“It’s three in the morning, what could you possibly want?” Y/N grumbled into the phone after seeing Joe’s face and name pop up on her phone.
“Always lovely talking with you too, love.” His voice came through the phone, much too awake for Y/N.
“You called me. At three in the morning. What do you want.” She ran a hand over her face, rolling on to her back.
“I can’t call my favourite person in the world?”
“Joe.” A sigh comes through the phone, and Y/N can picture him sitting in his computer chair in front of his desk, using his feet to swing himself around, running a hand through his hair.
“I was playing a scary game for a video, and its been like two hours, and I can’t turn the lights off.”
“Well why did you call me? You have a key, you could have just come over.” She ends the sentence with a yawn, and pulls the blanket tighter around her body.
“I didn’t want to wake you up.” They both laugh lightly at that, but she knew he meant well.
“I’m awake now. So get your scared arse over here so I can go back to sleep.” Y/N’s eyes kept trying to close on their own, but she really tried to fight off the sleep.
“Will you stay on the phone until I get there?” Joe said as she listened to him move around, obviously grabbing stuff to make his way over.
“I’ll try.” She mumbled, another yawn escaping past her lips.
Over the next ten minutes, Joe kept saying random stuff to keep Y/N from falling asleep. She was grateful when she heard a key turning in her lock, followed by a door opening and closing. A few seconds later, Joe appeared in her doorway, his phone in his hand as he ended the phone call.
“Hey.” He said softly, smiling at her across the room, the light from the lights outside illuminating him.
“Shut up and come to bed.” Y/N mumbled as she turned over in bed, closing her tired eyes. She listened as Joe stripped off his clothes before climbing in beside her, moving in close. “Do you want the lights on?” She asked as he wrapped an arm around her waist, pulling their bodies together.
“No, I should be okay now.” He answered, kissing her forehead lightly. “Thanks for waking up.”
“Any time. But now I’m going back to sleep.” Her words were slurred, her mind succumbing to sleep.
“You do that, love.” Joe closed his eyes, the fear no longer present as he fell asleep.
When they both woke up the next morning though, Y/N teased him about being so scared from a game.
