I woke up with a fuzzy head. My eyes were sensitive to the light and I could feel a headache creeping in the back of my skull.
I let out of a sigh slowly and last night's events flashed before my eyes. I glanced down and saw Erin resting her head on my chest. Our legs were tangled together and he arms were wrapped around my waist. From the corner of my eyes I saw our clothes all over the floor and we managed to knock over the bedside lamp and I recall hearing the bed creaking under us.
"Oh shit" I muttered as everything came back to me. This wasn't meant to happen especially with Erin's past with a former boyfriend.
Erin stirred in her sleep and she slowly opened her unfocused eyes. She blinked a couple of times, her lashes tickling me. She looked up and met my eyes
"Morning" I said carefully measuring my tone. She smiled and as the realisation hit her, her eyes widened and swore under her breath.
"Morning" she echoed as the colours rushed up to her face. I smiled and kissed her on the forehead. She seemed to relax and snuggled back into me. Silence developed over us and gave us a chance to think about what just happened.
"What are we going to do today." she said clearing her throat.
"Anything you want, babe."
"Let's just stay in bed for a while" she said as she lifted her head and gave me a kiss.
It was nearly noon by the time we emerged out our room. Erin called her grandparents and they insisted we should come over for tea. I nodded at her encouragingly to tell her that I didn't mind to drive over for tea.
Erin smiled apologetically and she just agreed to her grandparents' wishes.
It took a little less than two hours to arrive at her grandparents' place. Her grandmother, Anne, came bursting out of the house and brought us into a bone crushing hugs.
She assured us in and the house smelt of the sweet aroma of food. Her grandfather, Joe, seemed really interested about my Olympic experience and my diving career. I tried to answer them as politely as possible and tried not to act awkwardly around Erin and her grandparents especially what happened last night.
We spent a few more hours at Erin's place before we had to go back to the BnB.
We woke up the day after quite early and as Erin fixed everything upstairs I went down and paid up.
"How was your stay?" the owner asked politely.
"It was lovely, thank you. It was my first time up here before and I really enjoyed it." I smiled politely at her
"That's good to hear. Hopefully your girlfriend enjoyed it too?"
"I'm sure she did. We had so much fun, hopefully we'll be back soon." I replied as Erin emerged from the top of the stairs carrying out bags. I nodded politely at the owner before walking up the stairs, taking two steps at a time and take out bags into the car. Erin trailed behind me before talking politely to the owner as both made their way outside.
"Thank you." Erin smiled as she got into the car and the lady just waved enthusiastically.
The drive back down to Plymouth went as smooth as the drive out of it. We stopped a couple of times to stretch our legs but silence in the car was comfortable. It was about 9ish at night by the time we got to Erin's place.
Erin didn't even managed to get out of the car when Taylor came running out of the house and leant her head into the car.
"E! We missed you!" she chirped
"Well hello to you too, Taylor" I said in jest pretending to be hurt by being ignored.
"I hope you two behaved yourselves" Taylor laughed and wiggled her eyebrows suggestively.
"Get your head out of the gutter, Taylor" Erin blushed slightly
"Well behaved. I did fall into a lake though..." I laughed to direct the attention to me and not on Erin's blushing face
"How did you manage that?" Taylor giggled
"I thought I was the King of the World. But, that's a story for another time..." I replied
"Aww come on, Tommy! You can't leave me hanging like this" she exclaimed.
"I'm afraid I have to. I've got an early start tomorrow" I said sincerely.
"I must let you go. I'll see you tomorrow?" Erin smiled at me sending glimmers into her eyes and bringing out her cute dimples.
"I'll call you when I finish. I have a feeling Andy is going to make me do a long session." I informed her as I kissed her on the cheeks.
