Why was Justin saying we wouldn't last all of the sudden? Literally 2 days ago, he loved me and was completely convinced we'd be able to last for a long time. This behavior only started this morning when he was heated about me going to the mall with Emma. It's something. Justin was now in my bedroom and I was sitting on the couch trying to read 'Looking For Alaska' but failing because I couldn't focus. I proceeded to walk towards the bedroom door and pushed it open. He was lying on the bed with his eyes closed but I saw his eyelids fluttering so I knew he was awake.
All he responded with was a moan.
"Look I love you, but not this you. I love the Justin I knew 2 days ago but not this one who gets pressed over stupid shit and sleeps all day. So give me an explanation or get out."
I wasn't about to let this relationship turn into this. If Justin was going to be the type of guy to just sleep and do drugs I wasn't up for it.
"I'm hungover." was his only response.
"I don't care...wait...when the hell did you get drunk?"
"Last night when you were sleeping." -He then opened his eyes and turned to me.
"Justin..I like you when you're charming and smiley. I do not like the alcoholic you. I really don't. I don't even feel like I'm with you right now and that isn't fair for me. I hate doing restricting but if you are going to drink in this relationship, I can't be with you. You don't act the same and I can't deal with your personality changes."
My words must have affected him because he immediately stood up and walked to me gently pecking my lips. I could taste the alcohol on his lips but it wasn't necessarily a bad taste.
"I'm gonna go shower and clean up. I don't want to ruin your mood baby."
He can even act like an asshole but that nickname killed me everytime. Justin disappeared into the bathroom and I heard the water start. I liked when Justin was my savior, my protector. I didn't like having to push him around. He didn't even seem stable by himself. I missed when he was independent and didn't drink for free time. I was still upset about the whole time.
Justin walked out of the bathroom with a towel wrapped around his waist. His body still had water dripping and his hair was pushed up off his face still dripping. Holy shit I could fuck him right now but I was mad at him so I couldn't. He winked at me which means he noticed my stare.
"What's mine is yours babe," -he said before dropping the towel.
"Oh my god Justin, you are something else." -I said while turning around.
At least his humorous teasing self was back. I heard keys go into the front door and immediately froze.
"Justin, hide! Go into the bathroom or something!"
His face expression changed and he grabbed the towel from the ground running to the bathroom and closing the door behind him. It had been forever since my aunt was home, I was starting to forget she even lived there. The door opened and she greeted me with her boyfriend. Of course.
"Hey Spencer! I've missed you!"
"Nah, you didn't" -I replied winking and motioning towards her boyfriend.
All she did was giggle and made a 'shhhh' sound at me.
"Okay well that was a long drive but I have to pee." -Janice said while heading towards the one Justin was in. Shit.
"Uhm....you can't go in there!" -I shouted making it obvious that something was wrong.
"I know there's a boy in there. I ain't dumb little girl" -She said while knocking on the door.
"Hey buddy, might wanna put on some pants because this girl has to pee!"
Oh my god, she was so embarrassing. The door opened and Justin was wearing salt&pepper sweatpants that got tighter near his ankles. He had no shirt on because there was none in the bathroom.
"Uhm..we haven't formally met. I am Justin." -He said while holding his hand out to shake hers.
After seeing his damp shirtless body she turned to me. She mouthed the words 'he's a keeper' to me before turning around.
"Yes, it is wonderful meeting you when you are half naked in my house, now move aside."
She walked past him and closed the door behind her. Justin just burst into laughter and walked over to me pulling me in to hug him. I kissed his cheek and he blushed.
"You guys are cute." -Said Janice's boyfriend that I didn't even know the name to.
It was really weird so me and Justin just made awkward faces at each other and then fake smiled at him. It really was an embarrassment to be related to these people.(Not the boyfriend, but close enough)
Justin and I walked back to my bedroom and he smiled.
"Nice family you got there."
"Yeah, shut up." -I replied while punching his arm and attempting to run away.
"Hey!" -He shouted while wrapping his arms around my waist from behind and picking me up to spin me around to face him.
"I'm sorry I've been acting like a goof. This whole university thing is stressing me out especially because I know we won't be going to the same one."
He finished by kissing my lips and we lingered for a bit.
"I know you said you don't like me sleeping in the day because it makes me look lazy but is it okay if you join me?"
I smiled and gladly joined him in my bed as we cuddled to some 8tracks playlists I had saved for these type of moments. It wasn't long before I was asleep in Justin's comforting arms.
