A Normal Couple

Chapter Text

I woke up to the sound of tea brewing in my home. Colin had stayed the night last night and he usually gets up before me in order to make a special breakfast for the both of us, but he’s never made tea before, which is why I was as silent as possible and very nervous as I crept through the halls. I poked my head around the corner, unsure of what I was about to witness.

“Morning, Jennifer-“

I jumped back and a small yelp made its way through my lips at the voice coming from behind me.

“Colin! God! You gave me a heart attack!”

He found this quite amusing, and laughed to himself quietly, trying to keep a straight face. “Sorry,” He said softly, looking into my eyes. “I didn’t realize you were awake and I went in the bathroom to brush my teeth…”

He drifted off, realizing I wasn’t paying attention to his explanation. “What’s wrong, darling?” He put his hand on my cheek, and looked into my eyes.

“Sorry-“ I stuttered, trying to refocus on the conversation that he was trying to have with me. “What were you saying?”

He smirked and without looking down or hesitating, he grabbed my hand and led me to the table. “Never mind that, let’s eat.”

We had a quiet meal, not uncomfortable, but not the most social event I’ve partaken in. After we were finished, I proceeded to ask him about the tea and why he’d decided on such an nontraditional beverage for this morning’s breakfast. He calmly explained that he wanted a change and we went on about our morning.


“Hey, you ready?” I asked quietly, peeking into the bedroom.

“Almost,” He muttered. He seemed a bit irritated, maybe even annoyed. I walked over to him from behind and put my arms around his waist, resting my head on his bare back.

“What are you doing?” He said with a rushed voice, his cheeks beginning to turn a light shade of pink.

He turned his body to face mine, and kissed the top of my head. I noticed his flushed cheeks and smiled widely. I always had this effect on him, and I loved it. “Just, admiring your-“

He leaned in slowly while I tried to complete my sentence, but cut me off before I could with a soft kiss. “Admiring my what?” He asked playfully on my lips.

“Come on, we need to go.” I begged. I rested my hands on his smooth chest for a moment, then started to escape his grasp.

“Jennifer,” He teased and pulled me closer to him. His eyebrow lifted at the sight of my bright red cheeks and ears.

I stared down at my feet, refusing to answer the question for a few moments, while he smiled idiotically at my hidden face. “Okay, love. You don’t have to tell me now. But-“ His thought was interrupted by my sudden movement that allowed me to look into his eyes. “But,” He swallowed. “You have to tell me tonight.” I nodded and slightly smiled at his consistency.

“Go finish up, I’ll be out in a couple minutes.” He pulled my hand to his mouth and lightly kissed my knuckles.

“See you in a few.”


We got into his car, that was conveniently parked in front of my apartment. Smirks were exchanged before he started up the engine and pressed the gas pedal. We made it to set in no time, and got out of the car together. Glances from Ginnifer and Josh made their way towards us. I tried to ignore them, but Colin insisted on greeting Josh before we headed to my trailer to practice the upcoming scene. I stood behind him awkwardly while they exchanged greetings, and eventually we made our way to his trailer.

I sat down on his plush couch and looked up at him, reaching out my hand as an invite to join me. He accepted the offer, and took ahold of my fragile fingers, and placed himself beside me, without breaking eye contact. I smiled softly, and shivered at the sight of his cold blue eyes looking into me. He seemed startled by this, “Are you cold? I can get you a blanket,”

“No, I’m okay.” I intertwined our fingers together and leaned into him, resting my head on his shoulder.

“You sure?” God, he’s so stubborn.

“Yes, Colin. I’m sure.” I rubbed his chest with my palm and smiled into his shoulder, trying not to make it obvious that I was doing so.

He rested his hand on my head and sighed deeply. I felt every bit of it and another shiver sent itself down my spine.

“Jen, are you sure you aren’t cold? I can get-“ I quickly lifted my head up and placed my hand on his cheek.

“Colin, please. Shut up.” He laughed lightly at my comment and lied back on the couch, inviting me to join him in doing so. I quickly accepted his invitation and cuddled up into his warmth. I actually was cold, despite it all. But there was no way I’d ever tell him that.


I woke up in his arms, feeling his body move up and down with each breath he took. I looked up at his peaceful face and sighed in gratitude at the sight of waking up next to him.

Someone knocked on the door, urgently it seemed like, and yelled at us to get ready for the scene. Colin muttered in his sleep at the sudden noises, which only made me drool over him more. I smiled at his innocence and replied to whoever was at the door that we would be out soon.

“Colin, honey, get up.” I shook his shoulder until he responded.

“Jen, please, no, just stay here,” He grabbed my arm as I tried to find my way off of the couch. I chuckled at his attempt to keep me with him.

“We have to go shoot a scene. C’mon.” I stood up, a bit disoriented, and grabbed his hand that was hanging off of the side of the couch. I knelt down next to him, and held his hand in both of mine. His eyes fluttered open as I kissed his knuckles and he smiled sleepily at me.

He grunted as he got up from the expensive couch, and I laughed when he almost fell over as soon as he stood up.

“You think that’s funny, huh?” He said in a mischievous voice, speed walking towards me.

“Maybe a little,” Before I could continue, he grabbed my waist and kissed me passionately and aggressively. My hands found their way to his hair, and his found their way to my ass. He lightly grabbed and I sighed into the kiss. After what felt like hours, he pulled away, leaving me breathless. I took a step back, and placed my fingers on my lips. He smirked at what he’d done to me, and gave me an apologetic yet cocky look.

“You alright, Morrison?” He took a step closer to me, smiling widely, and placed his hand on the crook of my back. I nodded at his question, trying not to burst into a pathetic smile that would not only show him how much he got to me, but I’d admit it to myself too. We walked to the shooting location together, and he kept his hand on my back during the entire walk.
