It wasn’t usual for Ellie to be the first one to wake up in the morning, but as soon as the sun’s golden rays peeked through the curtains her steely blue orbs slowly fluttered open, focusing on the sleeping figure beside her. She loved to watch the tattooed boy sleep, partly because she rarely saw him doing so. She loved to watch the way his chest moved, how he took in a deep, long breath, only to blow it out in a short, whispery way. He looked so serene as if he didn’t have a care in the world. This, sadly, was about to change. Snuggling up closer to him, the blue-eyed brunette splayed her slender fingers across his face, scraping her fingernails against the scruff covering his jaw.“I love you so much.” She breathed quietly, placing a feather like kiss on his eyelids.
