Can I get a 24 and a 34 with Chib’s pretty please?!
“I’ll sleep under the
sheets, you sleep on top of them.” “I had a nightmare about you and just wanted
to make sure you’re okay.”
I was beyond angry, Chibs had been out
with the boys every night since they came back from a successful run, bar after
bar he always came home drunk and thinking giving me a small kiss and cuddling
me was going to make me forgive him for everything. This situation got worse
after two weeks of making me feel the same way, I didn’t see my old man at all
and he was going on a run once again so I just hid my discomfort when he told
me, the last thing I wanted to do was to fight with Chibs before he left.
okay lass?” he said before kissing me on the cheek

safe” I said lowly and he nodded before giving me a gentle kiss.
you love” he said before heading out the door “Love ya” he said and I waved at him before seeing him take off the
After another day alone I couldn’t deal
anymore, after work I headed home to pack a small bag and get away from Charming
for the weekend. I took everything I needed for a getaway and headed out, about
an hour and a half from Charming there was a small lounge that had a spa and
seemed like the perfect option.
The run was cut short and Chibs arrived
home sooner than expected, all he wanted was to be with his old lady after
several weeks of going out and doing business and have a calm weekend at home
but when he got there she was nowhere to be seen, he grew desperate and looked
around and saw a lot of her stuff still there, almost all her clothes with a
few exceptions but the lack of her things in the bathroom was all he needed to
know that she went away, but he had no idea where or why.
“Hello?” I said with a groggy voice, a good
massage was all I needed for life to come back to my body.
where the hell are you?” said the Scottish man at me.
away for the weekend, I’m at that small lounge outside of Charming.”
I said quickly turning on the comfortable bed to look at the menu and order
something for lunch “I thought it was a
good idea since you were going to be away”
worried love, we came back earlier and I thought we could have a quiet weekend
together” he said and I almost sighed on the phone.
some time off, Filip. This past two weeks have been crazy busy at work and you
haven’t been here” I said “I
might sound whiny but I needed you there and you were not and now I’m starting
to feel relief and peace, I’d rather stay here for the rest of the weekend and
we can talk tomorrow night when I get back” I could almost feel my heart
breaking after all this time I’ve never wanted to be away from my old man but I
was too stressed, too filled with negativity and angry that I needed this
before I flipped him off and destroyed everything good we have.
love, whatever you need” he said and I heard his heavy breathing on the other
side of the line “I’m so sorry I
neglected ya, YN. You know I love ya right?”
Filip. I love you too. Have a good night” I said and the call was soon over. I was
sound asleep when the sound of my phone woke me up, I rubbed my eyes before
taking my phone and seeing the caller ID. “Filip?”
“Lass, I had a nightmare about you and
just wanted to make sure you’re okay.” I felt my heart flutter at his comment
and I smiled a bit “Are you okay?”
“Yes, love. I’m okay” I said, I could hear his breathing from
the other side and I imagined how he looked right now, probably only wearing
some old pants or his boxers and no shirt. Seating against the headboard phone
in hand. “I’d be better if you were here”
I whispered. “I know what I said but,
this could be good for us.” I said and I could almost see him nodding. “Are you coming?” I said when I didn’t
hear an answer from him.
love. I’ll be there soon” a bit more than an hour later Chibs called me again, I
opened the room’s door when I heard his soft nock.
you are here” I said crushing myself against his chest and he kissed me softly. “I’m sorry I was all pissy”
I was a wanker and didn’t make my old lady a priority” he said I nodded slowly kissing him once
again before going back to bed together.
Filip” I said when he threw himself on top of the sheets instead of under, I immediately
moved the sheets to cover myself with the soft material.
too hot, baby so we have a problem” he said giving me a little pout and
making me roll my eyes at him.
“I’ll sleep under the sheets, you sleep on top of them.” I said
moving to my side of bed and closing my eyes “Cuddle me though” I said and he laughed a bit.
“Of course, my love” he said kissing me on the back of my neck.
