Y/n rolled over on the massive king size bed she had been fast asleep in, immediately regretting it. The brightness of the beating sun was unbearable. Even with her eyes closed It literally felt like it was piercing through her eyelids.
Y/n squeezed them tighter with a low groan, turning her body away from the nature’s alarm clock. She was so not ready to get up…but going back to sleep wasnt an option. Slowly she cracked her eyes open giving them time to adjust to the light. Once her vision cleared, she was met with a familiar chiseled torso. And just like that her morning grumpiness was the least of her worries. Her hands ran across his bare chest as she looked up to see the blue eyes of the man she loved for three years staring back.
“It’s about time you woke up,” Calum murmured, a boyish grin pulling at the corners of his lips.
The same grin that had her head over heels from the moment he flashed it to her, her last year of high school. The had met through mutual friends at a party and immediately hit it off. They were both 16 at the time and shared a lot of interests despite aspiring for different things in life. They were on the same page where it mattered.
Even back then Y/n knew Calum was special, she had fallen for him the moment they met. When they got together a few month later, her feelings for him only intensified. She always wanted to see him win in all aspects of life. She supported him with an undying nature he had previously only seen in family.
When he made Arsenal’s first team the 2012/2013 season she couldn’t have been more ecstatic for him. How could she not be? He was doing what he loved for the team he loved. And like It should be in a healthy relationship–Calum was very encouraging of Y/n’s dreams as well. He could barely contain his enthusiasm when Y/n was accepted in her transfer to UCL to study psychology. Her dream was to become a child therapist and he was happy to see her moving towards making that happen.They, at just 19, were in love and working towards their goals. Even with obstacles and difficulties they faced life was good.
“How long have you been up?” she croaked out, her voice still raspy with sleep. Calum propped his head on his hand and used his elbow to brace himself. He shrugged, brushing fly away strands of hair out of her face. “A while,”
“Why arent you dressed? Have you just been watching me sleep the whole time?” she scrunched up her face at the thought. He didnt have time to be in bed just gazing at her, he had training. He should’ve been up taking a shower and getting ready since he had been up for ’ a while’.
“You know you love it,” he teased as he continued playing with her hair.
“I really don’t. It’s creepy,” y/n swatted his hand away rolling over to face the opposite wall. His low laughter invaded the space around her. It was different from how he normally sounded, more rough and deep…it was sexy.
She felt the bed shift a bit, letting her know he had closed the space she put between them. she felt him wrap one arm around her waist and he tugged her closer to him, until her back was on his chest.
“But you love me anyways,” he whispered in her ear, a slight arrogance to his tone. He was so cocky sometimes,but definitely not wrong. Y/n smiled to herself, deciding to mess with him.
“Hmm, I dont know about all that. I don’t know if I can be with a guy who watches me while I sleep. That’s some stalker type shit, I don’t think I can deal,” she teased, scooting away to emphasize her point.
Calum however wasnt letting her off so easy; he wrapped both arms around her this time keeping her situated. A smirk pulling his lips upward, she wanted to play games. Well could do that too. He knew she was super ticklish and decided to use that to his advantage. He wiggled his fingers against her her sides.
“What were you saying?“he taunted continuing to tickle her,” I’m a what?“
Y/n screamed out in laughter while tying in vain to squirm away from him, “Calum, stoppp,” she squealed. It literally was getting hard to breath how much she was laughing.
“Not until you admit you love me and that it turns you on when I watch you sleep,” he smirked.
“No!” she refused. He tickled her harder, this time actually tickling her skin since her tank top rode up with all her squirming. “Calum,” she whined.
“Say it!” he demanded.
“Say it Y/n,” he demanded again, his fingers digging more into her sides.
“Fine!” she gave in, not being able to take it any longer. “I love it when you watch me sleep,” she gasped.
“And,” he probed as his fingers slowed down.
Y/n gazed up at him, her eyes begging him not to make her say it. He raised his hand over her body again in a threatening manner.
“And it totally turns me on,” she repeated dryly.
“Aww, you can sound a bit more enthusiastic when you say it babe,” he said, feigning hurt as he jabbed his finger into her side.
“Calum,” she warned, swatting his finger away. He gave her a devilish smirk and continued his poking. “Calum, come on, stop,”
“Or you’ll what?” he mocked as he held her close to him and continued his poking.
Y/n getting annoyed now; it was cute for the first couple seconds, now he was just getting on her nerves. He thought it was still a game and she was over it.
“St-stop…Stop!” she yelled. With a hard jab of her elbow, she managed to get him off her and sprang off the bed.
By the look on his face, it was pretty obvious he hadn’t been expecting that. “What the hell is your problem?” he asked, his features now showing slight anger. He couldn’t seriously be mad at her, he was the one who didnt know when to quit. Besides Y/n was such he’s taking worse blows from his teammates.
“I told you to stop,” she said, pushing her hair away from her face. He wasnt gonna make her feel bad, she made up her mind…until she noticed the quickly bruising the sore red spot in the middle of his chest. How hard had she hit him??
