afternoon before a huge show is not the best time to get sick or injure
yourself, and believe me slicing my finger open was far from my intention when
I decided to make some lunch before heading off. But now I was here, with a
cumbersome bandage wrapped around my thumb, about to play my show in Arlington.
The only fun part was that I wrote 13 on it, making loads of fans go crazy
since it’s the closest they’ve had to a ‘13’ on my hand in a while.
*earlier that day*
reason the jar of olive oil that we had in the cupboard wasn’t cooperating when
I tried to open it, and Adam was in the shower so couldn’t open it for me. I
just needed a little to put in the salad dressing I was making.
So the next
logical step in my mind is to run a knife around the inside of the rim to loosen
it a little. I found a little sharp knife and began to run it around the rim.
It was all going well until it slipped….
SHIT!” I screamed as the knife cut into my thumb.
heavy footsteps making their way into the kitchen.
oh…. ok…..” Adam stopped as soon as he saw my thumb, which I didn’t want to
look at right now. He grabbed a bunch of paper towelling and wrapped it around
my thumb, squeezing slightly and making me cringe in pain.
in shining…. Underpants?” I said giggling as I saw my boyfriend standing there in
just his underpants.
“Hey! I had
only just gotten out of the shower when you screamed….” He replied, pouting
slightly. I just smiled at him as best as I could with a throbbing thumb and
leaned towards him as he wrapped his free arm around my shoulder, gave a a quick kiss, and led me
over to one of the bar stools at the counter.
see what the damage is…” He said, unwrapping my thumb gently.
want to look!” I said, closing my eyes.
just breath…. calm down…. it’s probably fine.” He said reassuringly as he
finished unwrapping the paper towels.
the verdict Doctor Adam?” I asked, opening my eyes slightly to look at him. His
brow was furrowed in thought.
“I’d say it
might be okay with just some antiseptic and a bandage…. but you should probably
get it checked out by a doctor…..might needed stitches…” He told me, looking at
my thumb and dabbing at it with the towel as it was obviously still bleeding.
I took a
deep breath and took a quick look at my injured thumb…. It looked pretty gnarly.
said, watching the blood come out slowly and feeling pain as I tried to move
it, “Well this isn’t going to make playing the piano very easy is it…”
Adam soon got to cleaning it off and wrapping it, placing a kiss on my bandage as soon as it was done, like with a little kid.
“Almost good as new!” He said, making me smile.
*back to the evening*
I had sent
pictures of my injury to basically everyone I knew, including my parents. My
mum obviously freaked out in her worst-case-scenario-Andrea way, but Austin and
my dad just thought it was cool.
have first aid people with us on tour, who I went to as soon as I had arrived
at the stadium. They unwrapped the temporary bandage Adam had put on and
cleaned it up a little, before putting on steristrips and re-wrapping it while
handing me some mild painkillers, telling me it should be fine but I should
still see an actual doctor about it sometime tomorrow.
must go on I guess, injured finger or not…. And Ellie ‘The Matchmaker’ Goulding
was here too, which made everything better, at least for the night.
to anon for this wonderful and cute request!
It’s about 2:58am and I can’t sleep and neither can Nate, So
we’re here staring at the ceiling talking about random stuff, like our future.
“well do you see you’re self having, I don’t know….a family
“Um yeah…I see myself having a beautiful wife, but let’s
cross that off the list since you’re right beside me and maybe 1 or 2
kids….You?” he said looking at me with a smile and I smiled back
“You want kids? A boy or a girl?” I asked
“I think I want a girl.”
“Why? I would think you wanted a boy because you could dress
him up in cute jerseys and teach him your ways”
“Yeah but I feel like with a girl I would protect her, dress
her up, watch her come home with cute pink tails in her hair and take her to
ballet. She will be daddy’s little girl, my princess. Oh and she will be like a
mini you, sassy but classy.” He said looking up at me. I giggled and smiled at
his last sentence
“Wait, we’re talking some much about me! What about you do
you want kids?” he said. I immediately started to become antsy. I began playing
with the bottom off my shirt, then moved to my thumbs, then started braiding my
hair…..a weird tendency I had. I looked but up at Nate while continuing to
braid my hair.
“Yeah……but I kinda wanted one sometime soon……” I said
quietly and started trailing off, then looked away from Nate because I started
getting embarrassed. I’m not really sure why I’m getting embarrassed. I never
get embarrassed talking kids, especially my own husband.
“Is y/n getting embarrassed?” Nate teased
“No” I said looking out the window located in front of our
“Ok…” he answered and started to copy my actions by looking
out the large window
I laid back down and curled into Nate’s chest and Nate took
his arm and out it around me, making me smile. I looked at my rings that are
placed on my ring finger that were shimmering from the moon light coming from
“You know I want a baby sometime soon to you know?” Nate
I looked up at Nate and smiled then I leaned in and pecked
“Maybe we should get to that soon…” Nate said pecking my
pecking my pecks again then moving his hands down my sides.
“That will be on the to do list, for tomorrow” I said and
moved his hands from where he had placed them and put them back to my shoulders
“Ok” he said getting excited and kissed my forehead. I shut
my eyes and began to fall asleep.
I fell asleep thinking about how our lives are going to
