I’m so glad to have Jeremy around. I couldn’t have fixed up my arm if he wasn’t here. And he’s also a really nice guy to talk to. Why can’t I find a guy like that? None of them ever seem to like me.
I lay in my bed and rested my head on my pillow. Pain shot up my ear.
“What-?” I got up to look at the damage. My ear was in pretty bad shape. I didn’t realize my ear could even bleed that much. I quickly got alcohol swabs and gauze to stop the bleeding. Just as I was about to wipe my ear off, I hear a knock on the door. I went to answer it, but the person on the other side was very unexpecting.
“Harry? What are you doing here?”
“Harry? What are you doing here?” she asked.
“I just wanted to check on you. The hit you took looked pretty hard.” I tried to sound calm. Do you know how hard it is to do that when those gorgeous eyes are staring at you?
“Oh thanks. I was actually about to fix up my ear. Wanna help me?” she asked.
“I’d love to.” I said. She let me in. She lead me to the bathroom where all the swabs and gauze were set up.
“Do you mind cleaning it? I can’t really see from this angle.” She asked.
“Yeah sure.” I said grabbing a piece of gauze and an alcohol swab. She moved her long dark brown hair out of the way to reveal her ear. There wasn’t that much bleeding, but it was hard to focus on that when she was showing me that much skin. She had a tank top on, so at the angle I was standing I saw her neck, shoulder, and chest. They looked so smooth, so… kissable.
“Yeah.” I snapped out of my daze.
“Could you clean it?” she asked.
“Right.” I got started. I wiped the swab over her ear. She winced almost right away.
“Don’t worry about it.” She said. “I’ll be fine. Keep going.” I did so. I tried to work fast so she wouldn’t be in much pain. Whenever she winced, I twitched because I didn’t want to hurt her.
“Done.” I finally said after what seemed like hours.
“Thank god. I tried my hardest not to scream.” She said. She put the gauze against her ear. “It’s not deep so I won’t need stitches.” Stitches…
“Your arm… how is it?” She raised her right arm so I could see.
“It’s wrapped right now. I’ll show you tomorrow when it’s better.”
“Okay.” I said. She took me to her bed and we sat in silence for awhile. I could feel my eye lids get heavy.
“If you want to sleep, you’re welcome to stay here. It is 2 am.” She offered.
“Are you sure?” She nodded her head yes.
“You look really tired. The last thing we need is for you to pass out in the hallway.” She said. She propped up her pillows on the headboard and got into bed. I joined her. Before I could rest my head on the pillow, I looked at her.
“What?” she asked.
“If you can’t get comfortable, you can sleep on my shoulder.” She offered.
“Are you sure?”
“Yeah. I’m told that I make a very comfy pillow.”
“Erm… thanks.” I rested my head on her shoulder. It was a comfy shoulder, but I still couldn’t sleep.
“Sleep. I’m here to protect you.” She chuckled.
I closed my eyes and inhaled. Her vanilla scent filled my nose and soon I drifted off to sleep.
****** A few moments later ******
I woke up. Only 3 am. This wasn’t my room. I looked up. Rey was sleeping with her head on the headboard. I sighed. I slowly got up and stood on my feet. I walked to her side of the bed to lay her head in the pillows and lay down properly. She looked like and angel fell from heaven. She looked peaceful in her sleep, I didn’t want to disturb her. Before I left I had to do one thing.
I leaned in to kiss her cheek. However… she turned her head. My lips missed her cheek and got her lips instead. I was about to pull away, but I felt her lips start to kiss me back. I froze in that position. The moment was amazing. I’ve never felt this feeling in a kiss before. I didn’t want it to end.
The moment broke when she rolled over. My heart was still pounding. I still felt a tingle in my lips. I turned and walked to the door.
“Goodnight Reyna.” I whispered before I let myself out. There were two things I already knew. 1. I was in lots of trouble. 2. I was falling for a bodyguard…
