You woke up to the sound of soft snores from the sleeping body next to you. You looked over to Calum, seeing his mouth move ever so slightly with every snore. You chuckled at him, causing him to stir but not wake up. You looked over at the alarm clock and groaned as you saw what it said.
You were never one for waking up early and neither was Calum but for some reason you just weren’t going to fall back asleep. You slowly removed the bed sheet and swung your legs over the side of the bed. You slipped on your cute slippers and shuffled your way to the bathroom.
You grabbed the towel off the railing and wrapped it around yourself. You stepped out of the shower, still trying to be quiet even though Calum was probably awake. Your hair was up in a messy bun and the make up you forgot to take off the night before was smudged across your face. You grabbed your make up wipes and began to take off the ruined make up. You brushed your teeth and moisturised your body before making you way back to the bedroom.
“What a nice sight to wake up to”
Calum’s voice made you jump which almost made your towel drop but you managed to catch it before it fell to the ground.
“Calum don’t scare me like that!”
You gave him a pout and he pouted back. You walked over to his side of the bed where he was still lying all snuggled up in the sheets. You gave him a quick peck on his still pouted lips before walking over to your dresser to find some comfy clothes to lounge around in.
You eventually decided on a pair of grey sweatpants and loose plain white crop top. You kept your hair in the messy bun and didn’t bother to put any make up on.
“You look cute”
“Calum I’m wearing sweatpants, my hair is a mess and I have no make up on. How is that cute?”
You raised your eyebrows at him, waiting for his answer. He just shrugged and instead opened his arms for you. You climbed over the bed and collapsed into them. Calum began to trace little patterns on your arm which gave you goosebumps. You remained in silence for a few minutes before Calum finally spoke.
“Hey what time is it?”
You glanced over at the alarm to see that it had just gone past 7 O'clock. Calum’s stomach made a loud rumbling noise and you decided that you should go and make breakfast.
“Time for breakfast”
“Mmmm I’m starving”
“I can tell”
You untangled yourself from Calum’s arms and left him in his cocoon of bedsheets to go and make breakfast.
You grabbed two mugs and flicked the switch on the kettle. You got out the ingredients needed for pancakes and set everything up. You poured the pancake mix into the frying pan and left it for a minute to finish making coffee. Once the coffee was done you returned to the pancakes, flipping them over a couple times before serving them up on a plate. You got out some fresh strawberries and chopped them into halves, scattering them around the plate. Finally you drizzled some maple syrup over them and carried them through to the dining room.
“Calum, breakfast is ready!”
You went back to the kitchen to get the coffees and you heard the thuds of Calum’s feet on the stairs. He met you at the bottom, throwing his arm around your shoulder and planting a quick kiss on the side of your head.
“Thanks babe, this looks great”
“Yeah but you’re washing up”
Calum pouted at you and gave you a look you would usually give in to.
“Don’t look at me like that”
He grinned, hoping it would change your mind but it didn’t. He eventually gave up and began to eat his pancakes. You smirked to yourself before tucking into your pancakes as well.
“Calum! What the hell happened?”
You’d left Calum alone for 5 minutes to do the washing up and returned to see half the sink had overflown with water, leaving a massive puddle on the floor, and bubbles all over the place.
“I’m sorry I got distracted and left the tap running”
He was trying to hold in a laugh but you, however, were not amused as you knew you would be the one who had to clean it up. He saw the look on your face and immediately stopped smiling and grabbed a tea towel. You rolled your eyes at him and grabbed one as well. You both began to dry up the dishes which Calum
had actually managed to do himself. You were almost finished and you wanted to just go and chill out on the couch, but Calum had other ideas. He began to flick bubbles at you, getting them in your hair and all over your clothes.
“Really Calum? How old are you, 5?
You began to flick bubbles at him too and it ended up with you both in fits of giggles and the kitchen absolutely soaked. You both stopped and looked around the kitchen, out of breath.
“I really wasn’t planning on cleaning the kitchen today but looks like we’re gonna have to”
“I’m sorry, we?
“Yes Calum you’re helping me. We both made this mess, we both have to clean it up”
Calum groaned and engulfed you in a bear hug so you could barely breathe.
“If you let go of me and help me clean the kitchen I’ll buy you ice cream. Or whatever else you want”
Calum thought about it for a moment before releasing you.
