As I finished the last few chips in the packet, I get a text. My heart jumps as I quickly turn the phone over in excitement. Oh it's just Georgia I thought to myself as I read the text. "It's Sunday tomorrow wanna go out?"

I opened my phone and replied, telling her I was gonna do something that day. I grabbed the rubbish and skipped downstairs. My mood had already changed due to the chocolate and chips.As I put everything in the bin I sit on the couch and open Leo's messages, and sit in silence as I think of something to say. "Can you meet me at the park? We need to talk." As I sent that I got a text back from him. "ok."

LEO'S POV

I got a text from y/n and looked at it for a few minutes, as I tried my hardest to fight back the urgent tears that were about to fall. "What are you looking at?" Charlie asked as he attempts to look over my shoulder.

I turn my phone off before he can read it. "y/n texted me, she asked if we could meet at the park. I don't think I'm gonna go. "Noooo, you need to go bro!" Charlie said, as I fiddle with my phone.

"Look she's not perfect. You aren't either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if she can make you smile at least once whenever you think of her then maybe she's the right one for you. Just hear her out." Hearing his words made me wonder if I still loved her. I miss her like crazy.

Y/N'S POV

As I put on my hoodie, I put headphones in my ears and leave the house, remembering to lock it as I left. I listened to Put ü first the whole way there and sat down at a near by bench. As I waited for Leo to come.

LEO'S POV

As I walk up the small hill to the park I see y/n sitting at a bench, my heart breaks into a million pieces. She looks like an angel from here. I look down to my feet with my hands in my pocket and take a deep breath. The thoughts in my head telling me I couldn't do it only made it worse.

I walked up to her and looked at her face, she looks sad but it doesn't look like she's been crying. "Hey" I said sitting down beside her. "Hey" she said breathing heavily. She's not even looking at me. I look down and close my eyes.

"Look Leo, that night at the movies when Tanner kissed me" she stopped and took a deep breath. "I didn't even know it was him. I didn't know he was gonna do it. And I didn't want it to happen. I'm truly sorry about anything that happened, ever since that night at the party I haven't been myself. I've just missed you like crazy. From the corner of my eye I see her turn and look at me. I look up and give her a weak smile. Making her look away again.

As I looked at her, I had this sudden urge to hug her. Seeing her upset like this was my weakness. I looked at the floor again and inhaled a few times.

"I'm sorry" I blurted out. "Oliva was behind it all, she doesn't want us to be together so she has been planning a way to break us up." I let all my emotions go and started crying helplessly. "I missed you like crazy." I managed to say through my sobbing.

All of a sudden, I felt a warm embrace and at that moment I knew everything would be okay.

Silence.

Silence.

Silence.

"From now on I don't want you to trust a word Oliva or Mia says about me and I will do the same." I said "y/n" I exhaled deeply as I looked into her sparkling eyes. "Will you be my girlfriend again? I haven't been able to sleep at night with the thought of you not being mine."

Y/N'S POV

I gazed into his dark brown eyes. I lifted my right hand and cupped his face, wiping the tears left on his check. "Yes Leo, of course I will be your girlfriend again." I giggled. We hugged each other like our lives depended on it.

He was my happiness. He was the person that I wanted to grow old with. This time Olivia is never going to get in my way.

I woke up to the sun shining brightly through my bedroom window. I groaned in annoyance as I slowly opened my eyes, adjusting to the now lit room.

I felt a heavy weight across my waist. I turned around and saw him. He was so cute when he slept. Last night at the park, Leo and I walked back to my place. I told him to stay so he stayed. I want to try and gain the trust that we lost.

I continued to watch him as he slept peacefully in my bed. I felt safe in his arms. I felt as if nothing bad was going to happen. His fluffy brown hair in a mess across his forehead. His mouth that was partly open, as he breathed in and out softly. His dark eye lashes.

I was so deep in my thought about Leo's features that I didn't even know that he woke up. "Take a picture, it will last longer" he said in his raspy voice as he smirked. "I should" I shot back as I giggled. It was only Sunday and I wanted to spend this day with Leo.

"Come on let's get ready" I said to Leo as I got out of bed. I felt a strong pull against my arm. I looked over to see what it was. It was Leo. "Come back to bed for a bit and cuddle me" he replied pouting. I checked the time. It was 7:21am. "Fine" I said grinning. "Only for a bit" I added as I jumped back into bed with Leo and shut my eyes.

He wrapped his arm around my waist and kissed the back of my neck.

I missed this.
