Love and War

Bonnie can't help but think life would be so much easier if she didn't have to make choices. If she didn't have to choose between family or a future. If she didn't have to choose between Eli or Alfie. If she didn't have to choose between success or loyalty. If she didn't have to choose between one kind of love of the other.


19. Nineteen

I was determined not to fall asleep and I wasn't aware that I did until I'm being woken up by Eli. It takes me a moment to adjust as I wonder where I am and who I'm with. I see the art on the walls and a blur of Eli's hair through the darkness and relax again, falling back into his chest to fall asleep again. 

"Bonnie." he chuckles. "Wake up. You have to go home."

"No, I have to stay here." I mutter sleepily, burying my head into his neck because I've noticed that when I do that, he holds me closer. 

I feel his arms tighten around me as he kisses my forehead. "You can come back again later tonight. Come on, I'm sorry, I don't want you to leave but Alfie's outside.

"Alfie's here?" 

"Yes, to pick you up." 

"Did you speak to him?"

"No. I spotted him out of the window."

I frown, propping myself up on my elbows. "Did you sleep?"

He shakes his head, but he's smiling a little. "It's fine."

"I'm only coming later if you do some sleep." I mumble, still half asleep.

He laughs. "You aren't making sense anymore. Come on, it's time to go."

I sigh. I really love this situation right now. It's still really quite dark in here with just the slightest dim glow in the room. I can make out Eli and we're both just so relaxed. I don't think we've ever been relaxed around each other. I never want it to end. 

It's as if he reads my mind. 

"You'll be back here later, don't worry." he chuckles, getting up. He pulls me up gently and puts my coat around me, leaning down and kissing me equally as gently. "See you, Bonnie."

I pull him down towards me, kissing him again. I'll never have enough of him. 

"Bye." I smile and he chuckles. 

I walk outside to Alfie who looks exhausted but he smiles anyway. 

"You okay?" he asks.

I nod. "Yes, thank you. You?"

He sighs but smiles still. "Tired but okay thanks."

I stop walking and hug him. He hesitates, shocked at my gesture, but hugs me back with so much love. 

"Thank you for doing this, Alfie." I whisper. 

He hugs me tighter. "It's no problem."
