I woke up to my alarm going off from across my room. I tried to move but Dani had his arms wrapped around me, and he was still asleep. My alarm continued to go off, on monday mornings my alarm was Bullet from Hollywood Undead. I gently poked Dani to try and wake him up. He moaned and opened his eyes.
"I need to turn my alarm off," I whispered to him as he let go of me. I crawled out of bed and turned my alarm off.
"So if I survive I'll see you tomorrow. My legs are dangling off the edge. The bottom of the bottle is my only friend," I smiled as I realized Dani was singing the song. "That's an accurate song for morning," he said as he sat up and pushed his messy dark blonde hair out of his face but his feathery hair only fell back across his eyes.
"I'm going to go get a shower," I said as I picked out some clothes to wear. "I'll be back soon," I smiled as I went to reach for the door but Dani jumped up and turned me around and pushed me against the wall. I smiled up at him and he bit his lip. Damn he was sexy.
"Hurry back," he whispered as he leaned down and kissed me softly.
I took a quick shower. I didn't want to be away from Dani for too long. He made me happy. And I hadn't felt this happy in such a long time. I quickly dried off and got dressed. I was wearing some dark blue skinny jeans and a low cut black t-shirt. I walked back into my room and saw that Dani was laying on the bed. He looked like he was asleep. I walked over to the closet (which is by the bed) and dropped my dirty towel on the ground. I started to walk out and Dani grabbed my wrist.
"I missed you," he smiled up at me. I leaned down and leaned against the bed.
"I was only gone 10 minutes," I smirked as I traced my finger around some scars he had on his shoulder and arm.
"That was the longest 10 minutes of my life," he said. I kissed his forehead and stood up.
"Well your going to have to wait another 10 minutes for me to do my hair and make up," I said as I walked out. I quickly blowdried my hair and ran a flat iron through it. Then I put on some light makeup and even used mascara, which I never used. Then I walked back into my room. Dani sat there looking at his phone and as I walked in he motioned for me to sit next to him.
"You look beautiful," he said as he kissed me. I blushed.
"Can I ask you something?" I asked as I held his hand. Dani nodded. "I know its none of my business but why do you have a bunch of scars on your arms?" I asked.
"Well," Dani began. "I am a pretty happy person, but a few years ago I was going through a hard time. My mom had divorced and remarried a real dick and I had just moved. I hated life and I was depressed. So I helped myself feel. Even if it was pain, when I cut it helped me feel like I was still human. And every time I would break up with a girl I would cut. I have 7 scars on my shoulder for those girls," he said as he looked down and ran his finger on each individual scar on his shoulder. I grabbed his hand to try and make him feel better. "But that was a long time ago. I don't do that anymore unless I'm really in a bad place," he said as he kissed my cheek.
"Well I'm glad," I said.
"I hope you don't mind, I've dated some girls in the past that broke up with me because of the scars," he said.
"They are a part of you, I think their interesting," I said. "But just don't do it anymore, I'm here to talk to if you get in that dark spot," I reassured him. Dani smiled and kissed me on the lips.
"I guess I better get dressed now," he said as he stood up and grabbed his shirt, pants, and his sweatshirt. "Here, why don't you keep this for awhile," Dani said as he tossed me his shirt. I grabbed it and looked at it. It was black with a cool grey design on it, there was a large hole in the bottom of it but I didn't care.
"But it's yours," I said as I tried to hand it back.
"No you can keep it, I remember last night you said you liked wearing guys shirts. And plus if you keep it, then you'll have to return it sometime. It'll just give us another reason to hang out," he said as he pulled his sweatshirt over his head and then kissed me.
I kissed back and let him push me down on the bed. I wrapped my legs around his torso as he crawled on top of me. After a few minutes I turned my head to the side to get him to stop.
"Whats wrong?" he asked as he placed his arms on either side of me.
"I would love to stay here all day with you just like this, but I need to get to class and you have work," I said as I kissed him again. He jumped up and tried fixing his messy hair. I sat up and ran my hands through his hair and smiled. "I love your hair messy," I teased as I leaned up to kiss him.
"Maybe you could help me fix it sometime," Dani whispered as he winked. I slapped his chest and laughed.
