Penny - The DarkMature

"Well that was kinda awkward." I said as I snuggled up to Jake in bed. 

"Tell me about it" he wrapped his arms around me. 

"Hey can we have the light off tonight?" I asked, 

"If you want. Why the dark though?" flicking the switch next to the bed he sat there waiting for an answer. 

"I like the dark. It's peaceful. There's nothing in it to be worried about, just pure darkness. I suppose it's like a clean slate." 

"There could be things lurking in it though." 

"Like what?" 

"Lies. Cheating and pain."

"But the point is that you can't see it. It's hidden."  

"Do you like things being hidden?" Jake asked slowly. 

"I don't know." Thinking about it I really didn't know if I liked things hidden, and it worried me a little. "But you can find things in the darkness." 

"Light?" 

"Yes I suppose so. But you can find other things." 

"Like what?" 

"Like incredibly handsome vampires who have there arms wrapped around  you." I smiled in the darkness.

"Yeah I suppose that is a plus" he laughed and kissed the top of my head. 

"How do I deserve this?" I asked softly, 

"Deserve what?" 

"You. This. Plus a wonderful family"

"I don't know either." 

"Hey!" 

"I'm kidding! Don't kill me" Jake laughed.

"You totally know I could though" I smiled, 

"Of course. Right, that's enough philosophical talk for tonight."

"Why not? I'm like yoda" I laughed, 

"Why don't we go for a walk?" 

"Am I allowed out now?" 

"I suppose so." I could hear his smile in the darkness,

"Well thank you for your approval." I got up and walked towards the balcony, 
"Can we go through the front door please?" Jake laughed, 

"I suppose so."

"Oh why thank you for your approval." we laughed, 

Walking out into the hall, hand in hand, there was a small "ahem" behind us. Turning, there was India and Leo. "Where are you too going?" 

"For a walk" I smiled,

"Mind if we come with?" India asked a little doubtfully, I looked up at Jake who shrugged smiling. 

"Sure" Jake slightly nodded at Leo. Must be some manly greeting or something as Leo slightly smiled. What happened to the good old fashioned hand shake? 

The End
