''We can do this. How hard can it be?'' Kenna says as she takes another sip of her wine before closing the door behind us with her foot, leaving us all by ourselves in a suite. ''We're both adults in this situation. We're not kids anymore, '' She continues to speak.

''Exactly. I'm not doubting us in any way possible, '' I reply. My eyes wander around to look at her as she chuckles, showing off her perfectly straight teeth; knowing Kenna, the only way she would act like this is when she's drunk. She's never good in handling alcohol and that's maybe because she doesn't drink much in her past years.

She giggles which causes both of my eyebrows to furrow. Kenna would never giggle because she's just not?that?type. To my surprise, she starts to wrap her arms around my neck before pulling me closer as she leans her head back into laughters, ''I mean. . . come on, Aidan. It's not like we haven't done this before—we've been with different people. You've been with a lot of different people and you're very experienced, '' She runs her index finger across my cheek.

''Why, thank you, Kenna. Women do tend to compliment my skills, '' My lips curve up into a smile as we start to walk towards the middle of the suite. ''I'm surprised to see you admit how experienced I am when it comes to things like this, '' I add, slowly.

With both of her blue eyes looking deeply into mine, ''Don't bring up other women in front of me. Starting from now. . . I'll be one to judge, '' She smirks, cutely.

Most of the time, drunk women are very unpleasing to my sight but for some reason, Kenna's drunk state appears much more pleasing. The way her eyes glint with calmness as she shows her true self, it's something I don't mind seeing every day because she's much more at ease and stress-free than she has always been.

''Why is that?'' My voice came out more like a whisper.

She glances down at my lips as she cups my face, causing myself to place both of my hands on her waist. ''Do you see this ring on my finger? Till death do us part, baby.'' The words slip out of her mouth which causes both of us to laugh, uncontrollably as we let go of each other.

Her laughter seem to fill the silent room as she leans her head back and slowly letting herself drop onto the ground, running her fingers through her loosely curled hair. My body has somehow reduced the amount of stress from the sudden outburst of laughters, letting ourselves lay lose.

''We're terrible at role-playing. Oh my god, '' She continues to laugh as she places a hand on her cheek, feeling warmth radiating.

That's another fact about Kenna, whenever she's drunk or has too much to laugh about, her cheeks would warm up. She'll start to feel warmth radiating from her cheeks and they start to turn slightly red—it's one of the things that she hates about herself but I'm very fond of it. She thinks of it as. . . a flaw when I think of it as adorable.

''It's now or never. We have to do it, '' I say and she looks up at me, our eyes are staring deeply into one another. Just like that, I'm already slowly making my way towards her without breaking our gaze and as soon as I'm close enough, I let our faces remain inches apart.

''I'm asking you again. . . do you want this?'' I ask, my eyes glancing down at her lips as they pucker to the front before curving up into a smile. ''Do you?really?want this? There's no turning back from what we're going to do, '' I add, leaning closer and closer near her neck.

She purposely brush her nose against mine, ''What's the point of waiting, anyway? Sooner or later, it's going to happen. It might as well happen now, '' She whispers, pulling onto my tie.

''Rock, paper, scissors!'' We say in unison and our eyes widen at the result before looking down at our hands. The result shows it clear. . . the winner is?me. Kenna was defeated by a pair of scissors as she was a piece of paper which causes her to groan and running towards the bed in which I quickly catch up, not wanting her to reach it before me.

''No!'' She exclaims as she bumps onto the nearest sofa which causes her to groan in pain while I make my run straight towards the bed, jumping up and letting my body fall before letting out a breath of relief.

''Victory is mine!'' I grin, watching her making her way towards me as she continues to pant. She has her left hand on her waist while the other starts to rub onto her thigh which had received the impact from bumping onto the sofa. ''You can sleep on the couch, '' I pretend to flip my hair which causes her to roll her eyes, in annoyance.

''Are you seriously making me sleep on the couch? Aidan, it's too ha

st which leaves me to open my eyes, ''Are you serious?'' I try to loosen her grip.

''Kenna, you're choking me!'' I say a little bit louder and she starts to open her eyes, looking directly at me before realising that she has been pulling me in a tight grip.

''Why were you hugging me?'' She groans, pushing me slightly.

''For?fuck's sake, you were the one hugging me. No, you were trying to kill me—do you even know how tight you were gripping onto me? God?damn?it, we haven't been married for twenty-four hours yet and you're already trying to kill me.'' I mutter before pulling onto the covers.

After not receiving any respond from her, I begin to turn my body to the left in order to face her and see that she has fallen asleep but seconds before I can turn around, she has already grabbed onto my hand; pulling it closer towards her chest, not showing any signs of letting go.

''Kenna, you need to let go of my hand.'' I say but she continues to remain asleep, causing me to sigh deeply before poking onto her forehead. Without me realising, I'm slowly falling back to sleep—completely forgetting having our fingers entwined.

Everything seems to past surprisingly fast. Dreams are cut short and my body is somehow restless. Maybe, it's because I'm not much of a heavy sleeper like Kenna and she just keeps on pushing me or even pulling me close towards her. It's quite a surprise, really. . . I never really notice her sudden ways of sleeping like this when I fell asleep with her on the sofa in her apartment but now, she's like a different person.

Slowly opening my eyes, I start to take a few deep breaths before turning to look at Kenna; seeing her sleeping soundly beside me. My eyes wander down to her face and suddenly realise, a slight drool near her lips which makes me lose interest in staring at her much longer.

''Wake up, '' I pat onto her butt, causing her to open her eyes.

''What time is it?'' She asks, her voice deep and a little bit husky.

Luckily for her, she had a good night's sleep while mine was terrible. Don't get me wrong, I would prefer some cuddling once in awhile but what she did to me was not cuddling. She was choking me until I was at a point, I can barely breathe.

''Time to wipe off that drool and take a shower, '' I reply, stretching my arms as soon as I'm off the bed before glancing at her direction, again; seeing her wiping away the drool from her lips as she drops her head back onto the bed—groaning.

''You know what. . . I can't believe I'm saying this but I had an awful night. You were a terrible person in bed and I should've let you sleep on the couch instead of on the bed. Maybe, it would be better if I didn't accept your offer to sleep on the bed with you.'' I start to speak which causes her to furrow her eyebrows, trying to pick up the pieces.

''So. . . it was a bad wedding night?'' She raises an eyebrow, her eyes squinting.

''Terrible. Horrible, '' I think back of what happened last night as I shiver, causing her to curve her lips into a smirk; completely enjoying my suffering as I walk towards the bathroom.