Dani and I walked out of my apartment and out to the car. He carried my bag for me and I held his hand. I couldn't tell if I was smiling or not, but all I knew was I was so happy. We drove and Dani talked about his family and placed he had lived. He had just moved back to Utah after moving in with his, now his ex, girlfriend who was in Alabama. Dani gave me directions to where his work was and I pulled up to the abandoned looking building.
"Are you sure you have to go?" I asked as I put the car in park. "I'm only in class for 2 hours, you could come with me," I said as I held Dani's hand. He smiled.
"I would love to, but Aaron would be mad if I skipped work," he said. "But why don't you come back at noon and I'll be pretty much done with work by then. And you can meet my best friend," he said.
"Ok," I said. "I'll see you soon then."
"It won't be soon enough," Dani said as he kissed me and then got out of the car.
I drove back sitting in silence. Or at least it seemed like that. I had the radio on but I was just so happy I didn't hear it. My whole body felt warm and happy. I couldn't stop smiling. I parked at the university and walked into the large building. I still have 10 minutes before class and so I found a seat in the hall. I pulled out my phone to listen to music and saw I had a text from Dani.
D: I miss you already :( wanna come back early?
I could feel my smiled get bigger.
E: My class gets out at 11:15 so I'll come over right after class :)
D: That's too far but ok. I'll see you then. Have a good day at class
I smiled and sent him a smiley face back and then stood up to go to class. I sat in the back of the class so I could text. I didn't pay attention to anything the teacher said.
D: hey do you have a snapchat?
E: No, I don't think I would ever use it
D: Well you should get one and add me ;)
E: Oh and why should I get one? Convince me :)
D: My snaps are sexy and funny ;)
E: I'll download it right now :D
I clicked send and immediately went to the app store to download snap chat. Then I found Dani under my contacts.
E: I now have snap chat, I hope its worth it ;)
I laughed as I sent that message and then I got a notification from snapchat. I opened the app and saw Dani had sent me something. I clicked on it and saw a picture of Dani shirtless. I smiled even more.
Class's couldn't get over fast enough. I swear the clock was broken cause the day was going by so slow. Finally my last class was over and I jogged out to my car. I stopped by my apartment to drop my bag off. I saw Dani's shirt on my bed and I picked it up and put it on over my shirt. It smelled like him. Then I ran out the door and hopped in my car.
E: Just leaving my apartment, I'll see you soon :)
D: Great, Aaron and I went somewhere to pick up a tv, just stay in the car and we'll meet you at work.
E: Sounds good :)
I drove slowly. I didn't want him to think I missed him that much. But truthfully I missed him like crazy even though we had been away from each other about 5 hours. I pulled up in front of his work and parked and then just sat in the parking lot. There weren't any other cars there yet. I got out and pulled out my ehookah from my pocket and took a long hit. Then a large truck sped up and went right up to the building and parked on the curb. A tall boy with long black hair and a beard got out of the drivers seat.
"Dani hurry up and help me with this box," the boy said.
I saw Dani appear from the other side of the truck and he looked over at me. He smiled and waved and then helped the other boy pick up a large box from the bed of the truck. They walked into the building and then the other boy came walking back out and got into the truck and turned it on. I could hear the loud music playing, it almost seemed to shake the ground. The Dani came walking out of the building and walked over to me.
"I'm so glad your here," he said as he grabbed my arm. "Let go to my place for lunch," he said as he led me over to the truck and opened the back door for me. I crawled in and sat down. "Aaron this is Emily," Dani said to the boy. Aaron turned around and nodded at me and then sped away from the curb.
Aaron was a very fast driver. And within 5 minutes we were at Dani's house where he lived with Aaron's family and their other friend Aidan. Dani helped me out of the truck and held my hand as we walked inside to the kitchen. There were large doors that led out to a balcony and it overlooked the valley. The family room was small but a decent size. Two couches sat in front of a large tv.
"Come downstairs," Dani told me as I walked over to the balcony. I turned and followed him down a set of stairs. At the bottom was a large room with a queen sized bed in the middle and a twin mattress on the ground by a door. Connected to that was a smaller room with a mattress and desk.
"This is where I live," Dani said as he walked into the smaller room and sat down on the bed. It was then I noticed a large flat screen tv on the wall. Dani turned to me and smiled. "I'm happy your here," he said as he bit his lip and moved closer to me. Damn his lip bite was so damn sexy. I placed my hand on his cheek as he started to kiss me. He moved even closer and I moved closer so I was on his lap. I moved my fingers around in his hair as the kiss grew more passionate. I bit down a bit on his lip and he made a growling noise.
