes and said passionately, "I've got everything I want."
My heart beat quickened immediately as I felt the blush spread through my cheeks. I wondered if he could hear it. If he could, that would be terribly embarassing.
"What are you thinking about?" He asked putting an arm around my back and adjusting me so I was cradled against his chest.
"You," I said simply. He now held me in a tight embrace. "Who else would I think about?"
The fact that our house had only two rooms was going to be a problem for my mother. There was no guest room for where Evan could stay.
"I'll go sleep on the couch," he said to my mother.
"No, it's alright," she said shaking her head. "It'll be very uncomfortable for you there. You can sleep in Ada's room. Her bed can fit around three people anyway. Just put pillows between you two and I think that will be fine."
The very thought of Evan and me together the whole night made my heart skip a beat.
"Is that really okay Ms. Knowles?" Evan asked, concerned. He seemed to be thinking along the same lines as me.
My mom smiled and nodded. "Good night you two, sleep well." And just before she left, she winked at me. I couldn't help but grin back. I turned to Evan and looked up at him, his emerald eyes sparkled as he leaned in toward me and whispered into my ear, "Ready for our sleepover Ada?"
