Migraine || Axel & Elle

There are a lot of things that come with dating Axel. He’s majorly bipolar, he can be heartless at times, or he can be a major sweetheart. Although he doesn’t show that last one often around others only myself. Another thing that comes with dating Axel is dealing with him when he is sick. He pushes everyone away because he is too much of a man to admit he wants someone with him when he is sick.

Today is one of those days. I got a message from his brother stating that he was in a mood, but only because he had a migraine. He suffers from them, and every so often he gets them and when he does it’s usually best to leave him be. Only because he’s a major jerk even to me. I know he doesn’t mean it but it still hurts. I walk up the stairs and stop in front of his door mentally and physically preparing myself for what he might say or do as soon as I enter.

“Get out,” he groaned out and placed a pillow on top of his head. I roll my eyes and close the door behind me and walk up to his bed. I sat down slowly and he groaned again and peaked out from under the pillow. He gave me a small smile and closed his eyes again and placed the pillow back on top of him. I gently moved the pillow from on top of him and threw it across the bed. I moved and placed his head in my lap and started brushing my fingers through his hair. This caused him to moan and bury his head in my stomach.

I heard him let out a sigh and his body relaxed a little.

“Did you take your medicine?” I whisper trying not to disturb him too much. He mumbled into my stomach what sounded like a “yeah” but I couldn’t be too sure. I smiled and closed my eyes leaning back continuing to play with his hair. He likes when I do this if he lets me get close enough to comfort him when he is like this. When he gets migraines he has them for days no matter if he takes his medication for it or not. He’s usually more of a pain in the ass today. It must be really bad if he isn’t fighting me on this.

“Julian?” I heard a knock on the door. We both ignore the girl that is standing out there. Julian, Axel’s brother, can worry about it after all she is looking for him. The door soon opens after that and the light is flicked on.

“Turn the fucking light off and get out,” Axel growls out and he looks pissed. He grabbed a pillow and chunked it at the girl in the doorway. She quickly left slamming the door, not even bothering with the lights. Axel groaned and held his head in his hands.

He pulled a pillow back over his head and threw the blanket on top of him.

I get up and make sure the door is locked and I turn the lights off and climb back in bed with Axel. he moves the covers and lifts them up for me to snuggle up against him. He placed his head on my chest and snuggled into me more than me into him. I bring my hand back to his hair and start messing with it again. Soon his breathing evened out telling me that he had fallen asleep.

I searched for my phone to send Julian a text.

Axel’s asleep. His door is locked, your girl pissed him off, tells her not to take it personally. If you need me, text me.

I locked my phone and tossed it to the floor and rolled over moving Axel’s head to the pillow behind him. I snuggle up to him and close my eyes letting out a sigh and soon fall asleep.

I sigh and slowly open my eyes. Looking next to me I see Axel looking at me with a soft smile on his face.

“Hey beautiful,” he whispered and placed a kiss on my forehead.

“How’s your head?” This causes him to groan and close his eyes. He moved closer to me and buried his head in my neck, placing light kisses there every so often.

“Hurts,” I smiled and placed a kiss on his head.

“I’ll go get you some medicine,” I remove him from my body and walk to the door unlocking it and walking Julians room. I knocked on his door and peaked my head inside when he called out “yeah”.

“He’s awake if you want to speak to him,” I shot a small smile to the girl laying on his bed next to him. Julian nodded at me and got up. I closed the door behind me and went to the bathroom and started digging in the medicine cabinet looking for Axel’s medicine. When I found it I grabbed the right amount and walked back to his room where I heard them whispering to each other. I handed him the medicine and the bottle of water on the side table.

When Julian left Axel pulled me to him, making me lay on top of him. He placed a few kisses around my face before leaning back and closing his eyes. I tried to move from him but he wasn’t having it.

“No. Stay,” I laughed and placed my head on his chest, closing my eyes and relaxing into him.

“I love you Elle,” he whispered.

“I love you Axel,”
