X - eXcitement (Yes, I'm cheating a little! :p)
It was raining. Again. It had hardly stopped the whole time we’d been in Cornwall, and this time it had woken me up at 5am, beating against the windows. Leah was still fast asleep, cuddled into my side, her arm across my chest.
The first time she fell asleep beside me, I didn’t think it would ever happen again, but now I got to wake up beside her every day.
I should have known after the first time how much Leah meant to me. I never fell asleep with any woman after a one night stand. I waited for the woman to fall asleep then got the hell out of there. I didn’t want to leave Leah. That moment I realised I didn’t want to rush to get away from her after I got what I wanted was scary. Because I hadn’t got what I wanted from her. One night wasn’t enough.
Screwing around was… it was fun for a while. Leah gave me a different kind of excitement. The kind that made me want to stay around to find out where we were headed instead of looking for something else.
