In the best possible way, you have absolutely wrecked me. You see, I fell in love with you knowing that there was never any possibility of being with you. Knowing full well that a sizable chunk of your heart will always be wrapped up in our friend. And that much was actually okay with me right up to the point the you actually chose me. Because then you just turned everything in its head. And I got everything that I wanted…
I woke up to the sound of Wolf whining. I didn’t know why, but got up anyways to check on him. He was sitting at the door, looking at the rain that was falling. “What is it, Wolfie?” I kneeled and pet behind his ears. “Don’t like the rain?” I said as he stared outside.
Suddenly there was a loud clap of thunder.
I jumped and looked outside, seeing the lightning. I quickly ran back to our room and woke Daniel up. “Hmm?” He rubbed his eyes.
“I’m scared.” I said quietly, burying my face in his chest and holding onto him.
“Of what?” He wrapped his arm around me.
There was another loud thunder bang. “That.” I said, moving closer to him.
He chuckled. “Joey, it can’t hurt you.” He rubbed my back.
“I don’t care. It’s loud.” I pouted.
He pulled me close and kissed my cheek. “You’re okay.” He whispered.
I whimpered slightly. “Why is it so loud?” I whispered.
He squeezed my shoulders and kissed my forehead. “To torture you.” He said jokingly.
I looked up at him. “I’m serious.” I said.
“Okay, sorry” He smiled. “I’m trying to make you feel better.” He said.
I sighed and cuddled closer to him.
He rubbed my back soothingly. “I’m here to protect you.” He kissed my cheek.
I sighed happily, nodding. I rested my head on his chest, it’s been quiet out for a while and I was slowly falling back asleep. And then there was the clap of thunder. I jumped and clung to Daniel again.
“Joey.. It can’t hurt you.” He said softly, tightening his arms around me.
I looked up at him.
“Nothing can. Not while I’m here.” He pressed a kiss to my nose.