"I like that," Dani whispered. I smiled and continued to kiss him.
"Oh god!" we stopped when Aaron walked in. "Why is it always my bed?" Aaron asked as he set a package down on the table and pulled out a pocket knife.
"Hey, last time I did it in Aidan's bed," Dani said as he wrapped his arms around my waist.
"So did I," Aaron laughed.
"And Aidan was underneath while you and her were going at it," Dani laughed. I was so confused. "Hey, lets go up and get lunch," Dani whispered as he nibbled at my ear. I smiled and slowly stood up and grabbed his hand.
Dani let me upstairs and into the kitchen. I leaned against the counter as he made us sandwhich's. As he was making them a large bloodhound came running down the stairs and ran right up to Dani.
"No Red, back!" Dani ordered the dog. The dog slowly backed a few feet away and then sat down on the ground. "Good dog," Dani said. I moved over to the dog and got down to pet him.
"You like dogs?" Dani asked.
"I love them," I said as I gave Red a hug.
"So do I, that's why my spirit animal is a wolf," Dani said as he handed me a plastic plate with a sandwich on it. I took the plate and then followed him down stairs and into Aaron's room. Aaron sat at the desk with a blowtorch and wires. "Dude no way! Is that a dreadknot?" Dani asked as I sat down on the bed.
"Yea, it just came today. It weighs 3 pounds and produced a shit ton of smoke," Aaron explained. I didn't know what a dreadknot was but I figured out its a huge ass ehooka mod. "I'm just building the coils and stuff," Aaron explained as he turned the blowtorch on and used the flame to heat up some wire.
Dani sat down next to me and turned on the tv. We ate in pretty much complete silence besides the sound of the blowtorch and Aaron occasionally swearing because he touched the hot wire. After a few minutes of watching Aaron building the coils and putting them in, he turned around a took about a 3 second hit from the dreadknot. He breathed out and the entire room filled with smoke.
"That is pretty bad-ass," I said as the smoke thinned a bit.
"Man I've been waiting all week for this thing," Aaron said. "Aidan wanted a picture of it once I got it. Dani find a coin or something so we can set it next to it so Aidan can see the size comparison," Aaron told Dani.
"Does nuts work?" Dani asked as he laughed.
"You know he'll kill you when he gets home if you do it," Aaron warned. I was confused.
"I don't care. He hits like your sister," Dani said as he stood up and started to take off his pants and then removed his boxer.
"Woah wait what are you doing?" I asked before he could take his boxers all the way off.
"Taking a picture of my nuts next to the dreadknot," Dani laughed.
"Oh ok," I said feeling slightly uncomfortable. Dani took the picture and then got dressed again and sat down on the bed with me. He kissed my cheek and laid down on the bed. I laid down next to him and placed my hand on his chest. He played with my hair while I traced random shapes on his chest.
"Ok lovebirds, we have to get back to work," Aaron said as he threw a pillow at Dani.
"How long will that take?" I asked Dani as we stood up and went up stairs.
"I only have to move some trash and some desks then I'll be done. Stay and watch and we can do something after," he said as he opened up the truck for me.
We drove back to their work and Aaron parked once again on the curb. We walked inside and I was amazed at what was inside. The ground was almost completely covered in in-door grass. A row of paintball guns lay on a table. Dani walked over to the table and took out his VTR and set it on the table and then picked up a paintball gun.
"Watch this," Dani whispered as he aimed at Aaron who was way on the other side of the large room, and then shot. About a second later Aaron was down on the ground.
"Aw god damn it!" he yelled as he clutched the back of his head. I started laughing as Dani quickly put the gun down and started moving a pile of trash. "Dani I'm gonna get you!" Aaron yelled as he ran over and picked up a gun and then shot Dani right in the arm and back a few times.
Dani just stood there, muscles flexed and then turned around once Aaron was out of paint balls. His eyes watered a bit but he immediately went back to moving trash.
I sat and watched as Dani worked. Picking up large pieces of wood and other trash and putting it on a dolly. Aaron sat next to me watching too. I took a hit from my ehookah and then tried doing smoke circles.
