“How’d your exams go by the way?” Tina asked feeling completely self absorbed as she kept going on about how she was and all the little things that were going on in her life- kind of why she had not been around Sam as she was only thinking about herself,”My exams went pretty well, I am passed so NYADA is stuck with me,”Tina laughed before getting a little serious,”Super crazy? Okay you are going to have to explain everything to me,” Tina looked him in the eyes because this was a time that he could share what was going on in his life and maybe Tina could give a bit of help with whatever craziness has been going on. It still made her feel bad that she had not been there for him. She noticed that Sam had that protective brotherly look in his eyes just like her cousin had over her. Sam cared about her a lot as did she for him, she was pretty lucky really of the social group she had who cared about her, though she placed a hand on her shoulder shaking her head,”Don’t worry about it Sam. It is Jesse just being Jesse I can handle it myself I am Catwomen after all,” she winked playfully using her superhero person as a boost of confidence.
Tina clasped her hands together and laughed a little,”Mike took me out for a couple of drinks to celebrate our freshman year and well you know how it goes a couple of drinks, the blurr and then the dreadful hangover,” then the almost losing your virginity to your best friend, she said in her head totally editing it for Sam as that was something that was a no go zone,”Hey that sounds like the best way to be spending summer and talking of Quinn,” Tina grinned happy that the two blonde love birds were still happy together,”How are you two doing?” then Tina paused frowning a little as he told her about his internship ending soon. She bite her lip a little hugging Sam quickly,”Oh, Sam! Hey they would be crazy not to take you on!”
“Mine? Good. I mean I passed so it’s cool.” Sam said, smiling a little bit, “You know, worked hard cause I wanted to get stuff done.” The blonde explained. Time passed so quickly in New York, it was like a big marathon he’d been desperate to win. He’d many things to do, including his therapy, that’s why he had been worried if he could handle that, “Not really that very crazy. But you know, school, work, therapy…” He said, shrugging a little, knowing that now Tina would completely understand what he had meant. Sam didn’t like hearing about Tina being bothered by Jesse, he had no idea why the dude hated his friend so much. Tina was sweet, nice, super talented, she was a great friend, clearly she was one of those perfect people, and yet Jesse couldn’t see it, “Kick his ass.” Sam joked, “Like Catwoman do. All the tricks, and superpowers. He’ll be terrified.” He looked towards her, raising his eyebrows a little, and smirking slightly.
Hearing that Mike and Tina had gone out together, Sam furrowed his brows a little. Wait…Mike had asked her out or…? Sam had always thought that the other guy had a crush on her, “Dreadful hangover? Man, I know what that means…” Sam mused, “Why did he let you get drunk though? I mean he should have protected you from getting hurt.” Okay, so sometimes Sam couldn’t help but being someone like a big brother to Tina, though he was quite sure that he had said those words also because him and Mike weren’t best friends, and he didn’t trust the guy that much. He just wanted Tina to be safe, and now he questioned if the Asian dude would give her that, “I mean, it’s cool that you guys are friends, but you know, he should have taken care of you.”
The blonde hugged Tina backs they spoke about his internship, “I missed a lot after the accident, and I don’t know if they hire me.” He confessed, “We’ll see, I’m hoping for the best, but you know, it’s tough in this big, dark world, and I’m still working on my Super Sam skills.”
Marley laughed slightly. “Well, boy, I’ve been where I’ve always been, you know home and work. Pretty exciting life,” she added on a bit sarcastically. “No, but honestly I’ve been good. I have a boyfriend… did I ever tell you about him? Well anyway, I’m not going to get girly on you or anything, but,” she nodded, “He’s really good to me.” She didn’t want to ramble on; Marley figured that his mom might have tried talking his ear off already, since that was the kind of things moms had a habit of doing. She nodded, listening to him talk a bit. “So you two are good then?” Marley found herself worrying about making sure everyone was happy in their relationships, ever since the whole deal with Jake. She felt horrible if other people weren’t doing okay, even if she had absolutely nothing to do with it. Marley nodded again when Sam motioned to where his mom would probably be hovering.
