((Oh, well thanks then.))
(For now, since the mood is killed, I think I'm just gonna skip us over all of that and head right into the next morning.)
Jewel whimpered, tossing and turning in her sleep as a nightmare played out. She whimpered again, louder as her muscles twitched. "Cole..." She whispered, still asleep.
((Okay... I'll write better next time.))
Cole woke up and found Jewel turning and tossing around. Seeing her like this made Cole worry. After a minute he tried to wake her up. "Jewel, wake up... Are you okay?"
Jewel whimpered and opened her eyes after a moment, tears starting to stream. "Cole...?"
"I'm right here." Cole calmed Jewel down. "It's all okay."
Jewel hugged him and pressed her face to his chest, whimpering. "Just a dream...right?"
"Yes, it's all a dream." Cole whispered into her ear. "Everything's fine."
Jewel sniffled, closing her eyes. "I love you..."
"I love you too," Cole replied.
Jewel took a deep breath and let it out slowly, trying to calm herself. "Thank you..."
"You're welcome." Cole said. He put his arms around her and locked his hands together, "you'll never get out of my grasp."
Jewel smiled weakly. "I love you so much. I hope I never leave."
"Exactly," Cole smiled, "you won't ever leave me nor will I ever leave you."
Then Cole's phone ringed. Cole walked up and searched his pants for it. After finding it, Cole anwsered the call, "hello?"
Jewel got up and scampered to him, wrapping her arms around him and listening in, but trying to make it seem like she was being innocent and clingy.
Cole put his free arm around Jewel as she wrapped herself around him. He was listening to the phone and suddenly he made an "oh shi.t I'm screwed face." Cole closed the phone and he sat on the bed. "My family is coming over to see me..... They're less than thirty minutes from here... They could've told me..........."
"So I guess by the cursing this is a bad thing..." Jewel said slowly. "Cole, what's bad about them coming? I mean besides me not wanting to deal with meeting more people..."
"They'd never understand why I have a girl living with me." Cole paced back and forth. "They'd never...."
"They'd never know there's a girl living with you." Jewel shrugged. "Say I'm your girlfriend and I was visiting and decided to stay at the news they were coming. As for my stuff, just keep it hidden."
