mundane...but so good
The light in the room shines bright blue, as we sit on the couch, watching TV. Snuggled up together under a big pled blanket. She smiles at every joke in the movie and bursts out laughing before the punch line even starts. We have seen this movie a million times, but it’s her favorite, so I let her. Happy to just lie here, next to her. She turns and smiles towards me. A wide grin on her face, that of a guilty person - for making me watch this movie again and feeling smug about it. I shake my head and stare at her, lifting an eyebrow in a disapproving way. Her grin stretches out even more.
Oh, you know you love me, babe - she says with self-satisfaction - I am the best thing that happened to you, since that fiasco with your last girlfriend...
I snatch a pillow and hit her over the head, messing up her perfect hair and turning it into an electrified haystack. She screams out and throws it back with perfect aiming, hitting me right in the face.
Hey, I didn’t hit you that hard! - I shout out and jump off the couch and run to the kitchen. As I do this, I hear some rustling in the living room.
Jane? Jane! Don’t you dear... - I sprint back to the room with a glass of water, ready to throw it at her - oh come one, you wouldn’t...
There’s a shrieking sound even before I can do anything. The noise truly ear-piercing, shattering my eardrums.
Fine! I won’t, you win! - I say in defeat and she calms down instantly. Her smile turning from pleased to sneaky.
I always win.
She says proudly and sits back down on the couch. Picking the blanket and snuggling back on the soft cushions. I shake my head again and join her, as she lifts the side of the material and pats the pillow, sending me a seductive stare. I roll my eyes, but reach her in just seconds. Never the one to refuse a invitation.
If I didn’t love you so much, I would throw that smirk right off your face.
I sit down and she puts her arms around me, as I turn the movie back on. Sneaking a kiss or two, just before Patrick Swayze can pick up Jenifer Gray in the air and sing to her, that he had the time of his life.
So glad that I found her. She makes me smile when everything else goes wrong. She supports me through all the bad choices that I tend to make. Making me believe that even if our life tends to be hard and full of regrets, there is something worth the while.
She’s my best friend and I love her to pieces. She’s crazy, drives me insane half of the time... and I love her even more for that.
