"I can't believe I go back tomorrow. Come with me." He murmured as I groaned, burying my head into his chest.

"I can't. I wish." I grumbled, as he brought the calendar up on his phone.

"Four weeks till Christmas break baby. We can do this!"

"We are doing it. Aren't we?" I grinned, as he gazed at me.

"I really fucking love you. How are you finding your course? You're smashing it from what I can see."

"Its so good. I love it. I just miss you. I really, really miss you."

He sighed as he circled my palm with his thumb.

"I know baby. I don't need an excuse to come back here you know."

He picked up my book from the beside table, and smiled.

"A Christmas Carol. How's that going?"

"God, please don't let me talk about it now. I'm bored to tears from it." I laughed, as he kissed my lips.

"So. Our last night."

I closed my eyes as I hugged him, refusing to acknowledge that sentence.

"So, what do you see us doing when we finish college?" I asked desperate to talk about something else.

"Hmm. I would suggest we move in together." He smirked, as his eyes glinted wickedly.

"My god would we ever leave the house?" I laughed as he pretended to mull it over.

"Probably not. But who gives a fuck?"

He kissed me then, and my heart ached at the thought of him leaving again. He was the most handsome creature on the planet, and he was making me stupidly happy. What had I done to change the Lothario that he had once been?

"Can I ask you something?" He said softly, as I kissed his lips again greedily.

"Anything."

"Have you ever been tempted? By any one else?"

I laughed in disbelief, when I saw he was serious.

"Theo, come on. Not only are you physical perfection, you are my absolute best friend. We also have incredible sex." I kissed him again, as he held me in place.

"All of that aside. I'm still not here."

"So?"

"So I don't want you to ever cheat on me."

My mouth dropped open as I blinked, his eyes locked on mine as I shook my head.

"Do you think I'd even be with you if there was any one that compared to you? I am not interested in anyone else, baby. I know it's hard. It's long distance and its shit."

I bit my lip as I held his face in my hands, kissing him all over his face as he began to smile.

"I am not remotely interested in anyone else either. I love you baby. I find it easy saying no."

"Do I need to come to your college and crack skulls?" I teased, as he smirked.

"Theres one girl called Sherry who is having trouble with accepting the word no. Shes my roomies ex. So he is helping me out with that one." He chuckled as my eyes narrowed.

"Sherry? What the fuck kind of name is that?"

"Down girl." He whispered as he nibbled my lip softly.

"I will rip her throat out." I warned, as he widened his eyes.

"I don't doubt it!"

"Slut. Fucking home wrecker. Maybe I will come back with you." I muttered darkly as I made a mental note to search for her on facebook.

"Enough. I suggest we spend the rest of the evening right here, in this bed. Fucking. Sucking. Licking. Biting..."

"If you insist." I breathed as he pushed me down onto the bed.

"I wish someone would've told me how good it is fucking someone you love."

"Theo." I murmured as he lifted his eyes to mine. "Its really good fucking your best friend. Especially when you're in love."

"Touche, Phillips." He grinned, as he began kissing my navel. I tried not to think about him leaving tomorrow, flying away from me to a girl name Sherry who wanted my spot in life.

"I love you." I whispered.

Hours later I woke up in his arms, the sunlight streaming through the curtains. My heart raced as I realised he was leaving today, my hand gripping his with anxiety. He stirred as he saw me, smiling immediately.

"I love waking up next to you."

"Same."

"We didn't sleep much last night." He said as he stretched, as I finally untangled myself from him. I left the warm bed as I checked the time on my phone.

"Shit Theo, its eleven am!" I exclaimed as he groaned.

"Fuck. I fly at two. Fuck." He said as he dived out of bed, tugging his clothes on as I began packing his bag for him quickly.

"I'll order the cab, you get dressed." I ordered, as he began to brush his teeth, pulling his jeans on as I tried not to panic.

"I don't want you to miss your plane baby, shall I drive you?"

"No it's cool, I can pay the driver to haul ass."

I nodded, zipping his bag as I looked around the room. I ordered him an uber, relieved to see it was only five minutes away. He grabbed his bag from me, kissing me hard on the lips.

"Sorry baby. I wanted a much better goodbye."

I shrugged as I kissed him back, following him downstairs as I saw the house was empty. I felt hollow inside as he opened the door, waving at the uber driver.

"Fuck. I love you. I really fucking do. I will see you in four weeks." He kissed me again, his hands on my face as he gazed at me, before running towards the car. I watched him sadly, my heart breaking again as the car sped away. It hurt how much I loved him, and it hurt even more knowing this shit would be going on for a further three years. I didn't know if I could cope with not being with him as much as I wanted to be, but I guess it was only temporary. I went back to my bedroom, climbing into the bed where he had been sleeping mere moments before. I clutched the pillow as I inhaled his scent, my eyes misting over as I felt sadness wash over me.

Four more weeks.
