I woke up with a massive headache. Wow. It was late. Last night was bittersweet. I hated this.
"Ariana," I called, searching the room.
"She's out," Kelly said.
"Why?" I asked, getting nervous.
"She said she was hungry."
"We have food here," I said, looking for my cell phone in the sheets.
"Why are you freaking out?" she asked, chopping a tomato.
"What day is it?"
"It's Sunday," she said.
It's been a long week. So much happened. Started with me kissing Wren, Wren turning me, then the hotel, then the sex, then the fight, then Savannah finding out, then Ariana being turned, then Noah, then the kiss, then the meeting, then the kiss with Noah, then Wren's I love you, then... this. Now. Holy crap.
"Wow," I said.
I haven't been to classes all week. What was my future?
"Why is someone's care here?" Kelly asked.
I looked outside. It was Wren's. I shrugged.
"Why are you guys so secretive?" Kelly asked.
I realized we haven't been talking to her. We've been so caught up in things that we nearly forgot about her.
"Aww," I whispered.
"I feel so bad."
"It's just that... we're..."
Could I tell her? Someone knocked on the door. It was Noah. Kelly smiled and left the room. I smiled.
"About yesterday," he said.
"Yeah..." I said, rubbing my forearm.
"Are you and Wren over?" he asked.
He came over and kissed me. He made me feel so tiny. I felt like I could just snuggle into him and feel protected. He pulled and I felt out of breath.
"I just woke up," I said, "I probably look disgusting."
"You look beautiful," he said.
"Lemme just go brush," I said,pointing to the bathroom.
I walked inside, grabbing my brush and toothpaste. I rubbed it forcefully against my teeth. I fixed my hair, washed my face, and put on deodorant. I walked outside, nonchalantly into the tiny little kitchen. He was making eggs. Did every guy know how to cook? I sat on the stool by the counter. He placed the eggs on my plate. And he leaned over the counter and kissed me.
"Let's go somewhere today," he said.
"I can't," I said, "I have to go and ask my teachers about the classes I missed."
"I don't know. After I take a shower... and stuff."
"I can join you," he winked.
I laughed. I finished the eggs and washed my plate.
"We can hang out here for now," I said.
"We can," he said.
I sat on the couch and turned the T.V. on. He started to play with my hair. I smiled. He leaned in to kiss me. I deepened it. And a sudden burst of energy and anxiety ran through me. I wasn't thinking straight. I really wished I was.
"Wait," I whispered.
I turned the T.V. off. I bit my lip, wrapping my arms around his neck. He placed his hands on my ribs as he fell back on the couch. His fingers were tangled in my hair. I searched for the zipper on his jeans. I don't know what got over me. I got up and took my shirt off.
"Damn," he whispered.
He scooped me up in his arms and carried me to the bed. He played with the elastic of my panties.
"Are you sure?"
"Yeah," I said, as I leaned in to kiss his neck.
I nibbled on his ear. I didn't even get to make my bed. But that didn't matter now. Oh god. What was wrong with me?
