"Are you sure you aren’t hot," he asked with a wink at her, looking a bit excited and bouncing slightly in his chair. He had missed talking to her, just talking to her. He loved her, and that was all that mattered. As long as she was in his life, he didn’t have to worry. He smiled slight. “A big hug is exactly what I need," he said softly, ruffling his hair again. He noted her nervous sleeve tugging and raised an eyebrow. “What… like, it’s good news, right," he asked, a bit nervous. He didn’t know if he could handle losing her without going off the deep end.
She rolled her eyes sarcastically, laughing quietly. “Okay, maybe a little hot,” The younger agreed. It was safe to say that she was never as happy on the weeks she couldn’t speak with her long term boyfriend. “Yeah, yeah, it’s really good news. I mean, I think it’s good news,” Tay started, choosing her words carefully. She picked at the hem of her shirt, looking down at her lap. She loved him, and that very last thing Tay wanted was to say the wrong thing and make him angry or upset. “Alex, we’re going to have a baby,” She said, looking up with a smile.
The perk of going into the army was that every minute with Tay was suddenly more precious. Maybe that was a good enough reason to stay in the army if nothing else. He was starting to appreciate his girlfriend more and more than ever. He smiled when he saw her, fixing his sweaty hair once again. “Sweaty and hot and getting a real work out. How’s life over there,” Alex asked with a soft smile on his face. “I wish I could hug you right now.”
"Not as hot, not as sweaty, but I have been working out," Tay laughed, brushing part of her hair behind her ears. Her smile grew at his words, just hearing his voice was enough to leave her feeling elated. "When you come home, I’m going to give you the biggest hug ever, just to make up for all the missed ones," She told him. The dark haired girl nervously tugged at her sleeves, biting her lip before she spoke. "And, I have something really important to tell you.." Tay trailed off.
Alex was in his fatigues, a bit exhausted from another day working out in the field. He hadn’t known how long he had spent working but at least he was able to finally rest. He sat down in front of the computer, eager to see his girlfriend of a year again. He ran a hand through his hair, pulling the jacket off, causing his biceps to ripple slightly. He grinned when he saw Tay on the camera, ruffling his hair again. “Hey there, pretty girl,” he said softly with a slightly eager grin.
Tay had been eagerly waiting at home all day from a call from Alex-she didn’t know when it was going to happen, but she knew that it would be the highlight of her week. She heard the chime echo through the small apartment, running to pick up. Her lips pulled a smile when the signal went through, as as the two hadn’t seen each other in what seemed like forever. “Hi, baby,” The younger said with a wave, “How ya doin’ out there?”
“I don’t know, maybe you decided to do what was right for a change,” Tay said sarcastically. In all the years she had known Alex, he never was one to stick to the rules. That’s why she wasn’t surprised at all when the two had started up a relationship of sorts, minus the romance that came with a real one. However, Tay liked the fact that it was wrong, it made her feel rebellious. In her mind, she wouldn’t be putting a stop to this unless he did first.
Alex put on a faux hurt face. “Oh, Jardine, I thought we were friends,” he said with a small pout before cracking a grin. Tay had a point: he never did stick to the rules. Wasnt that how he and Swift met in the first place? He just walked right over to her and introduced himself before asking her out. Then security yanked him away before she answered. Maybe that was why guilt occasionally bubbled up over what he was doing with Tay. “Anyway, what do you wanna do first?”
"Oh, I’m sorry. If only I could make it up to you," Tay said with a false tone of sympathy. With her words she smiled up to him, taking hold of his arm. "I dunno. We always do the same thing when we see each other, so lets do something you want for a change," The younger said, racking her brain for ideas. It was dark and late at night, there weren’t many options for the two, but it got sort of boring to repeat the same thing all the time.
Alex smiled the minute he saw Tay. It was just two friends fucking around, but hey, he liked who he was fucking around with. It was wrong, it wasnt okay, but it was fun as hell. And the possible consequences made it that much more fun. “Well, Jardine, why wouldn’t I come,” he asked. The minute Tay said she didn’t want to risk it anymore would be when Alex would cut it off. He’d go back to being content with being Taylor Swift’s boyfriend, the one that lasted for six months. And maybe it was wrong to betray Swift’s trust but… he never really did grow up.
"I don’t know, maybe you decided to do what was right for a change," Tay said sarcastically. In all the years she had known Alex, he never was one to stick to the rules. That’s why she wasn’t surprised at all when the two had started up a relationship of sorts, minus the romance that came with a real one. However, Tay liked the fact that it was wrong, it made her feel rebellious. In her mind, she wouldn’t be putting a stop to this unless he did first.
Alex grinned as he ruffled his hair to perfection, his stomach turning over. Tay, Taylor… it was the same thing, right? And yeah, he knew that they were different people but he liked them both. They were both fun to be around, both so very nice… and of course, he knew if Swift found out, she’s be furious. Which is why he was making sure she never found out. He made it down to the park where Tay was, grateful that more people cared where his girlfriend was than were he was. “Jardine! Hey there,” he said, waving over to her.
Tay knew that the seeing Alex on the side while also with Blake wasn’t right, and she was also full aware that her boyfriend would be crushed. But, it was the knowledge that she was doing something wrong made the entire situation much more exhilarating. Upon hearing her name called in the darkness, the brunette let a small smile grow across her face. “Hey, Gaskarth. I’m so glad you came again,” She told him. In all honesty, Tay was scared that he would realise what the consequences of this would be, and stop coming to see her.
