38. Chapter 37
“I think I’m addicted to the show… Damn it Rey!” I teased as we left Niall’s room.
“Don’t worry! I’ll watch it with you.” She smiled. We stopped at her door and I was about to go to mine when she stopped me.
“You wanna stay for a bit? Those Shirley Temples have me wired right now.” She offered.
“Yeah sure. Could we watch a few more episodes?” I asked as she opened her door.
“Yeah. We could probably ill the whole season tonight.” She said.
“Really? How many episodes are left?”
“You already watched four episodes. You only hove two more to go.” He explained as she hooked her laptop up.
“Oh… let’s kill it then!” I exclaimed as I jumped onto her bed. She laughed and put the episode on. Then she took her spot next to me… and then she lay her head on my shoulder. My heart began to race and I held my breath.
“Jer are you okay?” she asked.
“You’re acting a little funny.” She said looking at me.
“Oh… uh- I’m just a bit scared. I can’t handle horror well.” I lied. She laughed and took my arm and wrapped it around my shoulders.
“I’ll protect you. Don’t worry.” She joked and lay her head on my chest again. We continued
watching in silence. A few minutes later, she started asking questions.
"You okay?" Rey asked.
"Yeah... Just a bit sick." I lied.
"Love sick?" She joked. I tensed up and she smiled. She paused the episode.
"Okay tell me who she is." She said sitting up.
"Wha- No! I'm not telling you!" I protested.
"C'mon. No names, just give me details. I could help you win her heart." She offered. Her brown eyes looked at me for an answer. What if she rejects me? How so I say "she's you"?
“She works with us. She loves comic books, video games and all that stuff. She's been hurt before, but I know that I will never hurt her if she becomes mine." I explained not looking in her eyes. She thought for a while.
"You should hang out with her more." She suggested. "Lend her some comic books, play some video games and watch movies with her. And tell her that you have feelings for her."
“When should I tell her?”
“When you want to.”
“Thanks your help will help me.” I thanked her.
“No problem.” She laughed awkwardly. We finished the last episode.
“I should go. It’s getting late.” I said getting up. She got up too.
“Yeah… it’s 1 in the morning.” She laughed.
“Okay. I’ll see you in a few hours then?” I said touching the knob. She walked up to me and wrapped her arms around me neck. I wrapped my arms around her. It felt so right, so perfect to be holding each other.
“Yeah. Could you wake me up? I’m used to waking up a little later than you.” She asked in my ear.
“Thanks.” She thanked me. “Good night Jer.” She said… then she did something I didn’t expect. She kissed my cheek, close to the corner of my mouth, and broke the hug. I quickly opened the door and walked out. I sped walked to my room and leaned on the door. I slid down and put my head in my hands. One thought ran through my mind: she knows…
I got up as soon as I heard the secret knock on my door. I turned to knob to see those beautiful blue eyes. He wrapped his arms around me and pressed his lips mine. I kissed him back and shut the door to lead him into the room.
“What took you so long Nialler?” I asked as I broke the kiss.
“Sorry. Harry wanted to talk about something.” He said as he planted kisses all over my face. I brought his lips to mine again and lead him to the bed. Let me explain… Niall and I have been secretly getting together for three weeks. I guess you could say it was love at first sight between us. We get along really well/. Don’t worry, I promised to wait until marriage and he agreed. we just meet up to talk and fool around at times. The only person who knows about this is Rey… because she caught us making out one time.
I brought him closer to me and brought my hands to his hair. He moaned in my mouth a little, I knew it was his weakness. Our lips molded together, and he tried to slip his tongue in my mouth, I rejected.
“You’re such a tease.” He joked.
“Sorry.” I bit my lip. He kissed my forehead and we lay on the bed to have our ‘real talk’.
“So are you going to tell me what Harry wanted?” I asked.
“Do you want to know? And you have to promise not to tell anyone.” He said.
“Of course. Just tell me.”
“Harry has a thing for Rey. And I think it’s getting serious.” He said.
“Oh my god! Imagine if they did end up together.”
“They look good, but-“ he started, but was interrupted by my phone. I quickly answered it before it woke up the whole hotel.
“Par? It’s Rey. I need help.” She said really fast. She was panicking.
“What? What’s up?”
“I think Jeremy likes me…”
