- closer to the sun by slightly stoopid.
Sunlight streamed through the blinds, hit my nose, and caused me to groan, rubbing my eyes and rolling over. I hadn’t noticed it, but I rolled right into Johnny’s bare chest. I glanced up and saw he was awake, though not wearing his glasses. He smiled down softly at me before tracing circles into my shoulder blade; I was still dressed in my party garb from the night before.
“Good morning,” He whispered as I attempted to blink the sleep away from my eyes.
“Bonjour,” I replied, nuzzling the side of his neck. He hugged me closely.
God, he still smelled good.
“Did you sleep well?” He asked as I stretched my legs out before sitting up besides him. It was already fairly late in the day; I’m surprised none of the other guys had come to the hotel room in an attempt to wake Knoxville up. Of course, no one knew I was here. I wondered if anyone had tried to find me since I left the bar.
Nah, probably not.
“I did…” I laid my head against his chest, staring up into his deep brown eyes. “Better than I have in a while, really.”
He chuckled. “Considering we didn’t do anything…”
I giggled again. “Considering.”
He sighed deeply and caressed my cheek.
“How are things…” Johnny trailed off. “You know, with Jeff?”
I sighed myself and looked away, unsure of what to say. “We haven’t talked. I don’t know, he’s pretty upset with me.” I paused, in thought. “How are things with Madison?”
I had sort of forgotten about Johnny’s oldest daughter, but she had been a bit icy to her father the last I saw her. Of course, she’d been pretty icy to me too but I wouldn’t blame her. I’d be icy to me too.
Johnny tucked a strand of dark hair behind my ear and shrugged.
“I don’t know,” He replied earnestly. “She’s been with her mom for the past week, so I haven’t seen her in a while. And last I did, she didn’t seem too happy with me.”
I rubbed his arm.
“I’m sorry,” I bit my lip.
He smiled. “It’s fine, Luce. Don’t be sorry.”
He leaned in closely and pressed his lips gently against mine. I found myself kissing back before moving to sit on his lap, straddling his waist. The two of us kissed intensely before a loud knock sounded on the wood of the hotel room’s door. We pulled apart suddenly.
“What?” Johnny growled harshly. “Who is it?”
“Knoxville!” Steve-O croaked from the other end. “We can’t find Lucy anywhere! Have you seen her?”
F*ck. I pulled away and nearly fell backwards off the bed before Johnny grabbed my arm, holding me in place.
“Don’t go,” He whispered to me before glancing back up at the door. “SHE’S HERE!” He shouted only to be met by silence on the other end. “Steve-O?”
“Yeah, I heard you!” He replied. He seemed… sad. And I wasn’t sure why he’d be so sad. If he was really worried about me, then shouldn’t he be… relieved?
“Need anything else?” Johnny called again.
“Nah, we’re just shooting in a bit. Nothing more,” Steve responded before a set of footsteps trailed down the hall. He had gone.
Johnny began kissing down my neck once more but I couldn’t shake that odd feeling resonating with me; why had Steve been acting so weird? He was never like that.
“You okay?” Johnny asked, sensing something was off. I ran my hand over his chest before nodding.
He flipped us over on the bed so he rested on top of me, kissing down my neck again. I giggled at that.
“We have to go film soon…” I trailed off as he began playing with the straps of my dress.
“I can be fast.”
