2. Chapter two

*Rachel's P.O.V.*

David sat down and I lied down, putting my legs over his lap. David grabbed the remote and started looking for a movie. Out of all the movies, he picks a horror movie! "David, you KNOW I hate horror movies!" He pulls me into his chest. "Don't worry. I'll protect you." Whenever a scary part came on, I would hide my face in his shoulder. During the whole movie he just kept watching me. When we were in the middle of the second movie I fell asleep.

 

*David's P.O.V.*

When the second movie ended, I looked down at Rach, only to find her asleep. I smiled, remembering when we would Skype and she would fall asleep. Knowing how grumpy she got when I would wake her up, I just carried her to bed. Before I went back downstairs, I tucked her in and kissed her head. Once downstairs, I made some popcorn and tested the new shooter game for Xbox. About half way through the campaign, I heard Rachel scream from upstairs. Immediately, I ran to our room to see what was wrong. I opened the door to see her hugging a pillow, rocking back and forth. She seemed so scared. When I got over to her, I noticed she was crying. Not saying anything, I took her in my arms and tried to comfort her. "Shh it's okay. It was a dream. Whatever it was it wasn't real." After she calmed down, we just sat there; me rubbing her back and her head on my shoulder. "Do you want to talk about it?" She shook her head. "Do you wanna try going back to sleep?" Rach didn't seem like she wanted to, but she nodded her head yes anyways. "Okay. Let me go turn the T.V. off. I'll be right back." She still looked scared, so I went as fast as I could. When I got into bed she cuddled into my chest, whispering she loved me. I smiled and soon we went into a peaceful sleep.

 

*Rachel's P.O.V.*

I woke up and noticed David wasn't in bed ."Guess he went to work," I thought. I got up to go take a shower. After my shower I finished getting ready. "Holy flip I'm hungry. I NEEDS FOOD!" I did not expect to hear a reply. "What do you want?" I swear I jumped 5 feet into the air. "David! What the hell?!" I walked out into the kitchen to see David looking all innocent. "What?! What did I do?" I glared at him. "You're supposed to be at work. You scared me!" I faked a pout at him. "Aww I'm sorry babe. I was gonna surprise you. I took the day off and we are all going to the zoo." Instantly, I smiled and hugged him. "Yay! When are we leaving?" "Right after breakfast. Hurry up!" We quickly ate and got ready. Once we were set, we left for the zoo.

 

*David's P.O.V.*

She looked so happy when I told her we were going to the zoo. Sometimes she acts like such a little kid, but it's still so cute. On the way to the zoo, 'Love Somebody' by Maroon5 came on. We both smiled, remembering old memories. I turned up the volume and started singing along. Luckily Rach wasn't driving, because she started laughing so hard. Once the song was over, I turned the volume back down. "Did you enjoy my singing?" She nodded. "Mhmm." It took us 2 hours to get to the zoo, so we played games along the way. At the zoo, we met up with everyone at the gates. Myron and Connor brought their twins, a boy and a girl. They looked so much like their mother. Poor Connor. Rach ran over to see them. "David come here! They're so cute!" I shook my head, smiling, as I walked over.
