Chapter 36: We Turn Into Ninjas At Night
Crawling out of bed I shrugged on my tee shirt and gently closed the door after me so Kendall doesn't wake up. That party tired all the girls out and Katy nearly fell asleep in the elevator. Megan went straight to bed along with Kendall and an hour later Kendall was still up. I ended up cuddling with her until she fell asleep but I just can't seem to close my eyes.
No one's up. The sky's pitch black and when I switched on the lamp sitting on the kitchen island it only gave out light for the table top. I got a hold of my script and the green highlighter I was using earlier and flipped my script open to where I last had it. For the hour that the girls were asleep the boys and I were highlighting our lines in the script, that was until Brody fell asleep and then so did Jackson. I left them on the sofas but they must have woken up and moved because they're not there anymore.
The script itself is really cool. There's a whole new scene where some people are beating someone else, there's no characters and a plot hidden in the actual plot. The end is a cliffhanger - the scene we've already shot (a/n: end of chapter 5 What's Stopping You?) which hopefully means there's going to be another movie.
Halfway through the script the door to mine and Kendall's room (I love saying that) opened and Kendall lent against the door frame. Suddenly I'm extremely tired seeing her in one of my tee shirts and her leggings.
"Hey." I said softly, turning on the stool to face her.
"Hey." She replied. "You okay?" I nodded at her question but she didn't seem to buy it. She walked over and slid between my legs making my hands go onto her hips whilst her arms went round my neck causing shivers. "How come you're up?"
I shrugged and pulled her closer. "Couldn't sleep again." I mumbled against her shoulder. Her fingers ran through my hair and I hummed, burying my head into her collarbone. I moved my arms round her waist and tightened them, her hips coming in contact with my shirt.
"You sure you're okay?" She asked gently and I pulled back, raising my chin to take a look at her. She doesn't look tired, Kendall's like that. She may be tired but she always looks full of energy unless she's jet lagged. If she is then she'll have dark circles under her eyes, her eyes barely open and she pretty much drags herself round until someone insists she goes back to sleep.
"I'm fine baby." I mumbled leaning up and kissing her cheek. Grazing my lips across her cheek I felt her shiver and then she stopped when my lips hit hers. Her arms left my neck, her fingers sliding away from my hair and I went cold with the lose of contact as soon as she pulled away from the kiss completely.
"Come on." She took my hands, her thin, delicate fingers sliding between mine and she pulled me off the stool. Flicking the lamp off I let her lead the way back to our room. Once inside I kicked the door closed, spun her round and pulled her into another kiss. She let me run my hands round her back and sides, gripping just above her hips and lifting her up so her legs clamped round my waist.
I walked over to the bed and rested my knee against the white covers feeling it dip down as I lent forward and carefully lowered Kendall down onto them. I don't know how or when but I ended up with my legs either side of her waist, sitting up and pulling my tee shirt over my head. Throwing it behind me I kissed Kendall again, this kiss slow unlike the one before. My stomach feels like it's on fire and as I place my hand over her heart I can feel it beat furiously.
I smiled, having to pull away from her because I just can't control my lips at the moment. Moving my hands down up to her cheeks I kissed her forehead, Kendall's hands lightly running up and down my arms.
"I love you." I whispered meaning every word. "I love you so much."
Her cheeks became hot under my hands when she looked up at me.
"I love you too Zack." The fire in my stomach continued burning when she looked me in the eyes. No sign of doubt or hesitation in her eyes as she spoke. "So much."
I pulled the covers up to my eyes and wrapped an arm round Kendall's waist, laughing into her shoulder as she raised her phone above the both of us. She snapped a picture and then poked my cheek until I looked at the phone. She got another one and then lowered it until it was eye level with her and she was tapping away. My phone buzzed on the night stand beside me, the gold iPhone 6 making a weird sound against the wood.
I typed in my password and looked at Kendall when the Instagram picture came up. She had posted the last one on, captioning it: We Turn Into Ninjas at Night.
I laughed and commented something before locking my phone and plugging it to charge overnight. I turned back to Kendall, pulling her towards me as she plays around on her phone. With her back pressed against my chest, my cheek against hers and her legs between mine I watched over her shoulder as she grinned and turned her head to kiss my cheek.
"You make a pretty hot ninja too Zack." She smiled and I laughed, burying my forehead into the back of her neck.
"G'night babe." I laughed closing my eyes and falling asleep finally.
