This Is Only The Beginning: Chpter 8
Josh is laying out while I’m on social networks. Right now is as good a time as any to update my online life. I decide to tweet “Josh helped me get a kitty!!” Complete with a kitty emoji, of course. I close my twitter app and open my Instagram app. Posting a picture of Nala. It’s probably too soon to flaunt my whole ‘Josh and Me’ album at them so I take a picture of my lower half with the beach horizon posting it on Instagram. I have to add a description so a simple ‘beach with Josh’ will suffice.
30 minutes later josh and I decide we don’t want to get melanoma and food sounds like a good idea. “So subway sounds good!” He hints but We just went to the beach and I’m in an in-n-out kind of mood. “So does in-n-out.” He laughs at my hopeful smile. Not cool man. “Rock paper scissors?” He suggests. I honestly love how childish he is. “Best two out of 3.” I end up winning, no surprise there. “I actually like your decision more.” He says, taking a drink from his coke. “Me too.” I wink because he’s my boyfriend and I can, what of it?!
“I MISS NALA! HURRY! GO!GO!GO! I MISS DRIVER! HURRY!” I chant as I walk behind a josh sized snail. At this, though, he slows down leaning back “OH! GRAVITY IS INCREASING ON ME I CAN’T MOVE!” He thinks he’s being funny and, lets face it, he is. But if I weren’t in mamma bear mode right now and missing my babies I would probably kiss him right here. But since I AM in mamma bear mode I neED TO SEE MY BABIES! “Baaaaabbbyyyyyy” I whine, I hadn’t realize we got to our doors. “Get Nala and come to mine, I gotta take Driver out.” If I didn’t feel dry and gross i would have agreed in a heart beat. “I gotta shower though.” “So shower at mine.” He says with a million dollar smile, and really who would say no to that?! Not me! “Ok” we engage in one more kiss before I open my door and head to my room.
I dump out the contents of my bag so I can pack my special shampoo, brush, clothes etc. I take Nala to her litter box and leave her be while I get a refreshing Arizona iced tea, my favorite kind (Green tea with honey and ginseng.) and by the time I’m ready to go, Nala is mewling at my feet. She’s probably hungry so I grab her bowls, her and head to Josh’s.
I’m in my room playing with Driver when I hear the door open and close. Not too long after Addison and Nala are coming in. “Im staying the night.” He says, as if I didn’t already think the same thing. “I know.” I say, with a shit eating grin on opening my arms gesturing for her to lay with me. “Uhm no I feel gross and probably look just as bad, I’m gonna shower, while you be the best boyfriend and babysit.” She she hands me Nala and bends over so I can kiss her. She tries to pull away after 2 seconds but I hold her face firmly in my hands so I decide when this kiss is over. “Babe” she mumbles, I smile at the attempt. “Babe I need to shower” “ok fine.” I let go of her face and she’s off.
I’m quick to take a shower and brush my teeth because I really just wanna spend time with my nerd herd. I have fallen so easily into some kind of… routine with Josh, Driver and Nala that it feels too natural to stop, like this is how it’s supposed to be. Not a complaint, just an observation. I towel off but realize I left my bag in Josh’s room, oh ok. I wrap the towel really fucking tight around my body so there is no possibility of it falling off (because awk) and go to get my bag.
“Is it my birthday.” Josh jokes, smiling suggestively. “Classy, josh… Really. That how you get all the girls?” I roll my eyes and grab my bag. He just laughs while I change into my blink 182 band T. I opt out of wearing my yoga shorts and just wear my purple boy shorts panties. That’s ok, right? I mean he’s worn his boxers plenty of times so it’s ok…. Yeah…
She comes out wearing a t-shirt and just her underwear. Ok, no.. That’s not ok… Well it is but I’m getting hard.. Think of gross things like… GRAPEFRUIT! God it’s so bitter and smells gross… Yeah that worked. “You gonna lay with me now?” I ask. “Of course baby.” She says, crawling on the bed to lay next to me. Driver at the foot of the bed and Nala on my chest. “A nap sounds really lovely…” I loved the way she used words like that. “…but first…Smiiile.” She pulled out her phone and snapped a picture of the 3 of us. I don’t know why, but the way Addison always wanted to capture the moment really made my heart sing. Yeah, I said ‘made my heart sing’ so what?! “And driver too!” My dog looked up with alert at the saying of his name. Now THIS is lovely.
