“It’s okay, I just needed some advice cause I was completely in the dark. I didn’t know what to do.” He admitted.
“Well, I hate to say this but you have a choice to make.” I said as I put down my fork and took my cup of coffee.
“Whether I stay with Astrid and break Merida’s heart, or go with Merida and break Astrid’s heart? I got it thanks.” He said sarcastically before closing his eyes. Knowing him he was weighing out the factors of his options, but this is a difficult thing to think about. What I would usually do with him was help him decide, but I what I do would be absolutely useless. I stood up to go, but I needed to tell my friend one more thing so he doesn’t forget.
“Hiccup, the only thing that you should think about is your happiness.” He didn’t say anything, he didn’t even move. I took this as my cue to leave him alone with his thoughts.
When I slipped back into Jack’s room, my mind was still racing with images of the events Hiccup told me.
“You were gone for a while.” Jack groaned as he slowly began to wake up.
“I had some breakfast with Hiccup. Sorry.” I said as I sat down next to him on the bed. He wrapped his arms around my waist and nuzzled closer to me.
“Is that why I smell coffee?” he questioned.
“Do you want some sleepy head?” I giggled. I felt his nod in my hip, so we shifted positions so we could both sit up properly. He took the cup in my hand and practically gulped down the caffeine.
“Coffee’s good.” He groaned as he nuzzled his head in my neck and handed me back the mug.
“I know.” I agreed as I tipped back the rest of the mug.
“What do you have planned today?” he asked against my neck.
“Nothing really. I wasn’t even planning on going last night.”
“Well I’m glad you did.” He said as I felt him place a small kiss on my neck. I slightly shivered and goosebumps formed on my body.
“Sorry.” He shied away.
“It’s okay.” I took his hand in mine. “It was nice.”
“By the way we didn’t do anything last night… except for that little strip tease you performed.” He chuckled. I nearly choked on my own saliva.
“I gave you clothes to change into, and you decided to change right here in front of me.” He explained. “You can seriously move your hips Elsa.”
“Oh my god!” I blushed as I hid my face from embarrassment.
“It’s okay. I stopped you before you took off anything that would reveal anything.”
“But I’m not wearing my bra.” I blurted.
“You took it off under the shirt which by the way I still do not know how the heck you did. It was like magic where you played around with some straps and produced a bra right out of thin air.”
“That’s a trick every girl knows.” I tried to hide my embarrassment, but also started to search for my cloths.
“Right here.” Jack laughed as he plucked off my bra from his lamp and handed it to me.
“How on earth did it even get on there?”
“Take a little guess.” He smirked. I felt my face heat from embarrassment when I realized what I had done last night.
“I flung it at you didn’t I?” I guessed.
“And your pants and socks and almost your shirt but I stopped you there.”
“Did I thank you for doing that already?”
“No, but you don’t need to. I just did what made sense at the time.” He admitted as he finally started to stretch.
I was going to say something, but I was at a loss for words. Maybe it was because I told him about that night, or maybe he-
“Stop thinking so hard Elsa.” He broke my thoughts. “I can feel your mind from here.”
“Sorry.” I smiled as I leaned into him. He kissed the top of my head and wrapped his arms around me.
“Did you have anything planned for today?” he asked me.
“Do you want to go out?” he asked nonchalantly.
“Depends. Did you have a particular destination in mind?”
“Panagio’s, then maybe just walk around the city.” He suggested.
“That sounds nice.” I murmured. “But can we stop by my dorm first? I need to change and charge my phone.”
“You can borrow my charger.”
“I have an iPhone whilst you have an Android. Doesn’t work out.” I laughed as I got off him to get dressed.
“You could probably use Hiccup’s charger.”
“Yes, but you’re forgetting the second reason why I asked to go back to my dorm.” I pointed out as I pulled on my dirty jeans.
“Fine, fine. I’ll go get dressed.” He gave in as he rolled off the bed. Once he walked out of the room I quickly put my bra back on. I was about to put my top back on, but I just put Jack’s shirt back on; it was comfy… and it smelt like him. When he came back to the room he was fully dressed and already seemed fresh.
“Ready?” he asked me. I grabbed my keys, purse and phone before nodding. He retrieved his wallet from his dresser and his keys and led me out of his room.
“They have triple chocolate chip pancakes at Panagio’s now.” He suggested as we were deciding what to eat. We were on our way to my dorm, but he started talking about food because he said and I quote ‘He could feel his stomach eating at itself.’
“Sound’s good. But it’s the afternoon, I might be in the mood for a burger.”
“You do know you can get both right?”
“Yeah. Just replace your fries for the pancakes.” He said.
“They allow that?”
“…No… but you could always ask Molly. I’m sure she won’t hesitate considering the tip you gave her last time.”
“Is she there today?”
“She’s there every day. Her dad owns the place.” He said as we parked in front of my dorm. We stepped out of the car and made our way inside to the building.
“Local supporter. Did not know that.” I smiled as I unlocked my door. When I stepped in, I immediately felt something different about the dorm. I looked to Jack to see his eyes had gone wide. I followed their gaze to see what he was looking at… my parents were looking at me and Jack. My mother looked nervous and my dad; well I’ve never seen him so angry in my 21 years of living with him…
