Chapter 13

I woke up on the couch, grumpy and confused. What was this warm thing behind me and why am I not in bed?

"Morning, sunshine." Oh yeah, I forgot all about last night. I thought it had just been a dream. It really is too good to be true, laying with Will, my boyfriend. Imagine that!

I yawned and stretched, then flipped over and nuzzled his chest.

"Morin' Will."

"You know, we still have to go to work today. Your co – workers want to see you again."

"Yes, but I rather stay here with you."

He smiled and his breath made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. "So would I, but we can't. I don't want overtime tonight." He paused, "If you hurry and get ready, I'll come back here after work tonight."

"It's a deal!" I shouted while running to my bedroom.

I quickly got dressed into my usual outfit. Red and white bow, black vest over a white shirt, black pants with the chains on the side and my red glasses, black pants, high heeled shoes, and my lovely red coat. Will hates that I won't wear the typical uniform but he says that this looks better than a dress. Which I really think that he actually gets turned on too much when I look pretty, but he is the boss.

I scampered out of my room and sat on one of the kitchen chairs. Will came out of the bathroom, hair done, glasses on, and looking as strict as usual. I giggled and crossed my legs.

"Will you do my hair, darling?"

"I don't really know how…"

I handed him a brush. "Run this through it. It's easy."

He walked behind me and started stroking my long locks. I enjoyed the feeling of his fingers brushing my back and neck. It was comforting. When Will was finally done, I ran into the bathroom once again and looked at my reflection. He did a good job.

"It's perfect, Will!"

"Shall we get going?"

"Sure."

We walked to work together. I grabbed Will's hand and enfolded it in mine, rubbing my thumb gently over his skin, earning a blush upon his stiff cheeks. As we continued I pointed out other Shinigamis that I used to know in school. I usually hate getting to work, but somehow, Will made it fun. When we arrived at the door, Will decided to sneak me in so I could have a grand enterance at lunch break. I couldn't wait to see the look on their faces! Grell is back! As soon as I was in my office, I started working, catching up on the work that had piled up on my desk for almost a year. It was dull, but eventually the enormous amount of paper dwindled to about fifty.

I checked the time. Lunch! I waited fifteen minutes and then ran down to Will's office.

"Shh…" He whispered.

"I know! But I'm so excited!"

"Follow me. I'll walk in as usual, and then you can come in and be as eccentric as ever," he rolled his eyes.

"That's just another part of me to love, dear."

"I suppose."

He left his office and walked down the hall, to the break area. It was a medium sized room with about ten round tables. It also had a coffee machine and a few vending machines.

Will walked into the room, sitting alone because everyone was too scared to approach him. He sat down and ate. This was my time to shine!

I strutted into the room, heels clacking against the tile floor. It got the attention of all the death gods in the room. They turned to the door, and I bent my knees, stuck my tongue out, and made a rock sign with my hand. The finishing touch, "DEATH!"

"GRELL!"

"Yes?"

Ron, Eric, and Alan raced up to me.

"Where have you been?"

I giggled, "Let me sit down and then I will tell you my worthy tale."

Once I was sitting at their table, I explained everything that had happened. The whole break room was silent, and I liked the attention. When I finished, mouths gaped open.

"And that's how I ended up here." I got up and sat down next to my lover and picked up his fork. I stabbed it into a piece of meat and fed it to him. He went along with it, and jaws in the room dropped lower.

"What's happening, senpai?" Ron asked Will.

"Can I not have a moment with my boyfriend?"

"What!?"

"Yes, Ronnie, you heard that correctly." I stood up and pointed my finger at Ron's chest, poking him with each letter. "He's my B-O-Y-F-R-I-E-N-D"

"Woah. William, you and Grell?"

"Yes," Will stated back nonchalantly.

Ron backed away from us, and I settled myself on Will's lap, picking up his fork and feeding him. He maintained a straight face the whole time.

After lunch, I headed back to my desk and worked until I had finished catching up, ending around seven. Will wasn't done yet so I packed up and headed home.

I settled on the couch with a bucket of popcorn and a novel. It was my favorite, Romeo and Juliet. After reading about five chapters, I heard a knock on the wooden door. Once I opened it, a saw a handsome face.

"About time," I grumbled.

"Sorry. Ronald was having troubles filing the records from some recently departed souls in an accident-"

"I'm joking, darling. I love having you here. Come in."

I welcomed him to sit next to me on the couch. I cuddled up to him and let my hair fall on his chest. He smiled and watched me read.

"Will you read out loud for me?"

"Do you want me to, Will?"

"I just want to hear your voice, read please."

I continued in the book. "When he shall die, take him and cut him out in little stars, and he will make the face of heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with the night and pay no worship to the garish sun."

He closed his eyes with a grin on his face. "Will, do you want to do something different? I know this isn't the most interesting thing for someone unlike me.

"Hmm… You are right. Do you want to lay down in your room?"

"Sure."

We walked to my room, and I changed into my pajamas. I wore a short red nightgown. It had a silky feel to it, and lace at the bottom.

I crawled under the blood red covers and wrapped my legs around Will. He sighed gently and put his hands around my waist, then tucked my head under his.

"Will, can I ask you something?"

"Yes, Grell?"

"If I ever disappear again, can you look for me?"

"Even if you die?"

"I couldn't die."

"Why is that?"

"Being without you is the hardest phase of my life I have ever been through, and I don't want to go through that again."

"I promise. I love you."

"I love you too. Until the day we die together. Just like Romeo and Juliet."


It's done! I hope it was a good ending. I honestly think that I did okay for my first fanfiction. I don't own Romeo and Juliet, and dont know much about it, so I apologize if I got the quote or the details wrong. Thank you so much for sticking with me until the end and thanks again for the views, favorites, follows, and reviews! I plan to write a new fanfiction soon. I love you all!
