Felicity curled her feet underneath herself, as she flipped through her queue on Netflix. She pulled the blanket down from the back of the couch and placing it over herself. She lifted her head as she heard the bedroom door open. She threw Tommy a sorry glance as he stumbled into her vision, headed toward the kitchen.
“Did I wake you,” she asked, sitting up to watch him.
He didn’t say anything. Instead, Felicity watched as he moved around the kitchen almost on autopilot. Grabbing a bowl, pouring in the sugary cereal that definitely belonged to her and not him most mornings, and pouring milk in.
“Tommy,” she asked, placing her feet on the floor as she moved to get up.
“I got it,” Oliver’s voice stopped her as he moved into the kitchen. She watched as Oliver grabbed the bowl from Tommy’s hands, placing it on the counter. His lips pressed against Tommy’s neck, as he whispered something into his ear. Tommy nodded slowly, and it was then that Felicity realized Tommy didn’t actually look awake. Oliver laughed lowly, his arm wrapping around Tommy’s waist as he lead him back to their bedroom.
Felicity sat back down on the couch, not surprised when Oliver walked right back out of the room and sat next to her.
“When did you get out of bed?”
“An hour ago? I couldn’t fall asleep.” Felicity shifted her body until she was leaning against the arm rest of the couch, her feet curled up in Oliver’s lap. “What was that exactly?”
“Sometimes Tommy sleep eats.”
“Raisa swore he was going to give her a heart attack when we were kids. Always finding him half-zombied out in the kitchen.”
“I’ve lived with you guys for three years,” Felicity started. “I’ve been sleeping in the same bed as you two for a year and a half.”
“Yes,” Oliver confirmed, waiting for her to make her point.
“Why haven’t I ever noticed this before?”
“Do you have any idea how hard it is to wake you up?”
“Well not all of can be freakishly light sleepers,” she teased. “I’m just saying three years. Any other major secrets you two keeping from me?”
“I don’t think Tommy’s weird sleep patterns count as a major secret.”
