I spent the night at I.'s house last night, again.|
I worked, hung out with a good friend of mine, then made it back to the South Grand circuit for last call. I hung out with E. at his very closed work for a while. It seems that he and J., whom I saw earlier in the evening, and he have a little competition to see who can hook up with me first. Too bad they don't know about I. or maybe they would back off. Those two actually make me feel a bit like a piece of meat; they make it a point to get me alone with them for a few minutes to hit on me. When they figure out that I'm not going home with either of them, the three of us regroup and hang out as normal.
E. actually apparently sent my traveling companion a text message while we were out of town containing a love letter for me. Neither of our cell phones worked though, so we never got it. That's kind of creepy. I didn't see him for a few weeks before I left and he decided I needed a love letter while I was out of town? Weird.
But anyway, while I was there I. called to wish me a good night. When he figured out I wasn't at home, I offered him a ride home from work. I finished up my conversation with E. and headed over there. After a bit of drunken hilarity and an artistic conference on menu appearance, I took him home.
In front of his house he kissed me and invited me in. I told him I had an early doctor's appointment and needed sleep, so I would just go home. He told me, "If you come in, I'll set an alarm and we'll get into bed. I'll put my left arm under your body and my right arm around you. Then I'll hold you and kiss your neck and we'll go to sleep."
And that is exactly what happened.
I woke up this morning to an alarm being quickly shut off, followed by being kissed and cuddled.
That's the one thing that I really miss in long term relationships-- that period when every night that two people get to sleep next to each other is special. When relationships begin, you go to bed affectionate and wake up affectionate. After a while, you go to bed tired and wake up grumpy, and occasionally you're in a good enough mood to be affectionate. I haven't had this in almost three years, not to mention the fact that I. is a lot more affectionate in general than my recent ex.
I have no reason to see him today because it's my day off. I probably already need a break from South Grand. I have plans with people in the county tonight anyway. I wonder if he'll call tonight. Oy, how girly is it that I'm wondering if a boy will call? I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