“Like I said, same ol’ same ol. But not bad? So that’s good I guess.” She laughed slightly. “That’s totally understandable though. I mean, with school and all, you must have had finals and major projects and all that right?” she said sort of enviously. Yeah school could be a lot of work, but she still missed it. “That must be a nice break though, to get to relax from all of that.” She let out a slight sigh and leaned her head against Sam’s shoulder. “So, what do you want to do? I mean you must have some sort of Super-Sam-Plan for today, right?” she teased.
“Right, you’re a waitress or something…” Sam thought aloud, making sure that he had remembered the things Marley had told him a few months ago. He couldn’t help but smile as Marley spoke about her boyfriend. She seemed really happy with him, and she deserved to be happy, so Sam wished her all the best, “A boyfriend? Wow, that’s cool. I mean, it’s cool that he’s good to you.” He explained, “You can go all girly on me though, I’m used to talking to girls. My little sister can talk to me for hours on the phone, and I’m usually not bored. Well, at least I pretend not to be bored.” The blonde rambled a little, he really could tell stories about his siblings for days. There were so many women in his life, and he truly appreciated all of them, “Yeah, we’re good. Finally. It’s cool to have her.” Sam smiled shyly as they spoke about Quinn, he loved talking about her, he just wasn’t sure that people wanted to listen, especially with his mom probably trying to overhear their conversation.
“Yeah, a lot. I still have work too. You know, my internship.” Sam was pretty sure that he had told Marley about it before, he still had a few weeks of his internship left though he wasn’t very positive about his future at Marvel, “Yeah, you know, I always have my Super Sam plan for the day.” Sam grinned as Marley asked him that, nudging her playfully, “You can always listen to my new impressions which are super awesome, have I shown you my new Tom Cruise impression? It’s a really good one. Or the Sean Connery one.” The blonde said seriously, nodding his head a little, “Other than that we can watch a movie or play video games. Up to you.”
Quinn smiled as she heard that Sam had been looking things up online, it showed her that he wanted to make more progress, and was getting better in himself. While the previous few months had been a tough for the both of them, but she really felt like they were turning a corner. She nodded as she listened to him ramble about the help that he was going to get, and she supported everything that he wanted to do. She knew that she wasn’t the only person who Sam was going to need to get better, and she didn’t mind taking him to places if it meant he was going to have a bigger chance of getting his movement back. “If that’s what you think you need, then we can organize it when we get back to the city. I hope it helps you.” She said with smile, hoping that there would be a time when they could walk hand-in-hand again.
"Of course I am, you know how much I like your impressions." She grinned, leaning in to kiss his cheek like he wanted her too. Ever since they’d met she’d loved his impressions, and that love grew every single time. Her smile widened as she heard the familiar words, and a part of her couldn’t believe that he’d gone through the trouble to learn that impression for her. "I know it was Ryan Gosling, and it was brilliant." She grinned, leaning in to press another kiss to her boyfriend. "But you know what…you’re better than Ryan Gosling. I’d choose Sam Evans over Ryan Gosling every single time." She told him, remembering their conversation when they’d first started about who was better. They’d come so far since they’d met almost 2 years ago.
Laughing, Quinn shook her head, knowing that he wasn’t exactly the best cook in the world. “It’ll be fun though! Then when it’s your night to cook, we won’t end up eating pasta or pancakes like we normally do.” She chuckled, although she did like the simple foods they had every once in a while. “They might hire you, you know? Or you can go back to work at The Universe?” She suggested, but was interrupted by the knocking at the door. “Ooh, breakfast. I’ll be back in a second.” She laughed, wrapping a robe around her to answer the door.
“Thanks. I know it’s been hard, but you know, I wanna fight.. I wanna get better. It’s finally hitting me, I need to get my shit together, and do my best to recover.” Sam said honestly, he’d been thinking about it all too much, maybe he had even overthought some stuff, but now things were supposed to get better for him. At least he wanted them to. So far there hadn’t been any symptoms of him getting better, but Sam had been trying to convince himself to be a man. To stand up for himself. He moved his arms a little, making sure that they were tightly wrapped around Quinn, before kissing the top of her head again, “You know, it’s kinda insane that it’s been almost two years since we met. Kinda unbelievable.”
