WATCH OUT FOR THE POV CHANGE AFTER A COUPLE OF PAGES!!!
“Momma,” A voice said quietly. What the hell? “Momma.”
It suddenly dawned on me that I was at Rosie’s apartment and that her body was practically on top of mine. Her face in the crook of my neck, her arm and leg slung over me, and damn was it comfortable!
I felt her move and I glanced in the direction of the voice, I could barely see from the light of the alarm clock but I could just make out DJ standing by the side of the bed, clutching woody to his chest.
“Hey Baby, what’s up?” Rosie whispered, moving off of me carefully.
“I had a bad dream,” DJ answered, sniffing loudly.
“Shh Baby, Nate’s sleeping. What was your dream about?” Rosie whispered as she moved to sit on the side of the bed, rubbing her hand over her face. She was so freaking adorable, she was trying not to wake me, that’s sweet!
“Bad guys came in and got us,” DJ answered as he started to cry again. I frowned, wow that was a bad nightmare for a four year old!
“It’s ok baby, no bad guys will come in here, you don’t need to worry about that. Come on let’s get you back to bed,” Rosie whispered, standing up and taking his hand.
I sat up too so she would know she didn’t need to worry about being quiet and waking me, she glanced over her shoulder, smiling at me apologetically as DJ started to wail and threw himself at her, wrapping his arms around her legs.
“I don’t want to sleep on my own, Momma, I’m scared. Can I sleep in here with you?” he asked through his sobs.
I flicked the bedside light on so she could see better, she was rubbing his back and looked sexy as hell in the little booty shorts and tank top pyjamas she was wearing. Damn, my girl is hot! Even with the wild bed hair she still looked beautiful.
“You can’t DJ, Nate’s here tonight. You’ll have to sleep in your own bed,” she said softly. He clutched her tighter as his breathing started to hitch where he was sobbing so hard.
“I’m scared to sleep on my own, Momma!” he cried.
$hit, I felt like an ass, I was totally screwing this up for him and probably making Rosie wish that she hadn’t said I could stay. This was the kind of thing that she didn’t want to happen, and I didn’t either, I didn’t want to come between them or take her away from him somehow. He was and would always be, her first priority and I understood and accepted that, I wouldn’t want it any other way.
“It’s ok, I’ll go and just come back in the morning,” I suggested, as I climbed out of the other side of the bed and grabbed my jeans, pulling them on quickly.
Rosie turned back to look at me, she looked a little torn so I smiled as I pulled my t-shirt over my head, letting her know it was ok.
“Nate, it’s ok you can stay in here, I’ll just sleep in with DJ,” she suggested, looking at me pleadingly. She was probably worried about me driving home at two in the morning knowing her, she knew I was tired from working.
I walked up and kissed her forehead softly, I didn’t really want to go and leave her because this was only our second night together, but DJ came first. “It’s ok, I promise.” I smiled and held a hand down to DJ, “Slap me a high five, Kid.” He grinned and immediately went to slap my hand but I moved it away quickly so he missed. “Too slow kiddo.” I laughed as I ruffled his hair, making him smile through his tears. I smiled and winked at Rosie one last time and walked past to the door.
She gripped my hand making me stop, she was looking at me pleadingly. “Don’t go,” she whispered, giving me the puppy dog face.
“Rose, it’s ok I know you have priorities and I accept that. You do what you need to do and I’ll come back around nine.” I squeezed her hand a little, reassuring her that I honestly didn’t mind. Maybe she thought I was leaving because I was annoyed at being woken up or something; it was crazy how this girl’s brain worked sometimes so it wouldn’t surprise me if that’s what she was thinking.
