"What! When? Are you okay?" Instantly Naya's arms found themselves wrapped around her friend. "So the muffins, are you upset about it or realising you still love him and all that because you always make muffins when you like someone and you're unsure about how they feel."
Heather returned the hug and whispered in Naya's ear. "I'm in love."
Naya thanked God that they were wrapped up in a hug so that Heather didn't see her heart break in her eyes. She never would have stepped over the line but hearing that Heather was single gave her a small glimpse of hope. "Then you should call him honey because making muffins this early in the morning, not good."
Heather pulled back and looked at Naya as she shook her head. "I have nothing to say to him."
"Oh?" Who have you fallen for this time Hemo, you little love machine." The blonde couldn't help but smile at her best friend.
"Just a person, with a name, who's gorgeous and beautiful and so incredibly funny." Naya sat listening with a smile on her face even though all she wanted to do was curl up into a ball and go back to sleep.
Heather laid her head in Naya's lap and felt the girl run her hands thru her hair. "You don't have to tell me who it is if you don't want to, right now anyways but I can assure that whoever it is would be crazy not to feel the exact same way about you." Turning her head Heather looked up at Naya and smiled from ear to ear.
"Who knew you were so sweet at almost 5 in the morning?"
"The better question is who knew I could actually speak this early in the morning. I'm just glad we have the day off tomorrow." Heather nodded and closed her eyes, Naya's fingers softly running thru her hair still. "So when did you and Taylor break up and why didn't you tell me?"
Turning once more, this time Heather buried her face into Naya's hip. "About three weeks ago, I just wasn't feeling it anymore. I didn't say anything because I didn't really want to talk about it, it was what it was but I wanted to be absolutely sure that I was doing the right thing." The blondes hand was now running up and down the brunettes leg.
"Makes sense but you know I'm always here for you, even when you're wishy washy about things." Naya felt the girl nod on her leg which caused her to smile and lean back against the pillows. "I can't wait for tour this summer so we can cuddle all the time." She felt Heather smile. "We best be getting our cuddle on all summer Hemo, I don't care if you have a new boyfriend by then."
They both laughed and Heather leaned up. "Do you mind if I take a quick shower I'm hoping it'll help me sleep."
Naya feigned hurt. "What are you saying? That I don't help you sleep?"
"You can help me sleep a different way, you know what they say." Heather winked at her before getting up and she could have sworn she saw Naya's cheeks turn a little pink. "Ten minutes, tops." She promised before walking into the washroom.
After about five minutes of waiting for Heather, Naya decided she didn't want to fall asleep without the girl so she got up and headed for the kitchen. Biting the inside of her lip she stood and looked at the dishes that were left from Heather's late night baking. It was only then that she realised she was barely clothed but decided it was too early for her to care. She ran the hot water and let it fill up the sink while she pressed play on Heather's ipod that was still in its docking station from earlier.
Not long after that Heather emerged from the washroom only to find Naya absent. She smiled as she cracked the door open just slightly and looked into the kitchen, she couldn't see much but she could hear the girl softly singing. Walking over to her bedside table the blonde picked up her phone and called her other best friend and room mate.
"It's 5 in the morning this better be important."
"You're ass still hasn't gone to bed ya drunken party animal." The girl on the other end of the line laughed. "I told Naya tonight that Taylor and I broke up."
"Did you tell her that you want her sweet lady kisses?"
Heather laughed. "No, she has no idea but right now she's doing my dishes so I guess that'll be a good reward."
"You can do it Heather, you've been talking about it non stop for three weeks, go get your girl. Yes this is the extent of the pep talk you're getting right now because I'm going to bed. Love you see you soon."
"Love you too drunky." With that both girls hung up the phone and Heather turned her phone off before putting it back on the bedside table.
Quietly she opened her bedroom door once again and crept down the hall. Once she was close enough she wrapped her arms around Naya's waist and kissed the top of her shoulder. "Put your arms around me, what you feel is what you are and what you are is beautiful." She sang the line softly in her.
Setting the last bowl into the rack Naya smiled and turned around in Heathers arms, wrapping her arms around the blonde's neck. "Do you want to get married and run away?" The brunette sang back with a smile. It was then that theirs eyes caught and neither good look away. "Took you longer then ten minutes hun."
Finally blinking, Heather shrugged. "You didn't have to do the dishes you know."
"I know but I wanted to stay awake so I figured why not." Naya let out a soft yawn that made Heather's heart melt.
"Come on, let's get your cute butt back into bed." The Latina could only nod as she felt the blonde's fingers intertwine with her own.
Five minutes later they were back in bed. Heather laid down on her side and faced Naya who was laying on her back, arms around her best friend. For her part Heather had her arm over Naya's waist and was softly scratching up and down her side. "Why are you starring at me?" Naya asked, eyes still closed but a smile evident on her face.
"Thinking what? It's too early to be thinking."
Heather was silent for a moment. "Wondering how you'd react to something." Her voice was soft and gentle, and Naya realised she wasn't joking around like she normally did.
"What would that something be?" The brunette opened her eyes and looked at Heather. Without another word the blonde leaned in and softly brushed her lips of the hers. It was soft and sweet and it didn't last nearly long enough. Not even long enough for Naya to register what was really going on and kiss the girl back.
"That" Heather whispered, her lips barely grazing over Naya's as she spoke.
Naya let her body take over, she finally gave in to something she had been pondering about for the longest time. Their lips met again and this time the kiss was filled with more hunger and passion. Naya felt Heathers hand grip onto her hip as she ran the tip of her tongue over the blondes bottom lip before softly biting it, pulling it back ever so gently. She let go and placed a soft peck on the girls lips before she pulled back to look into crystal blue eyes.
"Wow." Was all Heather could say at first. "It's you," she finally managed to say causing Naya to snap out of her gaze.
"Me?" It came out as barely a whisper. Heather nodded and drew a heart on Naya's stomach.
"That's why I didn't tell you about Taylor right away, I didn't want to hurt you like that. It wasn't that I was unsure of how I felt about you, I was unsure of how you felt about me and I needed to know that I was making the right decision for both of us. I would never want to jeopardize our friendship."
"What made you go for it?" Naya ran her fingers up and down Heather's back, pulled the blanket up a little higher to keep the girl warm.
"I couldn't resist anymore. Watching you sleep, in a total non creeper way, I just, you're so beautiful, firey yet peaceful. Then you're voice cracked after I told you about Taylor and something in me just knew. By the way, you taste like blueberries."
The Latina let out one of her hearty laughs. "I may have snuck a muffin while you were in the shower."
"Definitely glad I made those muffins." Heather smiled before leaning in and kissing Naya again.
"Mmm, me too." Naya's eyes closed, the time finally taking a toll on her body.
"I have wanted to kiss you for so long." Heather admitted as she laid her head back down on Naya's chest.
Moving her hand up Naya touched Heathers chin with the tips of her fingers, lifting her chin. She kissed the tip of her nose first before placing another soft kiss on Heather's lip. "Those blueberry muffins were good but nothing could taste better than you."
"In that case, I better be getting lots of kisses from now on." Heather kissed Naya's collar bone as she felt the girl hold her closer. "But for now, we should get some sleep, I've kept you up long enough and I want to have as much as energy as I can when we wake up so I can kiss you all day."
Placing a kiss on the top of the blondes head Naya nodded and mumbled something that Heather took to be some sort of agreeance. "This time don't even think about getting up, the bed was so cold without you in it with me."
"I promise." With that both girls drifted off to sleep. Both content and glad that they were finally where they wanted to be. With each other.
