15. "Honey I'm home"
"Mom" I called as I walked inside our apartment, "I'm home.." "Hi sweetie... Are you gonna stay the night or are you gonna stay at Sophie's" I heard her voice. "I'm sorry mom... But I'm staying at her place till her parents get back... They're out of town... And she has a cold" I went to my room. "It's okay sweetie.... Tell her to get well soon okay.." I looked up and saw my mom smile. "Oh yeah I should say hi to you for her.... And I will" I said, "I almost got a heart attack earlier today..." "Why?" my mom asked worried. Chuckling I sat down on my bed, "because, when I told my friends that she wasn't feeling that well they said that I probably got her pregnant... And that was before I knew she had a cold... And I didn't know if she was like gonna throw up or something... I panicked.. But she ain't pregnant... Thank god..." "Why would you be scared? You used protection right?" she raised an eyebrow. I cleared my throat, "kinda... The first time we didn't-" "The first time? You've done it again?" "I thought you kinda heard" I scratched my neck awkwardly. "You did it here?!" she exclaimed, "Justin!... Where?" "Where do you think? In my bed..." "This is a weird conversation which I should not be having with you..." I exclaimed as I started packing my stuff. "You're right I'm sorry... I just-" "In my defense she was wearing a very tight tank top.." "Okay, but just don't get her pregnant... I don't want you to go through such a tough time as I did..." she smiled a sad smile. I smiled and pulled her into a hug, "I won't, don't worry.. I love you mom.." "Love you too sweetheart" she mumbled into my chest. I pulled away, pecked her cheek and grabbed my bag, "I'll see you soon.. I won't be gone forever... I just need to be there for her... And take care of her... Maybe when she's feeling well again we can sleep here or something..." "Take care sweetie.. Don't do anything stupid.. It's getting late... You'd better get going" she smiled. "See you" I bended down pecking her cheek. Then just as I was about to leave I remembered I forgot protection. Don't judge me I'm gonna stay there for two weeks or something. And if she gets well again. I put my bag down and rushed to my room. I got them and went back to my bag. I saw my mom looking at me. "What? I forgot something... I forgot my toothbrush.." "Yeah right.. Now go.. Your girlfriend is sick... And you're up for school tomorrow.. Go.." she giggled. "Okay bye..." Awkward. ---- She had locked the door while I was gone, so I couldn't get in. So I knocked on the door. Some time after the door opened and I saw my princess stand there, looking adorable. "I'm back" I smiled and pecked her cheek. I didn't wanna kiss her on the lips when she was sick. "Great now get inside so we can go to bed" she yawned. I got inside and she locked the door. ---- "Do you want me to brush your teeth baby girl?" I teased. "Yeah actually that would be nice" smiling she sat down on the bed. "Seriously?" I looked at her, "okay then stay there... I'll just get your toothbrush.." Chuckling I got her toothbrush. I sat down beside her and placed my hand under her chin, "ready?" Giggling she nodded, "go ahead.. You're gonna use it anyway.. When you get children someday.." "Yeah... But that's far away so I've got plenty of time for that" I smiled, "now open your mouth.." I began bushing her teeth. It wasn't as bad as I thought but it was kinda weird though. ---- "You're okay?" I asked wrapping my arms around her waist from behind. "I'm good.. Thank you for taking care of me today" I could feel her smile. "You're welcome princess... I enjoyed it.." I kissed her hair, "goodnight I love you..." "I love you too.." ---- "Shit I'm gonna be late... Shit shit shit" I said under my breath. I quickly wrote a note and put it on the kitchen counter. I grabbed an apple and my skateboard and I rushed out of the door. I went as fast as I could on my skateboard. ---- "Where have you been all day?" Bruce exclaimed. "Trying not to get detention.." sighing I sat down. They all chuckled, "why that?" "Because I was a little late.. And then the teacher kinda freaked out... He was so pissed.." "But bro you're never late" Toby exclaimed dragging on his cigarette. "I know... Give me one of those" I commanded. Toby gave me a cigarette and fire. "So Bruce... Still got Alexandra?" I asked. He nodded smiling, "yeah I do.. Honestly she's amazing.. I've never met a girl like her before.." I patted his back. "Well Toby any girls?" He shook his head, "I still can't find any... You know, it's not easy.." I looked at him, "you know um.. I never thought I would fall in love with a girl like Sophie... So what I say is that you just try... Just choose a girl you wouldn't choose as the first.." "I guess I don't have any other choice you know.." he sighed. "Well what about you Liam... Any girls?" "Not really... No wait there is this girl... But she's from an other school.. We're kinda like friends with benefits you know... But she's kinda sweet... She's okay.." I just smiled as an answer. "Well how's Sophie doing? Any better?" "I don't think so man... She can't like breath through her nose so she's like breathing heavily through her mouth... She's coughing and stuff in the middle of the night... It's really frustrating.." He chuckled, "dude that's the relationship-life.. You gotta be there for her.." I groaned, "I know... The worst part is that she's sick and she's wearing this god damn tight tank top at night.. And some freaking lace hipsters..." "Oh my god" their eyes wide open, "on that body.. How come you're still alive?" "I don't know.. I keep offering her one of my t-shirts you know" I said. "Damn.. You know you've got a smoking hot girlfriend right bro..." Toby winked. "I know... And I swear to god if you touch her you're dead" I said sternly. "Trust me I know" he chuckled. ----- "Honey I'm home" I chuckled. I heard Sophie's adorable laugh coming from the kitchen. "You're up... That's great.. When did you wake up?" I went in there putting my bag on the counter. "9 I think" she smiled. I walked over to her and pecked her cheek, "it's weird being in school without you.." Smiling she stroked my cheek, "it's weird being home alone also..." "You still sound like you can't breath through your nose though" I chuckled. "I can't..." "And at night... You're breathing so heavily" I went to get something to drink from the fridge. "That bottle is mine" Sophie pointed at a water bottle in the fridge. "Okay beautiful... I'll just take this one then" I grabbed the one next to it and drank almost everything, then I closed the fridge and sat down. "So how was school?" she smiled as she sat down beside me. "Okay... I was late and I tried not to get detention all morning.." She giggled, "how come you were late?" "You didn't wake me up" I shrugged, "but I'll figure something out.. Don't worry.." "So what are you up to?" She shrugged, "nothing I guess.." It ended up with us sleeping on the couch all day long.
