Apocalypse Series Part 11
You yelped as you jumped away from T/C/N, the pounding was loud, and scared the living crap out of you. He looked over to you, and put his index finger over his mouth as a cute way of telling you to shut up.
He looked out the window.
“Just some zombies.” Oh and yes, he said it so casually. Like as if these things couldn’t kill him.
“There’s two, so I’m going to need your help.” You nodded and T/C/N handed you a knife. You got off the couch and followed behind him. He opened the door and pushed the zombie outside. The two of them started fighting, and you took on the second one. You stabbed its brains, and blood splattered all over your face and hands. T/C/N had blood on him too. You had to admit, he looked kind of hot fighting and getting blood on him. Little did you know he was thinking the same thing about you.
“Come on,” The two of you were breathing heavily.
“Let’s go inside.” You said and he followed you. T/C/N locked the door behind you. You went into the kitchen and washed your hands. Then you went to the bathroom, where T/C/N was. You took as washcloth and cleaned your face. T/C/N followed suit.
“Well that was fun.” You said sarcastically, ringing out the washcloth.
“Totally.” He did the same as you. You took his washcloth and hung the both of them up to dry.
You sat back down with T/C/N on the couch. It was awkward, since you were previously interrupted, and neither of you didn’t know how to get back into it. You sat in an awkward silence for a few minutes. He cleared his throat.
“Um, how about we have dinner?”
“Yeah, sure. That sounds like a good idea.” You got off of the couch. You were glad he brought that up because you couldn’t come up with anything to say.
The two of you cooked dinner together, T/C/N helping you out. He even sneaked his way into guiding your hand while you where slicing with the knife, it was smooth. You felt his body hovering over yours, and his cool breath breezing over your neck. You blushed and got all kinds of shivers.
You ate the meal, pretty much in a comfortable silence.
After eating, you helped clean up. You went to throw away some trash when you bumped into T/C/N. The garbage went flying and you fell into his embrace.
“Woah. Sorry. You okay there?” You liked the feel of his arms holding you up.
“Yeah.” You said nervously. You scrambled to pick up the trash and made sure it went in the trash can this time. You washed your hands and made sure there was nothing else to clean up. You noticed T/C/N watching you.
“What?” You asked, thinking you had food on your face or in your hair. He smiled.
“Nothing.” He said simply.
The rest of the night was just a whole lot of awkward tension. You know that you were expecting a kiss, and now you’ve been thrown off track. You didn’t want to initiate the question, or the kiss for that matter, you wanted T/C/N to feel comfortable with it.
That night, you got into bed, and T/C/N immediately put his arm around you. He’s never done that before. He snuggled up on your shoulder. With a turn of your head, both of your eyes would meet.
“You make me happy, Y/N.” You smiled widely.
“You make me happy too, T/F/N.” He took a risk and kissed your forehead. You closed your eyes as you felt his lips leave a tingling sensation on your skin.
When he pulled away, he looked back into your eyes. The two of you were gazing at each other for a while. You didn’t know how long, you’d gotten lost in his e/c eyes. But you finally said
“Can we kiss already?” He laughed.
“I thought you’d never ask.” He cupped your cheek and pulled you in. His lips hovered dangerously close over yours. You felt his breath on your lips for a few seconds. His eyes flicked from your eyes back to your lips. You finally connected your lips with his, stopping all hesitation. Your lips melted into his, your stomach growed into a raging fire. Everything about the kiss was perfect. His hand holding your cheek. His arm around your waist. Your legs barely touching. The smell of his cologne. His lips.
You pulled away from the kiss, and opened your eyes. The two of you looked at each other, you were in disbelief that you had just kissed the man you’ve been crushing on since long before the world ended. Your thoughts about him never changed after all of this time, they only grew.
T/C/N pulled you in for another kiss, this time he pressed his lips harder against you. You wanted to moan, and you almost did, but you couldn’t do that so early. You put your hands on his chest. This kiss was much longer, and you held on for as long as you had breath. You even grabbed his shirt when he tried to pull away for air. You were the one to effectively pull away, and you both were breathing heavy. T/C/N moved his hand from your cheek to the back of your neck. He pulled you in closer, and your foreheads were leaning upon each other.
