Love on Top,
Written by WickedSong.
Disclaimer/Note : I do not own Glee, FOX does. I also don't own Love on Top by Beyonce. This is a prompt from three people on tumblr (scared-like-me, crazyhead36 and fabunni (who had this headcanon). I hope that you three especially enjoy this and hopefully I've done your headcanon justice, fabunni!
It was the early sunlight peeking through the window that woke Mercedes up. She gradually opened her eyes, adjusting to the light, as she was brought out of her post-sleep haze. Yawning she looked down to see a strong arm around her waist. For a second she wondered why but when she looked over to see a sleeping Sam Evans she remembered that he had been at her house the night before. Under normal circumstances she would've panicked and wondered if Sam would be able to jump out of her window in order to leave before her parents found out. However, this wasn't a normal circumstance, her parents being at a dental conference for the weekend and her brother away back to school after visiting the previous week.
That was why Sam was here. He had insisted he come and sit with her so she wouldn't feel lonely and hadn't taken no for an answer.
She had insisted she had been fine alone (because she knew the guys were having a gaming tournament of epic proportions over the weekend) but he had opted out of that and shown up at her door at a quarter past seven, grinning in that charming way that both infuriated her but also made her swoon.
Not that she would ever tell anyone that Sam could make her swoon - especially not the boy in question. He already knew way too much about her.
They had watched movies, including, at his insistence, Avatar. They had talked and fooled around a little, never taking it too far but far enough. She found that after months of being apart, of not knowing whether she was ever going to see him again, she couldn't get enough and neither could he.
That was probably how they had fallen asleep accidentally.
Her phone vibrating beside her bed stopped Mercedes' staring at her boyfriend. She checked her phone to find a message from Kurt. She remembered at that moment Sam was staying with the Hummel-Hudson's while in Lima.
"Sam never came home last night. Just checking he's with you."
She wondered what kind of response she could send that would both assure the family that Sam was safe but not imply that they had done anything last night, which they hadn't.
"Yeah, safe and sound :) Don't tell your dad or Carole!"
It took Kurt only a minute to text back.
"Your secret's safe with me ;)"
She looked down at the phone and knew that he wouldn't say anything. She put the phone again by her bedside, but not before checking the time and seeing that it was almost half past eleven. Realising she had slept in she carefully lifted Sam's arm from around her waist and got out of her bed. She wanted to wake him up but she couldn't bring herself to interrupt his sleep - especially when he had that smile on his face. It must've been a really good dream he was having.
Mercedes didn't have to worry about that for long however when she saw him stirring. He slightly opened his eyes, gave a small smirk which she knew was teasingly aimed in her direction and when he closed them again she shook her head. She picked up a magazine lying on her table and playfully hit him on the shoulder with it.
"OK, I'm up."
"You'd better be."
He sighed deeply as he sat up on the bed, one arm holding him up. "Why'd you get up?"
"Because it's nearly midday and we've been in bed all morning." The smile he gave in reply to this was enough to make her blush. She didn't hit him on the shoulder with the magazine again but pointed it at him, all the while giving a playful smile. "Get your mind out of the gutter and back to this planet please."
"Oh come on," he replied. "It's not like we did anything."
"Not the point," Mercedes said back, sitting back on the bed. When she did so he put his arms around her and kissed the top of her head lightly. "Kurt texted me. You shouldn't be falling asleep here."
Sam gave a light chuckle but didn't reply.
Mercedes got out of his embrace and stood up, walking over to her iPod dock. The way she started every day was by listening to music while getting ready. It was a daily routine and not one she was about to change. Not that Sam would've minded.
Beyonce's Love On Top began playing from the speaker's and Mercedes turned to see Sam sitting up, his arms folded over his Jurassic Park T-shirt which he had fell asleep in and he smirked.
"What's that look for?"
"Because you're already dancing to this."
Mercedes suddenly realised that she had been subconciously dancing around the room when the song came on.
She started to sing along with the music, staring directly at Sam, not concerned with making a fool out of herself, as she did her own variation of the dance in the music video.
"Honey, honey, I can see the stars all the way from here, can't you see the glow on the window pane, I can feel the sun whenver you're near, everytime you touch me, I just melt away."
Flirtatiously she sidled over to her boyfriend, who was on the edge of the bed. She put his face in her hands and serenaded him with the words which did remind her of their relationship, teasing him, as she had with the tinsel all the way back in December. Only this time she wasn't fighting it. Well, she could still tease. Just as she went in for a kiss she pulled away with a small smile. He replied to this with a disappointed pout.
"Now everybody asks me why I'm smiling from ear to ear, but I know, nothing's perfect, but it's worth it after fighting through my fears and finally you put me first."
"You're the one I love, you're the one I need, you're the only one I see, come on baby it's you, you're the one that gives your all, you're the one I can always call, when I need you everything stops, finally you put my love on top."
Pointing to him Mercedes belted out the lyrics all the while dancing around her room. Sam only watched her with happiness shining in his eyes and adoration at the girl in front of him. He could only count his blessings that he could be so lucky. He watched as she danced around in her shorts and pajama top with the word 'Diva' emblazoned over it and chuckled as she imitated the dance moves, thanking God, as she did so. It was moments like this that he had missed when they had been apart.
Ooh! Come on baby, you put my love on top, top, top, top, top, you put my love on top, oh oooh! Come on baby, you put my love on top, top, top, top, top, my love on top, my love on top."
Mercedes pulled Sam up from the bed, grabbing his hand, silently asking him to dance with, a question that he also silently responded to, putting an arm around her waist and she put hers around his neck. They danced around the room, laughing wildly as they did so, especially when Sam himself tried to do the dance and failed at it. Mercedes smiled as she sang the rest of the song, laughing when he did so.
Baby, 'cause you're the one that I love, baby you're the one that I need, you're the only one I see, baby, baby, it's you, you're the one that gives your all, you're the one I always call, when I need you everything stops, finally you put my love on top."
Sam laughed, as he fell back on the bed. "You know I love you right?"
He said it so casually that Mercedes was taken slightly aback but she smiled and nodded her head, knowing that he was telling the truth, just by the look in his eyes. She titled her head coyly replied with, "I love you too," and walked towards him, as she had while singing the song but instead of pulling away just before they kissed she went for it, feeling his full lips upon hers, and the usual sense of bliss that always happened when they kissed. Cliche as it was it was like fireworks but more, it was like forever.
Well, she thought, as Sam returned the kiss with intensity and they fumbled back on her bed, maybe Kurt could cover for them...just for a couple more hours.
And there you have it. My first true attempt at fluff. I know I put cute parts in my other stories but I have never done a oneshot that is entirely composed of fluff! I kinda loved writing it (I don't think I'm good at writing it) but I enjoyed writing it.
I'd consider making this a Samcedes prompt story if anyone is interested and wants to give me more prompts. If you are, go to my ask box on tumblr (I am WickedSong), or just PM me, or even leave it in a review if you want to. But only if people want it. If not, it works as a oneshot.
Hopefully, the three who requested this (scared-like-me, crazyhead36 and fabunni) all enjoyed it! I really tried!
