Busy- Haytham/Reader

By KawaiiAssassina

Busy

Living in a Tavern with the Grandmaster of the Templar Order was not easy. Especially when it came to special meetings and missions when he wasn't here. I always sat in our room, or out on the open streets of New York City. I haven't seen or heard from my best friend/boyfriend, Haytham Kenway since Johnson was assassinated. I had told him before to not stress himself over this, but seeing as he IS the Grandmaster, there was no stopping him. He constantly arrives late at night and leaves just before the crack of dawn, as if he was avoiding me. It was only a matter of time before- the door opened, my fingers stopping their trend of writing. I looked from the paper to the door, seeing the looming presence of Haytham himself. I immediately looked away, continuing to write in my 'book'. "Hello, dear." I muttered, too tired from the lack of sleep to say it any louder. "How was the... meeting?" I paused to let out a yawn, rubbing my drooping eyes with the back of my hand. "I take it, it wasn't as cheerful as when Johnson was here."

"Indeed." Heavy footsteps stalled into the medium sized room, before a pair of lips pressed against the side of my head. A giggle tore it's way out of my throat, fingers brushing against his. Haytham usually showed this kind of affection behind closed doors. In public he would put a hand on the swell of my back or wrap his arm around my arm, like the gentleman he is. It was never often he would show me this side of him, when he did it would bring a burst of comfort throughout my body. Like he wanted me here and it was a good decision to travel with him across the Atlantic. Setting my quill down, I blew gently on the scratched parchment so it would dry. I closed the book before standing up from the chair. Returning the kiss on his forehead, bumping against his tricorn hat. A smile came to his face, arms wrapping around my waist in a small, but loving hug. Once we parted, he gestured to the bed. "Go on, I'll join you shortly." Nodding, I pressed another kiss to his cheek before stepping aside towards the bed. As I got under the covers, Haytham's name was called from outside the room. Charles Lee knocked three times on the door. I gazed at Haytham, who in turn gave me a tired look, walking towards the door. Once he opened it and stepped out, I got under the covers and fluffed the pillow a little before resting my tired head on top of it. Muffled voices kept me awake, on top of that, another wave of loneliness washed through me, chilling me to the bone. Thoughts swarmed my head. If he leaves for another mission... what did Charles want that was so important... Tears started to flood my eyes, before the door opened once again. I wiped them on the pillow, hiding my sadness with a look of content. "Are you alright, love?" A weight sunk the bed, a hand was placed on my waist, fingers rubbing gently in small circles.

"It's fine, Haytham." I assured him, my fingers curling around his.

"(Y/N), you can tell me anything, you know that, right?" He spoke against my neck, legs soon tangling with mine.

"Mmhm." I hummed tiredly, a smile pulling at my lips. "I only wish for a peaceful night with my beloved." I felt a smile curl against my neck, a bare chest pressing against my back.

"You should've asked."

"You're busy all the time Haytham. I don't want to interrupt you from your work."

"I always have time for you." I give a small laugh at the statement. "Goodnight, dear."

"Goodnight, Mr. Kenway." After a long period of silence, he spoke once again.

"I love you." I blush deeply, his grip tightening against my fingers in a gentle hold. He only ever said that once, when he confessed his love for me, now, it filled the piece in my heart. A bright, but tired smile came to my face.

"I love you too."

A/N- I wrote this from my phone.

sujitha nair: What's so distinct about this story was that it could easily be real. Praveena can be your classmate, neighbor or that girl you saw at the coffee shop today. The important decisions she makes and the dilemmas she faces, remind us of our own twisted lives.

Michael Hogan: If anyone would advise Lindsey Martin-Bower not to mix religion and politics, she would probably tell them to take a hike. This rollicking novella does just that. It considers the case of Yung Sung Gonne and his Universality Church and two young women trying to bring it down. Frustrated by the ru...

Jessica: I loved the title of this story, and that is what got me hooked. But reading this from beginning to end, it was amazing. How the character changed from someone on two legs to an animal on four was great. The emotions on this story is one to be remembered. There are a few grammar things that need ...

Angel S. Adames Corraliza: Sensational! As a fan of superheroes, I have to say, you have a real winner of a story so far. I like that you made Allison a Wonder Woman expy, but kept her likable and relate-able in this first chapter. You showed us the Mother while also glancing at the Superhero, which I think is important to...

AnnaLucia: This fanfiction has an amazing plot. It's very different from the books, yet the author still managed to keep the personalities the characters had in the books. Your Alec and Magnus still are themselves, even though you created a different plot where Bane had to seduce Lightwood to get informati...

Lacey Schmidt: The Trouble with Super is that you can't stop reading it. Mr. Barrett's characters are all to easy to relate to even if you don't have a super quirk of your own, and their plight is both heart-rendingly funny and heart-warmingly sad at the same time. It's a bit like Office Space meets the Matri...

OpheliaJones: This story took a different kind of spin on the "normal girl lives with definitely not normal guy" plot. The plot points of Frey's father, Liam's family, and Frey's view of Liam's world were good to read. She did not fall in love with him in the first couple weeks. Their lives were not smooth in ...

fellipxx: I loved this novel, it was very sweet and big on the emotions I really enjoyed it and could not stop reading not even for a second, I even cried a little bit at a few touching moments too. And overall I found this book sweet, realistic and cheesy (I like the cheesy stuff).

FreakyPoet: I found this story well written and extremely cute. I like how the emotional roller coaster, otherwise know as love, was done here. it was very believable that these two characters would deny, agonize, then come to except their feelings the way that they did. I enjoyed it very much, thank you ...

Kaitlyn Bier: The way you build the world around the characters is amazing, and the way you get into the character's mind and make us feel for the characters through the entire story.

Patrick Johns: The Prince was an exciting read. I enjoyed the spoiled bratty protagonist and his drastic change through out the story. The world building was well though out and clear. The author did a great job painting a picture for the reader without having a map. I liked the connection to real life leaders....

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now. It is a simple, easy read, yet deep in meaning and rich in storyline. I do not know what kind of research or prior knowledge Leigh has of First Nation tribes, but sh...

Deidre L. Swain: I understood where the story was going but the writing skills were lacking a lot. There are some places that had no flow. The plot was good which is what kept me reading the whole story. I think the author shows promise. They just need to tighten up on their skills to really get it going
