Title: Moving Forward part 2
Summary: Tobin struggles as her love for Alex gets bigger and bigger, with ups and downs.
“So… Why do you want me to come with you exactly?” I asked her still confused about it all as we walked out of the hotel.
“Because, you probably have questions for me, and I’ll be glad to answer them,” she giggled holding my hand tighter.
“Man she knows me so well,” I thought to myself as we kept on walking.
“You’re right, I do. Question number one, do you love me back?” I asked. By the time I finished asking the question, she was already smiling.
“I do love you Tobin Heath, but,” she replied, stopped walking, looked me into the eyes, and let go of my hand.
“Oh no. What was I thinking? Alex Morgan loving me back? That’s too good to be true.” I panicked in my head.
“But what?” I asked, my heart completely dropping, but all she did was give me a blank stare.
“I’m not sure if you actually love me back Tobin Heath,” she giggled breaking her blank stare.
“You’re going to be the death of me,” I said relieved, as she reached out her hand, and I took it.
We continued to walk for a long time, but loosing daylight made us head back. When we got back to the hallway I had to ask her that was in the back of my mind the whole time.
“What are we going to do about us?” I asked, worried about her answer.
“We are going to see how it goes, then when we get back to the states, we will see if we want this or not.” She answered staring into my eyes.
“I think that is a wonderful plan,” I laughed as we headed to the elevator.
Seconds which seemed like minutes went by when we were in the elevator, when Alex moved closer to me.
“Yes?” I asked unaware of what she wanted to do.
“So you really do love me a lot huh?” She asked me, she was so close to me, that if I moved, we would kiss.
“Yes I do Alex Morgan,” I smiled, standing still.
“Then come here,” She giggled.
Just like that, we were kissing. She pushed me up against the wall wanting to kiss me more, but the elevator thought different. Without her lips parting from mine, she reached over and pressed the number one. We continued this for about 5 times, going from the highest floor, to the lowest. We never let go each other. Alex holding me made me feel complete and safe at the same time.
“Tobin Heath, I am so tired, can I see you tomorrow?” She asked me, with her head on my shoulder.
“Yes you can,” I smiled putting my arms around her.
“Then I’ll see you tomorrow,” she said, then kissed me softly one last time.
“Goodnight,” I replied walking to my room.
I fell asleep fairly easily, knowing that everything was falling into place.
The next day I woke to Amy right in front of my face grinning like a mad man.
“What the-“I said, but she already cut me off.
“You came home late! Were you with Alex? Did something happen? Tell me!” Amy screamed joyfully.
“Yes I was with Alex, and yes, something did happen!” I said back mocking her joy as I sat up.
“Oh my god! What happened!?!” She asked very intrigued.
“We sort of kissed,” I mumbled, but she still heard it, and was grinning already.
“I’m so happy for you! Now I’m going to go out for breakfast so if you want to bring Baby Horse over you have 45 minutes!” She said jokingly and headed out the door.
“You’re crazy A-Rod!” I screamed back at her, and then collapsed on the bed thinking about Alex.
I heard a knock at the door, and got up to get it. My heart skipped a beat when I saw Alex with her perfect smile.
“Good morning Tobin Heath,” she giggled as I opened up the door.
“Morning Alex Morgan,” I replied smiling.
“Breakfast?” She asked as walked into the room, still smiling.
“Yeah sure, I’m starving!” I said as I headed out to the door.
“No no, we order room service,” she bubbled as she pulled me back into the room.
“I wouldn’t mind that at all,” I winked as Alex flipped through the menu and ordered 3 things.
“I know you wouldn’t,” she said soothingly as she embraced me and kissed me on top of the head.
The food came 10 minutes later, and it took us 5 minutes to eat, so then we had 30 minutes do to whatever we wanted to.
“I wish I could go back to sleep,” Alex said as she fell on the bed next to me.
“Maybe you can,” I smiled putting my arm around her.
“I think I will then,” she said softly as she rested her head on my chest. I rubbed her head as she started to fall asleep.
“I love you Tobin Heath. So much,” she said sleepily. It gave me a moment to soak that in. Alex Morgan. Loving me. So much.
“I love you too Alex Morgan.” I whispered, and kissed her head.
We then fell asleep like babies.
