Come What May, Pt. 8
I wake up after getting only two hours of sleep, to find Peter propped up on his elbow, staring at me. “I love youâ?, he says, leaning in to kiss me. “I love you moreâ?, I respond. I sit up in bed, rubbing my eyes. “We’re still in Lisbon, right?â? I jokingly ask Peter, my voice still husky with tiredness. I really need to get more sleep. I don’t think Peter will let me.
“Oh baby, I’m sooo tired. You’ve really got to let me get more sleepâ?, I say to him, leaning into his shoulder. He laughs. “I’ll tryâ?. He gets out of bed and heads for the bathroom. As he heads through the door, I hear him mutter “not very hardâ?, before laughing to himself and shutting the door. I run my fingers through my hair, and sit in bed, looking around the room. I get up, leave our hotel room and walk down the hall to Oliver’s room. I knock, and a few seconds later, the door cracks open. Oliver’s blue eyes peer through the crack at me, and he opens it the rest of the way to let me in.