I decided I wanted to post the pictures on my twitter and Instagram before I went to sleep. You’re welcome fangirls everywhere! Me and Josh dozed off.
I woke up to the greatest feeling on my head, someone running their hands through my hair. And by someone I mean Josh. “Mmmmm” I moaned, leaning into the touch. He stopped at the sound of my awareness. “Please… Don’t stop.” I pleaded groggily. And thank fuck he’s my boyfriend because he simply laughed and continued. “You’re so cute.” He said in a tone that can only be adoring. “Timesit?” I asked. “9 o’clock
, you hungry?” “Yessss.” I mock cried. When was the last time I ran? I’m eating too much. “I can make us something or order something depending on how hungry you are.” He stated. I groaned. Waiting for him to cook me a meal is a really cute thought but I’m hungry.. “Or we can starve.” I turned over so i lay on my back and laughed because yes Josh, I wanna starve. As if my stomach had a say in this it growled, can you say SEXY?! “Im ordering from that pizza place we like, that sound good to you?” He said talking to my stomach. And honestly can he not?! My heart is swelling with too much cute! I giggle and he takes that as a yes looking up at me through his eyelashes and landing a kiss on my stomach before getting his phone and dialing for pizza. I think my heart exploded….
“Pizza will be here within the next half hour which gives me time to shower real quick. If he comes before I’m out, which he won’t, pay with this.” He hands me a $20. “Ok I’m gonna sit on the TV.” I say kissing him. He gives me a perplexed look before responding, “And do what Addison? Watch the couch?” Oh…. I face-palm and sigh so hard I create a tsunami because wow, yeah, sitting on the TV could be a bit convoluted. I laugh nonetheless and Josh kisses my head, off to take his shower.
I shower, brush my teeth and change in record time because Addison can’t be trusted to let me pay. When I walk out into the living-room I see Addison curled up with driver’s head laying on her lap and Nala in her shirt, head poking out the collar. Deciding I really liked this moment I HAD to get a picture. “Nala like it in there?” I ask. “I guess so. She was on my neck earlier and then crawled her way down here, I deemed it too cute to stop her.” I laugh at her explanation. Taking a seat on the floor in front of her.
A few minutes later there is a nock on the door, Addison squeals in delight, jumping off the couch, hands holding Nala secure in her shirt and grabbing the $20 off the table.
“A large pepper-oh” a guy in his late teens says as I open the door. He’s looking me up and down and that’s when I realized I’ve just opened the door in my underwear. “Cute…. Cat.” He winks and please tell me that wasn’t a reference to my vagina… I grab Drivers ball on the table by the door and chuck it at Josh’s head, when I see in my peripheral vision that he’s scowling at me I gesture for him to come to the door and pay for me. Within seconds he’s beside me, having hopped over the couch. “Hey babe..” He kisses my temple. “Oh thanks man here’s a $20, keep the change.” And with that he closes the door. I swear I could hear the guy say ill call you, at which I laugh because how? Even if he got the number from the order it would be Josh’s. “Why did you let me answer the door in my underwear?!” I smack his arm, not even a smack, more like a love tap… Yeah… “It didn’t even register! I’m not used to you in your underwear!” “Fine ill put shorts on.” I start to walk to Josh’s room when he pulls at my waist, bringing out hips together. “Please, please don’t.” His lips are barely brushing mine and yeah this is sexy. “Ok.” I smile and close the gap between our lips. Molding together softly and slowly. My hands are on his biceps and moving ups as the kiss continues, stopping at his hair. We simultaneously part our lips to get access to each others mouths and my stomach growls. We both laugh, not yet parting. Then I feel something cold on my chin. Somehow forgetting I’m still carrying Nala I take her out of my shirt and place her beside Driver.
Dinner is just as amazing as i remeber it and were in bed in the blink of an eye. I’m on my side with Josh curled around me, arms around my waistlovingly. Today was good…. really really good.
This is more of a filler, nothing exciting i know. Sorry Sam, ILYSFM
