“Wake up! Wake up! Wake up!” Travis said as he jumped on my bed. My body bounced up and down from the constant motion. I rolled over not wanting to deal with him right now. “Babe, you gonna wake up?” He stopped jumping and climbed into bed with me. He brought his eyes to mine and gave me a stare. “What’s wrong, Lex?” He snuggled up to me as we laid face to face. Looking away, I tried to avoid his question. “Lex?” He pressed again. “I know I’m the goofy one of the trio and it’s hard to take me seriously, but what’s wrong sweetheart?”

“Urrggghh. Everything is wrong.” I blew out an exasperated breath. “I’m so frustrated right now and mad at myself.” I roughly moved the hair out of my face.

“Did I do something to make you mad?” He furrowed his brow. It was so weird seeing Travis act so serious. I found that I really liked this side of him.

“No, it isn’t you,” I said softly.

“Then what is it? Let me guess. You got your period and you’re having really bad cramps or some girly shit like that?” He wiggled his eyebrows at me. It was obvious he was trying to lighten the mood, but it wasn’t working. My heart felt heavy at the moment. If I could just get some balls and tell Nathan how I felt, then things would be so much easier.

“Have you ever wanted something so much that when you have it in your grasp, you’re scared to reach out and grab it?”

He looked down and then up at the ceiling. “Um no. But I think I get it. You're scared of achieving what you want?”

“Yes.” It seemed like he may not have gotten it, but he surprised me. Perhaps he’s a deeper guy than I give him credit for. “I’m not torn or confused; I’m scared shitless. I’m afraid to take what I want.”

“Hmm, I’ve learned that you have to go for what you want, Lex. If you don’t, you could miss out on an opportunity that might change your life. You never know, but you have to try. If you don’t, you’ll be mad at yourself for the rest of your life.”

“You know, you’re right.” I sat up in bed and ran a hand through my hair. “I’m sick of lying in bed, trying to get my head straight. I’m gonna go for what I want.”

“Good girl.” He punched me in the arm.

“Hey now.” I hit him back in the arm and we both tumbled over into laughter.

“So does this mean you’re going to get up and make me some food? I’m starving.” My stomach rumbled. I was hungry as well. I stretched up on my tiptoes and let out a yawn.

“Yes, I’ll feed you.” I grabbed his hand in mine. “Come on piggy.” We both laughed.

Walking into the kitchen, I found Nathan with a beer in his hand and a puzzled look on his face. “Hi,” I told him and walked over and gave him a sideways hug then kissed him on the cheek.
