Loving or Lying

A girl. Broken from the outside in. The world around her, confusing and large, yet suffocating and small.

A boy. With no meaning in life. And so close to giving up, due to one situation after another, always so disappointing to his eyes.

What will happen to these two broken people.
And can two halves make a whole?


15. Chapter 15

*April's POV*

The water from the shower instantly calmed me down as I heard Simon's voice coming from the door.

"Hey, do you mind if I stay for another night? I'm just not sure if I'm ready to go home yet, I mean they just said I could leave soon and I just walked out. I don't want to know how they'd react." I heaved a sigh and decided in my mind that I wouldn't be too bad.

"Okay, fine. I don't mind," I answered him. His footsteps echoed down the hallway as I switched the water off. I wrapped myself in a towel and traipsed down the hall to my room throwing random pieces of clothing on just to calm my chattering teeth. I didn't know what it was about Simon but now that he was around more often I was beginning to be happier and less depressed. The darkness had cleared in a way that Simon was the light. 

The TV sounded in the next room as I walked in to find Simon watching some film.

"Mind if I join you?," I asked quietly, not expecting an answer.

"Sure, come sit here." He patted the space next to him. I obliged and hugged my knees closer to my chest in an attempt to keep warm. Simon noticed this and draped the blanket from the back of the sofa over us both. Its warmth was comforting in a way as I snuggled further into it, only to fall onto Simon. I blushed and made to move away however his arm had snaked its way around my shoulders and kept me firmly planted in place. Instead of fighting him I relaxed into his warm side, leaning my head cautiously on his shoulder. He seemed to relax too, since his free hand began to stroke my hair in a calming, loving gesture. My cheeks heated once again and I began to focus on the movie. This prevented me, luckily, from turning into any more of a tomato than I already was. The film was romantic-comedy based and made things a little awkward between us at first. However, as the film progressed we began to laugh a little at the funnier parts  and loosened up a little. Before long my eyes were drooping shut slightly from fatigue and I snuggled further into his shoulder. I looked up at his face to see him staring down at me, the position we were currently in was intimate, to say the least and I could practically feel his breath on my nose.

In a split second we both turned away in embarrassment and went back to listening to the music from the movie credits. Sleep eventually took me, but not long before I fell into the endless abyss I once again felt the calming touch of his fingers going through my hair.
