(Y/n)'s POV:

  Oh...fuck. I wake up to a sharp pain in my lower abdomen. Must be that time of the month again. I roll my eyes and roll out of bed.  I head to the bathroom to do my business, then I put a pair of clean clothes on.

"Millie, is there any cereal left?"

"Um... I don't think so, but you can check." She says before continuing to read her novel.

I open the cabinet, hoping to find a box of (your favorite cereal) only to find nothing. My cellphone rings.


"Hi there love, are you okay?" I hear Campbell's comforting voice say.

  "Yes, I'm okay. Um... do you have any ibuprofen?"

"Yeah. Why? What's wrong? Are you hurt?"

"No, I'm fine."


"Yeah." I say quietly, feeling a bit embarrassed.

"Don't worry love, it's nothing to feel embarrassed about. Do you want me to come over?"

"If it's no trouble."

" of course not peanut."

*ten minutes l8r*

    I open the door to find Campbell holding a plastic shopping bag.

"Hey Campbell." I say before embracing him with open arms. "What's that?" I say referring to the bag.

"Oh nothing, just some ibuprofen, (your favorite movie), and (your favorite candy)."

"Sweetheart, you didn't have to buy me all of that."

"It's okay love."

He grabs my face and begins kissing me. It felt good to have his lips on mine again. We get interrupted by the sound of Millie clearing her throat. I turn around to find my curly-haired roommate looking up from her novel. The dark circles under her eyes implied that she hadn't slept for awhile.

"Can you guys please make out somewhere else."
I playfully roll my eyes at her. "Okay, Okay."

She smiles at me.

"Campbell you can go to my room and I'll meet you there." I say pointing to my bedroom door.

Millie gives me the "oh-I-see-what's-going-on" smirk.

"Oh stop it, we are just going to watch a movie. Besides, I wouldn't even stop to think of going there when I'm on my you know what."

She laughs before returning to her book.

I walk in to find Campbell on my bed with a blanket wrapped around him.

"Awe, your shivering."

"(Y/n) why is it so cold in here."

"I guess I forgot to turn on the heater this morning." I say rubbing my arms for friction.

I grab my laptop and put the dvd in it. I sit it on the end of the bed and sit beside Campbell.

"Come here." He says before grabbing me and wrapping some of the blanket around me.

Halfway through the movie, Campbell begins to kiss me as he wraps his arms around my torso. He moves his lips down my collar bone and begins sucking then he gently bites the skin. Okay? I run my fingers through his hair and kiss his cheek.

He plants a kiss before kissing my other collar bone. Then he begins sucking again. Why is he sucking?

When he finishes sucking,he plants another kiss.

"I'll be back, I have to go to the bathroom," I say.

I close the bathroom door behind me and lower my shirt to reveal two purple bruises on my collar bones. What the hell?

I return to my room and sit beside Campbell.


"Yes love?"

" Why are there purple marks on my collar bones?"

He chuckles, "(Y/n) they're bruises. They're called love bites. I'm sorry, I thought you were okay with it."

"Yeah, it's okay."

He kisses my forehead, we lay down next to each other with my head rested in his chest and his arm around me.

" (y/n)"


"I..I think I'm in love with you."

I don't respond. My brain was still trying to process what he had just said.

"I'm sorry if this seems fast but I am utterly and truly in love with you. It's okay if you don't feel the same way, but I just had to tell you."



" I love you too."

He pulled out his phone and earbuds. He gave me one as he played the same song he played at my 18th birthday.
