➡➡➡⏺️LOVE AGAIN ⏺️⬅️⬅️
From U.S Bah ❤ ✌🏽
I was sleeping peacefully, lost in the world of
my dreams when the constant shifting on the
bed disturbed my calm. [email protected], I opened my
eyes to narrowed slits and found Evan propped
up on the bed, his head resting in his hands.
I picked up my mobile and saw the time on
the phone. It was 4 in the morning and
darkness was spreaded all around the room. I
had no idea what Evan was doing up at this
time of the night.
“Hey,” I whispered and he raised his head.
“Hey,” he said, his voice sounded exhausted.
“What happened?” I asked.
“Nothing. Just go back to sleep.” he said and
lay down again to rest his head over the pillow.
I tried to go back to sleep as he said but the
anxious look on his face made me restless as
well. A frown was etched on his face and a
thin layer of sweat was covering his forehead.
“You can tell me anything, Evan. I am your
friend.” I said, still lying on the bed, my body
turned towards him.
“Friend?” he smiled at this. “I don’t do
friendships. Helena is enough of a headache
“Well, unfortunately, you have a very friendly
wife. Now come on, tell me, what’s on your
mind?” I asked, scooting closer to him. No
matter how much he tries, he was still a
closed shell and it would take everything in me
to open him up.
“Nothing unusual.” he sighed.
“What do you mean?” I asked further.
“I often wake up in the middle of night and
then fail to sleep again. Happens most nights
in the week.” he said and exhaled loudly.
“Oh,” I whispered. This was not the first time I
had noticed him awake in the middle of the
night but I didn’t know it was a regular thing.
“You can go to sleep. I am used to waking up
early. Don’t worry.” he said and rested his arm
over his eyes.
“How can I not worry?” I whispered. “Believe it
or not, I care about you.”
“Believe it or not, I believe you.” he said
casually and warmth filled me at this.
I scooted closer to him and the movement
caused him to take his arm off his eyes. He
turned to look at me with his expressive eyes
that were filled with confusion. I don’t know
why but at that moment, he looked so
vulnerable that the urge to klzz him
“Close your eyes.” I said, propping my head up
with my elbow.
“Why? Are you going to sing me a lullaby?” he
said with a smirk on his face.
“Maybe,” I shrugged and then ordered, “Now
close your eyes.”
Shaking his head, he did what I said. Smiling
at how long his lashes were, I extended my
hand and rested it over his forehead.
“Ssshhh,” I put a f!ng£r on his l!ps. When he
was silence, I took the hand back to his
forehead and [email protected] gently with the pore of
🎶Hold me close and hold me fast
The magic spell you cast
This is la vie en rose🎶
I sang the lyrics of the most calming song I
have ever heard. My mother used to sing it to
me whenever I was stressed out and couldn’t
sleep because of exams. It never failed to
release all the tension from my body.
🎶When you klzz me, Heaven sighs
And though I close my eyes
I see la vie en rose🎶
🎶When you press me to your heart
And in a world apart
A world where roses bloom🎶
I [email protected] his forehead in circular motion,
singing the lyrics to him. The expression of
restlessness on his face smoothened and a
sigh of relaxation escaped his mouth.
🎶And when you speak
Angels sing from above
Every day words
Seems to turn into love songs🎶
I took my hand off his forehead and placed it
over his eyes in gentle sweeping motion. With
other hand, I adjusted his arm and rested my
head over it.
🎶Give your heart and soul to me
And life will always be
La vie en rose🎶
I kept repeating the lyrics over and over again.
Soon, his harsh breathing changed into softer
ones and his pink l!ps parted slightly. Pulling
my hand from his eyes, I wrapped it around his
waist and closed my eyes like him. His
warmth enveloped me and soon, I was lost in
the world of sleep.
The next morning, I woke up with a hand
brushing my cheeks. I slowly opened my eyes
and found Evan gaping at me. His hair was
ruffled se-xily and his piercing blue eyes were
penetrating through my skull.
“How was your sleep?” I asked in my sleepy
voice and stretched my arms over my head.
“Great,” he smiled and grazed his thumb
against my cheeks. “Thank you.”
“The pleasure is all mine.” I grinned.
He reciprocated my smile and then lowered his
head towards me.
“No. Morning breath.” I placed my hand over
my mouth defensively and he chuckled at this.
Pushing the hair away from my face gently, he
lowered his head and then rested it in the
crook of my neck.
“Better?” he whispered and his breath tingled
“Maybe,” I whispered and closed my eyes,
relishing at his proximity. “What’s the time?”
“Didn’t check.” he said. I was too cozied up to
look at the clock or my mobile.
The [email protected] countours of his [email protected] body was
moulding into my soft one, our hearts beating
against each other. We stayed still like this
until a soft knock erupted from the door. “Can I
come in?” Cara’s voice whispered from the
other side of the door.
“Yes, of course.” I said and pushed Evan away.
He [email protected] at first but I finally managed to
move his bulky body with my small hands.
Cara came inside with a cup in her hands,
steam coming out of the cup. “I made coffee
for you.” she smiled proudly and pres£nted it
“You did?” I asked in a mixture of proud and
“Geena helped me.” she grinned and I realised
that Geena probably did all the work and let
her take the credit. But still, a girl of her age
was considerate enough to do this and it was
great of her.
“Thank you so much, baby.” I took the cup
from her hand and smelled it. The bittersweet
smell filled my nostrils and made me feel
instantly fresh. “It smell amazing.” I said and
took a deep inhale, deciding to brush first.
“Didn’t you make one for me?” Evan asked with
a pout on his mouth. Guilt appeared on Cara’s
face and she lowered her head.
“Don’t worry. We will share one.” I said and
[email protected] the cup to Evan. Knowing him, he must
have brushed the minute he woke up. “What
would you like to have in breakfast?” I asked
“Anything but runny eggs.” she made a
“What about omelet like Daddy?” I asked.
“Okay.” she shrugged. “I’ll wait for you on the
dining table.” she said to me.
After she left the room, I turned to Evan and he
had a gloomy expression on his face. When I
asked him what was bothering him, he replied,
“No matter how much anyone try, there is an
invisible wall between me and my daughter
and it’s all my fault.”
“Any wall can be broken.” I said and laced my
f!ng£rs with his large ones.
“Not necessarily.” he whispered and brought
our linked hands to his mouth. He placed a
small klzz on my hand and then hopped out of
bed to take a shower.
