Newt had noticed something off about you in the past couple of days. You were spending more time focused on your work and less time doing the things you loved. Whenever he would finally get a free moment away from the creatures pr his book and invite you to sit with him, you denied it, saying that you simply had too much to do. It had gotten to the point where you had worked yourself up so much that you were suffering from a massive stomach ache. This was the final straw for Newt.
He forced you to stay in bed, relaxing in your pajamas, while he fixed you a cup of chamomile tea. Once your tea was fixed the way Newt knew you liked it, he carried it into the bed you two shared. No matter how much you begged him, he wouldn’t let you do any work. “(Y/N), I love you and I care about you, and you working and stressing until you’re like this isn’t only hurting you, it’s hurting me to watch you do this to yourself.” It was a dirty move, and he knew it, but he had to figure out a way to get you to listen to him.
Sighing, you leaned back into your pillows, taking the warm cup into your hands. You sat in bed and drank the tea while Newt went down into his case to feed the creatures. “After that, I’m all yours, okay?” He had promised, pressing a soft kiss to your forehead. You were grateful that Newt cared as much as he did for you and you knew that you often pushed yourself past your limits, so far that by the time you realized what you were doing, you ended up in a position like you had been in earlier: with a stomach ache, shaking, exhausted, and tired of everything. So in a way, it was nice to have Newt there to tell you when you needed to stop and relax, even if his stubborn ways of doing it were slightly frustrating.
As he promised, as soon as Newt was done with the creatures, he came back out of his case and changed into his pajamas. You had finished your tea by then and were actually feeling a lot more relaxed than you had been. As Newt climbed into bed next to you, you scooted over so that you were pressed into his side. “Thank you, Newt. It means a lot to me that you care this much” You whispered softly, wrapping your arms around his torso and laying your head on his chest. “Of course, my love. I would do anything for you if it meant that you were content and happy.” He kissed the top of your head and pulled you even closer. “I love you, (Y/N).” He said, sighing happily and closing his eyes. “I love you, too.” You mumbled back. You feel asleep to the steady beat of his heart and the warmth of his embrace.
