Sky’s P.O.V

We climbed in through the window of the guest bedroom we were sleeping in.

The front door was locked and I know there was a key under the flower pot but I really don’t wanna make a mess on the floor since we were soaking from head to toe, and I’m too tired to clean anything up.

As soon as I stepped in, I started shivering uncontrollably. I turned to look at Hudson and saw that he wasn’t exactly enjoying our state right now either.

“I- I’m g- gonna get ch- changed,” I manged to gasp out and he nodded. I quickly walked to our bags with Hudson next to me. We opened our bags and Hudson got his clothes but I however, didn’t exactly have anything that would keep me cosy. I only brought two hoodies and both of them are still drying after I washed them yesterday night.

“Can I borrow that, please?” I managed to ask as I gestured to his hoodie.

Hudson gave me a once-over before handing me the hoodie. I ran into the bathroom and locked the door behind me. As soon as I turned around, I stripped out of my clothes, leaving me completely naked.

I got a white towel from one of the cupboards and dried myself as much as I could. Then I started to dry my hair which was pretty damn hard so I ended up using the hair-dryer. I swear, one of these days, I’m gonna cut my hair.

I put on my new underwear and then Hudson’s hoodie (which was practically like a dress to me) after my hair was completely dried. However, I was still cold as fuck.

“Hudson,” I called.

“Yeah?” he replied.

“You done?” I asked.

“Yeah.”

I opened the door to the bathroom to see Hudson sprawled across the bed... shirtless. How is he not cold now?

I switched off the lights and went to bed. I pulled the covers up to my shoulders but I was still shivering.

Suddenly, I felt a pair of warm arms wrap around me.

Hudson.

I turned around to face him and wrapped my arms around him too. It felt so warm and comfortable.

“Goodnight,” I mumbled against his chest and before I knew it, I was falling asleep.

“Goodnight, princess.” I felt a pair of lips press a soft kiss onto my forehead and that was the last thing I remember.

Friday

The two of us have spent the past few days in Florida and it was hella fun. We need to get back to our home in UK before our friends come back (which on this Saturday) because they’ll just kill us if they found out that we went on a trip without them.

We were currently packing, well, I was packing. Hudson was helping Abi paint something.

Finally, I finished packing all of our stuff and I packed Hudson’s things too cause I don’t think he’s gonna come back any time soon.

I decided to go to Abi’s room to see what they’ve been doing.

“Hudson- Oh, O...K,” I said very slowly and walked downstairs as I saw the two of them deep in conversation about something on Hudson’s phone.

“Hope!” Nona called from the kitchen.

“Yeah?” I yelled back.

“Could you check on the pasta?”

“Yeah.”

****

“No, no, no,” Hudson started. “You’re not supposed to do that.”

I added a little more ketchup ON the fries just to aggravate him a little more.

“Why not?” I snorted.

“Sky,” he warned.

“Fine, I’ll stop,” I replied, giggling. From the past 2 weeks, I’ve learnt that Hudson gets irritated really easily but he just hides it with a blank face.

“You know, I can still tickle you, right?” he smirked and that, people, is the only thing that can stop me. Seriously, though, how the fuck does he tickle like that?

“I won’t irritate you ever again. Happy?”

“Blissful.” His smirk got wider.

Jerk.

****

“Uh, why the hell is our front door open?” I asked slowly as I took my backpack out of the car.

Right now, it’s 9:54 am on Saturday and we just got back to Bradford. Apparently, our house might have gotten broken into.

“I was with you the whole time, wasn’t I? So, how am I supposed to know?” Hudson rolled his eyes.

“Let’s just go and see,” I huffed but couldn’t keep the smile off my face.

Ok, focus, Sky.

It couldn’t be our friends because they said they’ll only be back tomorrow.

Someone may or may not have broken into our house.

“Did you forget to lock the door?” I whispered.

“Yes, Sky, I’m so stupid that I forgot to lock the door when we were going on a 2 week holiday,” he whispered back causing me to grin for some reason. “And why are we whispering?”

“I don’t know,” I shrugged as he walked first into the house. “Be careful.”

“Yeah-”

“Oh, there you two are!” Veronica interrupted us. She looked mad. When I say ‘mad’ I mean the whole ‘I have various evil ways to grant you painful deaths’ shit.

“Um, what are you doing here?” I asked sheepishly.

“I think she lives here, don’t you?” Jeremy contributed when he came from the living room.

“What are the two of you doing here?” Hudson raised a brow.

“We live here,” Veronica exclaimed.

“Oh, we meant, what are you two doing here now?” I emphasised the word ‘now’ and just then, Maya, Lacey, Finn, Hugh and Serene came from the kitchen to greet us. “And all of you? We thought you would only be here tomorrow.”

“You know, we were just casually calling each other to see how we were and stuff, you know, the usual,” Lacey started with a sick smile but then Jeremy took over.

“And then being the way too nice friends we always are-” He was then interrupted by Serene.

“-we came home earlier to watch the UEFA Euro football match finals yesterday so that we can be ready for today but-" Now Serene is interrupted by Hugh.

"-but you were nowhere to be seen. Sounds a little sus don't you think?"

I chuckled awkwardly.

"But then we asked my dad and all and then he said that the two of you went went on a trip on your own... WITHOUT telling any of us," Lacey finished.

"We can explain," I tried to negotiate.

"It was her idea," Hudson shrugged casually as he leaned against the wall. How dare he?

"Was it my idea to go all the way to Italy?" I exclaimed and narrowed my eyes. By the smirk on his face and the overdramatic gasps from our friends, I knew that I just made this a whole lot worse for me. Not him, since (I'm 100% sure) none of them can intimidate him.

"Italy?!" Lacey pouted.

"I've always wanted to go to Italy," Veronica whined.

"Me too," Serene contributed.

"Why though?" I wiggled my brows up and down causing the three of them to flush bright red.

Oh, my god!

I gave Hudson a knowing look and he winked at me, making my cheeks heat up ever so slightly but I just brushed it off.

"You're a fucking genius," I exclaimed.

"Eh, I hear that all the time," he smirked.

"What are you guys talking about?" Maya asked in her cute voice.

The poor thing! She has no idea whatsoever about the shit we're talking about.

"I adore how pure you are," I cooed and pinched her cheeks slightly.

I've got to say it, coming to UK was the best decision I could possibly make...