She liked the impression, and it was all Sam could ask for. He grinned like an idiot as she complemented him, knowing that his weekend had just been made. He had prepared an impression, and she adored it. Amazing. “I’m glad.” He said, feeling incredibly happy and lucky. When had he managed to find such a great girl? “I chose that one also because it’s sorta inspiring I think.” Sam wasn’t the best at talking about such things, but he wanted to impress Quinn in some way, “Like, if you’re bird, then I’m one too, I’m like a little bit bigger. But yeah, we’re two birds together.” He had no idea if that actually made any sense, hopefully it did.
They spoke about his internship, and Sam nodded slowly, “I don’t know, Quinn. I missed a lot because of the accident. And I can’t go back to the Universe, they hired someone when I left for London, I also can’t be a waiter or a bartender now…obviously.” He said, thinking about his disability. He watched Quinn getting out of bed as she got ready to get their breakfast, and he smiled a little bit. She really looked beautiful that morning, “Okay, so what do we have here, huh?” The blonde asked as she returned, “That guy was kinda creepy, he looked at us like we’ve been doing some dirty stuff or something.” He said a little bit seriously, a little bit jokingly thinking of the hotel worker.
When Sam opened the door Tina could not be happier to see her best friend, right now she needed some normality in her life and this was exactly the distraction that she needed, not to mention the fact that he had missed seeing her best friend. “Sam!” Tina cheered with a smile that could not be wiped off her face. She gave him a quick high five and gave him a massive hug, just what she really needed right though she promised herself that she would not utter a word of it to him, since Sam and Mike did not have the best friendship in the world along with it just being plain awkward. “I’ve missed you, sorry I haven’t been round just stupid exams held me captive,” she told him,”It is also depressing to think I have seen Jesse more times than I have seen you,” she frowned a little now working that out because that boy was just a magnet for trouble.
She followed him into his apartment placing her bag on the side like she normally did. When he asked her how she was she knew that was a tough question to answer, she tried her best not to show hesitation, “Cartwomen has been doing good- experienced my first ever hangover and I got to say not the best thing in the world,” Tina laughed dryly thinking of the pain, “Other than that laziness, Disney and working to be fair.” She shrugged making her life sound bland as it should be,”What about SuperSam, bet you have been doing better than I have,” Tina grinned at the boy shaking his head to an offer of a drink, “No worries about it Sam I fine for the moment. Right now I just care about spending time with you,” she told him honestly as she just needed to be a dork since that side of her seemed to have been hidden for a while now.
“No worries, I had some tough exams too, you know.” Sam smiled, nodding his head a little, “How did your exams go? I’m sorry I didn’t call you but life’s been crazy. Like super crazy.” He did an awkward thing with his head as they spoke, trying to show he how crazy his life had been. After exams, things had gotten much easier, but during the exams time…Sam had had to focus on books, therapy ,work…it had been a lot. Sam couldn’t help but chuckle a little as Tina mentioned Jesse, “Is he still being mean to you? Cause if so, that’s super uncool, and we gotta do something with that.” He was a little bit protective of Tina, she had been his girlfriend after all, and she still meant a lot to him. Surely he didn’t feel about her like he felt about Quinn, but Tina was also very important. She was more like his sister, and Sam deeply cared about his family.
Sam quirked an eyebrow as they settled in the living room, “Hangover? What did you do? Partying after exams or…?” The blonde asked, a little bit curious about it well…all. Tina had always been that calm, sensitive girl, so imagining her being drunk or hungover sounded so insane, “Me? Comic books, drawing, impressions, Quinn, and yeah…work but that’s not for long.” He added the last words quietly, folding his arms over his chest, and biting on the inside of his cheek a little, “I mean, my internship is almost over.” He explained, knowing that she’d have probably asked about that.
Tina was actually really glad that Sam has text her today, not only was she missing the presence of her dorky superhero best friend, but right now she did need a best friends considering that her other best friend Mike and her were sort of stuck between a rock and a hard place. Though Tina knew that she wouldn’t talk about what had happened with Mike with Sam considering the two boys seemed to loath each other very much for reasons that were still foreign to Tina- though she decided to let them be petty about it because right now Tina just need to be occupied, so what no better way would there be then just hanging out with her partner in crime.
