You're The Closest To Heaven That I'll Ever Be
Stay by my side
It was finally the weekend and Andy was over at Lily's house on Friday night helping her set up the basement for tomorrow's band auditions.
"Wanna sleep over tonight?" Lily asked Andy as they sat in her basement playing Guitar Hero.
"Your parents wouldn't mind?" Andy asked in return.
"Andy, my parents don't care. They barely even know I'm here. They're not going to care you're staying over." Lily put the plastic guitar down and stood up from the chair.
"Well, okay. I'm sure my parents wouldn't mind either." Andy put his guitar down as well and followed Lily up the stairs and out the front door.
They walked back to Andy's house so he could grab his things before heading back to Lily's house for the night.
Lily watched Andy set up his bed on the floor from where she was sitting on her comfy bed and something came over her. "Do you want to sleep in the bed with me?"
Andy smiled. "Yeah, it would be a hell of a lot better than the floor." He stood up and crawled into the bed next to her.
"But try anything and I cut your balls off." Lily warned.
"Understood." Andy nodded and slid further down under the blankets as Lily turned out the light.
The bed smelled just like her. She always smelled like flowers. He thought that made her name even more perfect for her.
He lay there and stared up at the ceiling. For whatever reason, he couldn't sleep. He heard Lily mumble something to herself in her sleep and felt her shift and turn her body over. She involuntarily snuggled up into his side with her head resting on his shoulder and her hand on his chest, tangling her legs with his. There was something about having her close to him that made everything better. She made him comfortable. He closed his eyes and fell asleep to the steady sound of her breathing.
