I didn’t know what to believe. ‘I’ll be there when you wake up…’. Is he really the man in my dreams? I rubbed my eyes to make sure I wasn’t still dreaming.
“Uh.. hey.” He said.
“I should be saying that to you. What are you doing?” I asked.
“Uh… wake up call.” He tried.
“It’s three in the morning.”
“Yeah. I get up this early because of Paul.” He lied.
“Liar. Paul gave me that job too ad none of the times I had required me to wake up this early.” I said. “What do you really want?” he didn’t answer me. Instead he stepped closer to me and shut the door.
“I think you know why I came…” he started. My cheeks started to burn and a breath escaped my lips.
“Oh, yeah…” I whispered. He inhaled… Just say it already! He took my hands and sat me down on the bed.
“Rey. I’ve had feelings for you for some time now. They’ve been getting stronger the more I’m with you.” He started. I felt my heart race and my hands turn cold.
“Would you like to… go out sometime?” he asked scratching the back of his neck. I’ve already thought about what I want to do, but now… I was sure of it. Jeremy was always a good guy. He’s sweet and kind, especially to me…
“Sure.” I smiled as I wrapped my arms around him and kissed his cheek. He held me tight and we stayed in that position for a good while. It felt really nice having strong arms wrapped around me. I haven’t felt this in so long. I closed my eyes and took it all in. the warmth of his body, the way he hand started rubbing circles on my back… then the moment was ruined when his watch beeped.
“No, not now.” He whined.
“It’s time to wake up and meet Paul.” He said breaking the embrace.
“You get up and 3:30?” I teased. He looked at me confused.
“What? No! it’s 5AM right now.” He said. I checked the clock on my nightstand.
“I don’t know. Get dressed and I’ll meet you in the lobby.” He said as he got up. I walked him to the door. Before he left, I grabbed his hand.
“Jer…” I started, I didn’t have any words. Instead he looked me in the eyes and leaned in. I went on my tip toes and pressed my lips to his for a quick peck… that didn’t happen because he deepened the kiss. A familiar tingle came to my lips… then out of nowhere he turned and walked to his room leaving me stunned. I’ve felt that feeling before. I don’t know where. The same tingle in my lips was so familiar… maybe I felt it when I was half asleep or something. There was one thing that I knew for sure… I was developing feelings…
I can’t sleep. It’s five in the morning and I can’t sleep. I don’t know what was happening. I stayed in Niall’s room for a while to talk about some stuff. My feelings for her were defiantly strong. I can’t get her out of my head. She’s smart, strong and funny, not to mention gorgeous. My mind was occupied with too many thoughts to sleep. Maybe I should just wonder in the hallways to make me tired. I got off my bed and walked to the door. I touched the door knob to hear voices on the other side. I peeked through the hole in the door. I started to feel my heart tear from what I saw. Rey holding hands with… Jeremy. He leaned in and I wanted to scream. I felt a tear come to my eye when their lips touched. I ducked down because I didn’t want to see anymore. I covered my mouth to muffle my scream. How long? I stood back up to go back to bed, only catching a glimpse of Rey through the door. She had a smile on her face… but her eyes were a different emotion. I still have a chance…
