Chapter 25: Wakeful Bliss
Feeling the cool airbrush up against my legs, send chills throughout my entire body. So I naturally scooted myself closer to where Eli was, however, I didn’t feel his presence nor his body next to me. So I quickly opened my eyes and sat upright, I immediately reached my hand out towards the sheets and pulled them towards me.
I then looked at the empty bed space that was right next to me. Placing my hand on the mattress, I knew that Eli had left a long while ago since the sheets felt a bit cold. I wonder what time he left? I have to admit I was a little sad that he was gone, but I could understand why. Since my parents come home early in the morning, and I’m sure Eli doesn’t want either of us to get caught. I just wish he could have woken me up to say goodbye before he left at least. but he’s to nice to wake me up from my beauty sleep, I thought to myself with a giggle.
Breathing out, I looked out the window next to me and noticed that it was raining. Pressing the sheets closer to my naked body, I could feel my heart flutter with butterflies. I was still on cloud 9 I guess with everything that happened last night, though I wish Eli could have been here to share this moment with me. I then get a sudden realization of what I said last night!
“Oh my god!” I voiced out shyly.
I gripped the sheets tightly and covered my face with it as I laid myself back into my bed. I then began to rock my body side to side with embarrassment as I thought back to what I told Eli. I can’t believe I said such perverted things last night, but mainly I’m in disbelief that I asked him to marry me! Am I crazy or something!? I’m still only 14, I mean yeah I told him when I’m done with school and all, but I’ll barely be turning 18 by the time I graduate.
Placing my hands against my face, I could feel myself blush as I tried to control my heavy breathing. As I slowly calmed my nerves, I started to hear some light steps coming down the hall. The steps were becoming louder and louder until finally, they stopped, only to be followed by a sudden knocking on my door.
“Sweetie, are you awake? If so I’m coming in.” My mother said loudly behind the door.
I then hastily wrapped myself with the sheets to cover my entire body. I mean what am I suppose to say if she saw me naked?! That I like to sleep in the nude? She’ll never believe me, especially with how easily cold I get at night.
“Uh..yeah. I..I’m up.” I answered her still flustered as I tighten my hold against the sheets.
“Morning my little Luna, it’s time to get up already. I made breakfast and your father has something to give you.” My mother said as she entered the room with a kitchen towel in her hands.
“Morning Mom and okay! I’ll...get up in a minute.” I responded to her a bit shyly. I can’t have her pull these sheets off! If she does, then it’s all over for me! How can I ever explain to her why I’m naked underneath?
“Are you okay sweetie? Your face is a bit red, you don’t have a fever do you?” My mother asked as she walked closer to the bed, she then placed her hand against my forehead to feel my temperature.
“I.. I’m fine Mom, just a little cold. That all, now can you please leave so I can get ready and freshen up.” I said to her quickly as I began to sink my body deeper into the sheets.
“Alright then, I’m just making sure you’re not getting sick on me because then I end up taking- Uh...Luna, what is this?” As my mother began to explain herself, she suddenly stopped and pointed out a spot on my white sheets, following her finger to where she was pointing at. I felt myself growing pale and my jaw immediately dropped to the floor practically!
It was my bloodstains from last night! I know that we girls usually bleed a bit once we lose our virginity, well at least that’s what my Sex Ed teacher told me. So I’m pretty sure that’s what that stain is from! But how am I gonna explain this to Mom?!
“It looks like blood...Luna. What happened here?” She asked with a bit of stern in her voice. I knew I had to say something believable and fast!
“Oh! Uh...it’s uh. I was.. drinking some fruit punch last night, and I kinda spilled some of it on the bedsheets by accident.” I explained to her feeling a little bit guilty. I don’t like lying to my parents, but for Eli, I’ll do anything. Even if that means breaking my parent’s trust.
“What time did Elijah leave yesterday? I know he came over when your father and I were at work.” My mother began to ask more questions as she crossed her arms in front of her. I knew she was trying to piece things together. So I had to think of something fast!
“He came over as soon as Dad left. We only chatted a bit and then he left right after.” I explained to her trying to sound convincing. I was starting to feel my body beginning to sweat underneath the sheets!
“An what were you guys talking about?” She continued to integrate the situation. I was starting to run out of lies to tell her! Seriously, how does Alexa do it?! She makes it look so easy with the way she lies to her parents all the time!
As I tried to think of something quickly, I finally knew what to say that would make her uncomfortable.
“His dad! He’s been wanting to know about his father...” I said to her as I avoided her stare.
“Oh....well. Okay then...Hurry up and get changed so we could eat together.” She said sounding a bit uneasy, she then made her way out my door and closed it behind her.
