Kayleigh's pov

He arrives here about twenty minutes later. I open the door for him and seeing his face makes my eyes start to water. He shuts the door behind him and pulls me into him, my head buried in his chest. The familiar smell of his cologne is comforting and I lean my head up to look at his face. He leans his forehead down to meet mine. "How are you?" he whispers and kisses me on the forehead.

We go to sit on the couch and I sit cross legged beside him. "I'm sad," Shawn puts his hand on my thigh and moves his thumb in a circle. "A week ago he was sitting right here, it's just hard for me to digest that I'll never see him again."

"I'm sorry I wasn't here. I really wish I could've been there for you. I lean my head on his arm and lace my fingers through his. Shawn gets up a few minutes later and starts to make supper for the two of us. I eat a few bites however I still don't have much of an appetite. He runs his hand down my back as he takes my plate and washes the dishes.

I go to the bathroom and run hot water into the bath. I climb in and call out to Shawn. He's standing in the door frame a few seconds later, "Yes?"

"Wanna come in?" I ask with a smirk on my face hoping he says yes.

He takes off his shirt first and then everything else. I lift my back up so he can sit against the jacuzzi wall and I lean against him. I feel safe and comfortable with him behind me. He starts to trace a line up and down my thigh and I turn my head to look at him. His gorgeous hair flops in his eyes and I turn around more so that my lips can meet his.

I turn around completely now, my legs on either side of him. I put my hand on the back of his neck and and we start to make out. He puts his hand firmly on my lower back and pulls me against him. I slip my tongue into his mouth exploring for a minute before moving my lips down his neck. 

We get out of the bath and and I wrap a towel loosely across my chest and Shawn wraps one around his waist. He takes my hand and leads me into my room. Shawn starts to kiss me again, both hands cupping my face. He then moves one hand down to my back and lays me down on the bed. He lays down on top of me straddling one of my legs and I wrap my other leg around his and pull him in tight to me. "Kayleigh," Shawn says between kisses. "Are you sure you want to do this right now?" I sit up and look at him. "You're just in a vulnerable state, I wouldn't want to take advantage of that."

"Yeah, you're probably right." I adjust my towel and lay down beside him on the bed. A few minutes later I go put on a baggy shirt and hop back into bed. I place my head in the crook of Shawn's neck and jaw. I stay that way until I fall asleep to the feeling of Shawn running his fingers up and down my arm.


Shawn's pov

I wake up with Kayleigh cuddled beside me. She just constantly seems so sad which hurts me to see. I don't know what I would do if I were in her position, I would be so destroyed. I look at her cheeks and eyes and admire them. I think I'm falling for this girl which scares me. I haven't felt this strongly for someone since Lauren and look how that turned out. 

She couldn't handle me being away all the time and the constant paparazzi, and I don't blame her. I wouldn't choose that part of this life either. 

My phone starts to ring and I rush to answer it before Kay wakes up. "Hello?" I whisper and sneak out of the room and shut the door a little behind me. 

"Hey man," Brian says from the other line. "How's Kayleigh? Sara told me about her friend."

"She's not doing very well, she;s taking it really hard."

"Well tell her I say hi, and that I'm sorry. But listen, there's a party tonight that we need to go to, it's going to be unreal."

"Okay, yeah. Where is it?" I'm worried about Kayleigh, but I'm sure she'll be okay for one night. Who knows, maybe she'll even want to come with us. 

"I'll send you the address, it's at some guys house. Come at around ten."

"Okay, I'll see you then." I hang up and go back to Kayleigh's room. I don't want her waking up alone so I lay down beside her. I close my eyes again and end up falling asleep.
