I take a big sigh of relief when I finally lay on my bed. It's been too long.
Throughout the 58 years of my life, I not wanted anything more than to return to the safety of my room. I close my eyes and bring my stuffed animal close to my heart. Bring it up to my nose I breathe in the familiar smell. I lay there for a couple of minutes just taking it all in.
Getting up from my position I walk over to my mirror to get a good look at myself. I'm so young, Jesus. Not even legal yet. Not complaining though, could have been worse I guess. I start to strip off the dirty suit that I had on and turn towards my closet. Opening it I'm greeted by the only thing that was left. My old school uniform.
"Shit," I said out loud as I pulled out a set of clothes. I guess I have no other choice. I pulled my skirt up and as if On q, I heard the familiar flash which could only mean one thing. I quickly cover my chest and turn around and see a smirking Five laying down on my bed.
"Um hello?" I said gestured towards my clothes.
"Hello indeed," he said scanning my young body. Putting his hands behind his head in a relaxed position.
"No. Stop it. We are underaged, and your basically a pervert right now" I said Turing around and quickly put on my white dress shirt on.
"So? We're all consenting adults here" he said from his position on my bed. I quickly pull the vest over my shirt and turn around giving him my full attention.
I raised my eyebrow at him crossing my arms over my chest.
"Do I look like a consenting adult to you? " I said with sass Gesturing towards my very 15-year-old body. He only smirked at me before getting up and walking over to me. He put his hand around my waist causing me to look at him with confusion. Five is never affectionate, especially not like this. He only ever did that with Delores. It's always me who reaches for him. He stared into my eyes before pulling me into a hug. Still in shock quickly hug him back putting arms around his now skinny waist.
"I told you I'd bring us home" he whispered to me while holding me even tighter. Reminding me of the promise we made to each other long ago. I nodded my head, not wanting him to hear me crack. Even if everything was shit and soon to be in shit I was glad to be back. Be back in my safe place, in my home. We held each other for what seemed like forever. I never wanted this to end, even though I knew we only had a limited amount of time to I guess to basically save the world. I pulled away taking his hand in mine and pulling him towards my window. As children, we used to do this all the time. Sit by the window and think.
He sat down first gesturing towards me to come towards him. Without a thought I did. I Sat down between his legs and laid my back against his chest. His arms protectively around me.
