My eyes open slowly, the bright sunshine from the window blinding me.

Lloyd's arm tightens around me as I move a bit. I turn my head to the side to see Lloyd's eyes fluttering open as well.

"Mm, the ground is sorta comfortable," he murmurs, smiling slightly.

I smile as well and turn completely to face Lloyd. His hair was messy from sleep, hanging over the top of his eyes.

"I slept good too," I say.

Lloyd grins and kisses my forehead. I bury my head into his chest, not wanting to leave. But I know better.

"We should probably go," I say. "Before someone walks in or realizes we're missing."

Lloyd groans. "I don't want to go. Besides, the guys and Nya probably already know and have been waiting for us to come up."

"Probably. But what about Sensei and your mom?"

Lloyd gasps. "My mom! Oh god, I should probably tell her," he says.

I laugh. "I think she already knows about us."

"Do you think Wu knows?" He asks. 

"Definitely," I say.

He sighs. "Then why do we need to go?"

"Because half the city is here as well."

"Shit! I forgot," he says. I laugh.

We stand up and he kisses me quickly. I head for the door, him behind me.

"Wait," Lloyd says. "You go first, and I'll follow in a minute."

"Good idea," I say.

I walk out the door and into the kitchen.

Suddenly, four ninjas and a samurai surround me, looking excited.

"Did you and Lloyd do it?" Nya asks.

"What? No!" I say.

"You sure? You guys were in that room all night," Cole says, nudging me. I roll my eyes.

"We weren't-"

"Oh, shut it," Kai says, interrupting me. "We know you were there, and we covered for you guys," he says.

"You're welcome," Jay sings.

"Hey guys," Lloyd says, walking in. "Uh, what's going on?"

"Just talking about you and El and what you guys did last night," Nya says, nudging Lloyd.

"Uh, we didn't do anything," Lloyd says.

"That's what I told them," I mutter.

"Sure," Nya says.

"Drop it, sis. They said they didn't, and they didn't," Kai says.

"Fine," Nya says. She looks towards me. "You better tell me every detail."

"I don't kiss and tell," I say, crossing my arms.

"You guys kissed?" Cole exclaims.

"Is that really a surprise?" Lloyd says.

"Get some!" Jay shouts.

"Shh!" Lloyd and I say.

"My mom, our Sensei, and the entire city is on board!" Lloyd whispers.

I sigh. "We kissed, we fell asleep. That's it. We good?" I say.

The five look at each other.

"We good."
