Thanks for the reviews so far. I decided to add a few more chapters. I felt 'This Love' by Maroon 5 fitted in well with Donna and Harvey's relationship! Hope you enjoy and remember to review :)
This love has taken its toll on me
She said goodbye too many times before
And her heart is breaking in front of me
I have no choice cause I wont say goodbye anymore – Maroon 5
After a while Harvey pulled away, just far enough so he could admire her. There she was sat in a pair of pyjamas and her hair scraped back in a ponytail, not the usual $1000 designer dresses he only ever seen her wear. Harvey was in his own world he did not realise Donna frowning and rolling her eyes at him smiling. He was finally brought back to earth when Donna leaned towards him,
"You're into me" was all she said before getting off the sofa and heading towards the kitchen laughing to herself.
She returned from the kitchen with the half drank bottle of wine and sat herself back down near Harvey and poured them both another glass of wine each. They clinked their glasses both holding their gaze as they lifted the glasses, in sync, to their lips.
"For the record" Harvey broke the silence "you were into me first" he said smacking her thigh playfully.
"Guess we'll have to agree to disagree, right now it's time for Pretty Woman" Donna teased before placing the DVD in the telly and bringing over a bowl on popcorn.
They weren't even half way into the movie when Harvey noticed Donna had fell asleep, she had her legs curled to the right and had her head resting on his shoulder. This wasn't how he usually spent his Thursday nights but he could definitely get used to it. He tried to get up to switch off the telly without waking her but it was proving to be an impossible task. In the end he shuck her arm a little to wake her. She looked at him through squinted eyes.
"I think its time you went to bed" he said softly whilst rubbing her arm
With her eyes still squinted she simply nodded and followed his orders getting off the sofa and towards her bedroom. She got by the bedroom door and turned round to address him "are you coming to bed or are you planning on staying there all night?"
Here he was, in Donna's apartment, at 11pm on a Thursday night, getting invited to bed by the sleepy redhead. There was a small possibility that Mitchell could have been in her bed 48 hours earlier but he wasn't going to turn down this offer. Not tonight.
He stood up from the sofa with the 2 empty wine glasses in his hand, empty bottle tucked under his arm and the half empty bowl of popcorn in his other hand.
"I'll be in in a minute" he smiled
He felt his way around the dark bedroom not wanting to switch on the light incase she had fallen back asleep. He made his way to the right hand side of the bed – the side he slept on all those years ago- and sat himself down before pulling his tshirt over head and placing it on the floor next to him. Donna hadn't spoken so he presumed she had gone back to sleep. He pulled the covers over himself and flung his left arm over her body, he kissed the back of her neck and nuzzled his head into the nest of red hair.
Donna awoke during the middle of the night, she looked at the alarm clock and noticed it was 3am. She could feel the warmth from his body, his arm wrapped around her. She felt safe. She turned her body around so she was able to face him. Harvey Specter asleep was one thing she did not think she would see again, but Harvey Specter asleep in her bed was something she thought she definitely wouldn't see again. After admiring him sleeping he then moved off his side and onto his back, he pulled Donna into his grasp again. She rested her head on his chest, his arm around her body once more. He then flicked her chin up towards his face with his index and middle finger and kissed her on the lips.
"I love you" he said before shutting his eyes and drifting back off to sleep.
"I love you too" Donna replied and squeezed his body, she too drifted off.
Harvey was woken up by his phone vibrating on the bedside table next to him. The room was pitch black and their was no daylight creeping in from the gaps in the curtains, it must of still been the middle of the night. He reached for the phone and noticed Jessica's name flashing on the screen, it was 04:54am. Donna had moved in her sleep and was now facing the opposite way. He crept out of the bed and made his way into the living room.
"I hope you have a good reason for waking me up at this time" Harvey said with an annoyed tone to his voice.
"Jones has made a move on Johnston and is threating to take his company. He's claiming Johnston offered him a bribe to keep quiet and what's worse he's arranged a vote with the shareholders to get Johnston out of the business. Is that a good enough reason?" Jessica replied with the same tone as Harvey.
"I know this is your case but I've asked Louis to make his way to the firm and help you and Mike figure something out" she continued.
"Ill be there in an hour" he responded before putting the phone down angrily.
He sneaked back into the bedroom to retrieve his tshirt. He thought best not to wake Donna so instead decided to leave her a note explaining the situation. He changed out of his sweatpants and put his jeans and shoes on and made his way out her apartment and onto the streets of New York to get a taxi back to his condo.
Within the hour he had been home and changed into one of his suits and was inside his office at Pearson Specterr Litt accompanied by Mike and Louis. All 3 men looking tired and restless considering they had all been called out of their beds during the middle of the night: Harvey had no hair gel on his hair, Mike kept dosing off and Louis hadn't had a shave. They all sat in silence re-reading the by-laws of Johnston's company trying to find a way to postpone the vote that was about to take place within the next 5 hours.
Donna's alarm clock went off at her usual time, 06:00am, she stopped the alarm and turned to her right expecting to see Harvey in a huff because of how early it was. She was wrong. The right hand side of the bed was empty. She threw on her dressing gown and walked into the living room and noticed his shoes and coat had gone but his sweatpants were folded up neatly on the arm of the sofa. Strange. She cursed him inside her head, how typical of him to kiss her, sleep in the same bed as her, tell her he loves her and then runaway the next morning as if nothing had happened.
She made her way into the kitchen and flicked on the coffee machine. She was going to need a triple shot expresso to get her through today. She had it all pictured out in her head, she would be sitting at her desk and he would carry on as normal. As if he did not come over to her place for a 'girls night'. Harvey was never going to change; he was stuck in his ways. Afraid of his past which made him the way he was.
She went into the draw to get out a teaspoon and noticed a piece of paper, with a few words on it, left on the side with what looked like Harvey's writing. She started to read wondering how he was going to get himself out of this mess this time.
Jessica called at 5am there's been an emergency with the Johnston case. Me, Louis and Mike have been called to the office to try and fix it. Sorry I left without waking you I didn't want to disturb you! Make sure you're free tonight at 7:30pm because I'm taking you on a date ;) see you in work – H x
I'll fix these broken things
Repair your broken wings
And make sure everything's alright
My pressure on your hips
Sinking my fingertips
Into everything inch of you
Cause I know that's what you want me to do- Maroon 5
