Here For Me

“Hayden…are you really here?” I asked absentmindedly.

“If you can ask a silly question like that, I think you’re fine now. I’ll take you back,” he replied before loosening his arms from around my body.

I stared up into his face although I knew that my face must look like a big mess right now with my eyes puffy, my nose red and my lips swollen from crying. However, I still wanted to see his face up close. Hayden stared down my face before he placed a large hand on top of my head and started patting my head.

“You should go back and rest,” Hayden said.

He stood up and the next thing I knew, I was being carried in his arms. I gasped in surprise before wrapping my arms around his neck. Hayden smiled down a little at me and I started relaxing in his arms. I felt so tired and weak, being pampered like this didn’t feel bad at all.
