For Keeps

“You’ll be okay, sugar cakes. You’re such a smart girl, don’t give up; hold on for me. I know what you’re feeling, baby girl. Just remember that although you may be smart, you’re also an over thinker, you’re the insecure one, the different one. You know what the real world is like, you know it’s not all sunshine and rainbows, you know it’s the exact opposite. You analyze every little thing in your life, but why? Is it to avoid getting hurt? Or is it to find happiness. You stay up in the late hours of the night trying to think about every possible situation to get through all of your problems. You think too much, you trust almost nobody. Why, baby girl? Put your faith in somebody. Your insecurity proves your respect toward yourself. Of course you try to live away from a drama filled life, but you know what you’re worth. Your worth being kept at someone’s side. Open your eyes up to the world, take those blinders off of your sight. You’re worth so much more, love yourself, and let someone love you. Open your eyes… Open your eyes…Open. Your. Eyes.”

“Annah, open your eyes.” A soft cooing reached toward me. I slowly slid my eyes open to a new day. As my eyes adjusted to the new found light I looked at my surroundings, trying to find the voice that called out to me. The same voice that appeared in my dream was the same soft cooing voice that had previously spoke. I glanced over at the clock to see 3:03am lit in bright red that illuminated the dark room. I could barely make out Eli passed out on his cot by the window, but his smell definitely clarified that he was here. I stretched my arms weakly before letting them drop back down to the side. I rolled over and clutched my arms to my chest, leaning into the pillows. A deep breath escaped my lips as I tucked the blanket underneath my legs. I closed my eyes as a quiet chuckle traveled through the air. Just then did I realize there were arms wrapped around my body and that I wasn’t resting my head on a pillow; I was resting it on CC’s chest.

“Hmm…?” A small smile peaked on my lips as I sank into his body.

“Nothing, you’re just so peaceful when you sleep. You mumble a lot, it’s kinda cute.” He said quietly, knowing how cranky I get if someone is too hyper or too loud when I’m tired.

“What was I mumbling about?” I asked, keeping my eyes closed.

“Just some lyrics or I think they’re lyrics… Something like ‘Darkness hung overhead.’ I don’t remember exactly-”

“Not the slightest sliver of light shown for miles. You’ve been staring at the gloomy sky for longer than you could remember. A thought crosses your mind, ‘what lies are held in them?’ You can count fingers and toes, how many wishes and promises you’ve blessed to, but is it always wishes and uncertainty? Why can’t someone lie upon a star instead of wish? Is it just wrong, or is it stereotype?” I paused, taken aback about what just came out of my mouth. “Something along those lines?”

“Yeah, I think those were the exact words…” I opened my eyes and met his, “You’re not a mumbler; that’s an understatement.” He joked, but quickly shrugged the situation off. “You look very attractive right now…” He said quietly, sliding his hand up and down my thigh, making me realize I didn’t have shorts on, let alone any pants. Calm down, this isn’t the first time you’ve been pant less in front of him. I looked down at the shirt that was lying against my chest. It was much bigger and baggier than my normal shirts and smelled like CC.

“Mmm… Do I? I wouldn’t suppose you’d allow me to put on some shorts, huh?” I teased, smiling at him. I felt his arms wrap around me slightly tighter and secure me to his chest. He looked down at me and arched an eyebrow.

“Now do you actually think I’m going to let you do that? Or let go of you for that reason?” A playful smirk rested on his lips, while I pouted.

“That’s not fair though. You have a shirt and pants on while I only have a shirt on; and might I add your shirt?” I received a heavy sigh from him, pretending to complain. He let go of me and sat up to take his shirt off, and I took that as my chance to escape. I slipped out of my side of the bed and made my way around the end of it and headed toward the door, letting a giggle escape my lips in the process. I heard a muffled response to my actions come from CC that led to footsteps trailing behind me. I ran into the living room with him on my heels. By the time he was entering the room, I was behind the couch between the window and it. I smiled at him as he slowly made his way toward me. He walked closer toward me and I moved to the other side of the couch. He moved again and I mirrored his movements. I bit my lips as he realized how he was going to take this. This was a game to him now, and CC never loses.

After five minutes of maneuvering me away from the couch, CC cornered me. He stalked deathly slow toward me with a playfully look on his face. At the last minute I slipped past him and walked backward, falling onto the couch. He took my clumsiness as an opportunity. Before I knew it, he was hovering over me with one leg on the couch and the other supporting him from the floor with his hands on either side of my head.

“I win.” He played.

I shook my head, “No, you don’t I do.”

He tilted his head to the side slightly, raising his eyebrows. “Are you sure?” He questioned. I nodded confidently. He sighed and rolled his eyes, “Are you 100% sure? Because the last time I checked, I’m the one on top, and you’re wearing my shirt with no pants on, remember?” I breathed out a laugh and wiggled out from between his hands and sat up, using the arm rest as support. I saw him hesitate for a second then held up a finger. “Give me a second, okay?” I knit my eyebrow together and nodded. He kissed my forehead and went back down the hallway disappearing for a minute or so.

He came back and sat next to me, switching our positions so he was in my previous spot. He propped one of his legs up next to the cushions and let the other one hang off the edge of the couch before pulling me into the open space between his legs. I laid my head on his chest and let him wrap his arms around me.

“You’re so beautiful.” I looked up at him allowing a small smile to form on my lips. “No, seriously, Annah. When I was dating Lauren I thought she was as beautiful as the sun,” I looked down and bit my lip, but he lifted my chin so he could look into my eyes. “But, you’re a million times as beautiful as she was. She thought everything was a joke, which was a good thing for me, but you keep me serious and grounded. You remind me everyday why I was put on this planet. You’re a woman who is sure of her decision, but not sure of herself. You’re a woman scared of rejection and judgment. You’ve never allowed anyone to love you expect for that douche bag Tucker. Yes, I knew about that, but it doesn’t matter now; he’s never getting you back. He messed up in his life, and he screwed up yours. He left you a broken mess, a shattered mirror with missing pieces. It’s my job to fix the pieces of you that are left and replace the ones that disappeared. Although it might not be easy, I promised from the very beginning to be faithful to you.

From the very beginning I knew you were something special, and I know it was wrong to leave you, but now we’re here together and I’m never letting you go again. I will not let anyone destroy who you are as a person anymore, high school was enough and I hate myself for not being there to help you. I can’t even begin to tell you how mad I am because I wasn’t there to help you cope, I wasn’t there to stand up to those douche bags who made fun of you, I wasn’t there to beat the living shit out of those who dared to lay a finger on you. You don’t know how pained I felt when you told me that. Within two weeks of reconnecting you told me everything I missed out on, and I know how hard that must have been for you. But, babe, believe me when I say this; I love you. I love you so much. It’s been a helter-skelter romance from the start, and days come and go, but my feelings for you are forever. I promise you that it will be just you and I for the rest of time, nobody and nothing else will matter as long as I have you. I was put on this earth to love you, Annah and love you I will.” He paused to take a deep breath before sliding off the couch. He dug in his back pocket and pulled out a small, well polished, wooden box. He knelt onto one knee, and opened the box. Inside the box was a small silver ring with a glistening, eye catching black diamond placed perfectly in the center. The silver was weaving away from the diamond and filled with the darkest of black diamonds.

“Annah Nicole Reese, will you marry me?”
