Just curious.. I"m not going to of course, but how would you react if I got rid of Beside You? Like forever? Comment how you would react :D x
Monday afternoon. (Sorry for such a skip x)
"Thanks guys, we can take it from here." Michael said as everyone finished up eating dinner that the lads served up. We hosted a bbq because apparently Michael had order one without me knowing but I guess it was worth it, "See ya later, mate." He said, hugging Calum.
"Christmas day bro, we'll see you all then, dude." He replied as he moved onto hugging me, "I'll see you all Christmas day, babes. Congratulations a baby girl." I smiled and kissed him on the cheek.
"See ya, Cal. And did you just call me babes..?" I giggled as his face went as red as a tomato and he chuckled.
"Maybe..." He laughed and I carried on hugging and kissing and whatnot everyone until they were gone. I know it sounds like I wanted them to leave, I promise I didn't but Michael and I were just so tired because we got barely any sleep from the night before.
"I love you, babe." I said as I wrapped my arms around Michael, my head resting on his chest, the sound of his heart beat soothing me and my eyelids becoming heavy.
"I love you too, baby." He replied, yawning slightly which also caused me to yawn, "I think it's bedtime for us, Darling." He said and I nodded, kissing his chest through his shirt gently before we headed up to our unfinished room and flopped down on our bed.
It may only be 7 pm but, man, was it a busy and exhuasting day for us, "Goodnight, honey." I said as we snuggled up under the covers together, not even bothering to take off our clothes seeing as we need to change the sheets tomorrow and everything. Uhh. We need to do like everything tomorrow. I can see another busy day ahead of us.
"Good night, sweetheart. Sleep well." He kissed the top of my forehead and he pulled me close. His head resting on top of mine as I nestled my head into the crook of his neck as I slowly but surely fell asleep in his arms.
I fell in love with Michael Gordon Clifford slowly and then all at once.
(Sorry for the TFIOS reference but it's so true, hehe xx Carry on x)
My eyes fluttered open, the light shining through the little crack in the curtain and onto my face. I rolled over but felt no Michael. I panicked a little as I felt around the bedsheets but calming down once I saw what was at the end of the bed.
It was bouquet of red roses, two love heart chocolates and a little love heart shaped note. This boy is so cute. Anyone would think it's valentines day but it's not. That's still a few months away yet. I picked up the roses, sniffing in their scent as I placed them down next to me gently. I popped a heart shaped chocolate into my mouth before I started reading the note.
"Goodmorning my love. I have left you two chocolate hearts, a bouquet of roses and this note because I got a call early this morning telling me that my grandfather wasn't doing very well and is hospital.
I didn't want to wake you up because I know you were extremely tired, Darling. I also didn't want you to freak out when you realised I wasn't there in the morning so I left this.
I don't know when I'll be back home but I love you and when you wake up can you call me so I know you're safe.
I love you -Mikey x" The smile on my face was huge and I had a tear slipping from my eyes, poor Michael. I hope Grandfather Clifford is getting better.
I reached for my cellphone and dialed up Mikey's number which I know off by heart and it didn't take too long for him to answer, "Michael, baby, are you okay?" I asked the second he picked up.
"H-he's gone, Ellyse." Michael cried into the phone and I could feel my heart start to shatter into pieces, "I'm g-glad *sniff* you're safe though, *sniff* darling. I'll be home b-by *sniff* 6. I l-love you." He said.
"No. I'll be there soon Michael. Stay there." My voice was shaky and unstable as tears filled my eyes, the sound of Michael and his family crying flowing through the phone, "I-I love you." I say before I hang up and call a taxi which arrives in a few minutes, giving me enough time to just get changed and tie my hair up so I look... Decent.
I payed the lady and ran inside the hospital and to the front desk, soon realising I have no details about Grandfather Clifford at all, "She's with me." I hear a voice say behind me and the lady at the front desk nods. I turn around to see Karen and she smiled down at me, "Come with me, love." She says and she leads me up to the room.
Her cheeks are tear stained and her eyes are glossy, her sleeves slightly wet and her make up running. Poor thing, "I'm sorry about your loss, Karen." I say as I rub her back awkwardly, the elevator opening and Karen lead me to the room.
I gently pushed the door open, nervous of what I might see, "M-michael!" I burst into tears at the sight of him, he turns around, opening his arms and I run into them, holding him tight as I cried into his chest. Thank goodness I didn't wear make up.
"I-I-I love y-you, dar-darling." He manages to squeak out through all his tears and hiccups. His hands ran up and down my back, it was comforting unlike when I did it to Karen in the elevator.
"I l-love you t-too, honey." I reply, my words muffled my his shirt. Michael's whole family stood there holding their loved ones tight, just that little bit tighter than usual - except for Grandmother Clifford who was sitting next to Grandfather Clifford, crying into the sheets and she held onto his dainty hand, her thumb running over the back of his hand before she pressed a kiss to it and whispered something to him I couldn't hear but I could read her lips.. She said "I love you, Bob." Before she kissed his cheek.
That's true love right there, ladies and gentlemen.
Michael held onto me as close as possible for minutes on end and I held him tight too, our tears juat weren't ending. If Michael's not happy then neither am I.
It tool everyone a long time to calm down, or, well, get their tears under control at least and we took Grandmother Clifford, or Claudia, which I just found out recently to dinner. Michael and I skipped out on it though because we needed to get a few things done in the house today. I told him it could've waited until tomorrow but he was determined to get some done today, using the excuse "We just need to get it done." Not a very good excuse but I let him off, knowing exactly why je wanted to move the furniture and things instead of going out to eat..
He needed to take his mind off of Bob. He was very close to his grandfather so it was very hard for him to see him pass, "I love you." He sniffled.
"I love you too." I replied as I leaned over and kissed him on his tear stained cheek.
