I Laughed Silently, He So Deserved ThatMature

I woke up to seeing Kyle getting dressed. What time was it? I looked at my alarm clock and saw that it was 4 in the morning. Why is he getting up so early? Kyle starts to head to the door when I grab his shirt.

"Where are you going?" I mumbled. He leaned onto the bed and brushed his hand threw my hair and whispered.

"Go back to sleep, I'm going to work."

"But it's 4 in the morning?"

"I know but I have the morning shift today plus my normal shift. I'll be back by dinner."

"But we were supposed to have dinner at my grandparents. It's Friday remember?" Kyle sighed and put his head in his hand.

"Sorry, just tell them I had to work. I have to go, bye," he said. He kissed my forehead and left. He always has the morning shift, and the night shift. Why is he working so much?

"Whoa wait," I said, sitting up quickly. I just realized that he kissed my forehead. And we were acting as if we were a couple. Okay, gotta calm down. It was just the morning tiredness getting to me. I sighed and walked to the bathroom. "I cant sleep now because of him!" I got cleaned up and did my normal routine: eat breakfast, clean the apartment, watch TV, and read a little. Later on, I took the bus to my grandparents and had dinner.

"Where's Kyle, is he working again?" Grandpa grumbles, stuffing chicken in his mouth.

"He is certainly a very hard worker isn't he Codey," says Grandma.

"Yea, he sure is. But lets talk about something else. How's your bowling tournament going?" I said, trying to change the subject. Grandma looked at me strangely, then decided to go along with it.

"Oh we're doing great! If we win one more, we get to go to the championship." They both talked about how they've played and how many strikes they got. I just sat and listened. It was like old times again.

After getting a bunch of hugs from Grandma and a container of leftovers for Kyle, I went home and went to sleep. I heard Kyle try to come inside quietly. Is he just now coming home? I knew he was going to do his normal shift but the night shift too? I never do get to see him anymore. Maybe Kyle's doing something else and is just saying he's going to work. Oh well, it's his life, I cant stop him. But I really am starting to miss him. He bummed into a table and held in the scream of pain. I laughed silently, he so deserved that, then noticed he was coming over to me. He sat down beside me and patted my head. It felt nice. Then he kissed my forehead. That felt nice too. I pretended to just wake up.

"Hey," I mumbled, "Did you just get home?" He smiled.

"Yea, sorry. It's 10pm so go back to sleep."

"There's food in the fridge that my grandma wanted to give you," I said, still sleepy. He looked over to the kitchen and then back at me.

"Thanks, I have to apologize to them for not showing up." He got close to my ear, "Go to sleep, I have something to tell you tomorrow." I closed my eyes and started to fall asleep. I wonder what it is? Maybe it's about work and he is going to do more hours. What if he doesn't want me to live here anymore? Cant be stupid Codey, we've been really good friends. He'd never do that to me, I mean, it's only been about 3 weeks! But maybe he's already tired of me and I'm in the way of his love life. Ugh, I have to stop watching stupid TV dramas. I cant panic like this, I'll just have to wait till morning.

The End