“You’re a really good kisser Y/N.”
“As are you, T/F/N.” He smiled. He kissed you once more, this time more gently. You hated when his lips departed from yours. They were so addictive you just wanted more. His hand slipped away from the back of your neck, which no longer required your foreheads to be touching.
“Goodnight Y/N.” He said casually.
You didn’t sleep much, adrenaline was rushing through your being, and T/C/N was taking up your mind. You replayed the kiss in your head. Over. And over. It was so magical and perfect. You didn’t know how he just pulled away like that, you were still stuck in the heat of the moment for a good hour after the kiss.
The next day you spent cleaning up around the house, gardening, and anything else that needed to be done. T/C/N went out on a supply run, to get anything he could find that you might be able to use. When he came back you had a gourmet dinner prepared, homemade sandwiches.
The two of you ate dinner and you asked him how everything went.
“Pretty good. Didn’t run into many zombies, or any people.” You nodded and took a bite.
“How about things here?”
“Alright.” You answered simply.
After eating the two of you unloaded the car of its supplies. You found your favorite snack amongst the pile of things and you rejoiced to T/C/N.
“Oh yeah. I remember those. You’d almost always eat them in class.” You smiled as you admired the snack food you thought that you’d never see again. It didn’t even occur to you that T/C/N might have brought them because he knew you loved them.
“Where’d you get all this stuff.” He literally had a mountain of foods, medicines, tools, even feminine products. You were surprised to see that he recognized the latter of the bunch.
“Just nearby shops. I found one that has another generator, but I left it because I need your help getting it.”
“You want to do that tomorrow?” You asked. He said yes.
Once everything was in the house you sat down on the familiar couch. You opened a book and started reading.
“So you really like reading, huh?” He sat down comfortably close to you.
“Yeah. It usually depends on the type. Why?”
“I thought it was just to impress me, and believe me, it did. But it impresses me even more now.” You smile and close the book, realizing that he’s going to keep distracting you.
“You’re so beautiful.” He says softly, looking down at you. You blush.
“I don’t know about that…” you tuck a strand of hair behind your ear.
“Y/N, what? You are so very beautiful.” You didn’t say anything. He wraped his arms around your sides and pulled you up on to his lap. He played with your hair. Pinched the lobes of your ears with his fingers. Stared into your eyes. Booped your nose. Cupped your cheeks, and put his thumbs over your lips.
“They’re so, soft.” He said slowly and quietly. It was the first thing he had said in minutes. He took your hands and examined each finger, then brought the backs of your hands to his lips and kissed them, one by one.
“I find you very beautiful Y/N. You may not think it, but I do. I want you to always remember that.” He gave you a chaste kiss on the lips. He pulled away slowly.
“Thank you.” You blushed.
“I think you’re very handsome.” You say and he chuckled. You wrapped your arms around his neck, and rested your head on his chest. The two of you sat in silence, and you thought he fell asleep, but when you looked up at him, he was already looking down at you.
“Have something on your mind?” You nodded and looked back down.
“The world. It’s over. And it’s going to be over, forever. That scares me.” T/C/N paused before responding. You felt the soft inhales and exhales of his breathing. Whenever his chest rose, your head would rise too.
“I’m scared too, Y/N. But we have each other. We always will. I solemnly swear to protect you, always. I don’t want to go a day without you in this world, Y/N.” He held your hand. A tear fell down your cheek.
“I miss how things used to be. Well, besides us not being together of course.”
“I do too. But maybe it’s for the best. Maybe something good will come out of this mess. You never know.” You nodded.
“How about you get some sleep, yeah?”
“Yeah.” You got up, and T/C/N started to get up too.
“If you’re not tired, you don’t have to come.” You didn’t want to make him feel like he had to follow you everywhere.
“I want to.” He followed you to the bedroom. You got comfortable in bed, and instead of your usual position of facing the ceiling, you layed on your side and faced T/C/N. He pulled you into his chest, and wrapped his arms around you. He kissed you on your forehead. His thumb rubbed circles around your back, and he whispered sweet and calming phrases into your ear. The last thing you heard before falling asleep was
“Goodnight beautiful.” You slept very well that night, and you were eternally greatful for T/C/N being there.
