You didn’t know what it was about the early morning hours
which made you want to grab a book. As soon as you woke, you would pick up your
latest read and try and get a chapter or two read before you needed to get
moving for the day.
Maybe it was the calmness of a morning as the world slowly
came to life, maybe it was the peace and quiet, save for the snoring of the man
next to you, or maybe it was the fact that nothing was expected of you at this
hour. You could do whatever you wanted to do, for yourself.
Some mornings, Gladio would get up and read with you. The
two of you would sit up in bed, legs intertwined, both at peace as you read. It
was one of your favourite things to do as a couple.
You were lost in your own little world as the sun crested
over the horizon, engrossed in the characters of the novel, when you felt an
arm wrap around your middle. You turned your head to find sleepy amber eyes
staring up at you, a dopey smile on his face and his hair a mess.
Gladio snuggled into you, wrapping a leg around your body as
well, and kissed your shoulder. He shut his eyes and hummed, mumbling something
along the lines of a ‘good morning’. He was never the most talkative upon immediate wake up, give him twenty
minutes though and you couldn’t shut him up.
“Good morning to you too.” You said, gently kissing his
forehead. “Are you going to read with me this morning?”
“rdtme” Gladio muttered, burying his face in the pillow.
“Excuse me?” You asked, giggling.
“Read to me.” He said simply.
“Alright.” You said, turning back to your book. You
continued reading from where you had gotten up to before he had stirred, him
listening intently with a soft smile on his face. You spoke gently, not wanting
to disturb the peace of the morning, as you reached one of your favourite
passages from the novel. You wrapped an arm around his shoulders as you spoke,
cuddling him in closer to you.
Gladio looked at you with nothing but love in his eyes as
you read, your voice was like heaven to him, the perfect thing to wake up to. The
way you read absolutely captivated him, you brought the story to life better
than no one ever could. He adored these purely innocent moments together, when
you could just be yourselves. It was as though time stopped, and that a
universe existed for just the two of you.
You finished reading a passage and placed your bookmark
inside the book, closing it and placing it on your nightstand. You turned back
towards Gladio, getting ready to get yourself up and out of bed. Before you
could move, he placed a hand on your face, bringing himself to you for the
gentlest of kisses. He spoke a thousand words through one simple act, making
you practically melt into his arms.
The two of you broke away and held each other for a few more
moments, basking in your own little world. The real world could wait for a
little while longer.
Now, after taking a small hiatus and regaining some much needed inspiration, I realized that what I truly needed was a new space to post my writings. Y’know, something a bit more put together; something like a fresh start? However, it’s not going to be quite the same. The new blog is going to blend music with writing, which means every story I post will have a song that goes along with it. Of course, it’s up to you if you want to listen to the song or not, but it’ll be there for that special touch~
Not to mention that I’ll be posting my first story on @teeyonqs tomorrow, and I’m not sure if it’ll show in the tags, but if you follow my side blog then you’ll probably get to read it. I might just put ALL of my future writing on my side blog if all goes well, so please go follow for the writing!
(pssst, i’ll also get around to the mentions that i’ve missed over hiatus! i’ve definitely noticed them, and i’m so grateful for all of you sweet peas. i’m not brushing you off i promise. much love ❤️)

The penthouse was an absolute mess. There were empty pizza boxes scattered on the counter alongside countless bottles of alcohol. Laughter echoed throughout the building. It was Michael’s birthday, and the crew decided to celebrate.
