I wasn’t supposed to..

I wasn’t supposed to wake up like this.

I was supposed to wake up to shivers and longing for my blanket, my body splashed all over the bed. I was supposed to see the blinding light of the sun as it painted my room, since I once again forgot to close the curtain last night. I was supposed to wake up to an empty kitchen, void of anything healthy and warm. I was supposed to see empty pizza boxes and a million and one take out boxes and food that I didn’t recognise. I was supposed to open the TV and watch it all day long, with nothing better to do. Then at night I’d bury myself with work, not allowing myself to think for a moment of why the hell did I forget to lock the door, but I was too lazy to get up. I was supposed to fall asleep with the curtains open again, staring onto my window. I’d count stars that twinkle at night, till I fall asleep to a constant tossing and turning.

But today, I didn’t.

Today I woke up to the warmth of a soft skin brushing against mine. I woke up to the sound of giggles as someone brushed their nose with mine. I woke up to the sound of her laugh, as we both fell off the bed. I woke up to the sun directly looking at me, her brown eyes shinning as there’s that pause when you think, This is perfect. I woke up to the smell of bacon and eggs, waiting patiently on my computer desk. My kitchen is now filled with a variety of food, most of them organic. The TV was now untouched, only used for those Tuesday movie nights where she’ll sob at the sight of Channing Tatum suited up for war, but will snuggle up against me. Work was more productive, with only the distraction of her lips as she craves for attention every once and a while. We fell asleep talking to each other like teenagers, murmuring jokes, the sheets tangled up around our bodies. The curtain was now closed, so I didn’t get to see the stars. But I knew, right here, I had one of my own.

I’m never waking up to a day without her.

And I’m just, ugh. I got this story written at like 5 in the morning when I was supposed to be studying. Someday I’d wake up with my future husband beside me, and he’d never want to sleep alone ever again too.

  1. I love your story and I can not believe it only took you 5 minutes to write! Wow! It's beautiful.

  2. It is so wonderful waking up with the one you love beside you. One day…. you will do this too.

  3. What a beautiful story, maybe you just needed a break from studying. Now back to studying so you can pass your exams!

  4. Beautifully written. If this is what you do at 5am, then what you write when fully awake must be amazing.

  5. What a beautiful little story. I hope my husband wakes up every morning, hoping to never sleep alone again as well.

  6. This is a really sweet post! It's funny how the best writing can be done when you should be doing something else LOL

  7. It's a very sweet story. I'm glad you took the time to write it.

  8. Sweet story of love. I just celebrated my 11th wedding anniversary. I never want to wake up without him either.

  9. Lovely imagery. It sounds like someone has come out of the darkness into light. Very nice!

  10. Aww, that's very sweet. After ten years of marriage, though, I don't mind the bed to myself sometimes.

  11. This is so sweet! I know that after getting married, I don't like sleeping alone.

  12. That is how I feel. I don't ever want to sleep alone again. It's a great feeling to wake up to him next to me 🙂

  13. Wow this was very well written, I've got to say waking up to eggs and bacon would make any day automatically a 100% better.

  14. Beautiful. I thought you were talking about a mom and her little child tho!

  15. Sweet story. There is nothing like waking up to the one who melts your heart.

  16. Writing for pleasure is always more fun than studying, LOL. And most likely more productive in the long run. As far as relationships, you are young. You have a lot of time to figure that out. Enjoy the life you have now and the rest will fall in place.

  17. As usual lovely story. I don't know about my DH, but I don't want to sleep without him by my side.

  18. That's a story that may very well come true. 🙂 It's a nice feeling knowing someone is always there.