"What the hell happened to you," Aaron said. "When I first met you, you were this quiet molly mormon girl. And now your hanging out with us, I'm sure your parents would call me and Dani 'thugs' and for gods sake, you smoke," Aaron said. For a moment I was confused and then realized that I knew Aaron. I had gone to school with him since 7th grade.
"I met General," I laughed. "And he opened my eyes to a whole new world," I said.
"Oh so my influence has managed to reach you," Aaron said as he took a hit from the dreadknot. "I mean who do you think got him to try a hookah or even green," he laughed and took another hit.
About an hour later Dani had finished moving all the trash and Aaron helped him move two desks to the front office. Then I drove Dani and I back to Dani's house. I parked across the street and we walked inside and down the stairs. At the bottom sat a tall boy with short brown hair. He was playing video games. As Dani and I walked down he paused the game.
"Hey Emily!" he shouted as he jumped up from the bed. "I haven't seen you since 9th grade!" he said. I guess I knew him too. I smiled and he went back to playing Call of Duty.
"That was Aidan," Dani told me as we walked into Aaron's room and sat on the ground right in front of the tv.
"Hey lets play video games," Aaron said as he walked downstairs and sat on the bed. He turned on the xbox and Dani grabbed another controller. "Aidan get your ass in here and play with us!" Aaron yelled into the next room. A minute later Aidan came walking into the room with his boxers slightly pulled down so his balls were showing.
"Aw what the fuck!" I yelled as I grabbed a pillow off the bed and threw it at Aidan. "I don't want to see that,"
"Aw you know that's not true," Aidan said as he walked closer to me. I crawled over Dani so Aidan couldn't get any closer. Dani laughed as Aidan moved even closer.
"Just sit down or I'll hit you with my dreadknot," Aaron said as he took a hit from the dreadknot.
"Damn that would hurt," Dani and Aidan said.
Eventually after the boys finished laughing about how much it would hurt to be hit with the dreadknot, they all sat down and started playing Call of Duty Zombies. I sat next to Dani who concentrated on the game and would every once in awhile kiss my forehead. After about an hour of playing I started to fall asleep. I laid my head down on Dani's lap and drifted off to sleep. I woke up when I Dani jumped up and started yelling at the game. I opened my eyes and realized that there was a blanket on me.
"What happened?" I asked as I sat up.
"He doesn't like loosing," Aidan said as he threw a pillow at Dani.
"What time is it?" I asked as I looked around the room for a clock.
"Almost 11," Dani said as he sat down next to me and kissed me.
"I better go soon," I said, Dani looked down at the ground.
"Are you sure you have to go?" he asked as Aaron and Aidan walked out of the room. "I mean you can stay the night here."
"I would love to but I have to wake up early for classes," I said as I kissed him. "But you can always come stay with me." I said as I ran my thumb around his face.
"I would love to but I have to wake up early from work," Dani said looking sad. "And I have to work late the next few days," he said.
"Well then we better make this moment count since it sounds like we wont be seeing each other for awhile," I teased him. Dani smirked and stood up and closed the door. Dani then walked back over and me and picked me up and dropped me on the bed.
"I like the way you think," he whispered against my neck.
I smiled and ran my hands through his hair as he started to kiss my neck and then moved to biting my ear then my lips. I could feel his hands move to my waist and slip underneath his shirt which I was still wearing. I did the same with my hands and slowly moved them underneath his shirt. I could feel his strong back muscles.
"It's always my bed. Why not make out on your own bed," Aaron asked as he walked in.
"Sorry but your bed was closer," Dani said as he continued to kiss me.
"Well I'm kicking you out. I'm about to pass out from pain pills so I need my bed," Aaron said as he sat down on the bed.
"And that will be my cue to leave," I said as I sat up and pulled my shirt back down. "Goodnight," I told Aaron who only nodded. Dani took my hand and we walked outside to my car.
"Thanks for hanging out with us today," he said as he traced my hand with his fingers. "I had fun."
"Me too," I said. "Until the video games but I got a nice little nap during that," I laughed making Dani smile.
"Text me when you get back ok?" Dani asked as he kissed the crown of my head. I nodded as he started to kiss my lips. "Have a safe drive back," he said.
"Ok, thanks for a great day," I said as I got in my car and started to drive away.
