The Following Morning

I was incredibly comfortable when I woke up having Spencer’s arm draped over my waist, I had missed waking up like this and as much as I knew after last night there were still concerns on my end when it comes to our fucked up relationship, it didn’t change the fact that I missed him a lot.

I had no idea if Spencer was awake and I knew if I rolled over to find out I would wake him if he was asleep, I could never sneak out of the bed when he was asleep, I would always wake him and I hated it because he could successfully sneak out of the bed without waking me.

Except the moment between the two of us was ruined by the sound of my phone ringing, I heard Spencer groan before burying his head in between my back and the pillow, I guess that answers my question, he was asleep.

I carefully pulled away from him to grab my phone and slip out of the room to answer it and allow him get some more sleep but looking at the caller ID I couldn’t help but laugh causing Spencer too shoot a look at me, he never was a morning person.

“Well hello Jeremy, I believe you’re returning my phone call and messages a few days late” I curled up on the couch pulling the throw blanket around my shoulders.

“Dri let me explain…”

“Explain what? You’re engaged? Yeah I figured that one out last night, I wasn’t even comfortable going out on that first date but yet you made it comfortable, so you cheating on your fiancé is all on you”


“No you just want to appease your guilt, if you feel guilty explain everything to your fiancé because I don’t give a shit”

“What about you Dri, you told me that your ex-boyfriend was in London, that didn’t look like London last night”

“You don’t know anything Jeremy, if you must know he flew out to surprise me for my birthday so again I say, if you feel guilty explain it to your fucking fiancé because I don’t care but if I do come across her at some stage, I will tell her” I threatened before hanging up on him.

I sat there on the couch for a few moments trying to calm down knowing if I went back to bed in a bad mood it would just cause more problems with Spencer and I didn’t want to fight with Spencer not knowing when he was leaving because for all I knew it was today.

I stopped in the doorway at the sight of Spencer, he was laying on his stomach sprawled out on the bed, it was something he automatically did once I got out of the bed. He said it was something that he preferred when he was alone in the bed. I smiled before heading over and pushing him over so I could lay back down.

I was surprised at how easy it was for Spencer to move and curl up beside me, normally if he had fallen asleep it took a bit for him to budge.

“Everything alright?” Spencer questioned huskily and it took me a moment to reply trying to push aside all the memories I had of him speaking in that tone.

“Yeah just the douchebag trying to appease his guilt but I told him I didn’t care and to tell his fiancé if he’s feeling so guilty”

“Good for you, I’m kind of glad Alec ruined that date for you. I don’t want you to end up in that situation”

“Me either, how long are you here for this time?”

“A week” he spoke before nuzzling my neck, I was shocked. He’s only been able to come out once and it was because he took off for the weekend to check on me but this, this was different he was able to be here for the week.

I rolled over and looked at him, he must have realised my shocked because he laughed softly before kissing me. “I told you last night, happy birthday”

“Oh so that’s all I get, you?” I smirked at him and he frowned at me.

“Not at all but it can wait” he spoke softly but when I looked at him carefully he was looking at me like he wanted to ask me something, I knew him well enough to know what he looked like when he wanted to ask something but was worried about my reaction.

“Just ask it Spence” I pulled away from him so I could get a better look at him but all he did was take a deep breath and scrubbed his face with his hands.

“This isn’t the time for it Dri, let’s just enjoy this moment and the time we have before I leave next week”

“No, there is obviously something you want to ask so just ask it” I snapped at him before sitting up and glaring at him.

“Fine, I was just thinking about this moment and how much like it was before I made the worst decision of my life and then this whole thing with that guy you went on a couple of dates with and him being engaged made me wonder if we would be engaged” I stared at him, I couldn’t believe he was thinking this.

After getting over my shock I shook my head at him, “you’re fucking insane Spencer” I growled at him before climbing out of the bed and heading towards the bathroom to shower.

I wasn’t alone for long before Spencer joined me and before I could even protest to him joining me I was pinned against the wall with his hand over my mouth to prevent me from talking. This brought back so memories from the past but it was all pushed aside by the look on his face and the fact that I had called him insane.

“You’re going to listen to what I have to say” he ordered and I nodded and he slowly removed his hand from my mouth.

“I just said last night that I love you, we’ve also made jokes about me almost being 30 so yes marriage is something I’ve thought about. I want to marry you and spend the rest of my life with you, you only and I meant it when I said last night that I will do everything in my power to show you just how much you mean to me because I don’t want to lose you. I just said it Dri and I will again, I want to marry you, I want to start a family with you. I want the whole house with kids, a dog and the stupid bloody white picket fence. Tell me now if you don’t want to marry me…”

I stared at Spencer not completely sure if this strange argument ended up with him proposing to me.


  1. Ummm....I think I need a bonus post - like now!! ;) I need to know her reaction and what she says and if he gives her that ring. This is one heck of cliff hanger. :)

  2. Loved it! There's just something about a man getting serious, especially while naked, that melts you!