When he text her saying that he was working on a new comic idea and he wanted her to see it, Tina was already getting out of her sweats into something presentable to make her way to see him while the two of them were text arguing. When he told her to bring Toy Story over she felt more excited because she was going to watch the best movie of all time with her best friend and this time it was willingly. She smiled the whole journey to getting to Sam’s her mind already forgotten about Mike. She smiled as she climbed the stairs knocking on the door to his apartment waiting to see Sam and giving him one of her hugs and ready for them to start an another day of just being dorks!
Sam had spent pretty much all day on playing video games. He had done a lot of drawing the day before, and now it was time for some shooting and all that cool stuff. He’d been doing pretty well, he’d even managed to kill that big zombie he’d been struggling to defeat for over an hour, when he finally heard a knock on the door. Hoping that Tina had finally come around, he got on his chair, and wheeled to the door. It was just about time to hang out with his friends, summer had been a little bit boring so far, with Sam staying at home, or going to work sometimes, but his internship was almost over, and damn that was depressing. He definitely needed to do something not to think about that. Knowing that he probably wouldn’t get the job scared him, he wasn’t ready to hear a ‘no’ from someone again. But this afternoon was about him and his friend. Bad things didn’t matter.
“Heyy, there!” Sam raised his hand to give Tina a high five, and then to give her a big hug, “What’s up, Catwoman?” He asked leading her to the living room. They hadn’t seen each other for a while, with exams going on it was hard to have some free time, but now that it was all over, Sam was glad that they could spend some time together again, “Do you want anything to drink?” He asked politely, he kinda managed to learn how to get some stuff for himself from the kitchen, though Sam had to admit that it was still hard. After four months everything had been slightly easier, he had gotten used to his situation, but obviously he wished things were better for him.
Quinn was enjoying being close to Sam. They’d been quite distant to each other since the accident, but now they were finally back on track and able to show each other how they felt properly. They had a whole weekend with no interruption or having to worry about anything other than each other. They’d both been so busy with school and work in the past few weeks, it was crazy how little time they’d had for each other recently, they’d barely eaten dinner together some weeks. But this summer was just for them. “I think that might be a really good idea. It’ll be good to be able to open up to someone about them, you know?” She said with a soft smile, pleased with the progress that Sam was making with not only his physical therapy, but with everything else too. He seemed to be happier. “I think it’ll help too. And I can always come with you and wait in the waiting room while you talk to them.” She said with a smile, always ready to help him when he needed it.
"Good, me too." She grinned shuffling as close to him as she could in their bed. "I’m excited to hear it, I can’t wait for you to show it to me." She grinned, moving her lips with his. She’d missed their mornings that they had spent together like this, and she was glad that they were able to do it once more. They were just there for themselves, and they were going to enjoy every single second before they went back to the chaos of the city. "I missed you too.." She whispered, softly pecking his lips again, just to get the feel of them again. It had been a while since they’d been like this, and she was going to cherish every moment.
Laughing, Quinn took her place back cuddled up with Sam. “We can go and learn to cook as a couple. You know, more than pancakes.” She grinned, knowing that he couldn’t really cook more than the pancakes that she had taught him to make over a year ago. “We could sign up, you know when you’re able to walk again.” She grinned, because she really believed that he was going to get there soon. She laid there for a moment, just listening to the rain on the windows, and closed her eyes. She really was in a happy place, and it seemed like everything was going to get better for the first time in a long time.
“Yeah, I’ve read on the internet that it might help.” Sam said, he’d been doing a lot of research recently, not only because he was bored, but also because he wanted to do something for himself. Instead of going to the gym or running, he just searched for stuff on the internet, “ I feel like the problem’s also in my head. You know with the therapy thing. I don’t have a brain tumor, at least I think so, but someone’s help could be nice. And I’m not saying about just someone, cause I have you, and you’re like…everything.” He rambled, Quinn was probably used to him rambling a little, so he didn’t mind it, he just wanted to get it all off his chest, “It’d be cool if someone who deals with such stuff could help me a bit, you know?”
