4. Airplane Fear
The plane goes, turns, then stops. It waits for something that I try to figure out just as the plane moves forward in a fast motion. It's speeding toward the end of the runway and lifts off. I freak out on the inside, but love the thrill in the speed before the liftoff. I grab onto Niall's hand and squeeze it until he lets out a gasp. We're up in the air just as I let go of Niall's hand. I look at it as he pulls his hand to his chest and holds it to there. It looks red and blotchy.
"I'm sorry... I've only been on a plane one time before this and - " I tried to finish but he cuts me off with a kiss that sets of a billion fireworks. He pulls me close with the hand that I didn't try to suffocate and I am under his spell. He lets up and we pull apart from each other.
"Don't worry about a thing babe... I will always be here with you. I promise." He says with a cute smile that drives me nuts. All I can hear after that is the boys in the back of the first class seats yelling, "AWWWE! Look at those two love birds." They say.
"Be quiet," I mimic, trying to sound like them. "You guys should get some rest... we're only 20 minutes into the 2 1/3 hour trip to colorado." I say.
"Yea, so get to it boys!" Says Niall with a laugh. I giggle a little and rest my head on Niall's shoulder.
"I think you should get some sleep too babe, you don't seem okay." He says, "Like... you look hot, but... ughh... you know what I mean right?"
"Yes," I respond giving him the look.
"I'll wake you up when we're in Colorado. Okay?" He asks.
"Okay." I say.
I get my up out of my seat and get my bag out of the compartment ahead of us. I pull out a small blanket and put the suit case back in the compartment. I lay the soft blanket over us and I fall asleep thinking about something I wish would get out of my head. I am thinking of crashing... I have watched so many movies about crashing. Which has made it my biggest fear. I hold my breathe before I fall into a deep sleep.
