I was already in bed by the time Aiden returned to join me.

"It looks like you've gotten comfortable without me,"

"I couldn't resist the temptation, sorry."

"It's alright. I'll come and join you in a second to make you warm," he laughed.

"Is there ever a time when you're not being a smart ass?"

"Aw babe, but it's all part of my charm. It's how I make women fall in love with me."

"Is that what you think?" I said, while giggling.

As much as Aiden put the act on I knew he liked me and only me from the day he saw me with Carter.

Aiden has always made it clear he wanted to be with me but not when I was with another guy.

Once he was in bed though, he pulled me closer to him and I rested my head on his chest.

This felt so right but I couldn't give in even if I wanted to. I would be leaving soon and it wouldn't be fair on anyone, especially when I knew how I would act without him. When I was attached, I fell hard and I knew I was falling for Aiden or maybe I already had and I just didn't want to admit it.

It scared me how right being with Aiden felt. This weekend was one of my last before I'd be leaving for good, which also meant leaving Aiden.

"Aiden look, I just want to make this clear. I want to enjoy your company and be in this moment with you. I still meant what I said earlier with me leaving."

"Shh Savannah, I get it and we can talk about this later, I want to be with you, that hasn't changed and it never will nor will how I feel about you change but I want to enjoy the time I have left with you. God knows when the next time I can talk you into this again will be," he said jokingly while kissing my forehead.

I knew he was hurting and he was putting on an act with me. He wanted more time to convince me that we could work.

"You're so funny and you didn't talk me into this thank you. I wanted this too."

"I know."

"Then shut up and let me enjoy this," I said as I rolled over and placed a kiss on his lips.

He returned the kiss with just as much force before rolling on top of me.

He kissed my neck before whispering in my ear 'round two'.

It was definitely going to be a long night.

The next few days passed by in a flash. We spent most of the day at the beach and the nights either clubbing or around the fire having a few drinks and cooking a barbeque. I preferred just sitting around the fire and drinking truthfully. I wasn't in the headspace for clubbing, I had too much going on upstairs to focus.

Everything felt like it wasn't real and it all was a bit of a blur for me. I knew I would have to face reality soon which meant accepting and facing the fact that I would be leaving soon and my perfect reality would be shattered.

Ultimately, today was the day we were going home which meant another day closer to moving.

I was quite on the way home, once again my mind wandering to thoughts I didn't want to face. I wasn't even with Aiden yet and I already was aching for him.

I think the boys noticed but they never commented on how deep in thought I was or how I didn't seem like I was really there with them. I wasn't with it. They left me alone with my thoughts and I was grateful.