“You are?” Sam smiled brightly, thinking that he could actually show her the impression now, he could think of some others later, and if she was excited…then he wouldn’t make her wait, “Okay, but firstly…” He trailed off, pointing at his cheek, waiting for the kiss that he totally deserved. It was a sort of a payment for the surprise, “Ready?” He cleared his throat a little, hoping that he wouldn’t mess it up, it’d be a disaster if he did, “If you’re a bird, I’m a bird.” Sam changed his voice a bit, knowing that Quinn liked the actor and the movie so he hoped that she would enjoy the impression, “That…that was Ryan Gosling.” He explained, if she hadn’t noticed, waiting anxiously for her response, cause damn that was important. It was the surprise and he really wanted her to like it. He’d thought a lot about the quote he could use and figured out that Quinn would like this one the most.
Sam put a dreamy smile on his face, “I’d like that. Though I’d probably burn the kitchen or something…” He joked, he wasn’t the best cook in the world, Quinn knew him just too well. A few years ago, would have never signed himself up for something like that, but he was so sure that him and Quinn would have fun, they always did. Noticing Quinn’s closed eyes, he smiled a little, happy that she was enjoying the moment as much as he did. He placed a small kiss on the top of her head, before speaking quietly, “You know, my internship at Marvel is almost over…don’t know what I’m gonna do then.”
Marley didn’t know what to expect out of today. She was going to be hanging out with Sam, who she hadn’t seen in a while. She really didn’t know what he was up to, just like he probably had a few questions himself. Of course, most of them might come out because of the Jake thing, and how she was insistent that he couldn’t be there. The last time she had actually seen Sam probably involved Jake, since the three of them used to hang out sometimes. Marley couldn’t remember the last time with was just her and Sam though, so this would be interesting.
When she knocked on the door, Marley was a bit surprised to see a woman open the door. She was a bit older, and she had some sort of resemblance to Sam, if you really tried looking. Maybe they were related or something? “I- uh. Sam’s friend? I mean, I’m Marley… And it’s a pleasure to meet you, er…” She waited for the woman to introduce herself and gave her a slight smile, still waiting for her to invite her in. Once she did, she was direction of the living room. Marley thanked the woman and went into the living room, seeing Sam sitting on the couch. “Hey there!” she said cheerily, feeling slightly more at ease now that his mom wasn’t hovering. “How’s it going?” Without thinking anything of it, Marley sat down on the couch next to Sam and gave him a small hug.
Mrs. Evans eyed Marley, like she always did when she met Sam’s friends for the first time. “Good afternoon, Marley.” She greeted the girl, trying to be (sort of) nice, just like Sam had asked her to be, “I’m Sam’s mother, nice to meet you.” She extended her hand to greet the girl, and let her inside. “Sam’s waiting for you in the living room.” She informed Marley, before heading to the kitchen. After Quinn had left for the weekend, she wanted to clean the apartment, because to her it was never fully cleaned, the mess was quite disturbing, actually.
“Hey there.” Sam smiled brightly as Marley entered the room, and gave her a big hug. “Wow girl, where have you been?” The blonde asked, turning a little so that he would look at Marley properly, “I’m good, I guess? Well, Quinn’s away for the weekend, so mom’s visiting me, and yeah….you’ve met her.” The boy said, pointing at the wall next to him, somehow letting Marley know that his mother was probably listening to what they were talking about, “How are you? What have you been up to? I’ve been kinda busy, that’s why I have been kinda MIA all the time, but y’know, I’m enjoying the summer right now.” He told the girl, reminding himself that he wanted to ask her about Jake, but he didn’t know how would she react to that, so he hadn’t said anything about it yet.
Quinn was so glad that she had suggested this trip away with Sam, considering what they had been through together recently. Both of them deserved to have some time away from the city, and although the weather was horrible outside the window, it didn’t matter to her. What mattered was that they were able to spend the time together, and enjoy each other’s company. “Good, it’s good to know that those nightmare’s are going away, even for a little bit. I know how wound up you get with them.” She said, stroking his cheek a little with her thumb. She always knew when he’d had the nightmares, especially if she’d heard him mumbling about the accident while they tried to sleep. She didn’t like how much the dreams seemed to bother him, but she had to make sure that she calmed him down in the best way possible.
