Chapter Eleven: First Christmas
was December 23rd, the day before Christmas eve, I had officially moved
into Kyle's apartment five days ago, and I think I had seen him once
since then, he has been filming and isn't due to finish until march at
the latest, but he was supposed to be home tomorrow, so I just had to
hope and wait.
I wanted this Christmas to be extra special, not only because this would be our first Christmas together, but because we had all missed his birthday which was November 29th.
I was currently still trying to find Kyle a present, I had looked everywhere but nothing looked right for him, there was one last shop that I hadn't been to, so I headed in and found his gift without even having to look for longer than five minutes, I headed back out of town shopping centre and got on the first bus that arrived, that would take me near to where the apartment was.
As soon as I stepped through the apartment door, I had this weird feeling come over me, but I just shook it off and headed into the living room, where the little tree that I had gotten was stood in the corner of the room, newly decorated, with a few presents under it, there looked like there was more there than what I had left this morning, but maybe I had miss counted.
The wrapping paper, scissors and cello tape were still on the table, where I had left it, so I quickly got to wrapping Kyle's present and put it under the tree before putting everything away and then headed into the kitchen to make myself some tea.
I headed straight to the cupboards, saying hi to Kyle as I walked past him, and then froze with my hand on a packet of pasta, and turned around. "Kyle?"
"Oh My Gods, Kyle" I ran over to him and jumped into his lap, I think I heard him groan quietly when I kneed him in his privates, but he shifted and pulled me closer to him, wrapping his arms around my waist, so that I was now straddling him, and then I kissed him as forcefully as possible, he matched the kiss just as eagerly as one of his hands went to my head, and his other hand went to my hip and he pulled me even closer to him, if that was even possible, and groaned again, but not in pain this time.
"Hey" He said, once we were both comfortable and had stopped kissing. I stayed sat in his lap, with his arms now just around my waist and mine on his shoulders, both of us were breathless after that little make out session.
"Hey" I said back to him, breathlessly, "You're back early?"
"Yeah, the director's wife called and demanded him home, I think one of his children was hurt, but we have until the 3rd January before we start filming again"
"Really? That's great"
"Yeah, I know" and then he leaned down and kissed me again, and pulled me closer to him at the same time, which caused us both to groan at the sensation.
"Well, we have the rest of tonight and tomorrow morning to ourselves, what would you like to do?" He didn't pull away from me as he spoke; he trailed kisses down my jaw and to my neck as he finished speaking.
"Why don't we eat first?" I managed to get out, it was half past four, but if he kept doing what he was doing, then neither of us would be eating today.
He groaned, "Urgh, if we have to?" he then pulled back and looked at me pleadingly.
"Yes, now I was about to make pasta, do you want some?"
"Yes, please" he held onto my waist for a few more seconds before letting me go to make our pasta.
I picked up the packet of pasta that I had dropped onto the counter when I first saw Kyle, and grabbed another one from the cupboard along with a pan, I was about to place it on the hob when Kyle walked up behind me and wrapped his arms around my waist and rested his hands on my stomach.
"I missed you, Rosie" He whispered into my ear and then took the pan from me and placed it on the hob as well as turning it on for me.
"I missed you too, Ky" I replied, as I kissed his jaw and then got the water and the milk for the pasta.
I quickly started cooking the food, and as I put the empty packets in the bin Kyle reached around my waist again and pulled me to him as I turned around, and then started kissing me again.
"Hey, I have to watch the food" I told him, leaning away, even though I didn't want to.
"You can leave it for a few minutes," He stopped and kissed me again, "I've really missed you"
"I've missed you too, I just told you that" I smiled at him and then kissed him back, so that he knew I was being serious.
"I'm just really happy that you agreed to move in with me, I'll get to wake up to you every morning instead of being alone"
"Really? You're hardly here." I wasn't trying to be mean, but it came out wrong.
"I know, but I'll be here more once we finish filming."
"I know that, I just don't like being away from you, you make me feel safe."
"I don't like being away from you either, and I'm glad that you feel safe with me I want you to, now let's eat and then we can be alone for the rest of tonight and tomorrow morning, right?"
"Yes Okay, let's eat first," I said, as I walked over to the hob and checked on the pasta, it was almost done. "Why don't you set the table and it should be ready by then."
"Okay" Kyle set the table and got two glasses of water, and then got two plates and set them on the counter next to me, just as I was turning the hob off and continued to mix the pasta, and then put it on the plates.
As we ate our tea, we spoke about what I had been doing since I last saw him, which was 13th November, unless you wanted to count three days ago when I saw him for about twenty minutes, before he was called back to the set.
He told me some about the film that he was in, and that he had to kiss a girl in it, and even though I was slightly jealous, I knew what his job role required him to do and I knew that it was me who he came home to at night, but he wanted to tell me because the pictures could be on the internet by tomorrow.
Once we had finished, I collected the plates and then took them over to the sink and begin washing them, while Kyle dried and put them away.
"So, what were you doing when you came in, it looked important?" He asked me.
"Just finishing some wrapping." I smiled.
"Anything interesting?" he smiled back.
"Okay, if that's what you want me to think" I rolled my eyes and smiled as I unplugged the sink, before taking the towel from Kyle and drying my hands.
As I put the towel down Kyle pulled me towards him and wrapped his arms around my waist, he had been really touchy-feely since I got here, but I wasn't complaining, my chest was now pushed up flat against his and I could tell he was trying not to look down and trying to stay locked on my eyes, I was wearing a teal tank top which was quite low, I had taken my dark blue and white jacket off once I had heated up enough, so I stood on my tip toes so that I could wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him.
"So..." he started as he kissed his way to my jaw and then down my neck, "What should we do for the rest of the evening?"
"I don't know, maybe watch a movie?" He pulled back and stared at me in shock.
"No," I laughed, "Now why don't you stop delaying us and lead the way to our room?"
He laughed as well and then kissed me forcefully on the lips for a second before taking both of my hands and leading me towards our room, where we spent the rest of the night and the next morning exploring our boundaries, only stopping for about ten hours when we slept and ate, I was so glad that Kyle was home for our first Christmas.
