WIP

"

Rosabelle hits the snooze button on her alarm. She rolls over into her boyfriends arms and closes her eyes. But just as she is about to fall back asleep her alarm shrills again. 'I dont want to get up today,' she moans. 'I want to sleep.'

'Okay,' says her boyfriend, 'Sweet dreams,' and he kisses her head.

She punches his arm sleepily 'Don't be silly. I have to go to work. '

But she hits the snooze again.


Five minutes pass.

The alarm beeps wearily.

She groans again and rubs her face against his chest. 'I don't want to go to worrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrk.'

'Okay,' says her boyfriend, 'Sweet dreams,' and he kisses her head.

She punches him grumpily. 'Don't be silly.'

Sitting up on the side of the bed she rubs her eyes. 'I wish I didn't have to go. I wish you were the boss,' she says.

 

Rosabelle gets home from work at six. 'F**k I had a bad day.'

'F**k,' repeats her boyfriend. 'You don't like me cursing but you can?'

'That's different!' she yells angrily. 'I'm swearing because I'm angry. You swear because you like it.'

She storms off to the bedroom and cries. He follows her in and sits next to her licking the tears that stream down her face. 'Don't cry,' he whispers.

'Don't boss me!' she says angrily pushing him away.

'Okay,' he says and he kisses her head and cuddles her instead.

 

Rosabelle opens up her laptop after dinner. 'I don't want to study,' she sighs. 'I'm too tired.'

'Okay,' says her boyfriend, 'Sweet dreams,' and he kisses her head.

She leans over and bites his arm  softly. 'Don't be silly. I have to study. '

'Okay,' says her boyfriend, and he kisses her head.

'I wish you were the boss,' she says. 'I wish I didn't have to study.'

'Me too,' he says and he kisses her head and cuddles her against his chest where she falls asleep in less than a minute.

Bit rubbish and wafflish but I thought I'd share anyway.

A very relatable story......

My first impression is that this poor girl is working way too hard and despite his moments of slight affection, her boyfriend seems way too chilled to truly bother with her concerns. It is all well and good to give a hug and kiss when someone is under duress, but sometimes it takes just a little more than that. Real love and concern constitutes a deeper level of care and tenderness.

This is a different type of story to your usual work. A kind of day in the life piece, where life is not all wine and roses. And you captured that essence perfectly.

Well written as always.

Very cute. Very sweet. In these sort of situations, I'm sure many of us would want to be like her boyfriend. We would love for our sweethearts to not have to stress about so much, but unfortunately, they have to. Though to an extent, that would be very unhealthy for said sweethearts' lives. We would be enabling them to not do important things. Sometimes love isn't protecting people from the world, but helping them cope with it. I love how much realism and unspokenness exists in this story. Short and seemingly simple, but surprisingly deep when I think about it.

i like reading about these two characters' relationship. Rosabelle seems to be conflicted with several things (don't want to get up but then gets up; doesn't want to work but then works; doesn't like bad language but uses it herself; doesn't want to study but then studies). it reminded me of some quote that is something like "life is 90 percent maintenance." and then at the end of the story it seems like she got what she wanted: to cuddle and fall asleep with her boyfriend.

what's interesting to me about the boyfriend is that on everything but the cursing he says "okay," as if he has tried to respond in other ways to be supportive but saying "okay" is the only thing that works (and he doesn't get yelled at for) and it maintains their relationship. funny how he hasn't learned to say that regarding cursing though! i somehow think that if he was the boss he wouldn't tell her "okay," he'd tell her to go to work!

it was a cute story. i enjoyed reading this. it put a smile on my face.
