I sighed and stretched as I rolled over in my bed. Beau was still asleep and we were both still naked. I slowly swung my legs over the side of my bed and stood up. As I started walking, the pain kicked in.

“Oh fuck.” I whispered. I laid back down just as Beau woke up.

“Hey baby.” he smiled.

“Hi.” I said, trying to hide my pain.

He sat up and looked at me strangely. Then it hit him. He smiled as he held in a laugh.

“It’s not funny.” I sighed.

“Sorry baby.” He giggled, “Do you want anything?”

“Painkillers.” I said.

Beau snorted with laughter and I punched him in the arm.

“Oww!” he groaned.

“That’s nothing compared to what I’m feeling.” I replied.

He bit his lip to hold in a laugh. My phone started ringing, so Beau climbed up to get it. He passed it to me.

“Hello?” I answered.

“Hey Lu, it’s mum. Are you alright?” mum asked.

“Um, yeah, I’m fine. What about you?” I replied.

“You don’t sound too sure about that.” She chuckled. “I’m fine, I just wanted to call you before I went to work.”

“I’m just hurting a bit.” I said quietly. “But I’m fine. Have a good day at work mum.”

Mum laughed. “Oh dear. Well I've got to go now; I’ll see you later, bye babe.”

“Bye mum.” I said as I hung up.

I put the phone on the bed next to me and Beau kissed me on the lips. He moved my hair out of the way and gasped.

“What?” I asked, feeling scared.

“Uhm… You’ve got quite a lot of love bites baby…” he said.

“So have you.” I giggled. 

I was lying on the sofa watching TV. Beau had left about 30 minutes ago to get some movies and sweets for me. Someone knocked at the front door, so I hobbled over to answer it. I opened the door, and the twins, James and Daniel were stood there.

“We thought we should check how you are?” Luke giggled.

“I’m fine.” I said. “Are you coming in or not?”

They all walked in and sat down on the sofas. I tried to walk as normally as I could, but it really wasn’t working. They all sniggered at me as I flopped down next to Jai.

“Wow, you’re lucky!” Jai said.

“What do you mean?” I asked.

“Beau gave you two necklaces!” he laughed as he pointed at my love bites. The rest of the boys joined in with the laughter as I shook my head. There was another knock at the door, so I looked around at boys and said; “Can one of you get that please?”

James laughed and walked over to the door. It was Beau.

“I didn’t know you lot were coming over?” he said.

“Neither did I.” I said. “But you can stay if you want.”

Beau put the DVD on and came and sat next to me. I curled up against him as he hugged me.

“Are you ok?” he whispered.

I nodded and he kissed my forehead.

“Lu, I’m home!” mum called as she walked through the front door.

“Hey mum!” I replied.

“Oh hi guys, I didn’t know you were here.” She smiled at the boys.

“Yeah, we came round to check on Lullah and we ended up staying.” Luke said.

“I see.” She said. “Lullah, can I have a word?” she beckoned me with her finger.

I winced as I tried to stand up, and everyone started laughing.

“Seriously?” I sighed.

“Ignore them babe.” Beau said as he got up to help me.

Mum led me into the kitchen.

 “Are you ok?” she asked.

I sighed. “Yeah, I’m fine.”

“Your neck looks like a crime scene. Actually, so does Beau’s.” she chuckled.

I blushed and hung my head.

“What did you do last night?” she questioned.

“I’m pretty sure you’ve already guessed.” I said.

“Well did you use a condom?” she asked.

“Yes.” I answered.

“Good.” She smiled. “You can go back now.”

I stumbled back to the living room and sat next to Beau.

“Everything ok?” he asked.

“Yeah.” I replied. “I’m going to bed now guys, see you tomorrow?”

 A combination of “yeah” and “ok” came as a response and I walked towards the stairs. Beau followed me and took my hand.

“Are you ok?” he asked when we reached my room.

“Yeah I’m fine. Just sore and tired.” I replied.

“I’m so sorry princess.” He said as he wrapped his arms around me.

“It doesn’t matter.” I said as I let go and got into bed. He sat down next to me and kissed me softly.

“I love you Tallulah.” he whispered.

“I love you too.” I whispered back.
