40. Days Pass

  I lost each day too quickly, and Sunday night smacked me in the face before I knew it. Zayn stared into each other's eyes, without making a sound. All I could hear was his steady breathing. I touched his bare chest and moved my fingers in a circular motion over his heart. He took my hand and kissed it gently, making me smile. 

  I'd spent almost every second with him throughout the week, except for when I was at work, talking to Heather about him 24/7. Lily stayed with them during the day until I got home. And i got fired from Macy's today because I'm 'not a good employee.' It didn't affect me much, although I really needed the money. So I stormed out with pride and went home to be with Zayn.    I rotated my cold bare body, and he held me closely against his warm skin. He kissed the back of my neck. My phoning began to ring, causing me to jolt. Zayn let out a husky chuckle as I reached for it, laughing at my fear. I rolled my eyes at his cruelty and he went back to kissing my neck. "Hi, Heather" I greeted her kindly.   "Good evening, sweetheart. I'm so sorry to bother you. I was just wondering if we were still on for tomorrow, since I forgot to remind you about it on Friday."   "How could I forget?" I said, removing the covers and standing up to get my clothes. Zayn gripped my waist and brought me back to him, making my words stumble. "I just h-haave one question." I continued, hitting him in the abdomen and standing back up.  "Anything, doll."  "My little sister doesn't exactly have anywhere to go, so I was wondering if she could join us. I'm sure she won't be much of a bother."  "I'd love to meet her, sweetie. I'll see you both tomorrow." I could tell that she was smiling on the other line.  "Okay, goodbye." I said politely, before hanging up the phone. I felt Zayn's eyes on me, so I turned around to face him. I started getting dressed and he groaned, knowing that this was the end of our play time.  "I love you." he whispered, loud enough for me to hear. He waited for me to respond, but there was an awkward silence. "Still don't know?" He asked, understanding my confusion. I sighed loudly and plopped into his arms.  "I'm sorry."  "It's okay. I just thought I'd give it a shot." I ran my fingers across his lips, and then kissed them. He put his fingers up my shirt, sending warmth across my torso.  "I'm tired." I mumbled into his mouth. "And Lily's gonna barge in any min-" Just then there was banging on the door. I giggled and raised my eye brows at him as he removed his hand. "Go put clothes on. Pants at least." I told him, lightly squeezing his thigh. He put his clothes on and little Lily popped in, tackling us on the huge bed. We tickled her, causing a never ending train of laughter from the three of us. When were able to calm down, we laid on our backs and stared at the ceiling.  And after several moments of peaceful silence, Lily asked innocently, "Are we... like a family?" Carefully separating the word family in syllables. My eyes fell on Zayn, wondering if he'd answer instead of leaving me to do it. He opened his mouth slowly.   "If that's what you want, love." She sighed with a smile on her face as the silence began again. I grinned at Zayn, stretching my arm out to stroke his hair. Lily placed her hand in mine and I held it tightly, and watched closely as she held his hand in her free one . I swallowed the frog in my throat and sniffled back my confusingly happy  tears.