"Hmm…why don’t we just play it by ear? We can see how the weekend goes and do what we want, when we want." She said with a smile, just enjoying the fact that the two of them had the whole weekend in front of them without any distractions. "Ooh, a new impression!" She grinned, excited for what it might be. She always loved his impressions, and she was glad that he’d been working on one, just for her. "I bet it’s perfect, just like all of the others."
"Yeah, of course I will." She said, before ordering some breakfast down the phone. She wasn’t sure what they really wanted, so she got a variety of things that they could share, that way they couldn’t go wrong. "You’ll be able to make me pancakes soon, you know. You’re getting stronger every time you go to physical therapy. And as soon as you’re able to stand and walk around, I’ll book us into a couples cooking class, how does that sound?" She asked, hoping that her idea was good for them.
Feeling Quinn’s thumb stroking his cheek, Sam smiled softly. He liked the intimate moments they shared together, the ones that were just between them, the little things they did that made it all so much better. He shuffled closer to her nuzzling his nose against hers again, feeling so relaxed, so content, “Yeah, they are kinda tough. I don’t know how to get rid of them, like I’ve been thinking about talking to someone, you know?” He spoke, it was a little bit embarrassing, but he could talk to Quinn about anything, “Like psychologist or something…remember when they mentioned it to us when I was still in the hospital. I don’t know…” The blonde was being completely honest with her, he’d been thinking about mentioning the issue to her for a while, hoping to get some good advice, “Like I was so hesitant bout that at the beginning, but it might help me.”
“I’m good with that.” Sam approved of Quinn’s idea for the day, content with the perspective of spending it all in bed, doing practically nothing. As they spoke about the impression, he couldn’t help but grin, “Yeah, it’s a special one, cause it was created for you. I’ll show it to you later…” He teased, pressing his lips to hers again, and kissing her once more. He hadn’t kissed her like that for so long, it felt so good, like nothing had changed, like nothing had happened during those months. It was just the two of them and their world. He kept moving his lips against hers, and pulled away just when he started to become a little bit breathless, “I missed you…” He said quietly against her lips, resting his forehead against her once more.
Sam listened to Quinn ordering some food for their breakfast, and he had just realized how hungry he was. He usually tried to eat healthy, but some things had changed after his accident. He had to look after himself which made him change his eating habits a little bit. Sam couldn’t help but chuckle as he heard Quinn’s idea, “The hell is couples cooking class?” He asked jokingly, his arms wrapping around her again, “I hope so though…one day.” He said quietly, imagining himself during those classes. Damn, that’d be a disaster, but it could also be a lot of fun, right?
"Oh definitely, it really has passed by in a blur," Rachel agreed, because it still didn’t feel like five minutes since she had moved to New York as the shy young girl from Lima, with dreams bigger than she was, and now she was here, almost halfway through her time at college and she felt like her world had changed completely. She barely recognised the girl she’d once been, knowing how much she’d changed in the last two years, a part of her wondered whether if she looked back again in two years time, would she still be the same person, or would she have drastically changed again? She really couldn’t tell you. Her smile brightened however as Sam continued to enthuse about the diner where she worked, "Yeah, exactly. I mean it gives me something to work towards, you know? I get to see them everyday, strive towards achieving my dream, it’s exciting when you look at it that way,"
She smiled as Sam spoke about the comic book that he was working on, which again Rachel didn’t really understand, she’d never understood the world of comic books, but she was happy that he had something to work towards, especially after what Quinn had told her. She was pleased that Sam was getting himself out there again. “Wow, that sounds…interesting?” she offered, not really sure if it was or not, but she figured that interesting was the way to go, “So it’s going to be another superhero comic book, I know they aren’t really my thing, but…aren’t there already like, a ton of superhero comic books out there?” she asked, not really understanding it too much.