Letting out a breath of relief, I pushed the sheets off of me as I rushed myself towards my door to lock it. Though I instantly regretted it as I felt a sharp pain in my lower abdomen, the pain was too much as I fell to my knees.
I knew that losing my virginity was going to be painful, but I wasn’t expecting it to hurt afterward, especially not like this!
Biting my lower lip, I slowly stood myself up as I held on to the doorknob tightly. I then felt my waist throbbing in pain as well as I began to breathe out steadily. Looking at my bare stomach I noticed some purple markings around my hips.
“What is this?” I said to myself quietly as I traced the bruises on my skin.
I carefully made my way to the restroom to take a look at my body. Making my way inside, I stood right in front of the mirror in complete shock!
“Eli....are you freaking serious!” I said to myself loudly.
I could see Eli’s handprints around my waist as well as some light bruising on both of my hips. The amount of hickey’s that he left around my breast and lower stomach was uncountable! It looked like someone was beating my body up in my sleep! I mean, I know that we were holding each other tightly but I didn’t know he was holding on to me this strongly! I guess that’s what happens when you’re in the moment...
As I looked at each bruise on my body, I couldn’t bring myself to be angry at Eli for it. If anything I was blushing with a bit of happiness, each touch, each mark that he gave me was his way of showing me how much he loves me, the strange thing is that none of my markings hurt like I thought they would. So I’m really relieved about that.
As I finished washing my face, I felt a bit refreshed. I would love to take a shower, but my parents were already waiting for me to come to eat with them. As I began to change into some clothes I failed to notice the huge marking on my neck as I faced the mirror.
“Damn it, Eli! Why my neck of all places!” I said annoyingly towards myself as I raised my neck a bit. You could see a clear vision of Elijah’s kiss marks that he planted all around my neck, how am I suppose to cover this with makeup?!
“Luna! Breakfast is waiting!” My dad said yelling from the dining room.
“I’m coming! Just..one sec!” I yelled back feeling flustered.
I then rushed towards my closet and began searching for a sweater to wear, I need something to cover my neck! So I quickly grabbed my only turtle neck that I found in the depths of my closest and threw it on. The tingle sensation vibrated lightly throughout my neck as the soft fabric brushed up against my hickeys. I guess the marks around my collar bone and neckline are still very sensitive.
“I’m coming already!” I answered back a bit annoyed with my mother as I made my way out of the room.
My body was still in pain, especially my lower waist but I had to push through it and not let my parents notice!
“Alright alright I’m here, we can eat now!” I voiced out eagerly as I entered the kitchen, I then sat next to my father who was already eating.
“Luna, you need to start waking up early so you could help me make breakfast.” My mother said to me as she placed a plate of food on the kitchen table.
“I know, I’m sorry. I kinda slept a little late last night.” I answered her back while I poured myself a cup of juice.
“What were you doing that kept you up late last night?” My father asked with a curious look as he set his coffee mug down.
Caught off guard by his question I almost choked on my drink. I nervously put my cup down in front of me and took a bite of my toast.
“I...I was finishing up a book I was reading..” I said to him as I took another bite of my bread.
“I didn’t know you like to read. Oh! Before I forget, I have something for you.” My father responded as he reached in his pocket.
He then placed it on the table right by my side and gave me a warm smile.
“Is this my new phone!” I said loudly with excitement as I grabbed the new phone.
“Yes, however, you have to make sure you don’t lose this one. Do you understand, because your father is not buying you a new one after this.” My mother said strictly as she sat across the table from me.
“I promise! I won’t lose it this time, thanks, Dad! I love you.” I responded to both of them as I wrapped my arms around my father, giving him a hug I made sure to place a light kiss on my Dad’s forehead.
“Sweetie, aren’t you a bit hot wearing that sweater inside the house?” My father pointed out as I pulled myself away from him.
“No, I’m a little cold right now. So I don’t mind wearing it.” I answered truthfully as I went back into eating.
“You’re just like your mother, always getting cold easily.” My dad said with laughter in his voice.
“Hey, it’s not my fault. This is just how my body is... ” My mother voiced out with a smirk.
Finishing up our breakfast, I made sure to help my mom with the cleaning right after. I was really eager to finish up my chores and everything else so I could call Eli already! It’s ridiculous how much I miss him already, even though I just saw him a few hours ago.
As I finished up the last few things I had to do around the house, I quickly rushed myself to my room and closed the door behind me. I then immediately began to dial his number and pressed call.
Placing the phone against my ear, I was growing very anxious with every ringing that I heard. I wanted to hear his voice and see if he made it home safely.
However disappointment took over me when he didn’t pick up, maybe he’s still sleeping? If so, then I’ll send him a text to have him call me later.