He looked down and rubbed the sore spot, flinching ever so slightly. Y/n immediately felt worse. She hadn’t meant to hurt him, but she really didn’t like it when he would kerp doing things even after she asked him to stop. He knew that, so it was technically his fault. She shouldnt feel bad at all.
But she did; she dropped her shoulders and released a sigh. She climbed back up on the bed and slowly crawled over to him. “I’m sorry,” she started to say.This time it was Calum’s turn to roll off the bed. “Don’t bother apologizing,” he said, starting to walking into the bathroom within the room they shared.
“Cal….don’t be like that.” She said softly,trailing behind him into the bathroom,“I’m sorry I hit you so hard. I didn’t mean to hurt you,”
“You didnt,"he said flatly before adding,"I was just playing around with you, and you had to take it to another level.”
he rummaged around the cabinet for his razor and shaving cream, the pissed expression not letting up. Y/n wrapped her arms around his torso from behind and rest her cheek against his exposed back. She felt his muscles constrict underneath her. “I know…I really am sorry. Please forgive me,” she pleaded in a small voice.
He planted his hands on the counter and hung his head low, releasing a deep breath. He stayed still for a few seconds before turning his head to the side to look back at her. She craned her neck up at him–he stood a whole foot taller than her at 6”— looking at him with big, apologetic eyes.
Calum sighed turning in her embrace so he faced her and his back was against the counter. She rest her chin on his chest and looked up at him with the same pleading eyes.
"Dont be mad.”
“You know I can’t stay mad at you when you look at me like that,” he said with a groan. Y/n smile then pressed her lips against his chest in an appreciative kiss.
He let out another groan, one that sounded a lot more like a growl, before dipping his head down and covering her mouth with his lips. She giggled at his eagerness, which made Calum kiss her even harder. He wrapped his arms firmly around her waist, picking her up and turning so he could place her down on the counter he had previously been leaning on. It worked out great because she was high enough he didn’t have to break his back leaning down so far to kiss her.
When he pulled away for air, she was smiling widely at him and it made his heart flutter in his chest in an unmanly manner. “What was that for?” she questioned.
“I didn’t get my good morning kiss.“he said matter of factly,” You were too busy abusing me.”
Y/n scoffed; he was definitely not gonna blame the whole sequence of events on her. Hitting him might have been wrong and she felt bad about it but he was still ultimately the reason it happened.
“It was your own fault,"she chided.
"Or maybe you’re just mean."he shot back.
Y/n blinked before laughing at his childish response, and her laughter only brought a smile to Calum’s face. “Well, maybe if you had stopped poking and tickling me when I told you to, none of that wouldve happened and I would have given you a proper morning greeting,” she replied with a mischievous glint in her eyes.
“Is that so?” Calum asked raising an eyebrow.
"Mayy-bee."she shrugged with a devilish smile, absentmindedly trailing her fingers across his skin. Leaving goosebumps in her wake; her sudden teasing nature piqued Calum’s interest.
"maybe you should show me what it would’ve been,” he suggested; responding to her teasing with alittle of his own– he pressed a line of kisses starting at her ear and making his way down her jaw line.
She giggled before placing her small hands on his bare, broad shoulders. “Too late."she grinned,” We have to get ready– you have training, I have class,” she said, pushing gently for him to move. Instead he stayed where he was, and groaned into her shoulder. Oh well.
“Move. ” Y/n ordered and with one hard shove, she succeeded in pushing Calum far enough so that she could hop down from the counter.
“Where are you going?” He asked, turning to look at her with lust still clouding his eyes. Y/n looked at him like was stupid. It was comical how even the implication of sex made guys so intellectually dumb.
“I need to get a shower so I can start getting ready,” she said slowly so he could catch every word without a doubt,“so do you.”
His eyes lit up for a second and Y/n caught what he thought before quickly shooting that down.
“I meant separately, loser.” She clarified. She was planning to use this bathroom, and he could use the other one in the hall.
Calum pouted,“you’re no fun.”
“Oh well.” Y/n said simply,“you can get out now.”
But he didn’t move.
“Let me shower in her too,"he said suddenly. Ugh. They didn’t have time for this.
“we’ll save ourselves both some time if we showered together…you know help each other out” he suggested, grabbing her wrists and pulling her to him again. Like he thought the closer they were the more like Y/n would agree with him.
“Yeah, because that will really save us time. Come on Calum, i’m not stupid .”she rolled her eyes.
“come on Y/n. I promise I’ll behave, let me shower here. ” he said, his voice husky in her ear. That almost made her cave, but she knew better than to let him have his way. They really couldn’t afford to mess around and thats all a shower with him would lead to. It just wasn’t a good idea.
“Fine,” she sighed. Calum’s smile grew wider on his face and he dipped his head in for another kiss. Y/n, however, brought her hand up and placed it over his mouth.
“You can shower in here. I’ll use the bathroom in the hall.” She took advantage of the fact he was stunned by her words and side stepped him. “But hurry up babe; dont wanna be late.” With a final wink, she closed the door, leaving her stunned boyfriend behind.
The last thing she heard before heading out the room was him loudly shout “Tease!”