“Yeah, it’s really insane. The city is awesome and got used to being here. It’s cool.” Sam admitted honestly, talking about the time passing by made him think of some cool quotes said by his favourite actors, which usually leaded him to showing some of his impressions. He wasn’t sure if Rachel was a fan of them, so he didn’t say anything. “That’s awesome. It’s like me and Marvel. I gotta see it all every day, and I guess it’s sorta like a good motivation.” He agreed with the girl, every time he saw the awesome comics people made at Marvel, it made him want to survive the school, and the tough times just to get to that point, the point to where he had been heading for years, “The diner sounds so cool though, me and Quinn should visit you there one day.” The blonde said, he’d love to see the place where Rachel worked it, and maybe to just admire the Broadway area, he’d never really focused on it that much, but it surely had its own magic.
As Rachel admitted that his comic book sounded interesting, he smiled, “I can show it to you when it’s done.” He offered, trying to be cool, besides he always loved sharing his art with the others. He also made a mental note to talk about it to Tina, they were always goofy together while speaking about comic books, he was pretty sure that the Asian girl would enjoy it, “Yeah, there are, but each one of them is unique in its own way, you know?” Sam answered Rachel’s question, sort of excited that he could talk about the things he loved doing, “Like they are so different, and that’s why people love them.”
Quinn had been waiting for this. Waiting for the days that they could just spend their time doing whatever it was that they wanted to do, without worrying about school or finals. They were free, at least for a few months, and that was just what she needed. It didn’t seem like that long ago that they were in their summer vacation, the last time that they really spent together before Sam headed off to England for months. But that was all in the past, and she didn’t want to think about it since they weren’t there to dwell on the past. They were there to have a lovely weekend, just the two of them.
The blonde chuckled softly at the notion that Sam was sleeping with his eyes open, since she wouldn’t be surprised if that was a secret talent of his. “You know, I actually slept really well. I think I was letting go of all the stress that I had, and managed to get a really good nights sleep.” She smiled, glad that she’d managed to get a proper night’s sleep, rather than her normal battle with sleep whenever she was in a place that she hadn’t slept in before. “It made a nice change to sleeping for only a couple of hours.” She said with a soft smile.
"Me either… It’s definitely been a long time since we did this." She smiled, enjoying the soft kisses that the two of them shared. With everything that had happened in the past few months, it was good to feel like there was some kind of normality about everything. "A surprise? What kind of surprise?" She asked, although she was excited all the same to find out what it was. "Breakfast sounds good to me too." I’ll order some room service, so that we don’t have to leave the room to get food." She smiled, kissing him once more, before rolling over to get the hotel room phone so that she could order a feast for the two of them to have for their breakfast.
It had been a year since their previous summer together, it was quite unbelievable that time flied so fast. Their trip to Hawaii had been amazing, and Sam could easily say that it had been the best summer he had ever had, he was pretty sure that this summer wouldn’t change his mind considering well, the state he was currently in. “I’m glad. You deserve to get as much sleep as you want, you’ve worked so hard recently.” Sam told Quinn, smiling a little, “I slept well too. When I focus on other stuff I tend to have my nightmares a little bit less often.” He confessed, knowing that he could tell Quinn about his nightmares. She’d woken up a few times when he had had them, and she had always known how to calm him down whenever the bad dreams were bothering him.
“Yeah, I kinda wanna make the most of this weekend. What do you wanna do? Aside from staying in bed of course.” Sam said, moving slightly closer towards Quinn, and looking into her gorgeous eyes again. As she spoke about the surprise, he chuckled, “Well, I can say that it’s an impression. A new one, I’ve been preparing it for you.” He told her, incredibly proud of his idea, a little bit anxious if she would like it or not. He really wanted her to like it, and was curious about her reaction.
As Quinn rolled over to call the room service, Sam sighed contently. “Are you gonna get it when it arrives?” It was more a rhetorical question, because it would be kinda hard for him to get their breakfast, but he just wanted to ask, “I wish I could make you pancakes in the morning, you know? I miss cooking as weird as it sounds.” He confessed, resting his head on his pillow again, and closing his eyes for a second. He knew he could be honest with her and that she wouldn’t judge him for saying that.
