I was pretty surprised by Tom's question from the night before. I really didn't expect it but, I was pretty happy that he asked me out too. Of course I said yes. We decided to go to a restaurant tomorrow night at eight. I felt a bit nervous but then I shaked it off. Tom left afterwards and I finally got some sleep. He was an amazing guy and... I found myself daydreaming all day about him. Even at work.
"Y/N?" I was putting some whipped cream on a coffee but I was clearly missing the cup.
"Oh yes?" I snapped out of the trance and gave him all of my attention. "What is it?" "Nothing," he replied looking back at the cash register, "you just seem weird. Everything okay?" He seemed pretty concerned.
"I'm fine Sam, don't worry." I smiled.
"So what are you doing tonight?" "N-nothing? Why are you asking all of a sudden?" Ok... I noticed I made a mistake but, it was too late.
"Just wondering if you would like to come to a restaurant with Elysia, a friend and I."
"Oh I'm pretty busy though." I mentally slapped myself.
"You just said you weren't doing anything."
"I mean... I have a lot of reading to do."
"Since when do you read?" I gasped.
"Excuse me I read all the time, just not at work." I passed by him and was about to go toward the customer who asked for this coffee.
"Okay, then let me amend my previous statement," he said openeing the cash register, "I didn't know you could read." I rolled my eyes and flipped him off... subtly.
When I was closing the café with Sam he asked again, "so are you going out?" "Umm... yeah I am." I answered nervously.
"With who?" I didn't know how to respond that. With your brother. It didn't sound that bad right? I don't even know why I don't want to tell him.
"A friend." "Oh. Well," a car drove in front of us, "have a goodnight Y/N." I waved goodbye as he left with his girlfriend.
"Hello." I jumped and turned around quickly.
"Jesus Tom, what is it with you and scaring people?!" I put a hand over my chest.
"Well, you seemed to not tell Sam you were going on a date with me so I decided to linger in the shadows." "Linger?" I laughed.

Sorry i havent posted in a while. Might not post for a few days. But heres the next chapter. Sorry its not the right cover. “Here let me see her” I say turning to Tom. I turn to Jason and set her gently in his arms. “Keep her safe ok. Take her in and here.” I hand him my knife Incase. He mods and runs off. “We need to check the perimeter.” I say to Tom. He nods and runs off.
We finish up and meet where we started. “No sign of anything.” He says and we start walking.” How far from camp?” He ask. “Maddi Jason and I would take maybe 2 days walking. But with a baby now..”
“Hey look at em. Everything is fine. We’re safe and together again.”he says smiling. “I’ve missed you so much you don’t even know.” He says pulling me into a hug. I embrace it and inhale. He still smells like he used to. I’ve missed him. All of them. “Tom.” “Yeah?” “Are they still alive? Harry Sam Z and..” “Y/N!” Jason calls from the doorway. “Sophie’s hungry!” He says. “Ok let’s go I say walking away from Tom. “Ok we don’t have much but it’s something.” I say hand Jason the food. “I’m pretty sure she’ll eat anything.” He say feeding her. She finishes up and falls asleep. I turn to Tom looking out into the sky. “Hey Jason finish up and head to be u need ur sleep.” I say and walk over to Tom. “What are you looking for?” I say staring at him. “Nothing.” He day looking at me. “Your waiting for something.” I laugh and run out the door.
I see y/N run out and I follow. She climbs up the side of the building but I lose her. I get to the top and something grans me and a light flashes. “Holy Crap! Don’t do that!” I say. Y/N stands there laughing. Lyon should have seen your face!” She says laughing. She walks over to the edge and sits. I follow and sit next to her. “I’ve missed hearing your laugh.” I say. “I’ve missed it too.” She says smiling. She lays her head on my shoulder and looks of into the distance. A few minutes pass and she breaks the silence. “I’ve missed this.” She says. “What?” I ask. “Spending time with you talking. Not worrying about this world. I miss haz and Z and the twins and paddy, everyone.” She say with tears in her eyes.
