Tyler looks away, bad memories surfacing -- her knee is fine now. He's not going to mention it.

"I'll pick you up later."

Permalink

She squeezes his shoulder briefly. "See you later." And ducks out of the car to head over to the Donovans.

Permalink

The way is long and the night is dark. But she gets there safely.

Permalink

She's tired, and Alex has never been bothered by her eeling her way in through his window. So she does that.

Permalink

Where she will find Elena Gilbert and Alex Donovan cuddled up together on the bed.

Elena seems to be the only one awake, doing something on her phone.

Permalink

She freezes half way through the window. "Shit, 'Lena. Didn't realise you were here tonight-" Realises how that sentence is going to sound. "Wait. No. I- I didn't mean it like- This isn't what it looks like- I- Shit-"

Permalink

"So that means you don't wanna come cuddle? There's room enough for one more."

Permalink

Joss blinks tiredly at Elena, like she can't quite understand what's being said. "I- yes, but- no, I shouldn't intrude, I can-" She stops, because there isn't anywhere else she can go.

Permalink

"Joss. We've known each other our whole lives. Get in the bed."

Permalink

She's still for a moment, and then slides the rest of the way into the room, toeing off her trainers. "You sure?" she asks. (And it's probably just exhaustion making her this unsure, right?)

Permalink

"More hugs for me."

She pokes Alex in his soft and squishy side.

Permalink

Alex starts awake with a giggle and then catches sight of Joss.

He looks between both of the girls. "I remember this dream..."

Permalink

...Okay, this Joss can do.

"Budge over, Lex, I'm snuggling your girlfriend, she is very snuggleable."

Permalink

"This part is new."

But he moves aside and opens up a space for her between them.

Permalink

Elena laughs.

"You get Joss cuddles all the time. It's my turn now."

Permalink

"I'm not sure if I should be flattered or worried," Joss teases, sounding far more sure than she actually feels as she crawls into bed. "Thanks guys."

Permalink

The couple exchange a look, wait for her to get settled and simultaneously hug her.

Permalink

"Always have time for you."

Permalink

She relaxes into the hugs, doing her best to hug them both back. (She has the best friends.)

And well, she always finds it easier to sleep when she's sharing a bed with someone else, and it's been a while since she had a decent night's sleep.

Permalink

"I now know what I've been missing at the fabled Founders shindig. Our parties are better."

Permalink

Joss giggles. "Our parties are the best," she mumbles sleepily. "G'night."

Permalink

More cuddles! And sleep.

Permalink

...Joss is fairly certain there's no where better to fall asleep than snuggled up with Elena and Alex.

Regardless of how much trouble she knows is still coming her way, this is good. She'll sleep well tonight.
