Hello all! So, this is my newest work, and it's a collection of one-shots! This particular one is a songfic for Kiss Me Slowly by parachute. I HIGHLY suggest playing the song on repeat while reading this. Also, the phrase 'shards of glass' will be included in every chapter. Try to find it in this one, and happy reading!


Stay with me, baby stay with me,

Tonight don't leave me alone.

The couple walking down the street was clearly in love. The seventeen year old girl had shiny, dazzling light brown hair and sapphire orbs that matched her shirt that hinted at the gentle, graceful curves of her body. The boy next to her had dark, chestnut brown hair that was sleek and messed up in all the right places. His eyes matched hers, as glinting emeralds. Together, they looked perfect; light and dark hair, and matching jewels as eyes.

Walk with me, come and walk with me,

To the edge of all we've ever known.

The boy, whose name was Zach, said something that made the girl, Cammie, laugh. He looked into her eyes, and grinned, before leaning in and whispering in her ear again.

I can see you there with the city lights,

Fourteenth floor, pale blue eyes.

I can breathe you in.

When it was time to say goodbye, Zach playfully escorted Cammie to the elevator, before stealing one more kiss. When he finally let her step into the elevator, he watched her ascend to the fourteenth floor with a grin on his face as his emeralds met her sapphires through the glass of the elevator.

Two shadows standing by the bedroom door,

No, I could not want you more than I did right then,

As our heads leaned in.


A couple days later, the couple was reclining on Cammie's couch in her apartment. As the boy teased her, she turned to face him from her spot on his chest. She rolled her eyes with a smile on her face, before touching her lips to his.

Well, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,

But with my eyes closed all I see

Is the skyline, through the window,

The moon above you and the streets below.

As Cammie kissed him, Zach felt like jelly, but all his memories faded away except for this one; The moon smiling down at them, the glimmering skyline and the quiet streets that could be seen through the large glass window.

Hold my breath as you're moving in,

Taste your lips and feel your skin.

When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

He loved her, the feel of her, and the faint vanilla taste of her lips, because she was cammiecammiecammie and he was zachzachzach and together they were cammieandzach (ohsoperfect).

Stay with me, baby stay with me,

Tonight don't leave me alone.

About an hour later, Cammie was sitting curled into Zach's side, and his arm was wrapped protectively around her. "Zach?" She said quietly, looking up at him.

"Yes, Cam?"

"Zach, no matter what happens… will you-will you stay with me?"

He leaned down to kiss her hair, before whispering, "You know I'll always love you. Always and always."

She shows me everything she used to know,

Picture frames and country roads,

When the days were long and the world was small.


"Zach!" Cammie exclaimed, swatting him lightly. "Drive the car correctly."

"Fine, fine." He held his hands up in surrender, before putting his hands back on the wheel. Zach and Cammie had come to visit her grandparents. Of course, Cam showed Zach around the town, introducing him to everyone (which, in actuality, was only about 150 people). Currently, Zach was driving the old farm truck (not carefully at all).

He leaned down to steal a kiss, but Cammie squealed, evading him. "Keep your eyes on the road."

"Fine… but only if you kiss me." Cammie kissed him.


She stood by as it fell apart,

Separate rooms and broken hearts,

But I won't be the one to let you go.

Zach slid down the door, hearing Cammie sobbing from their room. After their fight, she had taken refuge in the bedroom and refused to listen to him. He ran his hands through his hair, only knowing one thing; he could never, ever let her go. So he turned so he facing the door, and said, as loud as he could muster, "Cam, I'm sorry. I'm so, so, so sorry."

Oh, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,

But with my eyes closed all I see

Is the skyline, through the window,

The moon above you and the streets below.


Back at his apartment, Zach was lying on his bed with his eyes closed, reliving the moment when Cammie kissed him in her apartment. He could see it all; the perfectly round moon, the towering skyscrapers, and the almost silent streets.

Hold my breath as you're moving in,

Taste your lips and feel your skin.

When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

He thought of her, the light brown hair that fell perfectly on her shoulders, the melodic laugh, her shimmering sapphire eyes, and the second-to-none smile that made him want to fall at her feet. He knew everything about her, good or bad, flaw or strength. And even though she wasn't a perfect person, she was perfect for him. They were perfectly imperfect.

Don't run away...

Zach knew of Josh, the boy that left wide, jagged shards of glass in her heart and tore her inside out. He also knew that she was insecure because of him; but he just wanted to take her in his arms and whisper that she was the one for him, and he would never, ever leave her.

And it's hard to love again,

When the only way it's been,

When the only love you knew,

Just walked away...

When they had first met, she was so, so broken it killed him. And he never wanted to see her like that again. So he loved her.

If it's something that you want,

Darling you don't have to run,

You don't have to go...

And he wanted to let her know, she would never have to leave. Cammie would have him, and he would crawl to the end of the earth while suffering the greatest pain in the world for her.

Just stay with me, baby stay with me,


So when he was at her apartment again, and she grasped his sleeve and whispered so, so helplessly "Stay with me," his heart broke, and he climbed silently in the bed, before kissing her hair.

Well, I'm not sure what this is gonna be,

But with my eyes closed all I see

Is the skyline, through the window,

The moon above you and the streets below. (Don't let go)

Closing his eyes, he relived that moment once again, a grin spread across his face.

Hold my breath as you're moving in,

Taste your lips and feel your skin.

When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

Afterwards, he opened his eyes and gazed upon the breathtaking girl in his arms, he felt the irresistible urge to protect her, to catch her when she fell, to save her from anything that would touch even a hair on her head.

Oh, I'm not sure where this is gonna go,

But in this moment all I know

Is the skyline, through the window,

The moon above you and the streets below. (Baby, don't let go)

Hold my breath as you're moving in,

I'm so lucky, he thought, She's everything any guy would want; funny, beautiful, kind, and absolutely perfect.

Taste your lips and feel your skin.

When the time comes, baby don't run, just kiss me slowly.

He kissed her hair once again, and as he fell into a peaceful slumber, he realized he could never be happier.
