AJ brought dinner upstairs and found Alissa still asleep. He didn’t want to wake her up but he knew she needed to eat something. Leaning over, he whispered her name into her ear and brushed his lips across her cheek.
Alissa smiled. “If I pretend I’m still asleep, would you do that again?”
AJ laughed and repeated it.
She opened her eyes and saw him standing there with a smile on his face.
“I’ve really missed that smile.” she said sitting up on the bed.
“Well, it’s yours any time you want it Liss.”
He leaned over and kissed her gently.
“Good, I’m going to hold you to that!”
They finished eating and curled up together on the bed to watch a movie. A few minutes into it, Alissa started to yawn.
“Am I boring you?” AJ teased.
She swatted him. “No, I’m probably more tired than I thought that’s all.”
“Why don’t you get some sleep then?”
He stood up and walked over to the door.
Alissa looked at him startled. “Are you leaving?”
“Just to get changed.” he said grinning. “I’ll be back in two minutes.”
He was back about a minute later and crawled into bed next to her. Alissa put her back up against his chest and he wrapped his arms around her. They were both asleep in minutes.
