Camryn's POV

I wake up to the sound of birds, which is weird because it's December, but then I realize it's Colton whistling in his sleep. He looks so peaceful I want to lean over and kiss him, but I decide to let him sleep.

I slowly climb out of bed and make my way to my bathroom. I feel weird as I walk and hope the soreness goes away after a warm shower. I turn the shower on and as I wait for the water to warm up, I look at myself in the mirror. I look... good? My dark circles are gone and there's color back in my cheeks. I look completely different than how I was this past week. Even my hair looks fuller and I haven't even washed it yet.

I know people say you feel different after losing your V-card, but I wasn't expecting to look different, to look alive. As for my feelings? All I can notice now is how I haven't stopped smiling. I didn't think it was possible to love that boy anymore than I did, but connecting on that level proved me wrong.

I step into the warm shower and begin to wash my hair and smile, it's as if I can still feel Colton gently tugging on it. I wash my body and can still feel Colton's hands touching and kissing every inch of me. I turn the water to cold because right now, my body is on fire.

When I finish washing up, I wrap a towel around my body, walking back into my room for some clothes. Colton's lying on his back with his hands behind his head looking right at me.

"Good morning," he smiles his big cheeky smile, the one that I love.

"Good morning," I say back, blushing for some reason. He's starring at me with his hazel eyes, messy hair and perfect looking face, I suddenly feel shy.

I hold onto my towel tightly and make my way to my nightstand to get underwear. Before I can open the drawer, Colton grabs me by my waist and pulls me onto the bed with him, somehow getting me underneath him.

I let out a scream before he and I start laughing like maniacs. "What are you doing?!" I laugh looking up at him.

"Hey, I'm just trying to kiss my girlfriend good morning," he says, kissing my cheek, then my chin, my neck, my collar bone. "What are you doing?" He asks between his kisses.

"I was...um," I stutter, my head clouded by his actions. "Just trying to get dressed," I get out. He continues to kiss my chest, but then stops when he reaches the top of my towel. What? Why is he stopping?!

"Sorry to interrupt," he smirks as he rolls off of me. What a tease. I get up and grab my underwear and start walking back to my bathroom. "Where are you going?" He asks.

"Er, to change?" I say confused.

"You know you can change in front of me," he laughs. I'm about to say no and go into the bathroom, but then decide I can be a tease too.

"Fine," I say, dropping my towel in front of him. His eyes go wide and he sits up. I laugh to myself because he didn't think I'd do it.

I slowly slip on my underwear, then my bra as Colton gets up from the bed. "You drive me crazy, you know that right?" He says, dipping his head down into my neck.

"Yes, now go shower you horndog, we have things to do today," I laugh and Colton groans as he goes into the bathroom to wash up.

"These pancakes are amazing," I say as I slip another bite into my mouth.

"Guess you worked up quite an appetite last night huh?" Colton smirks and I kick him underneath the booth. It's Saturday morning and Denny's is packed, but I'm just happy I have my food.

"So," I say, wiping my mouth with a napkin, "last night you were telling me about your mom and her family." Colton raises his brow at me. "I was just wondering where you are on that subject."

"If you're asking me if I'm going to live with her, I still don't know Camryn. It's a big deal, I just don't know," he says and I nod. I'm just anxious to know if he's actually going to leave or not. "But you know what I have been thinking about?" This time it's me who raises my brow. "I think it's time to meet we go see your parents."

My mouth falls open slightly because it seems so out of the blue, but is it really? "What makes you say that?" I ask.

"I don't know, I just think since you want to, we should just say fuck it and go do it. I know you want to Cam," he says, reaching over the table to grab my hand.

"Where is this coming from?" I ask him, laughing slightly by how excited he seems to go with me.

"I don't know, I mean, I never wanted to see my mom again, but it ended up being good to see her, maybe that's how it'll be for you," he smiles slightly.

I start to think about it. I've been wanting this for a while, so why not now? Why not put all my questions to rest?

"Alright, lets go," I agree, standing up from our booth.

"Wait, right now?" He asks.

"Yes, why not? Last night was great so why not try and make today great? Like you said, lets just go," I say as my heart begins to race.

"Fuck it, lets go today," he agrees, leaving money on the table before heading outside to my car.
