funny, little things.

I’m going to shower before I get in there with you and start getting comfy, he says as he rolls back in the desk chair and stands up. okay, I’m going to finish writing while you’re in there. wanna know something funny? she asks as he grabs his towel and reaches for the doorknob. if it’s not actually funny .. naw, I’m just kidding, what is it? he laughs before urging her to continue. you’re mean – she says with a smirk on her face – I’ll tell you when you come back, that way you have to come back. he smiles back at her as he closes the door and heads into the shower.

this is how rainy nights are meant to be spent

you ready to watch this movie? he asks as he climbs into bed beside her. whenever you are, she replies. come here, he says as he lays flat on his back. she grabs the remote and presses play before laying her head on his chest. with her right arm wrapped around him, she scoots in close and he holds her that much tighter throughout the entire film.

this is how rainy nights are meant to be spent.

you ready to get some sleep, he asks as he glances at his phone. 4:06am. holy shit, it’s 4 oclock. yeah, we should get some sleep while we can. the kids will be awake before we know it, she answers. and with that, he turns off the tv and she turns in to him. he kisses her forehead and she kisses his chest.

this is how rainy mornings are meant to be spent.

she sneaks out of his grasp and quietly goes to use the bathroom. you okay , he asks as she climbs back into bed. mhm, she moans softly as she reaches for the blanket to pull back over her body. gently turning onto his left side, he lays his arm across the pillow, inviting her to come back to the place she was before.

this is how rainy mornings are meant to be spent.

they both open their eyes as the first rays of morning light creeps through the window. both kids are still asleep and they can squeeze in a few more minutes of rest. still laying on his left side, he wraps both arms around her. goodnight, he whispers as he pulls her in close; goodmorning, she utters softly in return as she rests both hands on the arms that hold her. both of them, he concludes, and they share one light chuckle before succumbing to the slumber once more.

this is how rainy mornings are meant to be spent.

footsteps echo in the stairway outside the door, the little humans are awake. they’ve repositioned during their sleep but she’s still laying on his right arm and feels him tighten his embrace as he hugs her and plants the softest kiss atop her head. she glances up at him, his eyes still closed, and reciprocates the affection with a line of kisses across his chest. she looks at her watch, 10:49am, and they prepare to get the day started. he peeks through the blinds and sees the rain, oh yeah, it’s raining outside. this is going to be a ‘write all day’ kind of day. you wanna do that? work on the guardian book? she laughs, and he looks at her quizzically. wanna hear something funny? almost instantly, she regrets her words as he laughs and says, if it’s not actually funny .. I’m joking, I’m joking. what is it? she rolls her eyes and continues. last night after you asked me if I was ready to sleep and we agreed we should, you pulled me in close and closed your eyes. but I just knew you weren’t asleep yet so I asked if we could spend the day writing. you were quiet and that’s when I realized you had fallen asleep in those 2 seconds of silence. the look on his face let’s her know he’s about to say something that is meant to playfully annoy her. oh I wasn’t sleeping, I heard you — just kidding. laughter erupts between the two of them and they share one last kiss before pulling out their laptops.

this is how rainy days are meant to be spent.

I have had a million and one stories to tell, but was quieted by my fear. Time to break my silence.
