Waking up to the sound of banging on the door— and nonstop ringing— is the most least pleasant thing in the world. Especially when you have a hangover that can put Lindsay Lohan's to shame. That too, paired with panic from past traumatic experiences.

Grumbling, I rolled out of bed— ready to drag my feet out of my room before stopping abruptly at my appearance in the parallel mirror.

"I'm coming!" I yelled out hoarsely, hoping whoever was making the ruckus heard me.

I ambled into the washroom, shoving off my costume and pulling on one of his discarded tees.

Using some cleanser, I splashed lukewarm water on my face, wiping off the makeup residue in one go. I gurgled some mouthwash hurriedly, spitting it out as it started burning.

I let my hair be, leaving it in it's messy wavy locks, tugging down the shirt to cover my underwear clad ass, and trudged out of my bedroom.

The ringing had lessened, but the occasional hit against the door continued as I made my way to it.

I yanked it open, annoyed, "Wha—"

An end to wh— memories of last night rushed through my mind.

I responded reactively— pouring my anger, hurt, and want into the kiss. I wrapped my arms around his neck, raising on my toes.

And we continued until I couldn't breathe.

I pulled back, breathing harshly, "You're not gonna run away again are you?" I asked accusingly.

He tugged me to him, "No — fucking — way." He said between kisses.

I nodded, pulling away slightly and leaning my forehead against his chest, listening to his frantic heartbeat.

A moment passed before I smiled against it, enjoying the heavy beating.

He bumped his chin on my head, groaning, "I can feel you smiling."

I threw my head back, laughing lightly.

He grinned down at me, "Fuck off, I was— am, nervous."

I was about to reply but I yawned instead. What time is it, there's barely any light out.

"Bane, what time is it?" I asked with narrowed eyes.

He rubbed the back of his neck sheepishly, "Uh, it's around 7am..."

"Seriously!" I exclaimed, "You couldn't have waited, oh I don't know, four more hours?"
